Weekend roundup and a tabata quickie

Friday: worked out. A lot. Like, ran those dang stairs in downtown for an hour. Did you miss my photo on instagram? Probably. So, here’s a pic of my new office

Fast forward a bit, and this is what I surprised Tyler with

Homemade sangria, STEAK, grilled portobello and baked taters.

Hi, doesn’t that look delish? Ok, bye.

Saturday: I did my hair and put makeup on. But that’s not all!

Tyler took me downtown for lunch. We also walked around a bit and enjoyed the wonderful sunny day.

Lots on the agenda today. BUT, I leave you with this:

Feeling sluggish? Have 16 minutes laying around? Way to feel awesome and maybe sweat a little bit?
(hint: the answer should be yes to all of these. Unless you dot feel sluggish… Then good for you!)

Try this 16 minute tabata workout!
tabatas are 4 minutes sets where you work hard for 20 seconds, rest for 10 and repeat 8 times
1st set: jumps- not just your run-of-the-mill jump rope. I want you to jump HIGH
2nd set: weighted pliΓ© squats- get LOW
3rd set: stability ball crunches- if you don’t have a ball, do regular crunches on the ground with your legs straight in he air..FEET FLEXED
4th set: overhead press… You’re only doing this for FOUR minutes (with breaks) so grab a heavier set of weights and really push yourself!

Feel better? I do just typing this. Hasta luego!
