Hello! We woke up to more snow! February has pretty much been like January around here. I was able to shovel my driveway first thing this morning for a pre-workout workout!
So, the other day a fit chick (Christmas Abbott) caught my eye on the Yahoo news page and I looked her up. Of course she’s a Cross Fit girl. I admire the hard work and effort it takes to stick to those workouts and strict eating. Impressive. I want her abs!
I’ve never really tried Cross Fit long term. I do live in a VERY fit town. We have several cross fit gyms along with a half a dozen regular gyms. When spring and summer hit we have several great running and biking roads and trails. I can’t wait to hit them!
I’m RARELY an excuses girl. I have to say though that being a Mom of 5 kids at this stage in my life makes it pretty hard to keep up my “wanna be a rockin’ cross fit girl” physique. Here’s to reality! However, I do believe that one can achieve amazing results with sheer stubbornness and dedication. We did this workout yesterday and all my friends were telling me how sore they were today. Give it a try!
Hit it Hard Tabatas
20 seconds on and 10 seconds off of each exercise. 8 rounds of each exercise before moving to the next.
Dumbbell stiff leg dead lifts
RUN (2 sets of ladders in the gym)
Ab twists holding a weight
Mountain Climbers twisting knee to opposite elbow
Reverse lunge with front kick
Butterfly sit ups
Curtsy side jump lunges
I have 1 week to lose 3 pounds. Today I weighed 130 and that was before any workout. I thought I’d share what I’ve been eating. I don’t think you need fancy and complicated recipes to eat well. This is what I’ve been loving lately.
BREAKFAST: 1 egg, 2 egg whites with veges and ham sauteed up or a protein shake.
LUNCH: Salad with cottage cheese, veges, chicken, EMERGE drink from MAX MUSCLE.
SNACKS: Cottage cheese and greek yogurt with stevia, cinnamon, and blueberries, nuts and raisins, ZONE bar, pear or apple.
DINNER: chicken and veges.
I found this pre-cooked chicken at COSTCO the other day and it is SOOOOOO good! 10 minutes in the oven. So easy!
I like being strict and seeing results. Workouts are more fun and I have more energy when I’m eating well. Here are my workouts for this week:
MONDAY: 7 mile run
TUESDAY: Jamie Eason Live Fit Legs and Back workout
WEDNESDAY: Tabatas and 5 mile run
THURSDAY: Body Combat and Jamie Eason Arms, Abs, and 20 minute sprints
FRIDAY: Shoulders and 30 minute sprints
SATURDAY: 7 mile run and body combat
Does that seem like a lot? Advice: Find what you love and do it! I haven’t modeled any workout clothes lately so I thought I’d add a pic. GOOD workout clothing is ESSENTIAL to me 🙂 This outfit is very comfy!
Hope you all have a Terrific, Magnificent, Beautiful, and Awesome day!
