Big Birthday Boy

 Last night we celebrated my nephew's 2nd birthday with a little family party.  Happy birthday Oliver!

Birthday boy

He got the honors of cutting the cake

Gone fishin'

He insisted on trying all his new clothes on

Happy little boy

Only in WI do you get a cheese head for your 2nd birthday

Proud big sister 

I'm convinced my sister makes the most beautiful babies ever... I hope I can do the same someday!

The menu had a great spread of food to suit all peoples' needs... pulled BBQ pork, strawberries, spinach salad, pasta salad, fresh veggies, mango salsa & regular salsa with chips, snicker salad , lemon cake and green iced. 

1/2 mile warm up
Roller ball 

Lunge 10 yards x 4 - push ups w/piston pull (8, 6, 4, 2)
1 arm, 1 leg bosu ball press - back fly w/tubing x 3
Incline shoulder press - SB plank (30 sec) x 3
Side lunge - med ball throws 
(all were done as super sets, we call the second exercise a "tweener" at work, which is done in between the main exercise aka the first one listed)

Breakfast was bright and early this morning - 5:15 am!  I have been on a Reeses' peanut butter oatmeal kick lately, so that's what I had to start my day out. 

  • 1/2 c oatmeal
  • 3/4 c water
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 8 drops liquid Stevia 
Lunch was homemade lasagna filled with Italian sausage, red & yellow peppers, and spinach.  

What kicks have you been on lately?  What was your workout today?  Has anyone learned any new lifts/moves recently?!


  1. Aw, you do have some adorable nieces/nephews! I did not workout today:/, but yesterday I did a new exercise...I tried the hand bike thing at the gym for the firs time. Since my foot is sprained I can't do a lot of aerobic stuff, so I figured I would try it. It was definitely not as much of a workout as running, but I did work up a bit of a sweat!:)

  2. @Erin @ UntilYouTri I like trying new things every now and again, and that machine can definitely get some sweat on the brow!


It's your turn! Tell me your comments and opinions!
