Well week 6 is almost over! I can’t believe it! We had our 5 week testing last Saturday and so far I’ve lost 11lbs, 4in off my chest, 4in. off my wast, gained 1in. on by biceps and 1in. in my quads. I’m feeling great! I have more energy during the day and absolutely love the team that owner Erik and Lindsay Piper have put together. They are the best at what they do! Be sure to tune into the QMIX 80′s Saturday night this weekend 7p-midnight….It’s going to be a great time!!
I hope you have lots of fun stuff planned for this weekend! If not, check out our community calendar….hint hint…
If not, maybe think about adding one of these items to your schedule….another great list from Thoughtcatalog.com….check it out!
We all should slow down I think…and these are a great ways to start.
So last night…I got my booty kicked! Where you may ask? Oh you know where….
Last night was fitness kickboxing. I usually get my booty kicked, but last night was ridiculous! So I’m trying to figure out who to blame it on….
I could blame Erik Piper…because he was a DRILL SARGENT last night! Remember him? He’s the one that’s super sweet outside of Farrell’s but will make you WORK when he’s instructing a class…(PS…I think he reads minds…because I’ve never shared how much I hate burpees with him and we did a LOT of those last night…)
I could also blame the SWEET amped up 90′s playlist we had going in the background! Even moved into some Britney Spears…I was rockin’ it! But then I used way to much energy early on and then was dying by the end of the session….
I could even blame it on the fact I was still sore from lower body strength training yesterday…
But I won’t….because when it’s all over, I feel accomplished and fantastic.
And ready for bed!
Excited for Upper body strength training tonight!
‘Tis the Season to clean out yo’ fridge!
Who said springtime was the only season for cleaning?
Get out your trash bags (and plastic gloves and gas masks), because FRIDAY is National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day.
It’s high time to remove the Chinese food cartons that have turned into science experiments and start making room for the Thanksgiving leftovers that will soon be occupying space in your fridge.
The origins of National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day are not entirely clear; one Web site pins it on a Whirlpool Appliance Ad campaign from years ago, while other sites say it’s to make space for Thanksgiving provisions.
We want to see your pictures of your fridges! Post your pics to the QMIX Facebook Page or upload them to Twitter [ @QMIX1073 and use hashtag #QMIXFridge ]!
One World Trade Center is but isn’t the tallest building in the country. Tuesday, it was allowed to count it’s spire as part of its official height which is good because without the extra 408 feet it wouldn’t hit the magical 1776 foot height. Minus the topper, the Willis Tower in Chicago is still the tallest building by about 80 feet. With as much as the thing cost you would have thought someone could have looked up on Wikipedia how tall it needed to be so they wouldn’t need a technicality to set a record.
What’s more annoying than the buzzing of an alarm clock? How about one that reminds you of your financial instability, social insecurity, and fear of death. It’s called the ALARMclock — emphasis on the “alarm” — and it wakes you up by reminding you about all the things you tell it you’re afraid of. It will announce how much money you have (or don’t have) in the back, remind you how much you owe to debt collectors, it can tell you how many days you have left to live based on age, health, lifestyle, diet, family history, and other things you tell it. That’s either going to motivate you or scare you into never wanting to leave bed.
Who would think you’d have to know how to actually talk to someone to get a job. that’s one of the major reasons young kids can’t get a job. 60% of hiring managers say they are actually the ones that are holding themselves back, and the big thing is many don’t know how to talk to other people in a professional way. Other ‘soft skills’ they lack arewriting, problem-solving, flexibility, punctuality…There’s a good place to start: don’t be late for the interview.
There’s a website that can guess what you say on your Facebook statuses.
It has some sort of algorithm that trends what you say over all of your statuses, jumbles them together and then you find out what you get!
Complete random ones!
Pop culture ones!
Go ahead and log into Facebook while you’re there. You’ll get some gems! Let us know which funny, family friendly ones you got! Tell us in the comments on the QMIX Facebook page!
Don’t deny it!
I love it when friends on Facebook post interesting reads that suck you in and get your mind thinking. It provides a good balance from all the Bit Strips and Ridiculous memes and info graphs.
OK- back to this great read…
I’m sure if you’ve ever traveled to another country, you’ve come across some interesting traditions, food, ways of living, etc…and I bet you have thought “That is so weird! Why do you do it this way?”
Well this article is how other countries see us…
Some very interesting insights in this…both on the light and heavy side. I think we as Americans get so caught up in the attitude that we are awesome at everything and do all the things right, that we miss considering how other cultures and countries see and do things in their daily lives.
I hope you take some time to check this out (or at least bookmark it and read it at lunch).
It’s a great opportunity to appreciate what you have, and realize that we can be “foreigners” too.
Enjoy! -Sara Beth
