Burpees, squats, lunges, and diamond push ups, OH MY!!!

To start off, I never bring my phone in the gym. This is my "me" time and I'm not concerned about anything or anyone but myself. I am my only concern at this time. With my new schedule, on Mondays and Wednesdays, I will be spending at least 2 hours at the gym. I thought it would be fun to show what my "me" time looks like. Here is what they look like:

I start off by spending 15 minutes (will slowly move to 25 minutes) with my long time best friend (maybe your worst enemy).

I move on to my acquaintance and spend 10-15 minutes here (it really works the back of my legs...right where I need it).

Next comes some of my favorite time...mat work. I love the bender ball. I sometimes work with a medicine ball, but they were all taken tonight. Oh well, I got everything I needed to do done here in 20 minutes (3 reps).

Tonight was a special night. I would usually be getting my legs toughened up (aka lifting weights), but tonight I was getting my body fat tested. It was right where I wanted it. I will have it tested at the end of summer (aka: when I have my six pack abs). I think the guy taking the "pinches" was hitting on me or something. He said I was average for the body fat percentage, but my body was more than average (with a huge smile). He must not have seen my wedding rings (it was nice, though).

After waiting for the test to be done, it was time to really get ripped. It is such a difficult class. About every 3-5 weeks, the instructor changes up the routine. I love the one we did today. We usually do a ton of squats and lunges. We exchanged those with burpees. Oh joy (sarcasm)!!!! There were burpees, squats, lunges, and diamond push ups oh my!

Last night was day one of my summer of abs. Everything I did really worked my abs. I always try to use my core when I step up the stairs, or lift weights. I am determined!

What do your workouts look like?

I just signed up for the Color Run 5k in Sacramento. Anyone else running it?


  1. Sounds like you had a great workout! Keep up the good work. Burpees are an all time favorite exercise of mine.

  2. That's a great looking routine. I don't know if I could ever spend that long at a gym.

  3. I plan to have a 6pack summer as well. Shiner to be exact


    Youre going to rock this summer!
