Back to the Real World

Hello there!

Is everyone ready to jump back into the real world? I haven’t decided all the way yet, but my lunch is packed and tonight’s dinner is prepped in the slow cooker, so I am off to a good start. 

The past few days flew by, but were great. The only picture I took was of the girls’ booties in the bathtub. Although it was super cute, I went against my overhearing nature in hopes that Ina will still speak to me once she learns how to use the internet. A few highlights:

- Church (awesome, awesome sermon) and then we re-took our membership class for a refresher.

- The Chiefs winning the AFC West!

- Cleaning out Dan’s side of the closet. This took most of yesterday but was so worth it. My eyes are happy and I get a dopamine rush when I walk in the closet. 

- Food prepping like a boss. I chopped veggies and roasted some and kept others fresh, plus made an egg bake and some energy balls. Dan is also trying to clean up his eating, and I am trying not to be too enthusiastic to scare him away. How much spinach can you give a guy before he rebels? 

- I attended a distant family member’s visitation service last night. It is always sad when someone passes, but this woman lived a vibrant life and I loved seeing pictures of her, both young and old. 

Sunday was a rest day, but Monday’s workout was a doozy (designed by Fitness Tiger KC):

  • Warm-up: 4 Rounds
    • 10 start jacks
    • 10 squats
    • 10 frog sit ups
    • 10 push ups
  • Skill Work:
    • KB snatch with a 4 step cue
    • Low swing - clean - high swing - snatch
  • Partner Work-out:
    • 400 m run (together)
    • 100 burpees (split)
    • 400 m run
    • 100 snatches (30# KB)
    • 400 m run
    • 100 walking lunch with plate overhead (35#)
    • 400 m run
    • 100 kettle bell jump squat (20#)
    • 400 m sand bag carry (110#)

I really liked the skill work we did you can’t help but feel super cool with throwing a kettle bell around. One of the coaches was my partner for the workout, which kept me motivated. However, this workout made me realize how out of running shape I am. Those 400 m runs were tough…particularly with the work in between. Perhaps a run every once in a while wouldn’t hurt anything, huh? 

I hope you have a wonderful day! <3
