It seems as though I spent all of my allotted blogging time working on BLEND stuff yesterday. I swear, we have like 4 Google Docs running right now! The fact that we’ve NEVER seen or met one another in person and we’re doing this just BLOWS MY MIND sometimes!!
A few announcements before we get into TT:
**This week is National Eating Disorder Awareness week (NEDA) and this year’s theme is “Everybody Knows Somebody”. Did you know that 1 in 5 women struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating?!?! Also, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. <-thanks, Claire, for alerting me to this fact!
Some of you know, but some might not – I’ve struggled with an eating disorder before (for about 3 years). SO glad I’m not that girl anymore and that I was able to overcome those issues! I just try to take it one day at a time!
To read about my ED past, go here and work your way back (there are six installments)!
**I’m going to Bootcamp!! And not one that I’m teaching!!
My great friend, Tina, is hosting a virtual bootcamp! She’s developed an 8 week program of workouts that’s going to get us all bikini ready!! That sounds great and all, but the REAL reason I signed up was because of the PRIZES! Seriously, go take a look at what you could win (cash is one of them!)
Ok..now let’s discuss what we’ll be working on this upcoming week.
I don’t know where you live, but the weather lately in North Carolina has been absolutely STELLAR!! Like 70 degrees some days! Flowers are blooming and I even killed a mosquito yesterday!
That means SPRING is coming!
And daylight savings!!
And smaller clothing.
It’s almost tank-top season, ya’ll!!
Clara is thrilled! She’s waited 12 months to show those arms off.
The theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is “Tank Top Ready”! Show me what you’ve got in your “move arsenal” that works your upper body! Torso up.
Here’s my move: An Upright Row to Shoulder Press
A few guidelines:
- ANYONE can participate – blogger or not.
- If you do blog, be sure to introduce yourself AND your blog.
- Feel free to give tips on proper execution and technique.
- DON’T include a number of reps. I’ll do that part.
- If your move isn’t correct, meaning improper form or instruction, I will not be able to feature it. Do your homework and get it right!!
- On Tuesday, grab the Tuesday Trainer button, to provide your readers with an easy link to the workout! Simply copy the text in my side bar and paste it into your HTML code.
**DEADLINE for submitting moves is Monday night, the 5th, at 8pm EST. Again, go here to learn how to upload your video!**
I’m off to the gym to bang out some speed work. 2 weeks till race time. Eek.
QUESTION: Have you or anyone you know struggled with disordered eating? That stat: 1 in 5…thoughts? Did it surprise you that it was so high?
