This week was a bit different for me. I had to be at work around 6 am, so I couldn't make it to the gym beforehand since my gym only opens at 5. I usually get to the gym before 5:15 am and I can barely make it out of there by 7 am (that's when I'm supposed to be at work lol). I hadn't been to the gym after work in the longest time, and I was reminded of why I hated it! There are some real annoying guys there that I hadn't seen and had totally forgotten about for months. Like dude #1 is super awkward and tries to talk to me every time he sees me... but just stands there in silence after "hi". I feel kind of bad for him, but omg go away if you have nothing to say lol! Dude #2 is kind of similar but way worse... he does nothing but walking in front of wherever I am while trying to make eye contact, and sometimes he even steals my bench with my sweaty towel on it when I happen to walk away for a minute. Seriously, he's gross. Dude #3 wants to workout with me... when he is not there with his girlfriend. He stalks me on Instagram too. Then there are random other ones who like to tell me what's going on in their lives even though I don't even know them, or asking me things about my life that I have no interest in sharing. Of course, there are also lots of co-workers that go to the same gym after work, who I really would rather not see or be seen by. So, one week of going to the gym after work has completely reminded me of why it's worth it to get up at 4 am for the gym. The people who are always there in mornings are a lot less... sociable (or socially-challenged?).
Aside from the hiccup in my schedule, my workouts this week were also quite different from normal. I had bought some pilates classes which are expiring soon, so I took 2 pilates classes this week. I also had a training session with one of my gym trainers who I am thinking of training with a couple times a month. I like his style of high intensity circuit work. It's so different to have someone else there pushing you as well!
Oh yeah, also no "to and from"s this week since I went to the gym after work - it's been almost 90 degrees everyday here. The only time that I sort of need a "to and from" piece is when I leave the house at 4:30 am.
What I did: Lower body weights, followed by 30 minutes of cardio intervals on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lululemon 105 F Singlet in bruised berry with Lorna Jane Portia bra in hyper lime under. Athleta Chaturanga capri in purple plaid, and Nike Free Bionics in purple/volt.
This was super matchy! The LJ bra and Nike shoe laces are identical in color...
What I did: Pilates class - it was such a tough one too! Worked on my glutes a lot.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Feline tank in viola (I think this is my favorite tank I've bought in a long time) with Lorna Jane Somersault bra under it. Lululemon Wunder Groove crops and I wore my printed Nike Free 3.0s to class.
What I did: Glute/Back/Bi workout.
What I wore: Under Armour Achieve tank with Lorna Jane Quick Step bra under. Lululemon Wunder Under crops in pretty palm cadet blue and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in fusion pink/ atomic mango. I love these shoes with this tank!
Straps of the bra is the same shade as the tank too. =)
Thursday 8/7 - Rest
What I did: Training session with the trainer. We did 4 sets of high intensity circuit work. Then I threw in another 30 minutes of cardio afterwards.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Team LJ tank with Lorna Jane Sunrise bra in pale flouro orange under. Lululemon Ebb & Flow crop in deep indigo, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in hyper cobalt/bright mango.
Saturday 8/9 - Rest day, had to pick up mom in the morning.
What I did: Pilates class again.
What I wore: Lululemon Hot Class tank in bold blue with Ivivva Rhythmic Crop in zing pink light/power purple/jet set blue.
Wow these posts are so short when I don't have any to and from outfits! And work outfits for that matter too. But anyway... I hope you all had a great weekend, and a great week to come!
