Here is last week’s workout summary.

14 workouts in 7 days….that’s two workouts each day!!! Averaging 2.90 miles per workout and 23.19 minutes per mile, which seems kind of high but I’ve be recording my dog walks which includes a lot of stop and go.

The Big Bang Theory Workout

I can be a bit of a Pinterest addict at times…

There are times when I get pin happy and just pin things like crazy and that I can go weeks without even opening the app on my iPhone. No matter how long I have been away from Pinterest, I still love the app. I love the different projects, recipes, ideas, etc. that one can find on there…there is always inspiration.

I love The Bing Bang Theory, seriously it is my favorite show on TV and I watch it almost every night…I have seen every single episode (excluding the newest season) at least 20 times. I would have to say the only show that I watch more than The Big Bang Theory is Friends.

One of the pins that I pined a while back was the “The Big Band Theory Drinking Game”. When I saw this pin, I thought that would be a lot of fun do with friends, but let’s be honest here I don’t drink at home with friends…like ever. I might go out with friends to have a beer but I don’t generally have friends over to just drink, unless manual labor is involved.

So I thought to myself…

“Lyndsey, how could you still be able to play this game and now have to spend every night drinking alone…”

And I came up with “The Big Band Theory Workout”.

I’ve been doing it for the last couple of days and it’s been a lot of fun. I not only get to watch my favorite show but I also get a decent workout in as well, especially at a time I generally just sit my butt on the couch and do nothing.

Popsicle Stick Fitness Activites

I saw this pin…

It seems like a pretty awesome idea. One could draw a stick or two during commercial breaks while watching TV at night. I personally like workouts that I don’t actually have to plan to workout to do. I do however, enjoy sitting down at night to watch some TV and thought this would be perfect.

I clicked the pin, then clicked again and again but couldn’t seem to find the actual “instructions” or list of workouts that were on the popsicle sticks.

I then decided I could probably come up with my own list…using Pinterest I looked through some workout pins and choose “simple” or “no equipment” needed workouts and grabbed a hand full of the ones that I liked from lots of different workouts.

It’s pretty easy to make these sticks.

Supply List:

  • Popsicle sticks (the thicker ones)
  • Permanent marker
  • 2 plastic cups



  1. Write each of the fitness activities on its own popsicle stick.
  2. Label one cup “Workouts to Do” and the other “Done”.
  3. Place popsicle sticks in the “Workouts to Do” cup.
  4. As you do the workouts place in the “Done” cup.

Pretty much that easy…
