I'm not really sure if I've been doing Jamie Eason's livefit for 15 days or not. I'm just trying to get the workouts in as I can I believe I'm close to 15 days. I guess I could go back and start counting to where I started on April 17. So I guess I'm a day or two behind not too shabby. Anyway, I meant to do this workout yesterday but I had to get to work by 8:30 which meant I have to leave by 7:45 which meant that if I was going to the gym in the morning I had to be there at 6 am. Of course the snooze button was hit and I didn't get up until 6:15 not enough time to get to the gym, workout, come home shower, eat breakfast and prepare my lunch/snacks for the day. I thought that after my running class I could do legs.
Little did I realize that the 10k class I signed up for was much different from my 5k class. I knew it would be more running I just didn't realize how much more there would be on the first day. We ran a total of about 4 miles outside and it was HOT. We had to stop in the shade a few times because we were getting overheated. We also ran up the building of a 6 floor parking garage. It was tough but I made. However, I was too tired, hot, and sweaty to go back into the gym to lift legs. I decided to try to go to the gym in the morning and had myself a really nice cool shower and an awesome salad for dinner. I should have taken a picture of the salad. I loved it. Romaine, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, half of a chicken breast sprinkled just slightly with low sodium taco seasoning, egg whites (really trying to get up to 5 egg whites in a day and does anybody else feel guilty about throwing away all those yolks), a tiny bit of cheddar cheese and salsa as a salad dressing. Using salsa as a salad dressing is great!!! Low calorie and gives the salad a little kick.
This morning I was able to get up and get the gym by 6:20. My legs workout looked like this
Leg Extension: Set 1 80 x 12 didn't really read that its supposed to be 10 reps whoops; set 2 and 3 85 lbs for 10 reps each
Wide Stance Barbell Squat- 3 sets 45 lbs 10 reps each. Yay! I used the standard barbell with no additional weights! I'm excited I graduated to that
Walking Barbell Lunge each leg 3sets 15 lbs dumbbells for 10 reps each- this were tough. I think it was because I ran yesterday and my hammies were tight.
Single-Leg Barbell Deadlift- each leg 3 sets 30 lbs of 10 reps each - I need to be careful with these. My lower back was starting to hurt on the very last reps of the third set.
Seated Leg Curl- 3 sets 70 lbs of 10 reps each couldn't do lying leg curl no machine for that
Seated Calf Raises- 3 sets of 180 lbs for 10 reps each
Standing Calf Raises 3 sets of 20 lbs for 10 reps each
I'm trying to keep my protein intake up. I actually found some protein bars that taste awesome. They are called pro crunch lite in the chocolate deluxe flavor. They've got 15 grams of protein for the whole bar and they are delicious. Only problem is that they are 190 cal for the entire bar and I try to keep my snacks at 150 cal or under. I just have to adjust my dinner so that I don't go over my calorie intake of 1500-1800.
