don't forget we have Hip Hop for KIDS tonight at 6:15!
Perform the following on the minute, each minute for 15 minutes:
These will be plenty hard with just body weight thrusters if you don't have any dumbbells. The goal is to finish the "work" during the first 30-35 seconds, resting the last half of the minute. I did this at the gym with 15# DBs and it was really tough, especially since my body was pretty sore from the previous 2 days of working out. If you choose to use no weight, be sure to "mimic" the movement your hands/arms would make during the thrusters.
Each of the following 5 Rounds has a 4:00 time limit, the remainder of which is used to execute as many repetitions as possible for the prescribed movement.
400m Run / Max Reps x Wallball (20/14lbs)
400m Run / Max Rep x Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75/65lbs)
400m Run / Max Rep x push ups
400m Run / Max Rep x Push Press (75/65lbs)
400m Run /max reps walking lunges
finisher...10 cleans then sprint
9 cleans then sprint
etc…..until you get to 1 clean then sprint...ohh, I can't wait to do this one!!!
How to Beat Emotional Eating
I found this great piece of information from
Are you an Emotional Eater?
Do your feelings drive your appetite and your eating behavior?
Do you eat when you are not hungry?
Do you continue to eat when you are full?…stuffed?…about to explode?
Do you ever find yourself on the couch with your hand at the bottom of a LARGE bag of chips?
Do you eat like this while you are alone?
When you are bored?
When you are stressed?
To take your mind off of your problems?
Do you feel guilty about this behavior?
Then you are an Emotional Eater.
You’re not alone.
Janet Jackson and Britney Spears are celebrity examples of Emotional Eaters
So What Do I Do?
If you think that your manner of eating may constitute a threat to your health, please contact your doctor.
And here is some solid reference info:
Wikipedia lists 25 different types of eating disorders
Medscape has a good Eating Disorder Resource Centre
The Canadian National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) has lots of info & resources
The Mayo Clinic
What Do I Do Right Now?!
One tool you should look into right away is Mindful Eating.
Here are some links to mindful eating sites.

In the past few years, the practice of mindful eating has grown out of the more generalized psychiatric practice of Mindfulness Meditation, made popular by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
It finds it’s origin in Buddhist teachings. The Buddhist practice of Mindfulness can be defined as “awareness of one’s thoughts, actions or motivations”.
A similar practice is currently being espoused by Oprah’s protege, Mr. Eckhart Tolle.
TLC’s – I Can Make You Thin with Paul McKenna employed mindful eating in it’s weight loss plan.
In the 1920’s, Horace Fletcher was the diet guru of the day with his theory of Fletcherizing.
Mindful Eating – The Basics
Eat consciously. By this I mean:
Take a bite of food
Put down your implements/sandwich/glass/etc…
Chew your food
Taste your food
Enjoy your food
Repeat until you ‘think’ you are starting to feel full
Eat again when you are hungry – not bored or nervous – listen for a ‘grumbly tummy’
