  • Deadlifts –Β 5 sets of 3 reps – Heavy as can maintain form
  • Windshield Wipers – 3 sets of 10 each side – 65#
  • Knee Ups – Body Weight

COVERGIRL Product Review

I love getting a box in the mail for review, especially when it’s from COVERGIRL!!

image

First up, COVERGIRL Plumpify blast PRO mascara. Talk about adding some lash volume! I will definitely be buying this moving forward!!!

image

And second, COVERGIRL Oh Sugar vitamin infused lip balm. Not only is it pretty and subtle, it smells and tastes wonderful.

image

Fun!!! I love these products!!

Sunday Prep

image

An excellent morning workout, a half hour in the pool and 3 miles on the dreadmill with some Nuun and Honey Stinger keeping me hydrated & fueled.

imageimage

Some Nuun All Day with some lemon for the remainder of the day.

image

Love these silly, sweet girls.

image

And dinner with my amazing family. I’m beyond blessed.

image

I started this book tonight, and I totally needed it. More to come on this.

image

And finally, next week’s workouts.

Gear Geek Box #3

What a fun box this month!

image

First up, a Orange Mud Wrap! This will be super amazing for changing in and out of gear for brick workouts or to just cover my car seat after a swim in the river or stinky Mann Lake!!! It can either hook onto you or zip into a hood to hang in the car! It’s quite nice, long and fluffy. Plus, IT’S PINK!!

image

Then, Zensah compression leg sleeves. They feel incredible. Compression helps stabilize muscles, prevent injuries and target shin splints.

image

And my favorite, Hickies! Tying my shoes makes me crazy! These are the easy, slip-on, super cute way around that. Plus, it’ll improve your transition times!

image

And this handy little Sigma Rear Brake Light, is something I had never thought about but am super excited about!!!

image

And today’s accountability pic! Swim and lift this morning!!
