Workin’ It Out Together June 30, 2011

Yesterday, Irving and I both got home at the same time and decided to jump right into a sweaty weight lifting session. He worked out with his xbox trainer and I did a routine along side him. I’m so excited that we can work out together. I waited 10 years for this! All it took was an xbox?!

Before we started, Irving tried the Prime Bar (The first part of the Gatorade GFit Series).

I tasted it, but honestly, didn’t really like it. They have a few different flavors and I’d be willing to maybe try one of the others. But he really liked it and it pumped him up for a workout.

I loosely followed this plan from How Sweet it Is. <—If you click over, how good does that cupcake look? OMG.

Irving was hogging the weights so I skipped those ones during the circuit. When he was done, I did a mini upper body routine that included triceps, biceps, shoulder press and lateral raises. Oh man, did I need this!

Warning: Sweaty picture ahead. Whoop!

They say a couple who works out together stays together, right?

I slept so well last night and today, my whole body feels like jello. =)

We had another boring, but relaxing day today. I spent the afternoon reading Twilight and relaxing while Irving watched some soccer games. I’m 250 pages in and I just can’t get enough. Ahhh, so good! Part of me doesn’t understand Bella’s fascination with Edward, and the other part of me is totally jealous that she gets to go out with him. hee hee. Congratulations, Kelley. You’re just like the millions of other girls around the world who drool over Team Edward (I haven’t really gotten to know Jacob yet, so I reserve the right to change “teams” later!).


Annnnyways, in other news, I convinced Irving to hang a bunch of pictures around our house today. It’s only been six years since we moved in. No biggie. heh! It feels so nice to have something on our walls now!

The first picture is really special because it was a gift from Irving’s grandfather. I had it framed for him for Valentine’s Day.

The second picture was a wedding gift, which we love because it looks like the lake that we got married on!

The third picture is a framed cross-stitch that my mom made for us. She worked really hard on it for almost three years, and we love it!

I did not play Your Fitness Evolved on the XBOX today (my legs are thanking me profusely for that!) But Irving did! I was a little jealous of his endorphin high all afternoon. But check this out, Gatorade has a new line of products called G Series Fit. There are three products, one each for before, during and after a workout.

I haven’t tried them yet, so I can’t give them a full review, but we bought them because 1.) They were all free on rebate at Walgreens today and 2.) The bottle unlocks new workouts on the xbox… let me explain.

You buy a G Series Fit bottle and hold it in your hand…

The XBox Kinect camera sees the product and releases exclusive content to you.

Pretty cool technology if you ask me!

Thanks, Gatorade!

Gatorade did not sponsor this post. But I did get the products free on Rebate and you can too! Check your Local Walgreens for more info!
