Put Some New Shoes On

Time to check in! Last week I asked you all if you’d commit to 30 minutes of fitness each day; did you get it in? My week looked a little something like this:

  • Monday: 45 mins cardio + an old Best Body Bootcamp circuit
  • Tuesday: 4 bursts of 10 – 15 min workouts throughout the day
  • Wednesday: 30 mins cardio + an old Best Body Bootcamp circuit
  • Thursday: 30 mins cardio + quick strength & bosu fun

    I need a new photographer.. 😉

  • Friday: 30 mins cardio + TIU workout
  • Saturday: 1 hour spin + 1 hour barre [<– at Truve.. it was awesome!]
  • Sunday: 30 min walk through Tilden Botanical Garden

I’m making the same commitment this week and I hope you will too!

For my workouts this week, I broke out my new ASICS GEL-Fit Sana shoes. It’s funny; I’ve been putting these shoes on the mannequins at work for months now and would check the sizes to see if they’d fit me. When I got the opportunity to review the shoes from a FitFluential campaign, I was pretty excited. They’re super light and flexible; the shoe actually adapts and supports your foot with the inner lining  from the heel to the forefoot, while providing a barefoot-like sensation. I’ve never had a shoe like this before but I’m a fan.

Plus, they match my bosu perfectly! [No really.. I need a new photographer.]

I also love the versatility of these shoes. I wore them multiple times at the gym and then again when we went for our walk outside. I get the need for sport-specific shoes, but with limited apartment space, I’m a huge fan of multi-purpose! Plus [a big plus!], the GEL-Fit Sana shoes are just $80 and come in 6 different colors so you can choose if you want to go bold or keep it subtle.

Now on the commitment end of things, I’m also keeping up with my meal planning; personally I just feel better when I eat better and I’m sure you do too.

Weekly Meal Plan

Sunday – Flank steak lettuce-wrapped tacos with peppers, onion, corn, & avocado
MondayOne-pot paprika chicken thighs
TuesdaySweet, sticky garlic hoisin chicken with roasted broccoli
Wednesday30-minute healthy kickin’ cajun chicken and rice
Thursday – Leftovers
Friday – Out!
Saturday – Leftovers

So now that I have my workouts and meals planned out for the week, it’s time to get my new kicks on and get moving.

Link Love #62

Yesterday. Was. Great. I slept like a freaking rock and had a nice, relaxing morning.. didn’t even eat breakfast until 11! I also took a trip to Wegmans with my parents. We bought almost the entire store haha! And the best part of my day was going to visit my grandparents and my little Jilly bean. They were quick visits but it was so nice to see them all again and I’m looking forward to getting to spend more time with everyone over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures, but I’m hoping to have plenty after Thanksgiving! And with that, back to family time.. enjoy the links!
