I’ve been crazy busy since…I don’t even know. Between school and a family emergency I was MIA from my fitness routine for 2 days in a row. I got back into the grove today, taking some of my homework to read at the gym. I must have looked corny as hell reading Sister Carrie on the elliptical, but you know what? I don’t care!
1 mile power walk with arm jabs
2.5 mile run (hit incline at some point for a break. Went up to an incline of 4.5 and walked at 4.5mph)
Crunches on abench
Leg lifts on abench
Back extensions with 10 pound weights in each hand
Side twist with 8 pound medicine ball
30 minutes on elliptical (20 minutes was on program 6, which works the glutes. 10 minutes were performed on manual.)
Rotary Twister with 25 pound weight (this was pretty easy, so I think it’s time to increase my reps or weight.)
Hanging knee raises
*Hours later I did some more toning work for my legs, butt, abs and arms.
Breakfast- Trail mix and soy latte
Lunch: No lunch today. I was in such a rush to get to class that I even forgot to grab myself some water. I guess I paid for it because later in the day I drank half a can of gingerale. I occasionally will have diet soda (yes, yes, liquid death), but I don’t remember the last time I had more than a sip of the regular stuff.
Dinner: Salad made with mixed greens, 1/4 cup of brown rice, chopped avocado, hummus, and topped with cooked broccoli and tofu with onions, (courtesy of my mom who still makes me food to take back home whenever I come to visit:)
Dessert: 2 Reeces pb cups
