Let's just say that that I may complain that I am sore, but that means it's WORKING!
So we started with Total Body Cardio on Sunday. I was dripping sweat like you wouldn't believe. I burned 280+ Calories in ONLY 30 MINUTES! The rest of the day was spent with me working from 9:30-3:00. After we went to my Aunt & Uncles camp to celebrate Memorial Day with the family.
Monday was Upper Fix, we knocked the workout out nice and early. After some shakeology for breakfast we headed off to see the parade in Middlebury. We then came home and spent the rest of that day relaxing and hanging out at home as a family.
This morning (tuesday) was lower fix day. My legs are so sore that the squats and lunges were a HUGE challenge for me. Now the rest of my day will be hanging out at home with a crazy almost 2 year old and a sick hubby.
Oh and we will be having Taco Salad for Dinner! #tacotuesday

The other night we heard a duck quacking, and since ours currently reside in our basement until they are bigger and can be outside, we knew it wasn't them. So we set off to investigate.
We have a little stream just down the road. This female mallard duck has decided that it make a wonderful home! She is a beautiful and mouthy! Every time anyone goes near the stream she starts in quacking. Which leads me to believe that she may be nesting there and ducklings may show up at some point...

In the past week we have done several outside projects around our house and had some quality family time together.
Last Wednesday Liam and I got to spend time with our good friend Jackie. We went grocery shopping at Aldi, picked up a few items at Tractor Supply and Went to Home Depot to pick up a few Mother's Day gift Items. While at Home Depot Liam was SO exhausted this happened:
Let me tell you get some very strange looks when 2 adults are seemingly pushing around a race car cart with no child in it. Oh well he napped and that is all the mattered to me!
We also bought some Strawberry and Hula-Berry Plants. A Hula-Berry looks like a white strawberry but is supposed to taste like a pineapple. I will keep you updated on this one.
On Sunday we had some items to return to Tractor Supply & Home Depot and also made a trip to the local Wal-Mart. While at the Home Depot I purchased 2 - 4ft pieces of rebar and 10 terra cotta pots. As the rain broke I made my family go outside so that I could build 2 of these fun garden sculptures.
I made 1 for flowers and the other one will be the home for my fresh herbs. I also got a clematis, to use as a privacy screen on our fence. And of course our backyard chickens.
We made the most delicious roasted veggies on Sunday for dinner (I snap chatted the picture but it didn't save) I roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes and Carrots with a little coconut and olive oil poured over them. I added a little onion powder , garlic powder, salt and pepper.
I also discovered one of my new FAVORITE shakeology recipes!
1/2 Cup Coconut Water
1/2 Cup Chocolate Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Almond Butter
10 Ice Cubes
1 Packet/Scoop of Chocolate Shakeology
It kinda sorta tastes like an almond joy bar!
I am also going to share some of the fun photos we have captured this week.

I had to work Saturday when the weather was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! That is okay though because that makes the day go by super fast because the customers were coming out of the woodwork to get
all their outside projects done.
Sunday was another fabulous day (and I had this day off ) so we went on a family hike! We decided to hike a local trail, the trail is only about 2 miles long (but raises in 1200 ft of elevation in that 2 miles). Needless to say my bad knee protested the climb in elevation, so we made it about a 1/3 of the way (According to my Fitbit Charge HR said we climbed 36 flights of stairs). The 41 minute hike burned about 370 calories and got my heart beat up to an average of 120 bpm. Not only did I get a workout but I got to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the company of my kiddo and hubby.
We then came home and did yard work and played in our newly fenced in backyard!
So I covered the part of hiking in the title of the post most are probably wondering about the Chinese Food. So I have been craving Chinese food (no I am not pregnant) but to be honest the fast food take-out kind is not the most healthy thing on this planet. So I have been stalking pinterest looking for healthy Chinese food recipes, and WALLAH I found this amazing little dish... EGG-ROLL IN A BOWL!

As in previous posts (Accountability, Betting on Losing 1, 2, 3, & 4, Weigh In Wednesday... ) many of you know I have been on a weight-loss journey for a very LONGTIME! Basically my WHOLE adult life in fact. The best way I have found so far is to have friends in my corner. They are there to encourage me and dust me off when I fall down! They are also there to kick me in the butt when I need it! I have lost 20+ lbs since January 2016 through Beachbody programs. I started with the 21 Day Fix and I am now doing 22 Minute Hard Corps!
Here is an awesome little fact I found today!
This is exactly 3 years apart!
I have even more GOALS I want to HIT! Don't get me wrong... this journey hasn't been perfect or easy, but I have made it because of my husband's encouragement and the support of my online accountability friends!
When I look at the photos above I see how far I have come , and how much further I want to GO!...
I want you to come and join me on this journey!
I am looking for 6 people that want to reach their GOALS! While pushing me towards mine. We will start next week and push through the rest of spring and into summer TOGETHER!
