24 Days, 1980 Burpees, 5 Miles, and so many smoothies!

Posted by:

Let me tell you, 1980 is A LOT of burpees.  I’m trying not to remember I have 6120 to go before my 90 day challenge is up.  I’ve also completed 5 days of adding a one mile run to my workout routine.  I’m shocked by how much I sweat from running only a mile!  It’s definitely a good piece of cardio to add in.  I’ve also been keeping up with my Zuzka workouts and am about to do #50 ...

1620 Burpees Down, Let’s Start Running!

Posted by:

I think I must be insane.  I mean, I have to be a crazy person.  I’m doing these 90 burpees a day along with a Zuzka workout once a day and now on top of that I’m running a mile a day.  Honestly, when I put it like that it doesn’t sound that crazy; an olympian practicing hours a day definitely has me beat.  But for me, it’s A LOT and I’M SORE, but I’m sticking with it.

I added ...

1200 down, 6900 to go & Warrior Food is not my friend

Posted by:

I finally did the math.  It’s not like it was hard, I just didn’t want it staring me in the face.  So far I’ve done 1200 burpees (60 more to do today), which means I have 6900 to go and will have completed 8100 burpees by the end of my 90 day challenge.  That’s assuming, of course, that I finish.  But I BETTER finish!  

I finally gave Warrior Food another try today and I’m sticking with my “C” rating.  At ...

1080 burpees down, more than I care to count to go!  I’m hurting but not enough to complain about it here just yet.  This is a quickie entry to share my latest Vitamix creation:

900 Burpees in 10 days and brown smoothies to boot!

Posted by:

That subject is a lie.  It’s only 11am here so I’ve only done my first round of burpees for the day, making it 840 burpees so far.  But by the end of the day it will be 900, even though I’ll be  kicking and screaming the whole way.  I am SORE!!!  Yesterday I completed Zuzka’s ZWOW #43 (on top of the 90 burpees for the day) and it was a total killer.  She apparently recorded it right before Thanksgiving so ...
