Happy Monday FitFam!!!!!
I just want to say BIG CONGRATS TO MY TEAM THE PATRIOTS FOR WINNING THE SUPERBOWL YESTERDAY (I plan on posting a YouTube video on my excitement).
My workout today consisted of leg day and abs – no, no cardio (this was on purpose of course) but thanks to some bloggers, whom I read their latest post about cardio .. have made it so I get nightmares thinking about cardio exercises, and now it will haunt me until I do it.. >.< thanks guys, thanks a lot. Now I may be forced to do cardio tomorrow unless I come up with a good excuse.
Today’s leg day wasn’t the BEST, but wasn’t the WORST. I figured I needed to work on strength gains in my legs more, because the endurance squats didn’t help me to build the strength I needed to lift more, but helped with my ability to continue through the squat workout without stopping midway. I did the deadlifts and squats using about 70% of my 1RM.
I also succeeded in my push up challenge reps from yesterday ( I will post the video) , today is a rest day in the challenge, yay for me! 😀

Today, I realized my hatred for lunges have grown. I do not like them and I am horrible at them most days. LOL, Maybe not in the eyes of someone else but in my opinion. Here is a secret: I used to suck really really bad at lunges, but now, I just suck badly. Hahaha. half the time, I do them quick as possible to get them done and the other half of the time, I do them half ass to say I did them. Today, I didn’t do either, I just did them and dealt with it, from my face expressions you could tell, I was not a fan of them and that I couldn’t wait to move on to the next exercise. My push ups came easy again! thankfully 🙂 considering once the number of reps increase the more face plants I will do. LOL.
