So this week has been an insane week (for life in general), but I’ve had some great highlights & plot twists that I wanted to share!
- THANK YOU to all who read my Stitch Fix reviews! + news
Something funny happened after I wrote the last one….I got an email from Stitch Fix offering to waive the $20 styling fee if I were to try one more box of clothes. I decided to go for it for two reasons: 1) I always appreciate excellent customer service, and 2) I wanted to blog about it and share it with my readers. 🙂
The box is set to arrive next week, so stay tuned!
- My new workout program has me kicking and screaming. [well…maybe just kicking.]
I started a new workout program called Core de Force. So far, I describe the program as this: “you kick, you punch, you feel like a badass. Then you’re sore the day afterward.” It’s been awesome. It was quite easy to motivate myself to kick and punch as therapy this week, but for the sake of peace, I’ll leave it at that. 😉
Anyways, the workout is segmented into 3-minute rounds. You work as hard as you can until you hear the bell (similar to a 3-minute boxing round). I feel like a badass, but I look like a child. Eh, I’ll take what I can get. It’s just another reason why I love exercising at home!
On today’s episode of “Amanda works out at home”…. the best word to describe the workout is “humbling”. Wait for it…and you’ll see my attempt at this reverse tricep dip. #coredeforce #contest #wellitried #humblebeginnings #isweariminshape #iswearimathletic #iswearimafitnessinstructor #squareone #triceps #saturdaymorning
- Yelling “plot twist!” on my nutrition plan
So my nutrition plan for this workout program is quite easy to follow. There are no unreasonable food restrictions, and plenty of really healthy food to eat. But I’ve had some low points this week…let’s call them “stress eating”. But I’ve learned that we don’t live in a vacuum. It’s ridiculous to think that we will all eat perfectly. Life happens, and I’m moving past it.
- Skinny Pop is awesome!
So a few weeks back, I wrote a blog entry about healthy lunch food on-the-go. I included Skinny Pop as an example, and I received an email saying that they are sending me a gift as a “thank you!” Yay! 🙂
- FINALLY putting away things in our house
My new project? Finally unpacking all of the things into our new house. I plan to do some major de-cluttering, and some home projects myself! Here’s hoping I don’t put a huge hole in a wall….
Ever want some little home tips for yourself? See what I’m up to on my Pinterest page!
Anyways, tgif. This week’s almost over, folks. Stay positive, be an example of peace and love for others, and let’s keep moving.
