Good morning, friends! How was your weekend?
Ours was pretty low-key. Danny and my dad did some fixing up around our house and I worked for a bit on Saturday. We have a new program at my gym called Fit for Life and I train a team of ten people against two other teams. It lasts 12 weeks and it started today. I have the early morning team at 5:45 am so that’s going to take some getting used too!
Danny and I worked out together on Sunday. We did glutes, hamstrings, and core (Danny likes to throw in a few bicep curls).
We finished up with a some cardio. Cardio isn’t always the funnest so we tried to make it a little funner by doing a cardio partner workout. One of us did an exercise while the other one rested. The point was to do your exercise fast so the other person rested for a short time.
Here are the exercises we did:
- laps on the track (I rested very little for these since Danny is so fast!)
- in and out jump squats x20
- medicine ball slams x20
- sit-ups x20
- plank – as long as possible
We did each set of exercises four times each. It was a great workout especially after working legs.
I’ve still been following my workouts and macros from my coach at Best Fit Body. I have a little less than two weeks to go. I was doing really good for about three weeks with sticking to my diet perfectly and then I had a few off days. I was upset about it but honestly not every single day can be perfect.
I love to workout and have no problems there but I also love food. No one is perfect. You just have to get back on track right away which I’m doing.
I’m trying to add more green veggies to my day and I came up with a new breakfast that I have been loving – scrambled egg whites with asparagus, spinach, onion, and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge.
The Laughing Cow cheese makes it so much better! I think cheese and chocolate can make any food better!!
Yesterday, the weather was beautiful in Chicagoland – almost 70 degrees. We had fun playing tag with Baylee outside. That dog is crazy! I love her crazy face in this picture.
Of course, today is back to being cold and in the 30s. Not fun.
I hope you all have a great day!
