We made it through Monday everyone! That’s the hard part of the week, right? My Monday actually ended up being great! My students were great for the most part, I was able to leave my school before 4:00, and I got in an awesome workout! As I was doing this workout at the gym yesterday, I kept thinking about how I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you because I know some of y’all will love it! If you are wanting to work your upper body, while also getting in some intense cardio, try this!
Make sure you warm up first, and cool down and stretch when you are done! I ran my mile at an incline of 0.5, and then increased it to 1 for the last .2 of the mile. Use whatever speed challenges you! And for the upper body exercises make sure you use a weight that will challenge you. If you do, then I guarantee you that you will be a sweaty mess when you are done with the whole workout! I definitely was!
Here are links to some of the exercises.
Ropes (except don’t do the jump squats that the guy in this video does, just the ropes. )
As always, if you try it out, let me know what you think!
When I got home from the gym I made myself a shake using my new Sunwarrior protein powder, which I am absolutely loving!
After drinking my shake I fixed our plates for dinner, which was so easy thanks to food prep on Sunday and my crockpot! I tried a new to us meal, chicken provencal.
I made Ryan a plate with sweet potatoes, green beans, and two leftover Olive Garden breadsticks.
I put mine in a bowl with sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli and squash because everything tastes better in a bowl mixed in with everything else.
As I started eating I told Ryan I thought the chicken would be better with some marinara sauce on top. Ryan agreed, and luckily I had some marinara sauce in the fridge, so I heated us up some and poured it on Ryan’s chicken and put some in my bowl. The marinara sauce made the meal guys! It made the chicken so much better, and if you try this recipe I definitely suggest putting some marinara sauce on top!
After dinner, I showered, packed our lunches, and with the help of Ryan cleaned our kitchen. Tomorrow I am hoping to get our clothes folded and put up before I go to bed!
But now it’s already time for me to get ready for bed. I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
