    Oh my goodness! I am so intrigued by this workout! Not to mention, that is so great of you to still get out there and find a way to stay fit given your circumstances! You are truly an inspiration!

      Thanks Kacie! I’m excited to get started with this workout too. After just two days, I can tell it’s going to be good and hard. Mainly because it’s challenging my body in a different way, particularly working on my core and balance. Will keep you posted!

    I have never heard of JCORE, but it sounds great. Especially with time requirements (and space). Seems really reasonable. I’m interested to hear how you find it!

    • Christine

      Yes! The space, time and lack of equipment requirements are definitely what drew me to the program. I’ll be posting some more updates as I continue along.

    JCORE sounds like a great workout plan! I’m so glad you are at a point in your rehab that you can start to get back into more workouts. Good luck!

      Me too! I’m glad to be working a little harder. I was starting to feel sluggish and blah. Thanks Angela!

    Sounds like a great plan! I’ve heard of JCORE but didn’t know much about it, thanks for the info!

    I had a great weekend :) Lots of relaxing!

      I’m excited too and I will definitely be posting some updates. I think that it’s great, especially for parents, since it is only 20 minutes a day. I did my workout while my kids were taking a bath (supervised by grandma!)

    Check out skinnytaste.com for food suggestions. It’s a dear friend of mine with an amazing blog…she does calorie count per serving size.

    I am getting a little antsy with my yoga and running only fitness routine. JCORE sounds appealing to me since you don’t need weights (I am a firm believer in the power of body resistance) and only a small space.

    I can’t wait to hear how it goes for you! I may hop on board!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      I too really like that it doesn’t require equipment and seems pretty manageable. I love trying different strength training routines so I’m excited to try this one out. Will definitely keep you posted!

    I haven’t heard of this, but it sounds pretty neat and it fits into your needs right now! FOUR months have passed already? damn, where does time go! You look great, btw, just so you know, you would never know you were recovering from a knee injury!!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      I know, can you believe that it’s been 4 months already? I can’t believe it practically the end of July! Time has been flying by. And you are too sweet. xoxo

    This sounds pretty cool–20 minutes/4x/week? Seems doable, which I like! I’ll be interested to hear how it goes for you!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      Totally doable, right? Over the 40 days, it works out to 8 hours total. What??! Seems crazy and my skeptical side started kicking in but man, he works you in those 20 minutes.

    JCORE sounds awesome! I’ve never heard of it! So glad you are linking back up in the Weekly Chase! I read Divergent and Insurgent too…LOVE those books!!! Hope you get your rest this week! And good luck with the eating!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      I figure that now that I’m done with the books, I should be able to get some sleep, right? Unless I start re-reading them…

    I’m thinking this JCORE thing may be perfect for Chris and I to give a try. We have the space but I am not a gym girl and Chris doesn’t really have the time and when he does, he is either playing with girls, sailing, kayaking or biking. (all good things but he wants to mix it up a bit)
    We had a great weekend. Yesterday we spent the day out on a friend’s boat with their girls and our girls and it was a lot of fun with a lot of laughs!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      It definitely seems like JCORE meets so many people’s needs especially with regard to the time, space and lack of equipment required. I’m excited to see how it goes and to mix things up. Your weekend sounds so nice!!

    Can’t wait to see your progress! It sounds like a cool program. Recovery sure is frustrating, but you have been doing great! Just keep at it, and remember to take time and recognize all the progress you have made so far.

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      Thanks Krysten. I know you know the recovery process all too well and you are doing amazing. Thanks for the reminder. Funny how quickly we can get impatient with our progress and ourselves.

    wow that sounds like a great workout, it kind of reminds me of Insanity with the fit test. I cannot wait to hear how it goes.

      July 24, 2012

      Thanks and I plan on posting some updates as I progress through the program.

    I’m excited to see how it goes for you! I saw JCORE at some point, maybe on the Fitfluential blog? Can’t remember. I signed up for Tina’s Boot camp which should be a fun challenge, too. I’m so much better at strength training if someone is holding me accountable and telling me what to do!

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      I’ve heard such great things about Tina’s Bootcamp! That should be a lot of fun too. There was a JCORE twitter chat and a post on the Fitfluential blog a week or so ago.

    You have to keep us posted! I love the idea of a 20 minute workout. I’m a big fan of the short and sweet HITT workouts. This sounds like something that can easily fit into a busy schedule (and a small space).

    • Christine
      July 24, 2012

      I love the idea of short, intense workouts too and I will definitely keep you posted. Seems like this kind of program would fit so many people’s needs.

    Super jealous, I would love to give JCORE a try. Can’t wait to see how you do with it.

    That sounds really exciting. I’ve never heard of it.. so – I can’t wait to see how it is. My weekend was CRAZY as always ;) //// we have decided to become our church’s new youth leaders – so it should be interesting. More things to keep us energized!

    • Christine
      July 26, 2012

      Oh my goodness! That’s fantastic and congrats. Yes, I bet it will definitely keep you busy but energized!

    I’ve never heard of it – it sounds awesome though! Our weekend was good. Not as busy as some of the other ones, which made it nice and relaxing.

    • Christine
      July 26, 2012

      A not-so-busy weekend sounds fabulous. Sigh…

    Never heard of JCORE but it sounds interesting! Love the workout plan and that it incorporate healthy eating as well. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

    • Christine
      July 26, 2012

      I can tell you that after 2-3 days of doing the program, I’m sore! It’s hard but totally manageable since it’s only 20 minutes. I think that the hardest part for me is cleaning up my eating habits. I’ll definitely keep you posted!

  26. Holly Johnson

    JCORE sounds great, thats awesome that he called you! So cool! I can’t wait to see your progress. Hoping you had a great week with your goals, cant wait to hear about them on Monday!

    Thanks for the links, I’m interested in JCORE now.

    I’ve heard such good things about Divergent…though I still have the last book of The Hunger Games to finish. I’m really bad at reading actual books these days.

      I too an terrible at reading actual books but have recently been on a kick. I love getting lost in a story. Divergent was so good! I seriously couldn’t put it down and it was definitely interfering with my life. JCORE is pretty good and I’m liking it so far. I’ll do a real review halfway through the program and at the end.
