Sunday Deserves Some Sunshine

Today’s 44 took one of my favorite moves (burpees) and added in one of my least favorite (jumping lunges) for a great challenge!!!  

The move – a burpee (don’t forget he push-up!) jump up and immediately do 2 lunge jumps.

(FYI – the burpees in the demo actually make # 45, 46 & 47!)

Last night Hunter was trying to give me some more ideas for my 44s and he suggested a burpee with a tuck jump.  I told him I did those this summer on the beach in Florida!!!  He didn’t believe me so I had to find the video to prove it!!!  

While we were looking at YouTube, we came across this video –

44 (must be fate!) of the best burpee exercises ever!!!  I can’t wait to try more of these!!!

Mona @ Moxie-Dude was super sweet and nominated me for a sunshine award

I decided that this bitterly cold and snowy Sunday would be the perfect day to share some sunshine!!!!

I know there are supposed to be rules to these things but I pretty much suck at following them!!  I decided to start by answering Mona’s questions and then go from there.

1.  If the internet suddenly disappeared and you couldn’t blog anymore, what would you choose as a “release” for your writing and creativity?
Well, I don’t know that I am super creative in my writing anyway – I would probably just spend the extra time on my treadmill!!!

2.  What’s a perfect Saturday morning to you?  
I would say it is a day that I sleep in but that doesn’t really happen.  I do like the mornings when I don’t have to set an alarm and jump out of bed first thing.  I would take my time getting up, do my workout, have Chris and both boys home and not have to spend the day running all over the place or doing any errands – in other words LAZY!!

3.  Where do you see yourself and your blog in 3 years from now?
I will be 47 so I guess if I can stick with it that long, I will be doing daily 47s!!!  As for blogging, I hope to have met in person some of the incredible people that I have met online!!!  

4.  Is your family supportive of your blogging?
Yes, they are 100% supportive.  Chris reads my post every single day (and usually texts me after to make a comment of some sort so I know he read it).  The boys don’t seem to mind being part of my blog on many occasions and are more than willing to help me out with pictures/videos!!

5.  What’s you fav quick, easy and delicious dinner recipe?  (this one made me laugh – if you haven’t read Mona’s blog, you really should check it out!!!)
My favorite easy meal is going to involve the crock-pot for sure!!!  Hard to pick just one!  I’m going to go with French Dip because it is so easy!!!

Put a frozen roast in the crock pot.  Mix 2 c water, 1/2 c soy sauce (we use low-sodium), a bay leaf, some garlic powder, a few peppercorns, rosemary & thyme (just sprinkle some in).  Cook on low all day.  Shred.  Serve on Kaiser rolls with swiss cheese and use the juice to dip.

6.  Where is your favorite place to write?
This could read where is your favorite place to ___________?  No matter what is in the blank, my answer is the same!!!  THE BEACH!!!

7.  If you had to start your blog all over, what changes would you make?
     I think that I would have started commenting on other blogs sooner.  I was a complete newbie in the blog world and didn’t have a clue what I was doing for months!!!  

What would you keep?
This one is easy – I would keep all of the bloggy friends I have made because they (y’all) are the best part of blogging!!

8.  Vacation…with or without kids?
With!!  When the boys were younger I liked it when Chris and I could get away by ourselves.  Now, the boys are fun to have on vacation and that is part of the experience.  I’m hoping that even when they leave the nest they will still take vacations with us and one day that their spouses and kids will come, too!!

9.  What’s your best advice for overcoming writer’s block?
Since I’m not really a writer, I don’t truly deal with this!!!  I just make up some random stuff and move on!

And, like I said at the beginning – I’m not good at these the traditional way.  So I’m not making up 9 or 10 or 12  new questions and tag people – I can’t tag people because I think it supposed to be just a few and I would want to tag at least 100 people!!!

Instead – I will make up one question. 

How do you spread sunshine?  What is the temperature where you are?

So I lied and asked 2 questions!!!  We are actually at 10 degrees with about 4-5 inches of snow so I guess I can’t complain (but I will!) compared to all y’all even further north!

Happy Sunday!!
