Killer Arms & Glutes
Or should I say killed!! I totally wrecked them yesterday in a nasty workout. I don't know what I was thinking. Sometimes my energy gets the better of me. I lifted really hard with my arms using heavier weight than normal. I still had energy so I decided to work on my glutes. They felt saggy since I had been sitting on my keester all day long writing. I did 3 sets of lunges with 20 reps and 15 pounds in each hand. After this my legs were shaking. So then I decided to balance it our with 3 sets of deadlifts with 11 reps and a 30 lb bar. To ice the cake I did my favorite exercise - kneeling cable kickbacks. After 3 sets of 15 with 65 pounds on each leg I actually had to sequester my husband into pushing me up the stairs. Oh Clean Eaters... I think I overdid it. MY LEGS HURT!!
So I pumped out a bunch of chapters yesterday while happily working alongside my daugher, Kiersten, who was finishing up her final paper of her 3rd for Queen's University. We munched on some dark chocolate to make the day a little more enjoyable!
Now, I am heading into Toronto. I will be a guest on Virgin Radio this afternoon between 5 and 6pm EST. You can listen online here. The Listen Live Link is at the top of the page.
Have a great day Clean Eaters!!
