Well, here we are at the beginning of a new week and I fell short of my 3 weight training workouts last week. Often times when you set goals your plan doesn’t go exactly as planned…you can chose to beat yourself up over it or pick your self up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward.
Week 4 Workout Recap
The week wasn’t a total loss as I did get workouts in and also cooked a lot. Here’s what it looked like:
Sat, Nov 15th – Yoga
Sun, Nov 16th – Walk 1 mile
Tues, Nov 18th – Weight training workout originally posted here
Thurs, Nov 20th – Walk 1 mile and Weight training workout – All upper body circuit. I used 15lb Dumbbells (since the only other ones I had were 5lbs and that wasn’t going to be enough! I thought I would be sorry jumping right to 15lbs, but I surprisingly wasn’t sore like I expected.) The exercises were: Chest Press, Chest Fly, Single Arm DB Row, Shoulder Press, Behind the head Tricep, and Bicep Curls. Complete 10 reps for each exercise….then go back through the circuit doing 9 reps, then through again for 8 reps, then 7, then 6…all the way down to 1.
Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake (click through for recipe)
I tweaked the recipe just a bit by adding chopped up carrots, celery, onions, and peppers to the mix instead of the fresh basil and green onions (since I didn’t have those.) Don’t mind the missing bottom left corner…I decided to taste it before I took the picture!
Quick Beauty Tip for Busy Moms
So, if you are on Facebook you must have heard about (or been invited to and online party for) Younique 3-D Fiber Lashes. Well, I have been seeing posts about this product for about a year, but never looked into it further. Then 4 people I personally know all invited me to their Facebook Younique parties…so I decided, what the hell…let me try this stuff out! One of my personal training clients (who I have been working with for about 4-5 years) posted some photos and videos of before and after of herself and other women who wore the product…she is also a presenter for the item so I bought my first 3-D Fiber Lashes with her. (They do have other products so I did support my other friend’s parties by buying some lip gloss and mineral shimmer eyeshadow.) All I am saying is, when I have to run out of the house and want to look presentable, but don’t have enough times to do a full face of makeup these are enough to do the trick! Here’s my results.
I think in this photo I did 2 layers of lashes…but you can keep building them up for a more dramatic look. Since I was only going to Walmart and the park for a walk I didn’t want to go nuts! The fibers are made of Green Tea, so no weird material going on your lashes. If you would like more info or to purchase this product yourself check out my client Christine’s website here.
