Monday night after work I headed to the gym to do my weight lifting routine. I also have another motive: Canceling my appointment with Ding-Bat Trainer. I was fully prepared to let her know that we weren’t a good fit and I no longer wanted to be contacted.
The good news: Tuesday morning I got a text message from said Ding Bat.
My workout Monday night was okay. I’m happy to report that I don’t need as many days in between my weight training sessions anymore. I wasn’t sore from Saturday’s session and Monday’s went well.
I focused on the upper body but this time I did more with my legs. I’m determined to keep my legs strong while I heal. I used the ITB machine that strengthens the inside of the thighs, and I also used the Leg Press (at a very light weight).
I made my way to the other section of the gym and focused on core work.
2 minutes of vigorous rowing then
1 minute of the Russian Twist then
1 minute of Crunches with the half ab ball
It was a hot, sweaty routine and it felt good.
Time: 58 minutes
Calories Burned: 338 calories
The second I got home, I had a small glass of chocolate milk as a recovery drink from the workout. I MUST be better about eating something within 15 minutes of a workout. It’s essential for healing muscles.
Dinner was from the freezer this time: Turkey Burgers.
Perfect dinner after a good workout!
