Meet the Family


Before I introduce you to my entire extended family, I’ll give you an update on the post-turkey day exercise.  I had a workout date with my brother – after a brief discussion, we decided to hit the weights for a full upper-body workout.  We did 3 sets of 12 repetitions, being sure to hit chest, biceps, triceps, shoulders and back.  While we waited for each other to finish our reps, we did a variety of core moves.  It took about an hour and I had a lot of fun having a partner!

Strong sibs. I like to think I can still beat him in a fight.....

Later in the day I stuck to my leftovers plan of veggies and protein for my lunch.  I piled on the broccoli salad and turkey.

Protein and veggies.

That was plenty to fuel a five mile hike that I was hoping to get more people involved in.  Puzzles, shopping, movies and work distracted some but my two uncles joined me for a trek through the Kennesaw trails.

The treacherous creek we had to cross....

What leftovers did you choose today?!

Meet my Family

Cousin Tripp (Nashville) and brother Nathan (Greencastle, IN) zonked out – not sure if it’s from the tough workout earlier in the day or all the food at Thanksgiving.
