My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

What’s Up Wednesday

Hey!  What’s up?
what's up wednesday

How is everyone’s hump day going?  I’m looking forward to getting this work week finished.

Bon Jovi is playing 2 shows in Toronto this weekend…and I’m going to both of them!  Friday with my hubby and kids, and then Saturday with my girlfriends.  I think it will be 2 very different concert experiences, but I’m looking forward to both of them.

But, before it’s time for Bon Jovi, I’ve got 2 more days of work to get through and 2 CrossFit workouts.  Hopefully the next couple of workdays go smoothly and without too much stress.

I’m not sure I can say that about my upcoming CrossFit workouts.  Here’s what’s on tap for me the next couple of days:

100 Ring Dips!  Seriously!?!  I may not get that finished within the hour to even get to the Met Con part of the WOD!  I have been using a thin black band for my ring dips lately.  The other day for Elizabeth, we only had to do 21-15-9 and I had to break those up.  I have no idea how long or now many breaks I will need to take to do 100 of them.  Should be interesting!  I hope I survive to get to the rest of the fun.

Now as bad as 100 ring dips sound, tomorrow’s workout sounds even worse!  Check this out:

Yeah…that’s 100 friggin’ BURPEES!!!  I’m looking forward to the strength part of the WOD, but those burpees are going to suck…HUGE!  The love of Burpees is all over the web:

All I know for sure is that I will be rocking these bad boys Thursday night!

In other news, tonight is Jacko’s second drum lesson.  He has been practicing daily and has mastered the 3 “beats” his teacher taught him last week.  Hopefully he gets a few more things added to the practice list because all of us in the family are ready for some new “beats” to echo throughout the house!  I’ve even mastered the AC DC beat!

Well, my lunch break is over, and I should get back to work.  I will leave you with one last Burpee thing from the web:

What’s up with you?
Do you have a healthy hate for burpees too?
