Wacky Wednesday

Today I did 44 “chest, fly, bangers” with a hip raise.  Basically, I kept my hips up (the entire time) while doing a chest press, opening to a fly, bringing the weights back together and doing a head banger (triceps) before lowering the weights to repeat.

Once again, the video was after doing all of my 44  and my workout – my arms were shaking the entire time.  I used 10 pound weights which was plenty for the # I did.

I tried a new DVD today – Jillian Michaels – Hard Body.  Yikes!!!  I did Level 1 (there are 2 45 minute workouts) and it really pushed me today.  In fact (here’s something wacky), I actually did the modifications on a couple of the moves – not quite ready to go hard core I guess!!!

Hunter always has “Wacky Wednesday” at school – not really sure what is different from other days but I decided that today could use a bit of wacky!!!

Ice Hotel
Ice Hotel

I can’t even imagine staying in a hotel made of ice – just looking at this picture is making me cold!!!

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 5.01.49 PMDriving around in this might be kind of fun for a day or so!!!  I wonder if there are any restrictions involved?!

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 5.06.18 PMThis completely cracks me up!!

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 5.11.16 PMUmm….I don’t even ride roller coasters the way they are meant to be ridden.  This guy is an IDIOT!!!

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 5.13.01 PMI guess this gives a whole new meaning to – “basket toss!”

Screen shot 2013-10-15 at 5.05.31 PMI think it would be impossible to be in a bad mood driving around in this van!

And I’m really not even sure how I feel about this!!  I’ve seen the Prancercise video several times now and really can’t tell if she is being serious with this or if it is supposed to be a joke!

Rest assured – no form of prancercizing will ever be a daily 44!!!

And, the final wacky – 

back to my normal short hair!!!
back to my normal short hair!!!

Last night I told Jennifer that I was done with the hair growing out gig – back to short!!!  (umm…this picture would be early morning right after my workout so hopefully I can fruiff it a bit more!!)

Happy Wacky Wednesday!!!  


Texas Longhorns Win the Alamo Bowl!!!!

Hook ’em Horns!!!!  Way to end the year with a big win!

The 43 today was another combo move – you know I love combos!!!  It was a power fly.  I started on my back and then lifted my hips (I kept my hips up the entire time it took to complete the 43).  Each time I did a fly with my arms, I did a knee pull to my chest (alternating my knees).  I counted a right knee pull and a left knee pull as one rep so I actually did 86 chest flys!!!  Good thing I stuck with 10 pound dumbbells!!!

I had to keep giving myself a little pep talk – I said at 23 I would take a short break but I didn’t!!  I said 33 would be the short rest – NO!!!  I made all 43 (86) without taking a break!!!

Today was day 5 of the 12 Days of Fitness – added in 5 frog crunches!

I am totally loving Hunter’s new punching bag/speed bag combo!!  I have decided it is a great substitute for me while I can’t run – I get a great cardio work-out with it and my arms are like jello after I’m done!!!  A total win!!!

Today I did 50 right jabs, 50 left jabs, 500 right-left punches  x 5 sets.  I didn’t take any breaks and it took 19 minutes.  Total of 3000 punches – 1500 with each arm and my arms are still shaking!!!  I also worked on the speed bag for about 2.5 minutes – I still don’t have great timing – hopefully it will get better!  I love the way I feel my triceps working when I hit the speed bag.    Who knows – maybe I will have a new career soon!

It could be fun!  I wonder if the boys would come watch or be embarrassed?  Hmmm…..

Hunter has added another Rubik Cube to his collection – the 2 x 2 cube.  I didn’t even know there was such a thing until recently!!!  This one came yesterday afternoon in the mail (I had ordered these specialty ones and they were a bit late for Christmas – oh, well – extended Christmas for Hunter!!!)

Last night it was great to watch the Longhorns win!  They haven’t played up to their potential the last year or two – hopefully Mac Brown is right and 2013 will be their year!!!

Happy Sunday!
