No cookies today actually. My brother managed to give me a nasty stomach bug so my first two meals looked like this…
GF oats with 1/4 cup of pumpkin, 1/4 cup of blueberries, and one scoop of intest restore powder (prescribed by my doctor a while ago). When I first switched to GF oats, I couldn’t believe that they take 20 minutes on the stove. But, they taste just as good in the microwave with a 1:2 oats to water ratio, 2 min then stir and 30 more seconds.
I took it easy all morning with homework until I felt up to going to the gym. So I threw on this get-up…
I always get a kick out this shirt..
When I got to the gym, I took a 3 mile run:
Mile 1: 11:19
Mile 2: 9:49
Mile 3: 10:34
Yeah I’m definitely a beginner. The run was followed by a 30 min leg workout:
Jump squats- 3 sets of 12 reps
Standing Calve raise- 70lbs, 3 sets of 15 reps
Leg press- 110 lbs, 3 sets of 15 reps
Hip abductor- 70 lbs, 3 sets of 15 reps
Leg Curls- 60 lbs, 3 sets of 15 reps
I felt really great after this workout. Sore of course… but really great. After running some errands, and finishing homework, I decided to go stretch out with an hour long yoga class. It was a super calming class, and I left with that warm fuzzy yoga feeling. You know the one
I was wanting to just continue with the oats for dinner, but I saw way too many bagels, on way too many blogs today that looked way to good for me not to make my own GF udis bagel with some egg whites.
I love Udi’s
So I had a little bit of a loaded workout schedule today. This really isn’t typical for me, and I’ve seen on a lot of other blogs that you guys tend to set up a time in the gym that you shouldn’t exceed. And that’s totally understandable. These multi-visits to the gym can become habitual and obsessive all too quickly. But as for today, it felt right for me
Do you have a min/max gym time or visit for yourself? How much is too much?
