Step Your Game Up - New Circuit!

Christmas has come and gone and that means its almost time to start a new year.

I am not really great with making or keeping resolutions so I don't think I'll make one for 2014, however I do want to refocus myself on eating clean-er and tracking my foods for awhile.
As I previously mentioned I feel as though I've gotten way off track and I don't like how I look or feel at the moment and that is NOT okay.

Yesterday was my first time in the gym since Monday. I generally take only one rest day a week and that is Friday but our gym closed early for Christmas Eve and remained close through Christmas Day. I could have worked out at home, on my own, but lets be serious... I'm just not that type of person. I wish I was but I'm not. 

Instead I ate my face off with every bad for me food there was available and drank too much wine along with not working out.
Horrible combination.

Thankfully I got my booty to the gym and took the same bootcamp class I did last week but this time it was a different instructor and she kicked our butts just as much as the other one did the week before.

We started the class with warm ups going across the room: lunges, lateral moves, and ended with my favorite high school sports throwback: suicides.

After warming up we got into the circuits: 4 moves, 4 rounds, done twice.
We used steps with 6 risers, 8lb & 5lb weights, and a stability ball.
By the end of the class I was exhausted, but I think that was due to lack of sleep this week- eating poorly and being out of the gym for two days.

If you're looking for a fun, challenging workout I definitely suggest trying this one out. Let me know if you do!


  1. Great circuit! I'll have to give it a try sometime this week. I'm in the same place with wanting to eat a bit cleaner, but don't let falling off the wagon a bit get you down. You can always get back up. :)

  2. Minions make everything better :) Great circuit!!

  3. NEW YEAR BABY!!!! You'll definitely get right back into it once all of the festivities are officially over!!
