Mixing it Up

Happy Thursday!
Is it spring yet? I mean really?

So I am back with how I am making myself healthier to share what I did this week. Last week I shared how I started boot camp (which was actually canceled yesterday BUT being the dedicated group we are & since school is canceled we rescheduled for today--so if the roads are fair I am heading out to do that this morning before the gym tonight)

gettin' shit done.

Anyway so I was a very gungho running girl. I was building my speed and stamina. That's all i did pretty much for cardio. Just run run run run.

Which is great. I am going to continue to run a lot.

But i need to mix it up. I feel like i have hit a mini plateau and I want to mix it up for my bod to get over this plateau. I have been doing stairs on Thursdays for a few months but i know that isn't enough.

My plan is to do stairs two days a week and uphill walk another day. I have been putting the treadmill on the highest incline, 15, and then walking from anywhere from a 3.8-4.1 for 45 minutes. It is a HUGE  calorie burner plus so so so so good for those glutes. Then I will run for the other 3 days. (I have been trying to make it to the gym 6 days a week, some weeks I only make it 5).

That is my plan anyway. Getting out of my comfort zone of running (which WOAHHHHH when did running become a comfort zone, that is still insane to me) is needed and I know it. I gotta trust this process and try new things to see what works for me!

Here is to continuing to kill it and making changes!


  1. My life changed when I stopped pounding the pavement and found the other wonderful ways to gain sweat, stamina and strength!!

  2. Love that you get to go to those boot camp classes and there's a great group of you guys motivating each other! I like to mix up my workouts too, I do a mix of Barre classes, biking outside, yoga, and at home workouts like Jillian Michaels and Rush Fit :)


I appreciate all your sweet comments, they truly make my day. I do my very best to respond to everyone who leaves a comment!

have a wonderful day :)
