It's a hard knock life

We only have two and a half weeks of summer left before my girls head back to school. That means we're running out of time to check things off on our summer fun list and on my summer not-so-fun list.

Yesterday I forced my girls into child labor and made them help me clean the baseboards. There was plenty of complaining, but there was also Grace singing "It's a Hard Knock Life" to counter the complaints.

My girls will start school just a few days before I (hopefully) can start doing cycling or pool running again. I have never been so excited to do either of those things. Ironically, I ordered a bike trainer just a few days before my running (and pretty much everything physical) came to a screeching halt. And it has been sitting in the box, unused, since it was delivered last week. I'm looking forward to breaking it out and putting it to use.

In the meantime, I'm still plugging away at the strength training. Yesterday I did 35 minutes of upper body and 25 minutes of core. If you have any great strength workouts you love, be sure to let me know. I am always on the lookout for something new to keep things interesting!

And to keep things interesting around here, here's a little entertainment for you:

Can you guess which one literally made me laugh out loud?
