It’s WORK IT OUT WEDNESDAY

Get workin’ hard this hump day! Nothing like a good sweat session to lift your spirits and make the day go by a little faster.

I put together a little workout and gave it a try. As usual, I split up my cardio because I get soooo bored inside the gym on the machines. I’m definitely a more outdoorsy cardio girl. Do the cardio of your choice for 20 minutes in the beginning and 20 minutes to finish up the session.

Complete each move for the recommended number of reps with 5-10 pounds. Once completed, do another round!

Work it out Wednesday

Sooo I’ve began phase 1 of the Jamie Eason program. Instead I’ve put a bit of my own twist on it because I’m already an active person with overall good healthy habits.

I’m going by my own diet program, less so a diet and more so just continuing to make the healthy food choices I do everyday – the foods that I know make me feel good and make my body feel good and fueled.

In terms of the exercise regime, I gotta admit I’ve been a major cardio girl, just like many others! Phase 1 of this program calls for no cardio AT ALL and that’s not okay with me! I need my running and intense sweat sessions that come from great cardio. It keeps me sane, happy and energized. So I decided that I would do her strength training days while adding in the cardio that I’d like each day (which ranges about 4-6 miles daily along with a Long run on weekends).

My goal –> to gain muscle and strength!

So far so good I gotta say! I only am on day 3, but I’m definitely enjoying having everything laid out for me and ready to go in my email. Idiot proof 🙂
