Weekly Workout Recap #4: Thinner, Leaner, Stronger

This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

Okay so I’ve already switched up my workouts. For the last 3 weeks I’ve been following a routine inspired by Thinner, Leaner, Stronger. I just have to sub a few exercises since I don’t have cables or a leg press machine but it’s all good. StrongLifts 5×5 is a solid workout program too but it’s just a little too repetitive for me. It’s definitely a great choice if quick strength gains are what you’re after. But now I’m following Thinner, {Read More}

It’s been a tough week in our household. The two year anniversary of my stepdad’s passing was Friday and my husband’s grandmother passed away the night before (after getting text messages daily of her health declining) and we celebrated her life this past Monday. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions and quite the whirlwind for the past week. Grandma would’ve turned 95 next month so she definitely lived a long, healthy life but you’re still never ready for loved ones to {Read More}

I hope you had a great weekend! My youngest and I share birthdays and we celebrated with family on Saturday by finally seeing Beauty and the Beast. We all loved it. It’s so good!

I’m really liking it so far and was able to up the weights on quite a few moves during the second week. {Read More}

I kind of miss blogging my workouts. A lot. I’ve been going back and forth whether to start including them again or not and I’ve decided that it might be a good idea so I plan on doing home workout weekly recaps every Monday. Posting my workouts holds me accountable and it’s proof I’m taking action myself and not just writing about it. All of my workouts are done either in my living room if I’m following a Beachbody program {Read More}

One of my August goals was to complete the first four weeks of the Charlie Mike workout (created by trainer Ashley Horner).

I won’t bore you with the details of every single workout all the time but here’s what day 1 looked like: First up: Max bench press – 85#. I haven’t {Read More}

When I first heard that a program called Country Heat was coming to Beachbody, I wasn’t super thrilled. Kinda more of the opposite. I like some country music but I just wasn’t sure about what to think of a line dancing workout. When I heard that Autumn Calabrese was the trainer for the program, I put a little more trust into it because clearly that lady knows what she’s doing! If you know anything about 21 Day Fix or 21 {Read More}

Good morning, good morning, good morning! Happy two-more-days-till-Friday day!

That tells me there are people out there interested in these workouts! For this reason I definitely wanted to share the super ultra challenging workout I did yesterday. It was a Grit workout. Whomever decided on the name Grit is genius because wow. I learned I don’t have much, {Read More}
