Avoiding the bathroom

A while back, okay maybe less then two weeks ago. I don't know time kind of stops when you have an infant. I am constantly looking at a calendar to figure out what day of the week it is. So....I was reading a blog post from Life on the Pavement and she mentioned an quick workout that is really effective.

I figured, since right now I am navigating 1st grade drop off/pick up, family stuff and my little newborn this was my type of workout. Remember how I said I was out of shape, lets just say by day 4 I was limiting water a little to avoid going to the bathroom my legs were killing me. What is the tortures workout you may ask? It is hosted by Bikini Body Mommy on Facebook.  She has a blog and a book, but honestly I am just interested in the quick free workouts that kick my butt.  They are explained in simple easy to read formats, I need this with my lack of sleep, so I don't even have to think about what to do.

Here is a look at day 4  from Facebook:

This was the first day I didn't complete all of the rounds or all of the exercise. My legs were dead, my arms were hurting. 2 rounds in, skipping the burpees and squat jumps I called it quits for the day. Seriously, pain in my thighs. It just goes to show that I have a long way to go.
I am really liking these workouts, even if I know I will never be a Bikini Body Mommy, nor do I want to be, but I would love to shrink the pregnancy belly and get stronger overall. I feel like they will be a nice compliment when to running.  I was never so happy to see the Day 6 - was just cardio and Day 7 was a day of rest.  I have not looked at today's workout Day 8 - but I will push through. 
In other news, I was not able to make it to my doctors appointment on Friday to get cleared. A little thing called a dead car battery got in the way. I am moving forward though and I am going to start running again this week, to build up my base slowly.
How was everyone's weekend?
