I am totally itching for summer to get here lately. Even though this has been the most amazing winter of my life (weather wise), I just can’t wait for spring and summer! Spring is my favorite time of the year. I feel like everyone’s moods change for the better as the weather gets warmer.
I walked up to my house yesterday and saw our first flowers blooming!! Woohoo!!! Bring on the spring flowers baby!
So exciting and pretty 🙂 That is one of the best things about being a homeowner. I love seeing flowers pop up throughout my yard. It’s like a little surprise every day. Thank you to the previous owners of the house because they planted a ton of surprises for us every year 🙂 We just have to maintain it..which is actually VERY hard.
I’ve been in training for the past couple days so I haven’t been able to eat that great. Yesterday I had oats for breakfast, rice cakes for morning snack, turkey sub for lunch, almonds for afternoon snack and another turkey sub for dinner. Not terrible but could be better.
I hit the gym last night and trained back, biceps and abs.
From what I can remember, here’s what I did…
- Overhand pull-ups on smith machine (3 sets of 10)
- Back Superset:
- Bent Over Rows (3 sets of 10) @ 30 lbs
- Low Rows (3 sets of 12) @ 35-40lbs
- Barbell Curls (3 sets of 12) @ 30lbs
- Cable Curls (3 sets of 12)
- Roman chair leg lifts (3 sets of 15)
- Crunches on Bosu Ball (3 sets of 20)
I then did 20 min of sprints on the treadmill. I did 9mph sprints. I had never done a whole 20 minutes at 9mph (usually I do 8mph or change it up while I’m running). I liked it..but it was pretty tough.
I ended up running about 1.32 miles in 20 minutes and burning 215 calories.

Gotta love HIIT training!
hah..sorry. I know that pic was random but I liked it. I recently saw Lou Ferrigno (The Hulk) at the Arnold Classic. I wonder if he actually likes HIIT? I doubt it for some reason.
Happy Friday Eve!!
