Well I can't believe I'm doing this, but it's for EPIC so here goes! Here's my FULL BODY (oh the pain) picture for EPIC :) I can't believe I'm posting a full body, no makeup, workout clothes picture!!!
If you can't tell, the sign on the mirror is my motivational reminder about our HONEYMOON to HAWAII that I refused to go on cause I couldn't bear the thought of me in such a beautiful place with my current body! So we're going to try to go next year as a part honeymoon, part graduation trip!
If I can do this, then YOU can do it to! It's a great way to start the next leg of Epic on the right foot! YAY for 10 points!

Have any of you ever used or heard of Exercise TV? If you haven't used it, I highly suggest you check it out! I LOVE them because I can get a variety of different workouts, with different trainers. Plus, you can either purchase DVDs and have them mailed to you or you can simply download them directly to your computer.
I was looking for a little variety to add to my cardio routine because I feel like I'm already starting to get bored with the few that I have. So I was looking around EverciseTV and came across some CRUNCH workouts. CRUNCH is a gym based in Cali, but has locations across the country, and they were the first to introduce spinning and cardio strip tease, among other things. Today I downloaded a set of 9, 20 minute videos for only $18. And let me just say I had so much fun!!!!
I did their famous Diesel workout which is an interval workout with strength training and bursts of cardio for increased fat burn. My arms were screaming and I was pouring sweat at the end. Then I did the Global Grooves video which is like an aerobic dance class that incorporates dance moves from around the world. They show you moves slowly, and then you do them fast, and then you add them all together to form a "routine". If any of you are interested in dance, you'd definitely like them. It was a great full body workout. The moves are pretty easy slow, but when they say up to tempo, be ready to move your ass and move it in a hurry!
I love doing my own workout videos at home cause I can focus more on my breathing, learning the moves, pushing myself, etc instead of live classes where I'll be focused on not messing up and what other people are thinking about me. I actually had so much fun, I can't wait to try out the other videos. And just because I had fun, don't think I wasn't sweating my butt off. My heart rate was up, but I was able to focus on having fun and really getting into the moves versus wondering when the torture will be over. I have to love it, to do it, and these will keep me motivated.
I posted the link below for anyone who's interested!
Spark on my friends, SPARK ON!!!
