In fact, starving today. What’s up with that? I know…vigorous exercise & potential fat loss. Yay (she says, trying to remain optimistic).
If you saw my facebook postings today I had jury duty. I reported & went through most of the void dire but was excused without cause by the defense. Dwayne Boone of Beverly, NJ was indicted for witness tampering in a 2008 case. I think it’s a privilege to be a part of our judicial system. Maybe if I didn’t get paid for the day I might feel differently. I was bummed to be excused. I decided it was the “right thing to do” to come to the office instead of taking a day off.
Today was leg day—I got up & came to the gym before work. Had a good long workout & still managed to be ready to get to the courthouse before 8:00 AM.
Plie squats – 95 lbs
Romanian deads – 85 lbs
Step ups – 20/15 lbs
Leaning lunges 25/20 lbs
Box jumps using 8 risers & the platform.
I wanted to lift heavier but wanted to be able to walk tomorrow. Last week my leg work left me sore for 4 days. I do think my sinus infection might have had something to do with how long it took to recover. But just in case I went a little lighter than I did last week.
I did ab crunches & Russian twists on the ball & 3 – 60 second planks.
Finished up with 45 minutes of 2 to 1 minute intervals on the ARC trainer; the tension was at 25 but the incline was at default. I love that machine but am trying to mix up my cardio. Some steady state, some intervals, some tabata & functional stuff.
I have been amiss with my nutrition. I had an extra carb last night. I got hungry after dinner – before bed & had an English muffin. It was YUMMY. It was not a smart move. Today I had to go to the commissary. I bought some nuts. I found chipotle cashews. OH MY GOD! I had to put the can in my drawer & lock it to keep from eating it anymore.
Not that it’s an excuse – I just realized it’s hormonal hunger not real hunger. Have to learn to control that & not let it rule my hand-to-mouth disease.
