Saturday Surfing, July 28th, 2018

Raising the roof, embarrassing my child… All in a day’s work.

Good morning, guys. Before we get to Saturday Surfing, I just wanted to say that if you or anyone you know is affected by the Carr Fire in Shasta County, we’re thinking of you here at Casa MBB. As you know, my in-laws lived in Redding for years (they moved back to Hawaii two months ago), and we still have family there. Stay safe.

Right now I have ramen noodles instead of arms.

Please note that this 👆 (in the pic at the top) is the lamest raising of roofs ever, but this is how far up my arms go now because my upper body is toast. In HIIT class the other night, I tried — tried being the key word here — doing some pull-ups, and now I’m so sore that in order to dress myself this morning, I had to bend over and do a weird shimmy-dive into my shirt because I literally cannot raise my arms.

So, if you were hoping to have someone join you today in throwing your hands up in the air and waving them ’round like you just don’t care, because, ya know, SATURDAY! — normally I’d be totally down, but I’m going to leave you in the lurch for now. Sorry, homie.

Made this for dinner last Wednesday, and it was delicious AND easy.

I’ve recently realized that I’d rather do strength training than cardio any day of the week.

Nobody messes with Saint Stevie!

Of course now I’ve been binge-watching pull-up videos.

Lots of helpful info, but what’s with all the booty slapping? It’s kinda weird, right?

Technically chin-ups, but you know how I feel about Sarah Connor. THOSE ARMS, DAYUM! ❤️

Can you do a pull-up? If you can, you’re super bad-@ss.

On that note, I’m off to go stretch for 10 years.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
