How is your Wednesday going??? I hope well!
This morning I started out at the gym…did Making the Cut- Day 26:
I did these circuits TWICE. Total time @ gym: 48 minutes, Total calories: 300, Max HR: 186, Avg. HR: 128
Lunch was a little more feeling today than yesterday- added the pear…but I didn’t eat a snack after work because I had to go straight to the doctor.
For my workout #2- I went after work with Craig to the gym. I did of did a mish-mosh of stuff. I HATE going to the gym un-prepared..but that’s how I went in today. I feel like a lost little puppy- just kind of walking around…and not wanting to work the same muscles twice. Here it is- my crazy/ weird workout:
- 3 sets of 5 reps- Bench Presses- 45lb. bar + 10 lb on each side= 65 lb.
-3 sets of 10 reps-Shoulder Presses- 15 lb. weights
-20 Bosu ball crunches with Cable behind my head (35lb.)
-Then about 20 minutes of Ab work- inc.: 30 V-ups, 30 V-crunches, 30 (each side) oblique crunches on Body ball, 30 reverse wood choppers, 30 crunches with hands on knees, 30 regular crunches on Body ball, 30 toe touch crunches, & various other things. I did the 30 reps in sets of 10.
-15 min. on Elliptical- 10 resistance.
-50 Ab crunches (on machine) with 60lb. weight
-Back extensions- 50 weight
-20 more Bosu ball crunches with cable- 35lb.
& probably a few other things that I just can’t remember. GRRR! Sorry, I HATE HATE HATE not remembering what I did. It’s a pet peeve.
Total time: 1 hr. 5 min., 255 calories (as you can see, didn’t work out too hard- just enough to get moving), Max HR: (which I KNOW is wrong- my HR monitor is messed up for some reason.) 234 <–WRONG; Avg HR: 107
Do you prepare before you go to the gym? I always have my printed out workout with me. I prep the night before, figure out what I’m going to do (intervals or circuits or full body weights, etc.) & I figure out what kind of cardio to do as well.
When we came home I kind of threw dinner together. Thankfully I had prepped a bit last night for tonight. I got the idea for dinner from Picky Palate- did not follow the recipe..just liked her idea :) Spaghetti topped French bread. I used a bit under a 1/2 a box for both halves.
The French bread I got is 1/2 of the regular size French bread. Got it from Super Target :)
That was dinner. It was good- pretty basic. But good for a quick, easy meal.
Sorry this post is kind of boring tonight. I am just DEAD tired. I didn’t sleep well last night- was having a lot of stomach issues :( Hence the dr. visit today..so I’m hoping tonight I will get a good night’s sleep!!! My body is in much need.
Hope you have a GREAT night :) & I don’t know how many blogs I will get to read tonight, but I will definitely catch up tomorrow night. ;)
