At-Home Chipper

Hi, guys!

After breakfast yesterday morning, I got my sweat on with this at-home chipper!

I forgot to time myself, but this workout took me awhile to finish (maybe 20 minutes?) and it left me a tired, sweaty mess. I took multiple breaks during it to catch my breath and let my muscles recover. This one is definitely a butt-kicker!

Lunch

After my at-home WOD, I showered up and then reheated some Loaded Baked Potato Chicken Salad from the previous night’s dinner. I thought Mal took all of the leftovers for his lunch today, so I was psyched to see a Tupperware container of it sitting in the fridge. Woohoo! Oh, it’s the little things in life…

Dinner

For dinner, I cooked up some Stuffed Sole Fillets from Omaha Steaks that my mom gave Mal and me for Christmas.

When she asked me what we wanted for Christmas this year, I jokingly said “food” because, well, food is awesome and we really didn’t need or want anything specific. Mal and I just aren’t “stuff” people. Sure, we’ll buy something if we need it, but we’re not a fan of accumulating things, which is another reason why we want to simplify our life in 2013. I thought my mom would get us gift card to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, but she bought us a variety pack of goodies (meats, fish, loaded baked potatoes) from Omaha Steaks. Cool! I’m excited to try them all!

Along with a Stuffed Sole Fillet, I had some brown rice and steamed green beans. Good dinner!

After dinner, I had a killer cookie craving, so I whipped up a batch of Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies, which I enjoyed while folding laundry and watching Stars in Danger: The High Dive, which I only watched because I wanted to have a good laugh about it, but then I ended up kind of getting into it. Diving is no joke, and it looked really hard. I know I couldn’t do those dives!

  1. Just did the chipper this evening with my boyfriend – he made it through with all 70 burpees and I modified all the pushups to on my knees and made half of them star jumps. SUPER HARD! But so kick ass!

    And as to your question… both.

  2. This workout rocked! The burpees are what got me 😉 My time was 32 minutes so next time I know I need to work on powering through and not as many breaks. Good job, Tina, for tackling that workout around 20 minutes!
