Summer Shape Up Week 3 giveaway- White Plum

Week 3, we’re coming after you!

I feel like I say this every time we’re in the middle of a Shape Up, but it needs to be repeated: this is the week that determines whether you will sink or swim. You’ll either decide to fizzle out, or put the same gusto you started the challenge with and power through to the finish line. (Obviously, do the latter, mm k?) You’re all doing an amazing job with your check ins and dedication; keep it up!

The Intro post has been updated and has links to your Week 3 Meal Plan and Workout. Check out the Workout page for this week’s workout + form cues. It’s an intense one, and I have a special something up my sleeve for the Week 4 workout 😉 

Huge thanks to our wonderful Summer Shape Up sponsors who have kindly hooked us up with awesome giveaways throughout the challenge.

I’ve been a huge fan of White Plum since their early days, and it’s been amazing to watch the company grow so quickly.

Here are some of the cute and comfortable summer dresses they sent to update my wardrobe 🙂

I can tell this cobalt tunic dress will get a lot of use this summer:

    Yesterday, I ran a 4-mile race in my area. I didn’t have the same group that I ran it with last year, but my mom went with to cheer me on and take photos. I finished a little slower than last year, but it was by less than a minute, and it was a fun way to get in my miles for the day. As if that weren’t enough, when we got home I did another 35 or so minutes of exercises because that’s what I do on Fridays usually. Thankfully, weights aren’t mandatory, so I just did some extra reps on the exercises where I would usually add some light weights.

  5. Cara on July 5, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    Hot yoga to start my day:) it was my first time and it was aaaaamazing! Now to enjoy a rare Saturday off with my man and the local farmers market!

  6. Jessica on July 5, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    Lots of walking was my work out this week – I was in NYC. Looking forward to “getting back to normal” next week!

  7. Melodie on July 5, 2014 at 3:25 pm

    Today was 45 minutes of yoga with Shiva Rea, 16 minutes of tabata and I ended with ab ripper x from p90x. I don’t normally have time for that much but I did today so I went with it!

  8. Sarah S on July 5, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Did a great 8 mile bike ride yesterday!

  9. Sarah S on July 5, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Going to squeeze in a barre burner tonight!

  10. Kara H. on July 5, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    4 mile run and 3x through an ab burner.

  11. Bethany on July 5, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Enjoyed a rest day today, looking forward to my last go at the week 3 workout tomorrow

  12. Connie on July 5, 2014 at 8:14 pm

    A rest day for me.

  13. Kristen on July 5, 2014 at 11:27 pm

    Color Me Rad today! So fun! 3.1 miles.

  14. Kaitlin on July 6, 2014 at 12:25 am

    HITT sprints yesterday made me sore. So the logical thing to do today was hike some hills while carrying my baby.

    My legs are still sore.

  15. Sara on July 6, 2014 at 10:27 am

    Yesterday I did an hour of upper body weights + ab work (hello, stability ball pikes!) and today is a much-needed rest day! 🙂 Happy Sunday.

  16. Bethany on July 6, 2014 at 11:48 am

    Warm up, burpees, 4.5 rounds of WO 3, plank, 15 mins steady state. Happy Sunday!

  17. april on July 6, 2014 at 11:53 am

    injury = another rest day. still following along virtually, though! =)

  18. Nikki on July 6, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    6 mile run today! Hoping to do a few rounds of workout 3 tonight as well

  19. Vicki L. on July 6, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    Yesterday, I had my weekly 10-mile run. It went really well and the weather was great, not too warm, with a fair amount of clouds and not really any humidity. I only stopped once with less than 1 1/2 miles to go, mostly just to give myself a short rest and not really because I felt like I needed it. After I got back home, I went off to yoga at the gym and it was fantastic.

  20. Jamie on July 6, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    shoulders and calves today! this weekend at beach away from a gym headed out to a track for 10x100m sprints, steps up on bench, dips on bench, push ups, side lunges, planks!

  21. Melodie on July 6, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    today’s workout was a 3 mile HIIT run outdoors.

  22. Kaitlin on July 6, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    Rest day today. I was hoping to get another day of workout 3, but my body is just too worn out from all the work I did this week.

  23. Melissa on July 6, 2014 at 11:47 pm

    Rolled back into town today in time for Pure Barre (1 hour) and a 15 minute walk with the pups. Wanted to get in HIIT too but work and getting myself (and household) ready for the week have been consuming the rest of my attention this evening. Pretty happy that even with a holiday week I managed 5 days of workouts and only 2 rest days!
