Weekend Workout (Strength and Cardio)

Hello and happy Saturday! We are off to see the progress on our new home, then heading to my husband’s shop for a bit. I am hoping to grab a favorite local food place by there to bring home for dinner.

Anyway…

This morning I was able to get in an outdoor workout during K’s nap. My husband had the monitor, so I had a chance to take a little time for myself. It was quick, sweaty, and felt so good. The weather was overcast and warm, but had a lovely breeze!

THE WORKOUT:

*5 minute run

*Legs: 3 rounds with weights

10 squat to calf raise, 10 squat pulses, 10 single leg deadlifts (both sides)

*5 minute run

*Arms: 3 rounds with weights

10 around the worlds, 10 bicep pulses, 10 push-ups (I did incline)

*5 minute run

*Full body: 3 rounds with weights

10 curl press, 10 lunges (both sides), 10 overhead triceps

The whole workout took my a little over 30 minutes!

*Disclaimer: I only post what works for me and my body! You can absolutely tailor this to your specific goals.

I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!

With love,

Carly

Fit Friday-This Week In Food And Fitness

Hello, all! It’s been a sunny Friday here and I’m so ready for a long weekend. My week felt so long and daunting. We are staying in town this weekend and I am looking forward to getting some extra sleep (if my internal clock lets me).

My other weekend plans include: time with friends, grilling, getting a base tan, prepping for teaching next week, and cleaning.

Anyway, this week has been full of good food and fitness. Here’s the recap:

MONDAY:

I woke up early and taught my online classes before work.

After work, I went to my regular Monday night workout class: the C9 Challenge. It is such a good full body workout.

For dinner, we made pizzas and they were so good! I found a whole wheat crust on sale, and used turkey pepperoni, ham, and mushrooms!! Yum!

TUESDAY:

I woke up early yet again to teach! I am loving my side job even though it calls for early hours.

After a long day day at work, I did a hiit style workout on the treadmill.

For dinner, we had a frozen PF Changs meal (beef and broccoli) and put it over rice. I had a salad with mine. It was so tasty!!

WEDNESDAY:

I didn’t teach that morning, so I decided to sleep in a bit. It was so nice!

After work, I did a short lifting session at my gym. It felt good, but I’ve been taking so many classes that I had to get back into the groove of lifting on my own.

Dinner was roast with potatoes and carrots!

THURSDAY:

I started the morning with a spin class! It was a good one!

I have been teaching most mornings, so it was such a treat to workout before work and get Starbucks!

After work, my favorite co-worker/work bestie and I went to Coopershawk winery and drank wine on the patio. It was delicious and much needed after a doozy of a day!

My mom met us there and we all talked for a while.

For dinner, my mom and I got Whole Foods to bring back to my place. I loaded up a salad with so many tasty things, including their delicious tofu.

After dinner, we watched Hollywood Game Night! It is such a fun show.

FRIDAY:

This morning started out with teaching an online class, followed by coffee with my mom before she headed home and I went to work.

We have 3 days left before summer break!!! Ahhh!!!! YAY!

After work, I went to the gym and did the stair climber and treadmill while listening to my current favorite podcast. It is called My Favorite Murder. I love all things crime and this does not disappoint.

Dinner was a veggie burger and sweet potato fries.

Now we are watching basketball (Go Cavs)!! The game will be on late, but I know I will fall asleep on the couch haha!

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!!

With love,

Carly
