With that blog post title, I bet you think I’m going to talk about last night’s episode of The Bachelorette.
Well, I’m not.
Not for long, anyway.
Let’s just say I found it awfully boring even though I think Emily is a sweetheart. None of the guys are grabbing my attention just yet, but I’m sure that will change as the season continues.
Let’s just say Sadie agrees with my analysis wholeheartedly.
I took that picture with my phone last night as I was watching the show. Clearly Sadie is less than enamored with The Bachelorette.
It was inevitable.
I knew I’d wake up sore this morning following yesterday’s heavier-than-normal LiveFit chest and triceps workout. It’s a good sore though and I have feeling I’m going to be sore after today’s back and biceps workout as well.
Those of you who have completed (or are in the process of completing) the Jamie Eason LiveFit Trainer program that I am very loosely following (just the workouts, not the meal plan) mentioned that you felt sore after nearly every workout and I can see why. Heavy weights are legit!
The first four weeks of the LiveFit program call for the complete elimination of all cardio, but since I’m not following the program completely, I am not forgoing cardio. I like warming up my body with 20 minutes on the elliptical before nearly every strength or circuit workout.
When I arrive at the gym at 5:20 a.m., I’m still half asleep and Ryan and I both agree that the 20 minutes we spend on the elliptical helps wake us up and get us in the zone for the rest of our workout. I didn’t want to give that up and since the strength workouts during the first week don’t last more than 40 minutes or so, I am keeping my 20 minutes of cardio. I’ve never really been an all or nothing type of person and want to keep my workouts balanced, so that’s the deal for the first week. What a rebel.
Breakfast today was another breakfast cookie!
Anytime chocolate and peanut butter find their way into my breakfast, I am a happy camper.
Question of the Morning
- Have you ever completely eliminated something food or fitness related from your life?
I used to be a cardio queen at the gym and rarely incorporated strength training into my workouts. Now I can’t imaging a workout routine without strength training!
