Hi Hi! Hope you all had a wonderful Wednesday.The day started out all rainy & blah, but by midi the rain stopped, clouds cleared and the sun was a-shining...ahhh. Enter a new found, sunny disposition on...life. Seriously tho, my mood & energy are so heavily affected by the weather. Kinda crazy. This afternoon's change of weather made for an absolutely beautiful evening sky...
As usual, work was good and I worked out even though today probably should have been a rest day. I didn't realize just how sore I was from boxing yesterday until I was about 2 sets into today's workout. 2 things... 1) my triceps were dead from throwing punches 2) I kind of tweaked my back in yesterdays boxing sesh. (one too many hard slips to the left)
Treadmill: 40 minutes - Incline/Power walking
- Underhand Tricep Pulldowns: 20 x 3
- Flat Bench, db Press: 20 x 3
- Overhand Pulldowns: 20 x 3
- Close (Tricep) Push Ups: 15 x 3
Another savory oatmeal for brek this morning. Added toasted almonds instead of pine nuts and rather than sauteing the spinach in the pan along with the onions, mushrooms & peppers, I saved it for the very last minute. Tossed the spinach in the pot with the oats to wilt it for literally no more than a minute. Remember, the more you cook your veggies the more nutrients they lose.
Midi Green Smoothie
NomNoms -- Lentil Soup. Will be eating this for days.
Sexy Shoulders Superset
Exercise of the day: Upright Row/Reverse "T" Fly Superset
3 sets, 20 reps of each -- killer combo for lean, sexy shoulders. These are two of my favorite shoulder exercises -- especially, the bent over reverse flys. I call these a "T" Fly because I do them one of two ways 1) thumbs down 2) thumbs up vs. your standard reverse fly where palms are face down. This is a fantastic exercise for scapular retraction and to counterbalance chest work (which I do a lot of).
