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.

Well…

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!

We suggest for different fitness levels:

B-fits (beginner peeps):   Follow video for recommendations. Use light weights for the squat, lifts, and walk. Take it slow. Can do less rounds – try 3 or 4 rounds.

A-fits (advanced peeps):  Go for speed to challenge yourself. Take breaks when needed. Can add on more rounds if you desire.

FIT moms (pregnancy recommendations) :  Do the modifications mentioned in the video.  Go at a slower pace if needed. Take breaks and can do less rounds if needed. Do triangle plank jumps on a chair to take some pressure of belly. Walking pushups can be done against a wall. This workout is only safe for first trimester.

  4. This look so hard!

    Michelle, I saw in another comment that you said that your eczema issues seem worse after having eaten paleo-ish for a long time. Do you think it’s possible that it’s not the right template for you? Or do you think there’s just something you’re missing?

    Posted on May 12, 2014 at 3:30 pm
    1. Great question. To be honest I am still up in the air, as Paleo helped me in other aspects but not my eczema. So thinking there is something else that I am missing, just trying to figure out what that is 🙂

      Posted on May 12, 2014 at 6:05 pm
      1. What aspects do you feel it’s helped with? I found it actually was worse for my hormones. Once I incorporated more carbohydrates and allowed myself more body fat my cycle returned to as normal as I think it’ll ever be! What’re your feelings on paleo and hormone/menstrual health?

        Posted on May 12, 2014 at 6:24 pm
  5. I’m definitely trying this! You included so many moves that are not a part of my usual routine… and I love that it’s pregnancy friendly!

    1. great job Abby!! so happy to hear it and great job in getting your hubby to do it with you. it’s great having a workout buddy to push you!

  8. Great workout! Thanks – I tend to get stuck in a rut doing the same moves over and over and I know that’s not good for my muscles.

    Posted on May 12, 2014 at 9:14 pm
