Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I had a very restful weekend mixed with good people and good food. I tried out an amazing Indian restaurant on Saturday night and had lamb, which is NOT a usual food for me, and loved it!! I had to provide a picture below! :)
I also went to a fun pumpkin patch yesterday, which made it finally feel like Fall, minus the hot weather we are experiencing here. Overall, it was a great weekend!
My hip and knee have been healing nicely ever since I have been taking it easy activity-wise. My hip pain is 90% gone, but seems to have moved on to my knee. Thankfully, this pain is subsiding as well. My cousin gave me some great icing and stretching tips, which have been working out great! I have also been doing the elliptical for about 30 minutes a day, which helps me get my cardio in without being too strenuous on my hips and knees. Since my pain has been getting better, I am hoping to fit in a short run later on this week, depending on how things go! Here is my tentative workout plan for the week!
**I also decided to provide the machines/exercises I typically do for my toning work instead of just the body parts I work. I hope this helps! I plan to get more and more detailed as I go along with my workouts and schedules, and once I have more time after I take my RD exam!
I did 35 minutes on the elliptical this morning, followed by chest and back work.
Elliptical 40 minutes, biceps, push-ups
Elliptical 30 minutes, triceps, shoulders
If my hip and knee are feeling better, today is the day I am going to TRY a 1 mile run, along with 20-30 minutes on the elliptical, chest, biceps
30 minutes elliptical, back, triceps
1-1.5 mile run, 20-30 minutes elliptical, shoulders, biceps
2 mile run, 10 minutes elliptical, chest, triceps
Chest: chest press machine
Back: Lat pull down, mid row machine
Biceps: seated bicep curl machine, seated bicep curls with dumbbells
Triceps: tricep extension machine, tricep dips on seat
Shoulders: Shoulder press machine, shoulder press with dumbbells, and I also LOVE the TIU shoulder routine! Found here :)
And that is the plan for a week! I am feeling optimistic and hoping that I can actually run my intended 2 miles by the end of this week. I hope you all make this week a great one!
