I woke up tired because I stayed up late the night before enjoying a novel I randomly picked to read for fun. Yeah, I know my fault! Actually it should be the author of the book’s fault because she wrote a very captivating romantic story! Lol! (Cheesy I know! Well, that’s me!)
Anyways, I still got up my normal time, 5 am. So I have an hour to fully wake up, enjoy my coffee, do some quick paperworks and prepare myself mentally for my workout. Yep! I’m that determined! (or crazy!)Lol! But I do enjoy this early morning hours all to myself without kids. This should explain to you why in my food journal I always have “early morning” meal or drink.
So let’s get right into it! Shall we?
Early Morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee, banana
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled, banana bread muffin with coconut flakes
Morning Snack: handful of mixed nuts
Lunch: meatloaf with a side of kale slaw
Afternoon Snack: couple slices of watermelon
Dinner: Gnocchi pasta with chicken in alfredo pesto sauce, caesar salad, garlic bread, & glass of white wine
Yes I indulged again! I know my dinner wasn’t on my menu plan for this week but my husband had a day off and he cooked dinner for us. So of course I had to return the favor and eat the meal he cooked with gusto! ? It’s not every day I get a night off from cooking! And like I said before, I love good food especially when it’s not cooked by me! Lol!
It’s 2nd training day of Rock Solid Kettlebell program for this week and below were my routine:
Sumo deadlift: 3 sets: 1st set 12 reps using 44 lbs, 2nd set., 10 reps using 48 lbs., 3rd set 8 reps using 60 lbs.
Swing: 3 sets, 15 reps using 35 lbs.
Suitcase deadlift w/ walk: 3 sets: 1st set: 1 – 25 lbs & 1 – 30 lbs for 12 reps; 2nd set: (switched arms) 1 – 25 lbs & 1 – 30 lbs for 10 reps; 3rd set: 1 – 30 lbs & 1 – 44 lbs (switched arms midway) for 8 reps
Renegade rows: 3 sets, 3 slow reps each side, 30 lbs.
Reverse Flys: 3 sets, 12, 10, 8 reps, I used our gymnastic rings
Light high pull, catch & squat: 3 sets, 12, 10, 8 reps using 25 lbs.
I pushed myself to go heavy as I can manage safely on this workout routine and it felt awesome! I was literally “high” after my training! It felt amazing! My muscles stop aching already. I’m not sure if I should be happy that my body is getting used to being worked or not because I don’t know if I’m making any more progress. :/
I am also still doing the 28 days Single Leg Deadlift challenge. And today is day 27 , rest day. Tomorrow, for the last day will be the testing day to see how heavy I can lift with SLDL. We shall see! I am excited! 🙂
