Work it Out

I seriously cannot get over how nice it is out today!

If its nice weather, I run outside. If its not..I normally don’t. This is why running is kind of a struggle because its something you have to do consecutively to be able to build up stamina!

Since today I decided I wanted to lift weights, and get a little cardio in, I planned a running route to the gym and back from the gym

To the gym was 1.75 miles (According to my nike running ap), and back was around .6 miles.

This workout made me NICCEE and sweaty

i know i look good. you don't have to tell me..LOL.

So anywayssss I made up my weight workout once I got to the gym on the spot, and from what I remember this is what it looked like!

disclaimer: I am by no way a fitness expert, I just try and base my workouts off ones I read on other blogs and workout classes I take at my gym.  

I completed 4 supersets, and then did a few back extensions and leg raises followed by a the crunch burner circuit below.

Superset 1: Repeated 3 times total

Time to refuel with a Green Monster Smoothie!

In the mix: 1 medium banana, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp PB2, 1 handful spinach, a few ice cubes. So refreshing! And I promise you can’t taste the spinach at all!

Time to go finish my womens studies paper I’ve been procrastinating on since 9 this morning…then I have work at 5:30, womp.
