    Connected with my body and my husband. Nice to start the day in a healthy way together!

  3. Amber Murphy 11 months ago

    Awesome work out. I have done lots of work outs 30 minutes or longer and they work but are hard to maintain. This is perfect for my busy working mom life and I will be signing up for the 30 minute programs. These 10 minute work outs start my day out on a positive healthy note encouraging my day without making loose sleep or run late! Thank u!!

  26. KRISTIE CLEAVER 11 months ago

    THANKS for the YouTube link!! It allows us to view from our TVs πŸ™‚ Which may be why you included to begin with, but it was new to me.

    10 min. flew by, but it was a solid workout. My youngest (11 yrs) did the workout with me & we’ve both committed to continuing. Great way to connect.

    Thanks, Robin.

  28. Monica 11 months ago

    Thank you so much! This challenge is exactly what I needed to jumpstart getting back on track again. I have really let myself go and needed something to make me feel like I have achieved a small goal which will lead to big goals. Looking forward to the next 20 days! Thank you again!

  38. marilyne 11 months ago

    Thank you!! I hadn’t worked out in YEARS…… the “10 minutes a day ” is what pushed me to try…
    I CAN at least spare 10 minutes to try and improve myself… and Wow- Day 1 looked easy but was surprisingly (the right amount!!) of tough because I hadn’t realized how out-of-shape I am… but I did it..and I feel GREAT!!!! So, thank you!! Can’t wait for tomorrow!!

  42. melissa 11 months ago

    Day 1 DONE !!! Harder than looks but feel good. Felt it mostly in upper thighs. Not sure if that’s right or from bad form. ???

  43. Lori 11 months ago

    Done – thank you!

  44. Ruth 11 months ago


  45. Mindie 11 months ago

    I feel like I worked my legs more than my stomach. Could I have been doing it wrong, or am I just finding that my legs are out of shape too? (Which I really already know that I’m out of shape all over, lol) One down, twenty more to go!

  46. Sheri 11 months ago

    I’m playing catch up already – thanks to friend Kylie for inviting me and the ladies in our Grounds of Grace group. That’s nice built in accountability for me!

  47. Shirley 11 months ago

  48. Ann 10 months ago

    Well I’m two weeks behind, but I started day 1 today (Mar 20). I decided to save the emails and start on my spring break (I’m a school teacher) so I would get in the habit for a week and then keep going once I get back into my overlong choir teaching days :). THANKS this was a great way to start my break!!!
