If there is one thing most women can’t stand it’s the number on the scale. Although I’ve never been a scale person (I don’t have one in my home), I know I’ve gained a little bit over the past year or so. So in gearing up again with my personal trainer, I asked him if we could do measurements before our session today. This included the scale – and his has always shown more than my physician’s office.

He did weight first, I did not look at the scale. Do you know how HARD that was? Gets better. He did measurements and pictures. I have no idea what the measurements are, and I already know what I look like.

Cuz I know you’re dying to know:

Circuit 1:

Deck of Cards:
Diamonds = 5 burpees
Spades = 15 squats
Clubs = 10 curl & press w/dumbells
Hearts = 30 second plank

You have 20 minutes to draw as many cards from the deck and do the exercise that corresponds to the above suits. No breaks. Here’s mine:

14 cards drawn (average is 20):
75 squats
1 minute planks
15 curl & press
45 burpees (modified)

Circuit 2:

5lb Dumbbells:
15 side raises x 3
15 half Arnolds x 3
15 front raises x 3
15 full Arnolds & press x 3

Circuit 3:

12lb Dumbbells:
15 curls x 3
15 tricep press x 3
15 hammer curls x 3
Pushups? Total Fail.
