And now for a rundown of last week’s workouts…
Last week marked the 38th week of my pregnancy and I managed to get three workouts in as well as a few walks with Sadie. I actually felt better than I have in weeks last week and was really excited for limited nausea and a surprising burst of energy! I took advantage of the extra energy but still didn’t push myself too much. Strength training felt great but I limited cardio to walking with Sadie and it felt good to simply move and enjoy some fresh air with my favorite furry walking buddy.
Weekly Workouts: June 2018
Monday: Leg Day Workout
The leg workout on the agenda for Burn Boot Camp on Monday called for a strength/plyometric hybrid and I knew going into the workout that I’d be modifying quite a bit. I eliminated all jumping exercises from my workout and completed the above modified version. It was a great lower body burner!
Tuesday: 2 Mile Walk with Sadie
I felt great on Tuesday morning from a nausea standpoint but not overly energetic to the point that doing anything other than walking Sadie sounded appealing to me. I decided to take that as a sign and leashed Sadie up for a two mile walk around our neighborhood while Chase was at camp. It was such a gorgeous morning on Tuesday and I loved some one-on-one time with my girl and used our walk to catch up on the latest Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me podcast.
Wednesday: Upper Body Workout
Wednesday’s upper body workout was a good one! It was a triple set format that included three circuits that I completed in a decreasing repetition format. I wasn’t feeling any cardio at all on Wednesday but if you’re looking for a quick HIIT workout to pair with this upper body workout, I highly recommend this 25 minute treadmill HIIT workout. I’m oddly already getting excited for HIIT workouts to make their way back into my workout regimen… in a few months.
Thursday: 2 Mile Walk with Sadie
Another walk with Sadie served as my workout on Thursday! We covered just over two miles and I listened to the Babes and Babies podcast. It’s a podcast started by two former Bachelor contestants and the first time I listened to it, I had pretty low expectations but I ended up really loving it. Carly and Jade seem so normal and touch on a variety of motherhood and parenting topics ranging from postpartum struggles in the fourth trimester to breastfeeding and more. I think first-time moms in particular would love this one!
Friday: Total Body Strength Workout
I made it to Burn Boot Camp for a total body strength workout on Friday and though I kept my weights relatively light and eliminated some plank exercises our trainer incorporated into the workout, I felt like it was a good one! (The above workout is the one I completed.) I was feeling unexpectedly energetic and it felt great to get in the gym and move my body.
Saturday: 2 Mile Walk with Ryan and Sadie
With my parents in town visiting from Florida, Ryan and I were able to sneak away first thing in the morning for some couple time and took Sadie on a walk before everyone else was awake. We covered two miles with our girl before 7 a.m. and I loved beginning the day on an active note even if I did have to slow our pace way down on the smallest of hill inclines.
Sunday was a rest day! We spent the day on the lake with my family which meant it included some swimming, floating and plenty of relaxation on the water!
