How I worked Wednesday
I haven’t done a “how I worked Wednesday” post in quite some time, and as my training has shifted and progressed in a number of ways in the past few months I thought it was high time to show you how I’ve been breakin’ a sweat. I consider my training to be one of the best parts of my day almost every time I do it, and though I know only a few will get anything out of seeing how many reps I do of what lift, the ones who like it will be greatly intrigued.
Basically, I do this for the fitness dorks AKA the people like myself. You’re welcome, guys!
A note: recently it has come to my attention that some people are annoyed by healthy living bloggers, because what they put out into the world seems full of judgement. I know there are the #eatclean, #noexcuses, #teamnodaysoff type of fitness social media personalities, but I want to say here and now that I am not one of them. Everything I share is to let other people in to my process, should they be interested. I do not wish to glorify crossfit, olympic lifting, interval training, or running. I have no idea if what works for me works for you. If your preferred method of exercise is pilates and walking, I think that is fucking excellent. You can be annoyed that I try to make my meals look pretty and pick the perfect tea towel before I photograph, but please don’t be annoyed with the perception that I am saying you should do what I do. I’m not! I trust your judgement on your fitness and your life as much as I trust my judgement for my fitness and mine.
