Weekly Work Outs + Friday Favorites

Hi, Lillian here and first I want to say that OBVIOUSLY Megan and I need to work on our consistency with blogging (hello several weeks of silence) but aren’t too shook up about it. One of the main reasons we decided to tackle a blog together was that a) easier to post with two people and b) we both wanted to blog but didn’t want the pressure of running one solo. Don’t be mad at our lack of posts at times. It is simply a reflection of when our lives get a little busy and the blog takes a backseat for a bit.

ANYWHO – here was my workouts this week (I am in week 4 out of 6 of the LBB!)

Saturday: Arms and AMRAP (that means As Many Rounds As Possible, I had to ask and this kicked my butt)

Sunday: Legs (did this in my neighbor’s basement gym! It was very hot)

Monday: Push/Pull (too many pushups)

Tuesday: Swim 3000 yards

Wednesday: Shoulders & Arms

Thursday: REST

Friday: 6 mile run with some stretching/yoga/aka staring at the ceiling and contemplating life

Food wise I am still trying to stick to my diet plan with the LBB and it is FREAKIN HARD. I hate dieting and avoiding my carbs. I hate not having a glass of wine after a long day at work and pumping and baby watching. One thing that has been super handy has been making protein smoothies in the AM. It is an easy breakfast to drink on the way to work and since I usually workout at 5AM, it is a great post-workout snack. I’ve been buying this ‘smoothie starter’ green kit and it has been tasty.

I did get all Betty Crocker on Sunday and make this Chicken Minestrone soup and it was amazing. I made a double batch and added a can of corn and a can of kidney beans for some extra farts, I mean fiber, I mean protein. πŸ™‚

Hi friends! Last weekend the hubs and I took a weekend trip to New Hampshire to visit my cousin and her boyfriend. I had big dreams of trying to ski (with my brace of course) but my knee has been a little wonky so we stuck to some safer activities like snowshoeing, walking, and ice castles. We had a ton of fun and our hosts fed us some delicious home cooked meals! We almost didn’t make it on our trip because our dog, Banks, decided to go rogue the previous weekend eating a bunch of things around the house and needed an emergency blockage removal surgery last Wednesday. Thankfully our pet sitter is a vet tech and she was able to give him a lot of extra love and administer his drugs like a champ. I am happy to report Banks is doing great now and eager for his cone of shame to be removed πŸ˜‚ Now for workouts this week:

Saturday: Snowshoeing

Sunday: Walk

Monday: Legs

Tuesday: Chest + Cardio

Wednesday: Back + Core

Thursday: Walk/rest

Friday: Upper body mishmash

I’ve been acutely aware of the fact that my 30th bday is creeping up and decided to really dial in my nutrition right now. The game plan is to roll into my 30s feeling bomb.com as a lean mean machine 😘 I’ll keep you all posted with sporadic pictures (maybe)!
