Tuesday as usual

Good morning!

Well, here we are. Tuesday. Big things on tap for today are baby swim for Jordan this morning, karate for Logan this afternoon, and then taking out the garbage and watching The Biggest Loser this evening.

Oh, and possibly drawing two new giveaway winners, since I haven't yet heard from SIHUI or TARA. If I don't hear from either of them by 8 p.m., I'm picking new winners.

I actually got up at about 4:30 and changed and nursed Jordan, and then went out for a 25-minute jog! Usually Hubby works out in the morning, but I for some reason woke up and wanted to go for a run. Hubby said OK, so I did. It was weird being out so early. There was not a soul about in town save for one realllllly fat raccoon waddling down the sidewalk. I went just a touch over 2 miles. Yep, I'm still slow. Oh well. It felt pretty good anyway.

Yesterday, I got up and did Jillian Michaels' Cardio Kickbox DVD and then last night I went to the gym for weights. I decided to go single-side this week, and OUCH! I can really feel it!
I did:
Single-arm flat chest press, 3 sets of 8 per arm with a 35-pound DB
One-arm rows, 3 sets of 8 per arm with a 35-pound DB
Overhead shoulder press, 3 sets of 8 per arm wtih a 25-pound DB
Bulgarian split squats, 3 sets of 8 per leg holding 17.5 pound DBs
then I grabbed a stability ball and did 3 sets of 10 leg curls and 3 sets of 10 knee-ins.

Then... I took a shower at the gym because our bathroom still looks like this:

Yeah, it's going to be a while, I think. Not that I'm complaining. Yes, it's kind of a pain to be without a real bathroom, but it's going to be SO nice once it's complete. It is a HUGE job for one man to do by himself, especially if that one man is my Hubby, who has a very long commute to work and can't exactly work on it at night. He was talking about taking a day off this week and working on it so we can at least have a functioning bathtub, but I don't know if that will happen or not. No matter what, though, eventually we'll have a nice, new non-moldy bathroom! I will be patient!

Today I will shower myself and the boys at the gym after baby swim. It will be difficult to get the baby and myself and Logan clean without putting the baby down but somehow I will manage!

I'm still struggling with what kind of colors I want to do in the new bathroom. I was thinking a purple at first, but now I'm thinking maybe red and white would be cool because we have NO vibrant colors in our house. Plus red would go nicely with the cherry vanity we got. I don't know. I have been looking at shower curtains thinking I'd start there, but I can't seem to find any I like. Brown is SO in right now, and I see lots of brown ones I like, but I'm trying to get away from brown and green since we have so much of those colors throughout the rest of our house.

Well, that's about it for today, I guess. I'm stiff from last night's weights and this morning's jog, so I'll probably be hobbling like an old lady today! Maybe I can work in a nice stretch somewhere.

Hope you all have a great day!

Just a piece of advice- we have a red bathroom and had to do 5 COATS to get it even!
