Last night, we had a family gym night. Well, except for Jaden. He went to the kid’s room.
Jacob has really gotten into running lately, so I have been trying to encourage his interest. He signed up for a fitness club at school and wants to go to the gym to run on the treadmill.
I kind of hung out with Jacob on the treadmill. I didn’t get in a great workout because we had just finished eating dinner and my quad was bothering me.
I ran a mile with Jacob on the treadmill. I did a few random ab exercises and stretches, and then I raced Danny 1.5 miles on the stationary bikes. The bikes are neat because you can race the person next to you. All I really accomplished at the gym was making my quad feel worse.
When we got home, I ate about half the box of the peanut butter Puffins – my new favorite cereal! So good!
This morning I practiced BodyPump for about 40 minutes at home. I have all the moves memorized, but now I realize that I have to practice with heavier weights, so I can lift and talk at the same time.
I love BodyPump, but I will be so incredibly happy and relieved once this video has been submitted. I feel like BodyPump has taken over my life!
Halloween Scavenger Hunt
I forgot to tell you how my Halloween Scavenger Hunt went on Friday night! It was really fun and hopefully everyone had a good time.
I split everyone into three teams and each team was given a list of items to find or collect and things that they had to take a picture of and send to me.
Each item/picture was worth a certain amount of points and at the end all the points were added up and the team with the most points won!
Some of the items on the list included:
Bringing back my favorite candy – (Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – only one team got this right)
Wrapping a stranger up like a mummy
A picture of a black cat crossing your path
A picture of a house with tombstones in the front yard
Bringing back the thing that jack o lanterns were first carved out of (turnips)
A picture of a team member in a Halloween costume
Going to the pet cemetery and getting the black rose
A picture of a team member chasing someone around the store with a pretend chainsaw
A picture of a Christmas display
There was a lot of items on the list and I think the game went really good and everyone had fun!
When everyone was gone collecting their items, Jaden and my niece had fun finding Halloween eggs in the backyard.
I thought it was kind of weird to have Halloween eggs with candy in them (isn’t that pretty much Easter?!) but Jaden saw them at the store and I figured they keep the kids busy for a while.
When everyone came back, I added up the points and the winning team got a small prize!
This weekend will be busy with Halloween fun too – on Friday we’re going to the pumpkin farm and haunted hay ride and Saturday is the Halloween party! I really need to finish my costume!
