I must admit I am feeling good this morning. Positive. Yesterday’s plan of action went well. I ate great food and I worked out hard. The scale complied with my wishes and showed a loss, too. I am still not back to 199.2, but I am ever so close.
This morning I ate a small banana and had oatmeal with cinnamon and cloves. I harvested a bell pepper from my garden this morning, so I am looking forward to snack time.
As for my scheduled workout:
-grand plie squats with rotation
-curtsy squat with leg lifts
-deadlifts with barbell
-front lunge with push off
-alternate deadlifts with kettlebell
-glute bridge march
-calf raises on step
-bent leg pumps
-weighted russian twists
-weighted raised-legs crunches
That will be another hour or so in the gym for me this evening. I am seriously looking forward to it.
In other news, Maggie (my cousin) finally got a job last night…working at my gym! She is so super excited (this is her first job…ever), and I am thoroughly excited for her! She will only be working part-time for now (M-F 5 to 8 PM). That will; however, give me an excuse to be at the gym Monday through Friday from 5 to 8 PM, though, right?!
How is your day shaping up?
I just recently got a kettle bell and I’m trying to find creative ways to use it. Not very used to it yet. Maybe you could have some suggestions, with links to videos/illustrations of how to use it?
I’m certainly not a kettlebell expert…far from, in fact. However, a few good books I have come across:
The Swing! (by Tracy Reifkind)
Ultimate KB Workouts for Women (by Lauren Brooks)
Body Sculpting w/ KB for Women (by Lorna Kleidman)
Hope that helps some! 🙂
