Gearing up for day 2 of our challenge. already, a few of our challengers have posted their workouts! yay!
.
here’s a little clip of yesterday’s chest/tricep lift and #hiit session. .
i added a #tempo run while my hubby and his buddy did day 1 too later in the evening. i almost chickened out because it started raining right when i was heading out but i went back in for another layer and pushed through. so glad i did. but then again, is there ever a workout you regret? .
today we crank out back & biceps and maybe a little spin later to keep my endurance in check. ❤️ .
happy tuesday! go get your workout in and come back to check in! #accountabilityworks .

Yesterday comment 10 star 73

Day 1 of our #8weekchallenge is today and already we’ve had so many check ins on workouts done for the day! i didn’t think i could feel this excited about this, but i am!💃🏻
.
i’m looking forward to getting my workout in “mid-morning” and checking back with everyone else.
.
i started mapping out my training schedule for 2019 and realized that the start of #ironman703training will overlap with the end of this challenge! 😳 haha. .
but it’s totally cool because this program is only 4 workouts a week which means, i’ll still be able to squeeze in my swims, runs & bikes without feeling like i’m overdoing it. plus i will be so much stronger by then! 💪🏼
.
this year, i set out to get back into #triathlon after a 3 year break (mainly due to injury & foot surgery). my group challenges up until early this summer motivated me to do so. i didn’t set out for #ironman703 and quite frankly it was the #olympictriathlon distance that scared me most. but i felt that i needed to take the momentum from the sprint tri where i actually placed 3rd in my ag to push myself to the next distance. that race was epic in so many ways! i am proudest of that accomplishment because i had kept from even trying it for years out of fear. once you cross a hurdle like that, the natural thing to do for me was to just move the measuring stick, sign up for #ironmanwaco703 - i’m so glad i didn’t chicken out! .
so now i’m setting my intentions on what #medalmonday will look like at the end of 2019.
#anythingispossible 👊🏼 .
what goals do you have left for 2018? any goals already set for 2019? never too early to get your mind wrapped around it to make it happen!
happy monday all...off to get my workout in! 👊🏼💪🏼

Rainy, overcast and cold outside but i’ve got all the feels about our 8 week challenge that starts tomorrow!

message me for details if you want to join...i’ve got a couple of slots open. .
our goal is to work together to stay on track through the holidays so our gift to ourselves will be to start 2019 strong 💪🏼 ! .

I’ve really lost my touch with editing skills but here’s just a glimpse of the preview workout for #liift4 that i’m coaching a group through starting monday. .
it’s not complicated. in fact, it’s quite simple and back to basics. .
.
but for me, it’s having a schedule and daily check in each day with a group that’s doing the same, that gets me going. seeing how excited they are to see changes in their bodies and daily habits is a total thrill! .

there is a misconception that lifting weight means bench pressing a bar with a half dozen plates (i’m looking at you, mom) - it is not. .
starting with your body weight and going from there...3, 5, 8, 10 lb dumbbells. do what you can and quickly you will see that you will move up because you’re getting stronger. with that comes the tone and definition that tons of cardio will not give you. .
i lost a lot of strength during triathlon training but i had such a great base before i started that i can, with 100% certainty, say that it is how i got through 16 weeks of training injury-free. .
this workout here was 20 minutes long, i am sore! it’s effective and i encourage you to give this routine a try. 3 rounds, 10 reps each. .

it’s #flexfriday after all 💪🏼😜 .
#trainsmarternotlonger .

.
oh yes, shorts & sports bra are from @carbon38 use valerievil20 for 20% off. the bike tank i got at the #ironmanwaco703 expo. i’ll find a similar and link it on #likeittoknowit & in my #amazonfashion page in my bio. 👍🏼

A real #tbt would be to show you what my b**t looked like before i lifted weights. but let’s just fast forward to now, age 44, mom of 4. i promise it looks way better now. .
i assure you ladies, you will not look like a dude for lifting a little weight. you will be stronger, you will burn more calories beyond your workout than oodles of time on the elliptical and you’ll feel sexy af. 🔥 .
don’t be afraid. i can help you.
my next group starts monday but i can help you outside of that too. 💪🏼 talk to me. it’s never too late to transform your body. .

