Today was a good, productive day!! Very happy about it.
Let’s see, woke up this morning(actually slept through the night!! amazing.) and headed to the gym. My trainer wasn’t able to train me, but i was more than ready to kick my own ass. Warmed up on the tready with a 20 minute jog(6.0 mph) and headed over to the weight room for some Glute/Ham ac-ti-on!
-Deadlifts-4 sets total ranging from 95-135 lbs. Still working my strength back up and managed to get 8 reps at 135, so I know 155 is in my near future. I always get strong very quickly with deadlifts!
-Smith squats supersetted with lying Hamstring curls(this is where I started getting nauseous from working so damn hard. i was grunting and groaning to get through my ham curl sets, but i needed it!)
-Glute machine supersetted(i don’t think that is even a word) with hip abduction–drop sets and also hip adduction.
It was intense and definitely left me way nauseous. Sadly i like that, because i know i literally gave it all that I had. However, feeling nauseous sucks, and made me not want to do cardio…but i did anyways–40 minutes of incline walking 15% at 3.3 mph..worked up quite the sweat.
I then headed home and showered, went to a work meeting, headed to work, and then came home.
Eats for today:
m1: 1 c spinach, 1 egg, 1 c egg whites, 1 apple, 2 TBSP Almond butter
m2(post workout): 5.5 oz chicken, 1/4 avocado, asparagus
m3: salad made with mixed greens, 3 oz. chicken, 1/2 roma tomato, and 1/2TBSP coconut oil
m4: 5.5 oz chicken with broccoli/cauliflower mix
m5:3TBSP Almond butter, 1 red bell pepper, 2TBSP fresh salsa(no additives)
m6: 1c. spinach, 1c egg whites, green beans
And YES, i did stretch after my workout, so goals for today have been completed! 🙂
I also just want to point out that my tanner from the competition is finally starting to come COMPLETELY off and needless to say I kind of look like i have skin diseases on my chest and back. Really sexy, I know 🙂
Hope everyone’s having a great day. i am hoping to report some awesome news tomorrow night! We will see! Wish me luck!
