(Not) A Lazy Sunday

Good morning! I had a late start to the morning, but this girl is on fire! LOL I’ve cleaned the kitchen and living room already, and have big plans to work on a powerpoint and handouts for my team’s business training this Tuesday night (I have my own business educating and empowering young women and moms to improve their health and finances with doTERRA Essential Oils, and a huge part of that is mentoring/training my team of other product consultants). Right now I’m enjoying a plain latte with skim milk…mmm!

On a totally unrelated note, my 42 days to fitness are halfway gone! I can’t believe it. I’m so ready to finish this semester and get aboard our cruise ship! Just another 21 days to wait! 

My workouts have been going really well. I need to keep changing up the reps/sets to prevent a plateau. Yesterday my sister and I did 30-12-8-30 (reps) for biceps, triceps, and shoulders, and my arms were burning! They were exhausted by the end. Here’s the workout we did:

30-12-8-30 reps, increasing weight until you get back to 30 reps, then go light again:

Hammer bicep curls w/cable

Skull crushers on ball w/barbell

One arm lateral raises w/cable 

 

AMRAP (as many reps as possible) 1 minute:

Barbell bicep curls

Tricep press w/cable

Shoulder press w/cable

 

My diet, on the other hand, still needs some work. I’ve been better than before, but not perfect by any means. I see more salads in my future…it’s only 21 days, right? I can do this 😉 Here are some of my meals/snacks from last week, my new (short!) hair cut, and a wild onion that was left alone for too long in the dark…
