Nice goals though, and fantastic gifs. I have no doubt you will kick butt in the minis. :)

Jeez... I can do 20 sets of unassisted squats with no problems, and exactly 0 assisted single-leg squats. Feel like they skipped a few steps there!

Seriously!!!

 

I laughed out loud when it asked about the Chin up. I can't even do 1 push up with good form and you want to know if I can do a chin up??

 

Following along!

Lol chin ups I can do zero of as well. Just had this conversation with Mana the other night. Then we both got to gape as I expressed my husband saying "oh I can do those" and just randomly tossed out 3 chin ups and 3 pull ups to show me the form and muscles involved. Show off...

Hahaha. And here I was thinking that photo was what you cooked! Do you have a recipe? Sounds like a delicious dish to try!

Its pretty easy!

 

* 4 thin pork chops (1/2 inch thick). salt/pepper to taste. rub in. spray pan with cooking spray, brown on each side. High-medium heat.

* take 1 can (11 oz mandrine oranges "DRAINED) and poor on top of the pork chops.

* sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves over all.

Cover with a tight fitting lid. cook on low "simmer" for 20-25 minutes until desired done. (I did 20 minutes, but I think I may have had too much heat and the orange juice got thick and tar-y on the bottom.) It didnt affect the flavor of anything else, but when I first saw it I was like, MAN!!! it burned!. LOL

 I always skip the canned sections in grocery. I always thought fresh would be better. But I've seen here and read that sometimes the canned versions do the trick. I'll look up any canned oranges in our grocery and try this.

On another Note! 1 of my quests was to cut back on the computer unless it was related to class, fitness, library, or research...... I found that I basically swapped FB with Nerd fitness and still spend way too much time on the computer......

 

tumblr_o0c8dpVSuX1u2887eo1_500.gif tumblr_inline_n8wwp8CW7x1rk4p6f.gif

 

So I made a correction to my computer activity. I am going to try to only check my computer during a designated time each day. Lets see how this goes.
