What Day of the Week is It?

Working it Out at Lunch
So I will refrain from stating how insane work is again. I swear I don't even have a clue what day it is any longer, especially since I'm thrown off my regular schedule. But, I think you all get that. I know several of you are having insane weeks too. Hopefully we all can recover just a bit this weekend!

I took a slightly longer lunch today to get in all of my workouts done. I didn't think I would have time after work before the welcome reception for our conference. I did back and biceps today, opting for the pyramid method. It was pretty much the same workout as last week. For the pyramid I did reps of 12, 10, 8, 10, 12 increasing then decreasing the weights.

Pyramid SS#1
Pullovers into Double-arm rows

Pyramid SS#2
Biceps curls into Hammer curls

SS#3
Underhand rows
Alternating biceps curls

Lat band pull downs - 2x16

I followed this up with all of the first and second combos/intervals then the boxing only from the third for Cathe's MMA Boxing. I also did abs from Power Hour. The whole workout was about 56 minutes. Not too bad. Got in, got it done, got back to work.

Frozen Entree for Dinner
So I think I officially have upper body DOMS for every single muscle group. I have a feeling tomorrow will be a rest day for me. Not sure when I would be able to get in a workout unless I got up early. Because of the reception tonight, I'll be out later than normal for a weeknight. Of course, that's sort of funny for me to say b/c I'm typically home no later than 6:30 and that's only if I go to spin. So I may as well be staying out until midnight. I do hope to be home by 8:30 though. Wish me luck please.

While there was going to be food at the reception - quesadillas and such - I opted for a healthier alternative that was super quick: an Amy's frozen entree. I had thought I would be able to make stir fry or something like that, but I really didn't have more than about 30 minutes to get home, change, eat, and get going again. Have I mentioned how much I dislike being off my routine? Oh...yeah...once or twice. So, I won't go there. I'm determined to try to chill out and enjoy.

I hope everyone has a great evening!
