Today’s 43 utilized my figure-8 band:
I put it around my ankles and did a side-lying leg lift with the added challenge of keeping my bottom leg off the ground – a double leg pull against the band.
The first 25 weren’t too bad – it was kind of nice to do a move where I could “relax” – then by the last 20ish my outer thigh and hips were burning!!! And, I still had to do 43 on the other side!!
I felt the 2nd side much sooner – because my hips were already on fire!!!
Another day of Insanity Asylum – Speed and Agility. This was hard in every way today!!! My legs were tired from the beginning! I think the double (and a couple days of triple) workouts last week are catching up. But I’m a little anal and want to finish this Insanity program the way it is set up!!! (just 2 more weeks!)
This is a totally different kind of post for me!! It’s a fun little A-Z quiz. I was tagged by the lovely Nellie at Brooklyn Active Mama to complete this Old School Blogging Quiz being hosted by Elaine and Jennifer.
A. Attached or Single?
Married -we just celebrated our 17th anniversary!!!

giant insulated mug (full of water!)

S. Season of choice?
Summer!!! Fall is a close 2nd.
OK – tagging people is why I typically stay away from these kind of quizzes. I don’t mind doing the quiz but it is hard for me to pick just 5 (I would love to learn more about all my blogging friends) – and I never want anyone to feel obligated to participate!!!
I was born in the Philippine Islands.
does avocado count?
squash & zucchini
W. Worst habit?
I might have a
bit of a problem with road rage (but only because people do stupid things on the road!!).
