Impulse Buy + Workout Schedule

How is every one's weekend going so far?

Yesterday I made an impulse buy at the local health food store:

a $13 impulse buy to be exact.

I added a little to my oat bran this morning, but wasn't too impressed. Any suggestions?

Moving on to my workouts! Ideally, I workout 5-6 days a week. I like to do weight training 3 times a week and cardio 3 times a week.

Here is what my workouts looked like this week: Jan 2nd- Jan 8th:
Sunday: Off
Monday: Total Body Class
Tuesday: 45min Cardio + some Abs
Wednesday: Spin Class
Thursday: Total Body Class
Friday: Off
Saturday 8th: Total Body Class

The Total Body Class (Hard Core Total Body Class, to be exact) is pretty intense. It is similar to the Body Pump class that many of you love. There is actually a disclaimer in the description of the class stating that it is "not for the faint of heart." I can definitely attest to that! It is military-style, so you will get yelled at if you are out of sync with the rest of the class or for giving up before a set is over. This class pushes me to my limits both mentally and physically, which I love! The days that I weight train on my own I don't feel like I push myself as hard as this class does. When it comes to workouts, it's important to find workouts that you enjoy as well as workouts that will push your body and keep it guessing.

Have you tried coconut butter? What are your favorite ways to use it?

What is your favorite form of exercise? Do you like cardio more or weight training?

Any plans for this weekend?

Have a good Saturday!! xoxo


  1. Got to love impulse buys! I do that alot, woops! lol!

    I have coconut butter, I love it! I like to just use it and spread it on toast, it is so sweet!

    Exercise, I like strength training and HIIT for cardio!

    Happy Weekend! We are being bums over here all weekend! lol! xoxo

  2. I love that stuff, but boy is it $$! I tried making my own, which is still tough.
    I love a good combo of weight/cardio interval class. Hurts so good!

  3. I have found some of my favorite things through impulse buys! Great find! No special plans for the weekend, my goal is to get at least one good workout in though!

  4. I have ALWAYS wanted to try coconut butter - but I can't seem to find it! I think I might have to make my own :)

  5. Haha I did the same thing. I use coconut oil for everything and bought coconut butter (actually by accident) and tried it and didn't love it. I've since been putting it in smoothies where it adds a really nice flavour!!


  6. i have friends who've used it on toast. I don't like it though. Let us know what you find!
