30 minute Thursday: 10’s and Pins

by LCCotter on February 9, 2012

So guess what? I spent most of the day trying to figure out how to create a picture for my workout. Why? So that I could finally PIN it!! Thank you Facebook for being way better than Google today.

FB

See, I did it!! Screen shot and all. I know, I am a bit behind the times here. Oh, and I also figured out that I want a MacBook!

So excuse me for a minute while I insert a another random picture from my screen shot. Just for the heck of it.

Yes, I actually look at this each day. We had 3 this morning. Shaky night!

Quakes

Yes, Christchurch and Lyttleton (above) are basically the same area. Lyttleton is the harbor area. Poor harbor town has gotten the worst of the quakes. I took pictures there the other day. But thankfully most homes still remain nestled in the hills. See….

o-matic

If you have a random’s section for Pinterest, then PIN away! just kidding.

Sheesh, when did this whole pinterest thing take over my life? Oh ya, when I first got invited. I blame JEN for that. haha.

Alright, enough about pinning. Wanna do a workout? How about a 30 minute Thursday as it’s finest! I call this my 10’s workout, and it just so happens to rhyme with PIN. Winking smile

10's

Okay enough, really. No more pin talk. Go workout!


one last thing…. guess what I finished? Here’s a sneak peak….

Capture

Now I just gotta figure out how to load it onto wordpress. Technology overload here.

Hmmmm, maybe I should rename this post Thursday Randomness.

What Randoms have you done today?

Cheers,

LC

p.s.

I’m thinking about doing a Q&A post about our life in New Zealand. You sick of hearing about New Zealand yet? If not, ask away! Smile with tongue out

Hooray for Healthy Bites Ebook!!! Can’t wait! Can let me know about the technology side of Ebooking, pretty please?? I’m writing a severe allergy one at the moment. Recipes I can do, technology, hmmmmm?

Oh Lyttleton is my FAV… Banks Peninsula rocks my world.

I love seeing NZ through your eyes x

I am not even on pinterest. That’s how behind I am. I don’t know if my brain can handle more information right now. I totally doing this workout though! Looks like a great one. I can’t believe you have your first book together! I love that you have such great focus there. I feel like I need to come there too! Maybe that’s where my focus has gone?

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:41 pm

i feel like it should have taken a lot less time to make (the ebook that is) but i am at a slow pace here. haha. and just keep focusing on you, no need for pinterest until you are ready. I love that about you sarena!! COme here, really!

That’s awesome!!! Congrats :)
Looking forward to seeing more pin-able workouts from you, lady!

Lauren @ Lawfully Wedded Wife February 9, 2012 at 1:10 pm

No way am I tired of hearing about New Zealand!!! My question is: What have you noticed is/are the biggest cultural differences between Americans and Kiwis?

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 5:56 pm

oh gosh, the quality of life. NO one walks around with their phone looking down, always texting. THey take 2 hour lunch breaks, and the pace is SLOW but QUALITY! The food is fresh and always local of course. It’s just refreshing!

Sarah @ The Healthy Diva February 9, 2012 at 1:15 pm

ooooo so excited for your ebook! I’m a total pinterest fan as well…just followed ur boards. Random things I’ve been loving lately: white tea to change up from normal green and monster green smoothies for breakfast. Gets ur engine revving. Yes i would be very interested to hear more about NZ. Btw does everyone say ‘cuz’ alot? I’ve heard it’s about as common as ‘sweet as’

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 5:57 pm

white tea! love it. Good random add in. And i haven’t heard cuz a lot, at least i don’t think. But i have a hard time understanding anyway. haha.

Katie February 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Get a MacBook! I’m a dedicated Mac snob and damn proud of it! You’ll love it. So much easier to use than a PC. And I am NOT technologically inclined at all.

ok, i am saving up! Macbook twin!

Love, love, love. Heading up to Cleveland this weekend for a Run For Sherry and I’m going to try and stock up again. Gotta take advantage of the moment.

PS I about shit (sorry) myself when I realized Hillary Biscay posted immediately below me. Ahhhhh!! And with that my mind is too boggled to ask a question…right now =)

A book of bites–yessss!!! So excited.
My questions are:
What is your favorite coffee shop there in the ChCh and surrounding area?
And favorite long run/hike route??

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 5:59 pm

oh i bet you can answer all these questions for me! so many coffee shops that i adore. I want to take them all back to the states with me. We frequent coffee culture a lot though. THe one in meriville.

Heather (Where's the Beach) February 9, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I’m trying my hand at the pinning thing too. Love pinterest but blogger doesn’t want to play as nicely with the pinterest gadget. Mmmmmm book of bites – does it come with samples ;-)

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:00 pm

haha, i know. we need a pinterest help group. ANd the book, samples might happen if you come visit!

