#MotivateME Monday: Burpees for Breakfast

#MotivateME Monday is a weekly link-up co-hosted by Fitness Chearleader and Running Rachel for accountability and encouragement. It’s a place for us to share goals, plans, successes and have each other to pick us up to keep moving forward.

One of my goals for this year is to do strength workouts more consistently. Initially I was planning on going to a boot camp once a week, but honestly the heavy weights worried me a little. If I don’t do the move 100% correct, I was worried I might hurt myself more than I do good. So I decided to do a 30 day challenge each month. Last month I did squads and push ups and this month I decided on doing burpees!

In order to keep myself accountable, I will share my progress with you all and hope you will join me!


I already did my 5 burpees today. Yeah! I’m planning on going for a run later on as well and see how my knee is going. I was hoping to walk or run at least 1 mile each day.

Plan for this week:
Monday: burpees + 2 mile test run
Tuesday: burpees + 1 mile walk
Wednesday: burpees + 3 mile run
Thursday: burpees + 1 mile walk
Friday: 3 mile run
Saturday: burpees + 1 mile walk
Sunday: burpees + 8k race!
Total: 16 miles + many burpees

Before you know it, summer is here. Let’s get our bodies beach ready!! Who wants to join me?
