Work It Out Wednesday: Week 15

Hi gang!
Anyone else have issues waking up these days? I go to the boxing gym a few times a week for the 6am class and WOW it's tough to wake up! On my non-gym days it's hard to wake up at that time, too...but luckily I have quick workouts on my Pinterest Motivation Board that give me swift ways to earn my morning shower! ;)

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 and lunges and I did not go to my knees during the push-ups.
Overall impression: This was a pretty decent workout. It wasn't my favorite or anything, but I didn't hate it!
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 had woken up late when I completed this workout, so I was happy to have a little sweat fest in about 20 minutes.
Would I do it again? Definitely! This is perfect for traveling!

Weekly recipe:
Just because I'm finished with Whole30 certainly doesn't mean that I'm finished sharing recipes! (I plan to do a recap of my Whole30, by the way!!)

I picked two recipes from my favorite site, Gina's Skinny Taste, for a lovely Friday meal with our cousin: Arroz con Pollo and chocolate parfaits!



I can't recommend these recipes enough! They are delicious!!!

Weekly motivation:


This is so so so true, especially for me. Anyone else a stress eater? 

I think this is the most important thing to remember:


Weekly workout sass:


haha gotta love Cookie Monster :)

Have a good one!

I am seriously the worst when it comes to being a stress/emotional eater. I am also a professional at talking myself out of working out. I need to get it together, my wedding is less than 6 months away!
