Those Things With The Word “America(n)”

It’s Thursday. You know what that means. Please check out my weekly blog group, comprised of a fantastic group of ladies who will dazzle you with insight on various topics.  After reading my post, check out their blogs as well. Just click on:

Froggie (Tracey): One frog’s distinct voice on the world around her.

Merry Land Girl (Melissa): Tales of a suburban mom who likes to talk about pop culture, books, Judaism, family, friendship and anything else that comes to mind.

Mom Of Many (Susanna): One Mom’s perspective on life, raising kids, knitting and other unrelated topics.

First off, Happy Fourth, everyone!

For this week’s topic, Melissa chose: Talk about something with the word “America(n)” in it.

I didn’t really have any on particular idea in my head, so I decided to Google “America”. Here’s what I found:

AMERICA. THE BAND. 

AMERICAN AIRLINES.

AMERICA MAGAZINE.

AMERICAN APPAREL.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT.

BANK OF AMERICA.

FEEDING AMERICA: HUNGER RELIEF CHARITY.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION.

AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION.

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.

THIS AMERICAN LIFE.

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY.

AMERICAN FARMLAND TRUST.

MATHEMATICAL ASSOCIATION of AMERICA.

AMERICAN IDOL.

The best picture. Ever.

Celebrate America today- have a fantastic and safe 4th of July!

Workout today:

Deck of cards workout! This time, I have a partner joining me- my husband. I asked him what he’d like to do, and here’s what we came up with:

Ace: 30 mountain climbers

King: 30 second Heismanns

Queen: 30 second run in place

Jack: 20 forward-back kicks

Joker: 50 sit ups

Hearts: Planks with leg lift (the number on the card is how many times you alternate the lifting leg behind you while planking)

Diamonds: Bear crawls (go forward the length of a room or yard; do however many the number on the card tells you to do)

Clubs: Traveling push ups (travel two spaces to one side, do a push up. That counts as one. Travel to the other side two spaces, do another push up. That’s two.)

Spades: Squat twists

Draw the card from the deck, and do as it says! Go as quickly as you can- it’s a great work out!

Went on a 10-mile bike ride afterwards, too!
