Want to workout like Carrie? Follow this workout plan below at least three times a week. Cardio: Carrie runs, jabs, hooks, and kicks her way to cardio fitness. Kickboxing is a great way to see results and release stress. Strength Training: Back Lunges with a Bicep Curl - While holding free weights, do a single leg, back lunge. From a standing position, step backwards towards the ground making sure your front knee does not push forward over the toe. Dropping into a deep lunge, begin to come back into a standing position while also doing a bicep curl. Note: By combining upper body and lower body moves, the body burns more calories. Do 15 for each leg for 2 to 3 sets. Front Lunges with a Torso Twist- Holding a medicine ball step forward into a front lunge. While in a lunge position, hold the medicine ball out in front of the body and twist sideways, keeping the medicine steady. Twist back to the front and stand, bringing the feet together and lowering the medicine ball. Note: Twist in the direction of the lunge. (If you lunge with your right leg, twist towards the right.) This move works your core, shoulders, and legs. Jump Squats: One of the best ways to “force your body to change” is to add plyometric or dynamic moves into your routine. Squat (as if you are going to sit into a chair while keeping your torso straight), from the squat position, JUMP into the air as high as you can, landing back into the squat position. Repeat for 20-25 reps. Great for the glutes, hamstrings, and it also gets your heart rate up. Prone Bridge on a stability ball- As if you are lying down, place your bent elbows on the stability ball with your body completely straight behind you, belly down, feet on the floor, balanced on your toes. Balance yourself (stick straight) and hold yourself for as long as you can. If you don’t have a stability ball you can do the same move on the ground. Works your entire core! Remember to warm up prior to strength training with a 5 to 10 minute cardio segment and stretch at the end of your workout.
Knee Tuck Push Ups......someday! from www.PTworkout.com ~ "Similar to Mountain Climbers in motion, this exercise will engage your abdominals while working your chest, triceps and legs. Starting from the pushup “ready” position, inhale as you bend your elbows to lower your chest until it grazes the ground, then immediately extend your arms and exhale while pulling your right knee forward to your chest while keeping your left leg stable. After you complete your ascent to the “ready” position, extend your right leg behind you and return your foot to the ground as you lower your chest back to the ground. Repeat in reverse on the other side."

Exercise for the muscle that pulls in the ring of your waist-- One area of your abs you may be neglecting is the transversus abdominus - without working it, you run the risk of developing a square torso (straight up and down) rather than an hourglass one (tapered at the waist). Here’s what you can do along with your usual ab workout: 1. Get on all fours, back straight, looking down. 2. Exhale completely, then hold your breath. 3. Pull your belly toward your spine (“suck in”) as hard as possible for 10 seconds, while continuing to hold your breath. 4. Inhale. Take a few breaths, then repeat 10 times. Later, you’ll probably feel as though you’d been laughing at something REALLY funny. That’s because you worked those same muscles. Enjoy!

Have children create a bracelet using a green bead for the beginning, a red bead for the ending and 3 or more other beads for the middle. As children retell a story have them slide a bead from left to right for the beginning and then another bead for each story component. With younger children I would use three detail (middle beads) however, you may wish to increase the number with older students.

25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
