Work That A** Wednesday! : High Heels Workout

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Okay, raise your hand with me, if you are too through with all of this snow!

raise your hand1

 

 This weather mayhem has gotten in the way of maintaining any normalcy to my workouts!!

Want to go to the gym, can’t get through the mounds of snow….

Finally able to wade through the snow to make it to the street, the gym closed early  * Forecast calling for several feet of new snow.  Like. Right. Now.*

Arghhhhhh!!!  Spring!  Where are you?!

I’ve exhausted the fitness workouts on my cable channels, so I went trolling on the ‘net to my ‘You-tube’ channel.

Took me a minute, but, I found this cray-zee HIGH HEEL workout!!

As if, tennis shoes aren’t challenging enough!  I’ve done it a couple of times – High Heels and all!

Hell! It can’t be that different from partying at the club… right!

You must try this.  Steel-let-toes and all!

So Luv-lies,
How’d you do? It’s like being in ‘the club’. Minus the cover.

It’s been the {Very Special} Birthday of  #TheBestDaughterInTheWorld!…. Mine!!!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY

Yeaaaaahhh!!!!!

*Throwing Confetti in The Air.  And doing my Happy Dance!!!*

So.  In addition to celebrating, I spent the later part of my weekend relaxing and surfing the ‘net.

One thing I love about surfing is finding something uniquely crazy.

This gadget fits the bill.  Nicely.

Perfect for today’s {Man Day} Monday feature

If you look closely,  you’ll notice that these two are actually walking!  That’s right! You do not see them pedaling!

This clever little ditty is the mastermind of Holland native- Bruin Bergmeester.

You see, it seems that he spends a good deal of his day sitting.  And when he’s not, he’s home on the treadmill.  As the story goes,

“One day it was lovely outside and Bruin did not fancy spending time on a bicycle, which meant sitting again, so he thought to himself: “Why not bring the treadmill outdoors?”

And this is what he came up with… he calls if the Lopifit.

He describes it as ‘not an electric bike, it’s not a scooter, it’s not a treadmill’

So what is it!  Why it’s all three.  Of Course.

Okay.  Now you know you want to be the first one of your friends have one.  Admit it.

This is too clever for me.  Sign me up.  I want one!

The only question is  ‘Where can I order one of these?’.

Spoiler Alert!

… it’s only a prototype … *bummer*   *big bummer*

I’ll keep my eye on this one.  When it comes to market, you’ll be the first ones to know!

What unique craziness is going on in your life?

Good Evening, Luv – lies

The weather here is awesome! And it’s only Spring. Since the weather is a beauty,  thought I’d take my first official ‘outside’ run.

Planned to run a 10k but the endorphins kicked in!!!   *don’t you just live that natural high thingy? !*   Ended up putting in 10 miles!!  *Woot Woot!!!* 
I was beaming. Ear. To. Ear. …. Yepppp! 🙂

Until this…

Yepppp!   Took a Big fall!   Right at the end of the run!  OUCH!!!!!!

Namaste’

Hello Luv-lies,

Remember that I said that I was going to add more yoga to my fitness routine?  Well, I’ve been trying reallllly hard to keep up with this inspiration.

One of the reasons that this has been so challenging is –  finding a class at a yoga studio that fits into my crazy schedule.

Arghhhh! Don’t you hate that!

Not to be defeated, I found this GREAT Yoga Video Site.   I know that there are tons of yoga video out there (trust me.  I’ve seen my share of them).  But I think that I’ve nailed it on this series!   I’ve done several of the ‘classes’ and I must say, I feel like I’m back in the yoga studio.

Most important… All of the classes fit nicely into my schedule.  Whoa! Hoo!

I posted one  of the videos above so that you can give it a test run.   And, if you like it – then you can subscribe.  I did!

Nothing like a good find. Right?

What goodies have you found lately?

Yoga For Wine Lovers

Hello Luv-lies,

I’ve finally added Yoga back into my workout routine.  I’m not yet sure how many days  I’ll be doing it, but I do have to say that it is sooooo good having it back into the mix.  I’ve realized that I miss the slowness of the movements, the calmness that comes with every ‘chi’ breathe and the control & focus…. oh the control & focus!

It’s funny that today is the day that I decided to go back there, mostly because I found this clever little ditty in my mailbox that I’m dying to share with you.

For all of the yogis, you’ll definitely appreciate this.  And for all of you Luv-lies thinking about delving into the world of yoga, this might just be the push that you need.

Enjoy!

iNspIRation: WorkOut *Bling*

Good Morning Lu-lies,

The temperature here has been dropping daily *yikes*.

Being a  ‘hot weather person’, I thought that having to bring my running game inside would cause me to lose interest, but, so far it has not happened !!!!

I am certain that my perception of fall/winter running is probably not as bad as I think  the monsters in my mind have me tripping over pebbles, running too far and not having enough energy to run back, running out of water, having to stop to use the restroom – and not having one readily available…. 

But until I conquer the crazies, I’m inside.

In my efforts to be proactive about this whole staying focused thing, I’ve decided to go trolling for some new fitness gear.  Hey You, no judgment 🙂 … a girl’s gotta have a reason to shop, right?

This is what I found    *some of it is sparkly*

This little gem is probably not practical, but I do luv the *bling*, *bling*.  This is some kinda of special if you luv to sparkle while you sweat.  Not to mention being a sucker for glitz!

Found this really cool hand stamped necklace.  This piece is great as a gift for a personal trainer or as an inspiration for the newbie – like me!

Running the 5K inspired me to work toward running a half marathon next year…. YES!!

The plan is to run, at least one, half marathon.  *throwing confetti in the air for inspiration* .  Perhaps this little baby will keep me inspired and less focused on the craziness of this new found goal.

I figure that with all of this training, I’m going to need something to rock all of those medals.  What do you think?

I reeeallly ❤ the crown on this one… a lot

Well Luv-lies,  this shopping spree could go on forever, so I think I’ll stop with these rocking pieces.

So, what inspires you?
