Quick Fix Stability Ball Workout

 

 

If you only have 30 minutes and want an effective Core workout, this is the DVD for you. It’s split up into three 10 minute segments targeting specific body parts. Part 1 is for the lower body, part 2 is upper (need some handweights), and part 3 is abdominals and back. You can do one, two or all three segments. I dig it 🙂

Movie recommendation: Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

July 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Funny, snarky, insightful… had all the great elements, in my opinion. For those that don’t know, it’s a behind the scenes documentary detailing Conan’s “Legally Prohibited Tour”.

 
Conan rules, but we already knew this.

Movie recommendation: Blood Into Wine

July 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Blood into Wine is a documentary about a winemaking partnership between Maynard James Keenan (Lead singer (and all around badass) for Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer), and Eric Glomski. It’s interesting because it gives a rare glimpse into MJK away from the music scene, as well as the winemaking process itself. Comedic relief is interspered throughout (Tim and Eric, and Bob Odenkirk to name a couple of jokesters), and the odd celebrity cameo here and there.

It’s on Netflix Streaming Instantly. Check out the trailer:

Why I will never buy a Jeep again

July 28, 2011 Leave a comment

I’ve owned several Jeeps over the years. This one in particular (Liberty) I’ve owned since 2004. In the last two years three window regulators failed. Today I’m at the dealership getting one of them replaced AGAIN.

Jeep, I’m sure you have geeks crawling cyberspace looking for posts mentioning your vehicles. Well listen up. Start using better parts. Having to replace a regulator multiple times is unacceptable. The next vehicle my husband and I are planning to buy next year will not be a Jeep, I can tell you that much. And that’s because I’ve been a loyal customer for almost 10 years. Never again.

Five Star? Yeah, right.

Epic-ness

Humans are not the only creatures to achieve epic-ness.

Consider the canine:

This pooch truly rules.

 

How can anyone even remotely try to follow that up?

While you ponder that, I will share Jen’s Song of the Day. An oldie but a goodie:
