Fitness Friday

June 24, 2016

Hey friends, happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a good week. Liam came home on Wednesday and we hit up our midweek market and loaded up on fresh fruits and veggies. It’s always so amazing how much better fresh, locally grown produce tastes compared to store bought. I had bought a pint of blueberries from the grocery store on the weekend and they tasted meh. But a pint I bought from the market taste like candy, as they should! I’ve been rocking salads for lunches and grilling like a boss for dinners now that I have a BBQ again. All this healthy eating is feeling real good.

Now let’s talk workouts shall we?


Yoga in the Park – to celebrate the first day of summer, I hit up yoga in the park for a juicy practice. Yoga makes me feel so good at the best of times, but practicing in a park with blue skies and the hot sun shining down on you just makes it that much better.

Ladder Flow Class via CodyApp – I had plans to run after work, but there was a torrential downpour and thundershower so that wasn’t happening. I knew I wanted to get some yoga in anyways to celebrate International Yoga Day and this class was just what I needed to warm up my body, challenge myself and work off a grumpy mood. I managed to stick side crow, which made me especially happy I rolled out my mat.


Ladder Flow Class via CodyApp – this class was upper body focus and man my arms were burning after.

I definitely planned to get more weight training in this week, but after starting the week off with yoga, it just called to me the rest of the week and I have no regrets about answering that call. My body has been just as sore as if I was doing weight training and I’ve definitely worked up a sweat every night. Kris recently wrote about the rollercoaster of motivation and I definitely ride this same rollercoaster. I always feel like such a slug when motivation dips but I feel like I can conquer everything when I have a week where motivation peaks.

This weekend we have plans to go see Finding Dory and a meetup with some of the blog squad girls and their kiddos. Fingers crossed the forecast changes so we can enjoy lots of time outside in the sun! Have a great weekend.

Do you guys ride the rollercoaster of motivation?
Ever switch up your workout plan because something else is calling to you?

Any plans for the week?

    I absolutely switch up my workouts. You have to listen to your body to avoid boredom, injuries, burnout, etc.
