Hi guys! I’m super excited about my post today. My hubby was awesome enough to follow me around at the gym and take some pictures of me doing my normal workout routine, and I will happily be sharing them with you today. Plus I’ll be showing you what my favorite post-workout snack is!
Did I feel awkward having pictures taken of myself at the gym? Yep. Plus the gym was PACKED. But I did it for you guys, lol! I personally love seeing what exercises people do at the gym. It was so foreign to me before I started going regularly. I had no clue what the machines even did. So I wanted to give you an inside look at my workout routine AND my awesome post-workout snack!
So when I go to the gym I usually begin with some cardio. I start out with the stair climber because well, there’s no science to it, I do the workout I loathe the most first to get it out of the way! I do the stair climber for 15 minutes at speed 7.
Then, I hit the elliptical where I do another 15-20 minutes of cardio. Making sure I have AT LEAST 30 minutes of cardio is a rule of thumb I go by every time I’m at the gym. Once my elliptical workout is done, I go work out my legs a bit.
I love the Inner/Outer thigh leg machine because it works both parts on one machine! You just have to adjust it 😉
For the inner thighs I do 1 set of 15, followed by 15 pulses at 50lbs. Then repeat 2 more times. For the outer thighs, I do the same. Don’t forget the pulses!!! That’s where you get a good burn.
To tone the booty, I use this “Lying Leg Curl” Machine. I usually do 3 sets of 12 at 35 lbs. If I’m feeling especially strong, I’ll do 40 lbs.
I do some hanging leg lifts to work my core, 3 sets of 10. If I’m feeling in the mood, I will also do the ab roll-up machine. But that is rare. Those machines never really did much for me..
I then move on to some arm workouts.
My arm workouts usually consist of three sets of 12 at a weight I’m comfortable with, but is still tough.
After these machines I like do some cooling down on the treadmill.
I walk at an incline of 10 at 3.5 for 10 minutes. Then run at a 5.5-6 for 10 minutes. Then cool down for about a minute. And that’s my workout!!

My routines change from time to time and I’ll mix up which machines I use, but if I don’t want to think too much, this is the routine I like to use.
After my workouts I like to go home and have a post workout snack. I recently stumbled upon Odwalla and I am hooked! Not only does Odwalla provide great-tasting nutrition in their products, they are also made with high-quality, non GMO ingredients, with no sugar added!
I purchased a couple of protein smoothies recently on my trip to Vons. They have so many different flavors to choose from! Odwalla delivers a wide variety of 100% juices and smoothies, protein and almondmilk shakes that support the on-the-go snacking occasion.
Vons even have fresh cut fruit right around the corner which is exactly what I crave after hitting the gym!! And right now at Vons you can save $1 on your next purchase of in-store fresh cut fruit when you buy any TWO (2) Odwalla 15.2 fl. oz. (You’ll receive a print out coupon at the register.). Offer ends 6/27/17. Pretty cool right? I grabbed some cut up pineapple and headed home to get my snack on.
These Odwalla products are a perfect on-the-go solution to those of us who are trying to make smart, healthy snack choices. You can nourish in no time with the great-tasting benefits of Odwalla. I try my hardest to make good choices when it comes to nutrition and Odwalla helps me do that time and time again.
