Shirt Exchange and other stuff

So, there is this awesome chicka named Heather who lives in the Pacific Northwest. Anyway, she is my blogging friend, who one day I hope to meet in real life. Well, we were talking on facebook and decided amongst ourselves to do a shirt swap. It all started because she loves my running club's logo...

I then asked her if she wanted one, and that is when we developed this swap. I had hoped to build this awesome package and well, I failed miserably on my end. I ended up sending her a shirt and my infamous "Doubt is a Skanky Wuss" so she could hang it up in a place that she could see. It's OK, I have plans to make her random care packages, especially when she needs one the most (I hear she has a marathon coming up ;) ) Well, my loot came yesterday, but because of my new work schedule, they were closed. I got it today, and let me tell you, she out did herself. 

That shirt says "Pints to Pasta" and now I want to go run it and want to meet her in real life! Receiving this package makes me kinda miss the Pacific Northwest, especially because I lived in Seattle and lived in an apartment above a Starbucks that delivered. I cannot wait to make more care packages and sending them her way. Who doesn't love getting mail that is not a bill.

Now, onto more fitness related topics. I heard through the grapevine, also known as my fellow #SweatPink Ambassadors, who told me about this awesome August Abs Challenge. You can read about it on facebook here.  The gist of the challenge is as follows:

50 abdominal crunches, ab twists or ANY abdominal exercise of YOUR choice every day of August!!! If you can do more... do more! But I challenge each of YOU to do a MINIMUM of 50 repetitions!!!

Day 1 was a success and I have Bob to thank for that. After each trip up/down the steps we do 10 crunches, therefore we did 100 today. And, speaking of the steps, who needs a sandbag. I had my daughter with me, and while I knew it was going to be difficult,

So, I did just that and I did 8 pf the 10 reps carrying my daughter. And, since I didn't want to hurt myself, I only went half way up the total steps, but half carrying an additional 28 pounds is a huge deal, right? Yeah, I thought so too. What did you do today?
