The Sweaty At-Home Boot Camp

Man, I wish every weekend we could get an extra hour.  I completely forgot about daylight savings until Saturday night.  I didn’t do anything super exciting with my extra hour: I slept in. I needed it and I feel great today.

Backtracking, on Saturday morning I did a 5 mile run along Manhattan Beach….such a perfect way to start the weekend.  I really think that Saturday is my favorite day for a long run.  I love seeing people walking around getting coffee, sitting down eating brunch, walking and running.  Oh and I also could sit for hours watching the surfers. So cool.  I wish I knew how to surf.  Maybe that should be added to my bucket list? Hmm.

Saturday afternoon the hubby went to a football game with some friends, so I had a “Me Day.”  Started off with lunch and shopping with a girlfriend,  caught up on some blog reading, read  skimmed through some trashy magazines, painted my nails, and watched a chick flick.  I downloaded 27 Dresses, haven’t seen this movie since it was out in the theater. So cheesy but yet so awesome.

And Cosmo? Lol, I can’t believe I bought this.  I haven’t read Cosmo since I was in college, and it hasn’t changed one bit.

Onto the WORKOUT!

Here’s another quick at-home booty camp workout I created…..all exercises use only your body weight, so no equipment is needed.  It’s quick, but it’ll definitely get your heart pumping.

Repeat this Workout Twice.  Take a water break in between sets. 

And you know any workout that includes 80 Burpees must be pretty awesome, right?  If you are hard core, try repeating this workout 3x through. I dare you! :) I’m going to do this one when I’m watching football with the hubby tonight. (I get super antsy sitting for over 3 hours, so this should be a good substitute)


Quick Form Tips

Lunge kicks:  Perform a backwards lunge  in front of you as it comes forward.

Plie Squat:  Stand with feet wider than hip width apart and feet pointed out at a 45 degree angle, keep knees in line with ankles.

Let me know what you think!

What’s your ideal “ME Day?”
