Well Betty and I became official IL residents yesterday. Betty for the first time; me for the second. I did a slight review of the Rules of the Road Wednesday night and passed with 100% on my written test – phew!
And did you see my new header?
The lovely Maren put it together for me and I absolutely love it! She also designed some social media buttons (coming soon) and a TLSM ad for the Healthy Living Blogs website. You’ll probably see a few additional changes to the overall look of the blog over the next few weeks, so please be patient if there’s any weirdness – I’m trying to work out the kinks (and my tech skills only go so far).
Anyway, as you all know, today is Friday – Fitness Friday! I’ve had a great week of workouts mixed with active rest, which we’ll get to in a few. First I wanted to share an abdominal sequence I put together for one of the What’s Beautiful challenges. Who doesn’t want a strong core?
Now onto this week’s workouts:
After being home for nearly two weeks, it feels good to finally be getting into a fitness routine and feel like I’m finally starting to get into a groove.
How was your week of workouts? Any new exercises you’ve been enjoying?
Welcome back to the I-L! It’s a great time of year to be in Chicago!
Thanks! And I agree – I LOVE FALL!!!
NEXT WEEK I will remember that you’re doing this. I will also start tracking my workouts again as of next week anyway. 🙂
Also, I like how the new header brightens up your space. Your old header was dark, and this reflects your bright personality better.
That was exactly one of the goals of the new header! Now if only I can figure out how to make the black nav bar a different color…or find a more fitting theme…or make someone make me one…lol
The header looks fantastic!!
Great week of workouts too. Planks are the best. 🙂
I popped over last night and noticed your new header! Looks GREAT girlie! And nice week of workouts! I’ve still YET to get back into yoga like I keep saying I will, but I’ve been mixing it up this week with a good amount of cardio and weights! I bench pressed with two 25lb dumbbells last night for the FIRST time! I may or may not have looked around to see if anyone saw me and my badass-ness…they didn’t! 😉
HAHA!! I can totally see you doing that and it makes me SO happy! (p.s. i’d totally do it too! 😉 )
My week of workouts was actually pretty good! I have been doing more yoga! 🙂 I love that oblique move!
Yay for more yoga! I’ve been trying to do more as well and get back into my yoga before bed habit.
