Work it Out Wednesday: Week 16

Hi gang!

I started a new workout program this week, called Piyo, part of the Beachbody home workout company (the same company that made P90X and Insanity). I'm pumped to do it and will let you know how it goes! It will be tough to do this while boxing and trying new Pinterest workouts for the blog, but I'm up for the challenge!

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:  weights for the squats, no knees for the pushups.
Overall impression: I woke up crazy late one day and needed something quick. This fit the bill because it took about 15-20 minutes. I still got to work on time!
Sweat factor (on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is when I look like I just got out of the shower): About a 4.
How I felt when it was over: Mad I didn't have a longer workout, but satisfied that I at least did something.
Would I do it again? Probably, especially if I do another mini workout with it!

Weekly recipe:

Earlier this week I had a Chinese food craving but didn't feel like having the bad stuff. I consulted my friend, Pinterest, and found this Skinny Chicken Fried Rice recipe. I had to give it a try!

This was so easy to make and it looked so pretty that I had to take a picture. I actually really hate brown rice, but this was delicious and I couldn't tell the difference. I also used chicken thighs instead of the breasts, but I just prefer thighs and I think they freeze/reheat better.

This recipe makes a TON which has been great: I froze a bunch and have been eating it for lunches. YUM!

Weekly motivation:


Might as well put that towel to good use, amIright?!?

And while we're on the topic of sweat:


I WILL go to the beach this summer. 
And if I'm covered up it's because I don't want to get burned, NOT because I hate my body.

Weekly workout sass:


I mean, seriously. I'm good about exercising, but I am a CHAMPION when it comes to eating. haha :)

Have a good one!

I would own the gym if it was as easy as eating! :)
