For those who like reading my blog for my daily eats and workout posts, I apologize that I haven’t been doing a good job keeping up!  I’m determined to post them so starting now I’m going to try to take 15 minutes each day to do so!

WORKOUT

So far this week I’ve got in two workouts.

  • Monday- Cardio and core
  • Tuesday- Rest (dog walk)
  • Wednesday- Cardio and core

Here is what the rest of my workouts look like for the week.

  • Thursday- Intervals and strength (legs, triceps and chest)
  • Friday- Plyometric workout
  • Saturday- Intervals and strength (back, biceps and shoulders)
  • Sunday- Rest day (I’m taking my first Mother’s off to spend snuggling my baby all day long! Smile  )

So there it is!  I know I’ve gotten some emails wanting me to keep up on my eats and workout posts and I have no problem doing it!  Smile

 

See you all later this evening with a weekly update on the baby!  I can’t believe she is already 16 weeks!  Tomorrow’s post is going to be the workout of the week, so make sure you stop back to check out a fun upper body circuit workout I have in store for you guys!

 

Question:  What core exercise are you loving at the moment?

      The salad is really good! I especially love salads with shrimp as the weather continues to get warmers! They taste so light and refreshing!

      I still have a little ways to go… My weight is below where it was when I got pregnant but I just don’t feel as toned and tight as my body used to be. I’m having fun working out though as it is getting me closer to my goal! 🙂
