It is Monday!! are you excited?
The past 3 days were amazing!! Seriously we are very blessed to have such amazing parents. They helped a lot while up here over at the kitchen, as well helped do some painting over at Lori and Gary’s new house. Anyone else love having family come visit to have free help? We sure appreciated the extra hands.
While we enjoyed our company and eating out, we took 3 days off from working out. We did not feel guilty one bit. Life is too short too sweat over missing a workout. Something we have learned and come to accept over the years.
But wait, aren’t we FitFluential Ambassadors? How could we promote not working out for 3 days as a good thing??
Well, as much as we love to workout and get a good sweat it, we also know taking time off is not only good for the body, but the mind too. Life is about balance, and sometimes you just got to go with the flow and break out of habits. Learn to live in the moment.
It has been awhile since we talked workouts.
Here is a recap of our week of workouts from last week:
this week we pushed ourselves to do 5:30 plank, and one day we did it for 6 minutes!!
Saturday – ended up taking the DAY OFF as we had a long day at the bakery
Monday – Jenn Fit Legs on Fire – we could only complete 2 rounds, our legs were dying.
Tuesday – Tone It Up Surfer Beach Babe DVD workout
Wednesday – 10 minute ZWOW #12 workout. We still struggle with our pistol squats, we use our equalizer to lean on.
Thursday – Tone It Up Summer Slim Workout + Sunkissed Abs. We did each routine twice through.
Friday – DAY OFF
Saturday – DAY OFF
Sunday – DAY OFF
What will inspire us to move our bodies this week…
Have a fit-ablous day!
