Weekly Recap!

I forgot to blog yesterday, so I will catch up now! I had a good week of workouts, and a so-so week on food. I have set my calorie budget at 2,300 calories on weekdays, but I ended up eating around 2,400 most days last week. I was really hungry, though, and working out hard, so I didn't sweat it too much.

Here's what I did:


Monday is Turbo day at Evolve! I had a shot of Beachbody's Energy & Endurance Formula, and it really got me hyped up for class! We did Round 51 for the first time, and it was super fun! I struggled a little with the choreography, but did pretty good considering I had only "practiced" it while driving to and from work that day! I was a sweaty mess, but felt awesome afterwards!

Here was my outfit:

I wore my Flash Power Y, and indigo stripe Run: Speed shorts.

Tuesday I ran 4 miles in the morning. It was still dark when I started, but it was really cool, quiet, and peaceful. An awesome run! I didn't get a pic of my outfit because it was just too early. :)

Wednesday is a double-day for me. I did INSANITY: Fast & Furious immediately after work... This workout is NO JOKE. It's super hard, and honestly awful, but then it's over before you know it! After that, I had PiYo at the YMCA, our last week doing Lesson 21. We've been doing this lesson for WEEKS, and it was still super hard! 
I wore my sparkly pink Run:Speed shorts, and my Do More tank from Powder Blue.

Thursday I got up at 4:30 for my Early Bird Running Club, but all 4 girls were sick! So, I decided to do INSANITY: Cardio Power and Resistance instead. This workout only takes about 45 minutes, so I had extra time, and did some chores around the house, and made breakfast!
Rowan wasn't up to take my picture, so I did it myself. I wore my gray Power Y, and my sparkly pink Run: Speed shorts again.

Friday was a much-needed rest day! I left work at 3, and got my hair done. I tried someone new, and she did an AWESOME job!
Finally super blonde again!

Saturday I had double PiYo's, as usual! Last day of Lesson 21, and it kicked my BUTT! Super hard.
Bad lighting, but I wore my camo and Paris Pink Run:Speed shorts, and my gray and heathered Paris Pink No Limits tank. SUPER comfy!

I wore one of my favorite casual outfits shopping later that day:
This is my Flash Cool Racerback, and my Post Power crops that I wish I could wear EVERYDAY! So comfy and cute! A guy at the mall shielded his eyes and laughed at my top, but I didn't mind. :)

Sunday I did INSANITY: Plyometric Cardio Circuit, and it was TERRIBLE! I was dehydrated, had not had enough food, and super sore from Saturday's workouts. I thought I was going to pass out a couple of times, but I finished it anyway, and was glad I pushed through. Thank G for my Results & Recovery Formula!!

This week is vacation week, so I'm doubling up on workouts a couple days in anticipation! Here's my plan:

INSANITY: Fast and Furious and Cardio Abs (DONE!!)

Run 3-4 miles in the morning
INSANITY: Cardio Power & Resistance after work

INSANITY Pure Cardio
PiYo Lesson 22 (new stuff!)

Thursday we start driving, so I'll probably rest, and on Friday too.  The rest of the week TBD! Hopefully some beach yoga and/or a run on the beach! :)

Happy Monday, friends, and have a great week!

  1. Here are 3 kick-butt bodyweight exercises you can do to burn fat,
    stay energized, and avoid overeating.

    Bodyweight exercises help you burn fat shockingly fast, without any
    fancy equipment.

    1) Any Single-Leg Exercise
    The pistol (single-leg squat to the floor) is the most advanced
    1-leg exercise. But you can also do assisted single-leg squats with
    a band, or onto a bench, or even with a Stability Ball between your
    back and the wall.

    If you aren't ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian
    Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg
    hip bridges if you are a beginner.

    2) Decline Push-ups
    These are harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet.
    And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue
    your triceps, a "piked-hip position" to build your shoulders, or
    even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.

    3) Bodyweight Inverted Rows
    I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let
    your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It's the perfect
    compliment to a pushup.

    Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don't rest between exercises. Go
    through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each

    For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your
    final round through the circuit.

    "The dumbbell and bodyweight workouts are perfect for the small
    amount of exercise equipment I have at home, and I no longer regret
    not having a membership to a gym. Getting the best results I've
    ever had. Thanks again!"
