This will be a pretty long post since it covers four days worth. I was blessed with extra time with my kids last week and while I can keep them occupied at my gym's kids area they get crazy when I'm on the computer. I've been in the free weight area all week. I've been sticking to weight training five days a week with cardio. I rotate days as: chest & triceps, back and biceps, legs and shoulders, with abs every other day. I'm not sure if I can do abs every day so I do it that way to be safe. I've also started doing half of my cardio on the treadmill and staying half on the elliptical. I sweat a heck of a lot more on the treadmill do I feel I'm working harder.

Each day I did 40 minutes of cardio, half elliptical on interval and half on treadmill rotating between running 1 minute brisk walk 2 minutes.

All weight training done in sets of 3 (10, 12, 15)

Dumb bell flyes

Thursday Back & Biceps

I'll be making more time for logging workouts and meals. I can't remember everything I ate during this time. Back to it tonight after my workout! I just got my reward package the other day filled with all those wonderful things. I'm so excited to try them all!

I think I'm going to give up the elliptical completely. I've never felt more worked after an elliptical workout as I do after the treadmill. I haven't had a rest day, I'm just cycling through my muscle groups.
