Day 3


Well, I may have missed my 5 Mile Long run over the weekend but I did not miss Day 3 of my New Training Plans that I completed yesterday, Tuesday, 6/15/10 at the gym. 

I was a little worried on how I would do last night at the gym due to me just getting over my cold and all, however it went VERY WELL and was quite sweaty I might add!  =) 

Here is what I did below: 

Ab Exercises    

  • Bar Crunch (2 sets of 20)
  • Ball twist (2 sets of 20)
  • Bicycle crunches (2 sets of 40)
  • Flutter kicks (2 sets of 20)
  • Frog crunch (2 sets of 20)

    After completing the above last week on Day 1 I felt much more comfortable with all the moves and was able to perform them much better last night.  I only did 20 reps each due to lack of time as I got to the gym late. 

    Toning Training Plan     

    DAY 3Weights (Legs) 

  • Double Leg Lift (3 sets of 10 reps)
  • Burpees  (2 sets of 10 reps)
  • Side lunge & lift (2 sets of 10 reps each side)
  • Booty blaster (3 sets of 10 reps each leg)
  • Lunge jumps (2 sets of 20 reps)
  • Stability ball pass (1 set of 10 reps)

    All of the above moves were really good and made me SWEAT a lot!  I was literally dripping sweat off my forehead after I finished the last move.  I highly recommend them, as I felt sore immediately that evening in the areas that I had hit. 

    16-Week 15K Training Plan

    2 miles @ 12:00

    The run was exactly what it says EASY and I actually ended up running it at 11:30 per mile instead of 12:00 per mile as I just have a hard time running that slow now, which is funny because I remember not so long ago struggling at that pace.  I also did some “fast sprints” between 6mph and 8mph at the end of my run over a 3 minute period. 


    My EATS were very good today!  =) 

    Blueberry Oatmeal

    Peanut Butter on Whole Wheat w/Veggies

    Red Chicken, Rice & Broccoli

    Bowl of Cherries



    And, as a REWARD for my Healthy Eats & New Training Plans I saw a really good number on the scale this morning….that I have not seen in a long time

    Check out my Weekly Weigh In page to see what it was……..=) 


    I will be out of town at a Family Renuion between Thursday, 6/17/10 & Monday, 6/21/10 so I will be M.I.A. until next week unless I am able to find a few minutes to sneak on and do a quick post but I kinda doubt it espically since my laptop decided to start moving like a “snail” last night and I have to try to figure that out now (always something isn’t it)!

    Anyway, I apologize for being so infrequent with my posts lately……..things have just gotten so CRAZY BUSY in my life these days and I am struggling to keep up!  Hopefully, upon my return things will start to settle a bit. 

    I’ll miss you guys and promise to have a long post with lots of pictures next week upon my return.  =)

      Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling well. Glad to see you are better though,and I am really excited about trying out some of the moves from your training program! Have fun at the reunion!

      I’m so glad that you enjoyed the slow cooker pepper steak! 😀 I love hearing from people when they’ve tried the recipes (especially when they were enjoyed…haha.)

      I love that you’re posting your workout plans! The toning exercises sound fabulous (and intense!) I’m always on the lookout for new exercises, and I’ll be adding these to my routine.

      I have just started running and have worked up to 2 miles, 3 times per week. I am amazed that you do your toning and running all in one day! I don’t think I could make my run if I did a toning workout beforehand. Did you find that it really boosted your weight loss though? I have been doing ab work and push ups every day, but that’s about it. I have a 5 month old and don’t really have the time or ‘want’ to take the time to workout when I have been away from him all day!
      Love your blog! Keep up the good work!

        That is great that you are already up to 2 miles, 3 times a week after you just started running. It took me awhile to get there back in the day and again when I first started to try and lose weight. Keep going, it gets easier every day (week, month, year, etc.), I PROMISE!!! Like today I did 5 miles and it felt great. Back in the day I would have died trying to do that. Well being a “single” mom for a long time and now a full time working, mom, wife, etc. I do not have a lot of time so I have to get as much in when I get to the gym as I can so I have always done my abs, toning (weights) and cardio (running) while I am there, which works out great for me since I only can get to the gym 2 days a week. However, it did take time to get used to doing it all “at one visit” and some days are better then others, but I always feel great when I leave and YES I have noticed a huge difference in my body by doing this. I read that doing toning (weights) before cardio you burn more calories during your routine and I can attest to this. I haven’t lost a tone of weight as you can see on my Weekly Weigh In’s page but I sure have seen a huge difference in the way my body looks and I know I have lost weight and gained muslce as I look much more “toned” and “defined” then I did earlier in the year. Find what works best for you! That is what I tell everyone…….as everyone is different.

        Thank you for following my blog and you keep up the good work too! =)
