COMMENT OF THE WEEK

You don’t like the Udi’s Gluten-Free crumble cakes that they call bread? :O

– Amen, zach rusk. Gluten-free bread is the best argument against bread consumption.

Happy New Year, everybody! I’m looking forward to digging into 2017 together. And FYI: our annual 21-Day Challenge begins January 9. Look for more info this week!

#MondayMotivation

Happy New Year, friends! Welcome to 2017! Let’s cheers (via kettlebell mug) to the best year yet! đź™‚kettlebell mug

I heard a rumor (from my 2017 Reader Survey) that you guys enjoy my weekly workout recaps because they give you ideas and motivation for your own sweat sessions, so I decided to bring them back. And I figured since today is January 1st and you might have a fitness-related resolution for the new year, I would publish it a day early. There are 3 awesome (i.e. hard!) workouts included, and I hope they’re just what you need for a fit week of workouts. Happy sweating! 🙂

SUNDAY: OFF

MONDAY: CrossFit

Quad Burner CrossFit Workout

Holy cow, this workout killed my quads… and lungs. It was a good one for sure!

TUESDAY: OFF

WEDNESDAY: KFIT

Oh, how I missed KFIT. So glad I was able to join the KFIT crew for this workout. I miss those ladies! FYI: 90-second hill heavy is on a spin bike.

THURDAY: Orangetheory

Guys, I friggin’ love Orangetheory and “dragged” Mal there last week to try it with me. He really liked it, too! My gosh, Orangetheory is such an amazing workout. It involves treadmill intervals (running or walking), rowing, free weights, TRX, BOSU, and more. Love, love, love!

FYI: My favorite workout tank (pictured above – I have it in 3 different colors) is on sale for just $21 right now! I love it because it’s one of those tops that you don’t have to think about. It’s comfy and just stays put!

FRIDAY: OFF

SATURDAY: CrossFit

Partner Workout from Salt Shack CrossFit

My friend Marisa and I teamed up for this workout at Salt Shack and finished in about 22 minutes. It was a great Saturday sweat session!

Question of the Day

What’s your workout schedule look like for next week? 

Here’s my plan:

  • Wednesday: KFIT or CrossFit – depends on the workout (I’m trying to do more endurance workouts)
  • Thursday: At-home workout or run outside – depends on the weather
  • Friday: CrossFit
  • Saturday: CrossFit
