I wrote down some goal weights and either exceeded it by a lot or found it much harder than I expected.
Boy was I dying. The T-push ups were ridiculous - my left arm was failing me. But that's the point right? Work to failure.
Here's how I fared with weights:
- Goblet squat - 27.5 lbs
- Single-arm dumbbell swing - 20-22.5 lbs
- T-push up - 12.5 lbs because the 10s were circular
- Dumbbell row - 12.5-15 lbs
- Dumbbell side lunge & touch - 12-15 lbs, only 12s for one set because someone was using them
- Pushup position row - 12.5 lbs
- Dumbbell lunge & rotation - 25 lbs
- Dumbbell push press - 10-12.5 lbs, which was actually super difficult... :(
I took a post-workout sweaty picture. It is not cute. I have bags under my eyes and my hair is a mess - it's worse on top too. Look at that sweat still dripping on my lip. Success!
I got props from a trainer though, and she even taught me to do lateral/staggered squats.
With my success in cooking oats last night, I decided to try my hand at overnight oats in a jar.
I found a recipe from Fitting It All In that includes Greek yogurt for protein.
- 1 tbsp or so of sunflower butter
- 1/3 c. Quaker old-fashioned oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 c. almond milk, unsweetened
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 c. or less of Greek yogurt
That's okay though since I may have one of these to hold me over:
Last night, before Zumba, I dropped by REI and found Halo bars! They were all over Rhythm of My Mind, a new blog I frequent, and I couldn't find them at Whole Foods. I tried my luck a few stores over and found them! I can't wait to try them.
- After my 30 Day Shakedown, I'm going to try Jamie Eason's Live Fit Trainer. I read a bit about it and Fitting It All In really convinced me to give it a go. Clean eats and muscle building. Why not?
- If You Wouldn't Do Your Job For Free, Then Quit. More on that later. It's not my AM job but my PM job that I'm dreading right about now.
