I am back!

Last week I think I had the worst sore throat I have EVER had in my ENTIRE life! I could seriously not even swallow my own spit. After dealing with it for five days I went to after hours on Saturday afternoon. They did a rapid strep test and it wasn't strep throat but the doctor said my throat was red, swollen, with blisters! He wrote me a prescription for a Medrol Dose pack and an antibiotic. The Medrol Dose pack help immensely and by that night I was able to swallow again. I went through 2 bags of cough drops in those 5 days...bleh!

So..needless to say I didn't do much working out last week. I did about 3 days of walking on the treadmill but my throat felt like I had swallowed a hot piece of charcoal. So this week I am back to my routine. Yesterday I did 40 minutes of cardio (medium intensity intervals) and then I worked my upper body.

I used my bands and wrapped them around the bed post: )

Pull downs 3 sets of 12
Chest Flys 3 sets of 12
Shoulder press Dumbells 3 sets of 10

Today I will do the treadmill again (Hey might as well get my money's worth!) for 20 minutes of high intensity intervals. Then I will do lower body.

Dumbell front squats 3x10
Deadlifts 3x10
Calf Raises 3x10

Hoping Miss Delaney sleeps long enough to get my workout in plus take a shower!

Some pictures of my girls!

My favorite five year old :)

Delaney loves her Baby Mum Mums!

So Happy! She was smiling at her big sister!

Kiley and Delaney being silly!

Getting to be such a big girl, and a great big sister!
