Kenpro X & other random stuff

First of all, I did get in my scheduled 20 minute run. Yay me. Afterwards, we closed on our old house. Woohoo! Can I just say we have the most awesome realtor??? Seriously, most of the homes in the same area have been on the market for 6 months - 1 year. Ours was sold in less than 2 months. If anyone out there needs a realtor, let me know and I'll give you her contact info.

Workout #1 - 20 minute run, 5/1 intervals, treadmill

Afterwards, we bought a few select pieces of furniture that we absolutely knew we wanted for our gameroom. Huge thanks to Noreen at Star Furniture for all her help!

Piece of advice:

Don't take 2 children furniture shopping...especially late in the day when they're getting tired. The baby had a diaper blowout like I've never seen before! I'm standing there talking to the salesperson when all of a sudden I feel a droplet on my foot. I practically sprinted to the ladies room with the baby in my arms and the diaper bag on my back. I won't go into details but it was nasty! LOL! To make matters worse, the kiddo got her second wind and was hopping around all over the place and wanted to jump onto all the couches. When I told her not to do that, she decided she wanted to go home and tried to pull me in the direction of the door. It was surely one of those "CALGON TAKE ME AWAY" moments!

Once the kiddo and munchkin were in bed, the hubby and I did our "Kenpro X" workout. This was probably the easiest and most fun workout so far. It was a lot like Tae Bo...very fast paced, lots of kicks, jabs and punches. Some of the combinations were difficult, but overall it was not bad!

Workout #2 - P90X - Kenpro X - 1 hour (we started at 9:30 pm!)

Saturday is back to school and a P90X rest day..thank God! By the way, the school projects are going well! If things continue to go this well, I should end my final semester with 2 A's. Wooohoooo!

Congratulations on a smooth closing. Everything is just tying together for you guys which is wonderful! OMG I am rolling at the diaper blowout. I am sure it was not fun for you though and the kiddo bouncing the furniture. Been there done that, not fun. Way to go with the school projects and the workouts. I bet you love those P90X rest days. make sure you take before pics.

Are you back at work full time yet? This next week is the last week for If you Give A Moose a Muffin at Main Street Theater thought maybe you would wanna take the kiddo. I don't think they allow munchkins but if you think you can let me know it would be fun.

I need you to send me a weekly email to remind me that your blog does not have an RSS feeder capability since it's private.

I just realized I haven't been in here for a month! Hmmm...we have a playset in the back yard. They are totally worth the price if you ask me. Our 10-year old still swings every single day and she loves the little fort area.

We need updated photos of the house with the new furniture! We made the mistake of taking kids to Star Furniture. I've done that twice. Very.Bad.Idea.

I'm seriously considering this 100 pushup challenge that the rest of the gang is doing. I'm running with the Fit club, doing weights 2x a week and that's keeping me tired and sore.

Had to laugh about the diaper blowout - at least you noticed it fast!

Congrats on the house closing!!

We're one year into a 5 and 1/2 year owner-financed (us) house sale. It's nice getting that big monthly check but I'm sure once it's paid off, we'll all breathe a BIG sigh of relief!
