Saturday tradition and 300 rep challenge workout

I haven’t been able to post last Thursday’s workout, but it was awesome, we paired it with the 300 rep ab workout so I guess technically that’s 600 reps!

We started out with a 5 minute jog warm up.

We also added 6 line sprints every 3 workout moves.

Tricep kick back

Lateral raise

Wall sit w/ arm tap

Wall mountain climbers


Saturday’s run was very difficult to me. I told myself I want to get to 3 miles and if I wasn’t in a grove I would get off and do the elliptical. At 3 miles I felt great and made it to six miles. My average pace was the slowest to date, I finished six in just under an hour. But I know I have to listen to my body and do what it tells me!

After I get done at the gym, I always bring my kids back to get some energy out. We use our college gym, and they have a basketball court so we take the kids in there to shoot around and play. Cael has been working really hard at basketball and he will start officially next week. Devin does a great job working with him, and he is quite the little player for it only being his first year.

My little kids always like to join in the workout fun:





These are not staged pictures and I’m glad I was quick enough to snap them. It makes my heart happy to see my kids being active, and I hope that I am a good example to them. We do our best to get them out of the house and into environments where they can be active in a kid way:)

Where do you work out?

Fellow parents, how do you get your kids out of the house?

RZR Riding the last weekend of summer:(

I wasn’t joking when I said we were trying to squeeze in as many fun things as possible! Last Friday, we headed up to the Big Horns, and took our RZR up to do some trail riding. I am not a thrill seeking gal, so a nice little trail ride is right up my alley:
We stopped along a creek and the kids had a blast playing in their underwear:)
Yes my son is wearing Diego underwear that he has had since he was 4, haha. My kids are so skinny. I guess I should get rid of those! The kids seriously could have played there all day, so we will definitely be hitting up that spot again before winter comes.
Our ward in our church was up there for a campout, but since the cabins were not available to sleep in I was not tent camping again! Twins+tentcamping=no beuno! So we just went up for the evening, and enjoyed seeing all of our church friends for a while and headed home. That is my kind of camping:)
The next day I got up to do my usual Saturday morning run with this cute girl:
We ran 7 miles at a decent pace since Tonya is coming off of an injury. I really enjoy running with someone else it makes the time go by so much quicker! Talking the whole time also helps build up my lung capacity.

Do you like to run alone or with a buddy?
