Week in Review + Summer Salad Recipe

Week 4 is in the books!  I feel like I had another great week and I am looking forward to starting week 5.  I will post my next 4 weeks of workouts tomorrow, so stop back for those workouts.  I am getting into a groove and a routine with my workouts.  At first it was hard to get out of bed at 6:30, but now it is habit and I love having my workouts done before my day starts.
Here is what my week looked like:
Monday- Chest, arms and interval cardio on treadmill
Tuesday- Jillian Michaels Kickboxing- 40 minutes
Wednesday- Back, shoulders and cardio
Thursday- My HIIT Workout
Friday- Legs
Saturday- Jillian Michaels Kickboxing- 40 minutes
Sunday- REST
 My eating was pretty spot on all week too.  I am not tracking because I am only eating real whole foods.  I did enjoy my cheat meal on Friday night and it was awesome!  But I got back into the clean groove on Saturday morning with a workout.
How did your week go?  Did you get your workouts in?

I am excited for this week to come, I am trying Aerial yoga on Tuesday and will make sure to post pictures and a post all about it!
Original recipe here
In honor of Labor Day tomorrow and all the parties that will be going on, I wanted to share a simple summer salad that is light and refreshing.  Take it to any party to share and make extra to have on hand for the week.
Tomato, Basil and Feta Salad
6 Roma Tomatoes Sliced
1 cucumber chopped
3 green onions chopped
1.4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons feta cheese
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl toss together all ingredients, season to taste with salt and pepper.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!  

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks Laura! I'm making it for our BBQ tomorrow!

  3. I agree with Laura. The salad looks delicious! Great workout week! How do you like JM kickboxing?

    1. Thanks Jill! I am in a groove with my routine and I love it! I love all of Jillian's workout DVDs I have almost all of them and I rotate them in to my week for variety. The Kickboxing is hardcore and gives you 3 different workouts to choose from.
