After an almost 2 week hiatus from working out (due to a trip and my husband coming home) it was back to the grindstone this morning. And lemme tell you, things were a bit rough! I can tell that I will be a little sore tomorrow, my muscles felt a lot tighter than normal. I also wasn’t as quick as usual on my run. It took me a minute to get into a good groove and pace and then just when I thought I was flying, I looked down at my Garmin and I was really only jogging at a 10:00 pace! I ended up running 2 miles in 18:28.
- Walking Lunges
- Midway Bicep Curls
- Plie squats
- Reverse lunges with knee lift
- Upward Row
- Bridge Raise & Lower
- Tricep Kickback
- Side Planks
- Toe taps with weight
- Reverse crunches
- Oblique side to side toe tap (this one is hard to explain, but very effective!)
On another note, something very exciting happened last night: my husband and I made our first “blended” dinner together!. He eats meat and dairy and I started following a vegan diet after he left for Afghanistan, so I have been a little worried on how we are going to adapt to these new changes. If it is anything like last night, we will have no problems at all!
The first thing that made mealtime easy was his birthday present…..
The second thing that will be very important when trying to feed both of us is planning!! I want meals to be easy and cost effective, which is why the concept of a blended dinner is so appealing. One meal done two ways will be much easier, cheaper, and less stressful over the long run than trying to prepare two completely different dinners every night. Last night’s dinner was our favorite style of burgers!
Hopefully all dinners will be this easy to please; however, I have a feeling that this is gonna take some hard work and planning. But I have complete confidence that it can be done!
