Happy wednesday folks!
Officially 4 days till the Spartan Race. I’m not in the salon till 10.00 a.m. so, I woke up at 6, drove straight to gym.I recieved this email from from my online Spartan trainer, and this workout is gonna kick my ass! I won’t be doing my WOD on thurs (tomorrow) because I’ve got Zumba class. I just honestly don’t want to risk being any kind of sore or tight anywhere on my body before sunday.So no heavy lifting. Last time a trained for a race, I ran 6 miles the day before and somehow strained my achilles. So pissed. Dumb status. Not doing that this time. I really think it’s important to give your body a rest and allow your muscles time to recover. So this morning will be the last of the WOD. What an EXPERIENCE!
I swear after sunday I’m only doing zumba and yoga for a whole week. That’ll be nice. Then back to adding in the strength training.
So….Ideally, for a hardcore session, 5 circuit sets should be done with the exercises back-to -back and minimal rest. If you like structure, a breakdown on a good use of rest is supplied at the end of the workout. Each set should be at least 12 reps of continuous motion. Rest in between exercises rather than between reps.
Ok, Lets go….
Before going for this circuit, make sure you have a bench press and some room close by with dumbbells ready. On average three to five revolutions should take no more than forty minutes, but internally strive for the best time possible. This workout is an obstacle course for the body itself. Watch your form people!
I was at the gym a total of 1 hour & 15 min. Notice all of the bending down I was doing…well…GUESS WHAT HAPPENED.
I wanted to die!!! Felt absolutely no drift! Apparently before throwing them in the hamper last week, I left them sweaty on the floor for a couple hours, and I don’t know if any of you girls out there who have dogs, have ever experienced this, BUT….yeah…Willy completely ate an EFFING hole in the crotch!!! ahhhhhhhhI never noticed, washed them, picked them up this morning out of the drawer, no clue, and did my whole workout with the freakin hole. It wasn’t till I was stretching, with my ass facing the mirror that I noticed. I ran out of there so damn fast. The guy at the front desk was like “Bye, thank you” I just kept my headphones in and RAN! I posted this on my instagram as soon as I got in the car.
I needed CARBS! (good carbs of course)
These were just what I needed! This recipe is so easy, It took like 20 min all together. They were a treat. They are under the breakfast recipes!I enjoyed one of these along with my coffee w/ almond milk, got ready for work and headed out.
I wanted to take today’s post as a chance to wish my amazing brother a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Doesn’t he look like Clark Kent? (superman)
This was taken at my parents house the last time he came to visit.
I have no idea what we are doing in this pic but I thought it was cute.
Having a ball at Mango’s in Miami. We went there on a family trip a couple years ago, and I actually got him up to dance.
Btw…Holy TAN browndoggie face.
After work, I headed to Hollywood to meet up with a couple of girlfriends. We had planned for me to come and cut their hair, have a laugh, and enjoy a glass of wine. Laura (Gina Starr) a genius Dj, is always open for a super cool look. Her hair is like a violet, silver kind of color, which a co-worker of mine did. Looks amazing.I’ll post picks soon! Love cutting her hair. She always give me complete freedom to try new things. Gen, my other friend,client, and an amazing jewelry designer, also got a new super cool look. We cut her hair into a cute little A-line layered bob. She loved it. After we finished cutting, we finished our wine and I was ready to head home for some dinner. It was a long day. She surprised me with a little gift from her collection. Aren’t they fabulous? Her Etsy shop will be up soon, so be on the lookout! I’ll be supporting on my blog for sure. Her stuff is unique and feminine. Always with a bit of lace. A little vintage inspired too.
As soon as I got home, I took willy out, and headed inside for some yummy leftovers of almond crusted tilapia, spanish green beans, some roasted kabocha squash, and some sauteed spinach and zuchinni in garlic. It looks like my usual snacky plate. Lots of different flavors to get a perfect bite.
After dinner, I felt relaxed, put my PJ’son, and poured myself a glass of this wine. It was really good. Although I fell asleep working on the blog. On the couch of course, so I didn’t end up finishing it. Oh well, didn’t need the extra cals anyway…
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Are you one of those people who has to eat everything on their plate separately? Where nothing can touch each other? Fascinating.
FCAT OF THE DAY:
It’s freakin Chritmas in 3 1/2 weeks!
You know what that means…..
