I refer, ahem, to 6am spinning classes. Wow, did my butt get kicked! My legs were screaming at the top of their lungs! I am definitely okay with a 5:15 am wake-up call and I am definitely okay with getting my weight lifting on. I am, however, not okay with keeping a steady heart rate of 160+ for 45 minutes. Oy.. I seriously need to work on some endurance!
Before spin class, I worked bi’s and back:
- Concentration DB curl: 10 reps x 3 with 15# DBs
- Kneeling bench row: 10 reps x 3 with 30# DBs
- Cable bicep curl: 10 reps x 3 at 30#
- Straight-arm cable pressdown: 10 reps x 2 at 50#; 10 reps at 60#
- Sadly, the weights ended there.. I didn’t have enough time before the 6am start time for spinning.
I was super hungry when I returned home. My pre-workout snack of 2 Suzie’s spelt cakes disappeared quickly. Whipped up a yummy plate of spinach/mushroom egg white puff + Flat Out & LC + teeny weeny grapes
It hit the spot! The rest of the morning was half-relaxation/half-laundry with a dash of cleaning. I had a more normal work schedule today of 1pm-7pm. I’m hoping this will last because it allows me to be at home to make my hubby some dinner. That’s not a luxury that we get more than once or twice a week. Yeah, it stinks, especially because I love to cook! Before work, I noshed on some Flat Out wrap goodness.
Flat Out with LC, curly leaf spinach & Morningstar Chick’n Strips Meal Starters + a gala
The gym tonight was insanely busy for a Tuesday. Clearly, the “resolutioners” are still sticking with it! I came home to a warm heating blanket to cuddle in before making spaghetti!
Dessert also hit the spot.
Light Rye Wasa + Walden Farms Calorie-Free Caramel Dip + hot cocoa with Unsweetened Almond Breeze
Dr. House is waiting for me to watch his shenanigans from last night. I must not keep him waiting!
