Posting so that Mark can move on with his life!
Friday–Russ took the day off. I got to go shopping with my personal stylist, Lisa. (Hey Lisa!) My friend Beth is getting married May 5th and we are attending what will be a pretty formal evening wedding at the Swan Coach House in Atlanta. I don’t think that Nike makes an ensemble that would be appropriate for this event. This will require a "special occasion" outfit. And since I would rather get smacked in the face with a 2×4 than to have to shop for this special occasion outfit by myself, I bribe Lisa. Usually all it takes is the promise to buy her something shiny and she agrees to go. Plus, she knows that I will only wind up walking around the store in tears while arguing with the voices in my head about whether or not anyone would notice if I wore my workout clothes.
Lisa makes it easy for me and just tells me what to buy. Saves me a trip to my therapist.
In our neighborhood we are blessed to be surrounded by not one, not two, but three Cajun men that love to cook. Friday night found us at the Ferguson’s for shrimp and crawfish that was flown in especially for that night. One minute the kids were naming their crawfish as they made them race. The next they were shrieking when they met their boiling demise. Shudder.
I was good. Stuck with the chicken platter from Chick-fil-A and a very small handful of wheat pita chips. Marked this as my carb up day and sipped on a margarita. Or two.
Oh….and I stole this pic from him too. 🙂 Me and Baby D with Stacy (hostess) Julie and Anissa.
Oh…and I exercised that day. 🙂
Circuit/Energy Systems Day–4 circuits x 12 reps
Reverse Hyper on stability ball
Glute Bridges/Hip life
DB standing shoulder press
15 min. cycle sprints: 10 sec. hard / 50 sec recover
Saturday–Recover from Friday. Cleaned house and swore off margaritas forever. Mingled outside with neighbors and then walked to the lake to feed the ducks. No ducks. Geese. Aggressive geese. Note to self….take weapon for self defense and more bread next time. Picnic lunch with the boys and mellow evening at home.
4 sets x 45 sec. Birddogs
30 min. running. Substituted with 20 minute sprint intervals. Too icky to run for 30 min. today.
Sunday–Had lunch at my brother’s house. Smoked chicken, raw veggie platter, a piece of cheesecake. Yup. I caved. Not sweatin it though. It was good.
Worked out with Russ today in the home gym.
Full body circuit x 2 8 to 12 reps each
Squat One-arm dumbbell row RDL/stiff legged deadlift Incline dumbbell press Sumo squat/wide stance squat Seated shoulder press Rear lunge and leg lift French press Seated dumbbell curl
Supposed to finish with 10 interval sprints but did 10 minutes of moderate. My legs were killing me from sprints yesterday.
Down 4 lbs from last week. Hoping to continue the trend this week.
Gotta go watch GND!
