Workout Routines and 30 Day Challenge

Happy Hump Day!

Did you do any April Fools pranks? I taped poppers (from the 4th of July) to the underside of the toilet seat so it scared the pants off my hubs- bad pun intended.

I've been getting a lot of new followers to my little space on the internet lately, and I've been getting more and more questions about what my workouts were like when I first started, how they transitioned and what I'm doing now. So I wanted to take a bit to go over those and just welcome all the newcomers :)

With that in mind I peaked back at my blog a year ago and around this time I was celebrating the first 30lbs gone...



When I first started to workout, I had no Idea what to do at all. So I downloaded the Couch 2 5K App and I did that program twice. I was running/walking 3 days a week and then the other 4 days I did 30 minutes of ab workouts I found online or made up in my living room. I graduated on to the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, which I did that twice too. I then moved on to doing Shaun T's T25 which lasted 50 Days. After finishing that I then got a gym membership and in December I started following a plan from my trainer. She has me in the gym 5 days a week, beginning with 30 minutes of cardio then lifting for 30-45 minutes or more with each day being a different muscle focus(Back, Chest, Legs, Arms, Shoulders). I HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest the 30 day Shred. It is totally awesome, I had great results and it was only 30 minutes a day. See my results HERE

Here are some of my workouts ranging from when I first began to some I still do for fun!





















Also I came up with a challenge for April for my Resolution Revolution Ladies, but I did want to share it with you all as well!



The girls in the group are in a contest too, but I want to do a separate contest here too, If you do the challenge then on the last day send my a video of you doing that days moves and KILLING it :) I will put your name in for a drawing and the random winner will get a prize (to be decided, I like to find awesome fitness gear that I know people will love). So get active today, week's half over and I'm in week two of my bikini challenge. Are you doing any challenges? How are they going?
