It was an awesome weekend. Family Friday, a date night, wine for $0.49 at Walgreens (say whaaaat), super sweaty yoga class and a Father’s Day dinner at my dadoo’s house. My stepmom made Southern food (fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, mac n’ cheese, biscuits, salad, fruit, veggies, pie), so needless to say, my Alabama man was a fan. Livi spent some time Sunday morning coloring a card for her daddy, and we made him breakfast with crispy bacon (baked with brown sugar, salt, pepper and smoked paprika), pancakes and OJ. We spent lots of time in the pool, enjoying the weather (monsoons are on the way!) and enjoying time with each other. Not too shabby.

Our Monday was greeted with “service engine soon” lights in both of our cars -how does that even happen?!- so we’re off to deal with that ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you had a lovely weekend!

    Workout 3 has got to be one of my favorites, Gina! Adore renegade rows and the pliรฉ series rocked. Super sweaty at the end of this one. Lifted heavy and really pushed myself through 3 rounds. Squeezed in my cardio before the baby woke up so all I have left is my ab burner (probably before bed tonight). Absolutely love an efficient workout and this one totally flew by. Thanks so much!!

    And those sandals are super cute!!

    That salsa, chip, margarita picture had me salivating!

    Where is your pink skirt from? It’s super cute!

      Never mind! Read the previous comments!

      Love that skirt! Where is it from???

      • Lauren L on June 17, 2013 at 8:25 pm

        Nevermind! Found the older comments now I know ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did WO 3 this morning! Super duper sweaty, those push-up rows were killah.. my arms are noodles ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved it. Any tips for speed work on an elliptical? Its hard for me to control the speed as specifically.. I just did 2-3 mins moderate, 2-3 sprint/fast for 20 mins!
    On another note, I’m starting a f/t 9-5 in a few weeks (er, 8:30-5:30 actually :/ ) and I know fitting in work outs is gonna be an adjustment.. any videos or programs do you recommend for at-home? I have weights, stability ball, jump rope.. I thinking of buying the Chalean turbofire vids you’ve reviewed on here before to do in the mornings, hopefully in like 30ish mins. They’re good cardio? Are they crazy intense? I’m good with the shape-up work-outs and matching cardio, but its def a Challenge for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow! I loved workout 3! I am a sweaty mess and I can already tell I will be sore tomorrow. Thanks for sharing these great workouts!!

  6. Erin on June 17, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Holy. Sweaty.

    I am a week behind (I had stitches that prevented me from working out) so I just finished the week two workout and I am a sweaty animal. Thanks for always making such great workouts!

  7. Laura B on June 17, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    I’m on a different schedule this week (like most weeks because my rest days happen around my play date schedule of the week), so I did cardio yesterday since Sat was the last WO2. Today is my rest day and tomorrow is my WO3. After looking at it, though, I can tell you I cannot wait to give it a go!

  8. Lauren @ Sassy Molassy on June 17, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    How amazing is that floaty pink skirt you’re wearing?! Love it. Did some of the workout #3 this morning while also doing an Insanity workout. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Mandy M on June 17, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    Did wo 3 yesterday and I loved it. Renegade pushup combo always makes me feel like such a bad ass. You manage to incorporate all body parts in your workouts, which I love! I got funny looks from my little one while he was watching cartoons and I was doing the plie circuit, though.

  10. Charity on June 17, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Is wine 2.99$ a bottle there?!?!?!?!

    • Fitnessista on June 17, 2013 at 8:55 pm

      when it’s $5 off! wahoo!

  11. Sarah on June 17, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Workout #3 is absolutely my fav so far! Loved the plie killers and the super surge at the end too!
    Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Kelley on June 17, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    I’m a week behind because of a crazy work week, so I did workout 2 today and my legs are mush! Feels good to get back on track!

  13. Maggie on June 17, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Yeah, you can’t show pictures of cupcakes that delicious without telling us what they are or posting a recipe! Pretty please? ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Mian Dela Cruz on June 17, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Just did the workout this evenin’! I love pliรฉ squats ! My inner thighs need them!

  15. Melissa on June 17, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    The renegade pushups were killer!

  16. Kate on June 17, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Where did you get that purple bracelet? I love it!

    • Fitnessista on June 17, 2013 at 11:27 pm

      thank you! it’s from satya

  17. Natasha on June 17, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Workout 3 kicked my booty! Did the cardio speed surge on the stairmaster…. Wow!

  18. Alice on June 18, 2013 at 12:59 am

    Workout 3 done, wow I was shaking and sweating ๐Ÿ™‚ the elliptical was def rocking, I kept thinking she said I should be in a sprint at the end! Thanks!

  19. Ellie E on June 18, 2013 at 4:22 am

    Completed Monday’s workout, etc. It was hard to motivate myself at first, but I felt great afterwards. I was energized to clean the place ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!!

  20. Jen on June 18, 2013 at 7:07 am

    My week is off to a great start… Did workout #3 on Sunday because Monday was a public holiday here in South Africa and I was planning on going hiking on Monday. 11.5km in the bush was a pretty good steady state workout for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Katie on June 18, 2013 at 8:26 am

    Fell off the bandwagon on Friday. I’m going to do wo 3 today. Gotta keep the momentum going!
