My workout started off with 10 minutes on the stair stepper. I set it to 100 steps/minute and my heart rate was through the roof. *success*
Then, I moved onto doing supersets. I did roughly 3 sets of each of these guys…
-Assisted Pull Ups
-Lateral Pull Downs
-Squats with dumbbells
-Lunges with dumbbells
The first thing I did when I got home was whip up a protein smoothie. Gotta rebuild my muscles. I used my brothers GNC Vanilla Soy Protein and I also had leftover pomegranate seeds, so why not throw them in my smoothie, right?
Taking pictures was a hoot…thanks to a little someone named Sasha who was extremely curious and wanted a taste.
“Whatcha doin’ Lee?”
“Oooooh, what are those?”
“Millet Puffs! Ahhh I can’t get my head out of the bag!”
“Sniff Sniff..what’s this?”
“More Millet Puffs…Can I have some?!”
“nom nom nom”
“mm, I like millet puffs”
She was beyond adorable. She stuck her head in the millet puff bag and then couldn’t get it off. Just image a puppy walking around with a bag of cereal on her head. BAHAHA. Then, the millet puffs were sticking to her wet nose and it was the funniest thing EVER. I knew my dog was a health nut :)
