Is anyone else very very very sick of winter yet? It snowed the whole entire day yesterday. So much snow. The kids didn’t have school because of President’s Day, and I didn’t have to watch my niece so we stayed in all day.
Sunday morning I decided to go to BodyPump. I figured I could see how my hip felt after class – that way I would know if I would be okay to teach on Friday. My hip was a little sore afterwards, but nothing too bad.
My hip felt a lot better yesterday. Not 100% but better than normal.
Sunday afternoon, we had family over to celebrate Jaden’s birthday.
My grandma made Jaden’s cake:
It’s a Furby! Didn’t she do an awesome job?! All Jaden wanted was a Furby cake and it turned out perfect!
Marlene also made these delicious cookies.
After eating snacks, cookies, cake, and pizza over the weekend, I was happy to start my new nutrition plan yesterday.
I decided that after I’ve been on the meal plan for a full week, I would write a whole post about it. I want to see how the first week goes first
I had an awesome workout today. My hip feels better than it has in months although my quad and glute still hurt. They might take a while to get back to normal after overcompensating for my hip for so long. My quad is burning so much that I should probably throw some ice on it.
- Stretching and hip strengthening exercises – 15 minutes
- Plank #18 – 1:32
- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
- Women on Weights Class – 45 minutes
I worked out a lot longer than I normally do today because my gym just started a new fitness class called Women on Weights and I really wanted to try it. It was a great 45 minute class that consisted of a full body workout.
I really liked that it took place on the fitness floor rather than in a classroom. We used machines, dumbbells, barbells, body weight, etc. We did it all!
I burned 977 calories in 2 hours! Post workout, I had a Larabar and half a protein shake.
Since I knew I’d be working out a little longer today, I are a little more at breakfast.
Two egg muffin frittatas and oatmeal.
Well, I’m off to ice my quad. Have a great afternoon!
