Getting Back into Health + Fitness Post-Wedding

Happy Friday loves! Hope you had a great week and have some fun weekend plans ahead. We have lots of family plans again this weekend so that will be super nice! Tonight, I definitely need a date night with the hubby that includes chips, queso and margs. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous so I just want to enjoy!

Today I just wanted to talk a little bit about my post-wedding fitness routine + diet because that has actually been a HUGE focus of mine the last month. I think it's fair to say that I pretty much took the entire month of July off from the gym + eating healthy because with my design class, our Cape Cod trip, NYC, and just a lot of other fun activities, it was hard to stay on track. I also just wanted a break because leading up to the wedding and even the few months after I was going at it pretty hard. However, after taking that time away I started feeling so BLAH again. Not because I was gaining weight but because going to the gym really helps with stress! It's also good for me to channel my energy into fitness versus spending money on clothes:) I know y'all feel me!

 I have cut down from 4 days at the gym to 3 just because it is getting a little busier at work and I want to be realistic. I find that 3 days is actually perfectly fine and I'm still achieving great results! I do usually supplement that 4th day with an at-home workout or going for a run. The breakdown is:
Day 1: 25 mins of HIIT cardio + Legs
Day 2: 25 mins of HIIT cardio + Upper Body
Day 3: 30 mins of HIIT cardio + Abs
Optional Day 4: Usually going for a jog, spin class, or yoga at home
I also just wanted to share some quick super healthy meal ideas because I feel like I have been doing SO well with avoiding eating out and sticking to a pretty clean diet.
Breakfast: Greek Yogurt + Granola + Berries OR some of these overnight oat recipes are SO good!
Lunch: Avocado Toast with either red pepper flakes or feta on Ezekial bread OR this salad=SO good
Night 1-Salmon with lemon + salt and pepper + roasted sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts
Night 2-Zoodles (pre-cut so its super easy!) + lean ground beef + marinara (no sugar added)
Night 3-This pesto chicken recipe is SO easy and yummy
Night 4-Tacos on whole wheat tortillas with ground turkey, pico, butter lettuce, salsa and avocado
Night 5-Quinoa bowls with avocado, black beans, cherry tomatoes, red onion and cilantro lime dressing. Sometimes I'll roast brussel sprouts and put these on top too!

Hope this gave you guys a little bit of inspo! I always love reading about other blogger's fitness/diet routines just because I always need more ideas to stay motivated. Have a great weekend!

  4. Awesome plan! As easy as it is to slack off, I always start to feel it after a little while and feel SO much better after getting back on track. It truly is rewarding! You've reminded me how much I've missed salmon and quinoa, adding it to this week's shopping list <3

  12. I've just started to go back to the gym after about 2 months off during the end of my pregnancy up to now. I feel so incredibly weak and I'm STILL sore from last week's workout, lol! So, yes, this post is very inspiring, girl; you look incredible!
