Happy middle-of-the-week! This week has been HOT here! We went on a run on Sunday, and we were definitely working up a sweat! Hope it is warming up by y’all. This is the best time of the year!
Anyways, we had asked you all for what you wanted to see for workout posts, and we got a lot of great topics, so thank you for all of your suggestions! Today, we will be sharing a booty workout + what vitamins we take!
So, first, for the booty workout: We typical work our butt out when we do our legs twice a week. You can dedicate an entire day to it if you really want to! PS- If you don’t know one of the exercises, just google it, and a video on youtube should show you the proper form!
As far as cardio goes, we usually stick to the stairmaster, if possible. The reason being that no matter what, you have to push yourself to keep moving, unlike other cardio equipment, where you can barely pedal or move slower, the starimaster will keep rotating and moving, so if you get lazy, you will fall off, haha. With that being said, though, you don’t have to go super fast! Especially if you’re just starting out, it can be daunting! In case you missed our tips for the stairmaster, check last week’s blog post!
We are loving these workout pieces below [click each item to shop it directly!]:
As far as supplements go, these are the ones we take on a regular basis. We don’t take a pre-workout or anything else, really, besides these! We do eat a ton of veggies, so we do get a lot of vitamins from food, but we like to supplement more, just to make sure we are getting enough!
These are what we take for each vitamin (click the link for the ones we use):
Lunch: Lunch at Dimassi’s Mediterranean Buffet. We eat here more times than we’d like to admit;) we always get a ton of salad and vegetables and their roasted chicken + hummus. It is all-you-can-eat, meaning we do eat A LOT of volume, but we only eat the salads and chicken, no fried or starchy items.
Snack: no snack this day because we ate a ton at lunch!
Dinner: We made roasted veggies in the oven and had half a roasted chicken from Central Market.
Dessert: chocolate protein mug cake (made in microwave) recipe HERE
Also, we got hungry and had some grilled chicken we had in the fridge + maybe some Halo Top Ice Cream;)
As far as cooking and meal prepping, we like to have some kind of protein prepped for the week, like grilled chicken or salmon baked in the oven. That way, we can just add it to salads or veggies for lunch or dinner in 5 minutes! Nobody wants to have to cook a full meal at 7PM after a long day!
This grilled lemon Mediterranean chicken salad looks DELISH! You all know how much we love mediterranean food, so this is totally up our alley!
