Going old school with the kneecap selfie game 😜 🙌🏼.
Since starting the #100strong challenge I've switched up my LISS to try and incorporate things other than just the elliptical and treadmill. Most days I do some steady weight lifting (lower weight, higher reps to keep the heart rate where it should be) for 20-30 minutes, jump on the treadmill at the highest incline and walk for 10 minutes and finish it off with about 10 minutes of core work (which has more to do with my September goal than LISS). It all ends up being 40-60 minutes of not too sweaty work but work that still wears those muscles out. LISS seems to be a question I get asked about a lot - don't overthink it. It's 40 minutes of low intensity work that keeps your heart rate steady. It doesn't have to be spent only on the treadmill or only on the elliptical, switch it up, do a little here and a little there so you don't get bored and dread it. Keep your body guessing and your mind interested.

#goalweightmet . It was July 2015 since I saw this weight!! We went on a cruise and then several more vacations and I just let the weight slowly pile on until I peaked at 122 or more from our Disney vacations. I'm not a huge fan of the scale if it means muscle weight, but happy I'm doing some fat burning!!
Today's #sweatyselfie ! 2.5 mile hill run at OTF for strength day. Floor work included a lot of chest exercises which was TOUGH because I'm still recovering from Tuesday's lift. Hit 9.2mph on the treadmill for my last All Out! Also, bonus picture of my abs because I feel them starting to peek through. Can't wait to see them again, it's been 6 years since I've had a six pack but I know I can get back there with a few more months of work. Happy Thursday!
I'm really trying to zero in on my problem areas in nutrition. I eat very balanced but now I need to step up my game which means better tracking (since I have very specific goals). I have never really counted macros or calories, like I said...just maintaining balance...so I needed some help. This app, My Macros+, has been great so far! It's not the most accurate out there but it does give a general idea of what I'm consuming and where I need to make adjustments! For example: more protein (I was only getting about 1/2-2/3 my daily requirement...explains my soreness and weak feeling) and less processed sugars (as I have Reese's coffee creamer 🤷♀️🤣🙈) what apps have you all used for tracking food and workouts?
No weights added yet, working on form. First time doing hang cleans. I've always been a dumbbell girl, not sure why but just feel more comfortable with those vs the bar but working on it!! @nikkig.personaltrainer 💪🏼#fitmom#goals#momsthatlift

People always say #Vegans have nothing good to eat! We beg to differ.
All I did was take a main stream recipe for apple cinnamon muffins. Swapped the milk for almond milk and eggs for a chia seed egg (Google that 'ish 😉) and ta'dah!! Dairy free, egg free, gluten free, animal free... but FULL OF FLAVOUR and the kids loved them (even the non vegans) -- recipe below.
Single leg glute bridges are an excellent glute activation for warming up before deadlifts to make sure that the glutes are "turned on" and ready for work. The glutes, even tho they are a powerful muscle, can tend to be weakened from sitting for long periods of time and then the quads take over during compound lifts, leading to even more glute weakness over time.😩
Isolating each leg for the hip bridges is a great way to make sure one glute isn't compensating for the other as well!
Haven't had a good night's sleep since I've been home. It's Thursday in Japan and they are just starting their day as my Wednesday is coming to an end. I always thought people were exaggerating the whole jet lag thing, but when am I going to be back to normal?!

Heavy squats are not my strong point but I love them and I'm working on improving them.
