My intentions were to do 2+ miles, down to the main road and back, but this morning my “Wanna-be dog” G decided to tag along. He then gave up in prime coyote crossing and after refusal from Copper to stay behind and protect him, I gave up and turned around. I would rather loose half a work out than a wanna-be dog like G….

After getting home I did a little weights:

2 sets squats with 10 lb weight

2 sets lunges

2 sets side bendies

Assortment of ab workouts

Yesterday we took the kids to hike up Strawberry Mountain. 1+ miles up.. well… a mountain. I kept calling it Strawberry hill – but it is no hill my friends. So my legs were super sore today, and I twisted my knee so I didn’t want to push it. wa-wa-wa! The boys did great. It was their first up hill hike. Everything else has been through the valleys with mild inclines. Zion broke down at the last part when he saw the steep climb, but dad wouldn’t let him stop. What a dad! I had me a teary moment at the top when Kevin look at a super excited Zion and told him “don’t stop just because it is hard, never give up. Just slow down and take it one step at a time” That is all around great advice. That is why I love that man!! Pics? Ya, I forgot my camera and phone.

Last nights dinner was amazing!!!

BBQed meatballs on a bed of spinach (from the garden) with rice and peppers! It was delicious!!!!

I then ate a skinny cow chocolate ice cream sandwich for desert!
