MHB- Week 22- Weights

 This week has been alright. I feel less focused on working out because I lowered my days of exercise to three. I am not sure yet, if that's a good or a bad thing. However, I am working out with heavier weights, which I feel pretty good about. I probably should have introduced the heavier weights months ago though.

 Day 1- Strength and Endurance. I snapped a photo of George St. Pierre explaining something during the warm up. I also wanted to show off my new eight pound weights that I scored at a garage sale for five dollars! It was definitely time for me to increase my weights by a few pounds. The five pounds was working but I know that after Monday's work out, my arms were feeling it.


Rest Day. It turned out to be a nice day and Rob, Alina and I went for a warm, evening walk. I can smell summer in the air and I'm so happy over it, I could burst.


 Day 2- Fight Conditioning. I finally nabbed Rob before his workout Wednesday morning to snap a few photos of me during my workout. Nothing really new to report. Finished workout; check!

 Rest Day. I walk to work everyday and I have been walking to work for the last nine years.. this is the first time that I've actually stopped to look around at the beauty all around me. Even though I was running late, I had to take a moment to capture the gorgeous spring flowers along my way. I probably looked crazy stopping to take a picture of every flower, but it was fun and Thursday was an absolute summer like day!

Day 5- Abdominal Strength and Core Conditioning. The sun was shining, my mood was awesome and the workout was incredible! It was a fantastic way to end my week of workouts! I didn't have a photographer this morning so I took a picture of GSP doing the back bend. (Well he's going into the back bend, his head is still on the ground.) The next photo is of my 'sweet' workout set up every morning. I can't wait to have a bigger house! The bottom picture is of my tummy relaxed and then flexing. Looks like things are still tight and together, so I think I'll continue with the three days for now.

I love Friday for two reasons; it's Friday and it's jeans day at work. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before. I love how happy I feel this morning, before I head to work. I just love the idea that I don't have to go to work the following day. I'm going to link up with Yoga Pants today because Rob played a song I really liked last night. I thought- oh, perfect song to link up with! Florence and the Machine's "Kiss With A Fist."

$5 for those weights?! Thats the deal of a century! I was looking at some in target and they were $8 each!
I looooove your flower pics! I have been trying to take pictures of them everytime I see them as well because lord knows we had one crazy winter and at one point I didn't know if I would see flowers again!
Happy Friday lady! And yay for jeans day!!
