Ultimate Booty Workouts - Phase 2 Recap, Results, and Review



I'm really not ready for it to be the last day of March. Excuse me while I have a bit of a freakout...

Seriously, where did the month go?! 

Oh well, it went. I'm just glad Spring is here. This mama needs some sunshine! Anyway, on to my Ultimate Booty Phase 2 discussion:

Recap
This was my planned workout schedule for March. Lots of people have
asked where I print these calendars. I print them from imom.
At first I wasn't sure, but I loved having this many rest days scheduled. I did add in a couple of extra days of cardio in the month, but it was nice to have that flexibility. I also found my not quite up to par post-baby body needed the extra recovery time. Two words: sore muscles.

I really enjoyed this month's workout. Possibly even more than last month...maybe. I loved the new moves, the intensity, and the addition of the HIIT at the end. For me it was sprints on the treadmill.



All in all, my workouts were great. I used my 10 lb weights and am ready to progress to my 15's for most moves. Super excited about that! I haven't seen my 15 lb weights in over a year. Oh yes, and I burned an average of 350 calories per workout. Say what?! Awesome.



My food was better this month. Still working on portions, but definitely more mindful of it. A couple examples of dinners:


Grass-fed steak with asparagus and white sweet potato.
Paleo taco salad.

Results
Upon completing Phase 2 I am definitely feeling stronger and am excited to be seeing a difference in the mirror as well. PROGRESS! After the long back and forth, round and round I've been putting myself through post-baby I cannot tell you how excited I am to be making progress. I also notice my posture seems better.

I'm off to find my 15 and 20 lb weights. Now, where on earth did my pregnant self stuff them...
