So anyway, speaking of working out, I had a pretty great week! I've had more than a week now of eating about 2000 calories a day, which includes 220g of carbs a day. I was kind of wary about that in the beginning, but I actually feel great! I think I really need that for the amount of training I do, and I'm beginning to see different little muscles here and there that I swear did not exist before! My trainer changed up some of my workouts and whenever that happens, I always get so sore! I guess it just goes to show how your body can adapt to exercises that you perform often, and it's good to change things up to keep challenging yourself.
Monday 6/23 - Rest day but I wore my new W118 by Walter Baker Wanda jacket to work! H&M printed tank under it, and black Express wide waistband editor pant. Coach Nala patent pumps.
What I did: Lower body weights day. My friend video taped me doing some of the exercises! I thought I'd share here... hehe. These are 2 lower body exercises that I do a lot - squats (sumo squats in this case) and hip thrusts (I do this like 3 days a week).
What I wore: Lorna Jane Feline tank with Lorna Jane Somersault bra under, the new Splits59 Nova Viper capri (love!!!) and printed Nike Free 3.0s. I like that you can see the sheen of the python print in the video!
What I did: Shoulder/tri workout, then I did a treadmill/plyo workout. i.e. treadmill for 2 min, then jumping lunges, squats, etc. back and forth for about 25 min. Breaks it up a little from my normal step mill cardio.
What I wore: Lululemon Waterbound Singlet with Lululemon Centered Energy bra in flash under it. Splits59 Nova Trailblazer in red/mint, and Nike Free 3.0 in gray/crimson.
Lululemon Turn Around LS as to and from:
What I did: Glute/back/bi workout, then 30 minutes of gauntlet machine. It was such a long workout!
What I wore: Lorna Jane Macy tank with Lorna Jane Sunrise bra under. Lululemon Empower crop in coal/passion, and Nike Free 5.0 in violet.
Alo Sport gray marled cowlneck top as to and from:
What I did: Lower body workout again!
What I wore: Lorna Jane Team LJ tank with Lorna Jane Duo bra in yves blue under. Lululemon Wunder Under crop in pretty palm cadet blue, and printed Nike Free 3.0s.
I thought these crops might slide down because of the lower rise, and I did have to pull them up a couple times. But not bad at all. I was also pretty sweaty, because lower body workouts do that to me. So as soon as I start sweating, they just stay put.
Splits59 Vail Cutout pullover in marianna blue as to and from:
Wore the same color scheme to work that day! This old blue Express cowlneck sweater and new Catherine Malandrino Collet skirt with Sam Edelman Novato slingbacks.
What I did: Last workout of the week which was upper body supersets, then 30 minutes on the gauntlet to finish it off.
What I wore: Don't laugh - Lululemon cool racerback in wee are from space white barely pink, with Ivivva Spacedye Rhythmic crop in pow pink light/flash light/creamsicle pop. New Balance Minimus Road shoes.
At first I thought maybe it was too much stripes on top and bottom! But I think it's actually not too bad since the top is so subtle! Hehe.
I got this long sleeve cropped mesh top from Express a while ago - it's only $9! Comes in 4 colors. Not bad at all. It was a warm day so I wore it to and from the gym.
Here are some close ups of the top - I got it in size S:
Alright, that's the end of this week! Tomorrow it all starts again! I'm going to have to be at work by 6ish all week so my workouts will be cut way short. At least it's a short week since Friday is 4th of July! I better get to bed now, hope you all had a great weekend!
