Yesterdays TT

TT challenge – WEEK 7, DAY 2


Today I started the Feb2K8 circuit workout. … OUCH! I think I strained a butt muscle and you can expect quite a bit of whining tomorrow, ok? This was a challenging but FUN workout and afterward I had that 'woohoo I'm all floaty and high and happy and my butt hurts in a good way' feeling.
A) DB Push Press 6 with 7kg DB's
B) DB Deep Step-up 8 reps. I started with 7kg DB's and had to drop them to 5kg. I think this is the one that really rocked my glutes.
C) Stability ball rollout 15 reps
D) DB Reverse lunge 8 reps per side with 7kg DB's
E) Spiderman pushups – a measly 10 (5 per side). I will gradually increase this. Just feeling out how my wrist is progressing.
F) DB Row – 8 reps with 10kg
G) Dumbell Swings – 15 reps, started with a 10kg DB and had to drop it to 7kg.

It took me 35 minutes to get through it three times. I had to race away straight after I finished to help carry my nieces new bed up some stairs (tip: do not attempt to carry anything up stairs after this circuit!) and will do the intervals tomorrow (if my legs still work). Tonight I knew I only had about 35 minutes to do that workout and the time pressure kept me well focussed.


I'm going to start mixing things up a bit with my nutrition. I feel I've gotten into a bit of a rut, which could be why the 'over this' feeling snapped at my ankles last week. McDonalds lunches are not really part of that plan per se, but today was exceptional. My restaurant lunch plans fell through and, believe it or not, McDonalds was the only place in the area that was not serving just pizza, or deep fried calorie bombs. Having researched their menu, I know that the premium chicken salad is 220 cals (without dressing) and the sundae is 250 cals (really not bad for a sundae), so that was lunch, trans fats and all.

1. Smoothie with berries, frozen yogurt, greek yogurt, WPC, 6 x Omega 3 caps
2. Roasted chickpeas with chilli seasoning (very nice)
3. McDonalds premium chicken salad and chocolate sundae
4. Protein cookie
5. Oatwhites with applesauce and cinnamon
6. Omlette with 1 egg, 4 ews, spinach, onion, mushrooms, small amount of feta cheese.
