I'm Back!

Wow, it has been awhile! Happy Sunday, and Happy Easter, friends! I got really derailed by a super germ, and a neck injury, but I'm back and here to catch up! I'm going back to last Saturday to catch you up on my workouts. The week before that, I didn't workout at all, due to being sick. I slept for about two days straight (seriously) and was super dehydrated, so it took pretty much a full week for me to feel back to functioning.

SO, last Saturday was my first day back to workouts, and I taught PiYo at the Y, and then did a team-teach Turbo class with Colleen and Secily at Refinery. SUPER fun, but I still felt a little "off." It felt SO good to get some exercise after a week of immobility, though!

For PiYo, I wore my VS Pink open-back T, and my GapFit side-tie shorts, with a VSX Angel sport bra underneath. (OMG! Not a single item of Lulu!) 

Here's the front of the outfit. :)

Sunday I was SUPER sore from Saturday's workouts, so I rested again. 

Monday we had a snow day from work (b/c we got TWELVE INCHES of snow on Sunday night/Monday!) so I did some catching up on my #madaboutyoga Challenge during the afternoon. :)

This is my VS Pink top, and my Lululemon Clam Diggers.

Monday night I waded through the snow to teach Turbo at Refinery! I was feeling ALMOST 100% back to normal, and it was so good to be back! 

For Turbo, I wore my VSX Y-back tank, with Lululemon sparkly pink Speed Shorts. 

Tuesday I taught PiYo at Refinery. Again, it was SO good to be back! I really missed my classes being away from them for a week! :)

I wore my Frond Gather and Crow crops from Lulu, and another Y-back tank from VSX. That's a Lulu Rise and Shine Pullover on top. :)

Wednesday I had a little bit of extra time after work, and it was a beautiful sunny day, so I went for a 2.5 mile run, then taught PiYo at the Y. A perfect combo of workouts! 

For my run, I wore my Pink Shell stripe Free to Be tank, pink Swiftly tank, and black Zella capris. Perfect!

Thursday I did a little bit of yoga practice on my own, and then taught Turbo at Refinery. I had a pretty big class, and was feeling super energetic, so it was a lot of fun!

For Turbo, I wore my black Chase Me skirt from lulu, my Pink Shell Cool Racer Back, and my Pink Shell Forme Jacket over it. :)

Friday I rested.

Saturday I taught PiYo at the Y! We had a full house, and everyone worked really hard! I am loving my new Lesson and playlist, so that always makes it more fun, too!

I wore my Frond Gather and Crow crops, and a white VSX tank.

Today, Sunday, I ran 4 miles. It was 60 degrees, sunny, and wonderful!
Then I did Handstand Prep for the last day of #madaboutyoga!
Here's my workout plan for next week!

Monday: Turbo + a little yoga, for a new yoga challenge that starts tomorrow!
Tuesday: PiYo + lil yoga
Wednesday: Run 3 miles, PiYo, yoga
Thursday: Rest Turbo with Secily at Refinery, yoga.
Friday: Run 3 miles, hot yoga
Saturday: PiYo, low-impact cardio run or walk outside b/c it's supposed to be 66 degrees!!!!!!!!
Sunday: Run 4.5 miles, yoga Rest

I'm super excited to be back on track with eating/working out, and BLOGGING! I've lost a few pounds (yay!) so I'm trying my best to stay on track with my nutrition and keep it off! :)

Anyone want to share your workout plan for the week?! I'd love to hear it!

Cheers to the week ahead!


  1. I'm so glad you're feeling back to normal and back to working out! I know how hard that is for you to be down and out. Who is putting on the April yoga challenge? Please share! I still have to get caught up with March's challenge LOL so behind!

    1. Thanks! It's the same people, plus there's another Challenge I might do called #bendyyogis. I'm for sure doing #yogafools. That one is by the same as #madaboutyoga. #bendyyogis is @fitqueenirene and @cheryld126.
