Week in Workouts: 2/22 – 3/1

Happy Monday! Sorry I fell off the face of the world for a few days but it’s for a really good reason – we FINALLY moved!

We closed on our house on Thursday and moved on Saturday. I could not be happier! As for this weekend, we spent all day Saturday packing and all Sunday unpacking. There’s definitely a lot left to do, but it feels so good to be in our own place. Since we don’t have WiFi hooked up, I wasn’t able to post my week in workouts yesterday so I’m a day late here.

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – 40 minutes on the arc trainer + quick arms circuit. It consisted of bicep curls, shoulder presses, bent-over rows and tricep kickbacks. I did 3 rounds in about 15 minutes using 12.5 dumbbells for the bicep curls and tricep kickbacks, 15 pound dumbbells

Wednesday – 25 minutes on the arc trainer, 15 minutes on the bike + stretching

Thursday – 25 minutes HIIT on the treadmill + an abs circuit I’ll be sharing this week

Friday – 30 minutes on the arc trainer + this arms circuit. I increased my weights for the bicep curls and tricep kickbacks from 12.5 lbs each to 15 lbs and my arms were SO sore.

Saturday – 30 minute HIIT/incline treadmill run + abs + MOVING

Sunday – Rest

I am so sore from moving that it isn’t even funny. Between skiing last week and moving this weekend, my body has been sore more often than not. I’m one of those people who actually loves the feeling of being sore but it really has me thinking about whether I need to change my workouts up more often because I haven’t been this sore from a workout in a few months. I really like the way that Ashley talks about her weekly workouts, so I’m going to do the same!

What was good about my week of workouts?

I only got in one longer cardio session but had two HIIT sessions that were awesome. I used to be a cardio queen and would spend 45-60 minutes on the treadmill or eliptical daily, but those days are long gone. I love the benefits of HIIT and with my crazy busy schedule lately, they’ve been great!

What could have been better about my week of workouts?

This was the first time in a few months where I wasn’t able to work any yoga into my workouts. I’m planning on going a few times this week and definitely need to. I’m so sore and need to stretch and sweat it out in a hot room. I feel so much better when I mix up my workouts, and I really missed yoga this week. I also should have recognized that lifting the day before moving wasn’t a good idea. I wish I had planned that better because I think that’s part of the reason why I’m so sore.

What was your week of workouts like? Are you one of those people who loves being sore like I do? ;)
