Confession Time!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
I have a confession to make. Remember that "Oh No, It Snowed!" workout I posted a couple weeks ago? The one that I suggested you work your way up to doing 4 times? Well, I personally had never done it 4 times in a row. That is, until yesterday.




Correction. I did it 3 times in a row, but in my defense, before I did it 3 times, I had already tested out a 20-25 minute workout that I will share with you in a few days. I just did not have the energy to do it 4 times, and had to practically force myself to do it 3 times!




My assessment: IT'S A HARD WORKOUT!

Somehow, I got faster each time through. The first round I did in 8:02, then 7:38, then 7:23. I did take substantial breaks between each round to allow my heart rate to go down a bit and gear up for another go at it.

Oh, I queued up my video so I could remember the moves and noticed I had on the exact same clothes as I did in the video. Freeeeeeaky. Also, I hate my voice. Please just turn off the sound if you ever do this workout.




I noticed a couple things during the workout and thought there may be some more fitting names I could have called my "Oh No, It Snowed!" Workout. Such as..


"My Legs Feel Like Jelly!" Workout 
(Stupid squat kicks...)

"Dang, I Need to Shave!" Workout 
(Easy to notice while you're planking.)

"Wow, There's A Lot of Cat Hair on the Floor!" Workout
 (All those floor exercises make you face the facts!)

"Watch Out for the Ceiling Fan!" Workout 
(On my first burpee I jumped into the ceiling fan.)

"Holy Crap, I Need A Sweat Towel!" Workout 
(Those stability ball pull ins make me perspire!)


Seriously, sometimes it's easier to just go for a run! But it is fun to switch things up a bit! I even looked around for other videos online because I was so inspired by Kristina's post!

That's all I have for you today... But check back soon because remember how I told you I tested out a new workout to share with you? Well that it coming in the next day or two!

  2. I like your voice! I like that you sound totally normal in in the video! If you watch the Blogilates videos and close your eyes for a minute you may feel like you're listening to an adult film the way she oohs and ahhhs! hahah!

  4. I like your videos! Your routine was hardcore. I can't do all the moves, but I do try to pick three or four and do them. I need to start doing more when I come back from runs! I think my strength training is going to be really challenged while I run more, but I will try to keep on top of my push-ups after runs, hopefully that will keep me from getting to weak. I need to pick like three moves...or four maybe

    1. That is a good idea to pick 3-4 moves if you are not accustomed to doing lots of plyos and stuff like this!

  5. I am going to bookmark this workout and try it in January. Why not now? Because my New Year's Resolution is to do more strength work, and I dislike it so much I am going to wait until I HAVE to...how lame am I??? My legs felt like jelly just reading it.

    1. LOL no I totally get it I am the same way! When I gave up diet soda, I picked an arbitrary date to start, but before that, I just drank my face off!

  7. I can see how 4x through that would be tough - I think I'm almost ready to try it after not being able to do much with my arm for a few weeks.

  8. I think everyone hates their voice when they hear it on camera. I know I hate the way I sound! I sound so much different in my head! I am going to try this workout soon. :-D
