Plans this weekend besides doing some exercises from Scouting for Girls; Official Handbook of the Girl Scouts (1920)? Why not learn to make GIFs for the DPLA’s GIF IT UP contest! The recent workshop we participated in has been posted to YouTube. Be sure to check out part 1 if you don’t have Photoshop, and take a look at the workshops page on DPLA to find links to more resources.

The GIF IT UP contest runs from October 1 to October 31, so warm up, GIF makers! Consider making something spooky and tagging it #PageFrights, too. I expect good things from you.

Today’s dinner, was dying for a tuna melt or a bowl of cheesy chips. But i stuck with what i had planned :)

Glute and Hamstring Extension

Start standing, leaning forward on a back extension pad, with your toes turned out, knees bent (like a frog). Keeping your back flat, bend at your hips as far down as possible. To come up, push your thighs into the pad and squeeze your glutes, keeping your back straight the entire time. At the top, give your glutes an extra squeeze. Use a controlled tempo during the exercise: aim for a 2-3 second count on the way down, 1-2 seconds on the way up.
