size DOES matter

I learned something about myself over the weekend… Apparently, I am THAT kind of parent…

 

It all started last May, when we got a Saint Bernard puppy. At 7 1/2 weeks old, he was already 20 pounds. Of course, with my geeky personality, he was immediately named Chewbacca. Chewie for short. 😉

*insert cooing noises here*

 

My son and Chewie became bestest buddies!

From a wittle puppy (hey, I was raised with horses. A Saint Bernard IS little) to a big fluff-ball, my son and Chewie are inseparable. Partly because Chewie won’t leave him alone, but that’s beside the point… 😉

give...

and take!

 

Now, from these pictures, you’d think I coulda predicted what would happen next… but, alas, I am a true blonde…

The other night while we were in the car, I heard a muffled scream coming from the back seat. Here’s where my parental priorities may be a bit skewed… While dying with laughter, I had to get photographic proof…

 

Yes, I have become THAT parent. At least I can admit it, and that’s the first step to recovery, riiiiight?  😉

 

And now, back to reality…

I did the Max Interval Training DVD from the Insanity workout program last night. It’s all plyometric, and it’s not really “interval.” Someone at BeachBody needs to get their workout dictionary out… It’s more of plyometic circuit training. A series of exercises (about 4 of ’em) done in 45 second chunks, with a 30 second break after the set. Repeat.  A lot. (See? NOT interval. That’s circuit training, people.) But oh well, it was a hard workout, and I’m glad I did it!

Today, I’ll be running. Maybe. I’ve been avoiding running lately, so we’ll see if I actually follow through today. I do want to get down to the cliffs to see what the surf is doing today, so that’s a bit of a motivator. It’s a gloomy day today, and we all know Heather’s a “weather weenie”… I’ll keep you updated on what happens. Who knows, this may end up being a 2-post kind of day! 😉

 

What are your workout plans for the day? Or is today your rest day?
