Tuesday Workout & Fun Fitness Survey!

Hey Hey!

How’s your day going? Mine started with a half-asleep-but-killer leg workout!

I got to bed a little bit later than planned last night and was a little slow to get going this morning!

My workout started with heavy squats and I think I was yawning in between each set. ๐Ÿ˜€

I ended up doing this workout:

  • Squats: 4 sets of 5 reps (135, 145, 145, 145)
  • DB Walking Lunges: 3 sets of 12 (20 lb DB’s)
  • Medicine Ball Jump Squats: 3 sets of 15 (16 lb med. ball)
  • 45* Hypers: 2 sets of 20 (25 lb plate)
  • Banded Hip Thrusts: 2 sets of 20 (heavy + extra heavy band)<—-these were HARDDDD
  • Leg Extensions: 3 sets of 12-15 (90, 110, 130)
  • Lying Ham Curls: 3 sets of 10-12 (50, 60, 60)
  • Banded Hip Adduction: 2 sets of 30 (heavy band)

My legs are definitely a bit shaky after this and I’m pretty sure I’m walking funny!

fun fitness survey

I saw this blog survey on the interwebs and since I love filling out forms, I just had to do it!

1. What did you eat for breakfast?

A Chocolate chip banana muffin that my mom sent me home with (YUM), some grapes, and a coffee. Normally I do eggs + egg whites and fruit, but I changed it up today!

Photo doesn’t do it justice. SO good!

Not sure. I keep a bottle with me wherever I go and drink throughout the day.

4. How many calories do you eat a day?

Anywhere from 1700 – 2400. I eat what I want, but don’t try to hit a certain number each day. That’s just where it falls.

Fruit, Quest Bars, coffee (that’s a snack, right?!), and nuts.

Legs and Booty!!

11. How often do you eat out?

I grab food from Whole Foods and the Co-Op (like Whole Foods) quite often, but other than that, maybe once per week.

12. Do you eat fast food?

I haven’t had fast food in years unless you count a McDonald’s ice cream cone every now and then ๐Ÿ˜€

My parents, family, and boyfriend. (and Oscar too!)

I work at a gym, so yes.

15. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

Realistically 7ish.

16. Do you have a โ€œcheatโ€ย day?

No. I eat what I want for the most part. Some days I try to eat less junk than others.

17. Do you drink alcohol?

Nope.

18. Do you have a workout buddy?

Sometimes I workout with Charlie or friends, but usually I’m on my own. It’s hard to find the RIGHT workout partner (possibly even harder than finding the right life partner haha….but really.)IMG_8918

19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?

My confidence. I used to be shy. I was unsure of myself when going after things. Now, I feel like I can take on the world! It really is life-changing and hard to describe unless you’ve experienced it.

20. What was the last healthy thing you did?

I worked out this morning! Woohoooo.
