Hey friends! Hope you had a good weekend.
I just wanted to pop in to share a few pics from mine, along with a quick workout!
The major highlight of the weekend was, without a doubt, Mason’s new train set (from Grandma/us):
Technically, it’s for his birthday, which is still a month way. But since the weather’s been so crappy and I feel so guilty keeping him trapped inside all day, we decided to unveil it a little early. Talk about a HIT.
It did take us 3 hours to put together on Friday night (we = mostly Brent. Credit where credit’s due!) but Saturday morning was like Christmas. We actually draped a sheet over it so he’d eat breakfast/get dressed before the playfest began.
When he wasn’t playing with the train set, he was all about books. He’s still so, SO obsessed.
Current fav is Goodnight Moon–he loves to be quizzed about every single object in there. (Where’s the mouse? Where’s the clock? Where’s the elephant?) He’s constantly surprising me with how many words he knows–including things I know I never taught him!
On Saturday, it was 25 degrees and we bravely tried to go outside.
It was so windy and cold that I ended up hiding in the garage half the time. Then, Mason dumped a bunch of snow down the front of his coat. Game over.
Yesterday, I was planning on writing up a new workout and then testing it during Mason’s nap, but I got sidetracked ironing and hanging curtains (again), doing laundry, and hanging things on the wall (home decor improvements = never ending).
So when I finally got around to working out, I decided to completely wing it. (Something I’ve never actually done before!) I had a vague idea in my head of what I wanted to do–some short bursts of treadmill running along with basic bodyweight strength training. Then, I decided to plan out the strength sections on the fly by picking one exercise from each of these groups: Legs, Arms, Balance, and Core.
This was the result (written up after the fact):
Single leg deadlifts (weight/ball optional)
I might have to try that more often. The on-the-fly planning thing definitely kept me engaged and the time FLEW!
P.S. FETC (fast enough to count) is a totally made-up acronym I use when I can’t decide how fast to go on the treadmill. As long as it’s FETC (“fet-see,” haha), based on what my body feels like at that second, I’m happy with it.
What’s something you did over the weekend?
Are you a fellow dedicated workout planner or do you wing it often?
