Christmas Recap & A Workout
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
As we do every year, Christmas Eve we went to Mom's house to open presents, then Christmas morning my husband and I opened the presents we got for each other and from the in-laws, and then we went to my grandma's for the rest of day.
I wanted to stay on track with my workouts this week, but with the gym being closed on Christmas day, I decided to get in a lower body workout at home. All I used was a kettlebell and a pair of dumbbells. You really don't need a gym or a lot of equipment to get in a great workout!
Here's what I did in place of my regular leg day at the gym:
1)Bulgarian split squats w/dumbbells: 4x8
2a)Dumbbell squats: 3x12
2b)Kettlebell swings: 3x20
3)Single leg upper elevated hip thrusts: 3x12
4)Seated band abductions: 2x25
Finisher: Lsit hold on dumbbells, 4x12 seconds
+ 1 leg reverse lunge jumps, 3x8
My hamstrings are even a little sore today from the kettlebell swings! I'll do my heavy squats later this weekend at the gym.
So I've been hearing all about these sugar detoxes everyone is going to start now that the holidays are over. I mean, whatever ya gotta do, but for me, I just get right back on track with my normal meals, including my favorite lunch of eggs, chicken sausage, and roasted potatoes! I could never get tired of this meal!
I'll even be enjoying one more Christmas dinner this weekend, which means a few more yummy treats. ;)
Here are a few pics from Christmas:
Last Christmas was spent in the hospital, so this year we have so much to be grateful for. We are fortunate to have Mom here with us and to have a new addition to the family!
Best gift of all!
This man is my everything.
Christmas morning! Asher wanted to open presents, too!
