I love my foam roller. Big puffy heart love it. This week, we started a body building phase and the DOMS from that have had me making mad love to my roller. And my tennis ball. My goodness it’s fabulous.
As I mentioned before, I’m doing 3 workouts per week for this phase (and talk about picking the best phase to do it!!) so I had my first couple on Tuesday and yesterday. I deadlifted with two kettlebells for the first time. It was awesome. Hard, but awesome. I couldn’t figure out what about it was so hard until later after my workout when I realized that I was deadlifting over 100lbs. I would have done an epic flex-down but my arms were so tired/sore from the workout overall, I couldn’t lift them past my waist. Maybe next week.
We’re also starting a fundraiser to help raise funds to send Romanian orphans to camp. I think this is a fabulous initiative and I’m so happy to be taking part in the efforts. Unfortunately, my fundraising skills are not very good so this will be a test in my creativity. I think the best part of this challenge is that as fundraisers, we will be doing burpees for dollars. In other words, for every dollar I raise, I do one burpee. So imagine the fun I would have if I raised a few hundred dollars. Yep…a few hundred burpees. This is a great opportunity for anyone I’ve ever annoyed to death to get complete and full retribution against me. I imagine my parents will be well on board for this. Hopefully a lot of you will be as well.
I’ll post a bit more about this challenge next week. If you can’t wait that long, check out this summary and watch the video from last year’s event. If you’re dying to support me and give me some burpees to do (and I know you are), you can donate a few dollars here. Just let me know via email (stephanie <at> fitmomintraining <dot> com) or in the comments below so I can track donations and burpees.
Next week I’ll post about my goals for this phase.
