Friday was pretty much the only productive day of my weekend. I left work early and did Day 53 – Shoulders. I had a great workout. I love when you feel strong and are able to keep pushing yourself more and more. That’s how I felt Friday. It was also probably because it was Friday and I was in a good mood.
I still can’t build up muscle in my shoulders. It’s been a very stubborn area for me in this program. I may decide to swith up my plan and do shoulders twice and legs once in phase 3.
After lifting, I tried out a new treadmill for my cardio. It was a higher tech one that allowed you to put in your target heart rate and what speed you wanted to go. I put in 140 (I think) and set the speed to 4.0. Then the treadmill would automatically increase and decrease the incline based on my heart rate. It was awesome because the slight increase and decrease in incline went almost unnoticed because I was never in charge of changing it.
I know I”m not supposed to do any harder cardio in this second phase but at the end of my 30 min, I really just wanted to do a 5 minute run…so I did. I just set the treadmill to 7 with no incline and ran for 5 min. It felt good to get a quick sweat in.
The workout was pretty fast. I think my lifting only took 35 minutes. I also think it went so fast because I was taking less rest in between sets and reps.
As for the rest of my weekend….welll…umm…I didn’t workout again. I felt like I needed a workout break. 6 days of training in a week is very draining and I was just not feeling up to working out. I’ll be back hitting the gym hard this week. I’ll be entering the scary Phase 3 this week so it’s a BIG WEEK!
Friday night I stayed in and Saturday night I went out with a bunch of fraternity dudes I know from home and college. I was just one of the dudes 🙂 I can’t complain…I never mind being the only girl! We went out to a couple bars and caught up over many brewskis.They were all in the same frat house in college but it’s so funny to see them all Wifey’d up now. So funny how times change.
Off topic but..I’ve been totally a shopaholic lately. I’m so guilty for online shopping a ton lately and loving so many sweater dresses and sweaters/legging/boot combos I’ve seen. I totally rocked some black jeggings on Saturday night and I loved them!!! I wish I had a picture of them but I didn’t want to make a group of guys take a picture of my “cute” outfit. They probably would have looked at me and laughed. I seriously need to start focusing on buying Christmas presents for other people right about now..and STOP BUYING FOR MYSELF! I hate when I do this! I usually buy one thing for someone else..then 4 for myself…one for you…4 for me 🙂 eh…oh well.
Here is a picture from last weekend. I’m obsessed with this black Express Dress I wore. I even bought it in another because I liked it so much. It’s so comfy, flattering and you can dress it up or down for work or for a night out. Very versatile!
Also…when I was shopping on Saturday with Ryan…I was trying on work pants and he asked what size I was. I told him and he grabbed that size and a size lower. I told him not to even bother to grab the lower size. Well…what do you know…apparently I’ve lost more weight and inches than I thought because I easily fit in a smaller size! I’ve never fit into that size!!! SOOOOO EXCITING!!!
