Saturday in Pictures & Workout Recap


Yesterday, my Sunday school class and their families went to the place my husband works to do a mission project. They have some older buildings that needed repainting and we agreed to do it for them. The day started off gloomy and windy but turned to be beautiful and a great day for painting. (Although, I must say my shoulders disagree that it as a perfect day, very, very sore!)

Here are a few pictures my lovely friend Gina took of the occasion.


walking to our project, ready for painting!




So, you may be wondering where I am in these shots. The above picture is the only one I made it into. You can see a bit of my gold shirt and blue shorts. Can you find me?


Bobby with a paint sprayer. Oh boy.


I am going to start doing a run down of all of my workouts from the past week on Sunday’s instead of trying to remember to post what I did every day. I still may mention workouts, but will compile a list on Sunday was well.

Sunday: rest

Monday: ran 5 miles, upper body weights, 25 minutes elliptical

Tuesday: leg, ab, and upper body weights, 20 minutes elliptical

Wednesday: 1 hour yoga class, 10 minutes upper body weights

Thursday: ran 2.5 miles, upper body, ab, and leg weights

Friday: rest

Saturday: painted the outside of buildings (4 hours) moving long run to Monday (will be 6 miles)

    lol to the only pic you made it in, really have to search out the gold shirt end and shorts….
    me…and painting do not go along together.
    I am horrid at painting, leave it to the professionals 🙂

  2. What a great way to spend a Saturday, Heather! The one thing I noticed about your pictures is that everyone is wearing SHORTS and TShirts! In January! Sigh. I’m a little jealous 🙂

    • oh yes, it was 76 degrees! Unfortunately, I will be very jealous of you come summer when you are having beautiful weather and it’s 100 degrees and 98% humidity!

  3. I hate painting, but will be doing it soon!

    Aww, that is so cute that the little kids got to help out with the painting project! I actually don’t know if I’ve ever really painted anything haha, but if I do, I think it would be great to complete it as part of a mission project!

  5. Amanda @ Let Me Be Whats Underneath says

    Love that you spent your Saturday doing a volunteer project. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! 🙂

  6. I love that you and Bobby do projects together 🙂 I actually don’t mind painting – as long as it’s not too much at once. After priming and painting our ENTIRE house in a few evenings – I was set for awhile!

  7. What a fun project! I love service.
