Favorite Things

Today’s 44 used one of my favorite pieces of equipment – 


I did a bicycle crunch while trying to stay balanced on the BOSU.  


Umm….this was hard!!  I wobbled, nearly fell off many times, touched my feet to the ground….but I did manage to get 44 crunches to each side.

I did another favorite workout today – Les Mills Combat – Combat 60 Live, Ultimate Warriors Workout.  This one is fun and because of the number of reps on some of the moves it is not only cardio but offers a nice toning workout, too.  And, the time flies by!!!

BTW – this week for the February challenge with Taylor we are doing 50 push-ups and 50 lunges every day.  I’m making my lunges walking lunges because I like them!!!

I say that some things are my favorites a LOT because I think I have tons of favorites.  Today I thought I would share a few – this is pretty much an ever changing list!!

Food:  This one is hard – it changes and I don’t know that I could pick just one food as a favorite.  Maybe pizza – pretty sure I could eat it almost every day (but I don’t!).

Book:  I love to read but I rarely re-read any books.  The one book that I have read many times is from my childhood – Little Women.

Person:  Well, there is no way I can pick just one!!!

Favorite Things

The 43 today was another version of the good ‘ol push-up!  I love trying all different types of push-ups and today’s was a good one!

I used my BOSU again!


Today, however, I flipped it over for the move.

and down

After Jordan did a few awesome push-ups, I did 43 using the BOSU.  I was able to do all of them on my toes – just had to stop and do a quick stretch 2 times before I finished!

I also did my standard (standard for these days – while I can’t do a real work-out) work-out:  Pick your Spot Pilates.  I did all 3 sections again – belly, butt, thighs.

This morning when I was driving home, after dropping Hunter off at school, I heard the song My Favorite Things by Lorrie Morgan.

The song made me think of some of my favorite things (it is an ever-changing list except for the top). Here are some of my favorites on this bitterly cold Monday:

  • Chris, Jordan, Hunter
  • seat heaters in my car (even though Jordan always puts on  the seat cooler for his seat – even today when it is only 10 degrees – crazy!!!)
  • hot Chai
  • crockpot (with tonight’s dinner cooking away!)
  • Christmas lights in every room!
  • text from a friend
  • running (just not today or for awhile)
  • sappy, predictable Christmas movies on Lifetime
  • fleece (doesn’t matter what really – shirt, pants, blankets…)
  • music
  • pictures

I could go on but I have to get busy addressing Christmas cards!!!  Normally I used the kind of envelopes that you just peel off the back and stick – not this year for some reason (oh yeah, the size of the picture).  I’m not sure about licking 150+ envelopes.

Maybe I will find a damp sponge!!!

Happy Monday!
