Planking Blows

In my opinion, this was a successful week. I went to the gym four days this week and feeling really great. I've increased weight on every exercise and Matt and I started the plank challenge. I have the worst core and upper body strength, so I was looking forward to this challenged, until I actually tried it---haha! It is TOUGH! I hate it more than that damn elliptical machine, if you follow me on Snapchat (JenHaught79), you know that is HUGE. It started with twenty seconds and this weeks challenge ended with a forty five second plank. The time just continues to increase for a month. My form definitely needs work, but I'm doing it! 

This week's make up was pretty impressive, except for Kourt K. It was very grainy flaky and drying. All the others were fantastic! Plus, I tried Front Row Cosmetics loose tinted powder and loved it. I use it everyday to finish my look.

Yesterday, we brought the dogs to Lake Benson because it was absolutely beautiful, it was perfect weather! There were tons of people out enjoying the weather.  

The gym has been such a huge help with my confidence. I usually spend a hour with the weight machines and about thirty to forty minutes on cardio.  On the weekends, I try extend the cardio to sixty minutes. I tried a few different cardio machines and rowing is by far my favorite. Don't be afraid to try new machines at the gym, I was intimidated by the rowing machine and it turned out to me the best for me. I'm going to attempt a class this week which I've been avoiding. I get pretty anxious about new workouts and not knowing anyone. I know if I want to lose weight, I have to add some variety to my workouts. I don't think I've lost any weight, but I feel a lot stronger! I'll probably comparison pictures next month. 

Matt spend pretty much the whole weekend working outside and finishing up the laundry room shelve. The shelve is a brilliant idea because of all the crap that fall all around our washer and dryer.

The dogs have been enjoying the nice weather, especially Jager.
