#ShareaCoke with Pictures

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Coke has started a new marketing campaign. I didn't know about it until I walked by the soda section and saw my name on a bottle. I thought I was seeing things, LOL! Needless to say, I bought it because it had my name on it. It currently is sitting on top of my refrigerator. I decided to watch for my DH and kids' names on bottles. I found a Coke Zero with Josh's (DH) name on it, but haven't seen either of my children's names yet. I would like to get all of our names in Classic Coke for sure just for keepsake purposes. Is that weird??

For the fun of it, Josh and I decided to snap a selfie with our bottles.



Then I added a different photo effect on this one:



So, if you love coke, go out there and #shareacoke with someone!

Pull Up Assist Bands ~ Advice?

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

So, I have been doing P90X3 and using Exercise bands to do the modification Pull Ups. I can't do an unassisted chin up/pull up....yet. I don't feel like the bands are doing as much for me anymore. I am still not in a place to be able to do even one unassisted.

My question is how does everyone feel about Assist Bands? Do they work and do you think this would be an option for me to build up to doing unassisted pull ups?

Thanks for your help!

    I purchased a pull-up band from amazon and I think it said that it decreases your pull by about 50lbs and you can decrease/adjust it easily. I like it but currently need to use a chair as well. Definitely getting better at the pull-ups with the assist than without, I can feel my muscles working way harder than using the chair solo. It makes me more confident with the exercise and determined to get it right. I'm glad I bought it.

It's Perfect Fitness Pull-Up Assist red. Looks just like the one beach body has. Very sturdy. Priced at $25 right now. The price fluctuates fyi.

    I read an article the other day that suggested doubling the bands once their max potential was reached. Not sure...there are so many kinds.
