Workout Update

My ankle feels so much better! Thank goodness! Now I haven't "tested" it with any tough workouts but I did do a ton of yard work over the weekend that included a lot of bending & squatting & I haven't had any problems. I'm no longer a gimp with a limp so that's awesome!

Friday I took the day off work & I'd planned to do a workout but I woke up feeling like I needed to rest so I didn't do anything. Well, except have the best shrimp poboy EVER for lunch with Dean & make a trip to Sam's, Lowe's, Hobby Lobby & take a nap. I needed my strength for the crawfish boil that night.  That led to only doing the squat challenge below.
I have no idea where this came from. Khloe Kardashian tweeted it awhile back. Today is Day 17 for me. I've switched it up a bit. I did Day 15 yesterday & Monday was a rest day instead of today. Yesterday was the first day that it was REALLY hard.  Today when I get home I'll do a weight workout along with the squats.

Awhile back I received an email from Emily with BEACHBODY. She reached out to me since I've been posting about my health & fitness goals. I'm sure most of you have heard of  P90X. I had of course but I didn't realize this was a BEACHBODY product. It is! Turns out they have a TON of products.

Since this latest injury has delayed my running I've been thinking about taking a break from Yoglates in August. That's when I'm paid through. I really want to run the half marathon & I don't want to work out too much & injure myself again. I'm thinking about doing workouts at home until after the half.  Beachbody has a ton of different things on the website. There's P90X ,
Brazil Butt Lift Masters Series & the one that I'm really interested in is the T25 Workout. It's a series of 25 minute workouts. It won't be released until June but I want to check it out. I love stuff that I can do that doesn't take a ton of time. Although, it does scare me because the guy that created Insanity is the guy behind T25. Note to whoever names these workouts: don't name them things like Insanity! That's totally scared me away!! HA!  Can you pass that along Emily??

So I think I'm supposed to tell you something about how I wasn't compensated for this post & it was all my opinions. I WISH I could figure out a way to be compensated for my posts. It would be awesome to be one of those bloggers that gets to do this for a job.



  1. My butt is sore from just reading this!

  2. Great information. Lucky me I recently found your website by accident (stumbleupon).
    I have book-marked it for later!
