Body Back: Week Three Recap!

Happy Tuesday — and another end to amazing week of Body Back! ¬†Can you believe we are already starting our halfway point in this 8 week program! Time flies when you are having FUN! ūüôā Did you miss my recap posts of week one and two? No prob! ¬†Check them out here: ONE // TWO.

Week three was AWESOME.  Seriously. I feel like I was a total BEAST with my workouts this week.

Monday morning started off a little crazy, as I almost MISSED class due to my alarm not going off. ¬†….Ok, that was a lie — It did go off, but my sleepyhead must have pressed snooze without even realizing it, because as I opened my eyes and saw 5:30AM on my phone, I freaked out. ¬†Class starts at 5:45AM, but it’s about a 20-30 minute drive for me, so you can imagine my panic. ¬†The weird thing was, I was dreaming about missing class, and sure enough, I almost did. ¬†Our brains are so amazing.. ūüôā

But, alas, I did NOT miss class.. just missed a few minutes of the first round — which just so happened to be burpees, which makes my heart sad. ¬†I definitely made up for it, by going super hard with the remaining time I had. ¬†Trust me, there was A LOT of sweaty mess at the end of that workout. ¬†Definitely a butt kick!

Hold it… HOLD IT….

Oh– and I weighed in at 150.0 lbs — down 2 lbs from week two! ¬†Awesome news!

Monday and Wednesday’s BB workouts were killer, lots of cardio and strength exercises — and I decided that after each BB morning, I’d go for a quick 1-2 mile run. ¬†This was a great addition to my morning routine, and so refreshing. ¬†I’ve become accustomed to running when Ella naps, which is usually in the dead hot heat around 1PM. ¬†So, running before the sun comes up is like a treat for me! ¬†New goal is to do this around the same time every morning (not just BB mornings), because I know as summer inches closer, running at 1PM is going to be impossible — or a death wish. ¬†Heat Stroke. ¬†Oh, Florida.

The rest of the week, I kicked major butt with my at-home workouts. ¬†I managed to workout at least twice a day for everyday this week, with many days being 3-4 workouts. ¬†Between taking Ella for walks to doing 21DF workouts at home — I’ve been feeling amazing!

On Friday, one of my BB friends came over for a special “Dirty 30” workout I created for her 30th birthday. ¬†This consisted of 4 rounds of exercises — each round had between 5-8 exercises, with an average of 15-20 reps of each exercise. ¬†We then took roughly a minute or two break between each set. ¬†Exercises were a mixture of burpees, push-ups, high knees, squats, wall sits, planks, lunge jumps. ¬†We were BEAT when it was done!

Nutrition this week was also on point. ¬†I am noticing that I’m a bit of a cracker snacker, though — I’m going to be more mindful of this going into week 4 and beyond. ¬†No. More. Ritz. ¬†Ritz = More Burpees. Also, I tried a new recipe: Balsamic and Basil Quinoa Salad — which was basically strawberries, granny smith apples, cucumbers, onion, quinoa, and balsamic/basil dressing. ¬†It’s my new favorite meal — and super healthy! ¬†Thanks to K for enlightening me!

Week three was awesome — but really, each week seems to be getting better and better. ¬†Not only did I score a workout buddy on our “off” days, but I feel like I’m starting to see a difference. ¬†The scale may not be moving as much as we’d like, but it’s like I’ve said before — the scale is just a number, it doesn’t show how much ass has been kicked!

I can NOT wait to see what kind of results we all get after 8 weeks.  We are getting STRONGER every. damn. day.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! ¬†Check in tomorrow for DIY-Wednesday — it’s gonna be a good one!
