20 days in to the Jackie Warner program and I feel like I should be seeing more muscle! I am lifting MUCH heavier per all the advice I’ve gotten…which leads me to when I finish this 30 day program what do you think I should do next? Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred? Or something more intense like the Jamie Eason Live Fit Trainer program? Pilates?
Don’t forget we are now half way through the August Ab Challenge! Today is a rest day, but back at it tomorrow with Day 17 and for every check in on Twitter (#abchallenge) and Facebook you are entered to win a variety pack of Larabars.
As many of you saw on Twitter and FB last week I headed up to Princeton, New Jersey to help out at the Oakley Pro Am Series. I can remember my parents and grandparents watching golf on TV every summer and of course David watches, so I was excited to experience one first hand.
Having attended a few Oakley events, I wasn’t surprised to find that they did it up BIG. The event was at the old mansion of the Johnson & Johnson mistress, the Rolling O lab was there (my fav) and a HUGE raffle of prizes to raise money for Infinite hero.
All of the golfers were treated to a pair of Oakley transition sunglasses. “Between sunrise and sunset, there’s a whole spectrum of possibility, but you can’t take advantage of it unless your vision can adapt.” Being that David is a big golfer and constantly outdoors on his bike…yes I begged the Transitions rep for a pair and she gladly obliged.
David tested them out on our run Thursday evening and it was a great test since it was that weird it’s Florida bright, but cloudy kind of day. You can see in the picture his lenses are lighter than mine because of the transitions technology and us being in lower light conditions. While the sunglasses I brought home are considered specialized for golf (to help with how light comes off the grass etc.) they are clearly great overall sport sunglasses, which means I now know he’s protected when hitting the trails.
Transitions is technically a brand, so if you are looking on the Oakley site you will find them under the fancy pants name of Photochromatic Sungalsses.
