Wednesday morning I wake up feeling good and refreshed. I actually slept really well and really long. I eat a turkey sub for breakfast and head to the gym. I’m working my biceps and traps today. I started off with the usual 20 minutes on the treadmill. Then it’s over to the weights. I was able to increase the amount of weights on everything I did so, that makes me really happy.
Lunchtime I eat a grilled chicken sandwich with bacon. I decide to head back to the gym in the evening. Another 40 minutes of cardio and I hit the hot tub. I got home and ate some grilled chicken with veggies and pasta for dinner.
Thursday morning I roll out of bed and my biceps feel good. I feel much better today than the previous 2 weeks after working my arms. I throw down some peanut butter toast and 2% chocolate milk and it’s off to the gym for some more cardio. I start with 20 minutes on the treadmill. Then I decide to hit the pool for some laps to finish off my morning cardio. I ended up doing 14 laps in the pool. I’m happy with that.
Lunchtime was a bean and rice burrito and then it’s back to the gym in the evening. I do a 40 minute cardio session. 20 minutes on the treadmill and another 20 minutes on the arc trainer. Then it’s off to the pool for some more laps. When I get home I ate another burrito and snack on some yogurt.
This week is rolling on like last week. I have 3 more days this week to burn some more calories. A challenge I look forward to. My heart is doing great. My beats per minute are holding steady around 125 when under stress from doing cardio. I have been sleeping really well lately. This is a direct connection to my cardio training. I love it. I can’t wait for softball season. I will actually be able to move and run this year.
