If you struggle with balancing home and fitness…

…ummm, yeah. Me too. So don’t feel bad about it. Josie is here to comfort thee in your time of angst. Balancing home and fitness life is hard times, yo.

Exhibit A: While taking a pic of the back of Greedy Baby’s head (because I did a hair braid), I noticed a dirty stock wrapped around the control lever-thingy of Hub’s man-chair.

dirty socks If you struggle with balancing home and fitness...

At first I was appalled. Then I remembered I noticed that same sock before… a week ago. I forgot to take it off. Everyone else in the house has ignored it, of course. But here’s the extra lame part:

The sock is still there right now.  I got super-busy after snapping the pic. My favorite TV show came on. I was stuck in couch-azzing position. This is clearly excusable behavior and the proper way to balance home & family with other stuff.

Because even if that dirty sock has foot-stank-juice inside and grows fungal tentacles while hanging there, at least I watched my show and got in my workout this morning. BOOM!

I promise my house doesn’t look like hoarders, but priorities, my people. Priorities!

Post-Holiday Weekend Detox Made Easy

Soooo, about that thing I posted to my Facebook & Google+ this past Friday….

holiday weekend Post Holiday Weekend Detox Made Easy

…and now that the barbecuing, chacken wang-eatin’ and rib-smacking is done? Just move it right along.

Because really, there’s no time for stagnation brought on by guilt or a woe-is-me attitude. That’s only gonna slow you down.

If you indulged more than planned, look back on your holiday weekend to assess the situation only from the positive standpoint of “how can I do better next time”. Or heck, maybe you wanna look back on it to give yourself a hi-5, because: “Hell yeah! That shizz was goood!” (yep, that’s me)

I thoroughly enjoyed every last morsel of food I gnawed on. If you’re feeling a little bummed about your food choices, the best weekend detox you can do is to detox your mind. Flood it with positivity and focus for the sake of re-gaining a good attitude about your fitness.

What’s done is done, so let your thoughts be all about right now  — about getting back down to business for a successful week of healthyfication.

Detox yo’ mind, baby!

If instead you were searching for some state-of-the-art celebrity detox diets secrets, I do not apologize. You’re more likely to find pie-eating secrets all up in this place. Just sayin’.

Advanced Tricep Dips Quickie

You know how I like to keep it simple, yet kick yo’ ass at the same time. Today will be no different. You’re gonna feel this all up in the Tricepticus region of your arms. Now let’s git to it…

…thank you for subscribing to YumYucky’s YouTube channel! xoxo

WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

  • 10 Tricep dips
  • 10-count static hold at the top of the move
  • 10 Tricep dips

All of the above counts as one set. Challenge yourself to complete the entire set with no rest.

If you’re not yet advanced with your Triceps dips, or you’re just feeling too damn lazy to lift your legs onto a chair or bench, simply keep your feet planted on the floor.

If you feel any pain beyond the muscle burn or start losing your form, take a quick break before getting right back to it. To advancify the dips even further, set a weighted plate or dumbbell on your thighs.
