A PSL Workout

It is PSL season after all- let’s have a little workout pun fun! This quick workout will work arms, core and legs.. oh the legs.

Full disclosure, I have totally fallen off the motivational wagon and have slipped on making it to my workouts. I am working on adjusting my focus to the long term effects/goals of a fit lifestyle instead of the quick obtainable ones like fitting back into a fair pair of jeans.

For some reason Lil Miss has wanted to party for a few hours every night around 2:30am. This Mama is tired and has hit snooze on her alarm for far too many days as of late. Gaining that much needed extra hour of sleep means sacrificing a morning workout. This week I’m determined to stop neglecting my daily workouts. So today the weather was perfect for a run during my lunch break and I did just that!

Tell Me: What are some of your larger goals that keep you showing up to the gym day after day?

My run was short; just 1.5 miles. I wanted to add a little something extra especially given how much I have slacked lately. This short workout was a great supplement to my run!

SIS: SPRING INTO SUMMER SHAPE UP WEEK 3

Hi all! It’s been such a busy week. I made some updates to the site and computer coding is not a strong suite of mine- everything took a lot longer than anticipated. And then last minute at the end of the week I got a new MacBook; which required getting all that set up and files transferred. It’s been a week of lots of computer nonsense!

It’s also been a SORE week! I can really tell I’m pushing and challenging myself- I feel like I am seeing changes in my arms! (or imagining?) I’m starting to fit back into some of my regular size pre-pregnancy pants so something must be going right!

The Spring into Summer Shape Up is half way done; can you believe it? With that being said- here is week three’s schedule and workout! If you are just joining us make sure to check out week one and week two!

Monday: Double Duty Arms. The exercises are arm focus but you’re going to work more than just your arms. I’m probably going to grab my 3lb and 5lb dumbbells to complete this workout.

Tuesday: Cardio Interval + abs. C’mon we all love cardio and ab day riiiight? Super simple cardio interval that can be done with any type of cardio your heart desires. The ab exercises I picked this week are pilates inspired.

Wednesday: Scorch your legs with this HIIT type workout.

Thursday: Cardio + abs (from Tuesday) again. I’ve provided a no-equipment cardio routine as I do every Thursday, but feel free to do whatever cardio you want. If that’s going for a run, a spin class or whateves. The important part is to move!

Friday: kick the weekend into high gear with this weighted total body workout. It could get ugly, but just think how extra satisfying a glass of rosé will taste later!

Saturday/Sunday- I encourage you to take these days to rest, do a yoga flow, stretch or even just enjoy a slow walk with the kids. These workouts are tough; it’s important to have rest days!

Alright, I’ve got to get some sleep. Little miss was up all last night and this Mama is beat! Plus my littles and I are treating my Mom to lunch tomorrow and I need to get some rest. Happy Mother’s Day friends!
