It’s Been a While!

I just wanted to say a quick hello and let you guys know that I will post this weeks workouts tomorrow! I have been unbelievably busy this week and I haven’t had time to post anything! But I lifted Monday and Wednesday (and I will again tomorrow) and I did some circuit stuff Tuesday and today. I will be sharing all of that tomorrow!

Have a great night! 🙂

Feelin’ Good!

Hello everyone 🙂

Today I am just feeling really good! I got back late from softball and decided to still lift and I am so glad that I did! 🙂 Lifting just make me feel so good! Plus today was an arm and shoulder day and I am pretty proud of my arms 🙂

And I have some new lifting gloves! My arms aren’t exactly where I want them to be but I sure am happy about them as of now 🙂

The workout I did today was the same as last Monday, I just increased the weight a little bit. Tomorrow I will be doing a circuit type workout maybe…? I haven’t really decided yet 🙂 But I will definitely post it!

 

Have a great night! 🙂

A Workout To Do With a Friend

Hello 🙂

Yesterday, one of my friends came over and we did a quick workout together! It was a lot of fun! I usually workout by myself so it’s nice to have a partner every once and a while! 🙂

Here’s the workout we did!

Also, today was leg day!! It was so hard but it was so great! My legs feel like jello right now and I’m sure they are going to be very sore tomorrow! 🙂 Here’s what I did for leg day today!

Sooo, yeah, that was my leg day! 🙂

Have a great night everyone 🙂

Second Lifting Session

Hello all 🙂

Today was my second lifting day and I felt so good! I actually love lifting! I have no idea why I wasn’t doing it before. I think it’s because I didn’t really know how to start or how to properly do it. But now I do and I’m so happy! This may sound strange but just after these two lifting workouts that I’ve done, I feel like I can feel my body getting stronger and it’s so cool! I love it 🙂 Anyway, here’s what today’s lift looked like:

I screen-shotted from Fitocracy again and there are repeats on there; it’s not because I did them twice, it’s just because I couldn’t fit it all on the screen 🙂

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to get up early and run and then workout with my friend in the afternoon! I’ll post the workout! 🙂

Have a wonderful night 🙂

One-Room Workout

Wow, lifting is no joke. I woke up this morning and I could barely move my arms. My shoulders were/are so sore! But honestly it feels great 🙂 I put this workout into this app I have called Fitocracy and I got over 1700 points for it! I thought that was pretty good 🙂
So, I screen-shotted the workout and here it is!

And then, the workout I did today was this

I called it a ‘One-Room Workout’ because, well, it can be done in one room! 🙂

Also, I have done my 100 push-ups and 50 pull-ups and I feel (tired!) but awesome! My shoulders are very sore but I can’t wait to lift again tomorrow!

Have a great night everyone! 🙂

Lifting

Hello everyone!

I am in such a great mood today! Know why? Because I started lifting today! Before I was only doing a little bit of weight training with my 15lb sandbag but today I actually did hardcore lifting and my arms are so dead right now but it feels so good! I think I’m really going to like lifting. I think it was time for a change in my workouts anyway! I will be lifting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and then doing my normal workouts Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Sunday is a rest day. Everyday I will also be doing core and 100 push-ups and 50 pull-ups (throughout the day).

I’m very excited!! I’m doing this for a month and we’ll see how I feel/look then! I’ll post my workout from today and tomorrow’s workout tomorrow!

Goodnight everyone 🙂

New water bottle :)

Hello 🙂

So yesterday I went to the mall and I actually didn’t buy that much.. I was really excited to go to Lululemon but I got there and tried on a bunch of stuff that I really liked but it was just way too expensive for me 😦 However, I did buy a new water bottle there! And I don’t think you guys know how excited I am about it!!

20130303-210402.jpg
There it is 🙂 It’s so great! I absolutely love it!

I took a day off from working out yesterday because after going to the mall and walking around all day I was just really tired. But I did a workout today! This workout that I did today was one that I found on Pinterest a while ago and it looked really intense. So, tonight I decided to challenge myself and do it! Here’s what it was:

20130303-210633.jpg
It took me about 20 minutes to do and it was pretty challenging! I think it’s a CrossFit workout…? I’m not really sure. But I liked it! If you try it, let me know!

Have a great night everyone! 🙂

Green Beans

20130302-000407.jpg

That was the insanely quick workout that I did this morning! I didn’t have much time to get ready this morning and I thought about skipping my workout for today but then I realized how sad I would be and that I wouldn’t feel very good that I had skipped it; so I decided to do it anyway! And I am so glad I did! It gave me less time to get ready but that’s okay, it was worth it 🙂

Today, my brother and I went with some family friends to an indoor water park and it was a blast! We had a great time and then went out to dinner after so today was an all-around successful day 🙂

Right now it’s about midnight and I am sitting in my room eating leftover green beans from the other night… And they are delicious 🙂

Tomorrow I get to go to the mall to do some spring clothes shopping! But we all know that’s going to turn into me buying a bunch of fitness gear that I don’t necessarily need but that I want 🙂

Have a great day tomorrow (today..?) everyone! 🙂

Jumping Rope

Hello!

Here is my arm workout from yesterday:

20130228-212832.jpg

When I was done with this workout, oh my god, I could barely move my arms! And now, paired with today’s workout (that I will share shortly), my arms are very sore and very tired.. And it feels great 🙂

Today’s workout was a jump rope circuit that I put together because I felt like I needed to do some cardio today!

20130228-213030.jpg
There ya go! I added a small ab bonus to do after 🙂

Have a great night everyone! 🙂

Late Night Workout

Hello everyone! 🙂

Yesterday, I decided to take a day off because I needed it and rest days are essential. Sometimes I don’t want to take a rest day because working out is usually the highlight of my day, but I know they are really important. So, yesterday, all day, all I did was think about working out 🙂

Today, I spent a lot of time in the car and didn’t get back until quite late. I just finished my workout! I do like working out at night though, the whole house is quiet and it’s just so nice!
Anyway! Here’s my workout:

20130226-230901.jpg

This workout took about 30 minutes. It was a quick one, but if you really go all out for the 45 seconds and really push yourself, you’ll definitely feel it!

Yesterday, my grandmother taught me how to make her homemade peanut butter and I have no idea why I wasn’t doing this before! It is honestly the easiest thing to do. All you have to do is buy a can of peanuts (make sure that the only ingredient is Peanuts) and put it in a food processor. That’s it! Leave the peanuts in the food processor for a while, stopping to scrape down the sides every now and then. After a while it will start to get really smooth, that’s when you can add some salt, to taste. Once you are done making it, you will need to keep it in the refrigerator if you don’t want it to be all runny. But, my, oh my, this peanut butter is delicious! And, so much healthier than store bought peanut butter!! Mmm, mmm!

Have a great night everybody! 🙂 see you tomorrow with another workout!
