OH, YES I DID! Check these PANTS out, please...1) shop for badazz summer threads and 2) GET YOUR LOWER BODY WORKOUT ON!
BELOW are two simple 'tried and true' lower body toning moves that you should throw into your routine if you really want to hear "OH, NO SHE DIDN'T" the next time you slip into your fittest 'skinnies' .
ONE. DUMBBELL SUMO SQUAT: Grab a 15-20lb dumbbell and hold one end in each hand at arm's length down in front of your pelvis. Set your feet apart about twice your shoulder width apart, turning your toes out slightly. Lower your body dowwwwwn to the floor while pushing your hips back and bending your knees. Pause for a beat, then rise to starting position. Work up to 3-4 sets of 15.
TWO. STABILITY "STORK" LUNGE: These will work your lower body AND challenge your core/midsection. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Lift your RIGHT knee/foot until your thigh is parallel to the floor (you can rest the inside of your foot on the stable leg if needed). Simultaneously, raise your arms above your head, palms and fingers touching (you will feel like you are doing a version of a yoga pose). Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then, while keeping your arms above, step your RIGHT FOOT out into a right lunge. Pause, then bring your LEFT FOOT forward (step forward) and step up into the stork pose with your LEFT FOOT - wait 5 seconds and step out into a LEFT lunge. Keep alternating like this 10-12 "lunges" each side, 3 sets. Rest and assess in between sets (as always!)
Just a reminder - if you're around tonight and you've already gotten your workout in...

My science lover friends and I got together tonight to talk about bugs (and spiders).
In particular, "non-specific entomological symbiosis in the Amazon."
Insect candies. We're a bunch of hellraisers, lemme tell ya...
My friend Phil (Torres, biologist, 'Spiderman') has spent time in the rainforest. He and his research team discovered this (pictured) new species of arachnid which they named the Cyclosa Decoy, while in Peru.
Yes, it's gross, but super tiny (around 5mm) and will SCULPT - out of leaves, debris and random bug remnants - a larger version of itself (complete with 8 legs) in its web to ward off predators.
Mother Nature, you are perverse. But how I love thee.
