Happy 4th of July

Hi friends,
I would like to wish each and everyone of you and your families a wonderful Independence Day celebration. We won't be doing much around here. Herogian is at boy scout camp, and the other two only want to be with a friend and his family shooting off fireworks. I'm hoping I can get some work out of Hubby and get this yard cleaned up. We had three trees cut down and we are still trying to cut up all the branches for firewood and then clear out the small stuff by binding it up to haul away. The pin oaks weren't small.

School is finally going well. We are in week 5 of 8. I'm almost done with one final project of two. The research method one shouldn't be too hard, just needs a lot of research time. The one that's almost done is a strength program of 6 weeks of lifting. Right up my alley.

Work outs have really improved this summer. Having to take Hawk to football practice at 6 a.m. and not getting home until 8:30-9, has given me time to run/walk, and then study in the car. When Gluten is home from camps, we turn around at 9 and head back out for two hours of soccer practice. More study time. :-)

Another change this summer is smoothies. We are doing protein powder mixed in fresh strawberry + any other berry, or fruit we have around. I've notice a big change in energy levels. Actually feeling full throughout the day and not wanting to snack. This has been a good change for the boys also. We are trying to develop some muscle on those twiggy arms of theirs.

This is the challenge I put out for July. If you like you can follow more of our workouts on  or . You can find and share the below on also.
