Big Chop, Big Shop

Hello, Hip Huggers!! I’ve missed you. Feels like forever since I’ve blogged!! Hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving with family, friends, laughs, and of course some good ol’ this…

Decided to chop off all that God awful bronze hair. That means I’ll be rocking the hats buzz for awhile…

But enough about life, this IS a random fitness blog right?
Cardio all day… breezy 5 miler. I missed you, mileage.

Home for a little leftover recovery…

Did a billion things today. Let’s just say I murdered Old Navy. We also crashed Walmart. Went in looking for a marked down juicer, wasn’t marked down enough so, I’ll just wait…. online. You’re just too mental for me, Walmart.

Whattt? Can’t believe I found this in there, and for $8! Saves me a trip Uptown.. Yessss!

Walmart also had all their spring/summer workout gear on clearance. Had to get a size big in shirts but hey, $14 for the whole lot! Can’t beat it with a stick!

Just in time because I’ve been very picture heavy on Instagram…

Did you start your Christmas shopping this weekend?

Happy Friday.. Hello Weekend!

My day started with a boom! Well, rather a bark. I accidentally left my Schnorkie outside last night and he reminded me and my friendly neighbors of that neglect error this morning by barking at absolutely nothing… but 5am. You’re on thin ice, Mr. Bruce Wayne..

Last night’s dinner was delish! Brown rice, paired with roasted asparagus tossed in olive oil and garlic, and grilled Jerk chicken breast. I posted it to Instagram and had the whole world drooling, lol

Asparagus is surely my favorite green, next to green beans. Its $3 a bunch at Kroger, so (3 bunches for 7 people) not all that budget friendly. But I squeeze it in somehow, and the kids love it!!
It’s been such a week for me! Starting this blog (and learning how to use it) has been so much work fun, and I have loved every minute of it! Add that to running, lifting, strength training, recitals, church, being a wife and oh yeah, 5 kids…ahh!! I am more than ready to cap off this week and enjoy my weekend!
So, I got my last good workout in: Leg Day!

and have – unless it’s something special (running a 5k, walking with my neighbor, gymflow with hubby, etc.). All of which are special to me by the way! 🙂
Here’s my full Leg Day Workout. These aren’t my max .. just today’s circuit.

Weekends are my rest days and I don’t regret one minute of them. Getting my house cleaned, cooking good food, and lounging with my family is the best therapy and reward for a busy week! I can’t ask for better time spent!!
Does your weekend include working out/running? Do you schedule workouts or just go with the flow?
