Sister Saturday and Super Sunday

Sister Day Saturday
Well, I must say that my day with my sister was one of the best ever. We had an absolutely fantastic time together. It was much needed and long overdue. We got in some patio lounge time, Target and Whole Foods shopping, then it was on to the pizza. My half was the typical Greek style. Sarah's half was sauteed portobellos, onions, and red and green bell peppers. Both were mighty tasty I must say. We spent the evening just listing to music, chatting, laughing, laughing, and laughing some more.

Running and Lifting
This morning we got up and went for a run. Sarah is just getting into running, and this was the first time we ever really ran together. We did 2 miles then did 6 rounds of hill repeats. She still said she loved me after it was all said and done too.

Unfortunately she did have to get back home. She cleaned up after the run while I made myself some oatmeal. After she left I finally got to my weights (very reluctantly I might add). Today was 3 sets of 18 reps done as supersets:

SS#1
Chest - Incline dumbbell press
Back - Pullovers

SS#2
Quads - Squats
Calves - Calf raises

SS#3
Biceps - Dumbbell curls
Triceps - Double arm kickbacks

SS#4
Legs - Static lunges
Shoulders - Lateral raises

I also added 2 sets of 12 deadlifts

Jason got home just as I was finishing up my workout and stretching. I decided to sit outside and read for a bit while he mowed the yard. It was a gorgeous day, but hot hot hot (and humid). Let's just say he went out to try to find a new pump for the pool today so we could get the pool in working order.  

Simple Grilling
We decided to grill out for dinner. Honestly, we should have gone to the grocery store but did not. Luckily, I had some veggie burgers that I had made and frozen, a sweet potato, and some kale. I grilled the sweet potatoes and sauteed the kale to go on top of the veggie burgers (since I was out of spinach).  So, not a fancy dinner by any means, but it was tasty nonetheless. 

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!
