I thought I would kick off this post by sharing my workout from yesterday.
It started off with 20 minutes on the elliptical (I started with the resistance at level 9 and kicked it up a notch every 5 minutes). Then I moved along to this quick little leg workout:
I was pressed for time so I didn’t really work on my abs. The whole workout (including the elliptical) took me about 55 minutes. It was a pretty good little workout!
This past weekend, the weather was unbelievable. I mean, now I remember why I live in this city after all! Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.
Since strawberry season is in full swing, I picked up a whole bunch of them and made a little salad with a side of chicken for lunch before heading out for the day.
Look at these things!
Then it was time to take a cab over to Mayfest but look what I saw on the way there…A squirrel in a dress!!! HA!
Saturday, we played our kickball game (and lost again) and then headed over to the lakefront to play some croquet.
Well, the boys played croquet…This is what the girls did…
NOTHING! It was awesome!
This is probably one of my most favorite spots in the entire city (when it’s warm, of course) because the view is just awesome. Here’s a better picture of said view:
After croquet, we got home and the dogs were all like “excuse me, WHERE have you been all day?!?!!?”
Does anyone have any plans for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend?
-I’m not sure what we are planning because it is supposed to be quite chilly here in Chi so we shall see.
Hope you guys have a great rest of your week!!!
Hi there everyone! I have really been slacking in terms of lifting weights so naturally I took to Pinterest to get some ideas for workouts.
So I thought I would share some of the more appealing leg workouts that I came across the other day…
I must admit that I am quite addicted to Pinterest. At first, I was kind of bummed that my company disallowed it at work but now I am quite thankful; I would get NOTHING done!
I mean, they’ve got everything under the sun on that thing…recipes, interior design, fashion (one of my faves), fitness and the list goes on! AWESOME!
Anyway, on Saturday, I wrote up this little total body workout but my ankle is still bothering me so I didn’t want to push it. I thought I would share it with you guys anyway.
Speaking of my ankle, I think I’ve found a solution in terms of kickball…I’ll be “batting” lefty!!! I did it on Sunday and it went totally fine, which I was very happy about 🙂
If you try my workout, let me know how it goes!
Do you use Pinterest for any particular thing more than any others?
I look at fashion the most. This girl can takes all the help she can get in that department!
