It’s Fabulously Fit Friday! Ready to gab about fitness, and snacking, and embarrassing playlists and things I’ve been coveting?
My new sneaks! Loving the hot pink always.
I decided to switch gyms. My gym I’ve been going to is over 30 minutes away from my house, making every trip 2-3 hours and just exhausting. Can’t I just go workout down the street and be there and back within an hour? Yes. Done. I’ve joined The Club (if you have one near you) and so far I like it. I love that it’s close by. The Spin class is a bit too different, and the yoga class definitely isn’t something I’ll go back to (it was just…not yoga), but I tried Body Pump for the first time and that was fun.
So, Body Pump?! At 19 weeks pregnant…holy CRAP I’m sore. I even took it “easy” with the weights, and still had trouble walking up and down stairs for 2 days afterwards. But I’m definitely going to try to make it to that class again. Shredded legs, here I come!
So lately I’ve been so fixated on getting a new fitness tracker. My brother got the FitBit Charge HR and now I want one too! Plus, my husband wants one too so we can compete (just kidding, I want the competition, he just wants the cool features). And now I have two of my besties wanting it too so we can cheer each other on. It’s a must. Definitely need to get my paws on one.
I’ve been working towards a goal of 100 miles by August because I’m doing the part 2 of Tone It Up’s Bikini Program challenge. I pretty much missed the first challenge for the summer because my face was in the toilet, but when they announced they’d do an additional 8 weeks, I was all in! I haven’t been doing a ton of their toning videos but I’ve been trying to stay on top of tracking my miles at the gym (walking, elliptical, spinning, etc)!
What playlist have you been listening to at the gym?! What gets your blood pumping? I’ve been hooked on the Jason DeRulo station on Pandora or the One Direction playlist on Spotify. Embarrassed. But it totally gets the job done!
Can we talk about food for a hot sec?! I’ve had a bit aversion to almost all proteins lately. So weird. So I’ve been struggling there and eating a ton of fruit and Nature Valley bars…and a box of Lucky Charms. But also, I’ve been hooked on snacking on those Blue Diamond Nut Thin crackers smeared with cashew butter and organic strawberry jam. Die. I made the cashew butter in my Blendtec and I swear it’s almost all gone now! Though, I did use most of it in this recipe.
And finally, I’ve started taking Prenatal Yoga. I was so nervous to go, thinking that it would be just a weird “you’re a goddess” class, but I was totally wrong. The stretching and movements are all so soothing and geared to the pregnant body, and they all feel SO good. I’m hooked. And I’m glad I started going so early because I hopefully will make friends with the other mammas in the class and be in fun mom-n-me yoga classes after our juniors are born.
That’s all I’ve got! What have you been inspired by, fitness wise? What are your favorite healthy snacks lately? And what cool fitness gadgets do you have that I’ll be coveting next?
