It was an eventful week! We're closing out summer with a bang. Elliott is crawling everywhere, my small group is beginning our meetings again, and today I hosted a yard sale for a friend. Sold a few of my own goodies too! I also busted my booty in bootcamp!
This week was about drop-sets (doing 6-8 reps of a high weight, then dropping the weight 30-40% and doing more reps until fatigue), plus cardio intervals. I'm not sure if it was all the interval work or what, but I managed to lose 2lbs this week! That's the most since beginning the weight loss journey 5 months ago. Hooray!
I'm still struggling a bit with endurance during my runs, but with the interval training it doesn't matter quite as much. I'm stopping and starting a lot to follow the plan and it's definitely a good feeling to get my heart rate up high and be able to take a breather. Wishing bootcamp could last forever...
On the blog:
I raved about one of my favorite books of the year, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.
I took a little trip back to the Gold Rush with The Quilt Walk by Sandra Dallas.
I reviewed The Roots of the Olive Tree by Courtney Miller Santo.
I talked about the "Croc Capers" series by Bindi Irwin. I'm also giving away the entire set!
For Picture Book Saturday I featured a couple of my favorites that have recently been reissued.
And because I just love showing off my little guy:
