Hmmm, I have liked Body Rock and left my post but when I click on Endorphin Warrior Jewelry it takes me to my news feed. I tried to search them and they don't appear in the search results. I went to their site and clicked their FB tab and it took me to my news feed again. You should let them know their link is down or page is inactivated. Looks like they have neat stuff!

I do a BootCamp workout on an average of 6 days a week. Today we worked arms and some core, along with cardio and plyometric exercises. It was a very diverse routine today!

I love our BootCamp because the routine/circuit changes every day. All I have to do is show up, and our instructor has the routine set up. It is nice to be surprised each day and constantly have a change up. LOVE IT!

Anna said...

So Friday turned into an unscheduled DOR. I was pretty sore and decided to seize the warm day and went for a quick round of disc golf after work instead of going to the gym. Saturday I went on a 1:45 hike. It's 1,000 feet elevation change, so it wasn't light exercise!

Today I've been cramming for midterms since I woke up. Plan on doing one of the suggested workouts before the day is done. Will check back later!

Happy Fit Sunday!

wyldrunner said...

No run today, but I put in probably a few miles of walking volunteering at a local Super Bowl 5k race. Fun to volunteer and give back.
