Felt like a busy day today. Went to the Y and did a bit of biking and walking, then the extra bonus NROLW workout – goal to do as many reps as possible at starting weight.
Dead lifts – 25 # bar 32 reps (I could have kept going, but got bored LOL)
Pushups at 45 degree angle = 30 reps
Seated lat rows at 40# = 25 reps
Step ups with 20 pound dumbbells = 30 reps each leg
Stability ball jackknife = 18 reps.
Now I have a whole week off from strength training! I’ll take that time to concentrate on bricks and fueling.
Came home to protein pancakes:
I left out the protein powder today since I had a lighter workout. That makes them a little fluffier without the extra protein.
Got started at work early – since I have a 3-day weekend starting tomorrow! Woo Hoo! Sooner I got done, the sooner my mini vacay starts 😀
Dinner was a buffalo chicken wrap. I had some cooked chicken breast which I chopped up and put on a smart carb wrap with a tiny bit of blue cheese dressing, lots of hot sauce and some spring mix salad. So good! And fresh blueberries. I am going to turn purple pretty soon!
After dinner, we went for a bike ride and got some frozen yogurt. I tried carrot cake flavor, which was pretty good, but not great. The ride there and back is around 13 miles or so, which is great to have a treat and burn off all the calories getting there and back!
So the challenge ends today! I ate pretty well today to finish off the challenge. I had 10 good days and 2 not so good days, so overall I am pleased. Plus, I lost about 2 pounds, which is awesome for me! I have gained a few while training for the triathlon, so it is nice to see the scale go the other way.
Tomorrow is my birthday (41 eeek!), and I have a nice long weekend to enjoy! I’ll post pics of my dinner tomorrow.
