This is my go to leg workout and I tackled it this morning bring and early. There was some grumbling, a few mumbled swear words and a lot of sweat!
I have a love/hate relationship with leg day.
–> I feel so strong and empowered when I’m done
–> It gives me a nice defined legs
–> It challenges me and makes me push through when I want to quit.
–> Stairs and toilets the next day – need I say more.
Give this workout a try and share it with a friend!
My hamstring hurts.
I don’t wanna workout.
But instead of thinking about all of my excuses I replaced them with effort.
I even got lucky and had my girls join me in the workout. Phoebe loves to do PiYo and Winnie and Dixie love to be playful.

Workout Wednesday: Cize: The End of Exercise
Here’s the truth: when I heard about Cize I was skeptical. I didn’t plan on doing it because I’m not a dancer. I didn’t think it would be enough of a workout either.
BUT….I’m so glad I gave it a chance because this is the exact program I needed right now. First, I’m having so much fun. I was in such a workout funk and this program has me excited to “push play”. Second, it’s an amazing workout. I finish feeling absolutely amazing and completely drenched!
Bonus: I’m learning how to dance! Shaun T. breaks down all of the moves step by step and before I know it I’m doing a dance routine!

While I was in Nashville I had the privilege of working out with Shaun T. Before we got started he talked about not just going through the movements of exercise but really focusing on something while you’re doing it.
My focus: to be strong, even when I don’t feel strong.
Watch Shaun T. and ask yourself, what is my focus?
Are you just going through the moves or are you focusing on your goals and inner strength?

Workout Wednesday: ARM DAY!
I love working my upper body and with summer around the corner, who doesn’t want amazing tank top arms!
I did this arm workout a few days ago and it was AMAZING! It was challenging but I felt strong and powerful at the same time.
If you want to try this all you need is a set of dumbbells. I used 15 pound weights but you could do this workout with light weights if you are a beginner. It took me about 20 minutes to go through all sets with short breaks in the middle.
Workout Wednesday: LEG DAY!
The legs are HUGE calorie burning muscles and building up muscle in them will help your body burn fat when you are at rest. Don’t be afraid to pick up a set of weights and squat! They will not make you bulky. Lifting weights will just help you have toned legs to show off in shorts this summer!
I did this leg workout yesterday and it was AMAZING! I have a love/hate relationship with training my legs. I love the results that using weights brings but let’s just say that stairs, sitting on toilets and walking is all painful today. I like to be sore because I visualize the soreness as my muscles growing. It hurts so good!
