What a weekend!!













Well it has been a weekend full of adventure....sort of. Friday I went to a 5:30 body combat class, worked with the kids all day, did a P90x workout after school (and I took it to a new level) then went to best bud's house to play with the twins a bit and hang out. When I finally made it home about 11:30 hubby and I watched part of a movie. Around 12:30 when we went to bed we discovered an infestation. Our dogs had fleas. We have NEVER had this problem before. So I got to go to nasty Wal-Mart and buy lots of flea-be-gone crap. Came home and gave the two monsters baths and collected all bedding and blankets in the house. Went to bed after 2. That means I was up for almost 24 hours straight.
Was up by 7 on Saturday to start washing and cleaning and I had a double workout to do. Went to a friend's house for dinner and went to Home Depot to pick out new carpet (yahoo!!! 6 years I have been waiting for this moment).
But Sundays I have decided to be hiking days. I was bit disappointed last week with the flat, paved walk. I wanted adventure. I ordered a book called 60 hikes in 60 miles. I think they have them for every major city. There is a nature center at Lake Worth which is about a 40 minute drive but it is exactly what I was looking for. The trails are crazy! All of these pictures were taken from the trails. I walked for over two hours (and I am assuming a little over 7 miles) and still did not walk all the trails. They are also very empty. I only ever saw 2 people and they were not on the trails. At one point I realized I had dropped the map and had to back track to find it or I may have never made it back to the car.
The trails were narrow, muddy, steep - and fun! I felt just like a kid going exploring like when my folks used to have woodlands behind their house.
I will do this again for sure! Now I am procrastinating going to the store. I have school Monday and Tuesday but many districts around here don't. **JEALOUS**
P90X update - I have found a way (with the help of some ladies at the gym) to do actual modified pull-ups instead of using the band. Holy crap are they hard but I shall do them. I'm gonna bring it! (This is a gay saying from the videos). I am not even through the full 2nd week yet and I can see a difference in my arms. More definition. Wow this stuff works hard and fast. Tomorrow is legs and back (I like this one the least).

This post is forever long so I will post a hello dolly bar recipe tomorrow (yummy sweet treat). Hope you had a great weekend!

Did you really qualify a saying as "gay" ??? I love reading your blog, but I hope you don't use this kind of adjective with your students...

Love the pictures! We have school Monday and Tuesday as well. The school where my parents live, in Nebraska doesn't have Wednesday off, so I guess I should feel fortunate!

Thanks for sharing pictures of that trail at Lake Worth! I always assume there's no where pretty to walk in this area. These trails are probably a little above my fitness level right now but I'm looking forward to the day they aren't!
