Good afternoon, friends! How are you today? I must tell you, I am so sick of the snow. I hate snow. If I never saw another snowflake again, I would be perfectly happy. I am counting the days until spring is here!
I have been really good about getting my diet back on track this week, with the small exception of going out to celebrate my dad and stepmom’s birthdays on Tuesday night. Let’s just say there was a lot of Mexican food and margaritas involved. But I am a firm believer of everything in moderation.
I made sure I was back on track Wednesday morning. Before work, I had plain Fage Greek yogurt mixed with a packet of Stevia and topped with raspberries.
I love eating this for breakfast because it’s starts my morning out with a lot of protein!
I went to the gym this morning, but I decided that it was in my best interest to hold off on the Bikini Body Mommy workouts for a few days. They are great short workouts but the amount of jumping and squats involved has really been hard on my body on top of the other workouts I’m doing.
I was a little bit disappointed because I made it 40 days straight without missing a workout but I’m really trying to listen to my body and do what’s best for it.
I still managed to get a good workout in, focusing mostly on upper body and core work. I found a circuit workout in the Sarah Fit book and added a couple more exercises to it.
My circuit consisted of:
- single leg bicep curls x 20 (10 each leg)
- triceps dips with feet on a stability ball (I forgot how hard these were!) x 12
- chest presses on stability ball x 15
- bentover rows x 15
- upright rows x15
- dumbbell deadlifts x 15
I rested about 2 minutes in between each circuit. I did the circuit three times each.
Then I moved on to a core circuit. For this circuit I did:
- Russian twists with a medicine ball x 16 (each side)
- single leg heel touches x 10 / double leg heel touches x 10
- bicycle crunches x 15 each side
- plank 30 seconds
- dumbbell side bends x 20 (each side)
I did this circuit three times, resting one minute in between.
After the gym, I stopped at Target where I found these individual bags of Jack Links on clearance.
I love the Jack Links and always buy the big bag. I have never seen the individual bags at my Target and suddenly there was a bunch of boxes on the clearance shelf. Where did they come from?!
Now I’m at home sipping on some Cinnabon coffee and getting a few things done. I’m working on a workout for my first Women on Weights class that I’m teaching next week!
Have a great day!
