100 Arm/Ab Workout

17 Sep

Yesterday, Ed and I ran 4-5 miles each at different times in the afternoon after church.  We attended early service at church together and I served in the nursery during late service.  It was a phenomenal day to go with our weekend to say the least.  I  had the most special connection with one of the little boys that I won’t forget for a very long time.

After church, I was able to run a 4.64 mile run at a 9:41 min/mi before heading back to get ready for Ed’s first volleyball game on his new team in Maryland.

Ed loves volleyball and even found a team to play on while on our cruise for our honeymoon.  He has struggled to find a team in need of players since we moved here.  Luckily, this team called a couple weeks back and they were able to put him on the roster.  While the team is still very new, I think he is just enjoying playing again.  It was fun to watch him back in his element.

This weekend was full of activity, exercise, good food and football!  It’s weekends like these that either make me wonder why I decided to go back to school or how much I want to finish.  I can’t wait to have more stress weekends like this in the future!

For today’s workout, I really wanted to target my arm and abs at the gym.  I decided to do my own variation of a 100 Workout to target a few different areas to offset all the cardio from the weekend on my legs.  It ended up looking like this.

I used a 10 lb. weight for the crunches and triceps and two 5 lb. weights for the shoulder raises.  My arms felt like jelly for the better part of the afternoon.  My last 10 minutes of cardio actually turned out to be 10 minutes of Insanity my coworkers were doing.  I really enjoy doing these DVDs and should get back into doing it on a regular basis.  It’s sweaty and challenging and reminds me of being back exercise classes in Ohio.

My computer is not working so I am using Ed’s at the moment.  Keep checking the blog for more updates and changes as I learn more!  Like this post or follow my blog to show your support 🙂  Remember to Like Me on Facebook too!
