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!

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
