Congrats to my two trivia buffs! Glenn was the first to correctly guess that yesterday’s post title was a reference to Dr. Strangelove–50 points to you– and lostartpublishing was the first to correctly guess the answer to the deep six trivia question: to dispose of by throwing over the side–100 points to you.
I can’t take it any more! I should confess before they bring out the comfy chair and things get really bad… *diabolical music plays in the background* Alright, I did it (or rather didn’t do it)! I didn’t finish my workout from yesterday! Before you jump to conclusions and assume (correctly, I might add) that I was just being lazy, I’ll have you know that I was busy and the night was over before I knew it. The day was not totally lost, however. I did manage to do the sit up workout before I went to bed. To atone for my sin of heresy against the church workout schedule, I’ve decided to fit in the Body Rock workout from yesterday into today’s routine. If you have no idea what inspired the melodramatic confession seen above, then you obviously haven’t seen the Monty Python sketch “The Spanish Inquisition.” Prepare to be enlightened.
Sit up workout details (Day 2, second column):
21, 28, 21, 21, 28; performed with 60 second break between reps
Some of you are probably wondering where the trivia question is. I will include a new Navy trivia question in tonight’s post, so make sure to check back in later. I promise that tonight will not be a repeat of last night’s fiasco; I will do my exercises and write a new post like the fate of the world depends on its completion. See you then!
P.O.E.: Peace on Earth and Purity of Essence. 100 points to Sue for providing the answer! For those of you who have no idea what all of this means, I genuinely feel sorry for you because that means you’ve been deprived of one of the best movies of all time, “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” I mean, seriously, go find a copy and watch it NOW! “Dr. Strangelove” is one (there are many) of the movies from which I quote quite a bit in day-to-day conversation, so it’s very important that the people in my life understand these obscure references when they arise.
Today’s workout was the last of Week 1 for the Two Hundred Sit Ups program, the details of which can be seen below.
Sit up workout details (Day 3, first column):
6, 7, 6, 6, 26; performed with 60 second break between reps
I just noticed that I accidentally followed the first column instead of the usual second, so today’s numbers will be lower than normal.
Apart from doing my scheduled workout I also got my hair cut again. It’s a bit shorter than what I wanted/expected, but I think I like it. I’ll probably let it grow out and cut it again (but not as much) in early August before I ship off to boot camp. Enough talk about my hair, I guess I should show you a picture already :)
I should have just kept it like that, right?
What do you think? I still have to play around with it to find a style I like.
It’s not the best picture to showcase my new hair cut, but that’s all I’ve got right now. I’ll make sure to post a better one when it comes along. I almost forgot to mention that I learned a nifty styling trick from Melissa (the lady who usually cuts my hair) at the salon. Since I won’t be able to take my own hair products to boot camp, she suggested that I use a penny size amount of lotion (if the Navy gives me lotion, that is), as a replacement for gel/styling wax, to tame my hair after a shower. I would never have thought to put lotion in my hair, but I’m sure that the tip will come in handy if/when my hair becomes unruly. Tomorrow’s post will cover the last push up workout for Week 1 and another acronym guessing game that’s a bit easier than P.O.E.–make sure to check in again! In the meantime, have you ever cut your hair really short before? Any tips on styling (besides lotion) without any products?
