Fitness Friday 15

Hi Friends!

This week has literally flown by, most likely because I’ve been on vacation and those weeks always go by the fastest. It wasn’t my best week of workouts, but I did manage a few good ones! Before we get to that though, just a couple more updates on the new site!

I finished the drop downs yesterday, so be sure to check them out!
The About tab has a section about me, the furry fam and a contact form.
The Inspiration tab has links to all my WIAW posts, my Lindsay’s Lunchbox & Lindsay Loves series, easy dinner and snack ideas, etc.
The Workout tab has links to all my Fitness Friday posts, and then the workouts are divided into separate pages for treadmill, cardio, weights, etc.

Another new feature is the sharaholic buttons at the bottom of each post. They make it super easy for you to tweet the link to my posts, post them on facebook or email them….so share away, my friends!

And finally, because Rita is SO AWESOME, she figured out a way to get the whole name of my blog to show up if you’re reading my posts on your phone! weeeeeee!!!! gosh i love her :)

Still working on updating my blog roll!

So let’s take a look at the workouts shall we?

March 16th

I turned to twitter late Thursday night looking for a HARD workout that I could get up and do Friday morning. Christine hooked me up!

Here’s the link to the workout. It’s a good one!


March 17th
Rest day. My parents and I walked the dogs 3 miles (to get coffee!)


March 18th
I had a busy weekend, dropped my parents off at the airport and then went straight to work. When I got home, I wanted a workout that would get the job done quickly! I put together this 16 min tabata. Each tabata has one exercise standing up and one down on the ground:



A couple of videos for you:

Toe Taps
Stationary Frog Hops


March 19th

Needed another quick workout so I ran a mile on the treadmill and then did this quick med ball ab workout. Something is always better than nothing!


The ab workout goes by quick but I was feelin’ it by the end!


March 20th
Rest day. My back hurt, my knee hurt and I was exhausted. Listen to your body!


March 21st
Hubby and I headed to the basement to workout after he got home from work. I updated one of my older workouts and let me tell you, it BURNS!


Mar 22nd: I wasn’t in the mood to come up with my own workout so I decided to let Twitter do the work for me! I sent out a tweet asking people to tell me their favorite bodyweight exercise and once I had enough responses, I turned them into a workout!

Here’s what it looked like:


I was pretty much dead (but still smiling!) by that last wall sit:

Annnnnnd, I think I have chia seed stuck in my teeth. Whoops! Also, please excuse the cat litter and brewing supplies in the background :)


And that’s all I’ve got for today!

Happy Friday!

  25. Great new look, how exciting! Your workouts are intense, wow, I’m so impressed. I always want to get more s/t in but just prefer to run run run. I’ve gotten pretty good at getting 3 in each week, but don’t usually do all the extra Pylo work as well… I’m gonna use some of these!

  26. Your site looks so good! Great workouts for the week! I made a couple new workout too this week!

  27. I’m only getting to read this now and thank you for the shout out! I do love your Fitness Fridays. The Twitter Pyramid looks awesome and will be pinning that one.
