Ultimate Saturday

It was my full intention to take it easy this weekend on the workouts and enjoy the family time. It was also my intention to do my T25 workout on Friday rather than saving it until Saturday.

Let me tell you a story about what actually happened and you can judge me later. (yes, I did drink the mimosas I promised I would)

So you know how I've been drinking the T25 Kool-aid for the past few weeks right?


(At least I'm consistent!)

Well, when I told mom that I was planning to come home for Easter weekend she invited me to bring along my T25 DVD's so that she could see what they were all about. My mom is the kind of lady who flips tires, picks up heavy weights, does box jumps and can squat her ass to the grass better than I can - so I had no worry she'd rock the T25. Challenge accepted, mother!

Since the only thing I did on Friday night was sleep, I woke early on Saturday morning with energy and a nagging voice in my head to make up for the workouts that I missed on Friday. Not thinking it'd be a big deal, I did the prescribed back-to-back Alpha Lower Focus & Ab Intervals workouts -  all before 8:30 in the morning. 


After my shower I packed up for the weekend and headed home to see my family and the golden retriever sisters. After some quality communication and girl time, mom was itching to meet Shaun T. Who isn't?!

We jumped, squatted and high-knee ran ourselves into a serious sweat through 25 minutes of Alpha Cardio and I was crazy impressed with my mom (and also impressed with myself for a triple T25 day). 

We high-fived and started the cool down when I joked that we could do another if she was game. You want to know who will always "be game"?? 

Supermom (and the golden retrievers, of course!)


We kicked Speed 1.0's butt for another 25 minutes and I even got mom to take her very first sweaty selfie - I was so proud! She's not as used to the sweaty selfie as I am, but I think she'll get there!!


Can you believe she even said she could do another? Unbelievable!

Just goes to show that you can do anything you put your mind to.... and that mothers really are the most amazing humans on the planet.

  1. Moms really ARE the best! And I would definitely want yours on my side in a bar fight if she can flip tires.
