I mentioned on here a few weeks ago I had gained about 8-10 pounds recently. I am not one of those people who loose weight when they are stressed out I eat and drink wine instead- haha. At the end of each Summer I typically gain a few pounds but this is the most weight I have put on in awhile. I just feel gross and really want to lose the weight. I have been trying to eat fairly clean and work out but man this weight is hard to budge. I don’t know if it is because I am getting older or what but loosing weight is not as easy as it used to be. I know a lot of you asked me to share my workout routine and what I have been eating. I think I will do a whole separate post on my eating and just discuss my workout and gear today. If you follow me on instagram @snoopnattynat I have been trying to post pictures of some of my meals on my instastories so check that out.
As far as workouts I try to get in 4 a week. Ideally I would like to get in 5 but sometimes it is hard. I am thinking about starting the BBG program- has anyone done this? Heard great things about it and people’s progress with the program .
This is a sample schedule of my weekly workouts.
MONDAY- 1 hour barre class
TUESDAY- Cardio 30-40 minutes. I typically do the stairmill or treadmill and sometimes split the time on both machines. I do level 7-8 on the stairmill and on the treadmill I walk on an incline of 12 or do running intervals. After cardio I do 45 side bends (each side), both inner/outer thigh leg machines- 100 reps at 85 lbs, 30 pull-ups on the pull-up machine using 130 lbs (tip the heavier the weight the easier it is to pull yourself up), 30 sit ups with a 6lb weighted ball, 50 arm dips using the machine.
WEDNESDAY- typically skip the middle day
THURSDAY- cardio/weights repeat from Tuesday
FRIDAY- Barre class
SATURDAY/SUNDAY- If Matt has the kids on the weekend I try to squeeze in a run when I can. I usually do 3 miles.
Here are 2 sample playlists I have listening to lately.
W O R K O U T G E A R F A V O R I T E S
I have this in the black and love it. I am going to order the white as well. Runs TTS, I have a small. It is perfect for tossing on over your workout clothes and cute with jeans and a long tank too.
I swear by these leggings and they are now out in a gorgeous gray color for Fall. I wear my black pair outside the gym too with sweaters and boots.
I love pullovers like this to toss on the way to the gym.
I have these in the black and wear them often. I love the back detail and the fact that they are high waisted. I love this camel color for fall.
This is the softest hoodie and currently 40% off.
Recently I splurged on a nice sports bra and it has made a huge difference. The support on this one is great and I love the mesh back. I wear a 6 in this style.
Perfect for the gym or lounging. Also comes in black.
I have been wearing these for the past year and love them. Light weight and great for all sorts of activities.
I love the idea of these for loungewear and running errands.
One of my favorite workout tanks. I love that it is looser fitting and the length is great.
Sometimes I like to pair regular tees with my leggings either for the gym or just to run around town. I always like an oversized fit like this tee.
This makes a great gym tote and also a great diaper bag as well. It is nylon so easy to wipe down.
I have a few of these glass water bottles and love them. This duo is a great price you save $27. You could even split it up and give half as a gift.
I love these to put in my water for extra greens and vitamins. I swear they give me more energy.
If I am just doing barre class sometimes I like to wear easy slip on shoes since you don’t wear shoes during class. These are now 50% off.
Always necessary in the morning. I am the worst about losing my sunglasses so I have been buying cheaper ones. These are only $12.
