I haven’t been running still to abide by my PT’s orders and I feel a little grumpy. It probably doesn’t help that I haven’t been eating the healthiest…proof is the fried clam platter I had for dinner last night! I have to get back on track so I can start to feel better. One way I was distracting myself from the fact that I’m not running is to get together workouts that I like to do or want to do and collect them on a Workout Page! I am going to hit the gym tomorrow because I desperately need to get on Tough Mudder shape! If you have any good workouts you like, please share!
I didn’t plan on doing strength today because I had a PT appointment this morning. I got there a little early so I decided to sit by the common and enjoy some of the greenery. I sometimes wish my office had an outside office too so I could enjoy the nice weather and work. It’s supposed to rain today but it was nice when I was out there!
3×15 leg lifts per leg with 1 lb. weight on my ankle
3×15 clamshells per leg with resistance band
1×15 bridging leg lifts
4 directions of leg pulls with a resistance band
2×15 and 1×5 (whew couldn’t do the last 10) hamstring curls with exercise ball
2×10 single leg presses
To cheer me up from the running blues and to try to continue with some tactics for saving money, I decided to give the Pioneer Woman’s iced coffee a try! I love getting an iced coffee in the morning and if I can make it, that will help me save some moolah! I made the cold brewed iced coffee last night and strained it this morning before PT. So-what’s the verdict?
AMAZING! It is kind of a pain to strain the coffee with the cheese cloth but the end result is delicious! The flavor definitely is different than a regular batch of coffee, and I LIKE IT! For the next batch, I might use a french press as my friend suggested. This will be a lot easier than using a cheese cloth!
Do you get grumpy of you eat too much junk food?
I need some more core/ab workouts…what are your faves?
