Before we get started don’t forget about my Father’s Day Recipe Round-Up I posted last week in case you are still looking for some fun inspiration!
Fitness was interesting this week, I don’t know how to feel about it except that I added in walking to count. Usually, I don’t really count it since I don’t get very much daily steps working from home I figure it’s just part of the deal. More and more as it heats up I’m starting to count it. Especially since my rib issues have set me back in what I can do in strength training.
What I am proud of is that I got two solid cardio workouts and two decent circuit workouts. They weren’t exactly impressive but they felt good and that’s what matters!
Thursday (6/14) – walk 2 miles
Same as Tuesday but I added tricep dips to the end of circuit 2.
Wednesday (6/13) – walk 2.5 miles
Tuesday (6/12) – walk 2.5 miles
I did a light circuit this is what it looked like:
- QL side stretch
- Side Planks
- Resistance Band Pallof Press
- Reverse Lunges x 10 each
- Bicep 21’s
- Medicine Ball Squats x 8
Monday (6/11)– walk 2.5 miles + swim 25 minutes
Sunday – off
Saturday (6/10) – Zumba
Friday (6/09) – Walk 2 miles + Trimotus
I’m not sure if I shared this before but adding 1/4 cup of this cranberry juice to my water really helps me get the 40 ounces down! Plus since women are more prone to UTI’s in pregnancy I figure it can hurt in that department.
More updates on food coming on Monday with my 20-21 week preggo update!
Lot’s of link love this week!
