Good afternoon. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Danny and I went to the gym on Saturday morning. We worked on shoulders and core. Some of our exercises included:
- shoulder press machine
- front plate raise with a twist
- upright rows
- Arnold presses
- lateral cable raises
- partner sit-ups with a medicine ball
Post workout, we took some selfies. Totally normal.
Saturday evening, we drove about 40 minutes to see a Christmas lights display.
The lights were really cool and it was fairly short so we drove through twice. It was nice because you got to see all the Christmas lights from your car and it was free with the option to leave a donation at the end. I really enjoyed it. Danny and the kids liked it too.
My adductor and quad were really sore on Friday and Saturday so I debated on going to the gym on Sunday. I was kind of having a bad morning on Sunday but finally around 11 am, Danny and I decided to head to the gym. Sometimes working out helps me feel better when I’m stressed or having a bad day.
Pre-workout, I had the Cellucor C4.
I planned on walking for a few minutes to warm up but ended up going longer. I was going to walk on Sunday and run today but I was feeling really good walking so I decided to try running. I ended up running 14 minutes which is my longest run since my hip surgery. I felt really good but I was sore afterwards.
We also did a biceps and triceps workout which included:
- cable biceps curls
- hammer curls
- biceps curl machine
- overhead triceps extensions (with dumbbells and on the cable machine)
- triceps pushdowns
We had a limited about of time since the kid’s room closes at 12:30 and we had to get Jaden, but we still got a really good workout in!
Sunday evening, we went to Whole Foods and I had a California roll for dinner. Jaden had a dairy free pizza that we found at our local grocery store.
I was really worried that he wouldn’t like it but he ended up eating two slices! He said it was good but I know he’ll end up eating it two or three times and then tell me that he doesn’t like it anymore and never eat it again.
Jaden is picky and only likes certain foods so finding dairy free options for him can be challenging.
After dinner, we worked on making and wrapping some Christmas gifts!!
Today, I went to the gym but took it really easy. I rode the stationary bike for 15 minutes and then I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, my Achilles tendon has been bothering me a lot lately. (I swear, if it’s not one thing it’s another. Why can’t I ever just be 100%?! So frustrating!) I made sure to stretch and foam roll afterwards.
Have a great afternoon!!
