I must begin this post with some blog logistics…
To those of you who were seeing the “Rain Ain’t So Bad” post from last September yesterday and this morning, I apologize! Apparently there was an issue with my site redirect link from my old peanutbutterfingers.wordpress.com blog. Note to self: Renew site redirect subscriptions.
Anyway, all should be well again! If you happen to subscribe to my blog and my posts weren’t showing up in your Google Reader before, hopefully they are now. If not, you may wish to resubscribe which you may do by clicking here.
And thanks for reading. I kind of love you.
Back to the fun stuff!
Today’s workout had me pumpin’ some iron!
I seriously love strength training. It is so much more entertaining than cardio for me and I love feeling my muscles scream back at me. It’s hard to believe I used to be a cardio queen.
I did 25 minutes of cardio on the elliptical before heading into the weight room to complete three sets of 15 repetitions of the following exercises:
- Leg extensions
- Leg press
- Incline bicep curls
- Front shoulder raises
- Tricep dips
- One-legged leg extensions
- Bridges (aka the most awkward move at the gym)
- Tricep pull-downs
- Overhead press
- 60 second plank
It was a doozie! I typically hate working out my legs (I’m such a baby when it comes to squats and lunges), but after nearly a week of no leg extensions, leg presses or heavy-weighted squats, it felt good to work ‘em out again.
I actually have a little story to share with you guys about an exposing event that happened during my workout today.
Hiney exposure. (Y) <—It’s a hiney! Haha! (I swear I’m 26.)
Anyway, as I sat on the leg extension machine, I scooted my butt back, but my shorts and legs were so sweaty that my shorts stayed in place while my body kept moving.
In other words, the guy sitting on the leg press machine behind me got an eyeful of tooshie.
And I was totally wearing my “Sexy Little Bride” underwear that I got during my bachelorette party.
I’m just hoping my pants weren’t down long enough for him to read anything.
Lunch? Snack? Eat Everything in Sight?
I would take you though my lunch today, but I ate just about everything in sight standing up in the kitchen like a maniac and didn’t snap any photos because I’m pretty sure three handfuls of blueberries, a couple servings of pretzel thins and crab dip and half a box of Junior Mints from the freezer (they’re so good cold) were consumed in 0.5 seconds. Ooph.
And then there was this:
Hey, at least I used a spoon, right?
Today is definitely one of those days where I feel like I can eat everything in sight and still not feel full. It’s a bottomless pit kind of day. Hoping my appetite and normal hunger cues return to normal by dinner time, otherwise I may be raiding Ryan’s mom’s pantry of all of her ice animal crackers when we arrive in Sarasota tonight.
