shred

I love a challenging workout, but I get bored really easily. I’m in pretty good shape, and I’m sure I could handle running  5-7 miles, but my mind is so over it after 2 or 3. I have exercise A.D.D.!

look at those guns

That’s why roller derby has been so good to me. The 2 hour practices fly by because we are constantly moving, jumping, racing, sprinting (because we’re being ordered to). On my days off, I like to jog or attend a yoga class (lactic acid be gone!). But since it’s so damn cold outside now, I’ve returned to an old standby- workout DVDs.

Yes, I have a treadmill in my living room… but like I said, I get bored really really easily, and I guess I like being told what to do.

I own one DVD that I discovered (by chance) before I ever started derby. I LOVE it, but it’s been around long enough that I need something else in the rotation. It’s a big deal to me that the only equipment you need for this are dumbbells. Hell, you could use soup cans or detergent bottles if you’re in a pinch.

So, I was looking for something challenging for those who are no stranger exercise, no fancy equipment required, and something short and efficient to keep my mind from wandering. Enter: Jillian Michaels.

Yeah, so I kind of just liked the name ‘Shred’, but I’m extremely happy with it. It’s VERY similar to the workouts we do in derby: walking planks and pushups,  TONS of plyometrics, and good old-fashioned calisthenics. Bonus points for squeezing a ton of exercising in to either  a 20 or 30 minute workout. I did both the first night and was so sore the next day.

So long as the weather sucks, I’ll be Netflixing more workout DVDs. Got any suggestions?

swell

sometimes I’m very thankful for targeted advertising.  I otherwise might not have seen this (local ad on hipsterrunoff.com):

reasons I must see this concert:

- I adore the movie Once

- Even more, I adore the soundtrack

- Glen and Marketa have the most hauntingly beautiful duets

-Glen has a beard…Ok, and he kinda reminds me of my special man friend:

I watched about 1/4 of this movie last night.  It got an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes. So far, I like it.

…and it’s sad how in love I am with Michelle Williams’ hair
