15 Minute Burn

I tried a new upper body workout last night and it was AWESOME!!!

But first I follow TribeSports on Instagram and they had a Leg/Ab Superset and challenged everyone to do 5 rounds.(get the workout here)

 

SuperSet!

SuperSet!

140 calories, and half an episode of Bad Girls Club later I was feeling supercharged! Those 2 minute planks are no punk!

I subscribe via email to Womens Health magazine, and they always have a good workout they send at least once a week. I love the instructionals and the workouts are detailed and well explained. So, I received this workout and did 3 rounds of  each set and let me tell you I felt the burn! I used 10lb weights thinking I’m a BOSS and that workout at the end had me thinking the 10 lbs = 100 lb weights. Hope someone finds this as interesting as I did and challenges themselves to try it. I also did a warm up of sorts by doing a 400 meter run. You can get the workout here

Weekend Recap

This weekend in Houston could not have been more perfect.

 

We are actually having a spring, and it is wonderful! I set my Sundresses and hats out, hung out outdoors with my dog, went to the park, and enjoyed great company. I mean there were no complaints.  Despite me adjusting to this new work schedule that requires me to work the weekends, I went to a crawfish boil, ate well and worked out. The sodium in the crawfish, however, made me bloated. I never noticed how foods  inflate you and make you feel puffy. Cleaning up my diet has given me such insight. I see now, why I should stay away. I no longer see food as food, I see the fat, sodium and sugars it possesses  This change was needed especially with the goals I have in mind. I ran with my dog in the park for about two hours, Did a mini circuit that required me to do 3 rounds of 25 crunches 25 mountain climbers and a 1 minute plank (which has surprisingly gotten easier!) I might add 10 burpees in the mix next time just to get my heart rate up. I also did the little cross fit butt blaster routine and ended my day with a light jog back to my apartment.

 

I didn’t take any pictures but I did read a few books this weekend and shop I bought this romper from Asos

 

 

and some shorts and a tee from Forever 21. I guess you can say I was extremely productive? Maybe!
