I have exciting news for you.
Boys Meets World is gracing our TVs again with its presence (and the good news is that we once again have a working TV. I was glad for the peace and quiet, but now have to seriously get caught up on The Voice). I was a little scary excited when I found out. I was Topanga. Just in the same way that JTT was my real-life boyfriend. Anywayyyyyy…
Reading that little news blip gave me a memory lane stroll of that special time in my life (also known as TGIF Friday nights)
and after reminiscing of how I once really wanted to grow up to have an apartment like the cast of Friends, my bedazzler, and Cinnamon Pop Tarts,
I got to thinking of how certain physical activities become SO much more challenging as we age. Remember jump roping and playing skip-it for hours? Like it was no big deal. Now, 2 solid minutes of jump roping and my heart rate is through the roof, but…. I think I could still rock a skip-it.
Well, it’s funny how I sometimes think I can still do the things I used to. A toe touch after a looong hiatus and I was walking like a cowgirl for a week, and then there was last night when I thought I could do scorpion pose even though it had been over a year.
The entire story is in the video below, along with a killer new ab burner:
It’s called the “Six Pack in a Sweater” ab burner, because it really is more shocking to have ripped abs under all of your winter gear when everything gets a little bit colder, and more often than not, a little fluffier, during the holiday season. Here’s the thing, though: maintaining fitness and health goals all year (which is why it’s so important to have a plan that doesn’t make you feel overworked or deprived) makes it so much easier to take things up a tiny notch when the weather gets warmer. Aim to maintain, and remember that visible abs come from cardio and clean eats.
Here’s a (similar) text version for my friends who are at work right now:
I hope you love it- please leave a comment to let me know how it goes!
For even more fun, use it as a grand finale to the November Workout
Have a great day <3
Something to talk about: What’s something that you used to do when you were younger that probably would be tough now? For me, flipping off the bars comes to mind.. I would probably land on my face.
Something to do: Be sure to check out the huge online bake sale here on the blog tomorrow am for Sandy relief! Anne is also hosting a fundraiser which ends today
