Think your foam roller is only good for working out those sore muscles or maybe you’re like me and you even use it pre-run?

We usually spend some time during the holidays at our cabin in Holopaw. Y’all probably know there is no electricity, no roads, and no real amenities. So exercise is not as easy as you’d think. I asked a friend of mine who happens to be a personal trainer and boot camp instructor what she would recommend for staying in shape while I’m in the remote confines of the cabin. She said I could stay in shape with one 5lb kettlebell or dumbbell and Turkish Get-ups.

What did you say

WHAT??

I cannot even begin to tell you what thoughts went through my warped mind. Then I googled it…and I found a video for runners that showed me how to do the Turkish Get-Up which is something I’ve been incorporating into my strength training and I’m sort of digging it.

 

She also suggested throwing a few resistance bands in my bag and I found this workout which I’ve done a few times and really like:

Diamond Candles! My prayers have been answered.

Best Idea Ever! I just put this on my Christmas list but damn, I wish I would have thought of this! I love these and they’d make a great gift for any woman on your list. Imagine getting a candle that not only smells awesome but has a RING inside of it! Spectacular.

If you want to know more about Diamond Candles, visit their site. It really is a great idea.

I love to listen to music when I’m working out don’t you? There are so many remixes for The Hanging Tree from Hunger Games. You’ve probably heard the most popular one on the radio but I like this one.

Lastly, because this happened in my town I was almost embarrassed to even put it out there, but consider it my PSA to all Facebook users. If you find yourself getting obsessed over the amount of friends you have, or if you get easily offended when someone doesn’t accept your friend request, get off Facebook and get some help.

I don’t care who you are, you do not want to be known as the Facebook Slapper! Feel free to click on the photo and read the story….

  1. I’ve heard of diamond candles but never knew they had rings in them. That changes everything! Haha
    I knew foam rolling helped reduce fat! I always roll more over my trouble areas, IE saddle bags, and it really seems to be helping. Or maybe it’s just the running and strength training… haha
    Plans for the rest of the weekend? Relax and stock up groceries for the week since my kids will be home…
    Our refrigerator is screaming right now..
