Evening! Wow – what a fun morning of blog posts. I’m really excited about the OnlineShoes.com Ratty Sneakers Contest – make sure you enter for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate!
And the Reader Poll was really great to read. I learned most of you would rather have all the money you could ever need instead of being able to read minds. A LOT of you have run half marathons (wow!) or even MULTIPLE marathons. And an amazing percentage of you like Britney Spears. 🙂
Work was easy, easy! I just cannot wait until Friday – then I’m freeeeeee until we come back from the honeymoon.
This morning I snacked on a Z-Bar.
Lunch was a yummy platter of stuff, like savory cheese, roasted turkey, and about two servings of crackers.
There’s something delightful about means you put together as you eat. 🙂
With some apricots…
I went back for more and finished off the bag 🙂
And some celery and carrots, which I only ate 1/2 of.
My mid-afternoon snack was yogurt + cereal.
An hour later, I went back for another 1/2 a bowl :).
After work, I went over to our friend Harry’s house and we watched Elf! Best movie EVER. I know every single line; it’s kind of sick.
"Bye Buddy, I hope you find your dad!" "Thanks, Mr. Norwell."
Harry made me a salad…
A small bowl of popcorn…
And a serving of vanilla wafers.
Yea… a pretty lame dinner, but not horrible!
December Challenge – Making Abs Fun, Day 5
Here’s a very fun and different ab exercise. No annoying hands-over-head-crunching motion! This move is called X Obliques. Courtesy of Fitness Magazine.
- Lie faceup with arms and legs outstretched, forming an X.
- Lift upper back off floor, cross left leg over right and lift legs straight up as you reach arms, palms together, past left knee.
- Return to start.
- Repeat on opposite side for one rep.
I did15 reps. This was sooo challenging! 🙂
To recap, here’s the December Challenge so far:
- Day 1: Planks
- Day 2: Table Leg Leg Lift
- Day 3: Captain’s Chair
- Day 4: "V" Sit-Ups
- Day 5: Bicycle Crunches
- Day 6: X Obliques
Have a GREAT night! Oh, I skipped my run tonight, but I’m going to go tomorrow morning!
