My Own Personal Gym

Last night’s sushi dinner was perfect before my kickboxing class. I was a little worried I would get to full,because normally I just eat a light snack before I teach.


I had one small veggie roll, and had a few bites from other rolls that the group had too :) I had one of my boot camp girls come to my class last night, she said she hated me and loved me all at the same time ;)

This morning I was pretty darn proud of myself as soon as the alarm went off I hopped out of bed, got dressed and went straight to the gym for some Jillian, “Making the Cut”, TORTURE workout!!! I love getting to the gym at 5:30am because it is empty!


This is the back weight room that nobody uses, I felt like I was in my own little personal home gym! Jillian’s circuits whipped me this morning. She had me doing 100 lunges,crab walks,mountain climbers,hammer curls, and much more. I haven’t done the 15 minutes of straight cardio that you are supposed to do after the workouts because I always run out of time! Here circuits usually take about 45 minutes+.

Following her plan makes me feel like I have my own personal trainer minus the bills that I would be spending!


One sweaty beast here! You can actually see my car parked out front!


I made a GM this morning with some vanilla yogurt, I normally don’t add in yogurt. I also added in some kale,nanner,almond milk,blueberries,whey protein,flax seed, and PB!


I shall not add in yogurt again, it was too runny! I still drank it of course.


Look what came in the mail!!! I can’t wait to open it :)


On my agenda today:

  • work
  • Clean house
  • stock up fridge for house sitter
  • bake PB bars for camping trip!
  • PACK!
  • Service Project (cleaning for a lady in need) with Thursday night group

Hubby’s Random fact for the day: You’re born with 300 bones, but when you get to be an adult, you only have 206.

Have a Terrific Thursday, see you soon!

whoa that jillian workout looks brutal! I bet you're going to see something amazing results from all of your hard work.

and that's so nice of you to stock your fridge for the person that's house sitting! Very thoughtful.

This may be one of the most bizarre and astounding facts I have heard in a really long time. Who knew. I'm breaking this out as cocktail party conversation this weekend!

Happiness Awaits

That's because some of the bones fuse together. :D Thank you HS anatomy class!

What are crab walks? Greek yogurt helps keep the smoothies on the thicker side.

I think I'm going to have to pickup the Jillian book, the workouts sound right up my alley!

Courtney said...

brandi said...

i always loved it when i get up at 6am during the semester and there is no one at the campus (well except for the prez of my school heh). and that jillian book sounds fantastic, i'm going to have to pick up a copy!

Julie said...

thats awesome that you get the whole gym to yourself!

I have a question about working out that early.. Do you eat anything before ?

And is that bone fact really true!?!


Matt said...

I like running early because no one is out yet :)

Lauren said...

Hey sweet girl! I can't imagine how intense these workouts must be. I finally feel like I am to the point where I can get through the 30 day shred level 3 without much trouble but 45 min of hardcore scares me a bit.

I did try your bootcamp workout and it was AWESOME!!!! Are you going to be posting more of these? I love them!

Hope you are having a great week and I hope its a short one for you!
