T.G.I.T. (Thank Goodness It's Thursday!) has become Brett and I's new thing, because he doesn't have to work on Fridays, and we can stay up a little later together, so it's kind of exciting for me too! :)

I woke up extra early this morning to fit in a Powerflex class. I woke up almost simultaneously with my alarm clock and hopped right out of bed to get ready! I think it's because I took it easy yesterday and Tuesday and was ready for a full on workout! (Working all this overtime really puts a lot of stress on my back, and makes me extremely tired when I get home!)

After the powerflex class, I felt a lot better, but my stomach was ready for some fuel! As much as I was craving a big bowl of my cereal again, we were all out of milk, so I had to think of something else! :(

It's ok though, because my Egg McMuffin sandwich hit the spot!
Colorful Breakfast!
Egg whites, Canadian Bacon, on a 100 Calorie English Muffin, with a sweet peach on the side!
It's better than McDonald's!
Monday flew by for some reason. I guess it was my hearty breakfast I had that kept me in work-mode all the way through lunch! I got some new Kashi cereal at the store on Sunday and so far so good!
Cinnamon Goodness.
Before I knew it, it was 5 o'clock and time to go. I headed home to take care of the doggies before heading to the gym. My usual classes were cancelled, so I decided to do my own weights workout at my neighborhood gym.

My Workout was as follows: I rotated muscle groups in each "round" from arms and upper body, legs and abs, to get a full body workout.

15 Min. Warm-up on the treadmill

Round 1:
Shoulder Circuit: 10 forward raises, 10 lateral raises, 10 back raises Repeat 2x
Walking Lunges: 3 sets of 12, with 10 lb weights
Leg Raises(abs): 3 sets of 20

Round 2:
Chest: 3 sets of 15, 10 lb. free weight, bench press, alternating with 3 sets of 15 pushups
Squats: 3 sets of 10, weighted Squats, 3 sets of 10 weighted, turned out squats, alternating
Mason Twist (abs): 3 sets of 25

Round 3:
Biceps and Triceps: 3 sets of 12 each of tricep dips and bicep curls (10 lb. weight) alternating
Hip and Leg Raises (Gluts): 3 sets of 15 hip raises, 3 sets of 12, on each leg, leg presses
Planks (abs): 3 planks, 1 min. each.

10 min. Cool down on the treadmill.

The whole workout took about 1 hour and 10 minutes and I had a good sweat going on afterwards. I was ready to go relax with the pups, since Brett was out of town for work, and cook a nice meal.
After work, I really wasn't feeling the workout that I had planned. I was supposed to run 5 miles after work, but I was so tired after working a long day Tuesday, and working till 6. I decided to go for a fun cardio workout to keep me excited about working out. I took a step class which kept my energy up and kept me moving the entire time! The class is an hour long, with 45 minutes of cardio step, dance-like motions, and then 15 minutes of abs. I was definitely hurting after that! I went home pretty hungry and decided to stick to something simple, and really quick! I made a pasta bowl with some steamed string beans, tomato sauce, and a little but of parm cheese sprinkled on tip! It really hit the spot!
So colorful!
