AMRAP Nutrition Bar Winners
The three winners of the AMRAP bars are Sarah, Kelsey, and Melissa. I sent all the winners an email. Congrats!
Our weekend was busy but low-key at the same time.
On Saturday morning, Jacob had a soccer game. On Saturday afternoon, I went to a baby shower for my best friend’s sister.
Me, Jenny, and Crystal (another mama-to-be):
I made a cute diaper cake for the shower.
My grandma made an amazing elephant cake for the shower. How cute did it turn out?! It was delicious red velvet cake on the inside.
In addition to my quad pain, I have been having some pretty bad adductor pain. My quad will get sore when I am doing too much, but the adductor pain is pretty much a constant annoying pain all the time.
My physical therapist told me that I should stay out of the gym for the whole weekend, except for swimming. She said at this point swimming is the best thing I can do. She said to do squats and lunges in the pool rather than kicks because the kicks are using my adductor muscles too much for the time being.
On Sunday morning, Danny and I swam for about 45 minutes. I did a total of 35 laps which is my most so far. I count swimming to one side of the pool as one lap. I usually do some laps without the kickboard and then use the kickboard once my leg and hip starts to get too tired.
I told myself that if I burned at least 300 calories while swimming, I would get a Dunkin Donuts pumpkin spice crème brulee iced coffee.
It was amazing.
Sunday afternoon was the first Chicago Bears game of the season! My family came over to watch the game.
My adorable niece.
Danny was able to find the Chobani pumpkin spice yogurt at Wal-Mart near his work and I had it for breakfast this morning.
It was so good! It reminds me of pumpkin pie and it would be delicious with graham crackers crumbled on top. Yum! I’m loving all the pumpkin food.
I also found pumpkin bread and cookies.
This morning, I went to the gym. My adductor is feeling a little better but my quad is sore after working out. It’s never ending and super annoying.
I worked on back and biceps today. I did some of the following exercises:
- wide grip lat pull down
- seated cable row
- back extension machine
- quadruped opposite arm/leg raise
- seated biceps curls
- cable biceps curls
- plate twists
- concentration curls
It was a fast workout because I had to pick up my niece. I think I will spend the rest of the day resting my leg!
Have a great afternoon!
