I made it to the gym 5 times this week! + a Sunday morning hike
Monday: Boot Camp class (1 hr)
Tuesday: Lower Body Blast class (1hr)
Wednesday: Took a day off
Thursday: 35 minutes on the treadmill (3.6 miles)
Friday: Spin class (30 min)
Saturday: 25 minutes on the treadmill (2.5 miles)
Sunday: Hike (2 hrs)
Turns out getting a routine down can be pretty helpful for making sure I get in my gym time. I've actually really enjoyed mixing up my work outs, since I can get bored pretty easily. The boot camp and lower body blast classes are really awesome for pushing me to my limits, and making sure I get a nice long work out in (I am usually dying and looking prettyy cute after these classes). I've never been much of a runner, so the treadmill has been a really great challenge for me. This Thursday I ran a straight 5K without stopping, and I have NEVER been able to go that far. I got so excited that I took a picture:
Yeah I know, I'm cool like that. The spin class was challenging and a great way to start my Friday morning (it was at 6AM!), and the hike was BEAUTIFUL. I definitely need to start hiking more to really appreciate how lucky I am to be living in gorgeous Santa Barbara.

Aaand to the more challenging part of my week, the 80/20 rule. I would say this week I did more of a 60/40 rule, so I've got a bit of improving to do. I really like my carbs, so cutting down on breads, rices and pastas is proving to be a bit of a challenge. But I know I can do it, so this week my goal is to focus on making healthier eating options. I plan on cooking up some healthy meals, so expect a post including some recipes next Monday (you know they'll be quick and easy if I'm cooking them!)
I hope everyone had a good weekend! I certainly did, but more on that to come.
