Workout Wednesday: 2-15-12

… aka, “Day 7 without sugar”.

I’ve done the “sugar fast” before… but I always wind up going back. I am hoping to stay on the proverbial straight and narrow this time…Regardless: all I can is take it one day, one meal at a time.

I work out with a trainer twice a week, and Wednesday is one of my workout days since this is my work-from-home day. I take my lunch break at the gym.

Today my trainer had me do 2 circuits of 3 sets of exercises. Since my arms were still sore from last Saturday’s workout, we did the lower body.

1st circuit:

  1. 15 reps on each leg with the Butt Blaster… I don’t remember the weights for any of the sets (sometimes I don’t pay attention to this when I work out with the trainer)
  2. 20 jump squats
  3. 12 reps on each leg with the Butt Blaster (but it was heavier)
  4. 20 jump squats
  5. 10 reps on each leg with the Butt Blaster (but it was heavier still)
  6. 20 jump squats

During the second circuit I got the bright idea to have her take some photos of me exercising. Wouldn’t THAT pretty up my blog!

2nd circuit:

  1. 15 reps on a leg curl machine
  2. step ups on the leg curl bench — 15 for each leg
  3. lunges from the machine I was working on to the end of the gym and back
  4. 12 reps on a leg curl machine (with increased weight)
  5. step ups on the leg curl bench — 15 for each leg
  6. lunges
  7. 10 reps on a leg curl machine (with increased weight)
  8. step ups on the leg curl bench — 15 for each leg
  9. lunges

I have to keep my arms out when I do lunges for balance. True story.

By the time I got to this last set of lunges I was pretty tired and pretty DONE. We went over to the stretching area and she stretched out my arms and legs, and then my hour was up.

I’m always happy at the end of a workout. Uh, mostly because it’s over.

I might not look it, but I am jumping up and down inside. In a sitting-on-the-couch way.

BTW: I’m now 2 full days back on regular food, and I think bread is bothering my tummy. More on this to come…

  1. Ok. YOU are actually motivating ME to get back to the gym after 4 months off. Great job!! You look awesome. And stop eating bread!! Lol

    • heh heh!! Thanks Paulie. I’m going to do a post about the few pounds and % in body fat that I’ve put back on since November, too… I wanted to do it all in this post but it was getting late and I thought the post was good enough as is focusing on my exercise for that day. It’s good to get motivation, no matter where it comes from… and I’m actually honored that I can inspire YOU =)
