We were good this morning and got up and went to the gym, the alarm went off at 5:30 and I made myself get out of bed. It was worth it! I always have so much more energy the mornings that I workout. Today was 30 minutes of cardio on the Arc Trainer while listening to some podcasts and it was leg day:
Leg Extension, 1 leg at a time (2×12)
Front Squat (2×10)
Leg Curl (2×10)
Seated Calf Raise, 1 leg at a time (2×10)
Standing Calf Raise (2×12)
I know I will be feeling this later, especially in the hamstrings. While getting ready in the locker room the following statement was heard “I have lost 35 pounds already and I get to go off my blood pressure medication”. Yeah!! That is the first positive thing I have heard in the locker room in quite some time or maybe even ever. It put a smile on my face.
Hunger was very apparent by the time I got to work and I made breakfast as quickly as possible, 2 pieces of whole wheat toast (that I only ended up eating 1 of) and a Blueberry Chobani with flax and chia seeds. With the addition of the seeds and sitting for a few minutes while I ate my toast I noticed that it got VERY thick. So tasty!
And in a nice surprise for lunch I went and met Mike for some shopping and sushi, we went to Tiger Sushi and shared the dynamite roll and the sashimi platter. The quality of the sushi was really good, the fish was fresh and great tasting.
I ran to Nordstrom Rack and picked up 2 dresses, 2 shirts, 2 sportsbras and 3 workout tops for $124 dollars! I love good deals Workout clothes are so expensive and I refuse to pay full price for them, the Rack usually has pretty good deals on them. Instead of paying $50 dollars for 1 top I end up paying $20.
Now I am off to tackle my very long to do list!
