Thursday Morning Workout

9 Dec

This morning at the gym was intervals and strength.  Since my hips have not been cooperating with my body lately, I decided to skip the intervals and just run slowly for 20 minutes to warm up my body.  I did about 2 miles and then did strength.  My strength workout looked something like this:


  • Triceps Pull Down
  • Bench Straight Leg Dips
  • Chest Press
  • Pec Fly
  • Decline Bench Weighted Oblique Twist
  • Leg Extension


  • Straight Bar Pull Down
  • Shoulder Press
  • Lateral Raise
  • Seated Leg Curl
  • Back Extension


Before I knew it, an hour was up and it was time to head home.  I did each circuit 2-3 times.  I felt so good when it was over.  I’ve been having trouble getting out of bed in the mornings.  It is still so cold and dark out when the alarm goes off at 4:50am.  I just want to keep sleeping, but luckily the Husband makes me get out of bed. 

Breakfast today was the usually-  PB toast on Ezekiel bread with a cup of black coffee. 


Question:  Does anyone else out there enjoy peanut butter as much as I do?

    I don’t know why, but I haven’t been eating as much peanut butter as I used to. I guess I need to take a break from it for a while.
