Good Morning!

Today I pulled out Cathe's Afterburn.

Here's how it went...

squat digs
squat press 12 DB

Mountain climbers-
alternating front lunge- Dixie cups

lateral skates
front swing (1) 18# KB

air squats
burpees w/ 2 pushups (legs in and out) - disks -

runners split
rear lunge w/ hammer curl - 12 DB

kick through planks
squat w/ one arm upright row 15 DB - Should go up to 17.5 next time

jumping jacks- disks
one arm clean & press- 15 DB - Should go up to 17.5 next time

spiderman climbers- disks
lateral lunge w/overhead press 12 DB

lunge kicks
walking planks w/ staggered push ups - I did these on my knees.

line taps- dixie cups (used my weight inserts as a marker)
lateral raise w/rear lunge - 6.5

Stretch was very welcome!

Saturday was a busy day. We had our class. Then went to check out this consignment shop that carries horse related items. I was astonished at the prices they had going on there. May as well have been buying these items new at a not so new look. It was disappointing. I would buy a used saddle there because I like them broke in...but I don't need one of those. I bought a saddle a few years ago that I've only used a maybe 25 - 30 times...more in this last year, as a matter a fact...

Then we went to the farm. It was our day for chores and the dry lot was a pig sty. They horses like to stay there near the barn when the weather is bad (can't blame them) so, my husband and I took a wheel barrel and a half (we're talking the huge wheel barrel, not a regular size one) out of the dry lot. And our boys stalls took a wheel barrel themselves....then the other 3 were just part of the dry lot. I guess you could say, our boys like to stay in when the weather is horrible.

Then we stopped at Petco to buy Zoe a birthday present. I have to get a picture. My husband has been wanting to buy her clothes. So, I caved at a sweater. OMG...we put the sweater on the little girl and she is so proud. She is prancing around like a princess (one of her real nicknames) it's so priceless. I guess I need to get Zoe some more clothes.

I'll have to take a picture. Too cute!

Tried clothes on Roxie...she was not impress.

Yesterday, I did paper work and got the budget ready for next month and watched Netflix. It was too cold to do much else.

We're supposed to get freezing rain most of the morning....and we've all (work) decided to go in late. So...I'll be happy so long as I don't have to skate across the parking lot. I hate driving in ice. The thought of staying home has crossed my mind...but my boss wouldn't be happy with that since I only live 5.5 miles away....and drive a 4 wheel drive vehicle....not that it really matters on ice. At least the high today will be 39. Yay!

Off to face the day! Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

    Yeah, the weatehr is crap up here too. From the -40 of last week, tonight is freezing rain , tomorrow they are announcing rain and by thursday the deep freeze is suppose to come back. I guess I'll be late for work tomorrow too. Won't be the first time this winter. I am starting to get anxious for spring now!! emoticon

We are also looking for a new saddle. Preferably a reining saddle. We have a roping saddle now, but we bought a 15 in, when we should have bought a 16 in. seat. I would also prefer a second hand but we've been searching for monthes now. It's not that easy.

    Wow! What a workout! About the used horse items, that is crazy! I know that saddles are high down here, too. I may be able to find you a western saddle, I know someone who may be selling her show saddle, but it is a Dale Chavez saddle and it won't be inexpensive....... Sometimes at our neighborhood shows here, people show up selling consignment clothing and tack. If you let me know what you want, will keep my eyes open. I don't think I can find you anything of the "English" discipline, though.
So scary about the freezing rain! Thank goodness that the boss is allowing everyone to come in late. That makes it a whole lot better! emoticon
