Ewwww I feel so sick today! My head cold is still trying to take over my body and I hate it. I am really trying my best to resist but I have a feeling I won’t be able to brush this one off easily this time. Too much partying last week, not enough sleep and hardly any working out. It is no wonder my body is hating me right now.
I’m sorry, can we please make up and be friends? I promise this week will be much quieter.
Even though I was feeling a bit rough this morning, I decided to start the day off on the right foot and head into the gym. I got there around 7am or so and decided just to do whatever I felt like. My brain wanted to get stuck into a super intense HIIT circuit style workout, but my body was saying “yeah I am having none of that”. So I dabbled with some legs and this is what I ended up with.
8mins warm up, cross trainer
Back squats – bar only (20kg), 3 x 10 reps
Overhead squats – bar only (20kg), 2 x 8 reps
Deadlifts – 30kg – 2 x 12
- 40kg – 3 x 8
- 50kg – 4
Calf press on leg press machine – 125kg – 3 x 15
One legged press on leg press machine – 35 – 3 x 10
Half press on leg press machine – 125kg – 2 x 8
377Kcal burnt during this workout.
Today for lunch I have brown rice, tuna, corn and kidney beans. I will add some salad to the mix at lunch time and then enjoy a high protein yogurt for lunch dessert. I will play it by ear with how I feel about dinner later on – right now I don’t know if I can make it to dinner, but I need to eat for my body to love me again! Wahhhhh.
Anyways, this blog post is insanely whingy and I apologise for that. Monday + head cold symptoms = GROSS.
Tomorrow will be a better day for sure J
