Snow Day

16 Jan

Good morning everyone! I hope your Wednesday is going well! It was a snowy morning here in Massachusetts which made it hard to get out of bed but I wanted to get to the gym early….plus, I needed to work up the energy to clean off my car. Once that was done, I drove over to PF. Thankfully, even though the roads were bad, school was cancelled so town was quiet.

Cousins Shopping Day

4 Jan

Let me start this post by saying if you haven’t been to a Disney Store, please do yourself a favor and go. The minute you walk into the store you can’t help but smile and your day just seems a bit better…or at least that’s how I felt yesterday after my first visit. After getting a few gift cards at our family Christmas party, my cousin and I set out to the mall to pick up some new things. Although we didn’t have much luck with the shopping, we mad a point to stop at the Disney Store before leaving. My heart INSTANTLY melted. I felt like a little kid again. I was instantly drawn to all the Monsters, Inc. stuff because it is one of my favorite movies. I mean, how cute is this coffee mug?

Lunch

It was hard to stop myself from spending money. After wandering around for a bit and finding more things that I will be adding to my Christmas and birthday lists next year, we stopped by a Chinese food place for a late lunch. We were absolutely famished by the time we arrived and as always, the food hit the spot. We both decided to order the beef and broccoli which was delicious.

We hit a few more stops before both heading home to take much needed naps.

Workout

My workout for the night was a bit frustrating if I do say so myself. Although I like the gym that I go to, it’s on the smaller side so with all of the people who joined for part of their New Year Resolutions, it’s a tight squeeze. Thankfully, my workout was rather short. It was also the start of my second week of the Slim and Sculpt Program (mentioned here). After a quick five minute warm up on the treadmill, I hit the weights doing squats, dead lifts,  bench presses and rows leaving me VERY sore, but feeling accomplished this morning! Hopefully this second week of the program will be even better than last week!

Hope you all have a great morning! Look out for another post later on today!

Back to the Grind

1 Nov

I’ve been lacking a lot of workout posts lately (or I guess any posts for that matter) but this semester has been kicking my butt. I can’t wait until Thanksgiving and Christmas break to get a chance to sit down and catch up on posts!

As for my workout today, I felt pretty unmotivated until I got to the gym at which point I wanted to do everything. I lost track of time quickly which I find is amazing because it makes workouts fly by. I started out with an awesome “shredmill” workout that I found somewhere on the web. I wish I could remember where I found it because this is one of my favorite workouts lately. It’s long but like I said, time flies when you doing it because of the constant changes with speed and incline.

Get ready to break a serious sweat!

This one definitely had me breaking a sweat and I was pumped up for some supersets when I got off the treadmill. I found a blog the other day called The Lean Green Bean which had tons of workouts. Definitely worth checking out! Anyways, after browsing some of the supersets she had, I came upon an arm and abs one that I actually thought I would finish. Sometimes when it comes to supersets, I find that I get bored or get to a move that I hate and just stop. This one I ended up pushing through and I was definitely feeling it a few hours later.

As for the rest of the afternoon, I will be spending it catching up on some school work and getting chores done around the apartment. I am hoping that between those two, the days between now and November 20th when I go home for Thanksgiving will fly by! Fingers crossed! Have an amazing Thursday!
