I have a somethin’ special for you guys in this post – a video! I’ve never made a video of myself for a blog before, so this is big for me, haha. However, after seeing a bunch of my favourite bloggers participating in the “accent vlog” I wanted to join in on the fun.
Anyway, the way it works is that there’s a list of words and questions you are supposed to answer on the video to demonstrate your ‘accent’. The list of words is below the video.
Now before you watch, a few things MUST be said: (a) apparently I am super awkward on video! ha! (b) I still go by my real name, just not in the blog world, (c) for some reason the video/sound are out of sync. No se. Sorry. (d) YouTube has this INCREDIBLE ability to freeze frame you in the most disgusting/terrible of shots. See below.
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
Ashely’s Added on words: Pillow, Toothpick, Milk, Eggs
My add-on: Process
Hope you enjoy….and post your own!
Now back to your regular programming…
My workout was pretty unexciting. I was feeling run down (probably due to lack of sleep this week) and actually kind of hungry/low blood sugar. Ah well.
Deadlifts – 3 sets of 10 @ 90 lbs
Dumbbell Shoulder Press – 1 set of 10 @ 20lbs (each arm), 1 set of 9 @ 20 lbs, 1 set of 8 @ 20lbs
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown – 1 set of 10 @ 65 lbs, 2 sets of 9 @ 65 lbs
Lunge – 3 sets of 10 @ 25 lbs (each arm)
Swiss ball crunch – 2 sets of 12 with 15lbs, 1 set of 15 with 15 lbs
AND I thought it would be fun to add in some of April’s legendary hip thrusts:
Hip Thrusts – 3 sets of 12 @ 25 lbs
Anyway, thanks to all of you for your helpful ideas with sleeping issues! I’ve been incorporating a few of them and although I haven’t slept a lot more over the past few days (usually because of scheduling), my sleep throughout the night has been a lot smoother.
Have a good weekend! I’ll probably be back updating tomorrow.
Edited to add:
This is the M.I.A song I refer to in the video:
She’s so hot.
