Working Out: Week 16

Happy Monday, y’all! It was a crazy week between the holiday celebrations and trying to get everything set for Smalls to start public school (long story), but I managed to wrangle my eating and get back on track with workouts.

Go me! But seriously, I finally finished reading Trim Healthy Mama cover to cover, and I have to say that I’m loving their logic. So, although I’ve been predominantly Paleo for the past year, I’m going to try a different approach to see if my thyroid and adrenals can heal. It’s worth a shot, right?

I’m really, really excited for the new year, which is going to be amazing. I’m going to ramp up helping people learn how to oil up, get healthy, and stay on track. I can’t wait to help you, too!

working out week 16


Workout: Ugifit medicine ball workout, using my 8-pound Ugi:

  • 20 deadlifts
  • 20 bent over rows
  • 20 squats
  • 20 sumo squats
  • 20 shoulder press
  • 20 bicep curls
  • 20 tricep extensions
  • 20 overhead pulls
  • 20 calf raises
  • 20 v-ups
  • 20 clamshells

I realize that this is the third week in a row that I’ve done the same workout on Monday-but y’all, I am LOVING it. The kiddos each grab a “ball” of their own and “play” along as I get this done. It takes about 20 minutes, and my whole body is definitely feeling it! Maybe next week I’ll add in some ankle weights….

Workout: The Baby played personal trainer. Seriously! He thinks it’s hysterical to do squats, sit ups, and “yoga” poses and watch Smalls and I imitate him. We did this for about an hour, and I was a hot, sweaty mess afterwards, but the giggles were so, so worth it!
