Yes, sometimes they drive us cookoo but that is what family is ALL about.

Monday Morning Rambles 11/3/14

Hey loves!!!! Technically it is already the afternoon but not for my West Coast peeps so it all works out ha. I did have the video recorded earlier but had to run out to the post office so I couldn’t post it but honestly I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. On today’s MMR I speak about Sisterhood of the Fierce Traveling Journal and a Movie called The Lunchbox.

http://thescorecardreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/the-lunchbox-poster02.jpg

Well the reason that I had to run out was because my package from the traveling journal was shipped to the wrong post office and I had to go pick it up. The other post office is in a predominantly Indian neighborhood and I went to an Indian store and asked them for the lunch box that was featured in the movie (the lady  was impressed that I saw the movie and had a photo lol) unfortunately the one that they did have was too big but she is going to order a smaller one for me. People this lunchbox is so awesome…it look like a thermos but it comes apart into different compartments and you could put all your various foods in it. This movie is so great and if you have Starz; it is on demand (not in HD) right now.

This weekend I began to personalize my Journal. I am part of Team Focus and decided to paint a camera in the inside cover (I talk more about this on vlog)

Have a great Monday and make it awesome!

Workout Wednesday: Is There Anybody Out There?

Happy Wednesday! Sooooo I was debating if I should even post WW anymore because I honestly didn’t know if anyone was watching but I asked on my Facebook fanpage and It turns out that people are watching. Like I said in a previous post; if one single person is watching and it motivates them to make a change…it is definitely worth it.

Today’s workout is a fun one…you will need 1 Kettlebell or Dumbbell that weighs around 15-30lbs (depending on your level of fitness) and an interval timer as well.

We will be doing 3-4 rounds of 10 moves with 40 seconds of effort and 20 seconds of rest (take a 2 minute break between each round)

3 - 4 ROUNDS OF 10 MOVES W/ 40 SECONDS OF EFFORT & 20 SECONDS OF REST

1.RUSSIAN SWINGS

2.SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT

3.SAME ON RIGHT

4.CLEAN AND PRESS

5.SAME ON RIGHT

6.SUITCASE DEADLIFT

7.SAME ON RIGHT

8.UPRIGHT ROW

9.BUTTERFLY SITUPS

10. KNEE TWIST/PUSH PLANK COMBO

 

Have a great day!
