I’ve been busy becoming thoroughly spooked because of Halloween, y’all. No, really. I’ve been glued to the television, watching my favorite spooky procedurals: Grimm, Elementary, and Castle. I also cannot stop reading the feminist blog Jezebel’s annual Halloween Fright Night short stories. Every year, readers write in their favorite ghost stories. Some of these stories are so intense, everyone! Read if you’re a fan of ghost stories, or if you want to have trouble sleeping at night….
I also am happy to report I’ve been busy stretching and biking my cute little butt off at home. Ron and I bought a stationary bike on Amazon for 129 bucks, and I bought a sky blue Cynthia Rowley yoga mat at Homegoods for 15 dollars!! Happy early Christmas to us!!
Believe it or not, Ron and I use this bike almost every day. We love it! We carry/use weights while we’re cycling, which makes this an even more difficult workout. And who doesn’t love exercising while watching tv? I also do various stretches, situps, and plank exercises on my yoga mat. In fact, I am right now loving this “The Mini-Workout” I spotted on Pinterest. The workout set was featured on the cute blog Tales of a Domestic Mama, and it’s a quick, killer of a workout. I never thought an indoor, resistance-training workout (that requires no equipment) could get my heart rate going and get my body pumping….But I was definitely wrong. This kicked my butt! Try this at home, y’all. You will be sweating and panting, I promise!
