Today's Workout


After work yesterday, I picked up Bethany from cheer practice, dropped her off at home & hit the gym. I had a chat with Tab about my progress, did my workout, ate a solid dinner, then a while later drank a protein shake and watched some figure competition videos before bed. 

This morning I hit the gym early and did my Chest/Triceps workout:

Incline Dumbbell Press 2 sets of 10
Flat Dumbbell Press 2 sets of 12
Pec Deck  - 2 sets of 12
Tricep Pushdowns 2 sets of 12 (with a 3-count hold at the bottom as you squeeze the tricep like you're trying to push the bar through your thighs)
Lying Tricep Extensions 2 sets of 12
Abs - 3 sets of 30  reverse crunches on a bench

Time to complete (including 5 min warm-up on elliptical): 32 minutes
Calorie Burn: 180
Heart-rate info: 124-147

I forgot my iPod shuffle this morning, and can I say that the music my gym pumps through the speakers SUCKS??? Because it does. Lol.  After that, I had a banana and a protein shake (1.5 scoops protein powder), then chugged some coffee as I readied for the day.  Tonight, I'll be doing the abs class taught by Tab, followed by 30 minutes of cardio (20 min. HIIT, 10 steady), then clean up, run home and make my wrap and dash over to the bowling alley to cheer on my guys.

My water intake is staying pretty consistent at 1 gallon/day. Water has always been a challenge for me, so I'm excited to be hitting my mark on a regular basis.

Ok... back to work! :-)
