So Happy It’s Thursday!

Any other Ellen DeGeneres fanatics out there? I adore her to pieces.  Last week on her show, instead of saying “T.G.I.F.”, she made up her own new acronym: “S.H.I.T.” – So Happy It’s Thursday!  What a clever one she is Winking smile.

Although today has been a great day, this post is actually going to be a recap from last night: the high school swim banquet.  First off, it’s really hard to go to a banquet with a pre-picked menu when you are vegan! I basically stuck to some salad and corn!

After a nice meal, season of pictures slideshow, and hour+ speech from the head coach Smile, the seniors were all recognized by their teammates and it was time to get down to some serious picture taking.  I am not going to lie, I haven’t seen these kiddos (who am I kidding, they’re bigger than me…) in a few weeks and I missed them!

Here are some of my favorites from the night!


That’s Rachel: One of my best friends and co-assistant coach… just figured you’d like to “meet” her (she’s in like every picture!)






I think the funny thing is that I look as old as all of them…if not younger. Oh man…hopefully this stays true and I continue to look younger than I am when I am old!  And I am going to miss all of the seniors and wish them the best in the future!!

PS I just did a killer at home workout.  I only have 5 and 3 pound weights, so I used combos of them!:

  • 10 minute biking warmup on my trainer
  • 3 supersets of 10 one arm curls and 10 tricep kickbacks per arm (using both 5 pound weights per arm)
  • 3 supersets of 15 lateral side raises and chest flies with hips elevated (using 5 and 3 pounds = 8 total per arm)
  • Huge core circuit to the tune of Zumba songs I have downloaded on my computer.  I lasted a whole song of continuous abs and back lifts, took a break, and did another song.  One rep per beat = dying.  Seriously try it.

Here’s a cool workout idea if you’re looking to squeeze workouts into an impossibly busy day.  Kind of hilarious but still could be useful especially with a bum hip like I have! A little is better than nothing Smile Check out Nano Workout!

And lastly, as I am already overly excited for this concert and it isn’t until June, here’s fun. and Panic at the Disco (which oddly is the exact combo + Weezer that I saw last summer!)

Enjoy your evening Smile

I am off to class for the first time this week…I had class last night but the banquet took 3.5 hours!!!!

    Looking young is the best! I like the idea that I’ll look 30 when I am really 50.

    Love the Panic!/Fun song!
