6:00 AM: Chalene Extreme Burn it Off – COMPLETED
7:00 AM: 6×400 3-Mile Run – COMPLETED
I just finished up the second week of Chalene’s Extreme program and I am loving every second of it. I needed heavier weights, so I made a small purchase yesterday. The weights I really want are the weights that are in the video, but my girlfriend, Kari, told me that they are $350. I’m not sure I can justify spending that much money on them, yet. I could get Allie’s weights, too, which are half that price. I will shop around. My girlfriend pointed out to me that I work out a lot at home, so in the end, whether I spend $150 or $350 it will be well worth the money spent.
While I was out, I treated myself to Starbucks.
I very, rarely, spend money on coffee. I just make coffee at home and/or have a cup at work. $3 plus change?!? It’s about $15 savings if I were to buy it for the work-week.
Today, I was able to squeeze my speed-work session in after I made Lili’s breakfast. She had an omelette with fruits. I sat her in her high chair next to my treadmill so she could watch me. Occasionally, I had to jump off on my cool-down to help feed her. Sometimes she doesn’t mind that I work out, and others, she is too needy and doesn’t want me working out! I’m picturing how this would go when I have two little munchkins. How will I train? Workout? Weight train? Keep my sanity? I guess we just learn to adapt to a new life. I am banking on a new career path and hopefully that will happen very, very soon. More on that another day.
In other news, I’ve scheduled an appointment to look at my dream house. I know I’ve emailed it to some of you and even though we’re not 100% we could buy, it’s just SUCH a perfect house for us. It’s in the area I want to raise my kids, it has four bedrooms, a beautiful HUGE RENOVATED kitchen with TWO ovens (because we all know I love to cook), and it’s in our price range. More importantly, it’s the first house that I emailed Pedro and that he responded back to me that he loves. So, I’m just going to look. I’m always looking but this is the first time that I actually found something I absolutely love. Close to both of our parents and the property taxes are $5,000+ less than what we pay now! Come on… what’s not to love? I need to buy this house. My mom and mother-in-law keep pushing me to look at it, so I finally decided to talk to the realtor. The good news I already have representation and I could prepare my own closing documents. At least that’s one less thing to worry about.
So, wish us luck!!! I have so many great things happening in my life right now, so if it doesn’t go our way, it’s okay. But, to add a new home, now that would be great.
Are you living in your dream house right now? I knew this for sure. The next house we move into is the last and final house we’re living in!!! I hate moving.
