Yay!! One week down, 7 to go… ugh! Ok so just to switch it up, and to save myself a bit of time, I’ve decided to include the mini-workouts for weeks 2 and 3 in a single blog post. That way, if you want to alternate between them over the next two weeks, or even pair them together for a longer workout, you can do that! Try to incorporate week 1‘s mini-workout into the rotation as well! So, just to recap the first week… I feel good after making time for 3 workouts.
First off, I just want to thank all of you who are willing to take this 8-week fitness challenge with me! At least 45 of you have followed up to say that you are “in”, which makes me so happy đ™‚This fitness challenge is all online, so you can do it from anywhere. The commitment isÂ three workouts a week, for two months, starting May 1st. To help us out, my friend and fitness trainer Carrie Habinski has put together 8 mini-workouts for the 8-week challenge.
I’ll definitely go tomorrow. If not tomorrow, the day after. At the latest, Monday. But then Monday comes and I still haven’t exercised. I’m tired of sitting idle. The flat “mom ass” has got to go! And so does my attitude about working out in general…I tend to be all in, or all out. If I can’t go hard and consistently, then there’s no point. If I don’t have a full hour to sweat, then forget it. It’s not a good mindset to have when you’re a busy mom with two kids!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
