Bolder Shoulders | Workout

If you know me, you probably know that I love working my shoulders. I’ve worked hard to shape them the past several months, and my hope is that after a decent amount of fat loss, they’ll look even more badass!

Now, because my chronic pain has been flaring up lately, I went with 5 absolutely basic moves and repeated each move thrice.

Check it out:

  • Shoulder press 20lb 3×8
  • V-Raises 10lbs 3×8
  • Front lift to overhead 10lb 3×8
  • Bent dumbbell fly 20lb 3×6
  • Floor shoulder press (legit can’t remember the name of it) 20lb 3×10

Today’s recovery is basically chillin’ with my Next Level Basic book on my life-changing back support pillow, which is super cute, if I do say so myself. Which I do.

Seriously, I love Stassi and her growth throughout Pump Rules, but even more so how honest and unabashed her book is. Total female empowerment here!


Booty Workout!

What a day, what a day!

My youngest caught the stomach flu, my diet was thrown by the two slices of pizza I ate, and I managed to do loads of laundry. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but taking care of a vomiting, lethargic kiddo comes with a bunch of extra steps itself.

One of those steps was bribing him to eat crackers by letting him watch Barbie on my phone. That meant I had to handwrite my workout. I kinda like doing it that way! So here is the super intense booty (and a little ab) workout today:

I legit couldn’t remember the name of the last exercise but it’s a lower back and booty centered move that I love doing anytime I focus on glutes!

Happy Friday everyone, and I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!

Measure-In Monday | Week #3

I have some good news, and some bad news! Let’s start with the bad because why not?

Ok so if I haven’t mentioned it enough, my husband and I have finally signed a lease for a much bigger place, which means we’ve been in the process of packing. The only things not packed and/or already in the truck are bigger furniture pieces and the essentials. You know, bathroom stuff, food, some clothes.

Unfortunately I made the rookie mistake of packing away my tape measure… I know, I know. How could you, Raine? HOW??

Idk, mom brain, I guess?

But here comes the good news! I’ve lost .4 lbs since last week. So in a way, it’s still a measure in. It doesn’t seem like much but we’re going for slow and lasting results.

Anywho I’ve got a bit more to do here before we’re ready to dip out of this place so I’ll catch you guys next Monday!

Measure-In Monday | Week #2

Well, folks, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is I lost 2 and a half inches all over… the bad news is I didn’t reach my daily water intake last week, so this week, I’m sticking with that as my goal until I can manage an entire week without missing a day!

Last week was a trial, given the stuff going on with the house we’re currently in, and moving within the next week. It’s been stressful!

But my husband and I had our anniversary yesterday, so we went to this restaurant in the town we’re moving to. It was so good! I got this veggie filled cajun alfredo with blackened chicken, and my husband got a classic chicken fried steak. Our eldest ended up with this huge mac n cheese burger!

A few bites in and I was filled to the brim! Obviously I took the rest home for leftovers lol

This week is going to be heavy on the packing so I probably won’t upload my workouts, but I assure you, they are getting done! Until next time!
