I confess... I've said good morning and good night to all of our herb plants since we've put them in our apartment. Le Husband and I are trying to see if we can keep them alive long enough to use them. Talking to plants has been proven to help them grow, so I figure a good morning and good night works well. Fingers crossed for us, please.
I confess... I ate four servings of goldfish yesterday. F O U R! I know, bad girl, but dude, they are soooooo gooooood!
I confess... As I've started to re-watch Downton Abbey, I've re-fallen in love with Maggie Smith. She is an amazing actress in any role, but is superb as the Dowager Countess. I feel the writers haven't been fair to her the past two seasons, but season one she was delightfully witty.
I confess... Weather complainers drive me batty. It's too hot, it's too cold, it's too humid, it's too rainy, blah blah blah. Pick season to dislike and stick with it. Or got live in California. We've had a horrible winter here, but apparently many people long for the days of cold weather because it's "already too hot". Zip it, or move, thank you very much!
I confess... I had the supreme urge to yell these insults at someone yesterday. Yup, I'm a pottymouth! hashtagSIKE!
I confess... I tried this ab exercise I found on pinterest and couldn't manage HALF of it. These girls are wicked strong, they aren't even breaking a sweat. Le Husband chuckled at my, um, antics in the living room when I attempted the video, Monday night. [I may have said 'I'm dyyyyyyyyyying' 100 times]. Give it a whirl, let me know what you think....
Today, I'm also linking up with my BOFF for Workout Wednesday's.
I've kept the same workout routine for the past five months.
It's all about lifting more weight, to get stronger.
And, I'm reaping the benefits, with strength.
When Le Husband I first started working out this year,
we both super sluggish and weak.
Since January, we've both seen a dramatic improvement in our lifting.
::Here are some of my stats::
Max chest in January [8 reps]: 65 lbs
Max chest in May [8 reps]: 100 lbs
35 lbs stronger
Max squat in January [8 reps]: 75 lbs
Max squat in May [8 reps]: 140 lbs [plateclubholla]
65 lbs stronger
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty impressed with myself.
And I feel STRONG!
Which I LOVE!
But, I've realized that I need to re-introduce cardio only days
and also incorporate some circuit training too.
I'm stronger now, but you really can't see it.
So this week and next week I'm going to start
trying to run twice a week.
It's going to be tricky since I now play on three kickball teams
and two soccer teams, but no excuses right?!
Hopefully next week I'll be back with a positive report.
