Workout Wednesday

I'm starting a new series called Workout Wednesdays where I will post a new workout each week. I'm having my 2nd husband Jack make me a button and I'm hoping to turn it into a link up if you guys would like to share a weekly workout too. I think it would be a fun way to change things up and learn some new stuff! Leave me a love note if you're into that idea :)

Today's workout is a leg and arm routine.


Sorry my video isn't great quality, iPhones can only do so much :)




Usually on mornings that I'm in charge of my own workouts {aka no classes} I make up a circuit and do cardio mixed with weights.


1. Bicep curls with a 35 pound bar.
2. Dead Lifts with a 25 pound weight. {hold the weight and bend to your toes and back up keeping your legs straight}
3. Upper Back {bent over slightly pull weights up as you squeeze your shoulder blades together}
4. Dreaded Stairmaster level 8 for 10 - 15 minutes increasing the level every 5 minutes

Do  1-3 for one minutes and repeat 3x's

My favorite workout shirts from Abundant Heart are having a year anniversary sale and you can get 15% off with the code "Celebrate" until Friday the 26th!


Also Mama Laughlin and I have started a Facebook page for you gals local to Dallas, it's called MaMeg :) We did this to make it easier to plan meet ups and get togethers for races, so if you live in or near Dallas and would like to get in on the fun hop on over and introduce yourself!

Enough about me me me me......

This is Amanda from My Very Own Modern Family! She has, count them, FIVE daughters. That alone would drive me to the mad house!!! You have GOT to read her A-Ha post, it may be the best 'I finally figured out I needed to lose weight' story ever. Plus, I'm pretty sure every time I click on her blog she gets skinner :)



Happy Hump Day!

  1. Sometimes I forget Blogger is on east coast time and you are not because I freak out that you posted at 2:26 a.m. Texas time and Georgia time are different!


    I'd LOVE a Workout Wednesday post! And I'd link up too!

  2. I love the Workout Wednesday idea. I really like that you do a video showing the different moves you have listed for the workout. I didn't know half of them so this really helped. Can't wait to have baby number three so I can start working out! YOu motivate me Meg, Thank YOU!

  7. Thanks so much for the shout-out, you are too sweet! I love the idea of workout Wednesdays. Much better than weigh-in Wednesdays since I broke up with my scale a while back. Plus, I know I could always use new ideas to get moving.

  8. Hi Megan! I have been following you & Mama for a few months and love your blogs! They inspire me to keep working at it even at 42! :P

    My husband and I like to work out together and we do this fun work out to mix it up 1-2 times a month. You pick 4 activities. We chose pull-ups (machine or not), push ups, squats-we use weight, and burpees. Get a deck of cards and assign an activity to each suit. As you turn over the cards you do that number of that activity. It is TOUGH. We try not to take a lot of time in between and time ourselves...trying to beat our time from previous. Just an idea!

  9. Yes! I love that you're now sharing your workouts on a weekly basis - they will be frequently pinned to my Fitness board on Pinterest! THANK YOU!!

  12. I love Workout Wednesday! Thank you for posting your workouts because I usually write a list and take that workout to the gym with me. I don't always have as much time but I try to create a smaller list of circuits from the different ones you list and go from there. It really helps when I am getting bored with my current workout and want to throw in something new :)

  15. I love this idea. Keep the workouts coming. I print out the workouts I find on line and keep them in a folder that I bring to the gym. I pull out which ever one I want to do that day and it has been working out great for me.

  18. I love this idea! I need something to help me get going! I am slacking big time....I just can't seem to get myself to work out. The eating better and no soda is going great, though! Thanks for being my inspiration! I know I should just take a trip to Texas and you can be my personal trainer for a week!!! ;)

  23. I love the idea of Workout Wednesday! I don't have a gym membership and my treadmill died on me 2 weeks ago (and our darn weather is all over the place for me to go running everyday), so I need ideas so I can keep going! I've lost 28lbs in less than 3 months and I can't stop now!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm excited for the new workout ideas! I just wish I could find cute workout shirts in plus size(grr)! I know I'll get to the other sizes eventually but I've got a lot to lose and I'm not patient.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the idea of Workout Wednesdays! I purposely take Tuesday and Thursday off from the gym because there aren't any classes I like to go to during the time I'm there. These free weight routines are great for those days! Thanks for sharing :-) one of these days I will actually be able to do 10 push-ups the non-modified way, I'm busy gettin' stronger!

  29. I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago and, thought I should probably finally leave a comment. I absolutely love your writing style! I've never struggled with a major weight issue, but you've definitely been a great inspiration for getting healthy and active, and I love your exercise tips!
