A workout a day...

...keeps the doctor away? I like to think so :)

Well...I had every intention of posting about Barcelona today except I didn't edit any of the pictures. I got the post ready. I have most of the text. No pictures. No pictures = Big Problem. Y'all don't really care about reading about what I did in Barcelona, you want to see the pictures! Don't worry, I don't blame y'all :)

So instead I thought I'd give you an update on June's monthly challenge since we're already over halfway through June! {Remember I switched June & July's challenges!} This month's challenge was to do a different type of workout every day for a minimum of 15 minutes! Here's what I've got so far!

June 1: 30 minutes on the elliptical
June 2: Walking straight uphill and around Park Guell {seriously just wait until you see the pictures tomorrow...not easy!}
June 3: 15 min Bike, 5 min Rowing, 15 min running + kettle bell series {see below}
June 4: Walking around Pompeii and Sorrento
June 5: Walking everywhere in Rome
June 6: Power walking and lunging through the airport...trust me it counts
June 7: Circuit workout with my dad at the park
June 8: 15 cardio drills, 1 minute each
June 9: 2 mile run + sprints and drills 4 x around middle school track
June 10: 2 mile walk with Maggie
June 11: Summer Shape Up Plan day 1
June 12: Summer Shape Up Plan day 2 + kettle bell series
June 13: 4.25 mile walk + 40 min kickball game
June 14: 25 min yoga {yogadownload.com Detox Flow}
June 15: 3.25 mile run
June 16: 4 mile run
June 17: 30 min PT session, 1 hour boot camp

Post workout June 12th...I ran later :)

The plan for today is elliptical, core and stretching because this girl is sore from yesterday! Yikes!

Here's the kettlebell circuit that I made up while I was working out on the cruise ship! I really liked it, so I did it again last week. I figured if I like something enough to repeat it, then y'all may like it as well!

Feel free to pin!

Now you may not have noticed in your address bar, but hopefully you can see above that I finally bought my own domain! 2 1/2 years after starting this little blog of mine, I finally took the plunge! I decided to stick with a generic domain since I may eventually change the name of the blog. Who knows though...

Back on track...I've been loving my June challenge and it really helps me to actually workout every single day even if it's just a longer walk with Maggie or 15 minutes of drills. Staying fit is all about being active right?

Is anyone else participating in the June challenge?
Do you have any recommendations of workouts that I should try?!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,


  1. I am far too lazy so just working out 4-5 days a week is impressive for me lol! Way to go on working out every day, you're so awesome like that! :)

    Oh and congrats on buying the new domain!

  2. Get it lady!! I wish I could have just HALF your motivation. I am such a slacker when it comes to working out. Help me, help me!!

  3. You are awesome!!! Great job!!!!!!

  4. I think my body would hate me if I did a true workout every day. That said, I do think I should start at least walking a few miles on my "off" days.

    My current challenge is 30 miles in 30 days. I have a feeling I'll blow past the 30 miles soon. :)

  5. I am so glad I found you! It's like you read my mind on all things fitness and working out related! I am definitely going to be incorporating your new kettlebell workout into my routine! That looks tough, but flipping fantastic!!

  6. Wow, you are awesome! I need to keep these in mind come the fall when I am ready to get my body back after baby!

  7. Hey girl! Thanks so much for linking up with us! I am happy to be your newest follower! I will have to try that Kettle bell workout soon!


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
