Working out my legs has always been my least favorite thing to do at the gym. Oddly enough, I am finding myself really enjoying legs day when I follow the leg workout detailed in Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp.
The leg workout for week two of the program doesn’t require the use of extremely heavy weights but incorporates supersets that begin with a “pre-exhaustion” exercise to fully fatigue the muscles.
The first superset had me doing a wall sit to fatigue before moving onto another strength exercise.
When Ryan saw me propped up against the wall, he said, “Those are hard. I haven’t done a wall sit since high school soccer and hope to never do another one in my life.”
Breakfast this morning included scrambled eggs with onion and zucchini.
Plus a toasted bagel topped with Swiss cheese that photographed terribly but tasted great.
After breakfast, Ryan and I took Sadie on a one mile walk around the neighborhood.
We saw a ton of teeny tiny toads and, as Ryan said, our walk was like a real life version of the videogame Frogger, only we weren’t the frog (obviously), but the ones trying desperately not to step on the itty bitty toads that basically blended into road.
Since I owned a pet toad as a child (affectionately named Big Guy), I feel oddly attached to the tiny toads and want to make sure they’re all safe. I think I yelled out to Ryan to watch his step at least five times. At one point I did some crazy spastic freak out move to avoid three tiny toads that were so well camouflaged that I didn’t notice them until they all jumped at the same time. Safe!
I’m off to write through the morning before heading out to a meeting at 11 a.m. See ya after lunch!
