The Balance to My Crazy

For my 44 today I decided to do an Olympic inspired move!!  We were watching the men’s 5000 earlier and so I decided to be a skater, too.  (minus the ice and skates!!!)

I counted a right and left as 1 rep and this move went quickly.  Fun way to get my heart rate up a bit.

I haven’t been talking about my workouts a whole lot lately because it is pretty repetitive – Michelle Bridges and running!!!

Over the past few weeks I’ve mentioned a time or 100 that I’m a bit stressed these days.  And the whole stolen identity didn’t help!!!  

Yesterday morning was one of those times that it all seemed to be spiraling out of control.  It didn’t help that I had been awake most of the night feeling sick so I wasn’t 100% but I also wasn’t sick.  I think it is just stress spiraling out of control!

He has always said he’s Teflon Turner –

I might never be Teflon and things might never slide off me like they do Chris but I’m going to try a little harder to just roll with things!

What about you – are you the Teflon kind or more like me where everything piles up?

Happy Saturday!!!



Friday Fun Laughs

Today’s 43 was one of Hunter’s creations – I think sometimes he wants to see how hard he can push me!!!!  He does a couple and calls it quits but I have to do 43.  Oh, well – I like the challenge!!!

So, the move was a skater with a side push-up with one leg back and one knee bent.

Try them – it was a fun move (for about 20)!!!  I counted each push-up as 1 so maybe I cheated because I didn’t do 43 each side but I think 43 total was enough with this move!!!

Then it was Boot Camp time.  This morning I just did the 6 am in my backyard.  (Last Friday I did 6 and 7:15!!!)  I’m really happy that the hot weather this week has meant no more wet grass for boot camp – so much nicer!!!

Today’s Insanity Asylum workout was Back to Core.  Jordan decided to do this with me instead of just sit and watch (and critique) me.  I think it was good for him – he did about 25-30% and was dying.  And, I told him this is the “easiest” one in the program.  Now he knows that just because watching it is easy, doing the workout is another thing completely.  He said he will try some more so that he can build up – Good Plan!!! Screen shot 2013-06-14 at 8.38.52 AMI try to have fun no matter what I’m doing – some days and some events are a little harder than others to find the fun!!

Screen shot 2013-06-14 at 8.55.34 AMYIKES!!!  Don’t want that – better just laugh out loud!!!

So – I don’t really think anyone is an idiot but this made me laugh!!!

Sponge Bob knows how to laugh – and he laughs often (and annoyingly!!!).

Screen shot 2013-06-14 at 8.40.09 AMAlmost every day – often while running!!!  And then I always do the quick check to see if anyone saw me about bite the ground!!!

These things always entertain me (and because I’m sort-of anal I won’t quit looking until I can figure it out!!).

I couldn’t do this without going really slow – and I rarely say things slowly!!!  (even then it took a lot of tries!!)

This just made me laugh because I’m usually the one that asks a stupid question like “what are you doing?” when it totally obvious what someone is doing!!!

Happy Fun Friday – I hope you have lots of joy and laughter today!!!!
