Hit the gym on my way to work today for my Shoulders, traps and forearms workout. As I’ve mentioned before, legs are my absolute favorite workout, but I would have to say shoulders are second. I don’t know if it’s so much that I love actually working them, or that I love the way they look after a little hard work… Today’s workout was a good one. Managed to UP my weights for a few exercises again, actually grunted through my 4 sets of 10 reps front shoulder raise with a 17.5lb dumbbell. That was a big deal for me 🙂 If you’re a tank, don’t look down on me. 😉 Crushed my routine today with a little extra time left, so I tossed in 2 sets of chest dips just for “fun”. One day I will master that garbage. I left pretty satisfied with my 2 sets of 4 GOOD dips though! 🙂 Two weeks ago I could barely do one! Woot!
Now I’m going to rant a bit. I hate winter. Funny really, cause growing up I spent any time I could either at the ski hill, or at the freezing cold barn. **aside… I was huge into horses. I just realized how odd that could have sounded… With my current hatred of cold weather, you’d think I’d learn to take my gym bag into the house rather than leaving it in the car. I really don’t enjoy the shocking experience of slipping on an icy cold sports bra first thing in the morning…. really.
Second piece of purely random… WHY is it, when there is a whole HUGE change room of lockers to choose, that the moment I’m standing there in nothing but my towel, does the one other person who comes in feels the need to pick the locker right beside mine? Sigh… I won’t get in to my “old lady butt” story today… some other time…
Egg white omelets have become a huge part of my life right now. My mom has even been convinced to ditch her morning McDonald’s breakfast sandwich to enjoy one with me a few times. A little coconut oil, some eggs and a handful of sautéed veggies and you’re golden. If you make a good-sized batch of veggies, they seem to live in the fridge alright for a few days worth of omelet making.
I know the sprinkle of goat cheese is not for the strictly Paleo, but it was really good! 🙂
