Update to my Fitness progress

For this month, I am off of work on Thursdays and Fridays and it is cool, I prefer to have my weekends. I am finally going to try Almond Butter so, if any of you have a recipe that involves Almond Butter don’t be afraid to send it my way. I will also check out some recipes via Pinterest. My knee has been bothering me these past couple of days so I chose to do some low impact cardio by hopping on the Eliptical for 40 minutes with lots of resistance. I alternated in 2 minute intervals with resistance levels of 10 and 15. Let me tell you my glutes feel tight. I ended my workout session with an upper body circuit I introduced in my previous blog. I think I need to buy some gloves. Preferably Purple! I have a post for everyone, I have been putting in work on my tummy and it is looking better week by week. I have to watch my carbs, because I become bloated easily. Aging at it’s finest. Check me out!

Oh, and of course I need to end my post with my adorable dog Gizmo. Took him to the dog park and had him chase his frisbee until the end of time.

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
