Started it off with a great work out with my friend Amy, we met at the gym at 7:30 this morning just after dropping the kids off at school. We started out with a nice 10 minute warm up on the stair mill (great to get our butts in shape) then moved onto our weight training or what I have so fondly begun to call my daily dose of Shelly is killing me ;) Tuesday's are my day for back and triceps so that means....dun dun dun - pull ups! Not my favorite but I am happy to say that I am getting better.
Now today though I had to do two sets on my own (meaning I could not use the machine assist) yes, my back is burning! From there I hat Lat pull down with dumbbell swings, 1 arm dumbbell rows, standing dbell overhead extension with bench dips, and skull crushers with hyper extensions. From there we went back into do 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical - my legs were killing me as I worked them hard on Friday and didn't feel they were fully recovered before working them hard again yesterday so I only did a 5 resistance on there with 10 minutes forward and then 10 minutes backwards all at a 10 incline. But, I wasn't done there.
My friend Adrianna then joined me for Yoga - this class was from 9 - 10:15 and if you've ever done yoga before, you know that it's no joke on your legs, back, arms, core - everything :) So 2.5 hours in the gym this morning did me good!
I came home and make a turkey burger on my new George Foreman grill, served it on a fat free high fiber tortilla with spinach and a little mustard YUMMY! I then treated myself to my new favorite 'dessert' 4 egg white scrambled and mixed with a little bit of brown sugar splenda and cinnamon - don't knock it till you try it ;) - can't say it's better than girl scout cookies...but it sure as heck is better for you and being as girl scout cookies are not on my diet, I try and get my creative food side going :)
