Memorial Day Weekend

We had a great weekend! It was just the right balance between busy and relaxation. I love three day weekends. I wish I could have one every week!

I totally kicked ass with the excersize. Those of you who have been following me for awhile know I am not a gym rat. I walk every day and ride my bike a few times a week. I try to incorporate exercise into my normal routine. I also have a big dog and think that it is important to walk him each day.

Since Saturday I burned 3,379 calories through exercise. Here's what I did:

Lift weights, 10 minutes = 59 calories
Jog, 6 minutes = 73 calories
Shop, 90 minutes = 372 calories
Hike, 90 minutes = 931 calories
Roller skate, 60 minutes = 524 calories
Clean, 85 minutes = 430 calories
Walk, 67 minutes = 508 calories
Cycling, 70 minutes = 508 calories

Congrats on the exercise front...that's awesome.
Your girls are adorable and you're looking great as well.
Good to hear that someone is experiencing some balance.
I too vote for 3-day weekends every week.
