SLLLULRRRRRRP… 🙂 mmm coffee time!
FIRST THINGS FIRST: Check out this 7 second video of a bear. My theory is he comes from the direct genetic line of the one that inspired the idea of a teddy bear… 🙂
I have been told that a weak core is what is “killing” me. It’s creating the “butt wink” in my squat (where the tail bone curls under)… A toned stomach does NOT equate to a strong stomach. Well, here is it Sunday and my return to CrossFit workout from Wednesday still has my core practically paralyzed… maybe the workout the next day, and then the long run friday didn’t help? ANYWAY, I clearly need work so I have started a challenge.
I found this last night and I started last night. Then I knocked out today’s. It is the background for the lock screen on my phone. it’s up to me, but it won’t be because I “forgot”
So, I didn’t get sleep last night (I worked as dispatcher 16.5 hours overnight) and the plan was originally to go to the gym and then do yoga. I almost said “to hell with the gym” when I remembered the post I read recently about some 90s variation of workout videos. Ashley did a combination of Arms and Abs…
I did not survive 8 min Abs very well.
1. My core is still tender (I think maybe my DOMS is throwing a temper tantrum of nuclear proportions?)
2. My core is still weak (two days of a challenge doesn’t solve that)
3. But I did what I could, so it’s a step in the right direction
As for 8 minute arms, I was able to chuckle a little at the things he says because I didn’t feel like my abdomen was on fire. I used 5# DBs the first time b/c I didn’t know what to expect. I used 8# for most exercises the next time. Tricep kickbacks and reverse flies I had to drop to 5#.
Now, it’s time to share another recipe! ❤ Paul and I seem to adore meatloaf. It is almost a weekly visitor. Seldom the same one. But occasionally, we find one we do know we will revisit because it’s just a bit…. more tasty. It hits the tastebuds juuuuuust right.
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 3 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce (I substituted Liquid Aminos)
- 2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add the ingredients to a bowl.
Great, I feel better about myself now. (my already sore abs are hurting more because I can’t stop laughing at the cake. the longer I look at it the funnier it is). I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It’s naptime and then restoration yoga time.
What have you done to stay active this weekend?
Ever had your own variation on a Pinterest fail??
