Today I woke up to a pain in my ass. Literally. I did a pretty intense superset-style weights workout yesterday that left the tops of my glutes, my chest, and my back siiiiiinging the chorus today.
Here’s what I did:
|1a.||Walking lunges length of gym||2 sets w/ 25 lb plates|
|1b.||Overhead press||2 sets w/ 15 lb. dumbbells|
|2a.||Single leg stiff deadlift||2 sets w/ 35 lb. kettlebell|
|2b.||Single point row||2 sets w/ 25 lb. dumbbells|
|3a.||Deadlifts||3 sets w/ 45 lb. olympic bar + 20 lbs|
|3b.||Lat pulldowns||3 sets w/ lat pulldown machine @ 35 lbs|
|4a.||Prisoner jump squats||2 sets 10 reps|
|4b.||Pushups||2 sets 10 reps|
|5.||Swiss ball jack knifes|
Ahhhh it was a good workout. Wait ‘til you see what I had as a post workout snack…
well, an epic fail of HEAB’s protein ice cream (I neeeed a vitamix. NEED. Hear that, husband?! 😉 )
Sarah over at Lara Bar sent me the new flavors to try out, and Carrot Cake tastes amazing! If you liked the tropical flavor from last year, you’ll love the Carrot Cake flavor! The only thing I wasn’t so sure about it was that it tasted more like pineapple than carrot cake. It was still amazing, nonetheless, and only stood about 10 seconds against me. Its ingredients are: dates, almonds, walnuts, raisins, pineapple, coconut, carrots, cinnamon, and coconut oil. Yummy stuff! 😀
Yesterday was pretty much an insanely busy day that started with a pre-dawn client, followed by four more. In between clients, I had to take Niko to the groomers, work a little at home on BIC stuff, and get ready to host bunco!
I took the easy way out.
When in doubt, order Jimmy John’s. Life philosophy lesson right there folks. Only on RAN.
I also took the easy way out for dessert. Janetha told me this dessert was easy and 100% guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. It’s a good thing I trust her.
I made the crust…
And watched it disappear before my eyes!
DEFINITEY a crowd pleaser. Janetha, so many people loved this!
While making, I munched on some veggies and hummus:
Bunco was a blast, and I ended up winning my money back for being the biggest loser (most losses,) wahoo!
Today’s supposed to be my long run day: 9 miles. I’ve yet to find my iPod (tear…) so my question for you all today is this:
What’s worse: running outdoors for 9 miles without an iPod or running on a treadmill for 9 miles while watching your show? I can’t decide! It wasn’t bad for eight miles on a treadmill last weekend, but I don’t know if I can do it twice!
Stay tuned on Monday morning for an amazing blog anniversary giveaway (yes, I can still celebrate from last week! 🙂 ) Hint: It has something to do with what I reviewed above 😉
