Yes, I am still alive! How’s everyone doing?? I’ve had to work quite a bit of overtime lately and my days have been basically this:
7 a.m. - 5:15 p.m. = work
5:45 - 7:30ish = workout
7:30 - 9:30ish = make dinner, eat dinner, misc. stuff around the house, shower and bed
Anyways … this keeps me pretty busy and doesn’t leave tons of time for blogging! Moving on …
Bone to pick with Tazo
Okay, so I have a slight bone to pick with Tazo regarding their tea! If you’ve been reading Lesley Lifting Life for long, you’ll know that I LOVE tea and have at least one cup every day with no fail, and Tazo happens to be one of my all time favorite tea brands. One of my favorite flavors of Tazo is Passion. It’s so good both cold and hot.
Anyways … the last two containers have had at least 4 bags that are faulty. (One of the containers had just about half of the packets like that!) They either have no tea leaves in them, or completely fall apart and break once taken out of the package. Out of curiosity, has anyone else had this happen with any Tazo teas??
While we love our home gym and are so glad we have it, lately we have been working out at a real gym just to switch things up a little and to have more options. Ha, however, we’re getting spoiled and aren’t going to want to work out in our basement now :p
I’ve loved working out in an actual gym thus far. It’s amazing how far I’ve come. When I first started working out, I was incredibly intimidated by gyms! But now I can go in an knock out an awesome workout like it’s nothing ; ) And instead of intimidating me, now all the people around me just make me lift that much harder. I love it! : )
Anyways, today at the gym we did chest. Erik is happy we’ve been going to a real gym because we ran out of plates for him to bench, ha. We only have 300 pounds of weights at home and he’s up to 365 at the moment. And I was very happy to bench 115 today … that’s a personal best thus far! : ) Hooray!
And for convenience sake, the gym we’ve been going to is only about a mile and a half from our house so we can easily come home after working out and have a shake.
So there’s a quick rundown of our lives lately. I’ll leave you with a random picture of Bubba that was on my camera.
