Slesh’s bridal shower this weekend was beautiful and went off without a hitch. Here’s a sneak peek picture:
I’m hoping to be back to a somewhat regular blogging schedule this week, and I want to start out with my workout log from the past week. Despite being busy, exercise was still a priority for me (it always will be). I wasn’t able to do any heavy lifting last week, I had to take an extra off day than I normally do, and I also decreased the duration of exercise on some days. It’s all good though, and I’m really happy I was able to squeeze in four solid workout sessions during such a busy spring week.
Last Week’s Workouts
Tim and I woke up early and went for a run before heading to my grandfather’s house for Easter Sunday. I also did some “up the ladder” core work: 10 star v-sits, 20 leg lifts, 30 heel taps, 40 plank kick and tucks, 50 bicycles, and a 60 second plank.
This was another at home workout day, and another workout I did with Tim before our Marathon Monday festivities. I threw together a workout where one of us did a move on the Jump Sport while the other did a move on the bosu. We did each move for 60 seconds, then switched.
Two A Day Tuesday. Took Kickboxing with Liz, then taught my On Fire Workout in my class.
Taught my class with a 3-2-1 format that consisted of three strength moves (12 reps each), 2 cardio moves (30 seconds each), and one core move (1 minute each) per set.
This Week’s Workouts
- Sunday: Yesterday I was able to get back to the gym for some heavy lifting, and it felt GREAT to be back in the weight room. I did 20 minutes on the spin bike, followed by legs, and I also experimented a bit with the trap bar for my deadlifts. Now I can’t stop reading about deadlifts and the differences between the traditional, sumo, and trap bar variations. Lifters, which do you prefer? Tips?
- Monday: Tonight I am subbing for the 6:30pm Upper Body Express and 7:15pm Interval Training classes at Oak Square
- Tuesday: Two A Day
- Wednesday: Off
- Thursday: Teaching my 6am
- Friday: Working from home, so I’ll likely head to the gym for another lifting day, or maybe do a run. We’ll see!

Welcome back! Working on my walking to running program. Yes,me…running. Let’s see how it goes…
Missed ya on your blog, but understand how busy it is for you! My excitement this past weekend is that I did over 2000 stadium steps yesterday for the “Fight for Air Climb” for the American Lung Association. Tough, but lots of fun! Did it in 14 minutes, 13 seconds. Pretty cool for first time and not know what to expect.
Yay I won! 🙂 Life has been super crazy here — getting out of my crazy season at work but into the crazy last couple months of wedding planning – yikes!