Jumping from triathlon training and into an 8 week strength & hiit program means i’ll continue to be sweaty, often. 🤣 .
did you know that sweat has damaging effects to your skin?
.
yes! who knew?
.
i had to look into it myself! just some are loss of key minerals/vitamins, breakouts, increase in skins photo sensitivity (leads to premature aging 🙅🏻‍♀️), over dryness, irritation, redness & itching, collagen degeneration 😳
...okay, that’s enough. 😝
.

i’ve really enjoyed @freskincare especially because it’s made specifically for women who workout 🙋🏻‍♀️(and they smell so good too!). so much so that i’m happy to announce that i’m an ambassador! yay! .
i’ve been using their 123fré (hydrating sun screen + cleanser + serum) throughout my #ironmanwaco703 training and have loved it so i’m not about to stop now!
.
.
give it a try and get 15% using my code: vv - there’s a link in my bio. ***@freskincare products are also 100% #vegan & not tested on animals ❤️, not to mention, they plant an #argan tree for every set sold to both fight deforestation but also to empower women’s cooperatives & local communities that harvest argan oil in morocco. 👊🏼💪🏼🌲 .

I have to admit, riding again after #ironmanwaco703 i thought was going to be a little rough. it was so amazing to get outside and ride! 20 miles with a new riding buddy and quite possible an #ironman703texas #trainingpartner 🤔 .
so glad you’ve made it back to this side of the pond @rosannabennett ! .
looking forward to the next one!

I’m here to interrupt your daily fitness scroll to tell you to find a way to get out and vote! .
yes, i’m talking to you at work, in your college class, on the treadmill. go!!
.
be heard, there is so much on the line. .
did you know that in #texas and many other states, your employer is required to give you 2 hours to exercise this right? so...use it! go, go. go, now! .

1 week since #ironmanwaco703 and already i feel i’m ready for a schedule/plan to get on. i’ve been eating like i’m still burning 3000 calories a day 😳. and my activity level feels equivalent to slothlike. can’t wait til nov 12th!
.
in the mean time, i signed up for this @nycmarathon #virtual5k because even small goals keep me accountable. .
it was late but at least i had my partner in crime join in on the fun. swipe for before & afters...he’s a trooper. 😍
.
***family photo shoot update: complaining was minimal beforehand but they all did awesome at game time. sooo cute! can’t wait to see how they turn out! (it only cost us a couple #loldolls & #hotwheels 😂) .
.
.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
outfit details: fun & sexy sports bra is linked in my @amazonfashion store - link in my bio. comes in tons of colors and under $20!! love the quality too, i’ll likely get other colors. 😜
leggings are by @terez that i got in nyc. i’ve linked some similar through @liketoknow.it & put some in amazon store too. you can also get 20% off using my code valerievil20 on @carbon38 for similar styles. they are all so comfy!
.

the tank is by @aloyoga but i picked this one up at @nordstromrack awhile back. the back is really strappy and super cute! worth checking @marshalls for good deals too. .

It’s that time again, family photos. .
i never did these when the big kids were little...not consistently anyway. now, we do it annually (sometimes twice!) and i have to forewarn them all so they can check their attitudes (not sure it’ll work). i mean, it’s 15 minutes. you would not believe the drama these sweet faces are capable up leading up to the shoot. 🙄
.
swipe through...these are from 2 years ago. they all look so different now! and, you’ll also see teenagers first response to the heads up. lol 🙄
.
anyone else experience this holiday joy too? .
i’m so grateful for the images because they do finally get over themselves and have fun. haha. .
wish me luck! .
