We’ve all been there. You’re traveling and if trying to find healthy food choices isn’t challenging enough, your hotel gym is the pits. So what do you do? Often nothing. Well, a lot of you will be traveling in the weeks to come, perhaps heading home for Christmas, and maybe even for the Thanksgiving Long Weekend coming up. You’re going to be stuffing your faces with delicious food and may feel like working out, but not know how to make it happen.
In this week’s tip, Mike demonstrates four exercises that you can do in a circuit, using your body weight – meaning you don’t need any equipment to complete these exercises. Here they are:
Do each exercise for 30 seconds with a 10 second break in between, and do the whole circuit three times.
What in the world did this girl’s friends say to coax her into this compromising situation? More importantly, how much liquor did this chick consume to agree to it? What a ridiculously stupid beyotch. This could’ve gone horribly wrong.. for the dryer. Who cares about the silly ho.
Luckily for her, no matter how drunk she is, she’s able to somewhat hold her composure. I have to give her credit for remaining calm, considering her dilemma. Had it been me, I would’ve been hyperventilating and freaking out big time. Just watching her work her way out of the dryer makes me claustrophobic and full with anxiety. Not only did her friends talk her into performing this insane drunken act, but they also laugh at her, filmed it and even poked her butt. Sadistic hookers. If I was there, I would’ve tumble dried her ass. LOL.
So I finally wrapped up the penultimate novel from Stieg Larsson’s trilogy series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I have to admit that I am extremely happy that I persevered through this series after my initial, rather negative reaction to the first book in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. As of late I have opened my mind to alternative subject matter and challenged myself to read on through subjects that often stun me emotional, or cause me to recoil due to the graphic nature of the simple words on paper. Granted, it has been a personal challenge inflicted by yours truly; however, I am quite proud of myself for pushing my comfort levels and coming out on the other side a changed man.
Dramatic words, yes, but not far fetched when considering the tone of voice and series of events that unfold in this third novel of the series. Over the course of the last few books I’ve read I would constantly cast my glaze to the stack of books awaiting my attention that included Larsson’s final piece of literature. I was desperate to learn what beheld Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist on this seemingly final venture. The constant barrage of men hating men (and women), savage bodily harm and murderous rage oozed through every page, sentence after sentence and for once I was able to channel my curiosity to make it through to the final chapter. For those of you not familiar with the storyline of this trifecta of brilliance, beware it is not for the faint of heart.
A while back, I shared with you some advice for teen girls from The Little Mermaid. Now, The Second City Network is back with another amazeballs video teaching teen girls some more important life lessons. This time, Snow White shares some life lessons based on her experiences.
From living with the seven dwarfs, to cooking & cleaning, to dealing with the evil witches, Snow White always knows just what to do. The video stars Second City grad, Danielle Uhlarik. Watch out for this funny lady – she’s hilarious and I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up seeing her as part of the SNL cast soon.
Next weekend in Edmonton, Alberta the 98th Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup game will be a repeat showdown of the Montreal Alouettes and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. A better swan song couldn’t be written for the underdog Roughriders, given the chance for redemption following last’s year Grey Cup devastating last-second loss to the Alouettes. If you follow CFL at all, you’ll remember the legendary too-man-men-on-the-field call that has haunted the Roughriders throughout the year.
In last year’s Grey Cup final Saskatchewan was in the lead 27-25 when Montreal lined up to kick a final field goal, what was to be the last play of the game. In an unreal turn of events, the field goal was wide and it looked as though Saskatchewan had clinched their fourth Grey Cup win in franchise history. Unknown to celebrating Roughriders on the sidelines, penalty flags had been tossed as the ball was kicked. The Roughrider’s had thirteen men on the field; one too many. The Alouettes were given a second chance to kick the field goal, this time Damon Duval sent the football through the uprights. The final score was 28-27 in favour of Montreal.
Thanva Tivawong redesigns one of the most iconic & ubiquitous street signs in the world. The “Sand Glass” which is inspired by the hour glass has LED lights that display a trickling down effect that shows how much time is left for the lights to change. The yellow light features a countdown timer, when the yellow light is on telling people when to stop or to get ready to go.
See how it works on the next part of the post.
If you think watching Paranormal Activity 2 is scary enough, try living it! This young boy from Kingston, Jamaica is been haunted by a ghost or demon that is physically pushing him around – and it is caught on video by CVM News. The boy claims that the ghost is a friend that died a few years ago and has started appearing to him recently out of nowhere.
Not gonna lie, it really creeped me out. He’s been dubbed “Duppy Boy,” as Duppy is a Jamaican Patois word of West African origin meaning ghost or spirit. There has been a lot of buzz in his community about the encounters and the news stopped by to check it out, only to witness it first hand – twice…
Ever since its midnight release, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” has been conjuring up some wicked dough at the box office. If it holds the momentum of the first couple days, this could be a record breaking weekend for the magical franchise. What a perfect way to say good-bye to one of the most successful series of movies ever.
If you can’t get enough of Harry Potter this weekend and want a little laugh after watching the darkest installment of the series yet, then have I got the video parody for you. Julia Bentley aka HoneyChip hails from T-Dot, Canada. She masterfully switched up the lyrics to Flo Rida & David Guetta’s hit song to give it a more Harry Potter feel. Here’s some sample lyrics:
Check my scar and they all just stare? / wizards, muggles, everywhere!? / Kill Voldy that’s the business? / All out it’s so ridiclous? / Death eaters at attention / Don’t tell I’m in the building
Had enough build-up. If you’re a Potterhead and love Flo Rida, then you’ll be heaven. Enjoy the parody below.
