This is kinda a long one!!

Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone is having a great day! I kinda have a lot to say in this post so stay with me!

I decided to work out a strength routine today for arms and abs and this is what I came up with(I probably just made up some of these names so ask if you have a question):

3 X15 Shoulder Press- 5lb weights 

3X15 Tricep Backs- 5lb weight

3X15 Back Flys- 5lb weights

3X15 Front Raises- 5lb weights

3X15 Tricep dips

3X15 Bicep Curls- 8lb weights

2X15 Bench Press- 55 lbs I think

3X15 Hammer Curls- 8lb weights

20(each leg) V-crunch

20 Reverse Crunches

20 Double Crunches

40 Bicycle Crunches

45 sec. plank

2 30 sec. side planks( 1 on each side)

I felt pretty tired after this so I think it is an effective plan. Question: How long do ya’ll stay with a specific strength routine before changing it up?? And for you runners, do you also do leg strength stuff like lunges, squats, etc??

On to my next topic… I received my package from my partner in The Simple Life Challenge and it’s awesome!! Check out all my goodies!!


In the package was a ton of stuff from Trader Joes which I was SO EXCITED about because we don’t have one here!! My package included: TJ’S Organic Dark Chocolate Bar, 2 TJS Fiberful fruit bars, 2 Nutz Over Choc. Luna Bars, Apple Pie Larabar, Choc. Brownie Zbar, Coconut Macadamia Nut Butter Ball, Banana Nut Bread Cliff Bar, Honey Graham Zbar, Cherry Cashew PURE Bar, 2 TJ’S Organic Fruits wraps, TJ’S Chewy Crisp Tom Yum Cashews, and TJ’S Dried Tropical Mangosteen.

Wow!! I hit the jackpot!! Thanks so much to my partner Allison!! You really outdid yourself:)

And lastly what I had for lunch today. It’s very similar to yesterday’s lunch!


Summer Salad that included spinach, cucumbers, tomato, red onion, grapes, and a little feta cheese with raspberry walnut dressing. Holy Yum!!


And to go along with that a toasted WW bun with melted cheese and a nectarine! Great lunch!

Thanks for making it all the way down this LONG post!! What is your favorite summer food??


  1. YAY! I am so glad you liked it! I get so stressed out with exchanges that everyone is going to hate what I send - so I really do hope you enjoy!

    THANK YOU so much for the INCREDIBLY GENEROUS GIFT - you are too kind girl!

  2. Your going to be rock solid with that workout. I do legs, but no weights. Mostly core with some squats, lunges, and lots of plyometrics.
