Before Body Pump, Mal and I shared a banana and a bottle of vanilla-flavored Frappuccino Light that the nice people at Starbucks sent me to sample. For the most part, I liked this coffee drink. But, not surprisingly, it tasted pretty artificial. 😕 I guess I just prefer my homemade iced coffee with vanilla soy milk instead. 😉
Body Pump was GREAT today! 😀 My legs haven’t been sore after class in a couple of weeks now, so I increased my squat track weight by 5 pounds.
Don’t these double 10-pound weights look badass? My legs were Jello by the end of the squat track, but it felt awesome.
Here are my current Body Pump weights (includes 3-pound bar):
- Warm-up: 23 lbs.
- Squats: 43 lbs.
- Chest: 23 lbs.*
- Deadlifts: 33 lbs.
- Triceps: 18 lbs.
- Biceps: 18 lbs.
- Lunges: 38 lbs.
- Shoulders: 23 lbs.
- Abs: body weight
- Cool down: none
* I dropped my weight after realizing that a wider grip on the bar makes the chest track more challenging.
Grrrrrrrrrrrr! I’m a beast!
From the menu, I ordered my favorite breakfast: 2 eggs, homefries, toast, and coffee (aka the #3).
I usually get raisin toast with the #3, but this morning, I changed things up with rye toast. I recently read that rye (and pumpernickel) bread have more fiber than whole wheat bread, so it helps keep you satisfied longer. Might as well give it a try, right? So far, my stomach is staying full!
I added some ketchup and hot sauce to my homefries, which, in my opinion, is the best way to eat them! 😉
Mal and I just got back from a 40-minute walk with Murphy, so I need to shower and get down to business. The weather is gorgeous, so hopefully, I get bust out some work and enjoy the rest of the day.
