Shred Day 19: I'm Getting Stronger

Today was a good day.

It started with a nice breakfast buffet with mrC at the hotel and then spending some time together before he went to work. When he left I headed to the fitness center to do my strength training workout.

My workout ---> 10 minutes warm-up walking on the treadmill, upper body weight exercises: back, biceps, triceps, shoulders, and chest, some planks, lower body exercises: leg extensions and hamstring curls, then a 10 minute cool down walk on the treadmill.

I've been pushing myself to use heavier weights and it is paying off. I'm feeling stronger and liking what I see when I flex my muscles.

 I decided to do some yoga to stretch out my muscles. First of all, yoga just feels amazing and my muscles are ALWAYS happier after. Second, this happened when I decided to practice headstands...

I have been trying for at least 6 months to do that! I am definitely getting stronger.

Today was feast day, so I was all about food, food, food.



Dinner: I ate every last piece of seafood, but only about 1/3 of the pasta.

Snacks: the chocolate Shakeology was my favorite snack

How do you measure your strength?

Can you do a headstand?

  1. That pasta dish looks delicious! I used to do yoga this past spring and really enjoyed it but it was too expensive where I went so I didn't keep up w it. I need to look into somewhere else.


I love comments!
