LCW... play a game with me!

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I need some nudging to fit in some quick bursts of oxygen, my exercise time is limited today, so I'm going to be using the restroom at work for some quick GOYB's (get off your boo-tay!).

Sooo... if you're reading this, look at your desktop clock, see what time it is. How ever many minutes after the hour it is, drop what you're doing and do that many jumping jacks!

Can't do a jumping jack for health reasons? Modify or substitute, be smart :-)

LEAVE ME A COMMENT and tell me how many you did. It'll help encourage me to look at my clock!!

emoticon I'm off to do 46 JJ's!!
emoticon 46, emoticon 29, emoticon 48, emoticon 6, emoticon 34, emoticon 11, emoticon 54, emoticon 15, emoticon 31, emoticon 3
Keep 'em coming!!

    CRAP! It's 10:09PM and I just saw this! I'll do 9 push ups, since upper body ST is my weakness and then I'm headed to bed. Give me a heads up the next time you do this so I can play ALL day! Love you and your crazy idea!

    I do wall pushups and squats in the bathroom, but I can't imagine doing jumping jacks! I already got "caught" by a security guard doing wall pushups, and that was embarrassing enough! Maybe I'll try running in place for a cardio bathroom exercise.

    I guess I read this and checked my clock at the right time -- depending on your point of view.

Just did 4 JJs.


I like your game, Mel!

    I use the restroom stall at work for exercising too. My favorites are punches and squats. It's amazing how much energy i get doing these for just a couple minutes.
