Workout and Word of the Day #21

Happy Friday!

I felt really good today!  It is so nice to feel energetic and motivated.  I am happy that these qualities are replacing old habits and thought patterns.

Workout of the Day: Hinge Day + Steady State Cardio

I warmed up with foam rolling and some glute activation exercises with my bands.  After that I was warm and ready to go!

  • Weighted Glute Bridge 3 x 10
  • Goblet Full Squat 3 x 10
  • Romanian Deadlift 3 x 10
  • Dumbbell Side Bend 3 x 10

After lifting I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes and adjusted the incline until I reached 15%.  I have spent a lot of time struggling to find good cardio music and so far my favorite thing has been to listen to podcasts.  Do you have any favorite playlists or podcasts?  If so, please comment below to share!

Word of the Day:

wiseacre– noun

  1. One who pretends to have knowledge or cleverness: especially a smart aleck.

I know that I have met people who act like this and sometimes it is annoying.  I just have to remind myself that we all have our quirks and nobody is perfect.

It’s the freakin’ weekend and I am excited because I completed the first week of my new workout format.  This week I decided that I want to do lower body workouts (different movement patterns) on Monday / Wednesday/ and Friday.  Then Push Day on Tuesday and Pull Day on Thursday.  This worked out really well for me.  I felt strong and was able to level up my weights for most of my lifts.  I also added in some hiit training on the first two leg days.

I need to figure out what to do with my weekends workout / recovery-wise.  I feel good and confident about my workouts during the week, but I have been struggling with my weekends.  I think 2 straight days is too much recovery time for me.  Maybe I will spend more time outside or try some new youtube videos.

What are your plans for the weekend?  Please comment below to share!

  1. Congrats! You’re doing great! How about for the weekend a good soul stretch with Blogilates? Or maybe a Yogaclass, if that works for you. Or a relaxing bath with epsom salt. Or even better, a good massage! xoxo Sarah
