Count Down till Christmas!

*Whewwww* It’s been such a long week! Even though this week has been a cake walk at work, it’s definitely dragged on and on and ON! I’m itching to get out of this gray blazer and go home! Today is my cardio day, so I’m choosing to go home and do a few new Zuzka videos to get a good sweat on, raise my heart rate and challenge my whole entire body. I waaaaaay prefer doing an hour of her videos over doing an hour on the elliptical and dreadmill. Soooo boooooringggg! I need to get outside and run again! My husband is FINALLY going to take me on a run around our new place, if the weather permits. He’s been on his Winter Break and really enjoying himself. I definitely miss having him around not stressing out about school.

Tonight I’m doing ZWOW #98 & ZWOW #95. I will be finishing with her new series Power Yoga #5. Once again, you’ll have to go to her ZGYM to view the FULL workout. Totally worth the $10 a month, I’m telling you! NO! I’m not a sales rep, although I’d be a damned good one!

Both ZWOW’s I’m doing today are all bodyweight exercises. ZWOW #98 looks like the following 15 min AMRAP  (if I’m feeling daring, maybe I’ll go for 20 min!):

  • 10 Jump Lunges into 3 1-leg Dive Bombers <—- SUPER HARD!
  • 10 Bird Dog Burpees
  • 10 Sit-ups to Burpees

ZWOW #95 is the following, completing 3 rounds (maybe I’ll go for 4!):

  • 10 Pistol to 1-leg Burpee
  • 40 Alt. Crab Dance
  • 40 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Back Lunge Kick-ups

Finally, I’ll cool down with a Power Yoga video. Her Power Yoga videos are pretty challenging as well. They stretch the whole body and challenge the heart rate. My goal is to stretch out 3 videos to last at least an hour.

Tomorrow is LEG DAAAAAAAY! Pretty damn excited about it too, not gonna lie. I’ve got a pretty good workout planned. Some times I really wish I had a workout partner for leg day so I could have a spotter on the squat rack. I feel like such a loner. Tomorrow’s workout is the following:


  • -1 minute jump rope
  • -10 burpees
  • -1 minute jump rope
  • -10 jump lunge w/ kick
  • -1 minute rope
  • -10/10 side plank dips

  • -16-8-8-16 Swiss Ball Hamstring Pulls
  • -20 Dumbbell Pull Throughs
  • -10-10-10 Drop Set Hamstring Curls
  • -10-10 Stiff Legged Dead Lifts x3

  • -20 Goblet Squats
  • -15-15-15 Leg Press Variations
  • -20 Smith Machine Vertical Glute Press
  • -10-10-10 Drop Set Smith Machine Squats x3

  • -20 minute stair master single leg step ups (20/20)
  • -25 minute treadmill run / elliptical

Whew, gonna be a fun workout! Definitely gonna be sore on Saturday, so good thing Saturday is all upper body. I’m going to try Iron Works on Saturday too, pretty stoked about it! Really looking forward to having a new gym that’s clean, has a great environment, great equipment, and HOPEFULLY not busy at 5am 🙂

Today I’m sticking with my meal plan! I only sweet I allowed myself today was a cookie at work. That’s it for the day! Nothing else! This morning I had a Nature’s Bakery Whole Wheat Fig Bar and a steak Cesar salad for lunch. Today I still get to eat a banana and my ground turkey, quinoa, black bean, corn, whole wheat wrap. I know, pretty boring and staple diet, but I know the results are going to be great! I will be experimenting with new recipes next week too, so stay tuned or suggest some great ones!

My suit comes in tomorrow, I’m so freakin’ excited! It actually looks like they tried delivering it today, so now it’s at the post office. Can’t wait to pick it up and try it on! CHEEZIN! ^_^ Putting it on will be a humbling experience for sure, still have a looooong way to go.

Well, that’s it for today, I hope you all have a great night. Don’t forget to pass along any great recipes if you have any!
