Today’s going to be a good day for this girl over here. I’m leaving work at noon because I’m going to California this afternoon! So much to get done before then.. to do lists you have nothing on me today.
When I walked outside this morning to head to take Shelby for a walk it was gorgeous out. Fall is coming, slowly but surely!
Breakfast was my typical Thomas Whole Wheat English muffin with peanut butter and honey. Shocker.
I had a protein pumpkin muffin after the gym to hold me over until I ate my breakfast at work (recipe to come soon).
Since I know I can’t get a workout in this afternoon, I knew I had to get my booty to the gym this morning.
I wasn’t feeling anything in particular so I created a hodgepodge of cardio hopping from machine to machine..
- 5 minutes annoying elliptical thing (technical term it’s not a regular elliptical and I don’t know what it’s called)
- 15 minutes incline walk on treadmill (I started out at 10% incline and 3.5mph and ended at 20% incline 4.2 mph)
- 15 minutes Stair Master
- 10 minutes incline walk on treadmill (17% incline, 4.2mph)
Last night’s quick weights workout looked like this..
- 20 minutes elliptical
- 60 second plank
- 15 lateral raises
- 15 shoulder press
- 15 chess press
- 15 flys (back on exercise ball)
- 15 reverse flys (stomach on exercise ball)
- 15 tricep dips
- 60 second plank
I did 3 sets of each and increased my weights a little from what I usually do since this was a quicker workout. Usually I add push-ups and mountain climbers in between some of the sets but I had to get home to pack and study.
I hope everyone has a good day! I’m going to do my best to update the blog while I’m gone but I don’t think the little hotel we’re staying at has wifi..
No post is complete without a picture from this little one.
I know most people probably hate seeing pictures of rain since they get enough, but we definitely don’t get enough in Phoenix so I was pretty excited
