Jingle Belles Bash & Productive Sunday

All Dolled Up
Last night we ended up joining our friends at the Jingle Belles Bash. It was a fundraiser event to raise money for the Centers of Youth and Families. We were both really glad we decided to get off our lazy rear ends and go to the event. It was kind of fun getting dressed up and going out rather than sitting on the couch in our PJs, per the normal Saturday night.



Productive Sunday
This morning I was super productive. It was really cold out today, so running wasn't even tempting. I decided to get some house chores done before hitting the weights and cardio. I swept, swiffered, ran some laundry, changed out dishes, cleaned mirrors, and vacuumed area rugs. Then it was time for my workout. I did chest from STS Meso 2. This week the goal is to increase my weights to 75% of my 1 RM. The only exception is that for the first exercise that was done as a "double wave load" I was supposed to stay at 70%.

Flat bench chest press - 12, 10, 8, 12, 10, 8
Flat bench chest flyes - 12, 10, 8
Incline bench press - 12, 10, 8
Incline bench flyes - 12, 10, 8

I followed up the weights with Cathe's MMA Kickboxing then a stretch. I will say that my IT Band was really aching after the kickboxing, so I am going to have to lay off that one this week I believe.

After the workout we had some errands to run. First stop was Target, then The Drug Emporium (I was out of my PB2), then we opted to be bad and eat out for lunch. We hit Razorback Pizza before our final stop, Kroger. After unloading all the bags, I then mopped the kitchen floor.

Right now Jason is hanging the lights on our porch and I have some Red Bean & Quinoa Burgers in the oven. Because it's so chilly out, I think tonight we'll be having Chipotle Tempeh Chili for dinner.
