We had a wonderful weekend. Busy yet relaxing at the same time.
We did some house things for Lori and Gary’s place. They have some house projects that they want done before the little one arrives in a few months. Since I am such a sweet twin sister I have offered my time to help. (Yes, I realize how lucky I am to have Michelle as a twin sis).
We celebrated Lori being a new mom-to-be for Mother’s Day by doing things for baby M. We called our mom and older sister to wish them a happy Mother’s Day and wished we could be there with them to celebrate together.
We had a hard time coming up with a cute name for this workout. And one day Lori mentioned it’s our lucky 7 workout. Since there are 7 exercises that we do 7 reps for 7 rounds. Sounds easy enough, right? We thought we could do this workout in under 25 minutes.
It actually took us a little over 30 minutes to complete.
Luck was on our side to push us through this workout. To be honest, about halfway through I was thinking we should have reduced the reps or rounds 😉 We got this idea from our triple 8 workout (which now thinking about it we should have called this workout crazy 7 just like that one)! We loved that workout. It was also another long workout for us as we usually workout in less than 20 minutes a day around here. But… it’s good to challenge the body and the mind differently.
Do we have you super excited to burn some calories and shed some fat with this lucky 7 workout right? Good!
