Fitness Friday: Volume 3

It’s been a couple of weeks, but time to resurrect the Fitness Friday post!

Fitness Friday

First of all, this  24 Secrets Fit Chicks Will Never Tell You is pretty awesome if you’re looking for a giggle. 🙂

Saturday, May 14: Shoulders + Abs
My most and least favorite body parts to train, hah! I won’t lie – I skipped out on the jump roping my program had me doing, but usually when I skip something, I add more in. Plus, I love working shoulders to I usually add in a few workouts anyway!

Sunday, May 15: Quads, Glutes & Hamstrings
I had to close the gym this day, so I worked out in the morning, went home and showered and then went back to the gym. I love working out lower body, though. It’s where I’m the strongest and can do the most weight (obviously). Now if only the muscle would show up there as fast as my upper body muscle does … P.S. this ended with 100 leg curls with no breaks. HAHAHAHA no breaks, my ass (no pun intended).

Monday, May 16: Back, Cardio & Abs
Back to my early morning workouts! *yawn* But I’m always happy that I don’t have to go in after work, PLUS I’m in the greatest mood when I get to work in the morning. Endorphins – funny how those work. I’m sure my coworkers appreciate it. I ended up chatting with a lady, though, so I had to skip out on the 20 minutes of cardio, plus the rest of my rack pulls, but that’s okay!

I ended up coming back to the gym that night after dinner with my friend because I was in a super bad mood, so I cranked out 30-minutes of steady state cardio on the stair master and did some yoga/stretching. Felt much better!

Tuesday, May 17: Full Body Circuit
I hit almost every body part on this workout (obviously). Including 160 squats (half of those being pulse sumo squats OUCH). Ooooh, baby.

THEN I came back that night for a Top Gun themed cycle class that my lovely friend Brooke taught. I mean, Top Gun theme, Brooke, plus aviators? Sure, I’ll get my booty into the saddle. Though I suck SO much at cycle now that I don’t do it anymore!

Fitness Friday

Wednesday: Rest
Much needed!

Thursday: Glutes + Hamstrings
Deadlifts on deadlifts on deadlifts. I really need to learn to do those with a barbell instead of dumbbells, though. But they work just the same. Ended the workouts with 200 lunges because my coach is meeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

I did have my new tennis pro friend at work tell me if we’re still friends by Christmas or my birthday, he’d buy me Lululemon pants. I don’t know how I convinced him of that, but I’m going to see if I can push my luck and get him to agree to Christmas in July … or my half birthday, which is also in July.

Friday (Today): Chest + Back
I hate working out chest, not sure why. So I skipped out on all the pushups (baby move, I know), but I do love working back so I added in some more of those. I did do the other chest workouts, I just hate pushups and she had incline pushups, decline pushups AND regular pushups in there and I was like NO. I got in late this morning, too, so I only did a 5-minute warm-up and 10-minute HIIT sprints on the stair master at the end, so depending on how I’m feeling, I might go back tonight or take a walk after work. We shall see. But I did get to wear my favorite pants!

Hot Pink Pants

In other news, my diet has been completely off check lately. I feel gross and I’m up two pounds. I’m not super worried about the weight, more irritated with how I’m feeling. So I’m back at it today!

Did you get in any good workouts this week?
What are you up to this weekend?
Anyone want to start up a fundraiser for me to buy Lululemon pants?!

    You have such cute workout clothes. I tend to wear my old race T-shirts that aren’t that cute, haha. I should probably invest in some cute stuff. Looks like you had a good workout week!

      Aw, thank you! It’s funny you say that about the old race t-shirts because I wore my cut up Color Run shirt this morning! 🙂 I’m a big proponent of nice workout clothes, though. I’m excited to wear them because I feel good in them, so that helps me put them on and go to the gym. Or at least put them on … 😉
