Work it Out Wednesday: Week 6

Hi gang!

How's your week going? Keeping warm? It's so cold in Chicago!
I don't know about you, but as the weather starts to get colder it becomes slightly more difficult to make it to the gym. It's pretty easy to create any excuse to stay indoors.

All the more reason for at-home workouts to keep us all in check!

Weekly disclaimer:
Remember what I said about my lack of qualifications? Please keep in mind that I am aware that I am chubby and have no fitness/nutrition authority. I'm just trying to spread some wellness love as I fight the battle to live well myself.

Weekly Workout:


How I made it harder: I added dumbbells to the squats and didn't go to my knees for the pushups. After five rounds, that's 100 pushups! Woot!
Overall impression: I really like this workout! It took me almost 32 minutes to complete five rounds. I'd like to do five rounds in under 30 minutes. Someday :)
Sweat factor (on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is when I look like I just got out of the shower): 2 after round 1, 5 after round 2, 8 after round 3 and 10 for the last two rounds!
How I felt when it was over: Fantastic! It wasn't a super hard workout but I was really happy when it was over.
Would I do it again? Absolutely! Another good workout for traveling or when I make excuses to not go to the boxing gym!

Weekly recipe:


I need to be better about packing lunches for work. I'm so lucky to work close to home (and close to awesome lunch spots!), so I just need to get into a habit of eating right while saving some dollars! I definitely want to give these bread-free rollups a try. Avocados are one of my favorite foods so I have a feeling that I will love these!

Weekly motivation:


Words to live by!
And gosh I want those abs!!

Weekly workout sass
(I have two this week. I feel like they pair nicely.):

hehe love it!

Do you have any go-to healthy lunch recipes?
Please share!

Have a good one!

I just took a screen shot of that workout. It's perfect for over the holidays when my gym is closed.

I am so inspired by your weekly workout posts! I find myself getting bored with the same old routine and then end up finding any excuse possible to skip a workout here and there. I'm going to start using your posts for inspiration! Plus those turkey wraps look delicious.
