Twelve Minute Madness Workout

Yesterday I went to a class taught by Jessie Hilgenberg, sponsored by Lululemon,  and went through a 45 minute workout.  Most of the focus was lower body and high intensity which was great for me because upper body can be tricky.  (due to the old injury)

When she had us begin push-ups I may have said f*ck under my breath, or maybe it was loud enough for people to hear. I am not really sure but I know it wreaks havoc for me to do push-ups.  I tried it anyway and squeezed 2 out before it began to hurt and burn so I just modified it to a plank.  I am still happy about the things I *can* do because many people are less fortunate than me.  Not gonna lie, it is a mental roller coaster between trying to stay positive and the actual realization of it all.  Either way, I continue doing my best to stay positive and finding things that I CAN do!!!

Confession:  I think Jessie is SO HOT!!!  She is in amazing shape and takes great care of herself. 
Confession:  It's been a while since I've done 45 minutes of anything high intensity -which is embarrassing itself.  Buuuut, I did much better than expected so the shorter, lighter things I do count for something

This workout is a good one because I can do most of with no trouble.  Thanks Beach Body!!!  Aaaaand, summer is around the corner so it is time to act like it!
