…because weekends should include handstands. 😉
Hey guys! I’ve been pretty quiet in the blogging world this week and had a fun weekend, I finally have a few things to share with you! For starters, I shared a bit about balancing life and fitness over at Heather‘s page on Friday – thanks for the chance for me to guest post, friend. Check it out and leave a comment if anything resonates with you. Balance is ALWAYS something we seem to be working on…so maybe something will strike you! Before I jump into the weekend fun, here are a few more links to check out:
Enrollment is now open for our summer trips! Are you a young adult cancer survivor (18-39-ish) who wants to get outside this summer? Join us for our kayaking or rafting trip, bring a supporter and come adventure with us! Check out Survive & Thrive Expeditions and sign up today and share it with anyone who might be interested.
5 workout must-haves from Janetha…I just love this girl. 😉 Would you add anything to the list? I’d say a jump rope – after having kind of crappy ones, I finally broke down and spent the $14 for a sturdy speed rope this weekend!
Ever experience food anxiety? You’re not alone in this struggle if you are – check out Jill’s thoughts in her recent post.
And now a few weekend highlights, starting with our friends Craig and Mandi coming over and my friend Rae surprising us and inviting us to box seats at the hockey game!
…thanks Rae and Kevin!
Saturday was a fun, relaxing day that included sleeping in, a home workout (more on that below in the video and link!) and a fun night celebrating Mikey’s “Top 40 Under 40” achievement at a party at his parents’ house. We had a great time catching up with friends, sharing about where God is leading and the opportunities he has given Mikey and just enjoying fellowship and good community. A huge thanks to my in-laws for wanting to recognize Mikey and for their amazing food prep, clean home and welcoming environment! …and to my parents for the beautiful flowers they sent up which are now gracing our table at home:
I even fancied up for the night with a might big dread bun, some teal tights and a mustard yellow sweater dress with slippers – er, boots. Okay, maybe not fancy, but not gym clothes, and that’s a win in my book! 😀
Sunday was great: the early service at church (which was so good!), the Hunger Games movie for a matinee (very unlike us! – loved the movie although I haven’t read the books), cinnamon rolls for lunch and a chance to chat with my parents and friend Anna in the evening. Perfect! Oh – and to show you who’s human and so NOT perfect:
😉 Just keepin’ it real, folks, just keepin’ it real. A reminder for you on those days when you’re busy or tired or feel like there’s no way you’re going to squeeze your movement in:
That’s really all it takes! And on that note, here are a few workouts you might be interested in (all body weight, fast and furious!):
10 min, Mixed-Burpee 100 Rep Workout (love this do-anywhere workout, video included!)
15 min AMRAP Bodyweight Workout (no video but easy to sub moves that aren’t self-explanatory):
Tell me about YOU! Any things you need can share to keep it real with me? Any good weekend workouts or movies on your end? Any fun links to leave for me and the other readers?
Live well & be well, and have a great start to your week,
