Hi Everyone,

I had so much fun with this workout! I incorporated some new moves that I really enjoyed, and switched up some of my regular moves to change the challenge. When I got home from work yesterday I talked Jesse into going for a nice run in the cold with me. We said “hello” to someone we passed, and he told us we were crazy for running in the cold! We ran 3.5 miles. 

I went through two rounds of today’s workout. I felt really great, and motivated. I was “In the Mood.” It helped that the song “In the Mood” by Brian Setzer Orchestra was playing in my head. I went to my best friend from high school’s birthday party, and we got to swing dance to this song on Thursday. It’s been almost 12 years since the last time we did any swing dancing, and it was a lot of fun!

I am still loving my Affitnity sports bra and pants. Be sure to like their facebook page for the latest updates on sales and new products: www.facebook.com/Affitnity

I hope you enjoy the workout, and have as much fun as I did! Have a great day!
Melissa

Heel Tap Hip Lift: Extend your arms over your head, shoulder blades lifted from the floor. Heels come together and toes point out. Tap your heels together as you raise your legs until they are directly above your hips and your body forms an L. Using your lower abs lift your hips from the floor. Tap your heels back down until you return to the starting position.

In a slow controlled motion rotate your upper body until you are facing the side. Return to starting position and repeat.
