ready, set, GO!




ready, set, GO! or NOT...
I feel like I wanna get going for the week today, but I don't really want to start. Do you ever feel like that on Monday?

When I feel this way I like to either take action- like cleaning or sitting down to write in my journal/blog a bit; setting a plan of attack for the week often helps my Monday Mojo get rolling....Let's hope this works!

Plan of ATTACK (POA):
Week #8 minichallenge- eat 3 greens a day--and I'm finishing my buffing~ extra cardio for me this week.

Mon- legs (back rehab still, so my leg workout will be light and modified)and intervals/cardio; Mother's day tea with my DD at school

Tue-upper body and intervals/cardio

Wed-LONG intervals/cardio day; kids out of school- must visit the gym in the morning or evening

Thur-legs (back rehab still, so my leg workout will be light and modified)and intervals/cardio;kids out of school- must visit the gym in the morning or evening; meet with Emily my photographer for a walk;

Fri-upper body and intervals/cardio; kids out of school- must visit the gym in the morning or evening

Saturday-upper body and intervals/cardio

Yesterday was a good Mother's day...but I was not a champion as far as my diet went this past weekend. I "fell apart" on Friday with my diet and kept up the bad food intake through yesterday. Maybe that's part of why i am in a brian fog today, lol!

BUT! the great news is that I worked out on Saturday and yesterday. My "every day in MAY" personal challenge is really going GREAT!!!!!
My workout yesterday was small but very effective~ I rode my upright bike for 20 mins and did several 40second intervals (40 sec hard; 40 sec easier) which I really liked. 40 seconds is much shorter than a minute! I'm going to try those on the treadmill this week.

Friday's workout was kinda almost a rest day...i didn't end up doing much of a leg workout, but I still got a little sore.
Saturday, I worked my upper body and I felt really strong and good!
My workout went kinda like this:
r-bike 4mins
chest press machine- 3 sets to warm up
pull ups 11, 6
hammer strength wide bench press
90x12x3sets with feet on bench
knee ups on roman chair- 2 sets
