Well hello my dear friends!
With the crispness in the air (this morning's 46 degrees=my kind of crispness) over the past few days, I couldn't help but spend a little more time outside. Thursday and Friday demanded some outside time, though earlier in the week wasn't so delightful. Can it be an official rule that the temperature can no longer creep into the 90's once it is October? No one wants to be sweatin' in their Halloween costume, after all.
Only in Texas do you have weather in the 90's, torrential thunderstorms, and temps in the 70s-40s all within about 72 hours.
To my fellow North-Central Texans, might I remind you it was this time last year that we had those record-setting floods that put Corsicana on the national weather map. It was that exact weekend last year I tried to fly home to TN for a homemade fall break, only getting to spend about 24 hours watching my flights be delayed and cancelled and delayed and cancelled at DFW. Not the most magical two days of my life...plus I didn't even get to go home. Ah, good times...
This past week I did a little of this and a little of that workout wise...almost all of the workouts were completed in under 25 minutes, because that's about all the time I've been having to workout these days. Once I get this Master's all fineto in ONE MORE WEEK, I will be able to have a little more time to add some more walking to my routine, which is my favorite way to exercise/meditate/relieve stress.
Check out these workouts and add one or two to your weekend activity or into next week's exercise. And remember, these are workouts a pregnant lady is going. However, in case you don't know, I'm not your average exercising pregnant lady...just keep that in mind, y'all! Keep spreading your awesomeness today and this weekend.
