Hiit Mama workouts are timed so time yourself and go as FAST AS YOU CAN!! That is how you get the cardio in. If you are a new Hiit Mama, just start with the workout of the day (WOD)...no need to go back to the first post because we will eventually repeat all those workouts. Make sure and post your time in the comment section so you can track your progress! Also, there are video demos of each exercise we do down the right side bar.

Califit Mama Erin

"I started the challenge wanting to lose those last 5-10 post four kids pounds. Instead, I gained two! I have checked and double checked all of my measurements and yes, I've gained weight, lost a few inches around my waist, and built up some muscle. During this challenge my daughter turned eight and for the first time ever, I heard her use the word "fat." This has completely changed how I need to view myself as I am the one setting an example for her. As a family we exercise and go out for bike rides or hike. As a family we eat healthy with the occasional dessert (once-a-week-until-it's-gone rule in our house). As a family, WE ARE HEALTHY! She is 100% healthy and normal. AND, I am 100% healthy and normal. I am ecstatic that I was able to tone up so quickly. Do I need that number on the scale to drive my attitude about myself? NO! Maybe in the past I was tied to numbers but now I need to show my daughter that I can eat, exercise, have the occasional dessert, AND be HAPPY with my body. My body is just a shell of my true self and while I rocked that pre-baby 6-pack, my muffin top (oh how I wish we could spot reduce!) is a reminder of a greater daily challenge I have to worry about than just my own self-absorbed self image.......I am laying the groundwork for how my daughters will one day view themselves. I want them to see themselves as beautifully as I do. Thank you so much for these at home work-outs! They are very challenging and yet very conducive to a mom of four's busy schedule." -Erin

I used to get a sore bottom all the time too then I bought a $10 abmat (I have off-brand "Yes4All" from favorite store-Amazon)! It's great! Or put a rolled up towel under your bottom/low back.

Did first and last set of thrusters with 40# and second with 20#. I just should have done them all with 40#!

I finally got tired of just using a basketball for the wall ball so I made my own "ball" by duct taping two 5# plates together. It did the job and I like my little thing I made! ;) I'll use that until I can get a proper medicine ball.

Erin! Thank you so much for your post! I'm in the same boat, want to lose that 10 lbs of baby weight and am struggling with my self image while trying to raise my boys to love themselves, it's so hard sometimes. You look fantastic! And love how almost all the women do far have gained a pound or two or lost no weight but they've lost inches - goes to show how much muscle is really healthier for you and weighs more. So happy I found this blog! Such an inspiration.
