I’m just waiting for loving husband to come home so we can have dinner.

Tonight’s meal is salmon, roasted veggies and a spinach salad, and… if he eats his salad tonight this will be 3 nights in a row that he has eaten green veggies!

What??!!

Who is this man, and what the f*ck did he do to my husband?

Hahaha, seriously though.

This is a man who thinks M&M’s are a great snack option (cause they are vegetarian, he claims), and that chocolate cake is perfectly fine as an appetizer.

But, I won’t get too excited just yet. Cause technically we haven’t had dinner yet, so technically he hasn’t eaten his salad yet.

I’ll keep ya posted.

TOOLS NEEDED

A pair of 3 or 5lb dumbbells (FYI: don’t get used to that, next workout we go heavy!)

Loving husband is back in the house!

I managed to talk him into working out with me again.

It’s been about a year since he joined me on a YouTube workout. Which, coincidentally, was the last time he worked out too.

I know! How did we ever fall in love?

In his defence he is old, his job is very physical and he eats a lot of crap.

Add all those together and you get a guy who has very little umph on his day’s off.

Good news, though, he recently cut out sugar from his diet and I am very proud of him.

No chocolate, no Coca Cola, no candy bars, no ketchup, no M&M’s, and as he likes to say “no to anything I actually like”.

I am also very proud that our relationship survived the first week on his new diet.

Yeah us!

At the time of writing this blog it is 13 days before Christmas and I just bought our Christmas decoration.

Christmas-Fitness-with-PJ

Yup. A bottle of Carolan’s is our decoration.

Why, you wonder? Well, it’s the only decoration I feel like buying every year.

You see, we don’t own one decoration.

Nada. Nothing.

We had a tree about 20 years ago, when we first got married, but I lost enthusiasm for the whole “decorating” for the holidays after a couple of years and gave away all our ornaments (which were hand-me-downs anyways – cause I was too cheap to buy anything and friends of ours took pity on us and gave us all of their old decorations).

Ever since I gave away the ornaments I haven’t bothered to replace them.

It’s not cause I hate Christmas, either. It’s just simply I don’t want to add anymore stuff to do to my agenda in December.

If I need to get lit up for the holidays I will do so in other ways 🙂

Fitness Christmas Gift Suggestions

A Studio membership. HAHAHAHAHA. I know, total blatant self-promotion. But… we do rock.

Foam roller – so your loved one can save some money on a massage therapist. I dig this one .

15-Minute Awesome Abs

 

If you need an ab workout that is quick and to the point (ie. makes your abs burn), then you are gonna LOVE this 15-minute ab workout.

 

Using a series of abdominal moves that target all the muscles of the mid-section, with higher-intensity ab exercises in-between, you are left with a workout that delivers.

 

My Top 25 Fitness Quotes

 

1. The best ab exercise is 5 sets of stop eating so much crap.

 

2. You don’t get the ass you want by sitting on it.

12. The only time you’re allowed to get low in your life is during your squat.

 

13. Your legs are not giving out. Your head is giving up.

 

14. Sweat. Smile. Repeat.

 

15. Fitness is like a relationship, you can’t cheat and expect it to work.

 

16. The body achieves what the mind believes.

 

17. In two weeks, you’ll feel it. In four weeks, you’ll see it. In eight weeks, you’ll hear it.

 

18. The only BS I need in my life is breakfast and squats.

 

19. Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

 

20. The questions isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

 

21. Don’t watch the clock.; do what it does. Keep going.

While writing this blog I had my two trusty companions right beside me.

Bella and my afternoon kombucha.

Poor Bella hasn’t been feeling good this week though. She’s hasn’t been able to keep her food down.

Which is not like her.

She has thrown up pretty much everywhere. Living room, dining room, bedroom and my slipper (true story).

She’s even christened the new Studio.

This morning, while teaching my early morning class, she walked into the middle of the gym during our warm-up, threw up and then walked out.

Alrighty then. Now there’s a GREAT way to start a class.

Thankfully my crew have a fab sense of humour and it was all giggles and laughs.

However, poor Bell’s is not feeling her normal self.

Here’s hoping that a couple of days of special food from the vet will have her back to her old non-throwing-up self.

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy and light dumbbells

Workout best for: home or gym

Level: beginner – advanced
