Sooo…remember yesterday when I said it was my goal to work out five mornings in a row? I hope that part of that goal wasn’t that the workout had to be at the gym.
I set my alarm for 5:45 this morning, and per usual, I scoffed at the thought of actually getting up. 5:45 snoozed into 6:00…and I finally had to get up to use the bathroom. I padded back into bed, thinking oh well, I’ll just sleep until 7:00, I am too tired for the gym. I ended up laying in bed until 6:15 wide awake and finally thought, ‘Alright. I am up, I will at least lift weights.’ Andd I did!
It went a little something like this:
Quickie Workout: I broke down my exercises into 3 groups, completing each group 3 times.
- Group One
- Lunges (x 15 each leg)
- Piroutte Squats (x10)
- Pushups (x 10)
- Group Two
- Bicep Curls (x20)
- Front/Lateral Arm Raises (x10 each direction)
- Dead Lifts (x15)
- Group Three
- Tricep Kickbacks (x15)
- Chest Press (x 20)
- Flys (x15)
- Skull Crushers (x15)
Finally…i finished up with some planks, side plans and ab work.
Normally, I don’t feel like I get the same type of workout at home as I do in the gym, but today I was very sweaty and definitely felt the burn! I feel good today and even knocked 1 lb. off the scale!
This makes me down to 9 lbs total lost since about March – its been pretty inconsistent with dieting and exercise but I hope the next few weeks will be consistent and I can rack that number up to a whopping 15 lbs!
