Work It Wednesday: Week. 3 - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Work It Wednesday: Week. 3

Welcome, welcome, welcome to Week 3 of Work It Wednesday!  I started this linky party to keep myself and y'all motivated throughout the summer months.  I can't wait to read your posts too!

Summer comes with lots of grilling out for us!  Luckily my family (parents and brothers and sisters) also like to eat pretty healthily so this was our Father's Day spread. I am smack in the middle of the 24 day challenge so I am being very careful with what I am eating!

1. Watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, basil, and feta
2. Fresh, local shrimp
3. Grilled Chicken
4. Grilled Peaches, honey, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ommmmmg.  Eating healthy can be so yummy!

Strawberries and blueberries are a great snack when you are out and about like I was on this day.  I know if I go grocery shopping on an empty tummy that things are going to get ugly real fast :)

This is another favorite snack: Quakers rice cakes, almond butter, and strawberry slices.  Heaven, I tell ya!

Now to the working out part....I love to sweat (which is a good thing because it just plain nasty in Charleston right now.).   My fitbit flex is providing some extra motivation to get moving.  Since I am nursing Smith, it's nice to get out and moving and not feel like I am stuck in the recliner ALL ding dong day!

I have left some hand weights in my garage so as soon as I finish my morning walk with Smith I can sneak in some reps.  I am 5 weeks postpartum so I am still keeping it pretty light and doing mostly body weight exercises like squats, lunges, etc.   Today Emmie joined me.  She loves to do burpees (I know, she's weird) and jog around the garage.

I pretty much wear workout clothes all day long because: 1. That's what fits right now 2. It's summer (yay!)  3.  I like to sneak in small walks/workout sessions whenever I get a chance.

  1. Yum! We love grilled food and would do it all year if weather permitted. I think it's hysterical that Emmie loves burpees! What kind of exercises are you doing? I'm 4 weeks post c-section, and I'm scared of overdoing it since I'm not sure what's okay and what's not. Any tips?

  2. Your pictures are making me hungry. It looks delicious.
