Sweatin’ on Saturday

I have a new move for you today, and I’m pretty pumped about it.  You know what else I’m pumped about?  My pumped up kicks!  They make training much more comfy!  (And I just like saying “pumped up kicks” because I love that song...)

Okay… here’s the video.  This is me explaining my version of the bench step-up.  Yes, I still feel goofy watching myself on film, but due to the success of last week’s cross-back lunge video, I thought I’d make another.  Enjoy!

If you try this move, please let me know by linking up or commenting.  I’d love to know if y’all like it.  I’m also open to other suggestions.  You know I’m not physical therapist, personal trainer, or anything like that, but if you have a trouble spot you’d like to tone, I can tell you what works for me!

Lastly – don’t be jealous, but this was my awesome dinner.  I had spaghetti squash and meat-less balls.  Yum!  Kevin had real pasta.

Our friends that came over for wine last night brought bake-shop brownies.  I avoided them all night, but finally had a piece of a peanut butter one to be nice.  I was so proud of myself for not going overboard, especially after a couple glasses of Chianti!  I even got them to take the leftovers home.  Woohoo!

In addition, I have already completed my quick run for today.  I often forget how good it feels to make good choices.

Have a great weekend!

  5. Now I’m wishing I had picked up spaghetti squash. I usually do step ups starting with one foot on bench and step up tapping the none working leg (toe) at the edge then back down. These look like booty killers 😉

  6. And here I was doing step ups the boring, old-fashioned way. I’m definitely going to have to give these a shot 😀 And I love starting the day out right; it sets just a great tone. I went for a brisk walk by the river this morning before it got too hot, followed by coffee with a friend. perfect start to the weekend 😀

  7. Ooo those step ups look awesome! I’m going to have to try them! Thanks for sharing :).

  8. I sometimes listen to Pumped Up Kicks on repeat. I’m not embarrassed about it. I dance too. Especially in my car. Love the new kicks, love your videos. 🙂

  9. I have actually never tried those, but see people at the gym doing them. I think I need to give them a go – I like challenging leg workouts. 🙂
    It feels SO good to go a whole day and make healthy decisions. You really do feel great at the end of the day, but it’s so hard!!

  10. The “pasta” you had looks delish! I often forget how good it feels to make good choices, as well! Most of the time, I give in to temptation!

  11. Thank you for sharing those steps! I am looking to mix up my routine a bit so I should give these a try asap 🙂

  12. Those look tough!
    Love your new kicks! Too cute!

  13. Definitely a good move! Loving the videos! 😀

  14. Love the video! You look so cute and super pro with your gloves!
