I Won't Break

I am going to fit in an after work 6 mile run in tonight. This afternoon I decided to work out via some Hulu videos. They have some Exercise TV workouts that I wanted to try.

I really hate doing squats and lunges. I know that they work quite a few muscles, but my knees are creaky. During one of the commercial breaks, I ran to take a glucosamine. I am not very good with taking pills everyday, but I guess doing this lower body workout and hearing noises come from my knees might make me remember.

I didn't think 20 minutes of squats was enough of a workout. I did the Upper Body immediately after. I had to make a few modifications because using 2 12 pound dumbbells was difficult/impossible in some spots. Mostly the Delt Flys and overhead triceps on one leg. I did like using one leg for some of the moves. Really worked the stability aspect of some of my muscles.

There was some jumping exercises that are mixed in at the end of a circuit. I always think that I SHOULD do low impact. Tap your foot side to side instead of jumping side to side. When I go high impact things jiggle and I sweat and I worry about my knees or whatever. But really, I think that it is an excuse. I CAN push myself to do higher impact workouts. I mean, I can slog on a treadmill for 2 hours, will a few squat jumps or jump to switch legs in a skater lunge break me? I am not a fragile little snowflake that will disintegrate if things are not ideal. I am not going to break. If I stay mindful on my form I CAN push myself and get the heart rate up a little higher.

I know that I may be a little behind on some things. But Hulu has Spirit Of The Marathon. I think I will watch it while I get ready for work. I have not seen it yet.

Have you ever been surprised at what your body can do?

What was your workout today?

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
