Jan everywhere. (I watch way too much of The Office.)
Started out pretty normal. I decided to let myself sleep in today. Sure enough, I was wide awake at 5am. I got up had breakfast and headed to the gym.
This week, my trainer has been doing all high rep sets because a lot of the girls are competing next week. I have been doing my own workouts most days this week because I’m not competing, but didn’t really feel like thinking today.
We had a circuit going on involving SL deadlifts, One leg SL deadlifts, DB SL deadlifts, lying ham curls, lying bicep curls, seated bicep curls, EZ bar curls, hammer strength seated rows and lat pulldowns.
Pretty good workout, but I just don’t really like high rep workouts. I like 8-12 reps for my sets, but also know that high reps have their benefits as far as building muscle endurance.
Afterwards, I did a little over 3 miles outside for cardio.
I went home and ate, watched the Fitness America live webcast and dealt with some crap. I got really stressed out and happily accepted an invitation back to the gym. The cure for any and all bad things??? SQUATS. They made me feel muchh better.
i ❤ squats and deadlifts. end o’ story.

Tomorrow I’ll be up bright and early for boot camp and then abs class. Afterwards, like I mentioned yesterday, I’m booking it home to meet my friends Perry and Danny to head to Sedona for the day to hike and hang out by the creek. I am beyond stoked because I really NEED to get out of Phoenix for the day. Today was too stressful and I’m blessed to live less than 2 hours from such a beautiful place.
