At no one’s fault but my own, the weather derailed my workout plan last night {okay, okay…I didn’t check it before mapping out my plan of attack..rookie mistake}.  In addition to regularly visiting the gym, I’ve also been pretty great about distance running 3-4 times a week.  A problem I’ve been struggling with the past few months.  Last night it poured the rain and to be honest, running five miles on the treadmill was the last thing I wanted to do, so I rearranged my schedule and spent some time indoors with the Tone It Up girls.

Love these babes.

Like I said, I have been running a lot again lately and although I know that how you recover is just as important as how you workout…I’m not a big “stretcher” {yikes!…hence why I had to purchase a Foam Roller and MELT Balls}.  I decided to take last night to do some circuits and focus on stretching/taking a “personal” workout day.

Here are the TIU videos that I covered:

Kettletoning {personal fav}

HIIT Training {this is a great one to wake up 15 minutes earlier for before you hop in the shower!}

Bikini Abs {the reason why I’m sore this morning}

And then wrap it up with the Foam Roller Routine

Once I was done I made dinner for Jimmy and myself– sauteed brussels sprouts and lemon pesto chicken. Very simple, very tasty, and a very nice way to make sure I’m cleaning out the fridge before Christmas break {we’re down to the basics here, people}.

Bluuugghhhh, I hate the awesomely horrible fluorescent lighting in our kitchen…oh well, the food still tasted great!

I even went through the MELT Foot Treatment while I was food prepping {aka chopping/sauteing brussels sprouts and waiting for the chicken to bake}.  It definitely required some extra brain power moving my hands and feet simultaneously {hopefully that makes sense…you know, like when you move you hand counter-clockwise and your foot clockwise?  It’s difficult.  Near impossible}.

What did you have for dinner last night?  What do you do when the weather messes up your workout plan?
