I’m the worst dog mom

Training this week is going well so far, but it’s only Tuesday so let’s not jinx it! Yesterday I did a full body strength workout that went like this:

(Supersets in pairs)

  • Dumbbell Arnold Press 3×10
  • Plate Front Raises 3×10
  • Dumbbell Chest Press 3×10
  • Push-ups (on toes) 3×10
  • Wide-grip Lat Pulldown 3×10
  • Single-Arm Dumbbell Rows 3×10 ea.
  • Dumbbell Walking Lunges 3×20
  • Leg Press 3×15
  • Dumbbell Curls 3×10
  • Bench Dips 3×15

I definitely achieved the soreness I was looking for by using supersets! I wrapped up the workout by doing all of my physiotherapy exercises for the SECOND time that day. (Killing it, orrrrr….?)

Today I did a 7k run at 5:23/km pace which was decent enough for me after my recent struggles! Tomorrow I hope to squeeze in a 5k at some point in between my 11 hour work day, and our monthly TRIVIA NIGHT at my friend’s house! I wish I could tell you I am always on the winning team, but I ALWAYS end up playing against Josh, and if you have ever spoken to Josh about stupid shiz that nobody should ever know, or watched him watch Jeopardy…you know my team is not taking home any sort of cake. I wish. But like the actual cake more so than the win.

Speaking of cake, back in November when we adopted Winslow, he weighed 20-21lbs. I weighed him yesterday (he sat on the scale like a perfect dog) and he is up to 23.2lbs!  Oooooops! Too many treats from the Farmer’s Market or what? Guess I better get him running with me stat! Too bad this is about health and not cuteness, because he is definitely cuter with that big booty. We call him a big booty hoe way too often. I hope this isn’t a reflection of how we will raise our future human children. Thirty years from now…no one get excited.

Anyway, it is a good thing I am ordering Winslow’s life jacket soon, so I won’t have to worry about him sinking up at the cottage. HAH, mostly kidding. Poor guy.


So Lemon’s is a bit snug but he thought it was pretty fun anyway.

Moving on, my current obsession is David’s Tea in Sangria flavour. Can you just pause for a moment and look at this tea?

IMG_0486I wish you could smell it.

I took a big hiatus from tea drinking recently, but now that it’s super hot I have started to cycle through my old favourites again in ICED tea form. I think I drank 4 of them today. Such an easy way to convince myself to drink water!

Speaking of obsessions, I think I am going to start a monthly blog post of my favourite products for the month. It’s no secret that I am obsessed with YouTube beauty vloggers, and favourites videos are the best ones! I plan to include favourites of all sorts– from running gear, to make-up, to food, to blogs/websites, and Harry Potter jokes (obvs). I am pretty excited about it!  I hope to get my May Favourites post up next week!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
