Heading Home

So today's post will be short and to the point. It's not the most exciting day after everything else. We got up early again - sun shining too brightly to allow sleep - and decided to take advantage of the bad-ass gym, The Sporting Club at the Bellevue. Holy Workout Heaven folks. We ran on the indoor track for about 20 minutes then Jason went to swim laps and I did the elliptical (with built in tv AND fan) and the weights. I opted for shoulders doing 3 sets of 8 reps with the exception of the last exercise which I did 2 sets of 8 reps:

Shoulder press
Lateral raise
Rear delt flye
Front raise
Alternating shoulder press (elbows forward)

After the workouts, we had some oatmeal before cleaning up and packing up. As much as I want to get home, it's always sad when you have to start packing. I feel like there's so much more I want to do (and eat)! I'm also starting to get a bit anxious about the flight, which is never a fun feeling.

We're going to stop into the Reading Terminal again and pick up some lunch to have on the way to the airport. We'll end up having to have dinner at the Detroit airport later this evening and don't want to airport meals. The Reading Terminal Market (it's where the Basic 4 Vegetarian Snack Bar is located) has a ton of vendors and there were a few other places with some veggies options that we had eyed previously.

I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

Mid-Week Mix-Up - Disconnecting to Reconnect

Another Double Workout This morning I got up when Jason got up to go to swim. The plan was to do Cathe's MMA Kickboxing DVD then do back and triceps at lunch or after work. I really needed a day off from running - I had run 5 days straight. And wouldn't you know it that my cross-training day also happens to be the first morning in months that it was in the low 60's. Really? Talk about bad timing. I almost feel like I let the universe down by not taking advantage of the crazy cool temps. And of course they go right back up the rest of the week. Humph.... But, I listened to my body, my feet, my piriformis...all telling me to not run. So, I didn't. I did my kickboxing workout (sulking just a bit I won't lie). But it was a good way to "kick" off the morning. During lunch, I ran home to get in my back and triceps weights done. I went with my same back and triceps workout as last week. No gym means no assisted pullups or barbell rows. So, I do worry a bit

Workout Wednesday - Body Blaster Tabata

Happy Hump Day! I wanted to thank everyone for their comments on yesterday's post: Be Kinder to Your Body. Calories are Not the Enemy . It sounds like it resonated with many of you. Today I wanted to share a new workout with you. I've been working on interval workouts for some of my clients. I try to give them the most bang for their buck (time). I know that in an ideal world, we would all have time to do longer workouts. There would never be scheduling conflicts, sick husbands or kids, or sick us. In reality, workouts need to be effective and efficient. And they don't have to be lengthy to be effective and efficient either. There's no need to spend hours in a gym to get in a good workout. Interval workouts like HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) or tabata, or even interval running are great ways to get in a fantastic workout in a short amount of time and have many benefits. You can read more about Tabata workouts  here .
