Ya girl went in! I wish the Bicep Emoji could be inserted here. That’s how I felt. Also, I am on this new meal plan and so far so good. I haven’t felt hungry since 6am. I meal prepped for 3 days since I will be going out of town for the weekend and I am sure I can maintain my little plan when the weekend hits. I just have to pack the non-perishables and possibly purchase some perishables. Here goes one of my meals I believe this is meal 3.

Tomorrow I will get some cardio in and probably do some light work on Saturday whenever I get to my destination. Happy Friday Eve everybody!

 

Labor Day Weekend Recap and Monday Workouts

This 3-day holiday weekend could not have been better 🙂

 

Yes, I am all smiles. On Friday, I got to participate in Critical Mass and it was so much fun. We rode 20 miles! TWENTY! Here are some pictures:

This guy had ALLLLLL the jams!

How we roll!

That was some of the awesomeness that happened. People had their speaker systems, and had amazing music playing. There was even a point where about 100 bikers broke out into song singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Awesomeness.

I ended my night by crashing and falling asleep. The next day, I picked up my brother and my niece and we were going to head out to the country for my step-mom’s annual Labor Day Family Reunion. I stopped to have a date 1st *smiles* (I left my bro and niece back at my Dads house close by before I went on my date LOL), then we were on the road. I had a great time. I got to see some of my Step-Mom’s fam spent time with my Step-Bro and Step-Sis (which are practically like my blood brother and sister) and then I left to come back to Houston. I dropped my brother and niece off and went out dancing. It was a great time :-). After that I went home and was invited to go to Church, but I ended up oversleeping O_O. So I missed service, and ended up catching a movie and seeing the Butler. It was great. I bought some new workout shoes!

They were like 49 bucks thanks to a special someone having a military discount :-), and then went back and kicked it in Humble with a special somebody :-). After that, I went back home to rest, and play with Gizmo, and submitted some homework that was due. I was supposed to go a pool party but ended up chillin at my pool, which was cool. I ended the night watching Red Tails.

Monday, I ended up relaxing and went back to Humble to chill for a bit, and then headed back to my side of town, and relaxed. I was so relaxed, I fell asleep! Like an old person! My sister came by with her LS, and her LS’s BF and his nephew stopped by which was cool.

Tuesday I worked out with my trainer, he wants to put me on a meal plan. Thats cool because I have new goals, and I need to reach them by eating correctly. The workout consisted of:

Warm up: 15 min run

3 rounds of 6 inches for 45seconds

2 rounds of  6 inches then knees to your chest (25 times, never putting your feet on the ground)

50 jumping jacks with ropes

Lunges to the street stop sign and all the way back to the house

75 jumping jacks with ropes

Lunges to the street stop sign and all the way back to the house

3 sets of 20 squats with 45lb barbell

 

Slight work! here’s a video:

You have to work for what you want! Well hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday I am!

Tuesday Workouts

Garage Fit did it again,

My workouts just keep getting better and better. I really was proud of my performance yesterday! I was a little nervous because I tend to struggle on my 1st days back after a 2-3 day break from my session with my trainer. I grabbed my dog from Doggie day camp and booked it to my trainers. Traffic in Houston was…..difficult to get around.

Yesterday’s workout consisted of:

Warm up: 15 min run w/ Gizm0

3 rounds of:

  • 15 dead lifts w/ 135lbs
  • 15 squats w/ 115lbs
  • lunges up and down the driveway on an incline 6 times (3 up the driveway, 3 down the driveway)
  • 50 jumping jacks with rope
  • 7 hills

 

 

After I found out how much I deadlifted and squatted I felt like this:

I got a 3 minute rest in between the rounds, and it was intense! Having my dog there really distracted me though. I didn’t complain. I have another session this Thursday before Critical Mass and I am contemplating working out for Bootcamp on Saturday since I don’t have a hair appointment this weekend. I ended the night by going home, cooking a nice chicken pasta meal ate that and had some cantaloupe for dessert I cut up earlier in the week. Yum.

My trainer thinks that I can do better and I can step it up even more. I am shocked. I did not know he had that much faith in me. Shoot. Well that goes to show you, that you should give yourself more credit! It’s nice to have someone who thinks you can do amazing things and encourages you to take it to the next level! Did I mention having a personal trainer/working out is in a little way a form of therapy? For me it is. If I have had a bad day, I just take all my anger, and channel it into my workout. If I am feeling lazy or that I cannot do a certain workout, my trainer is there to push me.  Well hope everyone is having a productive humpday!
