Motivational Monday + One hour HIIT workout

Good Monday Morning Fitness Friends!  I hope that you had a great week and weekend.  I did!  Last week was fun, I did a lot of activities and spent some quality time with little A.  My hubby and I also had a date night with some friends and we ended up dancing which was a lot of fun!  I also took a rest week from working out, if you read my post on Wednesday you know how I was feeling last week.  I also took a few days off from the blog world to rest my mind and come back refreshed.  Sometimes it is good to take a break, as even too much of a good thing can be too much (unless it's chocolate!).  I feel that after giving myself a break, I am ready to get back to my fitness loves...working out and blogging.  How was your week and weekend?  

Here is my plan for this week:
Monday- Ripped in 30 workout, kickboxing, arms
Tuesday- Ripped in 30 workout, kickboxing abs
Wednesday- Ripped in 30, interval sprints on treadmill, back & shoulders
Thursday- Ripped in 30, kickboxing abs
Friday- Ripped in 30, legs
Saturday- Ripped in 30, kickboxing
Sunday- Rest!

My sister is getting back in her routine this week too, so we are going to keep each other accountable and on track.  I also have 3 clients that I will be working with this week, so I am excited for that!  That is one of the things I miss about training regularly, working with my clients.  I am looking forward to a great week, getting back to my normal eating and working out habits, training some clients and writing some great posts.  What are your plans for the week?

Here is a one hour workout that you can fit into your day!  You should be sweaty and feel like you kicked butt when you are done.
