I Love the Olympics but I’m not Loving the Coverage

Yesterday Chris and I went to Dick’s to get a new pull-up bar since ours was worn out.  (The boys, especially Hunter use it a LOT and the handles had lost all padding – good problem to have!!)  Anyway, while we were there, I saw a box with these 4 balance balls –

looks how great these are
looks how fun these are

and felt like I NEEDED them!!!

I decided to use them this morning for my 44.  I thought push-ups with each hand and foot on one would be a great move!!!


This was definitely a challenge!!  I can’t wait to incorporate these fun little gems into more moves!!!

And, the 44 push-ups this morning put me at a nice round 450 push-ups for the week for Taylor’s February challenge.   The goal this week was 400 push-ups and in 6 days I did 450!!!  Glad that we are going back to lunges next week – lunge jumps actually!!!

I also did a quick Turbo Jam workout – 3T (Totally Tubular Turbo).  This is toning with a resistance band – I can tell I haven’t done much with bands lately!!!

I’ve written about the Olympics a couple of times in the past week because I love watching them!!!  

However, I have to say that the 2014 Olympics have not been my favorite and I think it is because of how very little is being shown on TV.  I think that NBC has done an awful job with the coverage this year.

Just yesterday, the entire morning on NBC Sports Network was devoted to hockey.  It was fine during the United States vs Russia game (way to go U.S.!) but then they kept showing other teams.  Why didn’t they use any of the time to show the  other events that are going on?

And, I’m disappointed that we aren’t getting to see any medal ceremonies.  I have had the Olympics on a LOT in the past week and I think I’ve seen 1 medal ceremony.  I love watching the athletes receive their medals and sing along to whatever their National Anthem is.

Have you been watching the Olympics?
Are you disappointed with the coverage?

Happy Sunday!
