On my way to one of 11 weddings, summer 2013
Our 40's themed church Christmas program was fun and I kinda wish we could bring back the 40's look! :)
Oh my word!! Got this absolutely amazing,and totally unexpected, gift in the mail tonight! Can not say thank you enough!! not pictured: Hip Hop Abs Dance Party!
30 min elliptical, 10 min arms, 20 min weights and 10 min dancing :)
Banana with 1/2 Tb natural peanut butter, 1 tsp semisweet chocolate chips, 1 tsp honey. After having a big and late lunch, I needed some calories and protein to finish the day but wasn't really hungry but kept wanting something sweet. Problem solved!
Mid workout selfie. I did the 100 calorie workout that MALIK2006 posted yesterday 2x and then went to the elliptical for 30 min. After the elliptical I did a 3 min arm workout and then the 100 calorie workout again. After that, I took this selfie (CHEESE!) and then went to the pool for a 20 min water workout before ending with 10 min in the sauna and a shower! Today was a good day :)
This is the 100 calorie workout
When you're doing a tough course on the elliptical and want to quit, but this is your view, it makes it easier to finish the course :D
I'm currently mid workout. I just did 20min on the treadmill doing a rough course at a 4 incline most of the time and then went to a different elliptical than I normally use and did 20 min there and somehow managed to find another rough course! I've been sitting for 10 min already and I am still DRIPPING in sweat! Next up, 100 calorie workout, arms and hopefully a little weights too.
Post workout selfie :) I didn't end up doing the 100 calorie or arm workouts or weights, but instead I did a butt workout and danced to Wobble, Love Shack and Cupid Shuffle :) Now shower and time to work
Sorry the pics are a bit cut off, but this is the butt workout. Do all of them, rest for 1 min, repeat 3x I loved this workout!
No kids at work means the coworker and I can do some booty work. I'm a bit sweaty now, so it's a good thing I work at a gym!
Working my legs and butt! 35 min elliptical done!
Post elliptical, getting sweaty
Booty work, 3x through, still sweating...
Crazy hair, don't care! Did an arm workout and then ended with 15 min dancing! Feeling great!
Further in distance, but fewer strides...I'm ok with this, especially since it was probably the longest 35 min ever since my workout partner was not at all focused and about 33 minutes of the workout was dead silent :(
Post workout, feeling good and feeling strong!
My hair was looking good before work...then I decided to work out lol Oh well, crazy hair, don't care! :)
So, I debated whether or not to share this because I am showing more skin than I normally like, but I tried his swimsuit top on the other day and you know what? I actually liked it and thought, "hey, I don't look too bad!" I don't know how comfortable I would be wearing it in public still, but at the same time, I'm having a hard time finding something I don't like about how I look in it. I consider that a win!
Post work workout, 35 min elliptical starting at an incline of 13 and going up to the max at a resistance of 10 the whole time. My legs are tired
Incline 13+ Resistance 10
Just keep going!!
I don't sweat, I sparkle! Just kidding, I sweat like a beast!
15 @ 300lbs, 20 @ 250lbs, 25 @ 200lbs, 30 @ 150lbs, 35 @ 100lbs and then in reverse, 30 @ 150lbs, 25 @ 200lbs, 20 @ 250lbs and 15 @ 300lbs
So, I'm glad I took a pic while I was on the elliptical, because today, it decided to play games on me. I was at the highest incline when I noticed, after feeling like I had been there forever, that the screen was frozen. It said the exact same time and said I was doing 0 strides/min. I decided to just keep going in hopes of it catching up...instead the thing restarted and dropped my incline so fast that I thought my legs were going to cave in under me.
Sweaty and I love it!! Plus I had to work off my free birthday cake batter frappuccino from Starbucks lol
This was my push to work harder today. Free birthday treat from Starbucks. I could have made a lower calorie choice, but I am ok with treating myself on a rare occasion. And I got it made with nonfat milk so that helps, right? :)
I got my birthday wish!! My nephew was born this morning!!! 9lb 2oz! So it's a good thing I've been working out my arms! :)
1 hour Hip Hop Abs and then went to gym to do leg press machine again. I did the same as last time, except I added 10 reps at 350 on both ends as well
Hip Hop Abs day 2 ✅
Elliptical ✅ Arms ✅
#crazyhairdontcare lol I tried two new classes today, Step Aerobic and Guts and Butts. Now time to go home and do HipHopAbs
HipHopAbs Ab Sculpt ✅ Crazy Hair ✅ Water ✅ Now it's time for a shower and food!
Day 4 Hip Hop Abs ✅ 45 minutes Zumba ✅ 10,000 steps before 11am ✅ Tonight is dinner and movie with the best friends! Feeling great today! :)
Changing it up today, ore workout selfie. I found out late last night that I was going to be working 9-9 today and I woke up too late to do my HHA at home, so I left for the gym early to hop on the elliptical for a bit BEFORE work and I will do HHA after work tonight. Tomorrow I WILL do HHA before work and maybe even the elliptical too, but if not, I will do Piloxing at home after work and Easter cantata practice.
I'm extremely tired and sweaty, but I did my Day 5 Hip Hop Abs AND I ended up getting in almost 23000 steps today because I was so slow at work!
Hip Hop Abs rest day, but since my family loves food, I did 1 hour Piloxing to end my Easter. I hope you all had a Happy Easter!! He is Risen!
Detroit Tigers and the exercise bike. Good combination to me!
Mid bike workout and I'm already sweaty
45 min and 15.3 miles later, I'm sweaty, hot, tired and have crazy hair, but feeling great!
So the elliptical that has froze on me twice already had the computer switched out of it to see if it was the computer or the machine and they wanted me to test it out...14 minutes later, the thing froze again and approx 5 minutes after that the machine reset. It's the machine, not the computer. :/ But I'm even more sweaty and heading to work!
Hip Hop Abs Day 8 also happens to be workout #3 of the day for me. Time for bed!
Hip Hop Abs Day 9: 1/2 done, I did Fat Burning Cardio but still have to do Ab Sculpt. I also did a 1 hr Zumba class at the athletic club. I hit 10,000+ steps by 10am today!! I'm hoping to do either elliptical or bike later as well as doing Ab Sculpt after work tonight :)
Hip Hop Abs Day 9 ✅ I wanted to get in another bike workout, but instead I went shopping with my mom. Tomorrow I pack for Texas to meet my nephew and WILL be getting in Hip Hop Abs, a bike ride AND an at home Zumba class. I gotta prepare for the two days in a car driving. :/
Hip Hop Abs Day 10 ✅ both Fat Burning Cardio and Ab Sculpt. I may not get in my bike ride or Zumba today after all due to the flu bug keeping me close to the bathroom :/ Hoping to maybe do 3 miles of Walk Away the Pounds later instead.
Long day on the road. Breakfast was an egg white delight w/o cheese or butter and a fruit n yogurt parfait. Lunch was this deliciousness from Cracker Barrel, Apple cranberry bbq chicken w/broccoli from their wholesome menu, less than 400 calories! Dinner was a few bites of ham but I did a lot of snacking on celery, cucumbers, tomatoes and a piece of Angel food cake. Making today my rest day from Hip Hop Abs and will just not rest on Sunday.
My stomach has still been sour so I still haven't been able to do Hip Hop Abs since Wednesday, but this lil guy is keeping me company :) I'm so in love! I'm one happy Aunt :)
Went to a park in San Antonio yesterday and found this! Does anyone else have one of these in their park(s)? I was so excited when I saw this and even took some time using the equipment provided before I went for a 2 mile walk. Every park should have this! :)
