My Poor Butt: Revolt Check-In Week 5

Happy June everyone! Is anyone else freaking out that is June already? It's just hard to come to terms with the fact that we're already six months into 2013. It's really starting to feel like summer. It is almost Will's birthday. It has almost been a year now that we've been living in Boise, which is the biggest thing I'm really trying to wrap my head around. It seems like just yesterday we were stuffing our car and a trailer full of things for the drive down here, but at the same time it feels like no time has passed at all.



For once in my life, I can say I am ready and excited for the summer. You guys all know how much I hate the heat (and Boise summer's has no lack of it), but I am feeling fit and happy and ready to be outside exploring. I'm hoping we'll be able to take a longer camping trip at some point this summer; to really get out and relax and enjoy nature.


Revolt this week just about killed me. Or at least my rear-end. This is an extreme exaggeration, but do you want to hear a funny story? So, normally a week of Revolt exercises includes 3 days of cardio, 1 day of lower body sculpting, and 1 day of upper body sculpting (just not in that order). Well, Nichole was super lovely and had some extra awesome fat burning cardio blast workouts planned for us all this week to kick us into gear for the June 3rd uprising (wanna join me?!) that starts Monday. The workouts were great! But I had shut myself away from the internet for the weekend and was unaware of this change of plans. Also, I usually take a break on Saturday because Saturdays are my most busy days and it is easier for me to do my last cardio video/exercise on Sunday instead. I did this this week, and then decided to switch my Monday and Tuesday workouts too, making Monday's workout an intense lower body sculpting day. Well, Tuesday when I got back on the internet, I found out Monday was suppose to be a rest day! Since then I've been doing cardio blast type workouts all week. My poor little behind; all of those workouts were jam-packed with lunges and squat after squat. It has been quite a killer workout, and now I am getting a bit off a break. Even sitting down hurts :( But! I think you can see from my results this week that these intense workouts that kicked my butt (literally) were well worth it. Look at the change in my hip measurements:


My butt is feeling a little firmer and a little smaller too. I'm excited to start the next uprising on Monday. If any of you are interested in Revolt, you can always leave a comment or email me with questions!

P.S. I did 40 big girl x push-ups yesterday! My arms and chest are getting infinitely stronger.

P.P.S. Will is going to be joining my in my journey with Revolt! Look for some thoughts from him in next weeks post.
