Good afternoon peeps! Hope your Tuesday is going well! I’ve been working away. I actually can’t believe it’s only Tuesday. I feel like I’ve done at least 4 days worth of work!
This weekend was quite the whirlwind. I was in AZ hanging out with my family for my brother’s birthday. Between hardly sleeping, cramming a lot of family time and activities in, and taking a stupid-early flight back home Monday morning and heading straight to work, I’m not even sure how I’m still functioning! I did get a good night of sleep last night (thankfully), but I definitely had my patience tested.
Pics from the Weekend
We stayed at a hotel on Saturday night and of course I had to wake up Charlie early Sunday morning for a workout. We headed down to the hotel gym and were surprised to see….well…basically nothing. They had a few treadmills and ellipticals, a few medicine balls, and some dumbbells. Most people would have walked in there and thought “guess I’ll be doing cardio”, but unfortunately for Charlie, I took it as a chance to get creative! I compiled a video of the exercises we did (will post this sometime this week) and I’m posting it here as well so you can try it right away. We did this circuit style and went through 5 rounds. It was quick and we both felt like we got a good workout out of it!
Questions of the Day:
1. What do you do when the hotel gym sucks?
2. Do you prefer early morning/red eyes or regular daytime flights?
First of all, THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH for the feedback on my post on How I Quit Cardio.
I’ve had several people even stop me on the streets, at the gym, and via Facebook, to tell me how much they enjoyed it. I’ll definitely be writing more posts like that in the future. Shoot me a line if there are any heavy topics you’d like me to write about. I’ve been down A LOT of roads in this health and fitness world…. FitLizzio (at) gmail (dot) com
I’m getting pretty good at this disappearing act, aren’t i? I apologize! I’m working my tail off and haven’t been finished with work until midnight on most nights. I just can’t bring myself to write after a 12-15 hour day of work. This won’t always be the case, but it is for now, so I’m going to blog when I can. I’ll try to at least get 1-2 posts per week up, but I’d rather give you guys quality posts and not just throw together a kamikaze post just to get something up.
First of all, I got to hang with this little dude last weekend. He is the coolest baby in the world. He loves to laugh, make jokes, and just be awesome. Love my nephew so much!!
It was so great spending time with my family in AZ last weekend. I can’t wait until I get to go back in a few weeks! I miss them all.
Last week’s workouts:
Monday: 20 Minutes on the Stairmill – High Intensity + Bouldering – Medium Intensity
Tuesday: Full Body Workout – Medium Intensity
Thursday: Legs – High Intensity
Friday: Taught Conditioning (more on that below) + Upper Body – Medium Intensity
Saturday: Bouldering – Medium Intensity
Sunday: Legs/Shoulders/Abs – High Intensity
A pretty decent week of workouts! I was definitely pretty sore by Saturday, so I took it easy and just did some bouldering at the rock climbing gym. This was my first week back in 3 weeks, and I definitely noticed. I’m going to try to get back to my 2-3 day/week schedule again.
So I mentioned above that I taught conditioning on Friday. Long story short, an instructor didn’t show up to a class, so I jumped in and taught the conditioning portion of it…….AND IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! I have never taught group exercise (just personal training) and it was a total blast. I’m definitely going to see if I can sub in every now and then. I think the people in class love/hated me, too. I’m an evil instructor, but you’ll thank me later! 😉
Here’s my plan for the coming week:
My friend and I are going to be embarking on a little challenge beginning tomorrow. I’ll be posting the details, our measurements, weight, and progress photos. We both feel like we want to work a bit harder when it comes to our diets, so we’re going in this together.
Stay tuned for more info……you’re welcome to join us!
That’s all I’ve got for now, but I’ll be back on Tuesday with the details of our little challenge.
