Yesterday’s gym experience was a pretty crappy one. I got to my gym and it was a straight up construction zone! Lifestyle Family Fitness was recently bought by Lifetime Total Fitness and they are now starting the renovations.
I walked in the door to the gym and the strong scent of fumes was almost unbearable. It caught me off guard. While walking to the locker room, I had to avoid walking through areas that were taped off with caution tape and watch out for men on little mini trucks that were moving throughout the gym.
Seriously Lifetime? You couldn’t have closed the gym or warned us of this? I couldn’t stand the smell. I am the type of person that gets nauseous when something smells really strong. I have a very sensitive sniffer!
I did get a bit used to it by the end but it was just not a great workout!
I did manage to complete Day 8 on Lee Labrada’s Lean Body Trainer.
It was leg day. Here’s what I did…
|Leg Press: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Leg Extensions: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Seated Leg Curls: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Straight Leg Dumbbell Deadlift: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Seated Calf Raise: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Standing Calf Raise: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Ab Crunch Machine: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
|Hanging Leg Raises: 2 sets of 10-12 reps, 1 set to failure|
I had never done the ab crunch machine before and it was harder than I thought it would be! It was quite a workout. It was the one where you hold on to bars above you and also have your legs under a bar. You sit upright and then pull everything inwards. I’ll definitely be doing that one again!
After a successful workout (minus the stench in the gym) I successfully chowed down on some pepperoni pizza and bread sticks. Life is all about balance..right?
I watched The Bachelor last night while I was eating. First, I want to say that I have met Ben before. In college I went on spring break in Lake Havasu and I ended up hanging out with him and a couple of his buddies on their private yacht. I wish I would’ve known then that he’d be The Bachelor now! Second…did you see Jamie’s awkard kiss?!?!?! She was the most awkward human being ever. Even Ben said something along the lines of “You’ve got to be kidding me right now”. How embarrasing!!!!!!
Poor Ben! If you didn’t see this clip, you can see it on ABC.com.
Have a great Wednesday!
