A couple of weeks ago Hurricane Sandy blew her way through Maryland. We were lucky and only lost power overnight. I had been proaactive and overly cautious and booked a hotel room for me and the kids since Jamie had to work. It was like a mini-vacation for the kids and believe it or not - I did manage to get my 1st hotel workout in!
I've been working out pretty frequently lately between following ChaLean Extreme and Tina Reale's the Best Body Bootcamp workouts. My poor heart rate monitor has been all over the place and flat lining - even after I got the battery changed in the watch and the transitter. Jamie said it was probably from OVERuse! So I finally broke down and ordered a new one. It's the same model (Polar) and style (FT4) as my last one - but in pink!
And lastly - the family - we're all doing good. The kids have finished their 1st quarter of 7th grade and have really good grades - except for math. Math is definitely our challenge this year for both kids. The teachers aren't using math textbooks - everything is either on-line or worksheets, so when the kids have questions I have to google the math problems and try to review where they're at so that I can then explain it to the kids. One night last week my son and I were up til 11:30pm working on his math.
Oh - and THESE went out this morning in the mail! Yep - I'm throwing my hubby a birthday party this year! It's in 3 weeks so it's time to get planning - Pinterest here I come :-)
