It’s Friday!

Holy Moly! Yesterday's workout at the warehouse was brutal! It was freezing when I first got there and by the end I was sweating buckets!

I had a feeling that I would be doing strength training and not circuit, but Holy Cow, he kicked our butts! Two other girls I usually work out with, but who don't normally come in on Thursdays, were there so they got to feel the wrath of Ryan as well! Don't get me wrong, it was awesome, but I was spent for the rest of the day! Therefore, no cardio was done that afternoon!

We did 5 sets of each and reps varied:

Flat bench

Pull ups

Bicep curl with overhead press

Kettle bell swing with squat

pushup to one arm plank

Single leg Romanian dead lift

Walking lunges with 30lb db

Squat jumps

Easy bar curls

One arm tricep press down

Then I had to jump on the elliptical for a 20 minute program that kicked my butt!

I love those kinds of workouts. Just when I think I can't do one more thing…there's one more thing, and I CAN do it!

I came home and ate egg whites with gluten free toast. Then we went to lunch with my FIL and I had soup, salad and a couple chunks of bread with oil. I made chocolate covered pretzels and peanut brittle during the afternoon and may have eaten some of those while making them. J For dinner I had a chicken taco salad and some more chocolate covered pretzels. The candy is all packaged up and ready for gift giving so I won't be touching those anymore!

I was doing so well this week with weight loss, but after weighing myself this morning, I am back up! L The scale is such a finicky thing though. I also feel swollen, which I am sure I can blame on the chocolate covered pretzels!

I plan on wrapping gifts today and making sure I have everything we need. I don't want to have to do any shopping next week. Schools will be out and people will be taking off work so the stores and streets will be super busy! I want to be done with all that today, when I can shop in peace!

I am headed to the warehouse this morning for a hard circuit. My plan is to drink a lot of water today and get rid of this salt. December is almost over and I am not even close to the weight I wanted to lose this month! L Trust the process. Everything I put in my mouth is a choice. I keep telling myself…MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES….and then I eat chocolate covered pretzels…DOH!
