SO glad I made it to the gym today, even though I know my legs will be sore tomorrow. I stayed about half an hour and got a great lower body workout in.
My boo-tay busting workout consisted of:
10 minutes on the stairmaster, level 9
3 sets of calf raises, 70 lbs, 25 reps
2 sets of hip abductor, 70 lbs, 15 reps
2 sets of hip adductor, 70 lbs, 15 reps
2 sets of hamstring curls, 50 lbs, 15 reps
3 sets of lunges on bosu ball holding two 10 lb dumbells, 3 sets per leg, 10 reps each set (these KILLED!!!!)
= about a 30 minute workout. Not too shabby!
When I got home, it was already getting dark and I was already getting hungry! It had started to rain and I was craving something warm so I fixed some soup for dinner using this:
I used the soup as a base and added protein to make a more balanced meal. Tonight, I added two slabs of leftover baked tofu from Monday night (half a package of tofu). I diced the tofu up in small dice and added to the soup before heating. The tofu was chewy and dense and really made the soup very satisfying and filling! I had a small plate of kashis on the side:
There was so much soup in my bowl we almost had an overflow. Here’s a spoonful with tofu!
I also had a square of my organic dark chocolate bar:
I think I enjoyed my little square all the more because I didn’t mindlessly “graze” on any chocolate chips at work today! Not even one! It’s SO HARD not to eat “little bites” of everything I make, but little bites add up! Every time I reach to grab chocolate chips or take a swipe off the chocolate mousse spoon, I envision my mom slapping my hand away. Haha 😉
About an hour later I had my “dessert”—-a warm chocolate vitamuffin crumbled on top of 1/2 cup stoneyfield farm organic plain yogurt:
It was kind of like cookies and cream…made healthy! I’m currently sipping on some chamomile tea as well.
I have some work to do tonight as well as my bible study. The next three days at work are absolutely going to be i-n-s-a-n-e so I’m going to try to go to bed early tonight and be well rested for tomorrow…..I think I might also go to another 6 pm spin class tomorrow!!!
Goodnight all! =)
