Last Workout of 2014 – BOOYAH!

Happy New Year’s Eve! We made it!!! As 2014 comes to a close, there’s still time to squeeze one last workout in to send off 2014 with a BANG! This morning, I got my butt sufficiently kicked by doing NYE Challenges in my small group class: stacking boxes up to see how high you can jump, pushing your partner on the sled (+120lbs already on the sled), sprints for time, as many burpees as you can in one minute (and then beat your time), tug of war – it was a super fun morning! I highly encourage all of you to go out there and see what you’ve got today. I was totally psyched out by how high the box was for box jumps (dude, it was HIGH), but I closed my eyes and pictured my feet landing on the box, and I DID IT! It’s really the little things in life. I think we are all capable of so much more than we realize or give ourselves credit for, if only we can get out of our heads and push ourselves. Anywho, yesterday my two gym buddies plus myself plus one of their roomies did an epic workout based on our trainer’s previous small group class. Our trainer Sarah kicks our butt, makes us laugh, and encourages us every step of the way. We are so fortunate to work with her. She’s the best (for real). I thought this adaption of her routine would be the perfect last workout of 2014, because we were FEEEEELIN’ ITTTTT afterwards. Plus some Bubbles and Booyah twists. πŸ˜‰

Hi! That’s my butt. I was semi-embarrassed to post this (I didn’t realize when S was taking the photo that it would be like L’S BUTTΒ  ….everyone else) but then I thought “Yo, who cares?! Everyone has a butt. Whatev.” Here we are doing our butt-kicking routine πŸ˜€

Whew! I am pretty sore today, and feeling like I sufficiently kicked 2014’s butt. Some great things happened – my nephew was born (and continues to be the most amazing baby ever), I did my first half marathon (in under two hours and kicked ASS), I got a promotion (woo woo!) and made some amazing new friends (and saw some fabulous old ones). I got to travel to new states (New Mexico and Tennessee!) and try some new things (food, physical challenges, experiences). Ah yes, and MY baby was born – Bubbles and Booyah! – where I got to meet all of you fabulous folks. You guys make my day with your comments and feedback, frequently cracking me up, giving great input and generally being the most amazing friends and readers on the planet. I feel so lucky to share a little space of the world with you. Let’s see what 2015 brings. I am pretty stoked on it. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

With that, I’ll leave you with some fun(ny) things to check out – courtesy of my sister:
