Weekend Review

26 Mar

If you are just catching up on weekend posts here is what you missed:

Our weekend was both busy and relaxing which was nice.  On Saturday night, we went to some friends house for dinner and the baby did great.  She is still learning how to take a bottle (she drank another one ounce from a bottle yesterday, yay) so it is hard bringing her places for long period of time since I know she’ll need to eat, not to mention she loves cluster feeding all evening and also gets pretty fussy come 6:30pm.  Taking all that into consideration we arrived at our friends place around 4pm.  They grilled us steaks and we just hung out for the rest of the night.  We didn’t stay long, at around 8pm, Cameryn wasn’t a happy camper so we left.  Half the time we were there I was feeding her in a separate room (since I’m not comfortable breastfeeding Cameryn in front of people) and it got to the point the only way she would stop crying was if I fed her.  We decided to head home so both Cameryn and I could be more at ease with her feedings and try to get her to bed.

On Sunday, I got a lot of chores done around the house and we watched the two basketball games.  I’m so thrilled that Kansas won!  Go Jayhawks, final four baby!!!!!!  



We also worked out all weekend long. 

On Saturday, I did 20 minutes of intervals (30 seconds at 9.0 and 1 minute at 3.8-4.0 walking) and I lifted my pecs and triceps

On Sunday, I did 20 minutes of intervals (1 minute running mostly at 8.0 and 1 minute walking 4.0) followed by legs and very light shoulders.  Since I did weight three days in a row, my upper body muscles we so tired, I could hardly lift light weights over my head!  So, instead of just skipping shoulders, I just used light weights and did about 20 reps of a few exercises.

So, all said and done I was able to workout six days last week!  Love it!  Now this week if I could keep that up and incorporate some yoga in as well, I would be feeling really great!

Here is my plan for this week’s workouts:

  • Monday-  45 minutes cardio
  • Tuesday- 45 minutes cardio
  • Wednesday- 45 minutes cardio
  • Thursday- rest day
  • Friday- 20 minutes intervals + back and biceps
  • Saturday-  20 minutes intervals + chest and triceps
  • Sunday- 20 minutes intervals + legs and shoulders

I might swap days so I’m not doing cardio three days in a row and then weights three days in a row, but I would love to get in another six workouts this week.  My weight finally dropped after being the same since 10 days post partum.  I’m super happy and excited to keep seeing the numbers drop, so I’m ready to work hard!  Smile



Our eating was healthy all weekend long and consisted of breakfast egg sandwiches, homemade grapefruit orange and orange juice, lots of greens- spinach, spring mix and asparagus and Clif Mojo bars.  We tried the Trader Joe’s mushroom ravioli last night and it was pretty tasty.  I sautéed up a bunch of spinach, red bell pepper and chicken sausage to go with it and it turned into a tasty little meal.  I didn’t do a great job taking pictures but I did take a few of my breakfast!



I’m not sure what this week’s meal plan is going to look like.  I want to try and use up some of the food we already have on hand while still eating super healthy, so we’ll see…



That’s it from me today, I’m off to play with this little girl, meal plan and sneak in 45 minutes of cardio this afternoon when Keith gets home. 


Tomorrow I plan on posting about my interview with celebrity personal trainer Jackie Warner!


  • How many days on average do you like working out each week?  I usually like 5 days a week.  I think that is attainable and also gives me two much needed rest days.
  • What was the best part of your weekend?
  • Have you been watching any of the NCAA basketball tournament?

    Way to knock out all your workouts! Hitting all 6 is awesome. I typically workout 5-6 times a week, and lately since I keep getting more and more pregnant 🙂 a workout or two have switched to more walking. Still loving every minute I get to workout!

      When your pregnant I think that as long as you keep moving it is a great workout! I remember walking the dog with my husband and I felt like I was holding them up when we would be walking up a hill! I would be out of breath!

    Yeah for seeing scale progress! I like to work out 6x/week, (and I shoot for that), but realistically make it happen 5x/week. There’s always one day a week that something comes up, so having that extra day planned gives me a buffer. 🙂

    Adorable! Glad the scale is moving (in the right direction). You work your butt off (literally) so you certainly deserve it!
