Today I started with a plan for my 43 and ended up having to do an extremely modified version!!! I used my BOSU & stability ball for some hard-core push-ups!!
I put my legs on the stability ball and my hands on the upside down BOSU to do push-ups. Not easy because the BOSU wobbles when it is upside down and the stability ball wants to roll every where – good for the core though because you have to work so hard just to maintain your balance.
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 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!!!
Guess I should get busy – Chris has almost finished cleaning the whole house while I’ve been sitting here – oops!!!
