throw them out!

Before I get to what I meant by my title to this blog, I have to start off on a positive note cause I want to keep my blog happy and positive, BUT and this is a big but, if something irks me, be prepared to read about it. Now, onto my blog....

It truly is a beautiful day. Its not too humid for me here in NC today, thank God! I woke up this morning at 5am , staying faithful to my workout plan and was sore from the bicep/triceps/shoulder day I had yesterday at the gym, so I thought today would be a great day to have a session with my bf Tread Mill for 20 minutes and then jump on his friend Elli Ptical (he's French, don't mind the weird name, LOL!) for 20 minutes. So that's exactly what I did. I always feel a little guilty if I don't do SOMETHING ab related, so I climbed up on the beautiful hanging bar and proceeded to do 3 sets of 15, hanging leg raises. This is where my tip of the day comes in: TRY HANGING LEG RAISES! I don't recommend them without lifting gloves just because they hurt my hands and if you are a girl reading this, it is not sexy to have callused hands, unless that is what your man goes for :D. It will get rid of that pooch that all of us girls hate and can't get rid of and they will also strengthen your whole core. I was introduced to these via Oxygen magazine (aka, the fitness guru's bible! (besides the regular Holy Bible of course!) ). Try them, if you stick to them, you'll see those results fast. They are 1 of the only exercises that gets my lower tummy flat. So after the gym, I came back to the hotel, showered, fixed N his breakfast, fixed my egg whites w/spinach with a side of wheat multi-grain toast and a 1 tablespoon of natural organic PB, and sat myself down in front of the TV. Now here comes my "throw them out" explanation. I never watch Fox News (I just heard my mom gasp all the way over here), and what do you think they were talking about? Some terrorist support system that was being organized in Willow Springs, NC. Right around my neck of the woods! If you would like to read the stupid idiotic man's story, click here. I am sorry, but I'm not sorry. If you want to support terrorists and aid their efforts and even fight with them and participate in their despicable activity, then please...get the heck out of my country! N fought for this man's right to have all of the weapons he has in his house and THIS is how he is using that freedom?! It just irritates the heck out of me when my husband served his country for 4 years and did his time over in the sandbox, and this happens. A total crock in my opinion.

So there you have it, your workout tip of the day and a little venting comliments of me ha ha. I promise to be back with a happier post tomorrow :D Have a great day everyone!! 4 days till this California girl is back on the west coast where she belongs!
