Sunday Funday!

I did better with my workouts this week, and ended up weight lifting 3 times.  I really really like weight lifting.  I haven't really written about this in a while, but I've been doing it seriously since the beginning of this year and I've seen so many changes in my body.  I have definitely added muscle mass and feel so much stronger now.   And I really have seen the results of more calories burned due to these added muscles.  I've been eating kind of crappy lately, and if I was only doing cardio and light weights like I used to before, I'd be packing on the pounds.  However,  nowadays I just bounce right back into shape, it's really quite amazing!  Of course it doesn't mean this will last forever and I should still continue to lift and eat as healthy as I can.  It's just nice to be able to "cheat" more than before.  =)

Monday 10/22
What I did:  My mom was in town so I went to dinner with her.  But I was able to get some weight lifting in beforehand.  I worked on arms and ran five 1-minute sprints.

What I wore:  Lululemon cool racerback in black embossed manifesto print, with flash Centered Energy bra under.  I wore my coal/passion wee stripe Empower Crop and my Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes.


Tuesday 10/23 - Took it off and saw a movie instead.

Wednesday 10/24
What I did:  Weight lifting - leg day, which means hell day.  I hate/love my leg workouts, they are so tough.  I was sore for 2 days after, and I even skipped my usual sprints afterwards since my legs felt like jello.

What I wore:  Lululemon swiftly tank in pink mist, with white Flow Y bra under.  Bordeaux drama wunder under crops (love these so much!), and New Balance Minimus Road shoes.


I wore my beloved Journey Jacket as to/from.



Thursday 10/25
What I did:  Weights again, I worked on back this time and did my sprints afterwards.

What I wore:  Lululemon cool racerback in white, and power purple wunder under crops.



I wore my Diesel Fluvy hoodie as to and from.



Friday 10/26 - Took it off

Saturday 10/27
What I did:  Went to my power yoga class.  It was a very good class, and I felt a lot stiffer since I hadn't gone to yoga for a couple weeks.  It's amazing how much yoga helps...



And today I did not workout again!  Well, maybe I'll go later.  But I went to hit golf balls this morning, did a pretty crappy job, and got over it real fast.  So I went to eat brunch instead.  Now I'm all full and don't feel like moving... haha.  But I'm happy with 4 days of solid workouts this week.  My goal is to go 4-6 times a week.  So at least I hit my minimum!
