Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, It’s Off to the Doc I Go!

For my 43 today, I had Jordan take a couple of pictures yesterday since I knew it would be an early morning!  (However, I’m a complete dodo and set my alarm for 5:00 PM instead of AM – good thing I still woke up at 5:08!!!)

Anyway, the 43 would have been easy – a dead lift holding 15 pound dumbbells – but I decided to add an extra challenge:


Yep – I stood on the BOSU!!!

Standing still wasn’t too hard – the difficulty came when I started moving!!

I really do have my shoulders back - they just look schlumpy!

I love the extra benefit of using the BOSU for this move!  (I can’t believe that this is the first time I’ve ever used it for dead lifts!!!)

Dead lifts are one of my favorite moves – I think because they are so great for my hamstrings and butt!!!

After the balancing act I moved on to the rest of my work-out.  Les Mills Combat – Combat 60 Ultimate Fighter!!!  Perfect way to start a Monday!!!  Other than my 11 wall-sits at 1 minute each, that is the extent of working out today.  Super big plans for tomorrow’s work-out!!!  One I’m really looking forward to!!!

Today is my yearly physical/well-check – WooHoo – Good Times for Sure!!!!  Actually, I’m sort-of glad because this getting older is really not working out like I thought!  I’m pretty sure my DR will be happy when I leave today cause I have quite a list of stuff to ask her about!!!  Sadly, I’m sure I will be wearing one of these lovely items:Screen shot 2013-02-11 at 7.51.41 AM


Can hardly wait for that – I hope I can leave my socks on so I don’t freeze. (Fashion is over-rated sometimes!!)

I’m sure that even with my list (just petty little things, really!) I will walk away and not see her again until next year!  (Rare for me to go to the DR other than for my physical – except when I crack my hip!!!)

Happy Monday!!!  (hopefully y’all have as much fun this morning as I know I will!)
