#fitnessfriday: progress and wardrobe overhaul

Welcome back lovelies to this week's #fitnessfriday...on Saturday. Oops. I'm sure you've noticed that I'm still struggling to have fun and blog while working killer overtime to fatten up my wallet a bit. But that's ok. Remember my new "work hard play hard" motto? It's in full effect and I couldn't be happier about it. And working a lot isn't really all bad because extra money. But worry not guys, happy days are ahead - I have some awesome stuff planned in the next couple of weeks so it's better that I focus now. And while my blog has been a little neglected, I'm proud to say that I absolutely crushed the #fitnessfriday goals I set this week which were:

"4 Ballet Beautiful workouts and 2 yoga sessions. Plan workout wardrobe overhaul because it's well overdue. Drink 2 liters of water a day and take my supplements (D3, multivitamin and Viviscal) daily."

Ok, if I'm perfectly honest, I did ZERO yoga this week. So that was a goal fail. But, I did 5 Ballet Beautiful workouts drank 2 liters of water each day AND took my supplements which is a huge deal because I'm terrible with pills. This week's goal is 5 BB sessions, 2 yoga (for reals this time), 2 cardio, 2L water and supplements daily. Even though I skipped the yoga this week, I feel so much more stretched out and balanced because of all the ballet. 

I did some fitness wardrobe overhaul reconnaissance this week and apparently Athleta is something I should be paying attention to now. I still stand by my Nike girl proclamation but I received a lovely email from Athleta that was surprisingly filled with lots of tempting stuff. I have to go through my currently overflowing workout wear stash to get rid of most of it (the too old, too worn, too thick or just plain ugly) and go stock up on pieces like these ASAP:

For your sampling pleasure, here's a 4 minute version of the 15 minute arm routines I've been doing.

If you made it through that, you'll understand why the swan arms are now haunting me in my sleep. Last night I had the weirdest dream about...my arms being super defined. Yep, that's right. I couldn't make this stuff up guys, I just hope it was a sign of things to come!
