My upper body feels slightly like jell-o right now.
Whew! I’ll take that as a good sign that this morning’s upper body workout went well. On tap for today from the Best Body Bootcamp I’m following was an upper body superset workout with cardio intervals. In addition to the six moves upper body moves that were included for today, I also threw in a few moves from my Shredded Shoulders workout…it all looked a little somethin’ like this:
- 5 minute warm up on treadmill
- Superset #1 – focus on back (with 4 sets)
- 5 minutes elliptical
- Superset #2 – focus on chest (with 4 sets)
- 5 minutes treadmill
- Superset #3 – focus on shoulders (with 4 sets)
- 5 minutes elliptical
- Superset #4 – more shoulder blasting (with 4 sets)
- 5 minute cool down on elliptical
Great workout, indeed!
Last Night’s Dinner
How’s that for colorless? Yikes…
Although it may look a little bland on color, it certainly was not bland on flavor! I picked up a London Broil this week (on sale), to incorporate as part of my Lean Beef Challenge. Jay took care of everything with it – marinating, grilling, slicing – and he once again proved the fact that he is the only one allowed to cook and prepare lean red meat. Just fabulous.
On the side, I roasted (and slightly burned) some cauliflower and a batch of roasted red potatoes, which we simply cubed up and seasoned with a little Garlic Gold olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Definitely a “meat and potatoes” (or as my grandma has always called it, “padaydas”) kinda meal. The man of the house was happy.
As I was rummaging through the fridge this morning after getting back from my shift at work, I came across some turkey bacon that I totally forgot was even in there (don’t you hate/love when that happens?). After seeing that it was still good, I got to work on making a turkey bacon, egg, and cheese English muffin sandwich.
Whole wheat English muffin, egg, Swiss cheese, turkey bacon, raspberry jam.
And even though it’s Friday, I opted to skip out on Coffee Friday and just enjoyed it at home because I have been loving it THAT much lately.
That caramel creamer just does it for me.
Here’s to hoping that I can keep the productivity flowing this morning/afternoon like I did yesterday. Then it’s a short shift at work, then? It’s the WEEKEND!
Anyone doing anything fun and exciting?!?
