Weekly Wrap Up + Ugly Ducks

Hey Hey!  I haven't posted in a few days, but rest assured that I've been keeping up with my consistent fitness routine.  I got early to walk every morning this week.  I didn't hit my 13,000 step goal every day, but I got at least 10,000 steps every day.  Now, that's not counting the weekend.  I was out of town over the weekend and didn't do quite as well, but I'm still on track.

I also completed a kettlebell workout two days this week.  The first day, I worked my legs hard.  Lots of squats, lunges and single leg deadlifts.  The second day, I worked my upper body with lots of one arm rows, presses and cleans.  I did some ab work both days.

For some reason, the kettlebell felt extra heavy this week.  I still used the 25 pounder, but it felt extremely difficult to lift this week.  Isn't it interesting how the same move can feel so different depending on your mood/week/hormones/life at that particular time?  I admit I don't understand it all yet.

Ugly Ducks

So, the neighborhood that I live in has a community pond.  It's home to a lot of different fish, turtles, ducks, geese, and other wildlife.  But there are these particular ducks that are super friendly, but they are also just really ugly.  Sometimes they'll come right up to me while I'm walking.  They won't even get out of my way.  They just stand there like they own the place.

According to the neighbors, they are Muscovy ducks and they're all females.
