Friday’s Final Thoughts

TGIF!

With the 2012 holiday hustle and bustle in high gear, there aren’t always enough hours in the day to come up with original material for my blog. So, I hope you’ll forgive my ending this particular work week with what I hope will be a little comic relief and some borrowed words for motivation.

First, thanks to my colleague and friend Valerie for this one:

Burpee picture

For those of you who aren’t sure why the above definition holds true, here’s an encore presentation of the quick video I posted over the summer showing what the burpee looks like in action:

Finally, I offer a few words from some famous folks that I hope will motivate you to conquer burpees and all the other “tough stuff” life can throw at you:

“All things ar difficult before they are easy.”-Thomas Fuller

“If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.” -Vince Lombardi

“The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.” -Roger Bannister

And finally, I figured this was the perfect quote to end a Friday post:

 “Always so sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”-Ernest Hemingway

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and plenty of chances to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!

  1. I have a sick sort of love for Burpees, and I don’t know why 🙂 Also, love that Hemingway quote, one of my favorites, and so appropriate for this time of year!

    • Hi Stephanie, Thanks for chiming in – and I’m glad I’m not the only one with a sort of “twisted” relationship with burpees! Congrats again on passing your exam – way to go! Here’s to a great week ahead.
