This week was definitely a bit different then the past several. I took my cross training a little differently due to traveling, but I did the best I could.

Monday – Elliptical and Weights

20 minutes on the elliptical and weights.

Tuesday – Rest

Wednesday – Track Walking

I walked around the outside track for an hour and 20 minutes while Wes did his track workout.

It was a beautiful day and SO nice to be outside!

Thursday – Rest

Friday – Walking, Weights, and Abs

30 minutes walking at a 1% incline at 3.5 mph followed by some arm and ab work.

Saturday – Walking, Arc Trainer, and Abs

45 minutes walking at a 1% incline at 3.5 mph, 20 minute son the arc trainer, and 10-15 minutes ab work.

Sunday – Rest


Total Weekly Recap:

Workout Days – 4

Rest Days – 3


I did have a few more rest days this week due to the fact that I don’t have access to a pool to get in non-weight bearing workouts. I try to take it slower and be much more careful without that.


Saturday’s workout was done at my parent’s gym.

I was going to walk outside, but when the parents and my husband headed to the gym I decided to tag along.

I started off with 45 minutes walking beside Wes. I didn’t have any leg pain and I took it easy.

I really loved being on the treadmill today, I don’t know why but it just felt nice to be back at the gym on a treadmill. It’s all mental sometimes.

After some ab work and a few weights I finished it out with 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer.

I did notice some tightness in my leg (I guess that is the best way to describe it) so today will without a doubt be a rest day.


We are heading to my in-laws today and then will start another round of interviews on Monday afternoon.

I think it is an understatement when I say I miss these faces:

I worry about them about as much as a mother worries about her child.  Our dog is staying with a friend but the cats are home alone with someone checking on them.

I hope they are having a blast, but I look forward to seeing their smiley faces again soon!


November is National Adoption Month.

As I have mentioned before, both my brother and myself were adopted at a very young age.

I have the best parents in the world, but will always be forever grateful to my biological mother for giving me this amazing gift of family and for being so brave at just 15 years old.

Adoptions is an amazing thing for so many families and there are so many children out there looking for families.

It will always have a special place in my heart, and that is why I wanted to share.


Do you know anyone or have you yourself been touched by adoption in some way?

How were your workouts this week?
