The alarm went off again at 5am and I dragged myself out of bed for another workout before work. There’s nothing that gives me more motivation than knowing that I’ll have to be in a bikini in 15 days.
I’ve been kicking butt in the workout department this week and was doing great on eating clean..until last night.
The bf and I had Steak & Shake for dinner. Nope, we weren’t even drunk. We may be one of the few that enjoys some good old steak and shake on a sober week night. I blew my diet last night but I can’t stress about it too much.
With my S&S binge on my mind, I killed it in the gym this morning. Thank you Steak and Shake, I guess?
I completed Day 74 – Arms, Abs and Cardio. So far this may be my favorite circuit I’ve done. I love working arms and abs, or as Jamie Eason calls them glamour muscles 🙂
Here’s a look at my weight lifting circuit.
Each circuit took me less than 10 minutes to complete. The gym was empty and I had all the equipment laid out in front of me that I needed. I didn’t even have to go from one side of the gym to another to use a machine. This whole exercise just took some free weights, dumbbells, bench, and a mat.
I completed 3 sets of this circuit.
|Barbell Biceps Curl (EZ curl bar): 20|
|Lying triceps press: 20 reps|
|Alternating Dumbbell Curl: 20 reps|
|Overhead Dumbbell Extension: 20 reps|
|Bench Dip: 20 reps|
|Jackknife: 20 reps|
|Crunches: 20 reps|
Then I hopped on the treadmill for the cardio portion. The plan calls for 30-40 min of cardio.
I did a mix of HIIT intervals and jogging and tried to keep my heart rate in the 170’s. I kept this up for 35 minutes.
Then I finished off my workout with 10 minutes on the elliptical.
For some reason I can’t get myself to stay on the treadmill more than 35 minutes. I just get too bored!
The overall workout took 1:13 and I burned 730 calories. Not too shabby!
I got another co-worker (male) to start the LiveFit program!! I love this. I feel like we are starting a revolution here people! 🙂
My boss just said that I’m making our I.T. team the fittest I.T. team around! I don’t think that would be that hard though considering what the typical I.T. person looks like 🙂
He just told me how sore he is from day 1 and day 2. I told him to get used to it because I’ve been sore for almost 3 months now. I love that Jamie switches up the plan every 2 weeks to challenge your muscles in different ways. I actually like the feeling of being sore now because I know that It means I’ve rocked it in the gym.
Happy Friday Eve everyone!
