We got friendly with some of the locals...
We made it home just in time to grab some lunch and head out for a baseball game. I love days like this when we get to spend time together doing stuff we all love to do. The woods were so calm and peaceful...everyone covering their head to avoid being hit by hundreds of falling acorns. The smell of the woods always makes me feel so happy. I spent a lot of time in the woods growing up - just running around and exploring. I forget sometimes how fun it was as a child and that my kids don't have the same opportunity that I had to just head off to the woods anytime they want. We actually have to find woods and take them there. I think we'll make this a regular Sunday expedition. It'll be nice to watch how much the woods change in the coming months.
See how happy this makes them?
As far as last weeks stats go, I am so behind. I initially planned on posting them day by day to keep myself motivated and accountable but that didn't work at all because last week was crazy. I'm going to try to post the previous days stats the next morning because after I get the kids tucked in, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of the computer.
Tuesday: HCC, a rather pathetic 1 set of arm exercises with weights
Wednesday: Run/Walk 2 miles (not sure what was going on here, just wasn't feeling it), 1/2HCC (trying new moves), X train 12 min.

(despite my overindulgence I managed to lose one pound but I have a feeling that its back since I ate pancakes for breakfast, didn't keep count at all today and am drinking my
So, what did I learn this week? I need to work harder- stick to my plan and not slack off. I need to really watch my evening snacking. I thought that my portion sizes were too big, but what I found out is that I tend to eat great all day then grab little bits of things to snack on while I'm cooking or after dinner which is doubly bad because I run in the morning. All that crap is sitting around in my gut all night. I also need to go back to regular weight workouts at least for upper body. I have some bicep definition and my shoulders look okay, but I'm carrying a lot of extra (loose) tricep around and it's very unflattering.
Oh, and if I'm going to drink black and tans I should probably cut back a little during the day, right?

Run 4 days - 30-35 min.
Strength train 3 days - 2 upper body, 1 lower
