I’m still kickin it

Oh heyyyy you guys! So just in case you were wondering I’m still alive and kicking it. Sorry I have been so sketchy! I need to make this blog more of a priority because I made it to keep myself accountable and I’m not even using it! Not that I’ve been falling off the bandwagon but just maybe I may be slacking compared to how I should be!

So let me try and update you a little! Last I spoke I was trying out the Jillian Michael’s DVD Shed and Shred. Although, the last DVD I didn’t give the most positive reviews I must say this one did indeed kick my butt! I did start off with the advanced level and it did require weights also but even without it I was still sweating my lil heart out!

Not the highest calorie burn but I’m sure if done with weights it would be much higher and good thing about the DVD is that if the routine gets easy you can always up your weights. I may even wind up purchasing this for an at home work out!

As far as my personal life goes I’ve been quite busy with work and life in general.

My best friend Teran asked me to be her maid of honor! I am so excited for them and this is my first wedding to be in so it will be fun! I know this means life will not be slowing down anytime soon but I will make sure to continue to fit in my workouts and make it happen an stay healthy. I am determined!

I can’t and won’t cancel!

Try and try again

So I last posted about trying out Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. All I can say is..bad. Let this picture explain.

Yeah..what an impressive calorie burn.Not. I was expecting a bit more from the “toughest trainer”. The DVD would probably be excellent for a beginner but it was mostly just basic work outs. Also, your expected to already have dumb bells so if you don’t your already limited to about half the work out.

Even though that DVD was a disappointment I’m still out looking for something that I will like. These hot summer days are killing my outside work outs and the gym after work is no bueno because that’s when about half the town decides to go.

This is my new motivational quote I found. I have it posted as my phone background as inspiration to push through those tough work outs! Speaking of tough today was the dreaded leg dayyyy.

Here’s a pic of me fake smiling because I just completed leg day and 40 minutes of HIIT. (Hence the sweat) Looking cute I know. Got some new DVDs to try out for this afternoon so hopefully better luck this time!

Inspiration and switching things up

Hey guys! Just thought I would drop on by and share some motivation for you.

Speaking of running it’s been an average of 100 degrees here soooo running has been a little difficult lately. For my afternoon cardio I’m trying to switch things up a bit. Just got Jillian Michaels 30 day shred today to try out! I know she is a kick ass trainer so hopefully she kicks my ass! We shall see!
