Week of Workouts {Nov. 22-28|

Posted November 29, 2014 in Week of Workouts, week, Piloxing and 6 more

I had a great week of working out. I took three yoga classes, and tried two new fitness classes - hot yoga and PiYo! 

I have a full blog post about my hot yoga experience coming up next week!

PiYo was great! The class doesn't usually fit into my schedule, but the pool was closed at the CHI Wellness Center and my water aerobics class was cancelled. It was nice to change things up. I liked that it was fast-paced, and all the squats and lunges made me feel like I was getting lots of strength work. I dragged the BF with me, and it wasn't his fave (see photo below), but it makes me happy that he's always willing to try a new class.

This week was Thanksgiving and I got in two workouts! I took a morning yoga class at the CHI Wellness Center and the BF and I went for a run. It was cold (22 degrees with an 8 degree wind chill), so I got really bundled up. I love starting holidays with a good workout!

Here are my workouts from the past week.

PiYo Class Review

*The Kearney Family YMCA invited me to try out a PiYo class. All opinions are my own.

I recently took a PiYo class at the Kearney Family YMCA. This is a new class at their gym. It launched in January!

This was actually my second PiYo class. I tried PiYo for the first time at KTown Shakedown. But I always need to try a class a few times and by different instructors before I can form an opinion.

Before I get into my thoughts, let's discuss the details of PiYo. It's a low impact workout that combines Pilates and yoga-inspired moves to burn fat and sculpt lean muscles (source). You are in constant motion during the workout, which keeps your heart rate up to help you burn more calories.

Here are my thoughts on PiYo..

Self-Love February Recap

Posted February 28, 2015 in Self-Love February, self love, self-care and 11 more

Today is the last day of Self-Love February. I hope you go into March feeling a little more love for yourself!

Creating content based on this theme was really important to me because there are so many women (and men) who spend too much time criticizing themselves, which leads to self-hate, which leads to not treating your body with care.

Each week this month, I challenged you to do something every day that would help you love yourself a little more. If you didn't participate or missed a week, do it in March (or April or May). Finding self-love is a journey and takes work!

Here's a recap of Self-Love February...
