I can’t believe we’re already half way through the Elf 4 Health challenge. Time sure flies! I had an awesome elf for the first round, Suzanne from Hello Veggy. Check out her recap of our two weeks together here. I’ll be sad to lose Suzanne as an elf, but I suppose it’s time to see what other elves are in the shop. It’s not you, Suzanne. It’s not even me – it’s just the way the cookie crumbles (points if you can name that movie!)
…unsubscribed from over 161 email subscriptions using unroll.me (highly recommend it), and had a sweaty blast (that sounds gross, but it was fun) with a new workout I call “Sweat with the Suits.” Basically, you assign a move to each suit (i.e. diamonds = jumping jacks, clubs = lunges, etc) and draw cards at random. Whatever number and suit are shown, do that many of that move. So if you draw the 9 of diamonds, that’s 9 jumping jacks. Keep going until you go through the whole deck! Poker will never be the same again. Now everyone will know your hand based on the workout you start doing. Maybe you should keep your workout and your poker game separate, for your bank account’s sake.
I treated myself to some online shopping. Do you guys know Modcloth? I’m obsessed, and I apologize because now you will be obsessed. Say goodbye to that Christmas bonus. On a side note, did you get a Christmas bonus? Yea? Why don’t you come play poker with me. The only rule is that you have to do the Sweat with Suits workout for every hand. Not me, just you. Then I’ll go spend your Christmas bonus on Modcloth. Cool? You’re the best.
Anyway, I did the 100 burpee challenge (ouch!), wrote a bunch of handwritten notes for some coworkers that I’m leaving behind :(, and ate the rainbow!
I went make-up free (yikes!)…
… got my boyfriend to do the Sweat with the Suits workout with me (Side note, we did jump squats AND lunges. I am currently walking like Forrest Gump with his leg braces on. It’s not pretty.), spread the love with Operation Beautiful, and made a gratitude list.
My awesome elf also sent me some treats from Canada! I’m going to light the maple-scented candle whilst eating that chocolate bar and listening to sad breakup music in memory of my former elf, Suzanne.
Although we’ve come to the end of the road
Still I can’t let go
It’s unnatural, you belong to me, I belong to youuuuuuu
Thanks for being an exceptional elf, Suzanne!
