First Training session!
Got to the gym early, therefore = warm up
10 minutes/100 calories on the walk/jog elliptical thing
5 minutes/? calories on the treadmill walking at a pace of 3.5
Trainer, Ashley was right on time (okay maybe like a minute or two late because she had to find me). After I did my five minutes on the treadmill, it was time to pump it up.
Pull ups - Grabbed the bar jumped as high as I could go (while holding onto the bar) and then ease down as slow as possible. 15 reps
Tried dead lift squats, but failed because I have bad knees, so wall/ball squats - Huge ass ball behind my back and eased down into squat position then up again. 15 reps
Jumping squats - Arms bend with fists by my shoulders, jump with arms moving in the air then as I come back down into a squat with fists back at my shoulders. 15 reps
Weighted squats - Bicep curled holding 10lb weights by shoulders, go down into a squat, come back up raising weights over my head then back down again. 15 reps
Push-ups - Knees on the ground, then push…up… 15 reps
Butt Busters - On hands and knees, lift right leg up like a dog then bring in a circle around to my arm then round back. 20 reps each side
Deep V’s - lie on your back with legs off the ground, arms stretched flat then bring both legs and arms up to touch toes (or attempt to) 15 reps
Pacman - On back, legs in a 90 degree angle and calves perpendicular to the ground, arms by hips barely off the ground, then crunch! pulling legs/ head closer together (like a PACMAN!) 15 reps
I did also do five minutes of walk/jog elliptical while trying to remember what I ate for the last two days because, like an idiot, I forgot my food log on the dining table.
Cool down - 6 minutes walking on the treadmill at 3.2 speed and 6 inclined.
After my session, I decided I needed to go to the store to pick up a few things.
Potassium - because bananas make my tummy hurt, but I get bad leg cramps
10lb bag of Idaho potatoes
A few avocados
Pink lady apples (yum)
For lunch, I made this oven roasted parmesan broccoli. I ate the whole crown!
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel the outer layer of the broccoli stalks. Cut the broccoli lengthwise keeping the stalk and broccoli florets intact. (The long broccoli spears should resemble trees.) Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to coat and roast until nicely caramelized, about 15 minutes. Turn broccoli over and sprinkle with grated the Parmesan. Cook until the Parmesan melts, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter and serve immediately.
Dinner was pretty delicious, but…I did eat too much.
