Hey November!

With the holidays right around th corner I’ve really gotta crack down on this “diet” that I mentioned in my New Fitness Goals post. I plan on doing some serious eating during Thanksgiving with my family and Mike’s family for Christmas. No joke I think I gained 5 lbs during Christmas last year when we went to St. Louis to visit Mike’s parents! My future mother in law and I have this on-going joke that we only wear our stretch pants when we see each other because all we do is eat the entire time. I know you’ve heard me talk about MRod being an endless pit and eating whatever the hell he wants….well his pops is just like that! He eats a bowl of chocolate ice cream every night before bed and never gains one single pound!

It’s just not fair.

Can't wait for another white x-mas in STL!

Kicked off November with a kick ass workout:

Warm up: 5 flights of stairs

Superset x 3:

  •  20 jumps onto stepper with dumbbells
  •  On wobble board (or you can use a BOSU ball upside down) with barbel, half dead lift – squat – press x 10

Sitting down on stepper point toes outward, hold dumbbells on chest and stand up (3 x 15)

Superset x 3:

  •  10 Flights of stairs with 8 lb. dumbbells  (Last set of stairs I ran them as fast as I can and kicked the weights)
  •  Various ab exercises that involved arm exercises as well

Here’s some fun news for ya, I signed up for a new challenge! On December 3 I’ll be crawling through mud and jumping over fire with friends at The Warrior Dash!

Looks like fun to me 🙂
