Let's get right to it, shall we? Today's gym workout: much better than yesterdays. Mostly because I didn’t do as much cardio :-P I did a warmup on the treadmill: 5 mins walking at 3mph at 1 incline, then 3 minutes at 5mph (also at 1 incline) then 2 minutes at 3.6mph with a 5 incline.
Then the usual weights, same as Tuesday – still keeping with the increased weights. It was tough but good! Halfway through the weights I got on the treadmill and jogged for 3 minutes and 30 seconds – at 5mph but just at a .5 incline. Then after the weights I jogged for two minutes at 5mph,1 incline. So I got a total of 8.5 minutes of jogging at 5mph, they were just spread out!
After those last two minutes I decided to fool around on a jump rope for a little bit. It was probably only a combined total of like 4 minutes, with all the starting, stopping, regaining breath, etc. I timed myself and my longest stretch was 45 seconds. My legs were buurrnnnnniinnngggg (yes, obnoxiously-typed-out burning!) by the end of it. I liked the jump rope. I might keep this in the ol’ repertoire!
I didn't forget this time: I've had 96 oz. of water to drink today, and I'm working on the next 16 oz. after my dinner. So we'll have a grand total of 112 today. Noice.
*the last two pumpkin waffles! With a leeeetle less than ¼ cup real maple syrup. Quite the treat! (I think the use of maple syrup guilted me into going to the gym today)
*turkey burger with toasted arnold’s sandwich thin, little bit of ketchup, piece of lettuce, and 2+ tbsp of salsa cream cheese spread
*1/2 cup veggie crunchers
*half a large baked/mashed sweet potato
*eggplant and mozzarella with marinara on top of zucchini and yellow squash
Looks like this (apologies for lighting):
It was pretty good! Just a little bakin-and-a-broilin’.
