Fitness Round Up

I've avoided the Fitness Round Up like the plague lately because I STILL haven't done P90X. I had ONE workout to complete in order to proudly wave my "Mission: Accomplished" banner, and I still haven't done it.

BUT... I've done a whole host of other activities since then!

Let's list 'em:

The Firm - Jiggle Free Arms: This is a great 30-minute arm workout. The best thing about The Firm is that each workout is infused with cardio, so you're burning fat while strength training. Wonderful!

Crunch - Burn + Firm Pilates: This workout adapts moves from mat and reformer workouts, so that you're on your feet with 3-lb hand weights. It's fantastic, tons of lengthening moves, lots of sweat!

Crunch - Fat Burning Dance Party: Uploaded this workout on my Netflix Instant Queue and so glad I did. I love challenging myself with dance DVDs— really tests coordination. This is separated into Latin, Hip Hop, and Retro dance parties. Good time!

Tennis w/ Amwilli: Fact— This is the most amazing full-body workout of all time. Need to get my racket restrung!

Run, Run, Runnnn: The treadmill and I have become good friends. My goal has been to log at least 8 miles a week, but this week and last I logged 12 mi a piece. Woo!

So yeah, these last couple of weeks have been busy and active (just how I like 'em)!

I'd like to thank Road Runner Sports for measuring and scanning my feet, making me jog on a treadmill and outfitting me with the *perfect* pair of running shoes and insoles. Super simple equation: Happy feet = easier workout. If you're in the market for new shoes, I highly recommend Road Runner— Amwilli (this family's avid runner) has been going for years, and now I'm a proud convert.

I guess I can't technically say "Mission: Accomplished," but I don't think I've done too shabby. I'll take it!

I hope everyone is meeting their fitness goals this week!
