I’m happy to say that I had a pretty great birthday week – No, I’m not actually one of those crazies that celebrates their birthday for a whole week.. I barely even celebrate the day. But, my birthday was last Monday, and I had a great rest of the week.
Tuesday I wasn’t able to make it to the gym so I did a short workout in my garage gym – that workout whooped my ass. My legs were sore for 3 days!
Wednesday I headed to the gym for a stellar arm workout. I LOVE going to the gym. It is seriously the highlight of my day & I continuously look forward to it. When I was running, I rarely looked forward to a run – I loved long runs, but the midweek short runs were doing nothing for me. I ran because I had to in order to keep up my base, not because I wanted to.
Thursday was a rest day – I decided that I HAD to go Christmas shopping this day, so I went after work. I found a few gifts for family, and a few gifts for me! (it was my birthday week after all).
Friday right back to the gym for legs legs legs-
cable seated row 12, 10, 8
deadlift 3 x 8
smith machine squat 1×12 2×8
DB lung 3 x 12
leg press 15, 10, 10
standing calf raise 3 x 12
leg extensions 3 x 8
Saturday I woke up early and headed to the gym for ARMS.
Sunday was a rest day & food prep day. I spent pretty much the entire day in the kitchen. I do multiple things while I’m cooking so it usually takes WAY longer than it needs to.
shredded chicken (we had this for dinner)
sauteed brussell sprouts
baked sweet potatoes
Have a great week! Only 5 more working days until Christmas!
