Hope everyone had a great weekend. 🙂
Seeing as it is Move It Monday here on TheUprootedOkie, you’re going to get a glimpse at my workouts this week, in addition to a Plyometrics workout that YOU can do. You’ll do it, right? Yes, you will.
This week is similar to last week, with a few tweaks. D’s family will be here from Wednesday to Sunday, so I am trying to keep my workouts at the casa later in the week. Hitting it harder early on. The pics of our food these past few days warrant a few good workouts.
1 mile warm up
Stairmaster (15 minutes)
Bodyweight Circuit (flexed arm hang, push ups, lunges, squats, tricep chair dips, glute bridges…ab circuit)
*Complete this circuit 4 times, total. Do each exercise for 30 seconds – 1 minute, depending on your fitness level. If you are unable to do box jumps (yet!) you can modify to Step Ups.
**Rest between each exercise between 30 seconds- 1 minute. At the end of each circuit, rest 2-3 minutes, before repeating.
Side Plank w/ Hip Dip (right) – 30 seconds and 15 dips
Front Plank – 1 minute
Side Plank w/ Hip Dip (left) – 30 seconds
Stability Ball Leg Lowers – 10-12 reps
Sit Up & Reach w/ Medicine Ball – 12 reps (Iused a 10 lb med ball, use what suits you)
Repeat the ab circuit 1-2 times.
*All said and done, this workout took me around 50 minutes or so, before stretching. Well worth the hour it took in all.
We stayed at a little bed and breakfast in Hollywood. . .it was actually a more affordable route than a traditional hotel. Score!
My girl Julie! Love that Okie.
The D and I.
After a night out like that one, you need a little comfort food. So we made our way to downtown LA, and went to this little gem. best decision ever. Nickel Diner.
We had to try one of their bestsellers, the maple Bacon doughnut. Out of the ballpark.
D’s breakfast. Pulled Pork Hash.
And mine.French toast with whipped mascarpone and stone fruit compote. It was the bomb.com
Our breakfast dessert. A homemade blueberry Pop -Tart. I know, ridiculous.
We went to the Angels game on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. I love ballpark food, and this was some of the best. D and I both got the “Skeeter” on Saturday. As if its name alone isn’t reason enough to order, this puppy is a foot long all beef hot dog, topped with brisket. We chose to add cheese. If you’re gonna do it, DO IT. 🙂 Check it out below.
The Skeeter. Boom.
Hope you all have a great start to the week. See ya later. 🙂
