Trip to New Zealand!
Hey friends! I decided to make a separate travel blog to post about my travels. This year was New Zealand. I just got back yesterday so I'm working on each day with lots of pictures but I have to first two days posted about already.
This is my go-to program when I don't know what to do and when I still want results. My arms get CARVED when I follow this program as well as my legs. I do these as circuits - meaning I do one exercise and move onto the next completing all exercises and then repeat again for as many times as I can or have time for. Aim for 2-4 rounds depending on your fitness level and time.
This is a 4 day split and you can use it however fits your schedule: Day #1 - biceps, triceps, shouldersDay #2 - legs & absDay #3 - back, chest, shouldersDay #4 - plyo & abs
You can do this every day for 4 days on, 3 days off. You can do them every other day. Or you can just do it whenever you have time to do a workout! Some of the exercise do use a cable machine but you can easily swap them out for dumbbell or band exercises. Just make sure you're working the same muscles or muscle group.

Happy Wednesday!! Only 2 more days until the weekend! Time sure flies when you're constantly counting down to the weekend haha. I've become very busy recently with making plans during the week because I always feel so rushed on the weekend. As much as I like relaxing on week nights its also nice to get more done during the week.
As of Sunday I've stopped calorie counting. I have a good grasp on what is what and what I should be eating and it's obviously not working for me because I still don't have the defined tummy that I want. I did some consulting with my very informational cousin who has her degree in nutrition and I'm still eating too many carbs. I keep forgetting that bananas and apples are carbs! I'm going to finish the ones I have and start buying more frozen berries. Costco has awesome bags of frozen berries so I'll be making a trip there soon hopefully.
I haven't been able to fit in Insanity this week and yesterday I took a rest day. Tonig…
