Hello friends!

Another week of workouts come and gone. This week we both felt amazing during our workouts. And seriously love ending the long week with some yoga! Definitely going to continue that.


  Love my Strong is Sexy shirt from Raw Threads.

Monday – 5 minute #plankworkout + Cardio Kickoff workout from Amanda Russell.  We changed the intervals up a little – we set our Gymboss Interval Timer
16 rounds of 50/15 intervals. The workout was 8 different exercises (did them twice)

Tuesday – 8 minute #plankworkout + Tone It Up 30 workout. We did not do the running part of this workout, just the moves. We set our Gymboss Interval Timer
to 15 rounds of 60 seconds.  Workout was 5 different exercises (repeated 3 times)

We have been having a simple green protein smoothie after our workouts, and then a little later enjoy something like this –

Wednesday – 5 minute #plankworkout + Total body tabata workout from Blonde Ponytail. Set our Gymboss Interval Timer
for 8 rounds of 20/10 intervals, did this for all 5 exercises.  Used 8lbs dumbbells.

Thursday – 8 minute #plankworkout + Tone It Up foam workout. 6 different exercises 15 reps each using 8lbs weights when we could.

Michelle filmed a new #plankworkout, video will be up Monday. And enjoyed more chocolate protein chia cookies.


Friday: did yoga

Love the idea of yoga Fridays!

It is something that we know we need to do more of but for some reason find it difficult to do mentally. As we always think we need to do weights or HIIT workout.

But in reality we need yoga just as much!

Need to remember to exhale.

Take some time for ourselves in a different breathe, spiritual way through our yoga practice.

Saturday – Lori taking day off as she is attending a friend’s wedding, which it is an interesting setup. Wedding in morning. Reception at night. Anyone ever been to a morning wedding?

Michelle is at the beach for the next few days and enjoyed a little walk to watch the sunrise. An old pair of Mizuno shoes made for the perfect beach shoe.

Sunday – maybe more yoga, or walking, or maybe another day off. We shall see.

Now onto our favorite part – shout outs!

instagram love – (our instagram names – @purelylori @purelymichelle)

Stacie made our protein thin mints! Which we have been enjoying as a pre-workout snack this past week.

And Jessica thank you for this, both of us are so honored for being a fitness inspiration!

Caitlin shared some #plankworkout love on twitter, way to go girl!

Great sale going on over at raw threads! Great gift ideas for any runners in your family or group of friends. They will thank you 🙂

cute moments from Jax lately… he waits for Gary each morning (and sometimes during the day even though Gary at work).

Jax testing out his glow in the dark sparkly collar. And we always find the sunny spots in the yard to warm up in.

Got this new vegan waffle mix to try!

Anything fun or exciting happening in your life?

Good luck to all the runners who have a race today!

till next time,

I adore when you share your workouts( almost as much as your eats!), I am left with so many ideas for my own workouts & you seem to have a great, balanced approach to fitness.

Also the reader shout-outs are so sweet. It shows how much you appreciate you readers. I got so excited when you posted my comment, declaring my undying thin mint love, the other day:)!

We must have ESP. For real. We both started doing more yoga over the past two months and it’s awesome! I totally agree – it’s just an essential part of life once you get into it. 🙂 You both look amazing and are TOTAL fitness inspirations for sure. Love you!
