First of all, thank you guys SO MUCH for your support on my post the other day. I got so many messages and Facebook comments about it. It helps to know I have a team behind me that’s cheering for me! Now I just gotta do the work and not embarrass myself…. 😀
Wednesday, I got a really great Leg & Back workout in. I started with heavy hip thrusts and did 3 sets at 275 lbs. I got 5 reps, 3 reps, and 3 reps respectively, which is a new PR for me. Previously, I could only get 3 reps at 275, so my first set broke a record! I’m getting really strong and absolutely loving it.
I started my morning with a continental (an american with steamed milk added. I opt for almond milk), an apple, and this messy deliciousness:
It doesn’t look pretty, but it tastes good! Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage, mexican cheese, and an over-easy egg on top. I cracked the egg yolk and devoured this in about 15 seconds.
I’ve got some work to do and a few meetings today, and then I’ll be hitting the gym for another leg workout. I’ll be doing:
- Squats (heavy)
- Hip Thrusts(moderate)
- Deadlifts (light)
- Back Extensions (light)
- Banded Hip Abduction (light)
- Leg Extensions (moderate)
- Hamstring Curls (moderate)
Oddly enough, I’m trying to build out my quads a bit. My butt is THERE, but my quads aren’t quite where I want them, so I’m trying to hit them a little harder than usual.
-Make a yummy dinner
-Do puzzles on my favorite app: Jigsaw Puzzle (if you’re a nerd, have an iPad, and love puzzles THIS APP IS FOR YOU. I’m obsessed)
-Hang out with this guy
I’ll be heading to a baby shower tomorrow and then the LA Fit Expo on Sunday! I’ll be sure to snap some photos. 🙂
Have a great weekend people!
