Leg Day

There’s nothing like hitting the gym after you stuffed your face for Thanksgiving !

And nothing like going to your gym after visiting a different one while you were back in your hometown.

Last Tuesday I found the closest LA Fitness to my mom’s place and I was honestly disappointed. For being there at 8 am I found lots of dumbbells and plates scattered on the floor and dust bunnies as big as Brina, my mom’s yorkie! Gross right?! People have allergies and that’s not cool to leave clumps of hair and fuzzies just hanging out on the weight floor. It made me really appreciate the cleanliness of my normal gym!!

Leg Day 

My gym days are getting cut shorter, lots of other life things to take care of at the moment but when I can make it in there for even a short time I want to make it count. 

Also I’m thinking I need to lean out a little bit, change things up for now. Going to try and up my cardio, and I’m also going to try and cut out eating meat and chicken to an extent. I’ve considered maybe trying to count my macros but I don’t know that I want to deal with that hassle right now.

Quick Leg Day

I was too tired and too full to go hard on this Wednesday Leg Day but I wanted to get some work in anyway.

One of my favorite college friends was back in town and scheduled a girls dinner so I put my workout clothes on and geared up to give her big hugs. Of course they picked a pasta restaurant (who doesn’t love pasta?)  and I ate half my 4 cheese ravioli with Alfredo, minced garlic, spinach and sundries tomatoes. It was heavenly but probably not a good pre workout meal.

Muscle Measurements

I started keeping track of what I ate a few weeks ago – they always say fitness is 80% of what you eat and 20% of what you do.

I forgot to take body measurements then , and I lost the numbers I had when I first started working out, so I’m starting now. My pictures tell me I’m improving but the numbers give me a clearer picture as to where.

Bust 39.5″

Chest 33.5″ measured right under bust

Waist 32.75″ measured at smallest point

Hips 41.5″ measured at widest point

Thighs 25.5″ measured at widest

Calves 15″

Biceps 10.75″ measure with arm out



Leg Day Saturday

Sitting here drinking some chamomile tea, watching Aladdin wishing the kitchen would clean itself and thinking about how well I pushed myself at the gym yesterday. I was feeling tired, more so sleepy after eating a nice lunch and I knew the rest of my household was going to take a nap but I told myself to get my butt up and go to the gym. And I did.

Leg Day Wednesday

Sometimes your brain tells you that you can’t do things, that you aren’t strong enough and that it would be easier to just put it off for some other time. I’m pushing those thoughts out my mind and discovering that I am stronger than I sometimes give myself credit for. You should too!
