New Shirt!

I got my new shirt today and I am more excited about this shirt than any other shirt that I have ever boughten!

Ohmygosh, it is just the perfect shirt 🙂 I think I saw it on Pinterest or something and I just followed the link and ended up buying it!

So tonight was legs! Woohoo! I get my ‘Will Squat For Peanut Butter’ shirt, on leg day, how perfect is that?! I squated 115 pounds today, I am very proud of myself 🙂

So this week I officially started softball (Varsity!) and my lifting/workouts/push-ups and pull-ups were definitely lacking…. But I do have good reasons. I was just so busy and tired that lifting at 9:30 just didn’t seem like a good idea. Also, I have had elbow problems for as long as I can remember and this week my throwing elbow really started acting up, so I decided not to do Wednesday’s lift. I felt really bad skipping it but I knew that doing curls and rows would not be the best idea with my elbow hurting and all. But I’m icing everyday and hopefully my elbow will get better and I can get back into the swing of things! 🙂

Tomorrow I will most definitely go for a run and get a good hard workout in, I really need it! 🙂

See you tomorrow!

Push-up PR

Hello 🙂

Wednesday’s workout was biceps and back and it went really well! Here’s what I did:

And (I am very proud of myself for this) after that workout I needed to get more push-ups in and I did 60 push-ups in a row! I am so proud of myself! 🙂

Anyway, Thursday I didn’t do a set workout. I had softball for an hour and a half and after that I was exhausted so I decided that would be my workout for the day 🙂

Yesterday, was leg day! (My favorite :)) I squated 105 pounds! I was also very proud of that too! This week was just full of accomplishments for me 🙂 here’s the workout:

You can see that I didn’t actually do the deadlifts….. I decided not to do them because I knew my form wasn’t quite right and I didn’t want to hurt myself. I’m going to learn how to do them properly though! That way next week I can do them 🙂

Today was a really lazy day and I didn’t actually workout…. But I will tomorrow! I think tomorrow I will go for a run, I haven’t run in a while.

Have a great night! 🙂

Lazy Day

Good evening!

I hope everyone had a lovely day 🙂

I had some delicious food today! My breakfast looked like this:

20130319-223729.jpg
I had some Greek yogurt with peanut butter and strawberries, blueberries and a banana! It was delicious 🙂

I didn’t really do much today. I couldn’t go out and do anything because of all the snow we got here (12-14 inches!). So I pretty much stayed inside, ate food, watched Supernatural, read my book and worked out…. It was a great day 🙂

Lunch!

20130319-224028.jpg
Lunch was equally as delicious as breakfast! I made myself a pizza and with that I had a mango, green beans and some green pepper 🙂

And my workout today was some cardio and abs 🙂

20130319-224247.jpg
It was a very tiring working, especially considering my arms were sore along with my legs, but oh well, it was a good workout nonetheless 🙂

Have a wonderful night everyone 🙂

Arm Workout!

Hello 🙂

Today was quite a busy day for me! I had softball tryouts from 4-6 (which I did very well at :)), then I came home and went for a short 2ish mile run. After that I went down to the basement to get my lifting in for today 🙂

Here’s what I did!

20130318-213824.jpg

My mom has also started lifting with me and it’s great! 🙂 it’s awesome to have a lifting partner!

I made a delicious protein shake after my workout: one scoop of protein powder, a banana and a fair amount of milk. I don’t really measure hen I make smoothies/shakes… I pretty much just throw everything in a blender and see what happens 🙂

Well, that’s all for tonight! Have a great night everyone 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope everyone had a great St. Patty’s Day!
I spent mine just lounging around the house, pretty much doing nothing except reading and watching Supernatural (my new tv show addiction!! So good! :))

For breakfast I made myself a fried egg sandwich and a green smoothie, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!

