4 miles on my good ol’ treadmill and then I went up to the gym to meet up with my sister and get a pump class in. There was a sub today and she officially took the lead as my favorite pump teacher ever and I don’t throw that term around lightly.
Every move that we did worked a million muscle groups at the same time. She threw in some cardio intervals that were fun and crazy hard and overall I felt like I got an awesome workout and am more than ready for a rest day tomorrow.
Two favorite moves that we did:
1. Plank (on your hands) with a paper plate under each foot. I had to modify because my stomach kind of got in the way but we did around the worlds (bring both knees towards your chest and push legs out to sides to make a circle and back to plank position). Vs (start out with feet spread apart and bring them in towards your chest and bring the feet together, push them back out to form a V. Last we brought both knees towards right side of chest, back to plank and repeat on left side. I hope that made a tiny bit of sense because it was killer and I want you to try it.
2. Plie squat Click on link for proper form:)
(Mom, don’t worry, I will wash my hair before the family party tonight…I know she was wondering)
When you stand back up then raise your arms up (one in front and one to the side). Repeat until your shoulders want to die and then switch arms (the other one to the side and front).
Wow, I should be a personal trainer with those incredible descriptions;)
After the gym I went to Costco with my favorite Costco shopping buddy. Sorry Billy but you were bumped down because my sis is way more fun with the samples. She doesn’t get embarrassed by me running from one table to the next and she will wait in the long lines to get each and every sample. She will even give me her sushi (California roll) sample because she doesn’t like sushi.
Other samples included: Chips and salsa, hummus, chicken sandwich, yogurt, licorice, beef jerky and dessert.
We ended up getting one of each flavor of popsicle which totaled 8 flavors.
We also walked out with one of these for our family party tonight.
Now I am relaxing on the couch and about to make some wraps for lunch (all of those samples were just appetizers).
What would you put in these tortillas for a wrap?
-Of course I am going to load it with turkey and I wish I bought some hummus to go in it too…maybe I will have to go back to Costco.
Do you wear your running shoes to do cross-training?
-I used to but not anymore…my running shoes are strictly for running!!!
Anyone out there like my sister and NOT like sushi? Do you know anyone that doesn’t like sushi?
