Holy Cow, it was Hot yesterday!  It was one of those days when you walk outside and instantly feel moist.  It’s summer in the Midwest and I love it, but I was thankful for air conditioning yesterday!


I started the day off with a four mile run, early!  It was already pretty steamy, but it felt really good.  I run better in the heat (early morning heat).  I came home and leashed up the girls for their walk before it got too hot.  They were thrilled!

After getting everyone up and out of here for the day, I headed downstairs to lift some weights. It had been a while!

  • 3 sets/ 10-12 reps
    • Barbell flat bench
    • Chest fly
    • Moving pushups
  • 3 sets/6-8 reps
    • Triceps extension with rope attachment
    • Triceps kick backs
    • Triceps french press


After my steamy run, a cold and creamy protein shake was the only thing that sounded good:

Still red faced and soaked in sweat! (only two little dry triangles left on my sports bra. love it.)

After lifting weights, we were going to head up to the hospital to see my Stepmom, so I snacked on some Granola while I got ready and waited for Justin to get done with his workout :

We spent a couple of hours at the hospital.  My Stepmom is doing so much better with each day.  She is gaining confidence in her hip.  Getting in and out of bed is the hardest part right now, but it’s getting easier.  My dad and one of my brother’s showed up, so we felt good about leaving. We had some errands we needed to run, but first lunch.

We had never been to Freddy’s before and the first night I was at the hospital everyone was talking about how good it was, so we needed to try it.  Plus, it was on our way.  I got the veggie burger, fries and pink lemonade.  It was really good!

All I really wanted was ice cream though!

I think because of the heat, food didn’t really sound good yesterday, just frozen desserts!  So, I ate one of these next:

I finally decided I better fix us some real food or I would just eat that whole box for dinner and drag Justin down with me.  So, cashew chicken with a fried egg hit the spot for both of us last night.
