Good evening, friends, and happy end of Monday! I hope you had a relaxing and fun weekend.
This weekend I challenged Rob to throw out or donate 100 items from around our house. This meant that each of us had to find our own 100 things to remove. Granted, it took us almost all of Saturday morning, but we did it! Most of my items came from my closet as I got a little cut-throat and realistic on pieces I actually wear versus those I keep because they have sentimental value (hello college t-shirts that no longer fit). There is something so cathartic about cleaning out a bit of the clutter.
We have also become Saturday night church people. We started going to the 5pm service about a month ago and are really enjoying having our Sundays completely free to go hiking or take a slow morning at home. Plus, we are able to hit the grocery stores before the other churches let out, which makes for a quicker and more peaceful shopping experience. Especially at Costco since everyone loves their bargain prices on bulk foods.
Earlier in the week, as you might have seen on Instagram, I lost my voice. On Wednesday, I could not talk above a whisper and only for a few words. My voice is back to about 95% and my doctor appointment today told me it was bronchitis. Ugh. The doctor gave me a Z-pack to start tonight, so hopefully by the weekend I will be feeling better. I skipped my usual Saturday morning long run this past weekend in favor of sleep and it was so needed!
Our weekend also included some long lunches (Zoey likes to take her time) and a walk through Home Depot. Now that Zoey is getting the hang of walking, it is all she wants to do! On Friday afternoon, when we got home, we were encouraging Zoey to walk between us. On her way towards me, I moved back a bit further and Zoey fell and hit her nose on the floor! She ended up with a little bloody nose and I felt terrible. Thankfully it did not damper her walking determination and she was toddling around Home Depot like a pro by Sunday.
Since the weather is starting to turn chilly, the Fall clothing of boots and leggings is just around the corner. I wanted to share this leg-burning workout that will get your legs feeling strong and defined in time to show off those cute Fall leggings.
As with any workout, please make sure you warm up and cool down. I recommend at least 5-10 minutes of steady state cardio and a bit of stretching before you get into the meat of any workout. If any move in this Boots & Leggings Leg Workout feels too difficult, or too easy, modify it in a way that is best for your body.
How often do you declutter?1
