Gun Show- Now Selling Tickets!

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

Yesterday was a great day!

First thing- it was leg day. My favorite!!

Second thing...Kwame Kilpatrick ex-mayor of Detroit was found guilty on a bunch of Federal charges. Hopefully Detroit can start to make a come back now.

Thirdly...I took a picture of my "guns" yesterday...check it out!!
Still a work in progress, but can I say DAMN! I love the definition in my arms!!

Fourth...One of the guys I met on vacation with my husband in Jamaica shared the link to my blog here. We met at Couples Resort while he was on his honeymoon. Since then I have remained friends with him and his wife (ex) via FB. So nice of him to share my story! Thanks G!!

Ok. Onto my recap from Monday.

Eating was good.
Breakfast was my oatmeal with applesauce and 3 hard boiled eggs. Lunch was celery, scallions, hummus, half a can of tuna and 1 hard boiled egg. I needed to boil more eggs and I scrapped the steak once I found out how much saturated fat is in 4 oz! Holy crap, no thanks.

For a snack I had an Apple Pie Larabar about 4pm.

Then I did my dry run at 5pm out to Elite Fit to see how long it takes me to get there. I am either going to have to leave about 10 minutes to 5 OR see if they can do a 5:45 class to give me a bit of a lead time. I got there yesterday at 5:36. Rush hour.

After that was back to Powerhouse to work with Eric. He kept making comments about my gun photo. Ya know...look at those weapons of mass destruction...your my hero...you can be my bodyguard....LOL. Funny boy and a smart ass.  Its almost like a brother type relationship with him and I love that.

Anyways. So I warmed up for a bit on the treadmill to stretch the legs. No running. 4.3 mph at a 10 incline back down to a 6 incline for a mile. Just about 14 minutes.

Then we did Upright leg presses and lunges using a bar with weight doing alternating feet back. Three sets of each but did a fourth set of presses doing a drop set. I will have to look today to see how much weight we used. I am not sure. I had 4 plates on each side but it wasnt the big 25 lb plates. Maybe 10 or 15 lbs each. Drop set you use the heaviest weight, go to fail, drop a plate off each side...repeat til fail, drop another weight...etc.

From there we went and did a killer cardio workout. You wanna know what it is? Only 5 minutes so super short but my HR went up into the 180's so serious workout.

1. Burpee
2. Stand up from the burpee and jump up into high knees one time hitting your hands onto your knees
3. Jump back down and do 5 fast mountainclimbers
4. Jump back up and do 5 jump lunges

Serious shit right there. Do that circuit for a minute. Then rest for 15 seconds. Repeat for another minute. Rest for 15 seconds...Repeat for 5 minutes. Oh baby.

All in all burned 494 calories.

Eric recommended me to get a protein shake from the gym after that workout. And I did. I was glad I did too. I was already shaking and I know my sugar would have crashed on the way home. So I had a strawberry banana smoothie made with apple juice and a protein powder. The sign said it was 311 calories give or take so I estimated 350.

From there I stopped at Dicks Sporting Goods. They have those really short bootie sort of workout shorts and I have always wanted a pair but never liked my inner thighs because of the loose skin.

WELL I was VERY surprised. They looked really cute and I bought a pair. I wont be wearing them for a bit yet because it isnt warm enough BUT once it gets a little warmer, I will definitely wear them to workout. Plus it gives me a chance to get my legs more in shape. I know those little shorts will creep up a bit so I really want to tone my legs.

From there I came home and had dinner. I was still ravenous. So tuna, pretzels, hummus, a couple pieces of lunchmeat chicken and a little bit of steak was my dinner. And I was STILL hungry. But my casein shake was 9pm so that helped to fill the cracks and not leave me overfull.

This morning I woke up at 155.5. I am WAY cool with that.

Today is working with Eric this AM. Upper body baby.
So Today I am definitely going to do some running to flush out the legs.

Here is my food log (for now) for the day.

Breakfast: Because I am working out this morning, I did my heavy oatmeal pancake thing. My side of fruit was a clementine

Lunch: celery, scallions, hummus, tuna, 2 hard boiled eggs

Dinner: A tuna salad....2 cups lettuce, 1/2 can of tuna, hummus

Snack: Casein shake

I am out of my wheatgrass so I am going to have to pick up more.

My mom got me the Kinect Zumba Core game and I cant wait to try it. I will probably do that tomorrow with shoulders.

Thursday will be legs again with Eric. Woo hoo! And then RPM that evening. I cant wait.

Friday is the 1 year anniversary of the tornado so we have a 5k that day at the Metropark to commemorate. So no Zumba for me that night but it is another reason I HAVE to run today.

Thats my news for now! Have a great day!!

Tip of the Day:


  1. Holy shit - look at those arms! Wowsa! LOVE IT. And love you!

  2. Look at those PIPES! Holy crap! AWESOME!
