3 Round Workout

Today, after having a mini meltdown in the cereal aisle at Safeway (thanks for the pep talk, ma!) I decided to get outdoorsy. First up, check out my outfit:


I took Layla downtown to enjoy this one sunny day




Haha yes, I did make her climb those dreaded stairs. She actually refused to go up a few sets, but after much coaxing through the art of the treat-bribery, we made it to the top.


Then, I got my swell on in the front patio.

I did quick sets of strength, cardio and abs (in that order).
Round 1 (done 2x)

    Front lunges with bicep curl
    Weighted squats
    Reverse lunges with hammer curls
    Jumping jacks
    Leg lifts

Round 2 (2x)

    Kettle bell swings
    Overhead press
    Tricep kickbacks
    Jump rope
    Alternating crunches

Round 3 (2x)

    Bicep curl w/overhead press
    Lateral raise
    Weighted alternating cross punch

and there ya have it!

Dinner with my man (announcement tomorrow!)

Feel Good Music

I don’t know if you could tell, but lately I’ve been feeling pretty dumpy. And when working out, chocolate and wine can’t do the trick, music is the remedy.

Here are my three feel good beats (and album) of the week:

1. Brokenhearted- Karmin
2. Electric- Shawn Desman
3. Don’t Stop the Party- Black Eyed Peas
4. The entire Project X soundtrack. It’s the bomb, yo. (Especially Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi)
