A GEM of a workout!

This week I have been following some NEW workouts.  I found this chick on bodybuilding.com.  Her name is Jen Jewell.  Here she is:

get-back-to-basics-1This is a very mild picture of her.  Most of the ones I saw she’s ripped to shreds.  She had a few circuit workouts that looked like my style.  WOW!  Talk about feeling shredded!  I couldn’t get through them and that doesn’t happen very often.  I’m stubborn!  Click HERE to see all 4 workouts.  It’s 4 workouts a week: back, upper body blast, lower body blast, and chest, triceps, and abs.  Perfect amount!

Here is the back workout.


chin ups 12 reps

push up to side plank 12 reps


seated cable row 12 reps

push ups with feet elevated 12 reps


wide grip lat pulldown 12 reps

burpees 15 reps


bent over barbell row 12 reps

200 jumpropes


supermans 15 reps

plank 1 minute

Just typing this makes me tired and awesomely sore!  

Lately, I’ve been researching and compiling my personal training plan!  My mind is on overload.  I have 2 people that are on board already and I haven’t even advertised it yet.  It’s going to be AWESOME!!  In a nutshell, we start our 6 week GET FIT program on MONDAY of course (:  I might make it competition style and have prizes at the end!  I will provide 2 workouts a week, diet plans, and what to do and not to do information.  I’ll be on it too!!

I have lots more on my mind…wishing Halloween were over.  I can only handle so many parties and costumes, and craziness!  However, I am super duper happy that I’m coloring my hair tomorrow!  Happy Halloween to me!!!

I have two options in mind.  Dark with red or dark with caramel.  I’m a little afraid of red because I don’t want it to look fake.  We shall see!  Which one do you like?

Have a happy and safe Halloween!!!  I’ll be back Friday with outfits and new hair.



Let’s get this PT rollin’

My mind has been a rollin’ lately with starting my own personal training business.  Right now I’m working through a gym, but I’m leaning towards working out of my home.  I’ll start simple with a set of dumbbells and maybe work up to a full gym in my basement!  I know my family would use it!  I’m flattered when people ask me to help them lose weight.  It’s a bit overwhelming when you look on the internet at all the weight loss plans and gizmos out there.  Simple is KEY!  I’ve been able to maintain my weight for years and through pregnancies and getting older (:  It is not easy.  If it was, everyone would be thin and fit!  I’m going to put my life on paper and teach people what I do everyday!

97e1f97f16bf8686cbce4d9e179ccf90I’m going to start out with a 8 week fitness plan.  It will include 3 circuit workouts and 3 cardio workouts a week.  I will share weekly diet plans and recipes.  I’ll give my tips and advice on what I do every day.  Once a week I’ll meet with my clients to go over the weekly workouts and diet plan and track progress.  I believe in losing weight healthily and slowly.  If you follow my plan for 8 weeks, I guarantee you’ll lose 10-20 lbs.  (:

That sounds like an infomercial!  Ha ha!  I believe anyone can get the body they want with hard work and consistency.  It’ll be a GREAT adventure and I hope to help many people reach their fitness goals.  I’m going to follow the plan along with my clients.  Monday, November 4th will be my start date!  Just in time to stay in line for the holidays and be fitter than ever for the new year!

I have no exciting pictures to share today!!  I did make a stop at Lulu to buy a gift for a friend and ended up with 2 new outfits for me!  How did that happen???  (:


My weekly goal this week is to jumprope 1000 times every day!  Sounds fun!

My food goal is to weigh 130 by Halloween morning so I can have a few treats of course!

Train hard and Kick it up a notch!
