Kettlebells... Can I get a hell yeah?!

So, I decided to switch it up a little bit today and try a kettlebell tabata workout for this fine Tabata Tuesday. I have had this little gem saved in my pinterest file for some time now and thought today would be the perfect day to bust it out! (I am seriously IN LOVE with this blog and all the kick ass workouts she posts!)


3 miles speed training on treadmill
8:38 min/mi  25:55 min total (I might add that I am pretty freakin' pumped about this time!)


Tabata Tuesday

Traveling kettlebell swings (20lb)
Figure 8's (30lb)

One arm swing & side shuffle (15lb)
switch other arm

High Pulls one arm (20lb)
switch other arm

Bowties (20lb)
(I added this one in)

Overhead reach sit up into Russian twist

I split the last two into their own 4 minute drills 

Can I just say... today's workout was f*ing HARD (that's what she said)! It's a good thing these tabata workouts are only once a week, cause DAMN! I followed it up with 15 minutes in the sauna - I love gettin' all sweaty!

                                                                           under boob sweat... yummy!
And the cherry on top of an already awesome day at the gym... my kids didn't get written up for anything today! Hallelujah! We will live to see another day at the gym!

In other news... we have a family reunion in Orange Beach, AL at the end of May, and I am determined to look HAWT in a bikini dammit! Has anyone tried the 6 week 6 pack by JM? I know Leigh Ann over at Elle Noel is almost finished with it and I am DYING to see her results! I am also thinking about trying out the 10 day Advocare cleanse - I may wait 'til next month though.

Oh and totally unrelated, but can I just make a confession... does anyone else watch Teen Mom 2 every week JUST so they can feel better about themselves as a parent?? No? Just me?


God help me if my daughter turns into Janelle - shot me in the freakin' head! Rant over. Do you have a guilty pleasure show you watch?

Sooo what's for dinner??
Tonight the hubs is going to grill some chicken with melted provolone, topped with sautéed mushrooms and some grilled asparagus (watch out, it makes your pee stink!) and a side salad. What are YOU having for din din tonight?

If you want, you can check out my pinterest boards - I pin some pretty cool shit...

Have a great Tuesday!
