Flora, Workout Change Up and Info Nuggets
Happy Aloha Friday all!
Let me first do the equivalent of putting flowers on my desk at work and post the flowers the Mr got me the other night. Aren't they purty?
Yes, I put them in a big ol' mason jar. I kind of like the way it looks too. :-) Thanks honey!
Last night, I was physically unable to workout. I mean, I couldn't lift my arm to grab the remote control without feeling like I was going to cry from the previous night's Total Trainer session. The Mr and I both struggled through that session and we don't know why. It's not like we just started strength training again or something so I don't know why the Total Trainer in particular would kick our asses into the ground. I considered taking a rest day but decided I could muster a nice walk around the water as long as I didn't have to raise my arms for anything. So off we went...
We enjoyed the wildflowers, the windsurfers out taking advantage of the gusts and the birds chillin' or hunting. It was a nice walk and I'm so glad I remembered the sunscreen was in the car because I'd be a nice shade of red without it. It wasn't a massive calorie burner for me at 580 calories but put me over my calorie burn goal for the week so I won't have to bust my hump on today's workout.
Here's some links to what I've been reading online this week:

(This includes me. When we stay in Poipu on Kauai, after a few days, I break out in a rash especially on my arms but also a little on my legs. As soon as we move over to Wailua, it goes away. It happens no matter where we stay in Poipu. Weird!)
Still waiting to hear back from a friend to see if we're road trippin' this weekend or not so no clue what our plans are for the weekend.
What are you doing this weekend?
