City rats go to the suburbs

It’s almost Friday!!!!!  I have had a very long week so I am very much looking forward to this weekend.

Admittedly, we do not get out of the city much.  With how bad traffic is around Chicago and the fact that Penelope hates her car seat after 5 minutes, there really isn’t much of an incentive to get in the car and drive.  But last weekend, we made an exception.  We went to Goebbert’s Farm, which was about 45 minutes away (without traffic…on the way home, it took much longer…grrrr).  Everyone agreed that it was worth the trip out there for the petting zoo alone.  Here are a couple pictures from our crazy adventure out into the suburbs.

In other news, I have actually gotten better about working out and eating somewhat healthy.  I’ve been plagued by headaches this pregnancy and cutting sugar from my diet seems to have helped a little.  This afternoon, I completed the following workout:

Jog/walk x 25 minutes followed by…

3 Rounds of:

wall sits w/ bicep curls x 15
squat jumps w/ overhead press x 15
plank x 40 seconds
Russian Twists x 15
Push-ups x 10
Step-ups x 10

It was one of the better workouts that I’ve done in a while and I’m hoping to keep the trend going into the weekend!
