How come when I get home all I want to do is snack? I’ll snack until I’m miserable. I’ll snack until I’m full and don’t really need to eat dinner. It’s stupid, and out of control. I really need to work on getting that handled. ugh.
In the video he says that you don’t have to use heavy weights, that light (10-15lbs) are sufficient because you aren’t trying to build bulk, but endurance.
He says repetitions > weight. True or False? I think it probably depends on what your goals are. I want to be able to pick Chris up and throw him across the room. jk
I don’t know enough about weight lifting to really have an opinion on this. What do you think? I think that I want to be able to lift heavier weights. Right now I can only use 5lb for any length of time. I would love to be able to work up to heavier weights- that’s my goal.
All day Friday I was trying to decide what I wanted to do today. Run? Circuit? DVD? Decisions, decisions. I have this debate way to often. I need to get back to making a weekly work out plan. (Or get a training schedule.)
I decided to do a combo of running & weights.
I started on the treadmill and ran three miles. Then I did an upper body work out:
I got this work out from the RunnerDude link above:
2 sets of 15 with 5lbs weights
dumb bell shoulder press
alternating bicep curls
standing tricep kickbacks
dumb bell running swings
push ups (2 sets of 10)
reverse dumb bell fly – this one is really hard for me. my right shoulder always makes this popping sound; kind of scares me.
crunches on stability ball
after the weights I did 1 last mile.
Total miles: 4 in 37:32
Friday nights dinner strayed away from my meal plan just a little. I needed to use up the chicken I bought, but making stuffed chicken breasts sounded way more labor intensive than I was ready to do.
I wanted something quick & easy.. and by that I mean, quick & easy for me
I put some chicken breasts in a bowl and covered them in buffalo sauce. Then when Chris got home he put them on the grill. I also sautéed up some onion, tomatoes, & green peppers.
Once the chicken was done we sliced it up and put it on a wrap for a buffalo chicken wrap. freakin’ yum! That chicken was slammin’
I gotta get going. I’m going to Clermont today to see friends & family! Woot!
