My workout post for the week was delayed because we were visiting my parent’s from Thursday to Sunday. I took a bit of a break from business/blogging, etc. We initially went to their house to help them move some stuff to their new house but they didn’t feel like doing it and wanted a break from weeks of packing, sorting and that comes with moving. Mom finished radiation a few weeks ago so all they wanted to do was take it easy.
So you know me, I like to find new farmer’s markets so we went to one in Spencer, IN. It was small but had a nice variety. We bought soaps, a housewarming gift for their new house and some other goodies. I have started container vegetable gardening (tomatoes and bell peppers) and saw a great idea to use old tins and cooking pots for that. I’ll blog about my veggie ‘gardening’ soon.
Then we went and stopped by the Bloomington, IN farmer’s market which I have been to before but it was too early for lots of veggies. Dad and mom took us to Cataract Falls which was so pretty! The lower falls were closed due to flooding but what we got to experience was amazing.
Workouts for last week were OK but I took off Friday- Sunday. I was able to get in a quick boxing workout before we left so that made me happy. So here is what I accomplished this week.

How did your workouts go last week? And what are your goals for this week?
My goals: 2 spin classes, 3 weight/strength workouts plus other cardio

Glad to hear you enjoyed a weekend away and of visiting with your parents. Love the pictures you posted especially the one of you with the falls in the background…gorgeous! I love water and streams and falls and beaches…you get the picture 😉
Thanks! I love the outdoors too BUT I don’t like sleeping there ha ha I’m not into camping although living in an RV I might be able to do if we were constantly on the go or maybe a cottage type thing with a bathroom. Living on the beach is the goal though so we’ll keep working towards that.
I’m glad you’ve incorporated the Vibrams in your workouts, it’ll definitely help you a lot in building strong legs, although I would advise you to try walking around outside as well as it gives your feet opportunities to deal with different “terrains”.
Speaking of the Vibrams, I wanted to let you know that I replied to your comment on my post — right now I’m having some issues with the comment system, so I wanted to make sure you’ll be notified of the reply.
Claudie, thanks! I saw your reply and I agree, I need to start wearing them more often to get used to them. We wore them to Pilates class and I like them much better than wearing socks so I’m not sliding all over the place. Not sure if I’ll wear them to box in but you never know.
Thanks for stopping by!
