Is it Friday yet?  I need it to be Friday now for many reasons, but I’m mainly looking forward to a great girls night out my friend, Melissa, has planned for all of us.  I’m in desperate need of some stress relief this week, and a Friday night dinner, movie (Safe Haven), and drinks with the girls is just what I need.  Therefore, I’m counting down to Friday early this week…I started on Monday.

There is some stress relief for me…I got the results back from my main blood screening, and I’m still cancer free!  Wooohooo!  I’m just waiting on a few minor tests that deal with my hormone levels, but I’m not worried about their results.  Yea to good news!

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

Workout Wednesday 2

Today is an upper body pyramid workout that is broken up into supersets.  You will do 2 exercises per superset while increasing your weights used and decreasing your reps.  For an extra challenge you can do each exercise for 2 counts up and down, and I’m all about the challenges Winking smile.  Remember to stretch when you are done!

What is your Wednesday Workout?

Workout Wednesday and a Dysfunctional Relationship

Hi! My name is Andrea and I’m in a dysfunctional relationship…with my BlackBerry. We have been in this relationship for over 2 years and the last 6 months have been a strain. BlackBerry likes to act up/act out, and I sit back and take it all.  I will patiently remove the battery several times a day in attempt to regain internet access, and charge the battery several times a day.  Why you may ask?  Well, because BlackBerry has a keyboard.

Honestly, at this point there are too many problems between us.  When I took Blackberry into the cell store to see if there was anything I could do I was told no.  The college kid working was kind enough to give me a pat on the back and tell me I would be better off with the upgrade, and would have less stress in my life.

I have threatened to give up my BlackBerry many times at this point, but I always go back to it because of the keyboard. I don’t do well with typing on little touch screens, but at this point I have to end my dysfunctional relationship before one of us gets thrown out of a window (and I don’t want to have to pay for a window repair). Therefore, I’m finally breaking down and purchasing an IPhone this week. It is sad, but putting that in writing is so hard. It is going to be even harder making the switch. Wish me luck! Any IPhone owners out there? Are you happy with your relationship with your IPhone?

Every Accomplishment

Despite my break-up with BlackBerry life must go on, because it is Workout Wednesday!!!  Time to shape up that body, burn some fat, and tone those muscles.  Today I’m doing a full body workout that involves supersets.  Each superset consists of 3 exercises.  Do 2-3 sets of each super set before moving on to the next (each superset is in a blue rectangle)In between each superset is a short cardio section that equals 3 minutes.  I’ve included the links to new workout moves that you may be unsure of.  Proper form keeps you from injuries.  Remember to stretch!
