A Driving Rant

Today’s 43 was HARD!!!  I got the move from Tamara at Fitknitchick.  She demoed a workout that included 5 favorite ab moves so I used one of the moves – the Surrender Squat.  

Start standing with a dumbbell held in both hands overhead (I used a 10 pound DB).  Kneel down – left knee, right knee  – then stand – left leg, right leg – repeat leading with your right leg = 1 rep.

43 of these were no joke!!!  And, I agree that these work your abs/core but you will also feel the move in your shoulders (from holding the DB overhead), your quads and your butt.  Try it – just a few will have you shaking!!

I decided to take another day off since I start Boot Camp up again on Monday – gotta be ready with some great workouts!!!

Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.09.59 AMAfter 2 long days of driving in the past week, I have a few issues to vent about!!!  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.16.48 AMThese signs are posted for a reason!!!  I’m rarely the slow driver – and when I have to pass someone that is just putting along in the left lane it drives me crazy!!!Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.07.56 AMIn fact, I think I will make my own sign for our next road trip!!!  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.08.17 AMMaybe we could start a system where all idiot drivers have one lane and the rest of us can have the other lane to ourselves!!!  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.17.55 AMSo, clearly I have a huge issue with people who just take up space in the left lane – especially when it means I have to hit my break and take off my cruise control because of them!Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.17.31 AMAnd, don’t even get me started on people who think that driving is a game!!!  It’s not a game and I don’t want to play with you on the highway!!!Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.19.07 AMIt’s called cruise control – try it – I promise it will make your driving life (and mine!) so much better!!!  I hate it when the same car and I go back and forth 20 times!!  I know that I’m driving the same speed because I love cruise control – please don’t pass me then slow down and let me pass you over and over!!  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.15.37 AMAnd the person who thinks they can zip up to the front of the line waiting to merge – I’m pretty much never going to let them in front of me.  If I had to wait in line because of the no passing sign then they should have waited, also!!!Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.31.54 AMReally?!  Yesterday, on more than one occasion, I ended up behind 2 trucks – both going the same speed but taking up the whole road.  WHY????  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.08.57 AMPeople who leave their turn signals on forever don’t annoy me as much as drivers who NEVER use their turn signal!  Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 8.11.23 AMTurn signals are a great driving device – they should get lots of use!!!  Especially if you feel the need to change lanes and cut right in front of me!!!

I feel much better now that I got all of my driving frustration off of my chest!!!  

What highway driving issues annoy you?

Here is a little clip with my least favorite part of the drive home from Abilene, TX.  There is a huge bridge that looks like you are going to drive off of the edge of the earth and it pretty much freaks me out every time!!!  (Jordan entertained himself filming this!)
