Post-Thanksgiving Fat Blaster

29 Nov

Workout Wednesday Thursday!

Remember me?! It’s been a whirlwind of a week; actually, a whirlwind of the past weekS! Work, homework, projects, work #2, Thanksgiving, traveling-tis the time of the year! It’s okay though; everything turned out fine. Homework done, projects turned in, classes are completed, and both works are running juuuuust fine.

I’ve completed my first 2 classes of graduate school! Hooray. Only 6 more to go..

I’ve taken over product notifications for work. I send out weekly emails to all of our guests of all the new product(s) we have in the store! So much fun once I got the hang of it! If you’re interested; go to lululemon.com, find your store, and sign up for weekly PN emails! It’s a great way to know what your store has in for the holiday season :).

Aaaaand on the workout front..

Post-Thanksgiving fat blaster! Indulging is the definition of the holiday season-as it should be! The holiday’s aren’t about “I can’t eat that” or “I’m going to have to work extra hard tomorrow”; it’s about the loved ones around us, friends, and giving back. Let’s not forget that :).

I completed this workout after teaching BLAST; 3 times through takes about 15 minutes. Such a quick workout for days when we can’t fit in an entire sweat-sesh. High intensity, toning and cardio, and core work all included.

*Angled burpees– instead of jumping or walking your feet back into plank, jump/walk feet out to the right for one rep, then the left for the next rep. This works your obliques more than a regular plank.

Oakland Students/Employees/Members- subscribe to both this blog AND our Campus Recreation blog! Lot’s of good things to come.

Cheers 😀

One Lovely Blog Award!

5 Jun

I had an exciting and honorable email when I returned to my desk this afternoon, Michelle has awarded me as one of the recipients of The Lovely Blog Award!

The rules of the game:

  1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Paste the reward image on your blog, anywhere you choose.
  3. Share 7 facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate other bloggers you like.
  5. Post a comment on each of your nominees blogs’ telling them about the nomination.

7 facts about me:

  1. I rode horses when I was younger and had a pony named Drummie, “Windy Hills Distant Drummer” was his show name. We went to various shows and I became the Short Stirrup champion! I probably killed him too..details.. 🙂
  2. I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 2, 2010 in 4:07 but you’ll never find it online. Why, you ask? Instead of wearing the timing band, I wore the instructions on how to put the timing band on my shoe. My aunt called my mom, numerous times, and said I haven’t left the start line when I was done with the race. Did I mention I’m a blonde?
  3. I hate anything and everything white and creamy; mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, ranch, and whipped cream. I refuse to eat anything if it’s made with any of the above!
  4. I am deathly afraid of tornadoes, even though I’ve never been in one EXCEPT in 2011 when I was getting Zumba certified. Oh, am I’m technically Zumba certified.
  5. I eat the core of the apple-yes, there’s nothing left after I eat an apple. I do spit out the seeds sometimes and won’t eat the twig at the top. AND I only eat my own cores so don’t try and pawn yours off on me!
  6. I played lacrosse in high school for 2 weeks, then quit after realizing no one stops and congratulates you after scoring (think hockey-style). I really just wanted to be a part of the team..and carry a pink stick.
  7. I’ve never broken, sprained, or tore anything in my body and have perfect vision but convinced my parents that 1) every time I fell “something is seriously broken” and have to get it checked out and 2) I needed glasses and swore I could see dead people double until the doctor told me to stop coming.
  8. Because this one’s too funny. My friend and I disliked the ice cream man growing up so much that we plotted to do the “suck it” motion to him. Of course my friend was late and he was coming up the hill. I did it. He parked the van and chased me down. My dad had to settle him and apologize for my actions. I never bought ice cream again.. 😀

And I nominate:
