Sorry for the disappearing act! Just wanted to make sure my magic skills were still up to par 😉
Wednesday: Leg day!! My quad was kind of bugging me(nothing serious, just a little overuse) so I didn’t want to do any plyometrics and further the problem. I tried to focus mostly on hamstring-a-lings.
Stiff Legged Dead Lifts, Low Box Squats, 45* Hypers, Seated Ham Curls and possibly something else that is slipping my mind today?? I finished it off with 30 minutes on the stairway to hell stepmill.
Thursday: I boxed in the morning and Steve absolutely kicked our asses! I was shaking by the end.(Being on my 4th day low carb probably helped make it a little extra hard ;-)) Good stuff. Afterwards, as if my shoulders weren’t already fatigued enough, I did Shoulders/Abs. I am shocked that my abs aren’t sore today, because they were screaming at me. No literally, I had to tell them to just shut up.(wow. i just reached a whole new level of nerd.)
One arm Arnold Press/Hanging Leg Raise in Captain’s chair
Cable Crossovers/Decline Sit ups with 10lb plate
DB Lateral Raises/Lying leg raise to Hip up(these are what really got me)
DB Rear delt raise/ swiss ball crunch
Finished off with 30 minutes on the e-cliptical and called it a day.
I was so damn tired by this point, and it lasted ALL DAY LONG. I was not only tired but 4th day of low carbs and all I wanted was to just sleep, but I had to work. I did take a nap when I got home though from 6pm-8pm haha. Back in bed by 10pm and slept through the night.
Friday: Ahh today has been glorious 🙂 For one, I woke up feeling so refreshed! 2nd, I knew it was a CARB DAY 😀 😀 3rd, no work, nADA + pay day from all 3 jobs and it was also a rest day. Well, at least it was supposed to be.
I woke up at 5:30am (too late for yoga :-() but knew that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I just sat at home. So I headed to the gym. I decided on my way that I wanted to do a short and sweet conditioning workout. I did the same one I did last Sunday and it kicked my ass once again. I have been begging people at the gym to try it, but I have no takers so far…
5 min. 6.5mph 1% on the TM
15 HIGH box jumps(as in, as high as you can go for 15 without not being able to make it onto the box)
10(20 for dudes) jumping pullups to burpees.(make sure the pullup bar is high enough. it makes it much harder ;-))
sled push with 55lbs today
Repeat that 3 times.
This is definitely NOT a beginner workout, and is really tough. Unless you have done this type of training before, make sure you have someone supervise it so you don’t get injured. I don’t want to be responsible for a broken face from not making it onto the box 😉
That took me about 30ish minutes, and then I hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes to stretch out the leggies. My sister doesn’t work on Fridays and likes to go hiking, so I went with her cuz I’m a god damn good sister. 😀
Today’s food has been g-l-o-r-i-o-u-s
*1/2 cup oats, 1T Chia seeds, 1 scoop protein powder, 3 Egg whites , cinnamon
*1 scoop protein with water(post workout)
*4 oz. tilapia w/ 1 tsp coconut oil before the hike
*1 apple and 13 strawberries after the hike! 🙂 oh how i’ve missed fruit. i ate this while driving home because it had been about 3.5 hours since i’d eaten and i was STARVIN MARVIN
*1 whole sweet potato, 2 TBSP Almond butter and 6 egg whites. This. was. delicious. Pretty sure if i could have this for every meal, I would!
*Double protein shake!! 2 handfuls of ice, water, 1/2 cup liquid egg whites, 1/2tsp xanthan gum, 2tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 scoops of protein
I am totally full right now, but totally happy. I’ve got boot camp tomorrow and then maybe I will ACTUALLY rest on Sundays. Rest days are important, but I also need to get a sprint workout in this week(didn’t on Tuesday because of my quad issue). I may try to do just that Sunday morning, but we’ll see.
I leave for San Diego in 5 days!!! Can’t wait!! I will be working an expo for 2 of the days, but then I get to play the rest of the time 🙂 My schedule for march is totally crazyy! Next week alone I have:
Wednesday(possibly tuesday night): Leave for San Diego
Thursday & Friday: Work at health expo(demoing spin bikes. Pretty sure I will be spinned out after 13+ hours of spinning in two days!! Please god let us take breaks haha)
Saturday: Fly home and go straight to pre-judging of the NPC show here(tons of friends competing!!) and then my BEST friend’s older brother(who is like a brother to me) is getting married that night!!!
After that I only work 40 hours the next week and then it all starts over with more weddings, another event, fitness conference and bachelorette party. This month is going to FLYYYY by!!
Oh, and my birthday is next Wednesday! I keep forgetting because I have so much going on, so you may have to remind me 😉
