We started a yard sale with our neighbors yesterday and we have made $200 so far. WOOT WOOT!! I am thrilled with that and just thrilled to get rid of the stuff and make some extra money to boot. It is going on today and tomorrow so maybe we will get rid of some more stuff. What we don't get rid of is going somewhere but NOT back in our house.
My exercise has been almost non existent this week. Which is totally fine. Some times life really does get in the way and I have been working hard cleaning out and pricing and such to get ready for the yard sale so that means busy evenings and late nights. I have exercised one time and then I am going to the kettlebell class tomorrow from 12-3. So I have done some stuff and I by no means have been sitting on the couch this week at all. In fact, I just realized I didn't watch any TV at all this week. Not even Dancing with the Stars or American Idol. Speaking of American Idol the winner is from Arkansas about 2 hours from me. YEAH!!!!! Doing our state proud. His wife was homecoming queen at the University of Arkansas where I work 2 years ago too so I am even more thrilled with his win b/c of that.
Christina, kettlebells are these:
It is basically another form of strength training. Similar to a dumbell but shaped differently and you do different types of exercises with it. I have heard it can really stoke some calories b/c you do a lot of body weight type exercises but add in these weights and b/c of their shape and such you can do different things easier than you can with a dumbell. Just another way to make work outs fun and different. I will give you the details and my thoughs on it on Tuesday.
Have a great long weekend and don't pig out unless the food is worth it.
