- Trifecta Class – 60 minutes
This morning, I took the new Trifecta class at my gym – 20 minutes of cardio, 20 minutes strength, and 20 minutes abs. I personally liked how the class was set up, but the other ladies in the class thought there should be more cardio and less strength.
I think it’s because this class is replacing the Step & Tone class which is mostly cardio, so I see where they’re coming. Since, I take BodyPump three days a week, more cardio would benefit me, but I prefer strength training to cardio. If you asked me two years ago which I preferred my answer would have been completely different!
Even though we only did 20 minutes of cardio, it was a lot of jumping which I could immediately feel in my calves. When I got home, I put on my calf sleeves to help because I have 6 miles on the books for tomorrow!
I am ordering a couple of new compression items that I am excited about (is it weird to be excited about compression gear?!) – shorts and socks. I’ll talk more about them once I’ve gotten them and tried them out!
Post workout, I had my first ever Soy Joy bar.
It was really skinny, but delicious! It tasted a lot better than I expected. Not that I expected it to taste bad, I just liked it more than I thought I would.
After the gym, I went to Target
to spend way too much money pick up a few things. Buying so many bars really starts to add up! I buy Clif Builder bars for Danny and me, Atkins bar, and kids’s Clif Z bars.
I don’t follow a low-carb diet, I just like the taste of the cranberry Atkins bars, and they have 10 grams of protein. And the Builder Bars are just plain delicious.
While I was at Target, Jaden’s school called to say that he wasn’t feeling well, and I had to go pick him up.
He doesn’t look too sick…
Jaden spent the first year of his life perfectly healthy. He never even got a fever until he was a little over a year old (I remember because we had dinner plans with Danny’s boss and had to cancel). Now, I feel like my poor child is sick all of the time.
He has allergies, fevers, stomach pain, breathing problems, ear infections, etc. I feel so bad for him, and we do everything we can for him, but he still gets sick a lot. He’s had his tonsils and adenoids out, he’s on breathing treatments and allergy medications, he gets allergy shots, he’s had initial tests for his stomach problems (which seem better lately), but as a parent it makes you feel helpless. Luckily, it’s nothing too serious which I guess is the positive part of the situation.
When he was hospitalized for respiratory failure a couple of years a go, I let him order whatever he wanted from the hospital menu – he picked Fruit Loops and donuts:
Lunch this afternoon was an “anything that’s in the fridge salad.”
My salad had romaine lettuce, orange peppers, green peppers, cranberries, walnuts, and pears. I am in need of some more veggies in the house! I also had a Greek yogurt for some protein.
Have a great afternoon!
- If you have kids, do they get sick a lot? Did you get sick a lot as a kid?
- Cardio or Strength?
- Do you wear any compression items?
- Favorite protein/granola bar? There are so many good ones!
