Lifting Legs and Hunting Eggs

Leg Day
Last night we had a lot of fun with our friends. I never did do the dance off game, but got plenty of laughs just kicking back and watching. I really enjoyed getting to just relax and chit chat with friends. We started off sitting outside on the deck until the mosquitoes forced us indoors.

This morning I woke up a little before 8. I needed to get my side dish made for today's family lunch. I also wanted to hit the gym for legs. I missed legs last week, so I was determined to get them done today. I did the exercises as supersets of 3x8 unless noted starting with 10 minutes on the elliptical.

Squats - 10 reps as warmup

SS#1
Squats
Stiff-legged deadlifts

SS#2
Plie squats
Deadlifts - 3x6

SS#3
Single-leg squats
Alternating side lunges

SS#4
Walking lunges
Calf raises - 3x15

My legs were fried and wobbly almost immediately. Good thing I could take the elevator down and not have to walk stairs.

Easter Egg Hunts
After getting cleaned up in lightning speed time, we hit the road to get to my sister's house. After lunch, the kids HAD to hunt eggs of course. Eventually they wanted to hide the eggs and make my sister and I hunt them. Picture overload to commence:

Did you hunt eggs today? This was the first time I've hunted eggs in more years than I care to count!
