Made it to the gym yesterday morning. I was planning to try out a new gym because it had a swimming pool. I arrived and was immediately concerned. The place was HUGE and very 'fancy' looking. When I checked in my concerns were confirmed. My membership didn't cover this gym -- ah well. They let me workout at the the place "just this once" and I got my leg workout in at least.
Barbell Squats: 5 reps x 160lbs, 5 x 175, 8 x 185
Stiff Leg Deadlift: 5 x 125, 5 x 145, 10 x 155
Lying Hamstring Curl: 5 x 60, 5 x 70, 12 x 80
However, the workout wasn't without it's own issues. My brain was so foggy that twice I tried to lift a bar that had different weights on each side... I felt like an idiot, but finished and built some muscle I'm sure.
Food for the day was a little odd.
I started the day with my normal cup of bacon and eggs. For lunch I had an amazing salad of spinach, carrots, almonds, olives and some marinated artichoke hearts.
It was so pretty and good!
I had also brought a can of chicken breast so I ate that too. Once I was done - I was stuffed and really not feeling that well. That unwell feeling stuck with me the rest of the day. Slightly nauseous and burping 'chicken' - bleh. I didn't feel like any dinner and didn't eat any.
Today I woke up and hit the WW scale. Same weight for the third week in a row - bleh again.
I came home and had some yummy eggs. Later in the day I had a few pieces of a home made paleo "Candybar" (cocoa, coconut oil, ground nuts and coconut flakes mixed together and stored in the fridge) to satisfy my sweet tooth.
By afternoon I was ready to go for a run so I grabbed my running partner once again
and we were off.
I strugged. My legs hurt from my workout yesterday and I generally felt like doo. I didn't know if I was going to finish the first mile, much less all 2.75. But I kept on, telling myself 'just a little more' and eventually, I finished!
2.75 miles in 35 minutes - 2 minutes faster the almost the same route on Wednesday.
Dinner - I had some chicken set out but wasn't sure what to do with it. With a little creativity I managed to put together some amazing Orange Saffron Chicken (recipe via the link).
