Week Of Workouts

Happy Monday!! I maybe got 3 hours of sleep last night thanks to the lovely Piper and Jack. If I drank coffee, I’d most likely be on my 10th cup already. I have so much to do today, and was planning on getting in a leg workout during nap time, but...well we’ll just see about that. 

I wanted to share last weeks workouts, and start doing it regularly from now on. I log in all of my workouts HERE (I started from when I was 14 weeks pregnant), but I think it's nice to sometimes see specifics and get ideas from how other people workout. 

MONDAY: 

I worked out at home, during nap time, with a set of dumbbells, a kettlebell, and booty bands. It felt like such a good workout, and left me with the ole' noodle legs.

TUESDAY: 

Jordan has the kids for a couple of hours, so I headed to the gym and was planning on getting in a long, sweaty workout. A power yoga class was just starting when I got there, so I decided to do that instead since I figured it would be good to help my body deal with stress. 

WEDNESDAY:

Today was a rest day! I went on a long walk with the kids, but Piper was pushing her stroller - so it may have been long, but we didn't get too far. 

THURSDAY:

Jordan had the kids again for a couple of hours, so I headed to the gym and actually did get in a long workout this time. For the sprints, I run as fast as I can. They were killer, but felt so good.

FRIDAY:

I did this full body workout at home, during nap time again. I don't like doing HIIT workouts back-to-back, because it doesn't allow your body to properly reap the benefits and adapt, but since yesterday's HIIT wasn't very long, I didn't feel like I was pushing it. Again I used a set of dumbbells, a kettlebell, and booty bands, and it was a good workout!

SATURDAY:

I did this workout at home at night, once I got the kids down to bed. I wasn't feeling it, and tried talking myself out of working out 100x, but I got changed, turned on Gilmore Girls, and got down to business. The hardest step is always just getting started. Once I begin, it's just a matter of going through the motions. Plus, Gilmore Girls is a great distraction.

Follow Along Full Body Workout

Happy Tuesday!! I tried uploading this video to youtube yesterday morning, but it seriously took until 10:00pm last night for it to finish uploading #nottechsavvy.

I filmed my entire full body HIIT workout at the gym last week, and edited it so it's easy to follow along! Although I did it at the gym, it's def not required. The only equipment I used was a kettlebell, dumbbell, and a stepper. If you don't have any equipment, I'd recommend using milk jugs, soup cans, etc. in place of the weight - get creative! If worst comes to comes, you can still do the moves without any equipment! As for the stepper, a chair or a coffee table will work great!

Let me know if you give it a crack!
