Worky Worky

Wow, what a quick week/weekend this has been! After being sick all week, finally beginning to recover, getting my workouts back in, and working, time is FLYING.

I leave for Vegas in 10 days! (I am going to cheer on my girls and hang out!)

Thanksgiving is in 18 days!

I’m working the NPC Southwestern Regionals in 20 days!

Everything is coming so quickly! I must say, though, it gives me something to look forward to every week for the next few weeks. As much as relaxing is nice, I almost always  prefer to be busy, over not-busy.

Workout:

Workout this morning was totally AWESOME. Finally feeling pretty good(other than this damn cough!)

Shoulders and Triceps were the victims today 🙂

DB Military Press

Single Arm DB Lat Raises

DB Rear Delt Raises

DB Front Raises

Plate pushes(think a shoulder press using a plate) I did center , left and right.

Blue Band Shoulder Press

Bus Driver

EZ Bar Upright Rows

Rope Pushdowns

One arm pushdowns

Overhead DB Extensions

Assisted Dips

I did supersets and drop sets and my shoulders are already sore, 5 hours later. My triceps were super pumped during the whole workout, so I’m assuming they will be sore by tomorrow.

Afterwards I got my butt on the treadmill for 45 sweaty minutes of incline walking. I ran for 5 minutes at the end because I was sick of walking.

I haven’t pushed myself to do any interval training since being sick because i don’t want to risk anything. Plus, I knew I would be working all day today and I am still kind of weak and tired from being sick, so I wanted enough energy to make it through the day. Although, I did kick my butt pretty good and am sitting here tired as we speak 🙂

Nutrition:

Meals today-

Meal 1: 1 egg, 1 cup egg whites, 1/4 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup wheat bran, 1 banana, 1/2TBSP Almond butter, 1/2TBSP Peanut butter

Supplements with breakfast: 1 green tea complex, 3 BCAA, 2 Athletes performance Multi-vits

Meal 2: 1 scoop Jay Robb Whey protein powder with 1 heaping tsp L-Glutamine

Meal3: 1 can no salt added salmon with 1/2 TBSP Coconut oil and mustard

Meal 4:  4 oz. ground turkey w/ 1/4 cup brown rice, 1 TBSP chia seeds, and mustard

Meal 5: (Haven’t had it yet) 4 oz. ground turkey and a bag of asparagus(yes, the whole bag 🙂 )

Meal 6: TBD. Most likely a salad with tomato and cucumber and salsa, an entire bag of green beans and egg whites. (i’m low on supplies and i can never go wrong with egg whites :))

Otha Shtuff

Only one month of school left until break. I need it to come sooner. I am downright SICK of it.(the business side i should say…still loving the audio production classes).

Trying to figure out more dates I can get back out to LA. I think I love it and I think that when I finish school I might be calling it home for a while. I still have another year of school though, so who knows what will happen between now and then.

Okay, I’m basically just rambling now because I am really bored at work. There are literally 2 people here working out. An hour ago, there wasn’t a single soul here besides me. I keep posting Facebook status’s telling people to stop being lazy and get their BUTTS to the gym!!! Yeah, i’m a meanie today. They won’t regret though!(so far i haven’t seen any familiar faces haha)

Here’s me yelling at you now: GET YOUR BUTTS TO THE GYM OR OUTSIDE FOR A WORKOUT (if you haven’t yet today)

  1. Two questions:

    1) I can picture “plate pushes” overhead, but how do you do left and right?

    2) What are bus drivers lol?

    I am very narrow on top so always looking to strengthen my shoulders to make them appear a little broader, but always just end up doing lat/front raises and upright rows. It gets boring and since our weight room is pretty limited I feel stuck!

    Glad you’re feeling better finally 🙂
