Since I’m pretty sure you all know exactly what a baked sweet potato looks like, I won’t bother posting a picture. But it was quite good. Really.
Just know that my diet this week has probably been less than great–no, you silly people, I didn’t take a nosedive off the wagon. I’m just saying that I’ve been living off of sweet potatoes, canned pumpkin, microwaved blueberries, and Paleonola. I might need to revisit some protein at some point…just don’t rush me, dammit!
Nuked B-berries, almond milk, and Paleonola. I thought it would taste like blueberry pie. It didn’t. Not good. Don’t try this.
OK enough of that. I wanted to share last night’s workout because it was awesome…like if I had any food in my stomach I might have vomited all over the nice hotel gym awesome…well, that might be a little extreme, but it was schweaty and I felt great once I stopped seeing bright spots.
I did individual sets of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 8 rounds (4 minutes)…
After one set (8 rounds), rest about 3 or 4 minutes to bring your heart rate down…
Repeat x 4, trying to sprint faster each set…I maxed at about 5:45/mile pace.
The hotel has very little besides cardio equipment, but they do have a full set of dumbbells. After my vomitrocious bout on the treadmill, I worked some upper body stuff:
Dumbbell Snatches (alternating)
Superset: Push-ups/Dumbbell Rows
Superset: Dumbbell Hang Cleans/Deadlifts
There’s no real rhyme or reason to any of that but sometimes good workouts are the result of some playing around at the gym. I don’t workout with dumbbells much…ever…so, it was fun to just experiment a little bit 🙂
