Happy Cinco de Mayo! It was a gorgeous day today. I biked to the gym today for my lifting.
- Rail squats: 3 sets of 10
- Dumbbell chest fly: 3 sets of 1o with 15# DBs
- Chin ups: 4 sets of 1
- Dumbbell pullover: 3 sets of 10 with 25# DB
- Pushups: 3 sets of 10
- Reverse crunches: 3 sets of 10
- Nosebreaker: 3 sets of 15 with 20# bar
- Cable biceps curls: 2 sets of 10 with 30#
I am going to try to do more video of me doing a different strength move each week. Today is me doing the dumbbell incline chest fly. This is a great move for the chest muscles. While it looks like your arms are doing the work, it is really the chest. You want to initiate the move with your pectoral muscles. You want to feel a stretch across your chest when you open your arms, and a contraction when you bring the weights together. This can be done either flat or inclined. You can also vary where your arms are a little. Mine tend to drift upwards a bit.
John met me at the gym, and we biked to breakfast. He chose where we went today, and he picked Maude’s!
I love this sign:
I had 2 eggs over medium with home fries and toast.
I love eggs. I know you were all expecting a bagel today! They don’t have them at Maude’s. Well, they do, but they aren’t made there.
Biked home and got to work after a quick shower. Somebody got on my lap right away:
Tuna salad and the extra loud Sun Chips Those have to be kept up high, btw. I snacked on a few out of the bag before putting them on my plate.
I am still having an attack of the snacks today. Sometimes that just happens. I don’t feel guilt about eating anymore, but that doesn’t mean I am not disappointed at some of my food choices yesterday and today. Like the cookie dough:
Which I had more of, too. Accountability!
I finished up work around dinner time today and made a classic broccoli and chicken stirfry!
Always good. It was such a nice evening that I did a good amount of work weeding out the side garden bed. It’s ready for mulch now. I made the big mistake of skipping the mulch last year and had so many weeds! I am also going to purchase some astilbes for the side, probably from Bluestone Perennials. I love their plants.
We then walked down to the ice cream place and I got a small malt made with peanut butter soft serve. This was so good.
I really need to eat clean tomorrow. I wanted to lose 3 pounds in May, and this is not a good start LOL! I need to kick my own butt back in gear. Come back tomorrow and see my clean eats 😀
Question: Do you want to see more Move of the Week videos?
