I followed a strength training routine I found on Julie's Peanut Butter Fingers blog site.
|Bicep curls||15 lbs.||15||3|
|Side shoulder raises||10 lbs.||15||3|
|Tricep extensions||20 lbs. (total)||15||3|
|Alternating lunges||15 lbs.||15||1|
|Hamstring ball curls||Bodyweight||20||3|
|Pushups (on my knees)||Bodyweight||15||3|
|Wall sits||Bodyweight||30 sec.||3|
|Various crunches on exercise ball||Bodyweight||50||3|
When I was finished with strength, I hopped on the elliptical and put in a quick 15 minute cardio session. I didn't feel the need to do anything too crazy, as I had just walked Zeke for over an hour.
Now on to lunch. I was very hot and thirsty after the gym, so I was craving something to quench my thirst. I found a recipe in a magazine that I really wanted to try when I had all of the ingredients. A watermelon smoothie! Thankfully, we actually had watermelon in our fridge today, so it was the perfect time to test this recipe out.
-2 cups diced watermelon
-1 cup ice cubes
-1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
-1 packet of Splenda
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
|Blend em up.|
