Looking back over the week, here's how my workouts went!

On Saturday morning, Brayden and I set out on a 5 mile run. Hitting those 5 miles was so hard because I started a bit late and it as already in the "feels like" 90's by 8 a.m. Hello, can visit us here anytime!

We made it, though!

Monday's Orangetheory was a partner workout and although it was fun, I still had a hard time keeping my heart rate up because it recovers so quickly. This was a partner workout from start to finish and that was a first for me!

Speaking of Orangetheory, about 6 weeks ago, I noticed that I had gained a bit of weight since starting my workouts with them. Yes, you definitely gain muscle which I've noticed, but I wasn't happy with the way my clothes were fitting. My appetite increased as expected and instead of choosing "good" foods, I most always went for the not so great options. So, I decided that I wasn't working hard for nothing and took a good look at everything I was eating. Now here I am, down 12 pounds and feeling great! I don't deny myself a treat every now and then, but it's not as much as it was before. It's amazing what a little healthier eating and exercise will do for you!

Back to my workouts for the week...

On Tuesday, my friend Melissa and I set out for a 3 mile walk. It was 7 p.m. and I couldn't figure out why I was having such a hard time breathing. Well, it was a freaking "feels like" 106 degrees. Hello!

On Wednesday afternoon, I headed over for my 2nd Orangetheory workout of the week. I was early and treadmill cards were still available, so I decided to try one. Y'all...I picked the right day for starting on the treadmill first, that's for sure.

This workout consisted of all legs with mini bands on the weight floor and I was SO happy I did that last. My entire lower half was on fire when I left!

The run to row felt great, too. I was able to keep my heart rate up and  made it pretty far down the block before time was called!

I do love me some Orangetheory!

As far as other happenings this week, how adorable is this picture of Brayden with my parents?! 

I mean, really. PRECIOUS!

He also had a meet and greet with his new Mother's Day Out teacher on Thursday. He was so excited to see his little friends again!

This class has "big boy" chairs now vs the little table inserts they were sitting in before. It's hard to believe how fast he's growing up!

Well, that's about it for my week! Stay tuned to instagram for updates from our week! We will be in Disney Springs today followed by boarding the Disney Fantasy tomorrow. I plan on running throughout the week on the ship with the Castaway Cay 5K on Friday. I'll also try to post updates to instagram once the cruise begins when I can.

Have a great week! See ya real soon!