Reply

Jess February 9, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I LOVE the book of bites!! Can’t wait to see it all!!

I’m also with you – pinterest is tricky to figure out isn’t it? At least for us technically challenged folk ;-)

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:01 pm

i know, we need a techonology retreat. wanna go?! haha.

jobo February 9, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Yay pinterest! I am now following ;-) Book of bites…um, yum. I am drooling. Def do the Q&A!!!

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:01 pm

I miss sending you bites. SOon though, right? i love how you support me. thank you!!!!

Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning February 9, 2012 at 2:50 pm

I totally underuse Pinterest. Mostly because it’s blocked at my work, and that’s when I’m usually at the computer! I always think it’s funny when i look at my blog stats and see all of these things that people pinned from my pictures. It just makes me laugh.
Oh, and BTW- I LOVE my Macbook. I’d never buy any other laptop!

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:03 pm

it is fun but addicting. Okay, so i am all about the macbook now. gonna save up! xoxo

Christine @ Merf In Progress February 9, 2012 at 3:06 pm

I didn’t bring my gym stuff today, so I’m planning to do a little in-office workout at some point, just for a break. I’m going to try some of the things from your post. I can’t break a sweat though, in my pretty clothes. :)

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:03 pm

good!! report back, k? pleeeeease.

Looks like a great workout!

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) February 9, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Pretty photos!

OK I have no freaking idea what you guys are talking about. I apparently signed up for pinterest (didn’t know it was such an elite club that you need to be invited!), was invited, I guess I set up an account because a few people follow me, but I have NO idea how to get into it again. Not that I have time to sit on pinterest if I can’t even read blogs lol.

Looks like another good workout, Linds.

Reply

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:04 pm

ya, the whole social media thing is a bit overwhelming, isn’t it? I bet JG can explain everything a lot better than i can. SHe’s a pro! Think you’ll try this workout? if so, let me know if you add anything. I like your style.
;)

Reply

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) February 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm

It looks pretty complete and I love your idea of multitasking with the squat curls. Running with that theme perhaps you could do an even more intense set if you were feeling extra perky with the overhead presses if you added a split lunge or alt lunge?? Otherwise, I’d leave it exactly as is! i’ll do this workout when I’m done with my current program- believe it or not I’m TRYING live fit temporarily anyway… until the travels pick up again and make it impossible- we’ll see- I’m not used to doing zERO cardio and it’s freaking me out! I haven’t sweated in a week!

Reply

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) February 9, 2012 at 3:48 pm

PS I’m assuming that you are talking about getting some text to be pinnable right? Because I’ve had photos lifted off my blog from pinterest so I’m guessing that photos are easy, ,right???

josie @ happycorredora.com February 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I am pretty technologically challenged too…. but I do have a macbook :)

Definitely post about NZ… I always tell people there are more sheep there than people ;) Plus they say fish and chups… haha… all in good fun :)

LCCotter February 9, 2012 at 6:05 pm

LOL!! We were just talking about the sheep! we are out numbered here. so what would you want to know about NZ?

Yay for the randomness. And you’ve totally got me beat for the technology thing. I’d love a macBook too. And I do believe a MacBook would help your husband be a better racer. Because ultimately, you’d be more productive on the technology front and that would leave more time for you to plan his nutrition and help him in general. Think about it. A win, win situation :-0 Can’t wait for the ebook (although I’ve never done anything with an ebook before)

So many things to say! First off, I haven’t been commenting all week…but I’ve been reading! And I LOVED your recent sherpa video. Also, yesterday’s “sweet as” post was awesome – love the saying! Lastly, congrats on the cookbook! Good workout too…I’ll have to try that one sometime (or pin it – whichever comes first). ;) I miss you! And appreciate who you are. Have a wonderful start to the weekend, my friend!

yikes..you think you are behind…i got a new cell phone last week, i still had a flip phone..took 3 tries before i figured out how to answer the darn thing. now i am texting….what the heck is pin??
have to tell you about my big oops! i teach a circuit blaster class in the am..today was a pyramid..15-30-45-60-60-45-30-15, 6 exercises.
i explain it…even though we had done this last fall. they all kinda look at me funny..but away we go. about 40mins into the class everyone , including me is just sweating and looking just beat and i can’t figure out why this is taking so long and why we are unable to finish. so finally i say 5 more minutes and we are done. well…i had explained the class as doing 15 reps of each exercise, then 30, then 45, 60 etc. when it should have been 15 secs of each then 30 secs, then 45 secs etc. but my gang… the strong amazing ladies and 1 fellow they are…just did it…the exercises were..tapping pushups, side lunges with twist, get-ups, squats, mountain climbers, and jump rope.
