My trainer changed my weight schedule completely from 2 days of upper and 2 days of lower body weight workouts a week, to 5 days consisting of lower body, shoulder/tri, back/bi, lower body, and full upper body supersets. Still doing the same 3 days of cardio session. My weight sessions before would take about an hour to complete each time. But now each session is shorter, and I can finish in about 30-45 min. I love that, because that means I can either do my cardio right after and not feel like I've been at the gym all night, or I can just get on with my evening/day if it's not a cardio day. I've definitely been feeling more soreness in places I haven't felt before from my upper body workouts.
I actually started this week's workouts last Sunday, and ended yesterday. But I think I'm going to start my weeks on Mondays from now on, so I took today off and will start the new week tomorrow.
What I did: Shoulder/tri, and then 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill.
What I wore: Alo Sport striped tank in granite, with Lululemon Free To Be bra under in faded zap. And wore the Beyond Yoga Gathered Leggings in dusk for the first time, with Brooks Pure Drift shoes. Dang... I didn't remember the Alo tank being that see-through, but it was the only tank I brought to the gym lol. Oh well, could be worse. I was also worried that the Beyond Yoga leggings would show sweat really badly in this color, since these cardio sessions always make me so sweaty! But they were actually completely fine. They were damp, but you could barely tell. That's another plus for these besides the fact that I found them super soft and great for weights. Wouldn't wear them for lower body weights (not enough compression), but definitely good for upper body.
What I did: My back/bi weights workout, followed by the dreaded 30 minutes on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Janet mesh tank, with Lululemon Dhanurasana crop in white denim, and Nike Frees. It's been so hot here lately, and this outfit reminded me of beach colors... like the white sand and blue/turquoise water kind of beach! Hmmm... I need an island vacation soon!
On the same day for work, I wore my new sweater! The Express studded bateau neck ruched sleeve sweater in black that I just received, and the Express studio stretch welt pocket pencil skirt in fire cracker. Aldo Leanora pumps. I love the color of this skirt, but damn it's getting too big for me in the waist/hips. I am having similar issues with lots of other bottoms in my closet. Maybe I'm finally losing my love handles lol.
Wednesday 7/3 - Rest day
What I did: Lower body weights.
What I wore: American flag colors, of course! Hehe... I wore my Lululemon currant cool racerback, with white Free To Be bra under. And Splits59 Ginger crop in marianna blue. Of course, my red/white Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes for a perfect match! This was fun to wear, especially when everyone else at the gym was wearing black!
|The white on the back of the shoe is perfect for this purpose!!|
Oh yeah, Lululemon white swiftly LS as to and from to tie it all in. =)
And on Wednesday and Friday, we observed casual dress at work. It doesn't happen very often. I took full advantage of it by wearing my Lorna Jane Sophia LS black top over Lululemon cool racerback in electric orange. My new Express Stella brushed sateen ankle leggings in camo, and Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers! Any day to show up to work in workout clothes and comfy leggings is a good day.
Friday 7/5 - I was supposed to do my full upper body supersets, but I was feeling lazy and decided to push it to Saturday instead, and took Friday off as another rest day.
What I did: So I did my full upper supersets, which only took about 30 minutes. Afterwards I did 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill to complete my 3 cardio sessions for the week.
What I wore: Hadn't worn this one in a long time - Lululemon Push Ur Limits tank in passion/wee stripe, with Splits59 Ginger crop in black, and Brooks shoes.
I wore my Lululemon power purple swiflty 1/2 zip as to and from:
Sunday 7/7 - So I took today off to rest, making it the 3rd rest day of the week! But ready to go work hard tomorrow. I didn't sit around and do nothing today though. I walked around the mall for a couple hours (cardio-esque)! And I also hit some golf balls on the driving range for the first time in forever. It was super hot out today, but I did decent considering how long of a break I've taken. Gonna have to start doing this more often, and tennis too!
