One Mile...in 9:44!!!

This was a huge accomplishment for me. I ran a mile on the treadmill in under ten minutes.

I know that's not much to a lot of people, but it was big to me.

Yesterday was a pretty good day (minus that delicious cupcake I ate at work).

Morning: Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred (Level One)

Breakfast: Strawberry smoothie with some protein powder

Lunch: Spinach salad (with feta, pecans, and craisins)

Snack: Apples with natural peanut butter...and a cupcake...oh and a rice krispies treat. dang.

Dinner: Bertolli's Chicken Parmesean (made by my sweetie) and a glass of red wine

Then it was off to the gym for some serious arm workouts. I started with the mile run on the treadmill. Then I did:

Bicep curls (12.5 lbs/ 3 sets of 15)
Seated Rows (60lbs/3 sets of 15)
Tricep Pull downs (50lbs/3 sets of 15)
Bench Press (65lbs/3 sets of 10-ish)
Lat Pull Downs (60lbs/3 sets of 15)
Preacher Curls (20lbs/3 sets of 15)
Tricep Kick Backs (10lbs/3 sets of 15)
Standing Rows (10lbs/3 sets of 15)
Chest Press with Dumbells (10lbs/3 sets of 15)
Tight Press with Dumbells (10lbs/3 sets of 15)

I'm pretty sure that's everything. Not bad if I do say so myself!

Then I went to watch my sweetie play a game of softball. When I got home I had a little treat - fat free Cool Whip with blackberries and rasberries. Yummy.

And then this morning...I slept in. Whoops. Guess I'll have to hit the gym tonight! Time for a lower body workout. :)

Any suggestions for a great lower body workout?

  1. I lost .2 pounds last week...good considering I overdid it over the weekend with bad food. :) Sunday we went to the grocery store and I loaded up on Weight Watchers food and yesterday was the first time in a long time I stayed under my points!


    Egg white omlet with salsa and beans with blueberries

    Turkey bacon (2 pieces) on whole wheat bread with tomatoes and lettuce

    Dinner-Salad with walnuts, dried apricots and goat cheese

    Snack-Banana and reduced fat cheese

    I have been doing the Jilian Michaels workouts...I forget the name of the series...I have done her back workout and front workout and both seriously work out my legs...I can barely walk the next day! Try those if you can.
