Workouts, though intense (as usual) have been a bit off this week. I've been training with Kevin in the mornings this week which I'm not really used to. Normally, I do my own thing in the morning for about an hour and a half, but I don't weight train til the afternoons. While there have been mornings here & there that I lift at 5:30am, it's not really an every day occurrence for me. On top of that, somebody (not me!) got a bad case of poison ivy and ran away from my training session yesterday morning! And I mean that literally--although it was more of a quick walk away. Anyhow, everyone is doing better now and I was back at it this morning. 35lb dumbbells on chest press today--hells yeah! I never really made note of what weights I started off with when I first started on this training journey, and now that I think about it, that would have been a smart idea. DUH, Liz!! Do you keep track of the weight #s you lift, or do you just know you're going heavier??
This week was also slightly different in that Kevin and I incorporated an ab day--just abs. It was good and a nice change from the ab
And guess what! Missing a measly 20 minutes of cardio has done wonders for my
So now it's time for me to admit that this is getting a little out of hand. And by this, I mean my mom actively trying to steal Archie from me! At first I thought she was joking. I knew she wanted two pups, but I didn't think she was serious at all. Then, she kept offering to pay me for Archie--and she still is! Although, I'm a smart girl--I told her if she wants him, that he's worth more now, "The $150 I paid for him, plus an additional $100 for each additional month old he is." I played right into her greedy little puppy-grubbing hands! When she offered to watch him for me during the hot summer months, I agreed. That was Step 1. Now Archie and his brother, Murdoch, are inseparable. So Step 2 is obviously to make me feel guilty for wanting to separate the two of them. She even had the audacity to tell me "He can still be yours. But you can just get another dog when you have more time!"Ummm SAY WHAT, MOMMA K?! A. She didn't even know what mini schnauzers are until I got one! She thought they are yorkies! B. She thought the Craigslist post was a scam. C. She didn't even want one til she saw mine--true story! And D. I raised him! That's like asking a mother to give up their baby. No thank you, Mom--but I can give you the number to the SPCA so you can get another dog "when you have more time."
Any advice on how to get my lil Archie back?? My sister officially has more pictures together with my dog than I do! Excuse me while I go whine. Or better yet--I do have a house key to Momma K's house...
