Sleep Finally, a BOSU Push-Up and a Wienervention GIVEAWAY


Finally friends. FINALLY we had an uninterrupted night of sleep. I was asleep around 9:30 pm and woke up at my first alarm at 5:01 am.

Heck yes. It was like Christmas in July!

I know, I’m not getting my hopes up, but my little man earned 2 stickers on his sleep card I made him.


I know I asked if anyone knows how my iFit Active band tracks sleep.

Well, it’s more of a mystery than ever now.

2014-07-23 05.45.49

Ha ha. I forgot to change it to sleep mode when I went to bed. I guess it doesn’t automatically change over.

I’ve still got a few things to learn, although this little gem is pretty automatic about a lot of other things. Not as much to learn as the cool Prep Pad kitchen gadget. Ha ha.


Let’s see, so I actually woke up with my first alarm. I was on the treadmill early with a movie “Lola Versus”. Cute flick. 10 easy pace miles at 1.0 incline. Done.

Really random snack of the morning.

2014-07-23 08.02.32

Chicken apple sausage, Fuji apple and the least ripe banana we had at the house. I’m not a fan of bananas that have any kind of brown on them, but it was all we had. I prefer them with a green tip still.

Taught a spin class. Played with the boys at the pool after their swim class and then made it to Barnes and Nobles right away for Batman Day.

2014-07-23 10.41.262014-07-23 10.43.38-1

Ha ha. Yeah, today is the 75th year celebration of the comic Batman.


Speaking of Batman, here’s a cool move we did in class yesterday for the triceps (some people like to call them “bat wings”) and the core and obliques.

Tricep push-up in the BOSU.

Start in a plank position with your hands a little closer than shoulder width apart. Bend your elbows straight down while taking both knees towards one shoulder. Back to center. Repeat on opposite side.

In case you prefer the video version. Silence is golden in my few minutes after I teach a class. Ha.


(Trying to post videos on here has been a little weird, so if you can’t see it click here to watch it on my YouTube channel.)


Okay so did you know that today is National Hot Dog Day?

Yes, yes it is.

We were sent a kit from Applegate to celebrate the special occasion AND have a little wienervention of our own.

What’s a wienervention (otherwise known by Judah as a “wiener invention”). Well, here you go.

All the information is here, but really, this video is too funny not to share.


We celebrated a day early last night with our kit.



I know, right? That apron is pretty awesome.


Guess which “cleaner wiener” was mine.

Ha ha.

We also had our nightly show and bootie dance.



Applegate wants you to be able to have a wienervention of your own. You might not be able to have it today for National HOt Dog Day, but if you leave a comment below with your favorite hot dog toppings, you can enter to win this kit.

2014-07-23 11.25.14

- Annie’s Organic Ketchup and Mustard

- Rick’s Pick’s Relish

    Annie’s organic ketchup is the best ketchup! Did you like it?
    I don’t like bananas too ripe either, so I’m glad I finally found a smoothie I like with frozen bananas, it has coffee and cocoa in it.
    I just made a sandwich with sunflower butter, almond coconut butter, a little raspberry pomegranate jam and fresh raspberries, instead of blueberries, Thanks for the idea. Also, I made your quick pumpkin dip last night, without the chia and added a bit of almond milk, vanilla stevia and cinnamon, it was good.
