This meant that I had to do my weights and cardio at night. It amazes me every time how different the workout is at a different time of day. I almost talked myself out of going, thinking I would make today a rest day and move my workouts down a day. BUT, then I thought about typing that for you all to read and off I went. I started my workout at 7:45 p.m. instead of 8:45 a.m.
When I got there, the gym was SO busy, but almost immediately it cleared out and then it was quiet and comfortable. I did the following:
Grapevine Lunge - 3 sets of 20 using 10 lb weight
Sumo Squat - 3 sets of 20 using 10 lb weight
Bench Row - 3 sets of 20 using 10 lb weight
Triceps Push-Ups - 3 sets of 20
Curl Press - 3 sets of 20 using 5 lb weight
Ball Circles - 3 sets of 20
Ball Sit-Ups - 3 sets of 20
Leg Lifts - 3 sets of 20
Now, I should tell you that the Triceps Push-Ups were done in between other exercises instead of being their own set. So, I did a set of Ball Circles, and then a set of Triceps Push-Ups, instead of doing 3 sets of Triceps Push-Ups in a row. I just didn't think I would get through it. A bit of a cheat, but I did all 60, and I had the strength to do the 3rd set of 20 without a break. I honestly think it was because it was so late for me.
Then I got myself on the spin bike and did 5 minutes at low gear and 5 minutes at high gear for the whole 30 minutes. I have to be honest - breaking it up like that in 5 minute increments made it go so fast. I was breathing so hard I couldn't believe it - I was glad the guy on the bike next to me had his iPod on or I would have felt like an idiot. I actually gasped at one point!!
The whole time I was on the bike I kept thinking "I'm having a beer & clam when I get home". But I didn't. But thinking about it helped me keep my rpm's up. In my head I figured I needed to work harder to compensate for the beer I wanted.
Have a healthy day bloggers!!
