Happy Thanksgiving! Or (Depending on where you live) Happy Thursday!

by Charlotte on November 22, 2012 · 25 comments

I’m taking this long weekend to hang with my family, read a lot of books and eat some (okay, a lot) of my mom’s famous raspberry pretzel Jell-O salad (don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it!). I hope that wherever you are you are having a glorious Thanksgiving or at least an exceptional Thursday:) Because I am SO thankful for you guys! I’ve said it before but I have the smartest, kindest, most helpful commenters/readers on the Internet. You guys do more good – both for me and for each other – than you know and I feel privileged to know you! I take it as a great compliment that you take your valuable time to read my stuff and every day I pray that I can live up to that!

In the meantime, here’s a taste of what’s coming next week!

FLASHING! in the gym! (Thank you Gym Buddy Jeni for the idea!)

Actually it’s a list (with hilariously awful photos like these) of the most embarrassing workout moves that will make your muscles burn as much as your cheeks!

And, introducing December’s Great Fitness Experiment: Proprioceptive Exercises! This is seriously some of the coolest stuff I’ve tried in a long time!

And not only do you get to do the whole circus-elephant-on-a-ball trick but it’s a killer workout – with moves I PROMISE you’ve never seen before! SO FUN!!!

Love you guys!!

“Flashing” is a great name for an exercise. I’m pretty sure I know exactly what you’re doing just from the title, even though I’ve never seen it.

No shopping for me; I’m off to work in half an hour, then I’ll be diving into turkey leftovers for lunch.

Have a great weekend!

Have a great Thanksgiving Charlotte! And my Thursday was pretty good! :)

Happy Thanksgiving. I’m greatful that I have 2 happy healthy little boys who got to celebrate with their nieces. My 5 year old is thankful for “lollies” !

Hope your thanksgiving was wonderful! We discovered a great new invention: the restaurant. No toiling, no oversized portions and multiple plate refilling, no dishes, and no leftovers, which is either good or bad depending on self-restrating. (Me, I got none).

Looks like you have some GREAT stuff coming up and I can’t wait!!


Charlotte November 27, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Buwhaha – this totally made me LOL. Reading your book now:)


Irene November 23, 2012 at 11:26 am

I LOVE that workout top! Where is it from? I must have it!


Charlotte November 27, 2012 at 10:26 pm

JC Penney, baby!


Geosomin November 23, 2012 at 11:29 am

Happy thanksgiving Charlotte. Hope you have a nice weekend with the family :)

Happy thanksgiving! Enjoy your pretzel, jello salad!!

I’m looking forward to reading about the Proprioceptive exercises. Proprioception is one of my fave words (yes, I realize how weird I am).

Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving with your family!


Charlotte November 27, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Not weird in my book! I love that word too:) Even more since spell check doesn’t recognize it…

Sadly, I ruined my strawberry-pretzel salad by forgetting to add sugar to the crust. It still tasted good, but was just not quite the same goodness. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I really enjoy your blog.

is that a bump-it in your hair?? :)


Charlotte November 27, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Nope! I’m actually just really really good at fluffing:) I have this mattifying powder called “dust in” – it’s a miracle for girls with fine hair like me! That and a back comb…
