Sunday Brain Dump

I was reminded today when looking at old comments that I used to love Sadie Nardini’s yoga routines. I just went through this one. I had to modify a decent amount due to being 7+ months pregnant (30 weeks on Tuesday) but it was great. I haven’t been making it to the gym for yoga (or anything really – I am quitting the gym but that is another story) so it was great to be back on the mat.

Little guy, which is what I call him in lieu of his proper name, which is in fact decided, but not publicly announced, goes quiet when I exercise but then wakes up and gets excited afterwards. He’s punching around right now. Probably telling me I should be putting that T-bone steak on the stove instead of blogging.

ZWOW!

Zuzana is back! I used to do her workouts when she was on Bodyrock but they got a new girl (who is not as good in my opinion).

She has been back for a few weeks but I only just got around to doing one of her workouts tonight. This workout was:

  • Split squat jumps (in lunge position, jump up and down X times on one leg; then switch to other side)
  • Single leg lunges with back foot on a chair (X times on one leg; then switch to the other side)
  • Superman pushups (do a pushup, but come down to the floor and do a superman, then another pushup, floor, superman, etc…)
  • Skaters!

It was a ponzi pyramid scheme where you go through the rounds and do 5 reps, then 10, then 15, then 10, and finally 5 again. I just did it along with Zuzana and if I finished ahead of her I did jumping jacks. This workout took me about 18.5 minutes.

Weekly Workouts + Inspiration

This is one of my favorite quotes.

“With malice towards none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right… let us strive… to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.”

–Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address, Saturday, March 4, 1865
