Day 23 (day 2 / week 4)

Oh cow! Man, today's workout was hard!

Today is my birthday (I made it easy for my hubby to remember my bday by being born on 0123 so he's never allowed to forget lol) and I decided my birthday present for myself would be to move on and say, "bye bye!" to phase 2. I woke up super early (5:30) and was more excited about tomorrow's workout, than today's. I couldn't stop thinking about it. Today would have been the last day for me in Phase 2 with "Ramp It Up!" but I couldn't wait! I wanted to move on to Phase 3, "Burn It Up!" so I did :).

Wow.

It was silly and super hard all in one. It's hard to explain about the silliness, except for at one moment I felt like a crab and another moment like I was in a Goofy cartoon lol. You really can't just skip to phase 3 w/out doing the first 2, that's for sure (if you are not super fit). I feel like I was well prepared for this phase, but was surprised at how slowly it went by lol and how much more endurance I needed to do it. I thought that The Biggest Loser Workout was harder, but this is hands down A LOT harder than The Biggest Loser Workout. They are just different, so maybe you can't really compare them.

Phase 3 took all of my favorite parts from the 2nd phase (squats and lunges, core work and resistance bands) and brought it over for a more intense, fast paced workout. It added some of my favorite moves (the punching and core work) from The Biggest Loser Workout which I was happy with also.This is a fun workout but definitely high intensity. It was 60 minutes long, and I was sweating the entire time. I will DEFINITELY see results from this workout when I'm done, as there is no way you could not see results. I understand even more what Slim Training is after doing phase 3.

What the DVD box says about, "Burn It Up!" is this, and I'm super excited about it:

Burn It Up! will challenge your body to burn the maximum calories and to reshape your body (especially your thighs, arms and butt!). And since you have prepared your body with Start It Up! and Ramp It up!, your results are healthy, safe and guaranteed.

Overall today was a great workout, although I'm sure I'm going to feel it tomorrow. I punked out a little on the last 4 minutes of yoga, but Logan wouldn't leave me alone, and he wanted to be held, so I can't deny him of this. There is always tomorrow :).

Hope everyone has a great workout! Thanks for the motivation and I'm so happy to see so many of you joining me :). Thanks again!

Smiles and blessings,
Melissa

I can do this. I am a star.
