It is so handy having a little gym in one's apartment complex! Especially one that opens at 5am. And they recently added a bunch of free weights, so now I can always get in a half decent workout when I'm in a pinch (like today).
|Emily Stirling.... drool. Some of the best legs in the biz, if you ask me.|
Now where was I? Oh yes, full-body workout. I didn't really have a plan going into this workout. My chest, quads, hams, and core were still a bit sore from earlier in the week, so I knew I'd be focussing on other body parts more. I also know that I'll be wearing a shoulder/back/arm-bearing top tonight at the club, so wanted to target those spots as well. I did 4 supersets of back and shoulder exercises (2 exercises each); 4 supersets of plie squats, adductor (what, lifts?), and calf raises; and 3 supersets of tricep pushups, hammer curls, calf presses, and crunches.
My muscles were nice and warm and tight after this! I definitely worked up an appetite for breakfast. And it just so happened that last night I had prepared an amazing breakfast for John and me. I knew I'd be starving when I got in, so it was something that just needed to be re-heated. John was kind enough to scramble up some egg whites to go with this otherwise vegetarian dish: http://ohsheglows.com/2011/02/22/sweet-potato-oatmeal-breakfast-casserole/
Oh.My.Gosh. Like having dessert for breakfast. This is definitely a must-try.
What a way to kick off an amazing weekend! I can't wait to see what the rest of the day has in store :)
