Weekly Moves and Grooves XXVII + Recent Eats

Two more weeks until I’m not a college freshman anymore!

It’s humorous to think about how fast the year went, but I won’t go on about how sentimental it is to see time pass so quickly. Instead, I’ll keep this intro short and sweet and get to this week’s moves and grooves!

I’m also sharing some of my delicious recent eats that haven’t made it to the blog yet. I don’t know about you, but I just like looking at food pictures. My Pinterest, my Instagram, my Facebook, my blog— 95.78% food photos. It creeps me out when people say “food porn,” but I guess that’s accurate…? Pleasure in looking at food photos?

Guatever, I’ll just drop the issue. Enjoy!

weekly moves and grooves

Sunday

Rest

Monday

outdoor leg workout

I forget the exact exercises I did, but it was a total of 30 rounds of 30 seconds work: 10 seconds rest, so it took exactly 20 minutes. All I remember is that there were a lot of jumps and plyometrics that left me sore the next day!

Tuesday

100 burpee challenge

In 7:40. It was tough this week!

Wednesday

outdoor circuit workout

My goodness, I am digging the outdoors these days. It’s still pretty chilly here in Boston despite it almost being May, but that makes for the perfect temperature when you’re working up a sweat!

I did 7 rounds of:

This took about 35 minutes, and I was pooped at the end.

Thursday

Rest

Friday

dynamic warmup + leg workout

It had been a while since I had gone to the gym since the nice weather just calls for moving and grooving outdoors. But I was feelin’ the gym on Friday!

To warmup, I did 3 rounds of:

  • 5 burpees
  • 5 pushups to side plank right
  • 5 pushups to side plank left
  • 15 KB swings
  • 20 air squats

Then the leg workout:

  • 5×8 Bulgarian split squats (35#) // 16 jump lunges between each set
  • 1×8, 2×6, 2×5 hamstring curls (100#) // 20 squat jumps between each set
  • 1×8, 4×5 trap bar deadlifts (135#) // 8 box jumps between each set
  • 3×20 hamstring ball curls // 30 side jump lunges between each set

I walked much more slowly than normal on Saturday.

Active rest

And now onto the recent eats! Disclaimer: the epic amount of salads I’ve been eating is due to the fact that I discovered $185 of dining points left on my account that I must use before the end of the semester. Thus, I have been buying salads at my favorite salad bar ever, which are pricey, so they’ll use up the cash quickly. I’ve also been inviting my brother to eat with me very often 🙂

So tell me:

Did you do fun things outside this week?

What is the best carb you ate this week? Mine is a tie between the roasted garlic bread and the biscuit with honey butter.

  2. Yum, yum yum! I don’t know if I’ve eaten a reallyyyy good carb this week?! I mean, technically ice cream is carb-y…but no super delicious bread or anything. I’ll have to change that soon!

    All of your salads look so good!

  3. Life goes by so fast!!! It’s crazy! Your 100 burpee challenge makes me actually want to try them more!

    Hmmm the best carb I ate recently was a plain roll which sounds crazy but it was from an Amish restaurant that had homemade bread and it was so fresh and warm I looooved it!

  4. That garlic bread? *heart eye emoji x 10* YES. Actually, yes to everything. Can I have that salad place?!

    As usual, awesome workouts! Do you come up with them yourself? I always struggle with that!
