#FitnessFriday – Let’s Just Be Honest

#FitnessFriday Weekly Workout Recap


Let me put it this way I didn’t want to work out every day this week and truth be told I didn’t work out every day.  Wednesday I slept in because I was just exhausted because I stayed up too late.  I AM happy to report that I did workout Monday, Tuesday (sort of), Thursday and Friday so this week wasn’t a total bust!

Let me share with you what I did but before I do, did you sign up for our “Beat The Bulge” DietBet challenge yet?  If not, why not?  It starts Tuesday, August 18, 2015 and we have a lot of support planned.  We are providing a month-long workout plan, exercise schedule, daily clean eating prompts and a bunch of encouragement from your hostesses Sheila of The Frugal Exerciser and myself so we hope you join us.

You can easily register at http://dietbet.com/femmefitale and the bet is $35.  You win your money back plus a portion of the pot when you meet your weight loss goal of losing 4% of your beginning body weight by the end of the challenge which lasts a month.  YOU GOT THIS!

Beat the Bulge DietBet Challenge

As an extra incentive we are giving away prizes to the individuals who invite the most people who actually sign up.  That person will win either a workout band set by Workout Bands or my Infusion Water Bottle with Drink Tracker.

I felt strong on Monday’s run with Black Girl’s Run and the weather was breezy and excellent.  I always enjoy my runs with BGR! Baltimore.



Tuesday was sort of a bust.  I had a chance to work out at home so I ran for 1 mile on the treadmill as a warm up and then went to workout with my online bootcamp and it only showed 2 minutes of the warm up and then nothing.  I tried and tried but the video uploaded wasn’t the full-length one so I had to improvise and ended up doing a Kiqplan workout (review coming soon) which was not what I had planned but it got the job done.


I slept in until 6:30 am and it felt GOOD!


I got to workout with my personal trainer (did I tell you this is her last month working at my gym?)  This is the workout we did and it was challenging but a GREAT workout.

I had another wonderful 3.3 mile run with BGR! Baltimore.  I t was very chilly out and I wore no sleeves (what was I thinking) but the fact I made it out was GOOD because I was tired again and had thoughts of staying in the bed.  🙂  My time wasn’t the best but the point was to get active.  That is exactly what I did.

That was my workout for the week and I didn’t feature it here but I made some pretty delicious healthy meals this past week too!  I also drank a whole lot of water.

    Sometimes we need to switch it up and rest. At least you got back out there and kept it moving. Great job!
