Hey Gym,

Nice to see you AGAIN! 🙂

I decided to change things up a bit today and hit up a strength training class at the GYM! I must say…..I’m a total GYM LOVER! Seriously, the entire atmosphere makes me sooo happy! A gal pal and I took a full-body strength class which was similar to Body Pump (Gold’s Gym) only it lacked a bit in the music department (Gold’s Gym seriously has a FABULOUS music coordinator!)

 The last time I went to a class….pssshh! Ages ago and it didn’t last long because, well our hubbies had a hard time with two newborn babes to care after for an entire hour & a half or so, so needless to say, our previous gym class bubble was bursted when we realized our newborn babies love their mommies too much to let them get their ZUMBA on at the gym: hence the need to workout en la casa (at home). 😉

I’d say we gave these two cuties plenty of time to warm up to their daddy-o’s!!

Of course since it had been forever since I did a complete strength training routine, my arms felt like noodles afterwards but that post-workout burn felt SOOO GOOD! My fitness goals as of lately have been mostly to tone up; I’m at a happy weight, ideally I would like to decrease my body fat but I’m not overly preoccupied with percentages right now since I’m still breastfeeding. {Speaking of BFing, did you know Danica McKeller (Winnie from Wonder Years), breastfed her son until he was 2 & 1/2? SO inspiring!}

Along with today’s strength training workout, my workouts this week have been really good and I’ve been feeling GREAT!!

Mon: 5 minute plank

Tues: 30 min 3 mile(hard) intervals

Wed: 3o min 3 mile (easier) intervals

Thurs: Strictly Strength Class

Fri: Not sure yet, maybe a long distance run?

This week I also signed up to do Giselle’s 3-week Summer Ready Challenge and have been doing these exercises as well & I can already feel it in my tummy. 🙂

Along with getting in some great workouts, I’ve been enjoying more clean eats with salad beasts like this:

{spinach & romaine lettuce with turkey breast, carrots, broccoli, avocado, tomatoes, blueberries, a side cottage cheese and a smear of hummus!}

Speaking of avocado…I’ve kind of developed an avocado obsession and have been eating it with everything! I wonder if my skin will turn greeeen!? haha! Anything your LOVING lately!?

Have you taken any group classes? If so, which is your favorite?

Well, I’m off to watch my team play and hope they get the job done tonight!

  1. I just can’t get into avocado…any tips to turn me into an an avocado amore?

    • I would say try it with something that you already like, for me it was Fajitas. I slowly started integrating it into some of my other favorite foods and now I like it with everything!! Oh & sprinkle a dash of salt & pepper to give it more flavor! Hope that helps! 🙂

  2. Alicia, I’ve always loved your posts for the reason that you just sound so happy, and so content with life. I love it! You truly are setting an incredible example for your little guy even if he’s not old enough to completely understand yet ❤
