Wow, I think I actually like this 12-8 type deal. I got SO much done this morning! I did laundry, went to the gym, VOTED, did my bible study and bought a surprise for Ryan, which I mailed out at the post office. 😉 Now I’m all ready for work and hoping it won’t be too crazy of a day/night!
Here’s what I did at the gym though:
20 minutes of elliptical on hill mode
2 sets of eagle leg crunches (which I demo here) — 18 reps each set
2 sets of reverse crunches—18 reps each set
2 sets (each leg) of lunges on bozu ball–15 reps
2 sets of calf press—50 lbs, 15 reps
2 sets of hip abduction—50 lbs, 15 reps
2 sets of hip adduction—50 lbs, 15 reps
I stayed about 45 minutes or so and it was a pretty good workout. I was sweaty and the elliptical wasn’t SO bad with the latest Shape magazine and US weekly by my side. 🙂
After I worked out and while I ran errands I snacked on this monster sized honey crisp apple:
And I got these at the drug store because they were totally necessary:
I think I dug all the red ones out and ate them 😉
I knew I needed a filling lunch today so I made a meal that combined a healthy amount of protein, complex carbs and fat to keep me going. I heated up a cup of Glen Muir Organic Lentil Soup and had it with a toasted ezekiel muffin with a few tbsp hummus and a slice of swiss cheese:
Let’s just say Amy’s Split Pea soup blew this soup away. It was just okay…sort of watery. The flavor was good but I like my split pea soup really thick and creamy. This wasn’t that at all.
As for tonight, I may just eat staff meal or I may eat this:
With the bar for a mid-afternoon snackie.
Okay lovlies—I’m off to be a working girl! Remember, you can get free coffee AND free ice cream tonight if you have your “I Voted” sticker! If I get off early enough I am going to try to find the ice cream….haha!
