Oh yeah, in other news, I got a new phone finally! I got a white iPhone 6! I'm so much happier now. My old iPhone 5 was one of the ones that had a battery recall (I pre-ordered it when it first came out and got the first batch). But because I have a tiny, almost imperceptible dent on one of the front corners, Apple wouldn't replace the battery for me. They said if they took out the face, that little dent would prevent them from putting it back exactly where it should go and then my touch screen would be all messed up. So annoying! I lived with that shitty battery for so long, partially because I was afraid to be one of the first people to get the iphone 6 and have to deal with an equally annoying issue later down the road. My battery life on my old phone was so bad that I literally had to charge my phone 4-5 times a day. I'd get up in the morning with 100% battery. A couple hours later, I'd be at work with 15% battery left. That is, if I was lucky. Sometimes it would die at 50% lol. My new phone, on the other hand, hasn't been charged in 2 days and it's still going! I'm so happy that I don't have to take my charger everywhere with me anymore. It is truly life-changing.
So this week, I completed week 3 of my month 3 workouts from Get Glutes. I have one more week left, but I got a preview of month 4 workouts - they seem to be kicked up a notch! So I guess I'll have that to look forward to later.
Monday 1/12 - Rest
What I did: Strength 1 workout.
What I wore: Lululemon Water Bound singlet in bleached coral and Lululemon Wunder Under crop in animal swirl - I really loved these! Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in hyper cobalt/bright mango.
Splits59 Vail Cutout pullover in marianna blue as to and from:
Wednesday 1/14 - Slept in and skipped the gym. I went to bed too late. This is something I'm trying to get better at. I need more sleep! I really only sleep like 6 hours a night, and I'd like it to be at least 7. I think it's true that rest is just as important as the workout. So I'm trying to "listen to my body". Though I'm not sure yet how I can distinguish between really needing rest, or just being lazy. I nearly always feel like sleeping in so if I really listened to that, I'd never make it to the gym. =P
What I did: I did strength #2.
What I wore: Lole Spiral tank with Lululemon free to be bra in white under it. Lululemon wunder under crop in diamond jacquard flaming tomato, and Nike Free 3.0s.
Lululemon white swiftly LS as to/from:
What I did: Conditioning work for about 40 minutes. Then I did 20 minutes interval on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lululemon No Limit tank in flash with Lululemon Inspire crop in savasana camo fatigue green. Same Nike Free 3.0s as the day before.
First day taking pics with the new phone! It's supposed to have a better camera. I think the details do show up better.
Armani Exchange faux fur jacket as to/from:
What I did: 3rd Strength session, plus 15 minutes on the gauntlet afterwards.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Kayla tank with Lorna Jane Lola bra in sparkle gray under. Beyond Yoga Hyper Stripe long legging and HKNB 420 sneakers.
Ever since I tried these sneakers out last week for a workout, I actually liked them so I'll be adding them to the rotation! I would not wear them to run or jump around too much, but for weights and the gauntlet, they are actually pretty good!
Alo Yoga Cinder LS in spectrum as to and from:
Since I completed all my workouts and extra cardio this week, I decided to take today off and not push it too hard. I guess I'm trying to workout less when everyone else is trying to workout more lol.
Now off to do my homework! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm so happy that tomorrow is the MLK holiday so this is a 3 day weekend for me!
