Week of Workouts: 9/1- 9/7

by agirlandhermutt on September 9, 2014

Hellllooooo! I’m in almost a giddy mood because Fall has arrived. It feels good to be just sweating in the gym and not on the walk to my car from the house. Plus, I’m in Fantasy Football mode and my obsession with the fun game is in full effect! Fall football=The Best!


Speaking of sweating…lets get to my Week of Workouts (WOW) 9/1- 9/7

One of the big “fitspiration” sayings I see everywhere is that you shouldn’t miss a Monday for working out. I don’t necessarily agree with this since I think you should listen to your body. BUT! I like the idea behind the concept. Start the week off on the right foot! Even though Monday was a holiday, I still wanted to get a good sweat going. The BF and I headed over to the gym at my prime working out hour, 10am, and busted out the 5 Mile Challenge.

1 mile on the treadmill
1 mile on the elliptical
1 mile (or 15 min) on the stairmaster
3 miles on the bike
1 mile (1609 m) on the rower

This usually takes us about an hour for the challenge and it goes by so fast! I got this from Instagram. See? Instagram is good for something other than wasting time!

Pure Barre

AM: Pure Barre
PM: FlyWheel! My friend, Karen, had never done a FlyWheel class so we decided to the studio so she could try it out. Randomly the class was a Kanye vs. Jay-Z class, which is entertaining. I managed to have my best class yet! My thigh muscles are getting stronger and stronger thanks to Pure Barre and I’m noticing this in my performance in spinning AND running/walking. Bonus!

AM: Pure Barre
PM: Turbo Fire HIIT

I’m not typically a 2x a day worker outer, but I had the energy so I figured why not!? I’m obsessed with Turbo Fire. Not enough to do the whole program (whoa buddy. calm your horses!), but enough to add it in every now and then. Oh, and that is Kork in the corner just staring at the wall while waiting for the jumping to be over. Genius pup at work.


Total Body Melt. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. It was so hot in that fitness room. I started sweating before we even started moving! I think I ended up taking two naps on Saturday. Pathetic.


I had all kinds of fun things happening on Sunday! A few of my friends and I headed out to Honey Pot Hill Orchards for a special painting event through The Paint Bar. We painted canvas totes and then went apple picking while the totes dried. It was so much fun!

Fortunately many of my friends are more organized than I am and brought along goodies for a picnic, including homemade hot pepper jelly. It was the perfect day for some outdoor eating. And for a hayride!

The rest of the evening was rejoicing in the Patriots loss (ha!) and cursing my sad excuse for a Fantasy Football team.



This week starts the 8-week Frisky Fall Challenge from Tone It Up. I’ll be participating again through Instagram and Twitter. You should join me! My plan is to use Paige’s bootcamp workouts (which starts next Monday!) as my workouts for the TIU challenge. Talk about a killer combo!

See you soon!
