Legs and Booty | Monday Workout

February is going to come with a lot of different challenges (no added sugar, 5 workouts a week, two being core-centric, on top of everything I’m already trying to achieve). I measured myself today – something I completely forgot to do on Friday – and I weighed myself, unfortunately after I had already drank half of my day’s worth of water so it may have been skewed.

I’m not too pleased with the results, but I know I gave myself a break on our vacation, so I’m trying to see that as “happy” weight. HOWEVER, it’s crunch time… literally! No, not literally because it’s lower body day, but I mean it’s time to kick this FABuary off. The first of this week’s five workouts is my bootylicious workout with more moves, as follows (with pictures below):

Clamshells 3×10 (each side)
Donkey kicks 3×10 (each side)
Inner Thigh Lifts 3×15 (each side)
Bridge Thrusts 3×20
Grasshoppers 3×12

My lower body is sore as hell, but it’ll all pay off eventually. Three months from now, I’ll be glad I kept going.

A Bootylicious Body-Weight Workout

Good magical morning everyone! I have been trying my best to stay on my feet since I finished my first cup of coffee this morning (it’s 10:41am now), and this is a habit I’ve been working on building for quite some time! It helps my back, but of course after standing and walking and bending all day, my knees start to twinge a little).

I had the rest of Shadow & Bone to finish before I recorded my book review, which meant this morning called for a little bookish workout to start the day! (And yes, I’m pretty stoked to hear that Netflix is making a GrishaVerse show!!!)

I have the misfortune of having kind of a square butt. Kinda annoying, right? So I want to shape these cheeks and build some nice round glutes! (Unlike my last workout post, I’m definitely not subjecting you guys to a photo of my butt lol)

Today’s workout consisted of:

3×8 Squats (feet placed parallel to hips)
3×12 Standing Leg Lifts (forward, side, and back, per leg)
3×8 Plie Squats
3×10 Walking Lunges

After that, my lower body was BEAT! Breakfast was an avocado and 2 hard boiled eggs with some salt and pepper. A nice little vegetarian breakfast to end a workout and start the rest of the day!

Let’s go be awesome, folks!
