30 Day Shred Challenge Days 7-10

Days 7 and 8 were spent at my church participating in a youth even my hubby organized. Youth Ministry is something that we have been involved with for a while and I love it.

Day 7:

Day 7's workout was upstairs in a clasroom at our church. I enjoyed that I was able to use the flat screen TV to see Jillian, Anita and Natalie. Really nice! Lol. Gotta get one of those for my room!

The room I was in was directly over the space that the students were in for their large group session, so I tried being quiet when I jumped and moved. I was totally wearing a pair of shoes that were not the best for the workout, so my feet hurt afterward. Ugh. I didn't want to skip it all together. Just wanted to stick to it. Ya know?

Day 8:

The morning of day 8 I woke up with a HORRID cold. I had cold sweats and chills. I am told I had a fever, but never actually took my temp. I went to church that morning and came home soon after. I took a power nap for about 10 minutes at one point in the day. I was hoping for something a bit longer, but it never panned out. :( I believe that night I worked out at about 7-8ish. It was by far the WORST workout I've had. I felt so sick. I just promised myself I would do all 30 days no matter what. :)

Day 9:

I dragged my feet ALL day 9. I did NOT want to work out. My cold felt super strong and I was drained by the lack of quality sleep. At about 8pm however I caved in and finally worked out. I did not use any weights. I took it easy on the cardio and stuck to punches. My daughter was so cute. She encouraged me all the way through. She generally works out with me each night. :)

Day 10:

I did my final day of level 1 last night! I am feeling better for sure too. The cold is still around. I still have congestion and a cough. My body still aches, but at least I don't feel as rotten as I did 2 days ago. I tried to do as much of the versions of the workout that Natalie did instead of Anita. I failed miserable and used a lot of the modified versions. Oh well, either way I pushed myself. The 1st set of jumping jacks still hurts my kneew pretty badly, but I did them anyhow. There was a MAJOR difference from day 1 to day 10! :)

I had initially planned on doing level 1 for 30 days, but I had to allow one of my students to borrow my 2lb weights last week and figured that since my weights had changed I could jump into level 2 after 10 days. So here goes! Tuesday (2/22/11) will be day 11 and my first day of level 2! I am kinda nervous!

Well, that is the last few days of shredding for ya!

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
