New Adventures of Old Christine

All the girls were in spin class this morning, and I was at home making a breakfast casserole.  It made me sad.  It was too dark to run, so I turned on the Wii and did the Active workout.  Since I've done six workouts in twenty days, it let me know that I would not be able to complete the thirty day challenge in thirty days.  Whatever.  I passed my thirty day challenge several times already.  The only thing I didn't like was these kick backs on the track.   You walk and kick your feet back and kick your butt.  This was fine until you had to do them fast.  I don't really know how it is supposed to be possible.  I did what I could but the screen kept telling me I was "Too Slow"  I KNOW ALREADY!!!!

The casserole was a hit, but I ate too much of it.  But I did have watermelon for dessert rather than the carrot cake that was brought in during lunch.  I knew I'd have to work harder than my thirty minute wii workout.  When I got home, my husband had taken the kiddos out to the trail to throw a casting net out to catch some fish, so after I got dressed I went out there to meet them.  When we were coming back to the house, my husband told me I should run up the hill.  "Run!" he said; so I did.  Well I tried.  It was kind of steep.

Next, I headed for the rec center to do the circuit training program that was long overdue.  I started with a five minute warm up on the bike before heading for the weights.  My arms are on fire right now, so I guess I got it right.  It took me a little under thirty minutes to run through the two sets of fifteen reps.  The worst was the push ups, but they are getting easier. 

Then it was time for cardio.  They have a spin bike in the weight room with a screen on it.  I've never used it before, but I thought it would be a good time to try it.  There were three options: ride with your music, spin videos and build your workout.  I chose a thirty minute workout and spin videos. It brought up a trainer who instructed me on speeds and tension and all that stuff.  He did not make me do jumps or anything like that, and he certainly didn't have cool playlists like Matt.  He also had this cheesy screen behind him that could make you dizzy if you looked at it too much. 

So the title of this entry has nothing to do with anything, except that I'm watching it now.  I've never really seen it before and it is hilarious!  And it's really late, and I need to go to sleep, but it's funny and I can't stop watching.  Must....stop....watching.....
