I’ve started this post about 5 times, and each time I barely type a sentence or two and I have to do something else.. With friends staying with us Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights- it has been a whirlwind and our schedules have been a bit different than usual. Now that we have the house back to ourselves, I’ve caught up on things and I can finally sit down and get this post out!

Gina’s Tabata Thursday
Today’s workout was a KILLER.. it took me about 45 minutes to complete everything and I needed a towel nearby the entire time.. My shoulders hurt already.. Who knew that a medicine ball could be so much fun? :)
I’ve had the medicine ball for 2 days and I already have a funny story for ya.. I posted this picture on my Facebook- of which I have students as “friends” and about 5 minutes after posting it I received multiple messages begging me please DO NOT to bring it to class (mind you I teach a yoga class on Thursday, ha) In case you didn’t know, my students think I’m really mean for pushing them so much- Hey, isn’t that what you come here for? :)
WARNING! TMI coming your way.. About the WSC (weighted sit-up challenge)- I basically have road rash at the very top of my butt crack.. Seriously- I’m going to go on a limb here and say that the sit-ups aren’t the real challenge.. it’s trying not to wince every time you sit-up!
A+D has been a lifesaver.. lol
I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.. Not only do they fit me better and they were $7! I had to stop myself from buying one in every color.. Sometimes being smaller has its advantages :)
Food has been pretty low maintenance these days
Except for this Pina Colada post-workout smoothie from last months Oxygen
It was TOTALLY worth the work..
Speaking of work.. I’ve been hard at it
That’s over 300 terms on flashcards.. I scheduled my test date this week.. Aug 24th- just two weeks from today.. I’ve been working really hard and I’m hoping it will pay off :)
I leave you with a fond farewell from my boys
We are out of here!
