Good afternoon! Only one week until Thanksgiving – I am super excited! I’m excited for turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, cranberry sauce, carrots, pie, and all the food.
This morning, I went to the gym and did a glute and cardio workout.
For glutes/legs I did:
- sumo squats
- jump squats on the bench
- glute kickbacks on the cable machine
- split quads
After those exercises, I headed to the indoor track to walk/run for about 25 minutes. I started out walking one lap and running one lap. Then I walked one lap and ran two laps. Then I walked one lap and ran three laps. I did this up to four laps and then finished with walking two laps.
I finished up my workout with 20 easy minutes on the stationary bike. Ever since my hip surgery last year, I have found that I use the stationary bike more to cool down and keep my hip mobile.
Post workout was a protein shake and then home for lunch.
My lunches have been pretty boring lately. I have been eating the exact same thing for about three weeks. I tend to eat the same lunch for a few weeks and then change it to something else for a few weeks.
Lately, my lunch has been a big salad with carrots, tortilla strips, and Bolthouse Farms salsa ranch dressing.
I also had a bagel thin with three egg whites, provolone cheese, and fruit preserves. On the side, I had snapea crisp. It’s my favorite lunch.
My breakfast and post-workout snack usually contain a lot of protein so my lunch is a little more carb-heavy.
I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday – Danny and I are going to my cousin’s wedding tomorrow night and then we have something super exciting on Saturday – stay tuned!!
Have a great day!
