Makeshift Dip Station and Free Timers

Another Tuesday. Another day of BodyRocking. Today’s Fat Burning Poker Face Workout was a 20-minute max reps challenge. Here are my scores, which are kind of wimpy – I don’t think I pushed myself enough in the beginning because you can see my reps did not decrease much as I went through. I was still beat at the end:

Exercise Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4
Surfer 10 7 8 7
Round Kick Crunch (Left) 14 14 14 14
Round Kick Crunch (Right) 14 14 14 14
1-2-3 Pushup 12 12 12 10
NINJA! 5 5 5 5

I don’t mean to be obsessing over these workouts, but hey, I am, in fact, obsessed. They are short and effective and, as my husband will tell you, efficiency and optimization are always, always, on my mind. Whether it’s minimizing the amount of time we have to wait at stop lights while walking or maximizing utils, I am an optimization machine. (I was an econ and math major in college.)

Ah, yes, today’s title:

Makeshift Dip Station

It’s 2 chairs (just dining chairs) with folded linens over the tops (I started without but it hurt my hands). It is a little bit short for me but I made sure that I didn’t hunch and instead just bent my knees when going to grab the backs of the chairs for the air crunch. I don’t know what the pair of scissors is doing there. Bobby must have used them last night for something.

Free Timers

I already told you that I use this one, but I also found two other options while Googling this morning:

I feel like I am being sporadic in my posting but I’m going to just go with it. Don’t forget:

  • Chocolate challenge – I will check back in tomorrow on this (1 week later) – it’s a good update.
  • Manna Bread Giveaway – ends Thursday. There are not a ton of entries so you have a decent chance of winning, and that bread is awesome.

I think that’s it. I’m off to shower and start my day.

    Cracking up b/c CD was a math/econ major, and he does the exact same thing! He makes everything he does as efficient as possible, and I am the exact opposite – haha, totally need that boy in my life!

    Congrats Julia! :)

    Very disappointing. I thought I was going to be reading about food dips – mushroom dip, onion dip, maybe a little crab dip – while eating my ham and cheese sandwich. Oh well.
