Lots of Legs & A Bedroom Creeper

Morning!

Oh almond butter banana sandwich, you make my morning complete!

——————————

So….holy legs and abs.

Last night’s training started out with our trainer saying “tonight’s workout is going to be a little different tonight… your legs and core are going to take a load today.”

Goody.

He had us do a cross body chop which was awesome for engaging the abs. Then, we did a one-armed overhead press twist (I used a 10 lb dumbbell) while staying in a squat position. I struggled to keep my heels down on this one. It burned!

Also, hanging squats using the TRX straps, planks, pivoting squats (I’m not gonna lie, I felt like a complete badass like Spider Man while doing these), and cleans using the kettle bell.

And then the true leg burner. I don’t even know what to call it but I will try to explain it the best I can. I highly recommend giving it a whirl.

Basically, kneeling on one knee, hold a medicine ball out in front of you. As you come up pull the ball in toward your chest and then kneel back down while pressing the ball back out. He said that the distance your knee comes up doesn’t matter, it can be one inch or 1 foot, the focus is more on the constant movement of the chest press. Then switch legs.

I promise you will burn and your legs will feel like complete rubber. Gumby style.

Geez, do you guys remember Gumby?

One of my classic childhood toys.

It ended as one of those nights where it took me 10 minutes to walk up my stairs to my apartment. Pathetic I know.

I was craving something carb-y for dinner. Enchiladas it was! Chicken, black bean and cheese – my fav (especially left over for lunch!)

I ate the mini salad on the side in attempt to get some extra veggies in for the day – because I was lackin’!

And someone please tell me that sometimes when you are cooking your kitchen looks like this:

I wasn’t even making anything difficult, and I have plenty of counter space, so I have no idea what is going on. It was like an explosion.

As I am working on this post last night. I cant help but notice this creeper staring at me.

Seriously, 5 minutes straight like that. Something tells me she really wanted attention.

My legs are definitely… fatigued today so I may be heading to training tomorrow instead of tonight 😉

Have a good Tuesday!

  • Favorite type of leftovers?
    I dont really like a lot of leftovers, enchiladas are def my favorite type!
  • Do you make a mess while your cooking or do you try to keep things neat?
  • What are you going to make for dinner tonight?

  1. ahhhh those kind of workouts are terribly awesome, arent they? Ive def had some workouts where my legs felt like death for days after, lol!

    enchiladas=awesome leftovers…i really love any leftovers though, i’m constantly eating whatever we cook for days after…i guess i’m just one of those boring people who can eat the same things over and over (unlike kev, who hates leftovers!)

    we’re still trying to decide what to make tonight..i’m feeling under the weather so i might try to convince kev into soup and grilled cheese..hahaha!

  2. Oh definitely pizza leftovers would be my fave! And my kitchen looks like that if I’m making CEREAL! I’m planning a salad tonight. Sort of Chipotle/Qudoba style naked taco salad thing. We’ll see how it works. I don’t really like eating salad for dinner. I’m a carb lover. Lol.

    • yum that sounds good though! If i do salad for dinner I have to have meat, cheese, and some kind of bread on or with it to beef it up so its more dinnerish to me, its sad!

  3. Oh, my kitchen ends up being a complete mess … even when I’m making the most basic of meals! It’s seriously ridiculous. But I also have a fairly small kitchen. I look forward to the day when I have lots more counter space! 🙂

  4. spaghetti is definitely one my leftover faves! 🙂 Other foods aren’t so good the following day.
    My kitchen gets totally messy with anything I do in it..lol even just getting a good cup of joe causes it to become crazy messy! 😛

  5. This is bad, and I know that a lot of people are going to think it’s gross but I LOVE leftover nachos. I know, i know…the chips are soggy and the cheese is not as gooey, but for some reason I LOVE it. I’m weird, but at least there is someone else out there that enjoys leftover Mexican food 🙂
