I think I read that this is the coldest and most snow we’ve gotten this early in the winter in years.  Last night on the drive home, it started to snow and it took me over an hour to drive home.   Not fun.

I did, however, get my ass to the gym yesterday.

It was a legs day – I forgot how hard this workout was!

  • Superset:
  • Leg Press: 3 sets of 15 reps
  • Squat Jump: 3 sets of 15 reps
  • Working Set Active Rest:
  • Smith Machine Single-leg Split Squat 3 sets of 15 reps, per side
  • Jump rope: 3 sets of 1 minute
  • Superset:
  • Walking Barbell Lunge: 3 sets of 20 reps, 10 steps down, 10 back
  • Long Jump: 3 sets of 20 reps, 10 jumps down, 10 back
  • Superset:
  • Leg Extension: 3 sets of 20 reps
  • Lateral Bound (side-to-side single leg hops): 3 sets of 20 reps
  • Smith Machine Squat: 3 sets of 30 reps
  • Working Set Active Rest:
  • Standing Calf Raise: 3 sets of 20 reps
  • Jump rope: 3 sets of 1 minute
  • Working Set Active Rest:
  • Calf Press on Leg Press: 3 sets of 20 reps
  • Jump rope: 3 sets of 1 minute

Whew!  That took me 50 minutes to complete.  The lunges take me the longest, since it’s 15 reps on one side, then 15 on the other.  It was the last day of Fitmas at the gym, I only participated 4 out of the 8 days.  Yesterday I got a $5 gift card to use for coffee, bottled water, or at their deli.

I never got around to making my zucchini quiche, so I made two breakfast tacos with fruit on the side.

I had to do a Sam’s Club run for work, and my plan was to hit the gym up for some cardio after that.  Sadly, my blood sugar was perfect 102 – I guess I overestimated the insulin on the fruit.  So I came back to the office and heated up my stir fry.  For the record, the sriracha chili sauce is amazeballs!

After the long drive home after work, I decided to make something quick and easy – chicken Caesar salad.  Tony bought this huge piece of Parmesan cheese at Sam’s club for only $8 and it’s really good!

My right eye was killing me last night, like I scratched it or something.  So I just took it easy, watched Biggest Loser from last week, talked to Hannah on Facetalk, and then Tony and I caught up on some of the shows we have on the DVR.  I love Long Island Medium!  And, I won the football pics this week – I know it drives Tony and my step-son nuts when I win because I just completely guess and really know nothing about football.

I am taking a break from strength training today and plan on hitting up the stair master for a serious sweat session at lunch today.   It’s been a while since I’ve done any cardio and I miss it.

Stats for the Day:

  • 1630 calories (includes peanuts and veggie chips not pictured) 136 carbs, 81 fat, 100 protein, 14 fiber
  • 32% of calories from carbs, 43% from fat and 23% from protein
  • 50 minutes strength – legs

What I really want to do now is go back to bed and snuggle with Tony, but I guess I’ll jump in the shower in the hopes that it wakes me up!  Make it a great day!
