I never got a chance to tell you all this afternoon, but I’m happy to announce that I survived my week 2, Day 8, double upper body workout this morning!
(Yes, that is me being totally dramatic.)
I knew that I would “survive,” but I was honesty I little nervous to see how my arms would be feeling after Saturday’s workout. Luckily, I woke up only slightly sore, and knew I would be able to push through. Surprisingly enough, it actually wasn’t as intense as Saturday’s workout (I think it was the lower body recovery workout that killed me before) and I felt motivated enough to add in a little extra cardio.
20 minutes was the max that I wanted to spend on the treadmill, so I put together a quickie routine that looked something like this.
You’ll notice that the speeds stay the same, but the amount of time recovering in between sprints gets shorter as you go. It was quick, intense, and perfect for when you need to fill up just 20 minutes. As always, just adjust the speeds to suit you (4.5mph is a fast walk for me).
I’m actually working again this afternoon, so I had to pack up the lunch to go today.
Last night, I put together a salad made of spring mix, tomatoes, carrots, corn, black beans, and a slab ‘o goat cheese. I also have some pineapple salsa packed up separately to add on top.
To go along with my salad, I have a peach and a Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Larabar, one of which will probably be my 3:00 snack.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get a little bit of studying done this afternoon, too. I barely had a chance to crack open my book this entire weekend!
Question for the Afternoon:
What are some of your favorite mid-afternoon snacks?
