Run Girl Run
Happy 3 day weekend to everyone! Well 4 for me, sorry to rub that in but I work super long hours and I’m up at 4:30 so it balances out 🙂
Yesterday Phoebe and I slept in. It was wonderful. Then she jumped on my chest, kicked her little back paws and said Mom, get the heck out of the bed. I swear this dog is one step closer every day to saying real words.
After coffee (I love it, I don’t care!) and a massive fluff, we played around with some pre-gym pictures. It only started because the little thing kept photo bombing me! She’s always under foot, rugrat!
Then I grabbed her and said okay, you want to be in the picture? Be in the picture!
Tongue out as usual…
My gym session was KILLER. I was there almost 2 and a half hours. I know this sounds extreme, and I rarely do that, but I just couldn’t stop! When I got there only ONE out of 4 stair masters was working. I was not very happy about that. Actually only 2 machines had signs on them, so when I started using one and it almost killed me because it went at warped speed and I flew off, you better believe I ran right to the manager and complained. So dangerous! That guy probably hates me, the only time I talk to him is when I am whining about a machine not working. Later I found out it had been that way a while and no one had said anything. Why would you not report it? Someone could easily get hurt!
So I went downstairs and hit the treadmill. I thought okay let me run. I don’t ever do more than a mile or so, or some HIIT sprints, but I was in one of those moods where I just needed to run off some stuff. So I ran over 3 miles (I could’ve done more), but I walked to 4 miles and then went to lift 🙂
I always run at a 1% incline, it’s the closest thing to real pavement.
I did some back and shoulder work. Here was my workout:
- Lat pulldowns, 50 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Upright rows, 40 lb barbell, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Plate front raises, 35 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Shoulder press, 40 lb barbell, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Narrow rows, 25 lb kettles, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Deep squats, unweighted, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Deadlifts, 135-145 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Shoulder shrugs, 135-145 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Rear delt flys, 25 lbs, 10 reps x 3 sets
- Side bends, 25 lbs, 15 reps x 3 sets each side
Then I saw a stair master open, the only one… and hit that for an extra cardio boost! My legs are going to be dead in a day or so after the run then the stairs. I felt my quads an hour after the workout!
Lets talk about my hair in this picture below… wow.. whoville!
At home I dug into that vegan fudge! It turned out pretty good, and definitely hits the spot.
This Vegan Fudge is HEALTHY! It has 66 calories per piece and is GOOD fat. Click the picture to find out how to make it 🙂
Tomorrow is September 1st (wow time flies) and is day 1 of the Beautiful Booty Booster. I plan on making a calendar, but in the meantime here is the first workout for that booty!
Of course this is just the bonus workout on top of what I normally do! I need my cardio and stuff 🙂 Let’s do this!
I’m also happy to share that one of clients who purchased a custom meal plan is down 7 lbs! I told you guys it’s not hard, it’s just sticking to a routine. She’s been loving the goat cheese pita pizzas too. See you can have pizza and still lose weight 🙂 So if you’re interested in me making a plan for you head over here to learn more about it!
Enjoy your holiday weekend. More recipes coming soon. I’m finally back in the game!
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
