Sweathogs, master class and Kacy inspires
Yesterday I worked on touch up painting some parts of the armoire, painting some planks and freshening up some old picture frames that are now not matching with the new motif. I still need to do some white washing, then gluing and then waxing the whole thing. The weather is supposed to cooperate so I should be able to be in the garage without turning into a sweathog.
Does anyone else watch Oprah's Master Class? Now I'm not an Oprah nut, matter of fact, she drives me a little crazy but I started recording it because she said Justin Timberlake was going to be on. Well, I've yet to see Justin pop up but a handful of other celebs have been on and I must say, the Mr and I love the series. The one last night was Vanessa Williams and she isn't someone I would've normally cared to watch one way or the other but after seeing Robin Roberts class, I learned to give any celeb a chance to "teach" us. I always like to learn more about people than what media speculation serves up. I think it's why we like CBS Sunday Morning too, you know...the one with the famous trumpet opening?
Yes, we're settling in to middle age quite nicely.
Did anyone catch American Ninja Warrior last night? I'm about to spoil it so look away...
Kacy Catanzaro is going to the big show! At 5' tall and 100 lbs, she beat so many dudes to get there and is the first woman to get this far! She is so inspiring and my eyes welled up when she hit that button. If you want to see her in the previous qualifier, watch here.
I must say my body is already thanking me for doing an active recovery week. My IT band on my left side was starting to really stiffen up so we headed over to Do Yoga With Me.com and did the IT band video. Oh my Lord, it hurt so bad at the beginning for both of us but by the end, I was feeling so much more loose and my IT band was happy. I will definitely be putting that one in regular rotation, particularly after we do a walk on asphalt which seems to irritate my legs the most the following day.
We're supposed to have cooler temps over the next few days so I'm thinking a walk in the park is in order for tonight's workout. I'm just a little relieved to be taking it easy this week.
What's your favorite throwback show? What's your favorite show that teaches you something?
