We’re halfway through the week dear friends! I really appreciate all of the kind comments from everyone regarding my weight loss and fitness goals. They really brighten up my day 🙂 Today’s post is going to be short and simple. I’ve got to be at work forever tomorrow, so I want to make sure I get plenty of rest tonight.
First things first, I’ve been much better about getting in my veggies! Check out this monster of a salad I packed for lunch.
My salad included spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded carrots, chicken (hidden under everything), and plenty of goat cheese.
Served with a light drizzle of Annie’s Goddess dressing. Soooo good!
Jiggle Like Jello
I was hesitant to do any strength training today because I did some yesterday, and it’s not generally good to work out the same groups of muscles back-to-back (for an average Jane like me anyway). I also didn’t feel like running because I hadn’t taken a day off of running after my long run on Sunday, and other cardio machines bore me to tears.
I probably won’t be home until around 8:30pm tomorrow, so I figured it would be best to go big today and call tomorrow my rest day. Since I couldn’t get in to BodyPump on Monday, I tried again today. Fortunately (or not?), I was able to snag a spot right as class was about to start.
Oh my muscles! When I first reviewed BodyPump 80 last week, I really wasn’t all that impressed after all of the hype surrounding its release. Well friends, it sure gave me a swift kick in the ass today! I made sure to keep my weight the same (rather than increasing like I had planned) because of yesterday’s kick-butt workout, but it was still a majorly hard workout.
Triceps, shoulders, and abs were by far the toughest because I did a
crazy decent number of tricep push-ups, dips, and abs yesterday. I was literally shaking like a blob of Jello through each of those tracks and barely made it through the planks. Good lawd it burned so good. Now, I probably won’t be able to brush my teeth in the morning, so it’s a good thing I have a Sonicare and just have to move the brush across my teeth. Otherwise, I’d be going in to work all narsty tomorrow, and nobody appreciates poo breath.
Question of the Day: What’s the hardest workout you’ve done lately?
