House Update and More

Hey everyone.

First I want to give you an update on the house. A few days ago a bid was put in on a small house (1300 sq ft) that has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a walk out basement. While small (the kitchen doesnt even have a dishwasher), it sits on a half acre and has a walk out basement. Plus it has a 1300 sq ft attic that is accessible from off of the master.

Plus it has a two and a half detached car garage and two play structures and a playhouse for the kids.

The more I thought about it, the more I liked it. The small master/kitchen/dining area is easily fixable with an 8' bumpout off the back of the house. Not something we would do anytime soon, but for the right price, easily fixable. And who cares if bedrooms are small? We dont live in the bedrooms.

ANYWAYS...I found out yesterday that an agreement has been had on price. Hopefully everything has been sewed up last night and I will just need to find out the move in date.

I am very excited. This is going to be like country living but in the city. I LOVE country!

Once I find out it is a done deal, I will share some "before" pictures with you. You all know that I will end up tricking the house out and making it my own.

Back to my workouts.

Wednesday night was with Eric. We worked and killed my legs. Deadlifts up to I think 165 lbs.  Jump squats, standing leg presses.

Then we hit the seated leg presses. Went all the way up to 600 lbs. This time I didnt need help. And I think I did 10 of them. Then we did strip sets. Start with the 600, go to fail (9 or 10 cant remember), strip a weight off from each side, go til fail...etc. Ouch, ouch, ouch!

Surprisingly, my legs werent that sore yesterday. Then it was shoulder time before RPM. I killed my shoulders and it felt great. Then RPM. Oh baby. I got done and Eric asked how my legs felt which I replied SORE! Good! he says. Right answer he says. LOL.

Today my legs arent bad. I must be getting stronger.

But because I have been stress eating, I am not very excited about taking my pictures for the month. But I will. Not sure if I will post them or not, but I will still take them.

Tonight is working out with Eric at 5:30. Then after that, I am going to my girlfriends house to show her some upper body exercises. She is the one that was in the hospital in critical care because of pneumonia and a super bug. Dr. has given her the all clear to do some upper body workouts. She has lost a lot of her strength and is trying to rebuild it.

Then after that, K, Penni, me and miss upper body are going out to Aubree's. We havent seen each other much and want to have a girls night. And some feta bread. Yum.

Thats the news for now. Sorry my posts have been so boring lately. Just lots going on. But I am still plugging away with exercise and trying to eat healthy.

Have a great Friday everyone and a good weekend!
