Good afternoon! Exactly one week until Christmas! Who’s excited?!
Today, my morning started out with a McCafe k-cup!
I am excited that McDonald’s is now making k-cups! I don’t like McDonald’s food, but I love their coffee. Before my Keurig days, I drank McDonald’s coffee almost every day.
For breakfast, I had one of these Dannon salted caramel Greek yogurts. I found them at Wal-Mart yesterday and had to pick some up to try. Delicious!
This morning I went to the gym and started out on the elliptical for about 15 minutes. I’m still not running yet because my Achilles tendon still bothers me. Super frustrating. I worked on chest and triceps exercises today and finished up my workout with about five minutes of jump roping.
I’m starting to do some jumping exercises at physical therapy so my therapist said I could incorporate about 10 minutes of jump roping into my gym routine twice a week. I haven’t really done high intensity cardio in awhile so I was pretty much out of breath after jump roping. I jump as long as I can in a row and then rest a few seconds before continuing.
I ended up burning 574 calories!
My chest and triceps exercises included:
- incline chest press machine
- decline chest press machine
- chest press to single arm chest flies
- chest press machine
- overhead dumbbell triceps extensions
- cable triceps pressdowns
- overhead cable triceps extensions
I am back to eating grilled veggie pizzas for lunch.
I typically eat the same thing for lunch for a couple of weeks in a row and then switch it up. It’s just easier when I don’t have to think about what I’m going to eat for lunch everyday.
This afternoon, I have a few more presents to wrap and then I have to get things ready for Jaden’s holiday party at school tomorrow.
Have a great day!
