It’s Thursday already and the week is almost over! It has gone by fast. I sure wish I didn’t have to work and waste all that time 😉
Last strength workout for the week and Stage B.
|1. Crunches on stability ball||3 sets of 10|
|2. Complex: High Pull, Front Squat/Push Press, Back Squat, Good Morning||4 sets of 8 each exercise with 20# bar|
|3A. Deadlift||3 sets of 10 with 65# bar|
|3B. Dumbbell Overhead Press with rotation||3 sets of 10 with 10# DB|
|3C. Single Leg Squat||3 sets of 10|
|3D. Bent Over Row||30 sets of 10 45# bar|
Only new move to me is the overhead dumbbell press with rotation. You basically rotate the same side of the body that is pressing up with the dumbbell. That’s a nice addition to that move.
This complex was a little different than workout A. I actually hit myself in the chin with the bar doing the front squat/push press. I remember now that I did that when I did NROLW, too. Guess I never learned my lesson.
Again, this workout was really more metabolic and kept the heart rate up. I didn’t think it was possible for me to get sweatier lifting than I have been with this program, but I managed it. 😳
Breakfast upon return to home:
Protein waffles topped with a banana mashed up with maple syrup. It may not look like a lot, but I had a 200 calorie protein drink already. Plus, I was saving the other 2 waffles wedges for lunch.
So, there I guess is a time to do lunch!
I used my new sandwich press with the other 2 waffle wedges to make a chicken sausage sandwich.
I like having new toys 😀 I guess that shows how exciting my life is… I was just saying to my mother last night that I was so happy that my life is pretty much drama free. Either that or it is how I react to stuff that keeps it fairly drama free.
Also, having an afternoon latte is also a good way to stay on an even keel.
Ran a bit late with work today and I was a little cranky for dinner. That meant something fast! Omelet time.
I diced up the potato and microwaved it for a few minutes before tossing it in the pan to brown up a bit. 10 minute dinner.
Then I was happy again 😀
Such a beautiful evening that John and I took advantage of that for a Thursday night treat. Riding for froyo! Lots of choices.
I wanted the Baklava, but they were out. So, I ended up with cinnamon bun.
Refreshing, but not my favorite flavor. Rum cheesecake or pistachio would probably be that.
One more day til the weekend!
