All the details of last week's workouts! I noticed my foot was bothering me whenever I put weight on it this past week, so my workouts were all at home this week. We head out to backpack Zion later this week and since I will be hiking over 40 miles in the course of 3.5 days, I really need to be in tip-top shape. These workouts allowed me to cater to my bum foot but still get some movement in!
Every once in awhile I get a craving for a pasta-like dish. I love baked spaghetti squash but that always feels like it takes forever. It's a pretty hands-off meal, but I don't always want to wait the 40 minutes while it cooks. This is when zucchini comes to my rescue.
Having been an active member of SWEAT Chicago for a year, I was no stranger to using a kettlebell in my workouts. That being said, no matter how many times I did swings or squats in those classes, I had never devoted a block of time to perfecting my form, which is surprising since I obsess over things like that. When Erin of Loop Looks suggested we meet up at OTG Bootcamp for some kettlebell work, I jumped right on that idea.
One thing I've always tried to be on here is pretty transparent, but lately I feel like I haven't been completely upfront about some of the struggles I've been experiencing. A lot of my experience with Paleo revolved around the weight I lost. It's something I was and am still very proud of. Unfortunately, as the saying goes, not all that glitters is gold.
All the details from last week's workouts! I'm trying to run more and fit in some additional total body workouts. I used to rely solely on my fitness classes for the total body stuff. Now, I'm finding that I enjoy it more and more, so I decided to start creating these on my own at-home to fill in on days I don't go to classes.
