i hate sweating, but i love the way i feel after working out. in the past i have always gone to jillian michaels 30 day shred video for a quick, but challenging, workout. however i get so tired of hearing her talk, even for just 25 minutes. i tried to put the dvd in my laptop and watch tv while i did the workout, but i missed parts because i was too enthralled with whatever i was watching...oops! :) so, this last week i have done this new cardio workout that i found on a blog (:(sorry, i cant remember what it was) totally kicks my butt! the nice thing is that i can watch tv while i do it! i get so bored when i workout which is usually why i end up not working out. this spring i have also mowed the grass...that is a workout!!! we have a decent sized yard and we use a push mower. i am pretty sure that there is something wrong with our self-propelling mechanism...even better for a workout! is the new cardio workout...mind you i did not make this up myself. i got it from a foodie blogger who is also a personal trainer...

50 jumping jacks
20 alternating lunges
10 tuck jumps
20 squats
60 seconds high knees
10 squat jumps
10 burpees
60 seconds jump rope
20 seconds mountain climbers
25 push-ups
60 second plank hold

Repeat 2-3x
~can substitute jump rope, jumping jacks, or 60 seconds wall sit for burpees or squat jumps if needed.
~can add sprints between sets if wanting an intense workout.

have fun! good luck!!

blessings, ALo
