Wow – this weekend was wonderful. It was filled with friends, relaxation, a 5K and some Irish beer!!
The first full day of the weekend (SATURDAY!) started out super late. I slept in until 9:30. How wonderful!
I love Saturday’s because of breakfast! I have time to make a well-balanced, delicious meal.
BREAKFAST – Breakfast on this lovely Saturday morning included scrambled eggs, a toasted Whole Wheat English Muffin with butter and raspberry jam. On the side, of course, hazelnut Keuring cup!
I had a great day lounging around, catching up on my DVR (hello Biggest Loser!) and then it was time to hit the gym. At the gym, I completed 30 minutes on the arc trainer. I did an interval workout at level 3 where it was 1 minute at 20 resistance, 3 incline and 30 seconds at 30 resistance, 3 incline. Boy, was I sweating! Then I did some arms and cross training. Here’s what I did:
- Bicep curls to over arm lift – 10 pound weight, 12 reps, 3 times
- Plie Squat – 10 pound weight, 12 reps, 3 times
- Tricep Extensions – 1o pund weight, 12 reps, 3 times per arm
- Quick Jumps on half stability ball – 3o seconds, 3 times
It was a great work out. Then I enjoyed a strawberry, mango protein smoothie from the gym! So good!
SNACK – For a snack, I had the rest of the cottage cheese container. It’s weird that I was craving it!!
I showered and then popped myself back on the couch for the rest of the night!
DINNER – I had a quick dinner of 4 taquitos with a dollop of Light Daisy sour cream. The man ate an entire frozen pizza by himself (he’s down from his 3 pizzas a week!) so he wasn’t hungry and I wanted something quickly!!
I was still hungry, so I had an apple with peanut butter.
