This morning I was up at the lovely hour of 5:45 am for a Bodypump blast. I decided to bust out the gun show this morning and bump it up on the weights. Followed it up with an 3 mile easy run on the Star Trac.
During BP we did a burst of plyometric cardio during the lunge track called straddle jumps. Have you ever done these? They really pump up your heart rate. I am always a little intimidated doing these but feels good when it’s done!
After the workout I came home and made a huge salad for lunch. Spinach, maters, lots of feta and a boiled egg on the side for some protein. I am always craving lots of protein after getting my lift on!
In other news, I wanted to tell you about a sponsored campaign that I’m pretty pumped to be a part of. It’s all about empowering women to reach their goals and push their limits in health and fitness. It’s truly something I am passionate about! I know you guys are just as passionate.
Here are the deets-
Declare a goal. Then show us how it’s done.
Together we’re redefining the female athlete by setting epic goals and pushing past where we’ve ever been and where we thought we could go. Join us. Set your own personal goal. Then document your journey by posting videos and photos that tell your story from start to victory.
We’ll continuously post challenges for you. But that’s just the beginning. Show us your journey. Show us what makes your story the one that stands out from the rest. If you meet your goal, set a new one. Make it even bigger. Prove to everyone, and yourself, that you have more than what it takes.
Every week we’ll give away Under Armour Swag Bags full of gear to women who are seriously getting it. We’ll also feature profiles on our home page and in the “Top Performers” section of women who are really setting an example for all of us.
After 8 weeks, we’ll announce the 10 finalists who’ve documented the most impressive, motivated, monumental stories.
Winners will be announced mid-July.
Three winners will be flown to Costa Rica to attend a four-day yoga and surf retreat. In addition to the lessons led by world-class instructors, winners will be treated to transformative massages, spa treatments and healthy, locally-sourced meals prepared by personal chefs. All while staying in plush accommodations looking out at the ocean. A retreat worthy of the women who earn it.
Super cool, right? Get involved!!
