Push Yourself

Workout for today was a killer routine.
Bicycles
Crunches
Frog thrust
Burpees
Side alternating plank
Mountain climbers
Squat jumps
I did 25 reps of each since I was using my phone to listen to music. It makes it hard to time yourself. I did three rounds and added a few more abs routine. I personally like the one where you lay down on the ground. You hold a weight in your hand and get up then lay back down. I'm not sure what that one is called it sure will push you. I get bored working out on my own with the pictures I get off line. Five rounds seems a bit much to me. Then again I have no idea who is coming up with workouts. I always let my body tell me where I'm at. I always find myself adding knees up plank walk downs, push ups, knee smash. Another favorite of mind is where you are in a push up and jump in and out with your legs. Killer for lower abs. I also work a little on arms with my bands. Traveling light is great. My bands fit right in my bag. I try use my bands as much as I can. It just takes a second to remember all the great workouts you can actually do with them. It took about an hour my boys sat in the workout room with me at the hotel. They watched TV even helped me on a few circuits. Christopher likes to mock me. It's cute when he will flex his muscles. Getting fit will always be hard no matter where you are in life. Don't let no gym or I'm traveling be an excuse. If you want it you will complete your goals. Nothing will stop you from getting it but YOU! Have faith in yourself you are worth your own time.

Zombie Games

I hear screaming coming from Justin's bedroom. Christopher comes hauling out of the room runs right into Justin.
"I saw something!" He says His eyes are big and wide.
"What? Jay ask
"It's under the bed." Christopher yells
They both bend down to take a look under the bed. I'm peeking around the corner I hear Christopher say "It's okay Jay It's a dryer sheet."
They both go back pretending to shoot each other and zombies. Children imagination are wonderful even with the age gap between my boys. It's breathtaking to see how close they are. Their brotherly bond is strong. They fight like hell sometimes but never hold a grudge. They do just about everything together. They are growing up just thinking in two weeks Justin will be twelve years old going into six grade in August. Christopher will start preschool as well. My boys will always be my babies. They are my heart and soul. I'm a very proud momma. Even if my nest is slowly emptying.

Storms

Last night was about the most scariest thing we have been in since last summer when my hubby had to pull off the road in North Dakota with a bunch of people at a gas station to avoid the tornado that hit.

It was crazy receiving texts from him that read.
If you wake up and see the news. I love you. 
The next one reads
I'm  okay I was able to get off the road.
Then he sent a picture 
and the last text reads 
I love you and the boys. This above picture was from a guy he worked with that sent it to him. There is no place to go the houses are all mobile homes. We stayed in an RV for the summer. The land is flat where it looks like the sky could swallow you whole. Traveling is by far the most exciting thing to do. Our drive there to North  Dakota was storms all the way. As we left one state or town a tornado hit. This year driving to New Mexico was the same. We hit a storm in Louisiana. Thank God we were driving  away from it. Last night I made my decision not to make our home in Carlsbad permanent. It will stay a summer home to visit our family. 


The road was flooded on both sides. I was for sure we we're going to get stuck in the water. The hail was so big and thick look like snow on the streets. The city has no draining system at all. I took a video mind you it's a two lane road with no where else to go. www.facebook.com/aquarium maintenance 
The kids thought it was really neat. Us not so much as hubby drove and I took pictures to keep my mind clear. Tree branches were down everywhere. I think I will stick to the Florida weather instead. Bright side we were in the same car with hail dents from last year storm. A few more doesn't matter.
