HIIT Workout 1/21/14

Here is the workout I (barely) completed today. HIIT workouts have been my favorite type of workouts to do for the past few months, and it’s because my body loves them (aka responds to them well & quickly). Well my body doesn’t love them while doing them, I should clarify.. haha. Last week I stuck with these types of workouts to get my body adjusted before starting back with weights, so this week I’m throwing in a few lifting days to target specific muscles. I think this is the schedule I wanna stick with for a while!

Warm-up- 1 mile run. I’ve been doing this as my warm-up to help increase my mile time (I hate running). I’ve always wanted to be that girl that loves to run (I mean don’t we all?!) but it’s just not gonna happen.. haha. I absolutely hate it. I thought by doing just a mile per day would be do able… so we’ll see how it goes!

Workout: 
10 burpees
8 kb windmills (abs) on each side
10 of this dumbbell complex: reverse fly, row, triceps kickback
15 leg raises
10 bulgarian split squat jumps (each side)
1 min plank
10 pull-ups- with the assisted machine- I’m not that jacked 😉
repeat 2x

If you have any questions about any specific exercises, just ask 🙂

Happy sweating!

  1. Hey – I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your blog and I've nominated you for the Liebster Award (kind of like a chain letter thing). It would be awesome if you continued it, but I understand if you don't – you should, however, check it out 🙂

    xo, Katie

  3. Oh my heck! Yes! I know what this is! My husband used to love this and he told me to try it but was hesitant because he was trying to get super buff and I thought that if I followed his routine I would just end up looking like a he/she! Now I am inclined to try it! Thanks girl! Totally bookmarking this!

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.

  • I haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??

A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.
