Wedding Wednesday: Financé vs Financée vs Feyoncé

Lately, I have found myself typing this word a lot and I was never too sure which version of the word to use. So, I did what I always do when  I have a question – I consulted Mr. Google and was blown away by the result. So today I have officially dubbed Wedding Wednesday: Financé vs Financée vs Feyoncé.

Fiancé – SL

SL knocked it out of the park with this birthday gift. I love Queen B and try to emulate her each and every day.

The “101” Workout

Back to serious-ness here. I did a killer workout last night!

The 101 Workout

Get it? It all adds up to 101. Moving on.

I couldn’t decide between a cardio session or BodyPump when I got home form work so I decided to combine running and weights and came up with this gem. I finished this super sweaty workout in 34:58. My goal was 40 minutes #crushedit! I ran each of the miles on the treadmill between 6.0 and 6.8 at a 1% incline.

Modifications

  • No treadmill? Run 0.5 miles from your house then run back.
  • No weights? Do regular sit ups, renegade rows and flies without weights.

Have a great Wednesday!

15-Minute Sweaty HIIT Workout

HIIT workouts are everywhere and for good reason. They are effective and efficient (two of may favorite words). HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts can be completed in even the shortest time frame and work all the muscles…hence why you get SO sweaty. I’ve done this 15-minute sweaty HIIT workout a couple times this week and figured I’d share it.

All you need for this workout is a set of dumbells (and a kettle bell if you have one. If not, no big deal).

If you want to make this workout harder or easier, play around with the interval timing – try 30 on 30 off. If you are super ambitious today, try completing the workout twice. Just make sure to take water breaks (or any breaks) as needed.

Today’s Workout

This morning started early at 5:15 and i dragged my tired legs out of bed to complete this workout followed by a 15 minute walk. My legs were only up for walking after doing about a thousand lunges and squats yesterday with my at home BodyPump. Les Mills – I love you, hate you, love you.

Breakfast

Last night I made myself 2 protein pancakes (protein powder, egg whites, banana, cashew milk and cinnamon) for this morning and tomorrow morning’s breakfast. I love having a warm breakfast on cold mornings but I NEVER have time to make one. Hence, making them the night before.

I topped my pancake with 4 sliced strawberries and heated one of my pancakes up in the microwave. Warm pancakes with warm strawberries – AMAZING! I will be doing the exact same thing tomorrow morning!
