As my second official week of my work-free summer comes to an end, I look back and realize again just how much I’ve been enjoying my time off. First of all, there has been a lot of time spent at my grandparents’ home and pool in this 100+ degree weather with all of my nephews, niece, cousins, and cousins’ babies.
That picture shows 8 of my grandparents’ 10 great-grandchildren. Pretty amazing. I’ve been happily assisting my sister capture some pretty unbelievable shots.
Occasionally, Stephanie posts her tips and tricks on Facebook to allow fans to see just how she is able to get some of her incredible pictures. (For the real picture, I am obviously edited out.) Just yesterday, I got to help with a newborn twin shoot.
Double the babies. Double the hats. Double the cuteness. When I need to lift, hold, or manuever a newborn, my heart melts as I eagerly oblige. So fun.
Speaking of Stephanie, since she [finally] joined my gym, we have been getting in some killer gym sessions. Here is what my week of workouts looked like:
- Monday: 1-mile run + Blonde Ponytail’s No Equipment Workout
- Tuesday: 4-mile run
- Wednesday: 1-mile run (#RWRunStreak finished!)
- Thursday: 30-minute HIIT on treadmill + Meg’s shoulder workout
- Friday: 1-mile warm up run + leg workout similar to this one
- Saturday: 1-mile warm up run + chest & back workout adapted from LiveFit
My running streak lives on! And my entire body is pretty sore from working it throughout the week, so tomorrow’s workout may be cardio based with light intensity.

What has your week of workouts looked like this past week? Weekend plans? We’ll probably hit the pool this morning since that’s pretty much the only bearable activity in this crazy heat and humidity. “Friday, St. Louis tied July 1936 for the second longest streak of 100-plus degree days on record, with its 9th straight day.” (source)
