Thursday - Our little Owen is one month old!! That went a lot faster than the last month of pregnancy. Tried to workout on treadmill but only got in .4 miles before Owen needed me. So I went and got batteries for his swing. But they were dead, so I gave up and did a 300 rep workout so I could manually give him a push in the swing every 30 seconds. 10 exercises, 30 reps each with 30 high knees after each exercise - I need to go look up my notes tho cause I can't remember all of them...

  1. Jumping Jacks

  4. Half Burpees 
  5. Speed Skater Touch

I did 12 minutes of planks this afternoon around 2 and then did 2 miles on the treadmill in 25:15, I finished the first mile in 12 minutes, so gotta work on my endurance to keep that second mile just as strong... still, got a little better on my time, little by little!

In an attempt to get ready for the school year hours, I woke up early (6:45) and went downstairs and walked and jogged 2 miles on the treadmill. Took me 27 minutes. I was able to do 1.25 miles (compared to last week) in 16 minutes. Will try to keep improving that time. I also went 7.1 miles as my fastest speed today, will try to improve that each time too. Have a goal to run three times this week, going to workout Body for LIFE style.

Monday - 10:45 am -12 minutes of planks - did center, left, center, right, center at the beginning to really try to get the center core plank strong, then rotations of the rest to finish up the 12 minutes. We decided on a name today. Owen Levi Wride, he's doing great, (isn't he cute?!?!?) 
Then to make up for missing two days last week, at 6:15 when the 2 kids at home with me were both sleeping - 400 walking lunges around the house as I picked up stuff off the floor, aka "cleaning lunges"
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks

Saturday - 2 miles on treadmill. Did .75 miles on the incline, then stopped to nurse the baby, Took it off the incline, and finished 1.25 while Corey held Owen. Was able to do 1.25 in 17:30 minutes, so going to try and improve on that number next time.
