Well yesterday I just sort of spent the day in bed sick consuming soups, teas and shamelessly consuming apples with homemade almond butter(which is quite fantastic I must say). Today o am going to make an effort to do some yoga to get my body moving and hope I'm up for a leg workout Monday morning.


Food:

Breakfast:
Chocolate green smoothie

Snack:
Apple with almond butter
Tea

Lunch:
Veggie stir fry (fried with water I don't use oil)

Snack:
Tea


Dinner:
Soup

Loved last night's heavy rope workout. I put the men in the gym to shame, the only thing I ever see the men do with the ropes is swing it up and down, nothing nearly as hard as the stuff I had to do. I loved every painful second of it and plan on incorporating the ropes into my regular training. I am still a bit sick but I feel that I am at about 98%.

Today was a run day. That was it. Tomorrow will be my first real day back in the gym after being sick and I can't wait! It's a leg day and I plan on killing it!

Leg day! Today was my first official day back in the gym. I still didn't feel 100% but I managed ok. Put my all into my sets. Did a lot of different weighted squats, lunges, leg press, leg curls and leg extensions plus some variations on calves. I just followed a leg plan I found on Cut and Jacked until I figure out what my training plan should be for the next few months.

I am starting to really feel it in my arms. This week I am doubling up on legs, so I will do legs again tomorrow. I really want to build up my arms, I feel like they are too flabby and I want to see more muscle definition. I think for the next few weeks I will focus on them a little more, and maybe alternate each upcoming week with two tri days and two bi days the week after or something. I also need to start increasing weight, I want to start lifting heavier so I am going to start including what weights I lifted for each exercise (I saw someone including that in their journals which I think is a fab idea :D).

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press 4 x 10

Declined Oblique Crunch 3 x 15 on each side
Declined Reversed Crunch 4 x 15
Abs Weighted Crunch Machine 3 x 15
Standing Barbell Twist 3 x 20
Hanging Leg Raises 3 x 1


FOOD:

Breakfast:
Chocolate Green smoothie
raw oats with protein powder, almond milk, and banana
