3/2/11 400 @*!&#$% Burpees!
This is the most BAD ASS workout I may have ever done and I only made it to 300 and it took me over an hour! Fawne threw-up at 200. Thank goodness I did this one at home because with all the crying, moaning, groaning and laughter, people at the gym would have had me committed. I would love for some of my followers to try it and let me know what you think???
3/21/11 550 Rep Fat Massacre
I have a special place in my heart for this workout, this workout marks the beginning of the end. I did this workout while on vacation in Hawaii, where my "Aha" moment happened. In the island heat I worked out on the LaNai in a sports bra. My reflection in the window was not fun to watch jiggle around as I completed this workout. I had to modify the exercises and it probably took about 45 minutes to complete. I couldn't walk for 2 day. 3 months later I was excited to do this workout again and see change. OMG I completed the workout in 28:57 min, in the mirror I could see definition in my arms and the muscles that showed during side plank made me giddy! I still had to modify some of the walking push ups, I am babying a sore shoulder. This time around I am still sore in my hammies but also in my abs. 5 STARS
Every Tuesday: PILATES
As Zen as I get! It feel so good to be back. Body Awareness and flow like stretching and strength training amazing! Also it was a huge eye opener about how tight all the strength training is making me and in 4 small weeks I am quickly regaining my flexibility!
2/15/11 Hot Mess
I <3 this workout, the variety kept me interested and I focused on form. In lieu of a sandbag I used a 15lbs soft bar. Pay attention to the instructions to ensure correct reps and sets.
First- 24.05 min
Second- 23.39 min * the time improvement is a statement to my increasing endurance!
Hit the treadmill for 10 min.

The note I wrote down was, "Holy Hell Dripping Sweat".
1/16/11 Hot Curves and Swimming in Sweat
Jenna was my workout partner today... Hot Curves was a great workout but Swimming in Sweat made it look like child's play. 155 Burpees, intervaled with a 17 lbs sandbag swings and no rest. We earned our weekend at that point!
