I had a lunch date today with Dumb and Dumber, and Mr. Bouncy. We got caught up on a few How I Met Your Mother episodes. Got to love TiVo.
I did three sets of 18 bicep curls, rowing lifts and overhead pulls. Then, I did 75 crunches (broken up, as usual, in three sets of 25). I wanted to do more, but I could feel it a little in my back and decided not to push it. I may have been doing something wrong because, thinking about it now, I shouldn’t feel crunches in my back!
I also did some leg work: three sets of 15 leg lifts while sitting on the couch — remote in one hand for fast-forwarding commercials — and three sets of 20 lunges.
Is it me, or does anyone else love lunges? I mean, not while I am doing them. But, afterward. The muscles in my legs are tight throughout the rest of the day, and it makes me feel healthy and strong.
I’m glad I got the workout in earlier — during T Junior’s first nap. My poor little buddy is sick, so he needed some cuddle time when he woke up, and then we had a major shopping trip to cross some stuff off of a couple of my lists.
I’m looking forward to the Jingle Bell 5K on Sunday, and crossing my fingers I don’t catch what T Junior has!
