End of the week round up

I can not believe that it is Sunday already!  The time is absolutely flying past as per usual.  I was hoping that it was speeding past because the end of the year was near, but apparently it is just how life is these days.  

I have had a pretty good week this week to tell you the truth.  Here is a bit of a catch up as to what I have been up to the last couple of days.

Wednesday WOD
Cross trainer, 10mins, random, level 14 warm up
Single leg elevated BB lunges with 8kg (I am STILL sore from these!)
Calf raises with 142kg
Leg extensions with 56kg
Leg press with 52kg (have dropped my weight for these with more reps to I maintain my muscle, not make it bigger)
Squats with 10kg
Sit ups with 5kg and 3 x planks


Perfect post workout fuel of chocolate soy milk and a banana.  Very tasty and filling to tie me over until a bigger snack/sort of lunch a little bit later.  I was a little bit shocked to find out that my work canteen was going to charge me 0.10 for ice, if I didn't bring my own cup down.  What the?

Thursday turned out to be a rest day for me.  To be honest, I thought this would tie in nicely with the fact that us work girls were treated to a night out at the theater after work and I didn't want to drag my gym bag around London.

We were taken to dinner before hand at a lovely restaurant near Soho.  You know I took advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails.  Passion fruit Daiquiris please!  Along with a Pina Colada.  Just because.  Well, I like Pina Coladas!
Dinner was an entree of a Quesadilla and a main of a chicken and bacon cob salad.  I just kept eating and eating and everyone told me that it just didn't look like the salad was getting smaller at all.  Crazy large portions!  I ended up leaving what looked like a full meal on my plate.  I hate leaving food, but there just simply wasn't enough room for any more.

The show that we got to see was Le Miserables.  It was a great production, however I would be lying if I said I could follow the story and understand everything that was happening.  It was a long show as well at roughly 2.5 hours.  I didn't get home until after midnight.  Heavy!

Friday WOD
Cross trainer, random, level 14 warm up

DB bench press with 12kg
DB flys with 6kg
Alternating bicep curl with 10kg
Tricep pull down with 21kg
Calf raises with 142kg

Today was a bit of a jumble.  I am feeling like I need to switch my routine up - so next week I am starting a new program with lots more cardio and HIIT training.  More BodyRock as well, quite possibly in the morning. I have been building muscle for quite some time now and I feel that it is time to start cutting.  I just hope that I can get enough cardio etc with my shins still being sore.

Dinner tonight was supposed to be homemade chili again (we are all in LOVE with this recipe!) but by the time we were all ready to start thinking about dinner, it was past 8pm.  This meant that we would not have been able to sit down and eat until after 10ish or so.  

Home delivery to the rescue.  Ryan suggested Sushi and of course Robbie and I agreed.

This was just one of the 3 cartons that we shared.  I love sushi and when I am eating it, my eyes are always bigger than my stomach.  I swear I can only eat a few rolls before I start feeling full!  Ahh I just love wasabi though and any vessel that can get that into my mouth, has to be eaten.

We settled down to watch a movie and relax after such a late night on Thursday.  Well you know.  Not really a late night - it was only because it was a work night and I had to get up at 6am this morning :) 

Or I am just getting old... That sounds more like what happened there.

How has your week been?  What was the last thing that you saw at the theater, if anything?
