I really don't want to talk about my weekend. Heh. Let's just say that I really should buy Jelly Belly's and that eating the entire thing over one evening and one day does NOT make for a happy tummy.
But - it's Monday! I am SO ready for this week. I sat down last night and mapped out my workouts. I also made a plan for the food - so I'm ON IT.
I got up this morning right at 4:00AM (Yay!) with help from my workout partner. Ok - HE got out of bed right at 4:00AM and I drug my sorry ass out because he had. That's one of the many reasons I love him. He could do it a little LESS cheerfully, but hey - we can't all be perfect now can we?
On the way to the gym I already started to second guess my workout plan. "What if I burn out?" "Do I really want to get used to two cardio sessions a day?" "Am I overtraining". "Are my feet going to hold up to that much work?" I finally told that little doubting voice in my head to SHUT UP! and just went in there and DID it. I Figure I can try this for a week and that should give me enough info to see if I can continue next week. So far - so good.
Workout today was GREAT - I felt SO good!
I started with 20 minutes of HIIT - ran over 1.5 miles - then...
Chest day - whoop!
Flat Barbell Press(plus bar): 80 x 6 / 80 x 6 / 80 x 6
I'm doing a happy dance over that one! 80 lbs! I may reach my goal of 120 sooner then I thought!
Incline Dumbbell Press: 50 x 6 / 45 x 6 / 45 x 6
First of all let me say - WHOOP!!! I did 50 lbs - I did 50 lbs. *insert happy dance here* I probably could have done a second set but... After I finished the first set I thought I would 'save' myself the 'hassle' of picking those big ol' weights up again. So I sat and held them during my 'rest' period. Uh - it's a LOT of work to balance a pair of 50 lb dumbbells on the your knees for two whole minutes! By the time I tried to do the second set - I was TOAST.
Flye: 30 x 6 / 30 x 6 / 30 x 6
That's right - I went up on EVERY excercise! whooo! hooo!
Cable crunch: 190 x 15 / 195 x 15 / 195 x 15
Knee Lifts: 10 / 10
So I Totally wiped out my abs with the cable crunch - I couldn't even do LEG lifts after - I had to do knee lifts instead - whew!
Incline Crunchs: Highest Setting - 25 / 25
A little stretching and I was done! Now I just need add 30 minutes of steady state cardio (walking) to my day and *poof* I'm done!
Food will be lower in carbs today - need to 'clense' a bit after the BAD BAD weekend. By 'lower' I mean I'm going to try to get my carbs from all 'green' sources - Lots and LOTS of veggies. Wednesday I'll add some 'white' carbs back in - then back to green carbs every day except my free day.
Now I've got to go eat!
(wanted to note: weight today 205.5 - I expect to see progress by Friday!)
