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