Work it Out Wednesday: Week 14

Hi gang!
How's your week going so far? My week is going well, but I'm already ready for the weekend.
I gave a new workout a whirl yesterday morning and really liked it!

As always, 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 and shoulder exercises during the squats but I unfortunately alternated going to my knees during the push-ups. I also did different crunches throughout to mix it up.
Overall impression: I highly doubt I burned 1,000 calories in the 20-25 minutes it took me to complete this like the image claims it will, but I did like the workout. It's definitely a good one for traveling!
Sweat factor (on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is when I look like I just got out of the shower): About a 6.
How I felt when it was over: Great! I felt ready for the day! I highly recommend this one!
Would I do it again? Definitely! I wanted to do a little cardio and the jumping jacks really got my heart pumping! I loved it!

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 I picked some awesome recipes! Wow! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think one narrowly won in my book:


Yum! This Paleo Shepherd's Pie is so so so tasty! I did change up the recipe a bit. For the potatoes I nixed the ingredients in the recipe and instead just mashed the boiled potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Delicious! I also just used veggies we had, including carrots, peas, onion and a little celery. I'm so excited for all of the leftovers!!

The recipe that came in at a very close second was the Strawberry Banana Paleo Breakfast Bars.
Oh my goodness sooooo good! Mine definitely didn't look this pretty:


Weekly motivation:


Exactly! No excuses, friends! We can do it!

Weekly workout sass:



Now these are workouts I could definitely master!

Have a good one!
