Fit Fab Friday: Back to School Edition!

Hi friends!!  It’s been a while since my last Fit Fab Friday- it’s been a little crazy around here with all the trips I’ve been taking lately!

But I had a fabulous time and I’m back to a normal schedule (well, I will be next week when school starts!). 

Last week was very interesting workout-wise.  I only had one scheduled workout.  The roomies and I went to the gym at the hotel and I hopped on the treadmill and did 3 miles.  Other than that we did an incredible amount of walking!  We walked miles and miles every day- especially in New York. (I actually lost 3 lbs on this trip- that’s how much we walked!)

But now that I’m back to a normal-ish schedule I need to get back to my normal workouts!  So I planned my workouts ahead of time this week.  Doing this is sometimes hit or miss for me since I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of gal, but since I just got a new planner I’m kind of excited about planning stuff out ahead of time.

Something new I’m doing this week is adding strength training!  I know, I know…  I say I’m going to do this all the time, but I got a new book and I’m excited to try some of the workouts and I really really do need to start doing some strength training since I’m not working a job anymore that requires heavy lifting!


Anyone used this book?  I figure if I have a plan of attack for strength training when I go into the gym I will actually get something done instead of wandering around to random machines.

So here’s what this week looks like…

Today (Friday): 2 mile run

Saturday: Kickboxing (my favorite thing ever!)

Sunday: Walk at the park with the hubby and the pups

Monday: Kickboxing

Tuesday: Strength training at the gym (I don’t have my actual workout planned out yet- that’s my project for this afternoon!)

Wednesday: 3 mile run

Thursday: Strength training at the gym


What do we think about my plan of attack?  What kind of workouts are you doing this week(I’m always looking for ideas!)?




  1. My friend Kelsey ( did the NROLFW book last summer and I think she was pretty happy with the results!

  2. I’ve never read that book, but I’ve heard great things about it. You’ll have to let me know how you like it. I’m still fledging when it comes to strength training.

  3. Hip hop dance classsssss FTW. 🙂 My goal is to add in Core Fusion segments for strength training. They are only ten minutes and I have everything I need but I just never do them. Aiming for 3-6 segments over the next week!

  4. 3 pounds? That is awesome! Maybe we should have a standing gym tuesdays after lab?

  5. I’ve been seeing that book pop up all over the place! Let me know how you like it! Exercise for me this week has been a lot of cuddles and minimal movement from the couch 🙂

  6. You lost three pounds while on your trip? I’m so horribly jealous!

    Good luck with strength training. I used to do it three times a week, but I began slacking when running took over. My main suggestion? Pushups. Then in November we can have a proper competition. 🙂

  7. I LOVE THAT BOOK! So easy to follow and you’ll show up the guys at the gym with all the awesome moves.
