WH WEEKEND CHALLENGE: Russian Twists
Everybody twist! This week, we’re focusing on abs. This move targets all of your abdominal muscles, with an emphasis on your obliques.
Pick which version you feel most comfortable with and do 3 sets of 8 reps before every meal this weekend. So, are you in?
(P.S. Here’s an arm workout, for anyone looking for a new one.)
Scales should be happy like this one.
Inspirational Motivational of the Day: Sami Stoner loves to run. When the Lexington, Ohio teen was diagnosed with Stargardt disease — an inherited juvenile macular degeneration — she knew she would soon be declared legally blind, and her parents thought that part of her life was over.
But tenacious Sami wouldn’t give up, launching an effort to convince the state to let her and her guide dog Chloe join her school’s cross country team.
With the help of Athletic Director John Harris and head coach Denise Benson, Sami eventually managed to obtain a precedent-setting waiver from the Ohio High School Athletic Association, allowing her to run with Chloe. ”As I told John, she already has a handicap,” said OHSAA’s cross country director Dale Gabor. “She doesn’t need another one, so let her run.”
Sami was put on a 20-second delay to prevent Chloe from tripping other runners. And she is only allowed to participate as a non-scoring competitor. Still, it’s a start.
And Sami couldn’t be happier.
“I don’t run for time or place or anything,” she said. “I run because I love it.”

Good reminder, though we don’t think people have to work out every single day.
