Workout Wednesdays ~ Feb 10, 2016

To say I celebrated to the fullest  extent for Super Bowl would probably be an understatement.

Hubby and I made a trip to the store for some goodies … This being lots of junk food, beer, wine, and some moonshine soaked cherries.

Now if you’ve never indulged in these puppies, well may I highly recommend that you need not consume more than 10 or you will be passed out on the bathroom floor during the half time show of the Super Bowl which was ok because apparently I didn’t miss much.  I have never been a huge fan of BeyoncΓ© anyway.

How Coldplay got mixed in there I don’t know.

The rest of the container of said cherries sits in the refrigerator and I had to move them behind a bunch of various other items so as not to see them upon opening the fridge.  They shall probably stay there until summertime ….4th of July perhaps.

Anywho…needless to say I celebrated before, during, and after the fabulous event, and after having a short nap on my bathroom floor I was good to go until 2am.

And now let’s bring on Monday…I didn’t move much.  Netflix nanny (Bumbis Mom term that I must steal) was in charge.  There was no working out except lifting the remote and the large cup of water next to my bed.

But I worked out hard last week and stuck to my guns and the hard work paid off because I not only lost 2 more pounds but I reached my 90,000 steps, in one week, goal!  I even passed it by 6,000 steps!  So now my next goal is to accomplish 100,000 in a week.

I am back on track and made it to the gym twice yesterday.  My #activitytrackerchallenge is well on its way and there’s some great healthy competition going on.  Can’t wait to see who the winner will be!

  1. Congrats on your team’s big win. Hope you are recovering from the big day, I decided I need to be more invested in the game next time and maybe I won’t drink so much. LOL Now its time to get back on track. Nice job on your fitness goals. I am really struggling getting in a routine, I hate winter time I just want to hibernate.

  2. Moonshine cherries!? Sounds amazing!

    The Broncos won so a celebration must be had. If my team ever went again (it’s been 16 years and they lost anyway) I would probably end up spending a little time on the bathroom floor too. Lol.

    This #activitytrackerchallenge has been motivating. My job involves going to beaches and/or parks once a week to tour projects and properties and today was that day so I opted to walk instead of jumping on a golf cart.

  3. There’s only one thing cooler than the other side of the pillow, and that’s the bathroom floor! It’s also an excellent alcohol wick! Draws it right out! BTW, I don’t know how Coldplay got mixed in there either. I’ve never thought of them as an extravaganza band, but that’s what the Super Bowl halftime show has become. You got 15 minutes kids. How many dancers in your show? None? Don’t worry, we’ll find you some.

  4. I know everyone else is commenting on the moonshine cherries, but I can’t resist. This is fascinating! I am filing this info away for summer. Then I will research this more thoroughly. Enjoy the break from Fitbit fanaticism, especially after your rocking week! I’ve found taking the Fitbit off entirely helps me feel less guilty. Of course I have no steps for today! Wink wink.

    1. I am addicted to my Fitbit! I even started an #activitytrackerchallenge between a few blogging friends. Of course I’m probably going to lose this week because I bought a new phone and my stuff didn’t transfer over so I’m missing a day and 1/2 worth of steps. Oh well there’s always the next one ;). You should add me…its under! Nothing like some challenge to keep you motivated! And yes the moonshine cherries and blueberries are tasty but SUPER potent!


      1. I have to pass for now. #1 – I don’t have any Fitbit friends. It’s great because every week I’m the steps winner! #2 – I’m 7 months pregnant (I’m totally playing the preggo card here) so steps are slower, fewer, and more waddle-like. #3 – My Fitbit is acting up and hasn’t synced in 3 weeks (a Charge HR glitch. Fitbit says they’re aware and working on it.) BUT, after #2 and 3 get sorted out, I may just take you up on it. Thank you for the offer, I could use the challenge to get back into post-baby form.

  5. Yay I’m excited to be linking up this week, I am so behind in blogging since the holidays. I hope I can start back on a regular basis. Thanks for hosting. And if I get my Fitbit working again I’ll find you on it so we can keep each other motivated. #momsterslink

  8. lol you made me laugh here! I’d say those cherries are lethal! They’d be lovely & tasty but so strong. The dog on the floor is hilarious – I’m glad you recovered & are back stepping like a champ. I hope you are enjoying your visit today! #momsterlink

  9. Congrats on your big win Trista! My teenager started out rooting for the Panthers but once he realized they were going to lose in the first quarter, he decided to root for the Broncos. Mind you, he’s a Patriots fan so switching sides was not big deal but he was glad the Broncos won. Moonshine Cherries? Holy crap lady, I want some of those! I love cherries but I’ve never had Moonshine before so that is something I will have to try! I didn’t pay attention to the half time show so I didn’t even know it was controversial until I read it all over Facebook the next day. Several of my old classmates were in an uproar over it. It seems the half-time show has become a catalyst for controversy now so I just don’t care. I am so glad I got my fitbit! I am addicted to it. I even wear it to bed so it can track my sleep, which apparently I am restless a lot. No surprise there. I am also so glad to be a part of the #activitytrackerchallenge with you. It’s been a lot of fun! Congrats on the 90,000 steps! You go girl!!

    1. Thanks girlie! I had to get a new phone and reload the app and it deleted my stats and for some reason gave me a different profile. Oh well there’s always next week. Now that I have you on the app I’ll invite you to challenges so be prepared! *evil grin* I’m glad you like it though …getting moving is a great addiction. And I’m restless and apparently sleep walk sometimes. Lol. How cute your son switched who he was cheering for … My house was crazy that day and it was only my 6 member little family. And yes do look for the moonshine cherries or blueberries at the grocery store in the hard liquor section πŸ˜‰

    1. My mom has come for a visit this week so it’s thrown my schedule off a bit but I’ve got a knee that’s swelling on me so I think I’ll take the weekend off from exercise. Will be back in full swing on Monday though! I really feel blah if I don’t work out. Thanks for linking up.


      1. Yep I agree, as much as it pained me to get up and go to Pilates, afterwards I did feel great!! It’s worse in winter when the weather is bad and my PJs are beckoning, maybe in summer I will become more active!!! Hope your knee eases up. Xx
