Musical Kongs

Yesterday started off with me sitting outside with a BLANKET enjoying the cool morning, drinking coffee and writing my post. I took the girls for a nice long walk too.

Meal #1: Oats with protein powder

Next on the agenda: lifting weights

I ran outside for 20 minutes and then headed downstairs for 3 sets of the following:

  • Flat bench: 20lb DB, 15 reps
  • One arm rows: 20lb DB, 15 reps
  • Biceps curls: 15lb DB, 15 reps
  • Triceps kickbacks: 15lb DB, 15 reps
  • Front/Lateral shoulder raises: 10lb DB, 10 reps
  • Abs: hanging knees to chest: bodyweight, 20 reps
  • one minute of jumping jacks

After cooling off, I was starving and still had french toast on the brain.  We had errands to run anyway, so off we went. I ordered egg whites, turkey sausage and french toast.

One of our errands was to pick up a Kong for Sara.  She wants to chew up all their toys and I don’t want to keep feeding her rawhide to save them, so a Kong it is.  Of course, if Sara is getting a Kong, Piper and Katy are going to need one too.

They weren’t quite sure what to do with it at first and Katy and Sara carried theirs around like lollipops (because the treat inside was sticking out enough for them to hold on to) looking for a place to start eating it without the risk of the other stealing it.

It was super nice out, so I took them outside to enjoy their treats.  Piper started out in sun.

But, eventually, joined Katy and Sara in the shade of the Oak Tree.

The rest of the day was spent playing musical Kongs because they were all sure that what the other had must be better than their own.

I hung around outside reading and soaking up some sun before heading indoors for some food.

Leftover deviled chicken with carrots and ranch.

Then I got a big surprise.

My Rue La La package arrived!!

I love getting packages.  I don’t order much off the internet because I want to support our local economy (Justin has guilted me into this feeling), but when I do, it’s so fun when it arrives!

Here is where I should have a picture of me in it, but it’s a little too small.  I was still going to put it on and zip it as far as I could so you could get the idea, but then I looked at myself in the mirror and well, you don’t want to know how many days it had been since I washed my hair.  So, the first time I wear it, I’ll post a picture!

My afternoon snack was some shrimp with cocktail sauce.

After I made that yummy BLT the other day, Justin only got a bite of mine.  So, he was wanting his very own for dinner (and I may have brought it up because it was so darn good, I wanted another one!).

BLT’s for dinner with some veggie Booty.

I decided to go for a walk in the evening to burn some more calories.  I took all three dogs with me for 20 minutes and then dropped Katy and Piper off and took Sara by herself for another 25 minutes.  Katy and Piper’s little legs just can’t go for that long.

I hopped in the shower when I got home.  The hair could not go another day.

We settled in for the night and watched Big Brother.  I was pleased with how everything turned out.  I was happy to see that Shelly did not allow herself to be bullied by Jeff. Now if the Newbies can just stick together and get rid of Jordan and Rachel, I’ll be happy!

It’s already Friday!  This week flew by!  I mentioned in my Monday post that I was ready to be sore again and I definitely made that happen this week. Success!  I hope you all had successes in whatever goals you had for yourself this week.
