Workout Wednesday: Last Week's Workouts + a Recipe
Part of my New Year's Intentions was to stay accountable in my workout routine. I really slacked off during my third trimester and for the first....five and a half months after Madeline was born.
I definitely noticed a difference in my strength and just how I felt overall when I wasn't working out regularly. I've made progress already with a couple months back into my routine but I still feel like I've got some work to do. There are days that I finish a cardio workout and just feel beaten instead of energized but I'm learning that it is all about the journey.
I definitely won't post weekly but I'm going to try to check in with a log of what I am doing for exercise every couple weeks and a healthy recipe that I am loving.
Last week's workouts:
Monday: Cize Crazy 8's
Tuesday: Barre Legs (Beachbody on Demand) + Upper Body Fix Extreme (21DFX)
Wednesday: Ten minute hardcore (21DFX) + Cardio Fix (21 Day Fix)
Thursday: Hilliard Studio Method Total Body Barre
Friday: Cize You Got This
Saturday: Lower Body (21 Day Fix) + 10 Minute fix for Abs (21 Day Fix)
Sunday: 4 mile family walk
Right now, for my workouts, I am sticking to mostly Cize for cardio and the 21 Day Fix original or extreme. You can find those programs here or get the whole year of both (and dozens other workouts) on demand here.
Favorite Healthy Recipe of the Week:
I made Skinnytaste's spaghetti squash boats. These were awesome. I did switch out her homemade marinara for Target's Simply Balanced organic marinara because I have a tiny little person creating
chaos in the kitchen while I cook. We've made the chicken version of this before and love it and I have to say this one also satisfied that pasta craving without all the guilt. If you're following a meal plan, just be sure to measure out that cheese so you don't go overboard. Recipe here.
