Workout Without Weights

Hello! I had a bad night of sleep last night because I thought I was going to be killed. Yeah, I was pretty convinced there was someone in the closet waiting for Ben to leave. I need to relax, or see a therapist. Maybe both.

Anyways, this morning I wanted to run, but knew I should give my legs a break after 2 solid days of good running. I’m trying this new thing called moderation – Don’t expect it to last very long and it doesn’t apply to baked goods or chocolate!

So, I decided to do some moves without weights for a workout. (Too many dub-yas.) Repeated 3 times:

Split squat, alt. 12 each side
Push ups, girl style 12
Hip raises, foot on coffee table, alt. 12
Donkey kicks 12
Plank 30 seconds





I also brought some fitness tools on this trip – but we’ll play with those later wlEmoticon smile30 Workout Without Weights IMG 3962 800x600 thumb Workout Without WeightsThen, I went on a 2 mile walk to Dunkin Donuts wlEmoticon smile30 Workout Without Weights Told ya I’d have it every day.

After breakfast Ben’s mom and I hit up the after Christmas sales.IMG 3954 800x600 thumb Workout Without Weights

I got this fun maxi dress. Maybe next year I’ll learn how to dress decent. Maybe. IMG 3968 600x800 thumb Workout Without Weights

Maybe I’ll also learn how to put together a decent looking lunch. IMG 3959 800x600 thumb Workout Without WeightsNah. I’m not that ambitious.

Maybe I’ll also learn how to turn down a piece of freshly baked blueberry banana bread. Okay, now I’m just being ridiculous.IMG 3967 800x600 thumb Workout Without Weights

I’m still working on my plans for 2012. Stay tuned online.

    The dress is cute, and it is great you get along with your MIL. I like you fit the DD fix into your workout :)

    I took V to a hotel waterpark and we were there for 4 hours. Does that count as a workout? I am exhausted.

    OOH and I NEED the recipe thankyouverymuch

    That dress is very cute! Can’t wait to hear about your goals for 2012, I’m still thinking about what mine will be. I am dreaming of doing my first full marathon and think that might just be one of my resolutions…I definitely consider your blog a big motivator for me to achieve that goal :)

    I love working out without weights! I don’t think I’m tall enough for a maxi dress, but you’re going to rock it. My fitness goals are to push past the 5k distance slowly so I don’t get injured.

    If my meals have to actually look pretty in the new year I’m screwed! I think the maxi dress is cute in one of those “I’d like it on someone else, just not myself” ways.
