Fearing the shredmill workout & my progress

I have been meaning to post my Hungry Girl inspired Stuffed Squash recipe since Sunday, I had it all planned to type out today at work (on my lunch break of course) and emailed all of the pretty food pictures I took to my work email.

....or so I thought...

In the midst of my chaotic morning routine ( I swear no matter how prepared I am, I am never prepared) I forgot to hit send on my email.

recipe fail for the third day in a row.

I PROMISE it will be posted by this weekend!



So instead I am going to share my workout I will be doing tonight with all of you, in hopes that you will try it yourselves.. 

Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you the Tone It Up: SHREDMILL WORKOUT

  • 30 squat jacks
  • 30 tummy tucks
  • 30 burpees
  • Sprint 2:00 minutes
  • 20 squat jacks
  • 20 tummy tucks
  • 20 burpees
  • Sprint 1:00 minute
  • 30 squat jacks
  • 30 tummy tucks
  • 30 burpees
  • Sprint 2:00 minutes
  • 20 squat jacks
  • 20 tummy tucks
  • 20 burpees
  • Sprint 1:00 minute
**Remember.. sprints can be ran outside or on the treadmill.. on your bike or an exercise bike.. on a stepmill or cross trainer!


Intimidating right? I am really not looking forward to this challenge/workout/hell but I am not shying away from it either. I will be lacing up my sneakers and hitting the yoga room to torture myself tonight. I may switch out the sprints for jumping rope and then do the treadmill after the challenge. I'll let you know how this goes tomorrow.. if I survive that is.

Is this workout in a foreign language to you? Don't worry here is a video with the moves so you have no excuses, you're welcome!!









Since starting the Tone It Up lifestyle plan last week I have lost 3 pounds and have gained a lot of energy,and nutrition knowledge. I feel better than I have in a long time, which makes it all worth it.
Some of my gym buddies/good friends have also joined, and I couldn't be happier! I love surrounding myself with people who share the same interests because it keeps me that much more on track. 
I encourage every one of you to give it a try, don't let the cost scare you off because you have to remember it is a LIFETIME membership!


Happy Hump Day!!!!

Just Keep Sweating

  1. Hi Carlyn, I and my wife are working out together and burpees are our favorite exercise. Why? Simply because, doing such can burn mega calories and make you stronger. Also, no equipment is required. We would love to try your workout.
