I had a fantastic workout this morning! Today I did legs and cardio and after these workouts especially I always feel so full of energy!
Here’s what I did:
2 minutes running on treadmill to warm up
3 sets of leg press—12 reps—70 lbs
3 sets of deadlifts—12 reps—40 lbs
3 sets of hamstring curls—12 reps–60 lbs
3 sets of cable glute kickbacks–12 reps—15 lbs to start then 20 lbs on last two sets
25 minutes on treadmill: 10 minutes running, 10 minutes of sprints and 5 minutes of speed walking at an incline (I HATE sprints but do them anyways because of all the cardio I do, sprints is what really makes me feel the burn. If you are stuck in a rut with your cardio, do sprints. They work. They really really work.)
I was at the gym for about an hour and afterwards felt totally refreshed and strong. Love that!
I made a monster of a salad for lunch today. So big that I couldn’t even finish it all! Here were the components:
about 3 cups of mixed organic greens
1 can chunk light tuna
4 carrot slices, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
1/4 cup hummus
1 small bunch grapes (about 10 grapes)
the rest of the whipped cottage cheese container (roughly 1/4 cup)
about 12 kashi crackers (finished the box)
And to finish it off, a HUGE glass of ice water!
I didn’t really eat the cottage cheese because I was getting too full from the hummus/tuna combo. I also left some of the lettuce, celery and carrots but devoured all the grapes and crackers! Here’s what it looked like when I was finished with it:
This should keep me powered up for a good while!! I’m off to Target!
