Work Cancellations and Leg Day Activities!

20160216_002716000_iOS

Ice, rain, sleet, and snow = the worst travel conditions ever!! I drove to the gym in this nonsense and slid everywhere, but I did manage to get a good (and tiring) leg day session in. I wanted to treat myself to a dunkin donuts coffeeee but they weren’t open yet…also I didn’t have enough money in my wallet or my debit card so I managed to save myself a few bucks.

 

After rushing around my morning, spilling my eggs in my purse, curling my hair and stuffing my face at breakfast…turns out my preceptor said I shouldn’t attempt to travel into work today and just to work from homeAnnoyed I mean yes I’m so happy about that BUT I woke up and even curled my hair today! Plus they have delicious coffee there that I was really looking forward too. I guess It’s back in my pajamas I go Smile

 

Prepping for tonight’s event: getting my agenda ready, shopping around for mirrors, prepping what I plan to say…luckily I have a whole day now to think about all of this! Also officially registering for my two NPC bikini events! The gym I go to wants to help fundraise/pay for my hotel/registration fee….AWESOME. I have never been so grateful to have such a great, supportive community as I do now. Having a support system is SO important when it comes to living a healthy life. Positive influences = positive choices.

 

 

And the positivity I had going through my fueled my leg day workout:

  1. X Squats superset w/ weighted bridged
  2. Sumo squats superset w/ reverse lunges
  3. lunges using the bench superset w/ weighted forward lunges
  4. adductor superset w/ standing calf raises
  5. abductor superset w/ leg curl machine
  6. my usual 7 minute ab workout
  7. plus 20 minutes of incline booty killin cardioooo!

I don’t always superset this much, but when you’re short on time in the AM (as I thought I was since I was supposed to work….) I had to superset more than usual.

Happy Tuesday Smile

Leg Day and Overworked

20160204_114758386_iOSYesterday was BEYOND the longest day of my life. After my super early morning gym session, I went to work and was there only 8-1:30pm since the dietitian had to leave for personal reasons. After that I headed to the grocery store which was PACKED, went home to eat (I was starving all day….like it was unexplainable. I’ve never been that famished before!!) and attempted to cure my insane headache which failed miserably. I was only home for an hour before I had to leave t go back to the store and purchase 250$ worth of food for the event we are holding tomorrow. The afternoon seemed to have been going well. I ran into Roddy’s father and that always makes my day. Talking to him always puts me in a pleasant mood!

After Patrice and I purchased the food for the french toast bake, yogurt parfaits, and trail mix, we had to pre some of it. We thought it would only take a few hours but we were there 4-10pm….

and of course I would lose my car key…and find in 3 minutes later but still! The fact that it set me back three minutes was miserable. The hard work we put into half of the prep last night was worth it. I’ll post the recipes after we finalize if they are a hit with the staff or not Winking smile

I still managed to wake up at 3AM, hit the gym, and come home and get ready for work. But because of my late night yesterday I didn’t have time to prep my chicken for today….so I did that this morning while doing the following:

my hair

the dishes

taking out the trash for trash day

eating my oatmeal

andddd checking my emails. Pro multi-tasker if you ask me!

Because we did so much of the prep yesterday, today should be short and simple: prep the french toast and let it soak overnight and fill the yogurt containers. Should be in and out easily. Well, let’s hope.

 

20160204_014019000_iOSToday’s 3:30AM workout: 30 minutes of cardio, Abs, and legs. I’ll probably head back in later to finish up some legs because I was a little rushed, but I feel fairly content with everything I put in this morning. I truly enjoy when no one is at the gym, I feel better squatting that way hehe.

Problem: Aside from sodium and dairy, what can cause you (or someone you know) to bloat? I woke up and felt excessively bloated, full, and uncomfortable and CANNOT put my finger on it!

 

Off to work at the hospital! wish me luck with tonight’s events!

 

Ps: making this trail mix with fancy bags took us four hours….lets hope people appreciate them!!
