It’s time to workout and Christmas shop today!
Before my workout today I needed a good breakfast! I had a paleo pumpkin walnut muffin from last night mixed with a banana and a big scoop of melty smart balance chunky peanut butter!
It was delicious and I knew it would hold me over until after the gym!
While I worked on my computer, Jackson laid under my feet…
I drank my fruit punch pre workout drink called White Flood, just mixed with 8 oz. of water and headed to meet my sister.
And I was ready to go!!
Chest is the hardest for me because I am so weak in this area! If I continue to work at it I will get stronger though. Starting out with little weight is better than no weight right!?
- Incline bench press- 4 sets of 12
- Flat Bench Press- 3 sets of 10 superset with chest fly machine
- Cable Flys
- Incline chest press with dumbbells – superset with dumbbell flys
- Incline abs with 25 lb plate- 3 sets of 15
Cardio for 20-25 Minutes. I did the elliptical. 10 minutes at incline of 7-8 to work the gluteus, hamstrings, and quadriceps. 10 minutes at level 3-5 to add in the lower calf muscles.
I burned 595 calories- 35% fat burn. On the way home I drank my protein shake.
When I got home I made a quick lunch.
And Lily watched me- she photographs so well!
I made an egg white and cheese sandwich on a microwaveable English muffin made with almond flour! It was so buttery and sweet tasting. I used thin Swiss cheese which has 9 grams of protein and only 40 calories!
The English muffin has about 280 calories and 6g of carbs!
After lunch I went Christmas shopping with my mom. While we were out I got thirsty so I bought a mango smoothie with added protein powder! Mango is one of my favorite fruits.
When I got home I ate another paleo pumpkin muffin. I just can’t get enough of these!
Off to make dinner then headed to volleyball tonight. It’s tournament night so I hope we play good!
Question of the evening:
Do you use pre workout/post workout supplements or shakes?
