Daily Goals and Workout Results - 11/21

Friday, November 21, 2008

I lifted well today. I did one of my circuit workouts and once again it proved to be a great way to burn calories while lifting! Today was longer than some of my other circuits as I was having to change the weights of my DBs so that took a bit of time, but it also gave me a small rest between muscle groups so it worked well. I finished the workout with a 10 min walk on the treadmill, I was aiming for 20 mins but I could feel my body was starting to fatigue and I needed to get my post workout shake in and fast!!

I am pleased with how my program is shaping up despite the fact that I still can not run on the treadmill because of my knee. I am getting some great workouts in and I am seeing a difference in the mirror as well as with the measuring tape! That is encouraging! I just need to stay on course, and allow my knee to heal then I can get back to all those wonderful intervals and runs that I miss so much.

I am looking forward to this weekend, it is my weekly free or cheat meal! Yea! I am really strict with my diet 6 days out of the week so I allow myself one day to indulge - but not too much! For me my cheat day usually includes more oats and yogurt throughout the day which I love, sushi for lunch or dinner or soba noodles and of course my favorite treat goat cheese and whole grain bread! For my sweet tooth I like to add dark chocolate, 85%!!

Tomorrows workout will be leg work with some core and a walk. Hope everyone has a great day and a wonderful, productive weekend! Work hard, reach high!
