What I'm Reading This Week 2016 #7

Well, I wish I could say I'm looking forward to stretching day but since we threw snowshoeing in there on Monday, we don't get a stretch day this week.  I feel like my body is bah-roh-ho-ken, yo!  I'm starting to wonder if the Mr looked ahead to this week and tripped himself on purpose to get out of them.

But enough of my conspiracy theories, lets get to...

5 Most Efficient Kettlebell Exercises For Fat Loss  (I miss kettlebells!)

5 Ways to Feel Like a Kid Again (Even if You're an Old Grouch)  (Ahem)

10 Iconic Movie Sounds (and how they were made)  (Pretty cool stuff!)

Are You Vitamin D Deficient?  (My gynie always said if you live above the Mason Dixon line you need it in the winter for sure.  Still didn't take any.)

How OK Go Made That Amazing Zero-G Video  (Courtesy of the Mr)

Ronda Rousey Shockingly Shares How She Thought About Killing Herself After the UFC Defeat  (So sad, and thankful she didn't follow through)

The 5 Biggest Regrets People Have Before They Die  (Learn from what they missed out on)

Use Resistance Bands for Travel-Friendly Workouts  (I know we do...when we remember to take them out of the suitcase)

4 Keys to Fat Loss More Helpful Than "Eat Less and Move More"  (Only people who have never had to work for every pound spout that crap.  These are good areas to look at and I REALLY need more sleep.)

I Have It All—so Why Am I Not Happy?  (All good points to ponder)

Popular heartburn drugs linked to risk of dementia  (Please read if you or someone you know takes these!)

See What Muscles You're Stretching with These Pictures    (You could make a good stretching routine off of these if you wanted to)

Adele Is The Worst Jamba Juice Customer Of All Time In Ultimate 'Ellen' Prank  (I don't know if I'd say ultimate because nothing is better than "Dennis Quaid is heeeyah!" but pretty funny)

Fitness Blender's Puppy Workout  (This is the cutest thing ever)

Dave Grohl Brings Down the House at Lionel Richie Tribute with Special Performance of 'You Are'  (Dave Grohl is my spirit animal.  I don't know whether I want to hang out with him or kiss him long and hard on the mouth)

For Sleepy Hollow Ichabbie shippers  (Seriously, the editing in this is some of the best I've ever seen in my life.  If you didn't ship them before, you'll want to after watching this!  Well except me because that's the kiss of death for a show and they've got enough problems)

What It's Like To Be On Fixer Upper  (I always wondered about the furniture)

Orphaned sea otter pup finds home at Shedd Aquarium  (OH.  MY.  LORD.  Beware, that video will make your heart explode with squee)

Again, we have no real plans this weekend.  I take that back, we're trying a new-ish restaurant tomorrow night so that'll be nice since we tend to stick with the same ol' places 90% of the time.  I know...big excitment...jealous?

  1. This has to have been one of the most boring weeks ever. Not that I'm complaining too much, mind you. Truly TGIF!

  2. The boy's school play, one performance each day. Plus my folks will be here. So a busy weekend, but not necessarily a productive one. It will be nice.

  3. Loved the article on Fixer Upper - I'm a huge fan. Thanks and have a great weekend!

  4. I just got back from visiting my uncle and survived the treacherous winds. You know it's bad when they post signs up and down the interstates about wind advisories. I hot hit with a hailstorm of sand and tiny rocks from somewhere that was a bit nerve wracking.

    Tomorrow I'm going out to visit a friend who's in town from NC and she is making breakfast and then we are doing some window shopping in the downtown district where she lives. Sunday I'll be watching the outdoor game for hockey as well as Daytona. But I'll be going to the Y first to workout. I'll email you the details of that adventure... a hoot!

  5. Taxes, vacation planning and long walks with pup pup
