My Arms Are Going To Be Sore

Happy Thursday! I feel like this week just flew by, anyone else? Have a great day πŸ™‚

Wednesday morning started off like any other. I woke up to a text from my sister Megan saying she met someone who lives behind Alex’s parents house. She goes to school in South Carolina and Alex’s hometown is pretty small so we were both shocked by this! For breakfast, I made another smoothie and scrambled egg. Instead of a frozen banana I used one that’s been on the counter ripening. It was nice because the smoothie blended quicker but wasn’t very thick so I think I’ll add ice next time to (hopefully) thicken it up.

One of my goals for the past few weeks has been to include bodyweight strength training exercises. I always write my runs down in my planner and never don’t do them so I wrote down the strength training workouts I want to do. Since I do not belong to a gym or own any dumbbells, I have to rely solely on my body to gain strength. I decided to do Julie’s 21-15-9 workout. She put together 6 different exercises that work your whole body and decreases the amount of reps to do each time. I love workouts like this since I mentally feel like if I can get through the highest number of reps then it gets easier. My arms were getting sore about 15 minutes after I finished this workout.

When I finished, I decided to read a bit before dinner. I was pretty hungry and snacked on a peach while doing so. Well not during since I can’t seem to eat a peach without getting juice all over my face but you get what I mean πŸ˜‰

Alex and I were talking about what we wanted to do last night. We decided to go seeΒ “The Hitman’s Bodyguard”Β 30 minutes before the movie began. Luckily the theater is close to our apartment and wasn’t crowded so we made it just in time. If you like action, comedy, love stories then go see this movie! I often find that movie trailers spoiler all of the funny portions of movies but not this one. I was laughing for so much. If you liked “Deadpool” then I think you would like Ryan Reynold’s character in this movie as well. Plus who doesn’t like Samuel L. Jackson? Alex and I have known each other a little over 11 months and this is the first time we’ve actually seen a movie in theaters which is crazy!

The good thing about seeing a movie at 6:30 pm (and having popcorn for dinner) is that we still had some time to relax at home before bed. I spent the hour or so before getting into bed foam rolling and getting ready for work.

Question of the day: What’s your favorite bodyweight exercise or workout? I’m in need of some ideas to incorporateΒ into my routine!Β

  1. That peach looks delicious!
    I really like deadlifts, planks, bird dogs, and plie squats. Oh, and step ups! I prefer working my legs way more than my arms!
    Have a good day!


    1. It was so good! I’m glad I have two more in the fridge πŸ™‚
      I should work on my planks. I’m so bad at them it’s terrible! I never knew bird dogs is what that exercise was called but I will definitely work on adding those in. Thanks, you too!


    1. Definitely go see it! I enjoyed it a lot and so did my boyfriend. I actually just tried a peach about a month ago and I’ve been buying a few every time they’re on sale now. I love them!

      Have a great day Julie πŸ™‚


  2. I love decreasing rep workouts like that, it does make the whole workout seem more doable. Also, I am jealous of your popcorn dinner lol, I love movie theater popcorn. Hope you have a great day!


  3. Hey girl! That movie date sounds like it was a blast. Alsoooo I am now currently craving a peach, hmm wonder why?! Hahha. I loveee Insanity. It takes like every ounce of motivation to actually get started, but I have the best workouts from it. And I’m a cardio junkie, so running is basically my go to. Have you done any youtube Cassey Ho workouts? I loveeee her! They always kick my buttt!


    1. Hey girl! I just ate a peach and it was tasty lol. I’ve never tried Insanity but some people I know who have done it says it’s pretty intense. I love to run, I just did 7 miles this morning. It’s so funny you mention Cassey Ho! I just subscribed to her channel and saw a core workout that looks awesome so I’ll probably give it a try in the next few weeks. Thanks so much for your workout suggestions. Have a great Saturday πŸ™‚

  4. I feel ya on getting peach juice everywhere when I eat them, haha. I just can’t not be messy with fruit like that! Jimmy and I used to go to the movies a lot when we were first dating, but now we go like once or twice a year. I do always enjoy going to see kid’s movies. I don’t know why, but they make me happy!

    Favorite body weight exercise: push ups!


    1. I ate another peach today and got a little on my shirt. Luckily it didn’t stain it but I’m so messy with peaches. Maybe I should try to cut them next time but that also seems messy so who knows. Movies in theaters are so expensive but it’s fun every once in a while. Girl I love kids movies! My favorite movie is Toy Story πŸ™‚

      Is it bad I can’t do a real push up and have to do modified ones even at 22 years old?!
