Gym Class Circuit Workout

Good morning!

Hope your Tuesday is running smoothly for you.  Mine is going to be another rushed day of running around like a headless chicken, so I’m going to run through the latest tidbits pretty quickly.  I haven’t posted since last Friday, so I’ll pick up from there.

Friday was Meredith’s teacher’s baby shower, which was a lot of fun and full of pink!  Baby Jenna will be born sometime within the next two months, and I know the expectant parents are thrilled to add to their growing clan.  I didn’t take any photos of the actual shower, because I didn’t know if everyone would appreciate being featured on my blog, but I took a picture of myself getting ready.  I’m still new at taking selfies, so excuse the giant, awkward hand in the picture(yep, I’m a dork):



Alrighty then, onto the weekend.  The weekend was actually pretty relaxing, mostly just some tidying up around the house and arranging a few play dates.  It did consist of a lot of food.  I will now insert the gratuitous foodie collage:



Did you notice those oh-so-delicious Shipley’s donuts thrown in there?  They are the jam.  Historical fact:  When I was around 8 yrs old, I could consume between 8-10 Shipley’s donuts in a sitting and still function as a normal child the rest of the day, oh, and not gain a single pound.  I was as thin as a rail.  However, nowadays, (for instance this past weekend) I can consume 2 donuts and feel like a bloated whale the rest of the day, not wanting to do much and not being hungry for lunch or dinner.  Seriously.  I had to force myself to eat lunch and dinner.  Those donuts sat like a rock in my stomach all day.  Ugh.  They are tasty though!  I just can’t eat more than one as a treat, or I’ll pay dearly for it…

Moving on.  Breakfast this morning looked like this:


A blueberry bagel half, with melted cheese and a fried egg on top- mmmmm.  I love a good bagelwich!  Oh, and of course, a hot mug of coffee on the side.  Must. Have. Caffeine.

Now for my circuit workout!  Yesterday, after breakfast, I squeezed in a quick 30 minute circuit workout- that I made up myself!  I wanted something fun, entertaining and kind of elementary-gym-style ( I guess after running up to Meredith’s school 50 million times this past week has made me nostalgic).    I incorporated Meredith’s hula hoop and jump rope, but you can easily mimic those movements without the equipment.  I actually marched/jogged in place for 10 minutes before the circuit to warm up, and completed 4 rounds of movements for an easier/beginner workout.  That’s the beauty of circuits, you can customize them to your fitness needs and likings.  This one left my muscles sore this morning; it’s for real ya’ll!                   So without further ado, here’s the Gym Class Circuit Workout!  Enjoy and let me know what you think.  I’m always open to suggestions!

I’m off to do a little yoga, and get started on the rest of my day.  We are celebrating Meredith’s birthday at school today, so I need to put together a little goodie for the class.  Enjoy your Tuesday!
