This morning, I went to the gym and did a shoulder and core workout. My physical therapist wants me to work on strengthening my core, so I am doing the ab exercises that I’m able to at the gym.
First, I started with a shoulder superset workout. I did the following exercises back-to back, resting one minute in between sets. I did three sets and between 10-12 reps of each exercise.
- Shoulder press machine
- Front raise with plate
- Arnold press
- Bent arm side raises
- Upright row with kettle bell
- Overhead press with bar
I finished up my workout with some core work. I did single leg hip brides, sit-up ups on the stability ball, planks, and side planks. Although I still have to be careful with my hip, I am glad that I am able to do a lot more in the gym now.
Post workout, I had a Shamrock Farms protein drink. I found these at the grocery store yesterday and bought a few to try out.
The lean protein drink has 20 grams of protein and 12 grams of carbs which is prefect for after my workout. I really liked the chocolate flavor and I will definitely be buying more!
After leaving the gym, my niece and I stopped at Joanne Fabrics to pick up a few items for my Halloween costume.
My family always keeps our costumes a secret until our annual Halloween party, so I can’t tell you what it is yet.
I’m making most of it, and hopefully it turns out good! I couldn’t find one thing that I needed at the store, so I had to order it online and I am hoping that it arrives in time!!
Most days for lunch, I have a veggie pizza on flatbread, but today I decided to change it up a bit. Today, I made a pumpkin protein waffle with the Kodiak Power Cakes mix.
I mixed together the Kodiak mix, an egg white, some pumpkin, some water, and chocolate chips. Waffles are always better with a little bit of chocolate. I put it in my waffle maker and six minutes later, the most perfect chocolate chip pumpkin waffle was born.
Have a great afternoon!!
