Good morning and happy March! Can you believe it’s March already?! I’m just waiting for winter to be over and for spring to arrive!
The kids had the day off of school on Friday so I didn’t go to the gym in the morning. Instead, we went to the library.
I love the library. So. Many. Books.
Since, I didn’t work out in the morning, Danny and I went to the gym at night, and Jacob came with too. Danny and I worked on back and biceps while Jacob walked on the track. After we were done, Jacob wanted to jump rope so we spent a little bit of time jump roping.
Jacob was so funny – he was doing a run jump rope thing where he would run down the hall while jump roping. It was hilarious to watch and I couldn’t stop laughing. I usually can’t get him to go to the gym for anything, but he enjoyed jump roping!
And Danny got to wear his new Fitbit to the gym!
Being the super sweet wife that I am, I bought him a Fitbit Charge. I think just about my whole family owns a Fit bit now.
We went to the gym again Saturday morning like we usually do and worked chest and triceps. Danny is usually in charge of the chest exercises and the decline chest presses are killer. (I use an EZ bar because my wrist always hurts and the EZ bar is a little less stressful on it.)
The decline chest presses aren’t super hard to do but I really feel it later!
We stopped at the store on the way home and I was excited to find this butterscotch “yogurt.”
I posted it on Instagram and someone that it’s not actually Greek yogurt because it doesn’t contain any active cultures like yogurt does. It’s simply a “dairy treat.” Companies can be sneaky and sometimes you really have to pay attention to food labels. Of course, you assume the Oikos is yogurt but it doesn’t say yogurt anywhere on the packaging.
Regardless, it was still good!
Saturday evening, we went to my dad and stepmom’s to celebrate their birthdays.
We had spaghetti, salad, and bread followed by cake and ice cream.
We had a fun time celebrating and visiting.
Sunday morning, we were back at the gym. No surprise there. We worked legs. I haven’t done just a leg day in awhile because me hip/quad/Achilles tendon always are sore but I also know it’s important to build strength so I am going to add more leg exercises into my workouts.
For leg exercises we did:
- leg press machine
- leg extension machine
- leg curl machine
- step up to kickbacks
- walking lunges
- calf raises
After the gym we went grocery shopping and then to Whole Foods for lunch. We stopped for some frozen yogurt on the way home.
Our grocery store had the Rockin’ Refuel protein drinks on sale for $1 each. I’ve never seen them this cheap so I had to stock up.
Overall, we had a pretty quiet and laid back Sunday.
This morning, I went to the gym and worked shoulders. My leg isn’t as sore a I thought it would be after yesterday but my quad is a little sore. I made sure to foam roll it a lot at the gym and stretch.
Tomorrow is my first day teaching Women on Weights class!
Have a great day!
