After Christmas Workout!!

So you all know that I have been working really hard at getting into better shape. I have been running for over a year and 1/2, eating better and have been going to The Shape Project boot camp since June. Boot camp has totally changed my life and I can't imagine not going 3 days a week. It is a wonderful way to start the day and I always feel so much better on boot camp days. Not only am I burning lots of calories first thing in the morning, but I am gaining energy and have changed my body! Melissa Cox is the owner and lead trainer and now there are camps all over the metro area and in 2012 they are expanding to the Tulsa area. If you have one close to you, you have got join. The trainers are amazing, and will help you become stronger and it will change your life!! You will be glad you did.

Yesterday at boot camp we were doing lots of wall sits. We would sit on the wall for 1 minute as we did an arm exercise. To distract us, I started singing the 12 days of Christmas song. Then we decided to change the "days" into "workouts". It was fun and we all laughed and it did really help distract from our legs shaking as we sat on the wall. I told our trainer Lara Ciston I would finish it so we could do it next week. Here is what I came up with. I think it will be a good workout to work off all the cookies, candy, and chocolate we will be eating.
It goes to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas. Hope you enjoy it!!
