To celebrate Mia Hamm’s 600th post, the stupid Q decided to make everyone do burpees until we had a collective 600 burpees completed.  Unfortunately, 600 PAX didn’t show up so they had to be divided between the 8 that did.


Motivators from 7

Arm Circles

Arm Circles reversed

Seal Claps

Overhead Claps

The Thang

7 Sets of 11 burpees and then a loop around the parking lot.

Then when the Q found out there was still 20 minutes left, he started naming as many exercises as his addled brain could remember and then added some more loops around the parking lot:

One-legged Curls (w coupon) x 2

Kardashian Date Nights (hip thrusts with coupons)


Goblet Squats

Big Boy Situps x 2

Little Boy Crunches


Circle of Trust

Part 1:  We live in a world now that prizes data over information.  Data, random facts, is knowledge that is entirely useless to our lives (corn cobs were used before toilet paper) whereas information is applied data.  Given the amount of data getting thrown at us so frequently, we need to be wary of what we focus on and what are our priorities.

Part 2:  Never let a leader slow you down.  Just because he or she is your leader, doesn’t mean you need to limit yourself to their ability.  Keep pushing forward and find your own limitations, not theirs.

Today, the Q was his own 6 most of the morning.
