Sunday Sweats - PRs and Awesome Shirts

Sunday Sweats Theme Inspired by Holly

I'm doing a selfie-a-day project inspired by the book I'm reading, Radical Self Love, and this was Thursday's picture.  Howe awesome is it that my "Lift Like a Girl" t-shirt arrived the day after I hit my longtime goal of squatting my bodyweight?!

Anyway, here's the workouts...

Weekly Workouts

Monday - Strength Training | DTT: 30 Min

Bench.  I attempted 95 pounds (a PR), but I only got 2 unassisted and 3 more with my dad helping, so I'm not sure I can count this.  Next time!

Tuesday - Strength Training | DTT: 30 Min

Tired today and not sure why.  I went ahead and did a lighter arm workout with dumbbell curls and tris.  Stomach started hurting in the afternoon and by the time I got home I was ready to sleep.  On the plus side, 10.5 hours of sleep never hurt anyone!

Wednesday - Strength Training, Biking | DTT: 90 Min

SQUATTED MY BODYWEIGHT!!!  This has been my goal since about the beginning of this year, so this is pretty damn exciting.  And actually, full disclosure here, I squatted a bit more since I did my heaviest weight ever - 205 lbs - and my current weight is 187.  Now if I could just get my bench up to even half my bodyweight... :P

I had trouble getting started after work, but finally hopped on the stationary bike for a solid hour of biking.  And then was so inspired that I had to clean and rearrange things instead of go to bed a reasonable hour, but hey.  You can't win 'em all.

Thursday - Pilates Inspired HIIT| DTT: 30 Min

I swapped my workouts with my mom to Thursday to give me accountability for at least one workout for a full 4 days of the week.  We tried something new and sweated up a storm with jump squats, push ups, jumping jacks, and something that reminded me of DDR.

Friday - Nada

Rest day.

Saturday - Biking | DTT: 30 Min

Grand intentions turned into DGAF and an easy 30 minute bike ride.  No guilt.

Sunday - Yoga| DTT: 45 Min

One of our regular pilates videos.

Weekly Total Time: 4 hr 15 min

Thoughts Going Into Next Week

I'm cutting myself some slack.  After weeks of being unhappy and upset about my leg issues I've arrived at a weird place where I simply could not care less.  Half marathon next weekend?  Eh, whatevs.  I'll probably just do the 5K.

How did your workouts go this week?  What were your "DGAF" moments?

  1. Congrats on the lifting goal, that is awesome!!!!!!!!

  2. You squatted your body weight! Thats pretty good! You did really good this week. Also - love today's pic :)

  3. Yay! You are doing so great girl! Love that selfie! I FINALLY got back on my mat today. It felt SO good!

  4. So proud of you for hitting that weight! You rock, girl. And again, i LOVE THAT SHIRT! :) Good for you for knowing where your body's at and not pushing it. Don't put yourself through the rigamarole that is a half marathon if you're not in a good position for it. Enjoy the 5k though :)

  5. love the selfie a day project ;) and that shirt is fabulous! damn girl, squatting your body weight is flipping awesome! congrats!
    my DGAF moments.. well, the whole of last week was a DGAF moment haha.


    I'm so proud of you for your squat PR. Girl, no words. That is sooooooo amazing. And it makes me sad for myself. I fell off the wagon a month ago but I'm going back this Monday.


Talk to me! I'm friendly. I won't bite.
