One of the main reasons I started my blog was to share my workouts and running stories with you. But, since I started blogging, I haven’t been able to share too much! I have been apart of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, and loving it! I started a new workout phase last week. Each phase lasts for 2 weeks before receiving more workouts, and let me just say, I have been sore all week!
This past week, the only thing keeping me motivated was knowing we check-in online with our workouts. I have really struggled finding any motivation to workout this past week, and I’m not sure why. My cardio workouts were less than stellar, when I did get to them. You know what, though? These things happen, and I’m ready to get an excellent week of workouts this week!
I usually take Sundays off, and this week was no different! On Monday, my mom and I headed out for a run, but decided against the wind, so I completed an elliptical workout. It was a HIIT one, which meant I was done fast. Seriously, no motivation. I also did a full body strength workout, that utilized supersets- meaning it kept my attention! Tuesday I ran for Boston with a 26.2 minute run. Wednesday called for another workout with supersets, and a ridiculous amount of squats! That left me sore for days. I’m not sure what cardio I was supposed to get in, but I didn’t. Thursday was a self declared rest day. I woke up with my back in immense pain, so I went back to bed. Aaron and I went for a walk that night, which stretched out my back and I felt a lot better! Friday was another full body workout, plus a 25 minute HIIT treadmill run. I would say Friday was my best day pushing myself this week. I was in a horrible mood Saturday morning, for no reason, and I knew I needed to sweat it out. I did my workout from last week, and it was no disappointment. I was so sweaty, and felt so accomplished!
I spent yesterday catching up on various projects I started, prepped my food for the week, and just relaxed. It felt amazing to have no set plan. Actually, I had no set plans at all this weekend. I was able to do whatever I wanted, and take as long as I needed, which is exactly what I did on Saturday! I headed out with no set agenda, and I really enjoyed all of my stops!
I’m sure I mentioned this once or twice on the blog before, but I LOVE pretzels. They are the one food I could probably live with for the rest of my life, and never tire of. Last year, I was introduced to Pretzel Crisps! Seriously, life changing. We have been buying the huge bags at Sams Club, and I could eat them all in one sitting if I didn’t stop myself. Wouldn’t you know this Friday happens to be National Pretzel Day?!

How was your week of workouts? What’s your favorite kind of pretzel? Are you a hard pretzel, or soft pretzel kind of person?
Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I simply love Pretzel Crisps, and enjoy all of their flavors! Being that I also love pretzels in general, National Pretzel Day is like the best thing ever!
