Happy New Year, Ladies!!

It was a cold one this morning, but we have our minds and bodies set on bringing in the New Year right!  We had 10 PAX post for this mornings workout! Whoooohooooo! #StrongerTogether!

We decided on a later start this morning since most of us were up late watching Mariah Carey redeem herself at this years broadcast of the Dick Clark New Year’s celebration right before the ball drop and the exciting count down to the New Year ahead.

Straight Shooter, Wonder Woman, and Chocolate Chip (from Foxtrot) joined us at Jimmy Dean this morning and Wonder Woman brought her bags-o-fun for us – 4olb bags full of sand!  So, we grabbed a sand baby and headed to the turf field.

After a quick warm up (jumping jacks, butt kickers and some stretches), we got started.

*The Thang* – Bring On the New Year, Baby!!!

-Round 1 w/partner:Lung chase w/baby (One partner starts lunging around the bases while the other partner runs around the bases until they catch up to the partner lunging.  They take over lunging and the other partner runs the bases).  The lunges were done while holding our sand babies, of course!

-Round 2 w/partner: squat, step, chase w/baby (One partner starts squat/stepping around the bases while the other partner runs around the bases until they catch up to the partner squatting.  They take over squatting and the other partner runs the bases). Iglesia got real low on her squats, while Hermione threw the sand baby on her back and watched her form to get the most out of every squat.

After everyone finished, we each grabbed our sand babies and ran it up the hill, dropped it, ran back down the hill for 18 push ups – welcome 2018!! Sugar had great form on her push ups…I envy this!!  I will work hard for this to be me by the end of the year!

We ran back up the hill to start our 4 corners segment:

Round 1:
Corner 1: 9 burpees
[run to next corner]

Corner 2: 18 mountain climbers
[run to next corner]

Corner 3: 9 burpees
[run to next corner]

Corner 4: 18 mountain climbers
[run to next corner]

Round 2:
Corner 1: 9 push ups
[run to next corner]

Corner 2: 18 plank jacks
[run to next corner]

Corner 3: 9 push ups
[run to next corner]

Corner 4: 18 plank jacks
[run to next corner]

Chocolate Chip and Turkey Trot were swift and kept the lead most of the way.  Thanks for setting a great pace for us and pushing us to go stronger & faster, ladies!

We ended with the Ring of Fire….we planked in a circle while one FiA at a time got up to run around the circle back to her original spot until all FiA’s had a turn.  Jersey Girl  was brave to start us off and ran around the circle quick and didn’t make us suffer too bad. She took one for the team because since she went first that meant she had to hold her plank the rest of the time as the rest of the PAX had their turn.  Great job ladies!

We gathered around for our COT time:

In honor of the New Year, my thought of the day was modified from a Brad Paisley quote I found: “Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”

We went around and shared what we wanted to see written in our personal books this year.  Many of our stories included marriage goals, fitness goals, food goals, family goals, health goals, and most importantly, Queen Bee reminded us to work on giving all our worries over to God this year and trust in our Lord and Savior that things will work out just as He has planned for us during this New Year and beyond.

Here’s to a joy-filled, healthy, and blessed New Year’s, ladies!!!
