Legs Part 2 & Convenient Food Wins Out

Legs Part 2
This morning I opted to sleep in rather than try to get out and run. My hamstrings and booty were more sore today after Saturday's workout then painting yesterday, which involved a lot of standing and squatting.

I did get my second leg workout done during lunch. Today I focused on the quads. I think I might try this front/back split again next week as well. Here's what I did today:

Squats (warm up set) 10
Wide-stance squats 3x10
Static lunges 3x10
Squat jumps 3x10 (only difference was that when I jumped up, I brought my knees up so I was still in squat position)
Single leg squat/sit and stands 3x8
Wall squats with ball & weights 2x6 then static holds 4x10 seconds
Firewalkers 8 (4 steps right, 4 steps left equals 1)
Outer thigh raises on ball with ankle weights 2x16

After work, I ended up going for Cathe Friedrich's MMA Boxing. I wanted a cardio workout, but I definitely didn't need anything that was leg intensive at all.

Stir Fry Monday
I had really planned on soup and sandwiches for dinner, but in the end, stir fry won out. We already had some brown rice made, frozen veggies, and Quorn Chik'n Tenders. Sometimes convenience totally wins out. Maybe tomorrow I'll have the energy to make the soup that I wanted to try my hand at tonight.

Do you often let convenience and ease win out with dinner or do you stick to your planned meal?

Hope everyone has had a good Monday. Just 4 more days until the weekend right??
