OK… maybe you aren’t like me and didn’t eat half a bag of tootsie rolls.. well if not, good for you (show off! LOL)
Either way, I’m sure you could still use an awesome workout!
Beginners can go through this once; if you’re advanced, go through it 3 times and then you can decide if its a Calorie Torcher…. or just TORTURE!

I flew “home” to Vegas this weekend to attend and work at the Olympia Expo. This is a HUGE event that I have attended every year since 2005. It is the event to see and be seen if you are in the bodybuilding and fitness/figure/bikini world… and guess what? I just did NOT want to be there this year.
Why? you ask…
Well, for one, I’ve already spent two months without my husband this summer and he wasn’t able to attend, so 5 more days without him wasn’t making me happy… but then it was just the overall feeling that everyone was trying their hardest to get noticed. They had dieted for months just so they could spray on some tan and show off their abs for two days and I hadn’t… and I really didn’t care.
See, I used to be one of them. I used to talk about the Olympia for months and count down the days, and do extra cardio to look my best and get spray tanned the night before, and show up hoping that I could meet someone who could “get me sponsored” or put me in a magazine. I used to restrict my eating, even on my anniversary because it was the week before!
I have just come to realize that REAL fitness isn’t about dieting for a one-day event. Most people in the real world could care less if I have a 6-pack, and my husband would probably love it more if I had a glass of champagne on our anniversary than doing 2 hours of cardio and going to bed early.
BUT… you know what?! I still had a blast being there, because I have made so many friends in the industry over the years, its always great to catch up , to meet fans and to just remember that some of them are really about promoting a healthy life and I can’t let the few that are there for show ruin it for me. To be honest, the majority of people who have longevity in the fitness industry are real, inspiring people, who work hard just like we do. I just need to ignore the show-offs and get on with my bad self 😉
With all that said now… here is a dang workout video! Boy was I glad to sweat again!!

- a timer (you can download Tabata App, Workout Timer, or Boxing Timer)
- two light- medium weights (3-8 lb. Dumbbells or soup cans)

Holla!! Ok I’m back in the swing of things, and before I post another Sweaty Betties Metabolic Workout, I wanted to do a GLUTE specific one because, after a 22 hour car ride… MINE needed it! I have a feeling a lot of you could use it too 😉
There are 6 exercises– done for 30-45 seconds each and you can repeat 3 times.
Do this at the end of your workout, or just add it any night while you’re watching your favorite shows
(twice a week is recommended)
