Ladies and gentlemen, I am over the hump. I worked my butt off all morning long and now I’m cruising through until the end of the day.
I totally demolished my To Do list this morning. I’m all about Google Calendar when it comes to scheduling, but for To Do lists, paper + pen is the only way to go. I love crossing items off my list. There’s nothing like the physical act of crossing it off. Actually, I enthusiastically scribble them out! 😉 It feels so good.
So, I had a nice surprise at Body Pump this morning: the new release of Body Pump 75!!! Apparently, my gym launched it last week. I have no idea how I missed it, but I was psyched when the instructor announced the new workout to the class this morning.
- Warm-up: Typical warm-up. Nothing crazy.
- Squats: Very long track. I felt the burn.
- Chest: Ended with push ups.
- Back: Weirdly slow. Not a fan.
- Triceps: Skull crushers, rows, and extensions.
- Biceps: Sort of tough. I rested a few times.
- Lunges: Ends with squats, so go heavier on the weight.
- Shoulder: Fun! You won’t be bored!
- Abs: Better than 74!
- Cool-down: Adam Lambert’s “What Do You Want from Me.” Wasn’t this a recent track?
All in all, I’m a fan of Body Pump 75. I always start out feeling so-s0 about new releases and liking them more as the weeks go on. I already like 75, so I’m sure I’ll love it soon enough.
I ate lunch early today– pretty much right after I got home from the gym. I swear, I’m always more hungry on Body Pump days. Must be that metabolism boost from strength training! 😉
Mal cooked American Chop Suey for dinner last night, so I paired the leftovers with a big salad topped with crumbled feta and balsamic vinegar.
I finished off lunch with a piece of Chocolate Chip Squash Bread. Delish!
Even though I just ate lunch, I’m already thinking about an afternoon snack. My mom gave me the most delicious-looking caramel apple from her work, and I cannot wait to eat it. Caramel apples are one of my favorite fall treats– besides apple crisp and pumpkin everything! 😉
Seriously, I want to eat this NOW!
Eggland’s Best Goes Pink
Eggland’s Best has gone pink to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure! In addition to donating $50,000 to the cause, Eggland’s Best will display Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s ribbon logo (along with a pink version of the “EB” stamp) on all of their eggs during the fall of 2010. Cool, right?
I had the opportunity to get involved with this promotion by writing a guest post for the Eggland’s Best blog about running the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure. It was my first ever 5K and it inspired many more road races for me.
