Hey Guys! I hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July! I really can’t believe it’s July already. Where has this year gone?! It’s flying by so fast. I didn’t get a recap done last week because of the holiday. But, I did post about one really good dinner that we made. You can read about that epic food here!
Hi Friends! I hope you had a great week and an even better weekend! It’s been a little cold this week, but today it’s back up in the 60’s! I had a great week and got in some good runs and workouts. I was pretty happy with that. Usually this time of year it’s hard to fit those things in. But, if it’s important you’ll make it happen. I saw that on Pinterest this week and I’ve had it running through my head all week! more “Making it Happen”
Hi Friends! Welcome to this week’s recap! I had a really busy week of work, but I also had a solid week of workouts and runs. And, the weekend brought some cooler temperatures so it was actually tolerable to be outside! A busy week called for a relaxing weekend and that’s just what we did. I included my weekend recap in this one since we relaxed all weekend. Let’s go back to Monday. more “A Solid Week of Workouts”
I put together a list of a few of my favorite workouts. I love running, but I also like to change it up a bit and add in something different.
- Squat workout – I had a friend challenge me to the 30 day squat challenge a couple of years ago. I loved it so much, that I continued to do it periodically. I can tell a huge difference in the definition of muscles in my thighs when I do it. For the days when there are a lot of squats, I will break it up into sessions so I can get them in all in. I will also shake things up a bit and sometimes use dumbbells when I squat, or do different forms of squats. This is definitely a workout that works! I found this workout on shrinkingjeans.net They have a ton of good challenges!
- Tracy Anderson arms – This workout is hard!! But, I think that means that it works. It requires no weights, and it is 8 minutes of just moving your arms. That may not sound hard, but it gets so tiring when you can’t put your arms down. I may hate it when I do it, but I always am proud when I finish it.
- Blogilates – I started Blogilates since I haven’t been able to run. And so far, I love it. It’s something different, and it’s a challenge. I like that after the workouts, I really feel like I did something. I also love the community of Popstars that I have found and how supportive of each other they are. The picture is just one of the many challenges that Casey Ho has. I subscribed to the calendar on the app so I get all of the monthly workout videos. It’s just 99 cents a month!
