|My work buddy!|
Ok, Annette, I'm writing on my blog again. I told Mom I can't possibly think of anything to write everyday, but then sometime presents itself.
I told you yesterday how I was doing this new workout in my quest to lose my "12 Cookies of Christmas" pounds. So, today the pain is even worse. But, it's located in one area, my quads (that's the front of your thigh's right?). I cannot tell you the pain involved in going up or down a step and let's just say a trip to the bathroom is not fun either, too much?? So, today, it is near 70 here, we thought we'd take the dogs for a walk and I thought, what a good way to "loosen" up before the "hell's joke" workout. Well, all was well until.................the squirrel. I had Max and Baxter on the leash, although they are not little dogs, are quite muscular. I was dragged, hobbling along, trying to keep up and, not fall on the muddy path. Mom was laughing hysterically! A thought occurred to me..................why didn't I just let go?
So, I did get day three in of the "hell's joke" workout after the "leisurely" walk and the only thing that keeps me going is 1. I'm the most stubborn person in the world and it will not beat me and 2. I did sense that it was a little easier today. Here's the "hell's joke" workout (and that's my name for it)
1. 100 crunches
2. 90 jumping jacks
3. 80 lunges
4. 70 squats
5. 60 seconds running in place
6. 50 second plank
7. 40 jumping jacks
8. 30 squats
9. 20 high knee lifts
10. 10 push ups
It's all bad, not going to lie to you! I am not in shape, but I can walk for a bit and do my elyptical for a 30 minute stretch but this workout forces you to use muscles you haven't seen in years. You are suppose to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks. Frankly I don't believe them, but, what can it hurt.......besides my quads!!
So, I thought I'd share a picture of my buddy. Baxter loves to go to work with me everyday. All I have to say is "let's go to the shop" and he's ready. His spot is right on top of the couch. I don't have any new stuff to show you, but, right now we are working on getting the 5 new designs hooked up, I am also hooking the Crow pocket purse and another flag purse that will be available in patterns. We got in 8 new wools today and Mom has been dyeing up a storm so keep checking back to see all the new stuff. Next week we will be having a January Funk Sale. 10% off all patterns, kits and wool. You can really save some money so think about what you "need".
That's it for now. I hope I brought a smile to your face describing my little leisurely walk...
Until next time....
