Regardless.....props to him for helping his lovely lady..and to you for not wanting to kill him! S&M.gif
LOL I wish all I gave was the "stink eye" when I'm angry... I think the look I give him is better described as "b*tch face"!!! If I'm really mad about an exercise he's making me do then I get him to stand in front of me so I can glare at him to help give me the strength to push through it.. usually helps when he glares back lol but he does it in a more funny-kidding way, when I think I probably look like I want to kill him!! I bet ppl at the gym watch us sometimes... popcorn.gifpopcorn.gifpopcorn.gif
He's not a trainer - just loves the gym. Well not loves... maybe loves/hates it, but he knows that in the 3 years that he's been working out regularly he feels great & looks great so he knows all the benfits!!! He's great at giving you a program to follow, but changing it up enough so you don't get bored & stop pushing. Like the crazy little obstacle-course from hell he made me do this afternoon... I think I told him to F-off like 4 times, but I worked SO HARD to get through it & I appreciate it so much!
I really need to do something to show how much I appreciate it!! Although I'm sure when I look smokin' in my new bikini I bought (inspiration) it'll be thank-you enough!! wink.gif

I went to the gym Mon & Tues (approx 1.5 hours per day), Wed was our day off & I should have gone today, but since I was up all night & barely slept I took the day off! Plus I drove 3.5 hours to my parents housethis afternoon. I'm probably going to skip the gym tomorrow because I didn't bring mystuff, but I'll walk the dogs. Then I'm going whitewater rafting in the Ottawa Valley on Saturday so that'll be a great workout! (& incredibly fun!)

Oh xandrafaye you are going to have a blast whitewater rafting on Sat and its an amazing workout! You'll be exhausted Saturday night! I live in Ottawa and we went rafting 2 years ago at Wilderness Tours (one of the companies offering it) and I was so sore in my upper body and abs the next day because the harder you paddle, the more fun it is. But beware, the river is still cold at this time of year, so if you have a wetsuit top, wear it!

Monday - Yoga 1 hour
Wednesday - 1 hour full body weights
Thursday - 30 minutes elliptical, 25 minutes treadmill walk/run, plus 15 minutes of core/ab work
Today - day off
Tomorrow - 1 hour of weights plus some cardio

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
