The Life of Tori + workout

Hello Cupcakes,

I wanted to catch you up on the life of Tori. 

Sunday I drove back to grad school from my hometown. It was such a beautiful day, I couldn't help but snap a few pictures. It only takes me about an hour and a half to get back, so the drive usually goes pretty fast. I like to always have snacks with me whenever I am traveling. This time I brought  Go Chomps with me. This is their new flavor called Crankin' Cran. I absolutely love hot things and let me tell you what... this sucker was SPICY! If you love hot things you need to try this. I mentioned more about Go Chomps in this blog post: Friday Favorites . There is also a link if you are interested in purchasing some delicious protein packed snack sticks.  

Here is another beautiful shot from my road trip back to school. The sky was so blue & I couldn't get over it!
I don't know about you guys, but I love sweating during my workout. It makes me feel like I really accomplished something. I put some Sweet Sweat on my abdominal area and went to do some cardio at the rec center. I completed 45 minutes on the stair climber & 15 minutes on the elliptical. I am currently doing 1 hour of cardio 3 days a week in between my lifting days.  
Today I did a back and ab workout I would like to share with you all!

Do 5 sets of each Superset (when two exercises are done in a row without a break). Supersets allow you to build endurance while lifting and also help you sweat more!

Superset 1:
-cable rows X 10
-assisted pull ups X 5-8

Superset 2:
-cable lat pull downs X 10
-cable straight arm pull downs X 10 (slow & lighter weight)

Superset 3:
-back extensions x 10 ( with weight)
-high cable rows x 10 (heavy weight- use back muscles)

Superset 4
-hanging leg raises (knees to stomach) with dumbbell between feet (I used 10 lbs)
-dumbbell rows x 10 each side
-weighted oblique crunches X 10 each side
I finished with doing 2 Youtube videos:

I hope you find this helpful and.... Happy Hump Day!!

Later taters xoxo

    1. Today is a lower calorie day for me and it seems to be going okay. I don't think I can keep it up very long. I like intuitive eating better. Overall, it's a good approach I think. I will see how I feel about it in a few more days

  2. It is good that you are aware and being honest that you aren't a fan of it. Everyone is different, I am proud that you are trying new things! :)
