Street to Sweat #PROOF

I thought I might do something fun today and show you my Street to Sweat clothes. And as you can tell, I take terrible self portraits.


Dress - Banana Republic
Cardigan - Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes - Madden Girl via DSW

Cap - Nike
Top - C9 Champion from Target
Shorts - C9 Champion from Target
Shoes - Brooks Ghost 3 (dead running shoes)

As you can see, I hit the gym for my workout today. I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical then got in back and shoulders and a very short tabata workout. I went with 3 sets of 8 reps unless noted.

SS#1
Underhand barbell row
Standing shoulder press

SS#2
Pullovers
Lateral raise

SS#3
Double-arm rows
Front raises

SS#4
Low back extensions - 10 reps
Incline rear delt flyes

For the tabata, I just chose 4 exercises that I repeated as a circuit twice through to give me 1 round. I repeated twice for a total of 10 minutes. You do each exercise 20 seconds followed by 10 second rest then move direction to the next exercise.

Kettlebell swings
Kettlebell summo squat with upright pull
Kettlebell figure 8's
Kettlebell swing into a squat and overhead press (general idea came from Lisa Balash, but I added the overhead press)

Rather than drag out the post when I don't really have any exciting recipe or meal to post, I'll end this now. I am planning to hit the grocery store this evening though. So back to regularly scheduled cooking soon! Which lately means grilling ;-)

Daily To-Enjoy List

  • Sunshine
  • Lots of fresh veggies re-stocked
  • Good workout
