All about Burpees!

Happy Monday!

I spent most of the day catching up around the house after neglecting a few chores this weekend…

I actually got most of it done before 9:30! I love when I have productive mornings!

I hit up GPP today for the WOD which was Burp-o-rama!


You do 10 burpees on the minute for 20 minutes.

Fantastic right?!

I have some great friends that like to push the limits a little- So we did 12 burpees every minute up until round 10 then we went back to 10 for the last half and the last minute we did burpees until the buzzer! I had sweat in my eyeballs. It was great.

I love that this workout can be done anywhere, that it is a total breather and I am a hot mess afterwards. –By the time you finish this workout, you will feel like you ran 10 miles in only 20 minutes! This is my go-to workout when I am out of town and can’t make it to the gym.

There is a big event coming up and if you are local, you need to COME!

This is going to be epic and all proceeds go to “no more victims”

Doing burpees for a mile may sound CRAZY, and HARD but it won’t be as bad as your thinking. We will do them all together and like this!

You CAN do it!

I’m still on board with my new diet plan, which is still going great and is pretty easy to follow.

Its not much different from how I used to eat, just more often. Like every two hours-often.


I’m LOVING squash right now! Especially the pre-cut butternut squash from Costco! Cutting a squash totally counts as a second workout and I don’t want want to workout more then I get too.Winking smile

Somebody even got a haircut today!


And someone even threw a tantrum…


Don’t mess with this one.. No worries- the terrible twos are just what some moms make them out to be.. but she calms down pretty quick and is all smiles and giggles from there!


Much better!!

Question of the day:

What is your favorite squash?

Anybody run a race this weekend?


  1. Yayyy for burpees! I want that tshirt that says burpees hate you too. Love the kiddos- so cute. I'm not sure Kay will ever need a haircut ;)

  2. If I lived a little closer, I'd definitely be in on those burpees. I'm a big fan of spaghetti squash!

  3. Erica, I would wear that shirt!