I was going to make some peanut butter today but…. That didn’t exactly happen. Oh well, I’ll make some later this week.
My legs are super sore from yesterday’s leg workout and I love it! Walking up the stairs was a challenge 🙂

Well, tomorrow is chest/triceps and I’m very excited! Have a great night 🙂

Leg Day

Hi everyone! 🙂

Today I did my leg workout that I was supposed to do yesterday. And let me tell ya, this was a good one!

20130316-214438.jpg
I think leg workouts are my favorite. I always feel so strong.
I workout in my basement, so today, when I was done with my workout, I had to walk up the stairs and that was brutal!! Right now I’m sitting at the computer, and I know as soon as I get up, my legs are going to be super sore! But honestly, it’s going to feel great 🙂 I really like feeling sore after a workout because it makes me feel so accomplished and I know that I’m getting stronger 🙂

Have a great night! Tomorrow I’m going to make some peanut butter! 🙂

Four New Workouts!

Hello!

Due to some family events I couldn’t get my leg workout in today, but I will do it tomorrow!

Here is Tuesday’s workout!

20130315-224936.jpg

I didn’t come up with this workout, I found it on Pinterest! It’s from the Ascent Blog. I really liked it, it was a good quick workout!

Wednesday was biceps and back! My fifth day of lifting! I really really like lifting, something about it makes me feel so powerful 🙂

20130315-225152.jpg

(I really how you can read that :)) I made a little chart on my whiteboard! One column for the exercise, on for the set, one for the reps and another for the weight!

Yesterday’s workout I did come up with! I wasn’t sweating in the beginning but after the second round I was definitely getting a good workout 🙂 here’s what it was:

~ 4 Rounds of:

•20 jumping jacks
•10 push-ups
•15 side lunge into a knee lift twist
•1 minute plank
•1 minute wall sit
•10 SEC REST
•10 pull-ups
•20 V-ups
•10 burpees
•20 SEC REST

I think it took me about a half hour maybe? I wasn’t really keeping track 🙂

Well, those are my workouts for the week! I will do my leg workout tomorrow and share that because I’m sure it’s going to be a good one!

Goodnight everyone! 🙂

Feelin’ Good!

Hello everyone 🙂

Today I am just feeling really good! I got back late from softball and decided to still lift and I am so glad that I did! 🙂 Lifting just make me feel so good! Plus today was an arm and shoulder day and I am pretty proud of my arms 🙂

And I have some new lifting gloves! My arms aren’t exactly where I want them to be but I sure am happy about them as of now 🙂

The workout I did today was the same as last Monday, I just increased the weight a little bit. Tomorrow I will be doing a circuit type workout maybe…? I haven’t really decided yet 🙂 But I will definitely post it!

 

Have a great night! 🙂

A Workout To Do With a Friend

Hello 🙂

Yesterday, one of my friends came over and we did a quick workout together! It was a lot of fun! I usually workout by myself so it’s nice to have a partner every once and a while! 🙂

Here’s the workout we did!

20130308-220314.jpg

Also, today was leg day!! It was so hard but it was so great! My legs feel like jello right now and I’m sure they are going to be very sore tomorrow! 🙂 Here’s what I did for leg day today!

20130308-220623.jpg

Sooo, yeah, that was my leg day! 🙂

Have a great night everyone 🙂

Second Lifting Session

Hello all 🙂

Today was my second lifting day and I felt so good! I actually love lifting! I have no idea why I wasn’t doing it before. I think it’s because I didn’t really know how to start or how to properly do it. But now I do and I’m so happy! This may sound strange but just after these two lifting workouts that I’ve done, I feel like I can feel my body getting stronger and it’s so cool! I love it 🙂 Anyway, here’s what today’s lift looked like:

I screen-shotted from Fitocracy again and there are repeats on there; it’s not because I did them twice, it’s just because I couldn’t fit it all on the screen 🙂

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to get up early and run and then workout with my friend in the afternoon! I’ll post the workout! 🙂

Have a wonderful night 🙂
