Good morning, and happy Friday! It’s super exciting that it’s already the weekend, but I bet next week will drag fo sho.
Here’s some Friday randomness for you!
Are you feeling ab-tastic yet?
Today is Day 4 of the 31 Day Abs Challenge, and your challenge is to focus on a part of your core other than abs! Links to the exercises can be found in this post. Tomorrow you have a rest day, and then Sunday I’ll post next week’s challenges.
Some new workout jams, mmkay?
Best Body Bootcamp
…yep, I signed up again. How could I not?! Tina is the best. It starts up again next week. This is round 4, but round 3 for me!
Attention popcorn lovers!
Unreal new delicious twist for cases of the munchies, thank you Women’s Health…
What I’m watching now…
…now that Homeland is over that is.
Tim and I trying to catch up so we can watch the new season when it’s back on again.
New desk material…
And some other things you may or may not care about:
- I have been so, so, so sore from my New Year’s Day workout all week.
- Happy to have Erica back in class yesterday! Booty blasters were in order for her return.
- My WordPress blog account sent me a 2012 annual report and told me my top 5 most frequent commenters are Monique (115 comments), my mom (89 comments), Ashley P (44 comments), Liz (37 comments), and Jen @ Nutcaseinpoint (36 comments). I dare you to try to beat their records this year! (Thanks, ladies!)
- Made my own salad dressing for the first time this week. I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to buying bottles or jars?
- Can it be warm again yet? I think I’m ready to start planning my next vacation.
- Before I do that though, still gotta take down the Christmas stuff. I usually like to wait for the REAL 12 days of Christmas (the 12 days after Christmas that take you through January 6th, Epiphany… did anyone else know that?) to take down my Christmas decorations. I hate un-decorating!
- I have a ton, ton, ton of recipe posts coming your way.
That’s about it!
Leave a comment with some randomness of your own, or on anything I wrote about today. How are the abs doing, what tv show are you watching now, what’s on your desk at work, any new favorite snack or workout song I should know about? When do you un-decorate for Christmas? Ever make your own dressing?
Hope everyone has a fantastically relaxing weekend ahead, after you get those back moves in!
I am so glad to hear you are sore from NYE workout since I can barely walk…glad its not just me. Also-it’s so cold I am going to work from home…forever.
Do you watch Girls? I got into it last year and its coming back…its a good one but Tim would probably not enjoy it. If you don’t watch Californication, I’d recommend that for as something you’d both enjoy but be prepared for some adult content.
I do watch Girls, I forced Tim to watch it with me and he totally did not enjoy it as much as I did. It’s sooooo awkward! Californication is on our potential list of shows to watch once we are finished with Shameless!
haha Here is post 116:) I, too, am still sore! mostly my inner thighs- win, win sore spot if you ask me! ANDDDDD I NEED that “keep calm and kickbox on” pic… where did you get that!?!?
finally, i had NO idea about the 12 days of Christmas being after Christmas, but that is good since I am FINALLY going to teach my12 days of fitness tomorrow morning!
I ordered it online from Zazzle.com… it was like $3! What did you end up teaching for your 12 days of fitness?
oh i am ordering that asap!!!
12 Days of Fitness:
12 Alternating Lunges
11 Bicep curls while balancing on Bosu ball
10 Mtn climbers on Bosu with ball side down
9 weighted squats on Bosu (halfway through I did the squats with the Bosu like you did in class)
8 V Sit Ups
7 SHoulder press’ while balancing on Bosu ball
6 pushups on Bosu
5 Burpees with Bosu
4 Tricep Extensions (and then hold & pulse for 16 cts)
3 sets of 5 double armed rows while balancing on Bosu
2 jump squats onto Bosu
1 min plank
let me know if you try it– it’s a whole lotta lunges, bicep curls and mtn climbers:)
Totally agree with Jess! Girls is amazing! The first episode is… ehh. But they continually get better and better as the season goes on. I absolutely can’t wait for the season to start again!!
(And yes! I’m down with the real 12 days of Christmas, although I cheated this year and ripped everything down before New Years. Decorations after Christmas remind me I still have to clean. Blahh!)
Maybe we should all have a Girls viewing party!
Great post! Unfortunatly I am dying of the flu but I have been coaching Ben through the ab challenge I plan to catch up on all either today or tomorrow..Promise! Shameless is awesome, not as good as Homeland but still look forward to it every week. Thanks for the popcorn idea as anything salty is my downfall. See you soon!
I have been eating the popcorn snack every single time we watch Shameless!
My Mom usually keeps her tree up until Jan. 6th. She calls it little Christmas. Glad to know she is not the only one.
Nope, I’m with her! Took it down yesterday.
Glad to be in the number 2 spot! The Abs challenge is going great, keeping up at my age! Plus my usual workouts. Just did an hour on the Swiss ball, my favorite! Tree is coming down now, sorry not waiting till Jan. 6 but working on Sunday.
P.S. I love Homeland, one more episode to finish Season One. Watching NCIS and Hawaii Five-O, but thinking of starting 24 again, miss that show!
You have to watch Season 2 now!
Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
