Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Mine was pretty low-key, but I think that was much-needed after Friday’s long day.
Friday was the 2nd filming day for the WBBC At-Home Fitness Program! We were in the sun for about 6.5 hours, did 4 workouts, and lots of other speaking footage. It was a ton of fun, but a ton of work, too! If you’re interested in the program, you can click this link to get on our waiting list. 😉
I’m a total doophus and forgot to wear sunscreen.
(Funny story about that “Kiss Me” balloon….it’s from Valentine’s day!! Charlie and I are trying to see how long it will stay inflated. Best.balloon investment.ever, if you ask me.)
The camera man and I have some very funny farmer’s tans going on!
I’m not trying to make light of these sunburns. It’s obviously extremely dangerous, but we were just so frazzled in the morning that we both forgot sunscreen. :-/ Live and learn.
Here are some shots from the filming:
Anyways, I’m really excited for this to come out!
After filming and working out in the sun all day, we were STARVING. We found an AWESOME little Hawaiian burger shack nearby called, Shaka Shack Burgers. AMAZING. The sweet potato fries were probably the best I’ve ever heard. SUPER GREASY and DELICIOUS haha. I ordered the Turkey Burger and it was pretty awesome too.
Charlie and I always talk about going to pawn shops to see if we can luck out with some smokin’ deals. It’s much more difficult these days since you can find out what everything is worth on the internet. We finally decided that this was the day we would actually go look!
We drove to Hollywood and went to a few different pawn shops. There was definitely some interesting stuff in them, but ultimately, we walked away empty handed. We ALMOST got a really killer deal on a vintage microphone, but alas, it didn’t work. Womp, womp.
We finished around 4:30pm and decided to go to the Arclight to see Neighbors.
This movie definitely had some hilarious moments, but overall, I’d give it a 7. Probably best to wait for it to come out on DVD, which nowadays should be about 2 weeks! Haha. (Remember when you used to have to wait MONTHS AND MONTHS for a movie to come out just for RENTAL….buying it was like a year. Crazy how times have changed.)
We finished off the night by making dinner, baking cookies (YUM) and watching Dexter.
I woke up earlier than Charlie and started cleaning the house. Eventually he joined me and then we headed to the gym for a workout. We did the following supersets (weights/reps are mine…Charlie is stronger than me and did more weight plus higher box jumps):
4 Sets of
-Medicine Ball Thrusters (16 lb ball x 15 reps)
-DB Push Ups w/ Rotation (10 lb DBs x 8 reps)
4 Sets of
Heavy Deadlifts (139 lbs x 10 reps)
Burpee-Pull Ups (bw x 5 reps)
2 Sets of
DB Shoulder Press (25lb DBs x 8 reps)
Box Jumps (24 inc. x 10 reps)
Charlie also helped me work on my form for box jumps. I was doing the 24 inch box, which I’ve done many times before, but my form wasn’t great. With the tips he gave me, I’m ready to tackle the tall 30 inch box. Just need to get some cajones, that’s all!
Some fun slo-mo videos of us!
That’s all I’ve got today! I’ll be back tomorrow morning with my workout plans for the week!
Have you ever been to a pawn shop?
Ever found a REALLY cool steal while at a pawn shop?
