The lack of a jacket, perhaps?
Yes, it is the week of Christmas and no jacket is necessary today. A simple sweater will do. Though I am a warm-weather girl through and through I always hope for a cold Christmas. Being all bundled up just adds to the holiday magic. I’m crossing my fingers for a cold front!
I must admit that the warmer weather made my morning walk with Sadie much more pleasant. I leashed her up for a quick walk after Ryan and I were done with our workouts.
We opted to sleep in a bit this morning, which meant I missed my usual 5:45 a.m. BodyPump class. Instead I did a full-body weights workout that looked like this:
- 20 min. elliptical
Three sets of 15 reps of the following:
- Step ups (15 reps on each leg, then switch), 15 lbs.
- Shoulder raises, 10 lbs.
- Deadlifts, 30 lbs.
- Bicep curls, 15 lbs.
- Tricep dips, Body weight
- Standing side bends, 25 lbs.
- Leg extensions, 135 lbs.
- Exercise ball hamstring curls, Body weight
- Exercise ball crunches, 50 + 20 concentrating on left side & 20 concentrating on right side
Though I adore BodyPump (and now Gina does, too!), it felt great to do my own thing today. I think I may try to mix it up a bit moving forward. We’ll see how I feel!
For some reason I was really excited for my yogurt bowl this morning.
Maybe it was because I planned to include these Italian cookies in the mix?
Along with the cookie crumbs, I also included a sliced Gala apple in the bowl.
Now it’s time to work. It’s my last day before I’m off for the holidays.
