Snow and Ice are my Bitch...

So check this out...some genius people invented a contraption that you can put on your shoes that enable you to walk through slippery snow and ice.  They are the greatest thing invented for winter (besides coats and mittens).  I walked workout dog today without busting my face on the sidewalk! 

-Note...even if I had taken a tumble on the ice I probably would not have felt it because my face was completely numb...yeah, it's that cold here.  I couldn't feel my face for about 10 min. after I got back inside...If you ever wanted to get a facial piercing I would highly suggest coming to Hanover and walking outside for five minutes before you get it (you wouldn't feel a thing).

Here's a pic of the YakTrax...

 I also had a very interesting workout this morning.  Workout mom took me to a class called "Body Combat"... I don't know what I was expecting but it was definitely not this...

We walked in to the gym and there were strobe lights, a smoke machine, a temporary tattoo station and lots of camo.  There were probably around 75 people there to take the class...most of whom had NO idea what they were getting themselves into (I was DEFINITELY in that group).  The class itself was hard...and very confusing.  I'm certainly not one for choreographed "moves" so let's just say that I was at least 2-3 steps behind for the entire class.   At one point CASCADA came on the speakers so I just jumped around and danced by myself...much to the amusement of the people who turned out to watch from the balcony.

I'm sure I will be immobile tomorrow, so let's hope that no one tries to mess with me because I'll be too sore to defend myself...I would be the easiest kidnap ever.

Baby it's cold outside....

Wow today is chilly...currently it is 10(!) outside. Poor workout dog had to wait until I shoveled her a place outside to use the restroom.

As per usual on chilly days, I will be working out inside today...something that I am getting VERY tired of...spring weather where are you! Anyways...here is my workout for today (in case anyone wants a good Friday workout)

Warm-up...Run 1 mile on treadmill...level 6.5

1. Lunges: alternate legs while simultaneously doing bicep curls (20 total, should be ten each leg/arm)...3 sets
2. Dips...using a machine that allows for resistance adjustment (do 12-15 reps)
3.Take a minute break in between sets
4. Squats (12 with a 45 lb weight)
5. Hamstring/lower back: hold on to bar with feet about shoulder width apart and slowly bend down (while keeping legs slightly bent) and bring bar back up to standing...(bar should go from your waist to your feet and back, no higher)
6. Take a minute break in between sets (3 sets of each exercise)

1. Bicep curls (done with lunges)
2. Triceps (done with lunges)
3. Overhead press...take dumbells and push above head (12 reps)
