    There really aren’t any tips for Burpees. I think they’re just awkward. I did not workout yesterday because I threw out my back(yay me!). And I don’t twitter. 🙂

      I’m sorry about your back! I hope it’s something temporary.

      Burpees are so awkward. They are hard but good to do, I just wish I didn’t feel like a klutz doing them!

    I ran 5 miles yesterday morning, and then did a 45 minute tempo run before work today. i’ve been so proud of myself for getting in my workouts before work because this is something I can usually NEVER do. Go me! =)

      Good for you! That’s so great. I WISH I could get up early to workout!

    I loved your post about swimming and I am seriously considering it when the weather is warmer. I took a swimming class in college and I LOVED it. Even my husband (well boyfriend at the time), love how my shoulders and back were more defined.
    Plus I think it will help mix things up instead of doing the same thing.
    I noticed you use your phone for the workouts. Is that an app? I have all these great workouts on paper but I rather bring my phone instead.

      It is an app! It’s the Nike Training App. It’s FREE!!!! And so great. I really recommend it.

    Tillamook sour cream is the BEST-I try for cheaper ones sometimes and they’re just not as good!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      AGREED! There is nothing better than Tillamook anything! I love their cheese. The ice cream is my favorite (too bad they don’t have lighter versions). Daisy is a close second in terms of sour cream yumminess. All the rest are nasty.

    Is that an app for an iphone you’re showing? It looks neat whatever it is!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      It is! Search for “Nike Training App” and download it. It’s free!

    I just started with the Nike training app, and it’s awesome. I do wish I could see calories burned though. apart from that watch you are using, do you know any other method to track the calories burnt?

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You are right! That’s the one drawback. Unfortunately the only way I know to keep track of calories burned is wearing my heart rate monitor. It’s the most accurate way! In fact my HRM is more accurate than the gym machines.
