I go to the gym to decompress, de-stress... I'm totally addicted to the endorphins, and I feel like a normal person when I've had a good sweat session.
Today, I hit the weights. I wanted to
give my tootsies a little rest, they were starting to scream at me for
all the running I've been doing lately.
Today's workout: (Weight = right and left barbells added together)
Bench Press with Barbells 40 lbs 3x10
Tricep Extensions (scull crushers) 24 lbs 3x10
Bicep Curls 40 lbs 3x10
Incline Dumbbell Fly 24 lbs 3x10
Shoulder Press 30 lbs 4x6
(Get an even workout by hitting biceps, triceps, shoulders, back and chest)
Step-ups on weight bench 3x6
Leg Curls 50 lbs 3x10
Machine Squat 210 lbs 3x10
(Not gonna lie, I do mostly workouts that target my glutes.)
20 minutes on the stationary bike to flush the legs out
Also, the joy of every-other-Thursday... Grocery list day!
I love making lists and spreadsheets. I have endless to-do lists (they never get done, but I love making them) and gigabytes of excel spreadsheets.
Here's an awkward funny story (boys, skip ahead) I used
to be embarrassed to write things like tampons and pads on my grocery
list, so I spelled them backwards. Sdap, Snopmat...

I was browsing Hy-Vee's website to check the sale items, and I found out that they have this AWESOME new feature that I'm borderline obsessed with. You can look through their ad online, click on the page, and add each item to your grocery list. It tells you how much it costs, when the sale ends... Pretty freaking awesome. I planned my whole week around the meat that's on sale and I took note of the produce that's on sale, so I don't have to scour the isles for the best deal.
This solidified my choice to shop at Hy-Vee. Plus, I'm always surprised, but I always seem to get out of there under budget.
