Eyes wide shut

by Joanne on January 6, 2009

As usual, I lumbered out of bed and down stairs I went to grab a get-me-going shake. I watched “How To Boil Water” while running 4 on the T/M.  They were making Bolonaise Sauce with Garlic-Parley Baguette and Arugula salad.  It inspired me to combine a recipe using red sauce yesterday with what I saw this morning. Come back tonight to see the results of this (hopefully) great inspiration.

As for the rest of the work out, you’d think running, if not watching something interesting on TV would’ve woken me up. Apparently not because I set up the hack squat for legs but then proceeded to sit into that hard, cold metal foot stand as if I were going to do leg presses. Ouch!   Turned my self around, stood up… I’m in the CORRECT position, BANG! the foot rest banged down to the next notch – I hadn’t locked it in place. Double OUCH!  Now I’m black and blue and haven’t even lifted a pound! 

Ignoring the pain, I managed to work my legs.  4 sets each 15 reps. minimum.  1.  Hack squat coupled with inner/outer thigh raises using the cable machine. 2.  Leg press coupled with walking lunges – 15 lb bar. 3. Leg curls coupled with seated calf raises. 4. Leg extensions coupled with ab work: leg lifts.

Shane and I managed 2.9 miles in 40 minutes. Better than yesterday. Tomorrow sounds like it is going to be worse than Monday, weather wise – bummer!

For breakfast:  

Banana-Raspberry Protein Shake & Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal

That’s all for now. Everyone have a super day.
