Friday Morning Open Thread

What’s up?

Here is a pic of my latest obsession. (I know what you all are thinking: Elisa obsessed with exercising — whaatt?)

I go to boot camp every Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning at 6 am. It’s over at 7 am, I come home and wake up the kids for school. And I. feel. great.

Boot camp is a good mix of cardiovascular exercise and strength training. We do a lot of burpees, sprinting, pull-ups, box jumps and exercises that involve weights or kettle bells. I have found a newfound strength and energy that keeps me going all day — without coffee. (!)

I’m a fan. Have you tried something new lately? It doesn’t have to be exercise-related — if it piques your fancy, please do share!

ICYMI, comedienne Joan Rivers died yesterday at the age of 81. I had no idea she was 81, not surprising considering how often she had — and joked — about undergoing plastic surgery. RIP, Joan.

What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
