Weekly Work Outs + Some Food!

Good Morning Internet Friends, Megan here to kick the post off. It’s been a busy week of work, school, and gymming. On Saturday I spent the afternoon with my girlfriend doing hot yoga and taking her sweet puppy on a walk through the woods. This dog has the most insanely expressive eyes and permanent cat eye make up : ) Then on Sunday my husband came to the gym with me! He normally works out during work hours so the frequency in which we work out together is only a handful of times a year.

I did a bit of cooking this week and my favorite meal by far ended up being a vegetarian dinner I whipped up last night. The ingredients are as follows: 1 can of black beans, 1 can of full fat coconut milk, 1/2 cup lentils, bunch of kale, sriracha and/or chili garlic paste, and curry powder! It turned out amazing and was super filling. You may notice some greens that are not kale, that is just left over broccoli slaw that I had in the fridge. So if you have extra veggies that you need to use up, this pot is a great place to put them.

Work outs this week have been pretty enjoyable. I have been quite sore. Legs on Sunday was a doozie and the Wednesday back and rower work out basically destroyed my trunk. I have been sneaking abs in to all of my work outs this week and boy can I feel it.

I am currently working with a nutrition coach to help me hit some body composition goals before my 30th in May. Working with Alex has been great accountability to plan out my food a bit more and be conscious to not snack when I get home. She has me at the highest macros/calories a coach has ever set me at and I am losing fat. It is pretty cool! I am actually finding that come dinner time it is hit or miss if I eat my entire portion. The goal is to of course hit the set macros and I average out through out the week pretty spot on to what she has me set at. Any who, I will update ya’ll on my progress as the countdown to my birthing dwindles. Only 87 days, but whose counting.

Work Outs:
Saturday: 90 min hot bikram
Sunday: legs
Monday: 60 min easy yoga
Tuesday: rest/ 60 min walk w/ hubs and dog
Wednesday: back/core/abs + 15 min rower sprints
Thursday: legs + 20 min incline walking
Friday: chest/shoulder/core

Have a great weekend!!!
Meg


 

This week is my LAST WEEK of the bootcamp and I am feeling the results. I was able to do 2 chin-ups in a row which is a major victory post-baby. Getting back my strength finally! These were my workouts this week:

Work Outs:
Saturday: 7 mile run in icy/snowy conditions
Sunday: Backs & Triceps
Monday: Legs
Tuesday: Body Weight HIIT + 3 mile progressive run
Wednesday: Chest, Biceps, Shoulders
Thursday: rest day… but I started teaching swim lessons this evening at my gym so that is kind of like a mini-workout
Friday: Legs and if I have time, a 1/2 mile swim to stretch out

Food is pretty much the same as it has been… so unworthy that I did not take any pictures. I did discover that making a protein smoothie with grapes and kale was NOT a good choice. Really gross so don’t ever mix those together.

This weekend I am looking forward to book club with my ladies. We read Born a Crime by Trevor Noah… amazing. Listen to the audio if you can but I recommend this to anyone!

xoxo Lillian
