Actually I've been eating a lot of eggs and oatmeal during the fridge down time. Oh that reminds me so apparently eggs don't need to be refrigerated if you are going to use them within like 4 days or so. Sounds nuts right? I thought so too - but in the stores here, eggs are not refrigerated so I looked it up online. Apparently egg shells are a special supa dupa force-field against bacteria and other bad stuff. I still keep them in the fridge just cause I'd rather be safe than sorry if the force field has a crack and I dont know it.
Anyways, some guys came and fixed the fridge today - they took the whole thing apart and some how got it working with just like 2 tools - a hammer and a blow dryer. so freaking resourceful in these parts!
Speaking of resourceful...I meant to show you photos of the most amazing DIY home gym ever. Dominic is our friend that works at Kenyaways Kite Village - the place we stay at the coast. There are some staff quarters by the house and Dominic wanted to show us the gym he put together there. Him and I talk about working out a lot - it's his favorite topic...and sort of mine too - so we enjoy each other. He hasn't really been exposed to a much - he's very simple and quiet but when you start talking about working out - he get's pretty excited. I show him body weight moves from all my little DVDs and bodyrock.com - and he goes on long runs with Sergio - the guy is OBSESSED with working out. It's seriously what he lives for. He told me "Lenna, if I don't do work out one day, I am very sad". So, this other guy Alex, took us over to see Dominics gym:
|He filled the bottom of 5 gallon water jugs with concrete to make one barbell and used concrete in some mold for the other. The bench was just made of wood.|
|and a couple of free weights|
Some of the staff's families live there and there were lots of kids hanging around since there was no school that day
|The baby on the little girls back was so cute but was not so into us ..the other kids were like freaking out and everyone wanted to be up in the camera.|
|The kid with the orange shirt had the cutest face with the funniest expression. Real cutie.|
|Love how kids out here are so together - i mean they all take care of each other. It's such a great thing. They are raised to take care of each other from a very very early age. There are like 5 and 6 year olds taking care of the baby.|
Okay, that's it! Let me know if you have any ideas for resourceful DIY gym equipment - I'm without a gym right now so I'm trying to mix it up as much as possible.
