Boot Camp Day 2 and Lululemon Review

Boot camp was much more intense today...less running and more strength training. We started by running 2 laps around the block, then we broke up into teams of 5. While one person did a sprint the rest of the team did continuous reps until each person had their turn at a sprint. Here are the moves we did:

Push ups

Holy crap the push ups and plank holds were arms are so sore! Next we ran a lap around the block and moved into stength training stations. Each team spent a minute at each station doing the move and then we would rotate (2 times through). Here are the moves for this set:

Plank jacks
Step ups
Sumo squat with side kick

The only move I didn't have to stop for a little break were the squats:( Finally we lined up to do jumping jacks...the person in the back sprinted to the front and so on until each person sprinted twice...this was pretty rough...calves were burning!

We got homework to do over the weekend...30 min jog/30 min strength on Friday, 20 min core with 15 min stretching on Saturday, and 30-60 min cardio on Sunday. I should have no problem incorporating these workouts this weekend with what I've already planned.

Lululemon review:

I wore my new gear this morning and i have to say they were GREAT for running in the rain, however not so much for crazy boot camp moves like burpees! The pants didn't have as much stretch as the groove pants, so it made it hard to do some of the moves. I expected this...and the tag even says for warmups and light activity! But based on Monday's class, I figured we would be doing a lot of running in the rain again. I think I will continue wearing groove pants to class with the jacket that I just bought. I will save the pants for running in the rain on my own...will probably need them this weekend!

Last night we had:

Turkey Pesto Pasta

1 lb ground turkey
1 package penne pasta
1 jar maranara
1-2 Tbs pesto
8 oz shredded mozzeralla
half an onion
Brown turkey with diced onion. Boil pasta according to directions on package. Combine pasta, turkey, tomato sauce, pesto and mozzerella in a baking dish and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.

For dessert I had an sparkling orange juice. 2/3 sparkling water, 1/3 orange juice...super easy and tasty! I also like lime sparkiling with cranberry or Pom juice:)

We are skipping our menu tonight and goin gout to celebrate my boyfriend law school grades...dean's list baby!!!


  1. Boot camp sounds awesome! Painful, but awesome! And that pasta bake looks very tasty! :)

  2. That sounds awesome!! Way to go boyfriend on the dean's list! I am amazed :-)

  3. Boot camp sounds super intense! Congrats to your boyfriend on Dean's List - well done!

  4. Your mocktail "dessert" sounds fun. I might have to mix it up with my Pom-tail drink. Love love love it! Oh and congrats to the bf!! :)

  5. I'm so impressed that you're doing bootcamp!

    Also, I hate burpees more than any other cardio old trainer made me do them all the time :(

    Congrats to the BF on Dean's List!

  6. I can't wait to try one of SassyFit's bootcamp classes!

  7. What sort of gear did you wear? I'm a huge lulu fan and will be starting bootcamp in April!

  8. I prefer the groove pants/crops beacue they have a slightly higher rise and feel more supportive. With these pants I'm not constatly pulling them up or messing with them. I also love the lulu light tanks, I would have every color if my wallet let me!
