Ok so a little strange name for my blog post today but I feel like I had a huge victory today.
I finally made it to the gym this morning!!!
I have been so on and off with the gym lately. I really have a love/hate relationship with it. Especially, lifting weights. I honestly don’t really enjoy the process but it always feels so great afterwards.
I got up this morning to drive the husband to work and instead of coming home and either heading back to bed or plopping my butt back on the couch I brought my gym stuff with me and hit up the treadmill and weight room right afterwards.
At the gym I did 30 mins on the treadmill – 60 seconds running at a 5.5-6.5 speed and an incline of 1.0-1.5 then 90 seconds of walking at 3.4 speed and 2.0-2.5 incline.
Exercise Weight Reps
- Dips N/A 10
- Push Ups N/A 8
- Triceps Extension 15lbs 10
- Lateral Raises 10lbs 10
- Leg Lifts N/A 10
- Plank N/A 25sec
- Side Leg Lifts N/A 12 (each side)
Overall it was a wonderful workout.
Afterwards, I headed to chapters to pick up a new book. No, I’m not finished my last one but I found this online for only 6.99 plus my discount card so how could I resist.
I really enjoyed her first book so I’ll definitely be tackling this one once I finish Portia de Rossi’s book.
While at Chapters I grabbed a grande, non-fat, extra hot vanilla latte from Starbucks.
My reward for this gym this morning.
After getting home and showering the first thing I did was make a smoothie. Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
I’m so glad it’s smoothie time again. I missed them in the winter.
In the blender – 1 banana, 1 cup of fresh strawberries, 1 tbsp of chia seeds, 3/4 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder and lots and lots of ice.
I actually and a second trip to the gym planned later with the husband. We need to start week two of C25K. Surprisingly, I’m actually looking forward to the second gym trip.
- Since I started using wordpress I’ve really been loving it. I’ve actually just been blogging right off their site and had no problems – until today. Does anyone know how to make a chart (like this one: http://bit.ly/ejopfl) not a graph in wordpress. I know maybe I should blog in Windows Live Writer but I just haven’t made it there yet – maybe I should.
- I just want to give a shout out to @PhotoLynda for mentioning Sunglasses and Pedicures in the SITS’s Daily Dress. You can check it out here: http://paper.li/PhotoLynda/sits Thanks Lynda!
