I’m chilling with the blog posts this week as I gear up for all the great stuff I have lined up for you guys in 2011. (In my new spare time I’ve altered/refit/sewn three vintage dresses plus crafted myself a new skirt out of an old maternity dress OH YES! Take that shopping addiction! I get an even bigger rush from remaking ugly clothes into hot ones! Who knew? Ok, you guys did since a ton of you told me to get a hobby so, you know, you were right. Thank you!) But I had to pop in to share with you Gym Buddy Allison’s surprise workout.
You like how Allison yells at me for not working out when she’s the one standing there holding the camera?! (Click through to see the video if you are reading this via e-mail or a reader. It’s 20 seconds of pure awesome! Sorry it’s so small though – we only had Allison’s iPhone.)
And then girlfriend whipped this little wonder out of her gym purse as a surprise addendum to our workout:
TWISTER! (That’s her on top and me underneath – weirdly we picked that day to wear nearly identical outfits.) Also, you see all those windows up there? That’s the gym floor and they go all the way around. The ones on the bottom are the childcare. Suffice it to say, we were the live entertainment for the day.
See? We were having so much fun that I can’t even remember which one of us won! Which probably means it was her – my memory is remarkably good when it comes my competitiveness!
When’s the last time you played Twister? It’s a surprisingly good burn (as evidenced by how red and sweaty my face is). Also, this may be my favorite picture of Krista (very bottom) EVER.
But here’s the real money shot! You know it’s a great workout when you spend it nose to tail with two of your best girlfriends. (Yes, that’s my skirtcapri – clad heinie at the top! Thank you Allison SO MUCH for taking this picture. Really. I’ll remember this the next time I’m the one holding the camera!) Thank heavens none of us had beans for breakfast.
What are you doing to playout during this winter break? Kinect Dance/ Dance Dance Revolution? Skiing? Synchronized swimming?? When’s the last time you played Twister?
PS. I’m in SHAPE magazine’s January issue (out now!) in their books to read section! There’s a picture and everything!! It’s also on shelves now in Borders and Barnes and Noble. Thank you to all of you who wrote to tell me you saw it. I squeeeeed every time:) And a HUGE thank you to all of you who wrote a review on Amazon! I got a little teary reading them all!
