I Choose Happiness!!!

Today’s 44 is one that Josie @ Yum Yucky demoed the other day.  It is called a living plank and it is fun!!!  

Start in plank with a kettlebell (you could use a dumbbell) above your head.  With your right hand, move the KB down near your thighs.  Use your left hand and return the KB to the start = 1 rep.

Try this for a new way to spice up your plank.  The last few reps were hard – I had to work hard to lift the KB and not drag it!

Today, I choose to be happy and share some happy things.

Saturday – Wrestling Tournament:

waiting - lots & lots of waiting
waiting – lots & lots of waiting


almost time

fixing to shake!

I don’t totally get all that goes along with wrestling – it is new to me – but Hunter had 3 matches on Saturday – he lost his first then came back to win his 2nd which sent him to the consolation round.  He won that match  by pinning his opponent!!!

Sunday – Cello Group Concert:

This concert was Hunter’s cello group, a clarinet group and a flute group – all were great.  The cellos ended the program with a version of William Tell’s Overture – it was awesome!!
