Workout Wednesday



HUMP DAYYYYYY! Congratulations people, you made it through half of the week! #Amen. I'm trying something new this week...Workout Wednesday. I picture this being a way for me to a) share some workouts that I've been doing, b) give you a wellness tip that I've been trying and c) keep me accountable to my readers :).

A quick disclaimer though, I am by no means a personal trainer, nutritionist, workout instructor, etc. These are workouts and tips I've cultivated from years of working out and striving to be healthy.

So here's my workout for you this week:


So to break it down for you...I usually start any workout with 2 minutes on the treadmill. I usually do 6.5-7 but chose the speed that's most comfortable to you. Then I have 3 circuits, which you repeat 3 times before moving on to the next one. In between the circuits I do what I call 20/10, which is a 20 second sprint followed by 10 seconds of rest for about 2 minutes. So usually what I do is about 8 for 20 seconds then jump on to the sideboards for the 10 second rest. It's a great cardio bursts between sets. If you have particular questions about certain exercises please comment below and I'd be happy to explain it!

My wellness tip for this week is going to be a recipe that I made recently. I made Monique's Healthy Turkey Chili on Sunday and it was delicious! I made some modifications so that I could cook it in the crockpot. I browned the turkey and threw everything in on low for 7 hours. I also threw in some jalapenos because I'm obsessed with them! It is such a satisfying meal for only 336 calories!



Well there ya have it, my first Workout Wednesday! What do y'all think? Any comments, questions, concerns, feedback? I'd love to hear what y'all think. I hope you have a great day and see you back here Friday!
