1. I don't have to get up early. Mind you, I still wake up about 8, but that is a lot different than 5. I also don't have to wake up to an alarm, which is BLESSED.
2. I always get a good two hour Saturday morning gym session in. I get to go make up free which is my favorite way to sweat...and usually I get to workout with Benita which I LOVE! During the week I usually work out solo because of my schedule, so having someone with me is always a treat.
Today's workout went as follows...
45 minutes of intervals on the elliptical
15 minutes on the stair climber
50 minutes Full Body
3 sets of each
12 rear pull down rows with the free motion machine @60 lbs
24 alternating plyometric lunges
3 sets of each
12 squat curl presses with 20 lb dumbbells
20 right leg up and over the bench step ups with a 15 lb db
20 left leg up and over the bench step ups with a 15 lb db
This workout may seem short because there aren't a ton of exercises but it is a heart rate killer and a leg burner for SURE. The exercises in the second set take a while as well, so it stretches it out.
3. I get to stay totally scroungy for most of the day. We usually spend a few hours in the sun at Seven Peaks, run errands looking like rag-a-muffins, and relax. Now, don't forget that I usually am in my gym clothes all day anyways, BUT not having to put makeup on is always a bonus.
4. I get to work on my projects! I always seem to have some sort of project I want to work on, or new baked good or dish I want to try out, and Saturdays are the perfect day to do so. Thanks to my current obsession with Pinterest, I have about one million projects I want to work on right now. Last weeks project was these paintings for my sister.
I took photos of my nephews and niece and made some high contrast paintings.
I have seen a few other people do them before, and I wanted to give them a shot for myself. I am obsessed. They were SO fun to make.
I cannot WAIT to show you what my Saturday project for today was. I'll post it tomorrow...so much fun!
I hope your Saturday has been AWESOME. Do you get to sleep in on Saturdays? I love getting a full nights sleep. I think sometimes we get so busy we forget that sleep is so good for your body! Do you prefer to workout alone or with a buddy? I love both. I usually like to do my cardio solo, but I'd MUCH rather do my resistance training with someone else!
