Update on my week–
Last Saturday I ran with my running partner Brenda and then we went over to her house where I met her hubby and I hung out with them and their cutie pie baby, Jacob, while Matt made us omelets. Yum! As a result I made omelets for several days. I used one whole egg, 4 egg whites, turkey bacon, tomato and laughing cow cheese and when I had them, scallions.
Sunday I went to the wellness center where I did 1/2 hour of heavy spinning! Then I spent the next hour doing strength training. I did the following:
3 sets of twelve reps of each exercise:
Warm up 5 to 10 minutes ( jogging)
Bicep curls on functional trainer with the straight bar
Tricep extensions with the rope on the functional trainer
Bench press on the smiths machine ( incline)
Assisted pull ups
Lat pull down machine
Tricep dips off a bench
Ball toss ( abs with resista ball)
Back flies with 5-8 lb. dumbbells) ( squeeze shoulder blades tight together)
Shoulder press with dumbbells
Push – ups
Bicep burnouts with a tube
Back extensions on a ball
2 – 1 minute planks
I met a friend on Tuesday where we did a strength training (legs). There were lots of squats and lunges and my leg swelled up. So I had to skip my workout the next day with my cousin which put me in a grumpy mood. Whenever I skip a workout now I get exceedingly tired and grumpy.
I was finally able to run on Friday and I ran 3 miles but it was HOT. But I did it. Today is Zumba at home!
