Today is the day.
Let's just cut to the chase. The winner of October's Sickeningly Sweet Music Mix Giveaway is #44 Stacy from "Ben and Stacy"
Happy Monday to every one! I'm feeling unusually optimistic for a Monday. Maybe it's because I got in a great workout this morning? Maybe it's because I'm very happy that it isn't snowing? Maybe it's because I'm wearing my new colored jeans which makes me feel like a kid again (we were all about the colored Gap denim at my house) Maybe it's because my b-day is on Friday? Who knows. It doesn't matter; I'll take the optimism.
30 mins of intervals on the elliptical
Lifted legs & Shoulders
3 sets of each alternating between exercises
12 squats with leg press on sled 270 lbs (If you aren't doing these, start now. One of THE BEST exercises in my opinion. You engage SO many muscles, burn LOTS of calories, load up the weight, and tone a million things at once.)
single leg balancing front raise with 25 lb plate
12 step ups with an overhead press with 15 lb db's
12 step ups just holding db's
12 single leg reverse lunges on physio ball with right leg
12 single leg reverse lunges on physio ball with left leg
15 Squat throws with a 18 lb med ball (I. LOVE. THESE. just ask my clients)
20 Med ball throw downs (working the core and shoulders)
12 Upright row to a dead lift with 20 lb db's
20 more minutes on the elliptical...called it a schweaty day.
Can I just bring up something real quick...Since my Ipod is out of commission (may it rest in peace) I am at the mercy of whatever music the gym happens to be playing while I lift. I can use pandora on my phone as I do cardio, thank goodness. However...while I lift I get whatever is on. Today this song came on...
I'm sorry...Maybe "private eyes, watching you" wasn't a creepy term in 1981, but I feel like I'm not alone in saying it is now. Maybe we have Hall and Oates to blame for all the crazy peeping toms born in the 1980's? No?
Anyways...GUESS WHAT? I have another AWESOME contest/giveaway to announce today!! Two of my FAVORITE things in life combined. Wahoo!
I hope your Monday is looking as optimistic as mine is! :) xoxoxo
