Another day waking up super late, another lunch at 4:30 PM. Oops. I was really going to try waking up earlier to try to get back on schedule, but I might as well sleep while I can, right? I also didn’t set my alarm, so that didn’t help.
Upon rising at the crack of noon, I was in the mood for a filling, nut-buttery breakfast. Gina’s cookie dough cereal was the choice du jour!
Plus a clementine.
Then it was time for biology homework and learning about caterpillars that pretend to be snakes as a defense mechanism. Reason #458 to not like bugs.
Let’s talk about TRX bands! They’re one of my favorite pieces of fitness equipment right now since my gym recently installed a large turf space that includes a TRX frame. It’s like my new jungle gym!
I was intensely awkward trying to take this photo without anyone noticing.
Yesterday’s workout was 25 minutes on the elliptical followed by an arm circuit centered around the TRX bands.
Those TRX tricep extensions owned me. I can definitely feel it today!
Some of the exercises:
For today’s workout I did 20 minutes on the arc trainer and 10 minutes on the stair master before doing Julie’s 8 minute ab tabata and more TRX ab exercises (this flattering frog kick move and pikes). I wasn’t going to go on the stair master, but honestly, I wanted to keep watching Giada on Food Network, which I had started doing on the arc trainer already. It was her breakfast episode— can you blame me??
I’m still being careful not to over-exert myself in any of these workouts. I can definitely tell that my stamina is going downhill, but that is a-okay with me right now. It’ll be interesting when I have to run the mile at school though. 😉
My mom and dad went out for lunch while I was still sleeping, and they brought back delicious leftovers! I finished my mom’s spicy pasta dish that had sausage and ricotta cheese. Added on top of spinach as “dressing.”
And half a raisin scone they picked up from The Kneaded Bread that was calling my name from the depths of its box.
Scones are my faveeee.
I hope you have a nice evening, everyone!
So tell me:
Do you like using TRX bands?
What is your favorite TRX move?
Does television or music ever keep you going on a cardio machine?
