Friday Faves

Some of my favorite things of the week!

*Pool days!!!!
This summer girl survived the brutal winter...and now this will be my life for the next few months. :)

*Exercise: Cable pull-throughs-
 I have never done these consistently but just recently added them to the end of my leg day...and I am in love them! I have been supersetting them with monster walks, and ohhh- the booty burn! If you've never done them, you should! My glutes have been so sore the last couple weeks either from these, or all the lunges I did during my workout!

*Protein "Ice cream"-
I love smoothies that are so thick you have to eat them with a spoon and seriously taste like ice cream. I used frozen bananas this time...and it was soooooo good!

And last night I had my Phase8 ice cream that I haven't had since last summer. Forgot how good it was!

*This song-
 "Fix My Eyes" by For King & Country.  Listen to it and try not to sing it for the rest of the day! It's a good song to have stuck in your head. :)

*This Bible verse-
Something we all could probably work on! I know I need to be better at this!

*These Blogs:
I don't read as many blogs as I used to, but I thought I'd share a few of the ones that I still follow every now and then:
Sohee Fit
Powerhouse Fit Foodie
Girls Gone Strong
Beauty Lies In Strength
Lift Like A Girl
Sweat Like a Pig

...And flexing with my husband. :)
Happy Flex Friday!

  2. Thank you for sharing my blog - you know you're one of my favourites! I love to hate pull throughs - back when I injured my glute in February, it was after doing these (among other things!) so I'm always wary of overdoing the glute work in a single session these days.

    1. Thanks!
      Oh, really? I've been doing a lot more glute focused exercises in my workouts now. But it's really been making my back and hip flexor pain so much better!
