Monday! I couldn’t be LESS excited about this. For some reason last night I had the worst Sunday blues. I’ve been sad about it being Monday before, but this was full on dread, almost in tears, please don’t take my weekend away from me blues. Not sure why.
Maybe because yesterday was a good day! I woke up and had breakfast before hitting the gym early.
It was shoulder day and I switched it up! I found some new workouts on Bodybuilding.com to change my routine a little bit. It’s never good to do the same things over and over, you need to tweak things to make changes in your body. Some of them I put links to the exercises instead of me explaining!
Here’s my Shoulder routine:
- Anti gravity press, 10 lb bar, 15 reps x 4 sets
- Band pull apart, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Car Drivers, 25 lb plate 10 reps x 2 sets, then 10 lb plate 12 reps x 4 sets
- Clean and Press, Pyramid style, 44 lb bar, 6 reps, then 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 Phew!
- Dumbbell scaption, 8 lb weights, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Face pull, 40-50 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Iron cross, 8 lb weights, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Kettlebell see saw, 8 lb weights, alternating 16 reps x 4 sets
- Plate raise, 25 lbs, 10 reps x 3 sets
- Shoulder shrugs 35 lb weights, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Rear delt flys laying prone on the bench at an incline, 15 lb weights, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Upright rows, 25 lb plate, 12 reps x 2 sets with 8 sets of pulses, then 35 lb weights, 10 reps x 2 sets
- Pushups on narrow bench, knees on the bench too! 10 reps x 4 sets
Wow I didn’t realize I did all this!
My cardio included 30 minutes on the elliptical and then 15 minutes on the stairs.
In the car I inhaled 2 Quest bars. I love these! They are the purest protein bar out there. Just a few ingredients and 20-21 grams of protein per bar. The chocolate chip cookie dough is amazing.
When I got home I showered and got dressed for Mother’s Day! I planned on going to G-Mama and Pop Pops to let Phoebe play a bit, then we were headed to my sisters house for a little BBQ.
Phoebe gave me a Mother’s Day kiss and off we went
I bought G-Mama a new Pandora rope bracelet. She had one before that was pretty much Dunzo, so I bought the black triple rope and a new charm to go with her GMAMA blocks. This one was a mother daughter heart. Each person gets a red heart that says mother or daughter and together they clamp to make a bigger heart.
Once we arrived at my sisters house she had lots of food of course! Check it out
While dinner was being prepped Bella and I jumped on the trampoline. So much fun! And it burns calories. More cardio, score 🙂
Bell drove around in her hot wheels.
For dinner the guys had steaks, potatoes, shrimp salad, wings, etc. I stuck to chicken breast and fruit! Oh and some corn.
Later on when I came home I took some pics of Phoebe because she is so pretty from her bath! She’s actually cream again.
I hope you guys have a great day. I already cannot wait for the weekend again!

That food set up looks way better than what my family had lol! Aw, Phoebe is so cute 🙂 I hope today goes by fast for you!!
Haha Phoebe is nothing but trouble.
Hi!, I’ve ordered some quest bars online, just waiting for them to be delivered! Can’t wait, I’ve heard such good things about them. What are your favorite flavours? I wish my gym had a stair/step machine, your workout looks intense, well done. Tam
Cookie dough is the BEST. It’s a new flavor and def tastes like a cookie. I didn’t care for the PB&J. You can’t taste the J!
Looks like a awesome day!! The top looks great! I have to say the quest bar looks delish – sometimes it’s hard to find a good tasting protein bar. I LOVE bodybuilding.com I like the fact you can click on a body part, and it shows specific things for it! Great website.
Me too! Yes try the cookie dough one! A-MAZING
I love your Pandoras! My bracelet is the standard silver chain, but you really rock the rope! Also, I am dying to try the Quest protein bars! Where do you buy yours and how do you incorporate them into your diet/how frequently do you eat them?
Thanks! Love the rope 🙂 I bought mine at GNC this week because they were buy 3 get 1 free and then they have the gold membership card FREE this week! Usually is 15 bucks. I either eat them during my work mornings to get me going or if I have to go somewhere right after the gym and I am not going straight home I have them right after!
