Work It Out Wednesday: Week 13

Hi gang!
How's your week going so far? I can't complain, but I'm already ready for the weekend!
This past weekend I gave a new workout a whirl. Please feel free to send me any good workouts that you see! I'm always on the lookout!

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 weights allowing me to do some bicep, shoulder and tricep exercises  throughout and I didn't go to my knees during the push-ups. I also did different crunches each round. I did five rounds and it took me about 15 minutes or so all together.
Overall impression: I highly doubt I burned 500 calories in 15 minutes like the image claims it will, but I did like the workout. Adding arm movements during the squats helped make this feel like a total body workout. It's definitely a good one for traveling, even without weights.
Sweat factor (on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is when I look like I just got out of the shower): About a 5.
How I felt when it was over: Great! I was in a rush when I did this on Saturday morning so I was happy that I made a little bit of time before my shower for a little sweat fest.
Would I do it again? Definitely! It's a good and quick workout for days when you don't feel like working out, days when you're traveling, days for getting back into the swing of working out and/or are getting over an illness, etc. This is just another proof point that you can do even a little something, even when you think you don't have time! No excuses, folks!

Weekly recipe:
Every week this month I'm recapping my Whole30 experience, and am sharing recipes for others going through the program. I'm using my Wednesday posts to highlight my favorite recipe of the week. This week was tough to choose because wow my tastebuds are happy!
One rose above the rest and has me super excited for work lunches, though!

Behold, the salsa shredded chicken:


You guys.
I can't even describe how good this is.
It's the easiest recipe, too!
In addition to the chicken and picante sauce (sugar free!), I added some celery and red bell pepper.
Yum. Yum. Yum!!!

Weekly motivation:


So true!

Weekly workout sass:



hehe I love these!

Have a good one!
