I have a feeling this Monday is going to be even more rough than normal for most people. I bet quite a bit of you stayed up to watch the Super Bowl last night. As much as a football fanatic that I am, I did not stay up. I guess I’m still kind of spiteful, and think that the Ravens should have been in the big game. Don’t worry, I won’t go there. I will just keep my thoughts to myself.
The good news is that I think I’m almost over my cold….almost! I have been taking Mucinex & Sudafed like crazy. I always swear by Mucinex, I love the stuff. Every doctor I have gone to always recommends it to me. (for sinus infections)
I’m almost back to my old self.
Nothing like Starbucks coffee to pick you right up!
I did a KICK butt workout on Saturday & then had a nice long run on Sunday. I haven’t talked much about my workout habits, only because I don’t want my blog to get too caught up in those subjects (eating/ working out); that is part of why I started this new blog. But I do want to share some of my favorite workouts with you; I know I get a lot of workout ideas from blogs, so I thought you might like me to share some of them with you. :)
This is a full body workout & it took me about an hour to complete. I also used heavy weight, so that on my last set I was at failure.
|Pushups on Bench (or incline pushup)||15||3|
|Supersetted with Dumbbell Sumo Squats||12||3|
|Supersetted with Barbell Bicep Curls||12||3|
|Incline Dumbbell Bench Press||12||3|
|Supersetted with Wide Grip Assisted Pullups||12||3|
|Bulgarian Split Squats with a barbell on shoulders||12 each leg||3|
|Supersetted with Leg Extensions||12||3|
|Barbell Upright Rows||12||3|
|Supersetted with Barbell Military Presses||12||3|
|Cable Straight Bar Pushdown (for Tri’s)||15||3|
|Supersetted with Rope Attachment Cable Hammer Curls||15||3|
Once I finished the weight part of my workout I did some ab exercises (like incline situps, planks, etc) & then did 20 minutes on the elliptical. I was POOPED by the time we left the gym.
I love doing longer workouts on the weekends, since we don’t have any time constraints, like my weekday morning workouts. It’s nice to be able to not have to worry about leaving in a certain amount of time.
If you want any specific types of workouts- let me know! I have a whole binder full of weight workouts- I’m really BIG on weight lifting. I love it!! I used to be a cardio freak- all I did was run a TON- like 6 miles everyday. But once I discovered weightlifting, my workouts changed entirely. Now I still run, but definitely not as many miles. (unless I’m training for a race) I love the feeling of lifting heavy, & I love how it tones my body.
Some of my favorite weight lifting blogs and websites are: One Fit Foodie, Julie GoLean, JillFit, Meals & Moves, and Body Building.com. If you are ever looking for weight workouts, I suggest checking out any of those sites!
