OK, this I find ODD, her low carb cheese cake is a FREE meal, but her french toast is a earned meal, Look at the ingredients! I get it - French Toast is high carb, but WAY less calories. So take the good with the bad - IMO.
I think the French Toast with the bacon and fruit would fill me up more than a sliver of low carb cheese cake. So much dairy and nuts.

  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped (Ghirardelli)

BR.TV Advanced BootCamp is Coming Soon - so they say! I got an email, and it is posted on their FB page - again, asking for folks to sign up. I did sign up quite a while ago. Someone commented with - I signed up a month ago - when is it coming. Made me laugh. Exactly! When?! I get the teasers, but why not just answer the question? Even with a We're not sure - working on it for July 1-10th, kind of thing.....
They workouts do look pretty hard. I am so curious to see if it is only 12 minutes of 50/10. 

I know some of you have been posting here in the comments back and forth with other workouts that you do and it is great! I love the comments. Keep them coming. 

We've also heard from Jacqui and as soon as I hear from her with new workouts I will post them here! 


  1. Yay! Excited to see what Jacqui is doing :)
    I like Zuzkas longer routines like this. I may save it for this weekend when I have a bit more time. Waking up at 4:30am to do my boxing training kills me :/

    1. Lol, I wake up at the same time 7 times a week because of my training. If you love something, you have to change your priorities sometimes :)
      Btw Gina, what kind of workouts are you doing currently? Do you follow any program or do you own thing?

    2. Only time I can squeeze it in before work. I'm a RN, work 12hr shifts. My shift starts 7am, so it works! I tend to go on my days off as well, to remain consistent. I'm usually in bed by 9 or 9:30!

    3. Lena - I just realized I never answered your question. I follow Bret's Get Strong program right now and do some yoga. :)
