For the 43 today I took on one of my biggest challenges of all times – Pull-ups!!! Today all 3 of my boys participated!!!
(that would be a total of 3 for Jordan!)
(2 for Hunter – but he hasn’t been able to do them because of the broken wrist earlier in the fall)
(Chris in his very first demo for me – 12 – way to go, Babe!!)
The only times I have ever been able to do real pull-ups are after I have gone through P90X and P90X2. It has been awhile since I have done either of those programs (slacker, here!!) so I had to do assisted pull-ups in order to get in 43 (or even 1!). I used a stool (I tried to use it minimally and not completely push off of it each time) to help.
(I didn’t feel the need for you to watch all 43 of mine – it was painful and not pretty!)
Not gonna lie – even with the “cheat” this was a HARD 43!!! Clearly, I need to start trying to do pull-ups more often!
After the family pull-up event, I did another work-out: Turbo Jam 20 minute work-out. This is the first time in over 3 weeks that I have done any Turbo work-outs and even though I had to keep it low impact (see, Doc, I sort-of listen!) it was fun!!!
Yesterday after skating across a couple of icy parking lots, braving Wal-Mart (what was I thinking on that one?) and a marathon grocery shopping expedition, I came home to this:
And after a bit I looked outside and saw this lovely site:
I guess you never get to old for fun in the snow!!!
I did not choose to participate in the snow play – I am
sort-of a complete hater of snow and cold weather!!! Instead, I had this as my treat for dealing with the madness of the shopping world:
This stuff is sooooo good!!! There is also a chocolate cake vodka – equally tasty.
Happy Saturday!!! I hope you don’t have any crazy Wal-Mart shopping to endure!
