Work Out Routine Love

So I am ready to get on a normal workout routine again!  I really love the Les Mills Pump series so I am going to go back to what I love. 

 

Monday:    Pump Challenge/25 minutes

Tuesday:    30 minute run

Wednesday:    Pump Challenge/25 minutes

Thursday:    20 minute yoga/45 minute run

Friday:    Pump Challenge/25 minutes

Saturday:    20 minute ab routine/45 minute run

Sunday:    rest

 

 

I am such a creature of habit and so Les Mills Pump really does work for me.  In the past, I have been so guilty of just jumping from program to program not really giving my body time to adjust to them.

I think what I like most about Pump is that I feel strong and fit……It’s not something I am doing to be skinny, which I will never be.

 

The other day I went to Whole Foods to pick up a couple of things and found these little jewels…

Running Playlist

Morning!!   Happy Wednesday to you!  Smile     Ahh, that’s one of the disadvantages of holidays that fall on a Monday….  The week gets a bit thrown off.  But, I am totally ok with that.  Yesterday was the third and the day after a holiday, so in the banking world that makes for a super busy day.  It wasn’t too bad though. 

 

I had my run yesterday morning and it felt great to run.  I will be so glad when some of this humidity goes away because running in the afternoon is pretty brutal.  To get me through my runs I have revamped my running songs and thought I would share them with ya…

 

 

  1. Can’t hold Us:  Macklemore
  2. Feel This Moment:  Pitbull
  3. The A Team:   Ed Sherran
  4. My Songs Know What you do in the dark:   Fall Out Boy
  5. Remember The Name:   Fort Minor
  6. Wings:   Little Mix
  7. I Need Your Love:   Calvin Harris (featuring Ellie Goulding)
  8. Wake Me Up:   Avicill

 

Ed Sherran doesn’t seem like your typical running song, but it fits my pace perfectly.  My new favorite songs to run to are: Can’t Hold Us and Wake Me Up,  If you haven’t heard of Avicill, stop what you are doing and YouTube this song! (scroll down)

 

 

So how’s your week going?  Good I hope.  One of the coolest things that I did Monday was stop by my brothers house and spend some time with this little girl…

We went on a trip to the store for some birthday ideas….Her birthday is coming up at the end of this month so of course she had to show me some of the things that she wants.  We hit the make-up isle, fingernail polish, movies, posters, books, crafts and um……I know there is something that I am forgetting.

I have this running joke with a co-worker about eating healthy so when I came across this pictures, I thought of her…

Running in shorts?

Morning!  How are you this morning?  I hope that you had a great Tuesday!

First, please please go check out my friend Caitlin’s blog this morning and read this post! 

 

Today is my half day, but I have a drs appointment this morning at 11:00, so it’s going to be a really short day for me.  When I get out of my appointment, I am going to stop by a friend of mines new restaurant he and his family are opening!  I can’t wait for them to get it open so I can go there!  He is pretty excited about  too. 

 

So yesterday on my run….  What I have come to realize is that we are all different runners.  Right?  Right.  We are all shaped different and our bodies all react differently to running.  Oh boy does it ever!  Well, yesterday was actually the first day that I have ever ran in shorts.  Oh gosh it was not pretty.  I am not talking about just being in shorts.  I am talking about the fact that I will never have small thighs and somewhere along the first of three miles, the shorts just disappeared.  Crude, I know….but fact.  A funny one though!! 

The tank top that I had chosen also kept riding up!!  So when I say it was not pretty, it wasn’t.  It was a hot mess and the whole stinkin’ three miles I kept pulling at them both!!  The stubborn person that I am was not going to stop and change!

For the first time in a long time, I couldn’t wait for a run to end. 

My thighs were very well acquainted with each other! 

Back to capris it is!!

What do  you guys wear when you run?? 

 

When I do finally get home, I am going to spend some time getting things tidy and clean.  Lately, I feel like my bedroom has become this catch all of a place not somewhere that I sleep!  It’s where I sleep, my office, a library, my gym, my closet, you get the picture. 

 

I hope you guys have a great day!
