If I could recommend one piece of home workout equiptment, it would be the BOSU.

Bosus are like the top quart of a stability ball with a flat plastic base. Their function is to provide a consistantly unstable surface for you to work on so your core and whatever muscle group you are working is constantly engaged.  So not only can you do the same exercises you would on a stability ball, but you can also stand on it to do squats, lunges, plyometrics, holds, or you can stand on it while doing upper body exercises, too.  You can also flip it over, and use the black flat side to hold onto for pushups, burpees (aka. squat thrusts) or mountain climbers.

They are about $90, which is kind of pricey, but its uses are unlimited.  They have a lot of them on ebay, so you could probably find on for cheaper. And while you are there, you can also pick up your very own velvet jesus portrait.  Oh, how I love the ebay.

 No gym today.  Its the boy and I’s anniversaryso we are soon taking Seattle by storm.  And by that, I mean going to an all you can eat Japanese buffet, drinking our weight in sake (which by the 4th bottle is pronounce sock-AYYY!) and wandering downtown trying not to step on degenerates or their urine.  Romantic.

So in preparation for the night, I adjusted my cals accordingly, but still remainede balanced.

Breakfast: 1 banana, 1 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 organic cliff bar

Snack: 1 light yogurt with 1 packet Bear Naked granola

Lunch: Subway 6 inch turkey on wheat with veggies, no mayo or oil, diet coke

Dinner: TBA but I know it will involve sushi, crab legs and tempura. And sake.

Yesterday’s steps: 11089. My pedometer fell off around 7 which I didnt notice until later, so I’m sure I hit 12,000.

Happy Friday. Do something fun. Kiala, do your crunches.
