Step, Weights, Stir Fry

Double Workout
Jason got up for swim this morning at 5 am, so I decided to get my lazy rear out of bed and get my cardio done. I did Shock Cardio Athletic Step. It's a fun workout, but maybe a little over zealous for a 5 am workout when I'm not fully awake.It did give me a nice morning boost of energy at least.

I did my weight workout at lunch today. It's actually the last workout for Week 6 of the 8-week rotation. It was 2 sets of 12 reps done as supersets increasing weights.

SS#1
Shoulders - Upright rows (with dumbbells)
Biceps - Alternating bicep curls

SS#2
Quads - Squats
Inner thigh - Alternating plie squats

SS#3
Chest - Incline dumbbell chest press
Back - Underhand row (dumbbells)

SS#4
Legs - Static lunges
Triceps - Overhead triceps extension

I also added calf raises. It was a good workout that gave me a nice extra boost of energy. Too bad it ended around 2 pm ;-)

Stir Fry
Dinner tonight was an easy veggie stir fry. We had lots of fresh veggies to use up: purple cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots. I also added in frozen peas and a large chunk TVP. I love spicy stir fry so I used sriracha chili sauce as well and served over soba noodles. There really isn't much of a recipe (sorry).

I hope everyone had a great Hump Day!
