Seriously – my 13 month old nephew thinks the word “beef” is the funniest thing he’s ever heard. It’s hysterical!

My Mom, Aunt, Grandma and I babysat our little man today and, in between making him laugh, we ventured out into the beautiful weather for a walk!

The scenery on my parents street has now gone from this, to this,

to THIS!

And the leaf piles have gone from this, to this,

After we had lunch of soup and sandwiches, I went on my errands (which included trying on leggings for the first time ever and vowing never to do it again. They make me feel so…exposed!) and hopped over to the gym!

It was super quiet since I went in the middle of the afternoon – just the way I like it. I hopped on the treadmill and did my trusty 30 Minute 3-2-1 Workout:

So it’s 3 minutes at a manageable speed (6 out of 10), 2 minutes at a more difficult speed (8 out of 10) and 1 minute at your max speed (9 or 10 out of 10). Adjust the speeds to fit your level of fitness!

Afterwards I headed to the weight room to use the free weights. 3 sets of 10 reps doing the exercises outlined here. Ummm – my left arm is as weak as a kitten. How did that happen?! Oh I know, I haven’t lifted weights in MONTHS! ;) My arms are shaky right now, and I’m going to hate myself tomorrow, but you have to start somewhere!

I showered up and headed back to my parents house, where we feasted on some Pizza for an easy, family-style dinner.
