Weekly Workouts 6/6-6/11

I sang in the gym yesterday, yep I’m that person. I was running on the treadmill, listening to my summer anthem “Can’t Stop the Feeling”, when I caught the man next to me staring at me – I didn’t even realize I was singing, oops… JT got the best of me (like he always does)! It was a great week in the gym. I went up in weights this week (squats, deadlifts, rdls, etc.), got in 2 workouts on Wednesday, and I’m nearing my goal of 2 miles in under 12 minutes. I’m hoping by the end of the summer, before my half marathons, that I beat that goal. Fingers crossed!

From my  blog post last week, about hitting the weight-loss plateau, I decided to try a different work out. Instead of substituting my morning routine I decided to join a friend at our local Hot Yoga spot for some much needed bursts of cardio and stretching. If you’ve never tried Hot Yoga, holy hell! The class my friend and I went to was Hot Vinyasa, and it kicked our butts. The “flow” consisted of plenty of planks, pretzel twists and one leg balances – and oh did I mention it was hot?! I totally forgot to take off my makeup before too, so when I was walking out I literally looked like a drenched raccoon that had been walking across the Sahara Desert. I seriously think I scared a small child on the sidewalk…

Anyway I hope you all enjoy the weekend, and get to enjoy something you love to do! I will be gardening and cooking this weekend, two of my favorite things :).
