Last night was the perfect evening for a ballgame. The Cardinals played the Cubs which always makes for an exciting game, but the fact that the temperature dropped to a cool 85 degrees was absolutely perfect. While 85 may not seem cool to some, we’ve had our share of 100+ days here, so while the sun was down, 85 felt awesome!
Jonny and I ate an early dinner at home and brought peanuts to the game to snack on. Stopping by a local fro-yo joint has become a tradition for us after games, but last night that was not necessary. When we walked out of Busch, there were people passing out mini Jimmy John’s sandwiches!
Now if you don’t think Jonny got excited about that – you don’t know him at all. Jonny could hardly believe this good fortune, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was pretty stoked about the minis, too.
Ham and cheese on white bread wasn’t my preference (I’m more of a Beach Club on wheat sans mayo type of gal), but beggars can’t be choosers and the mini was quite the tasty post-game snack!
Today for a workout, I’m sticking with cardio only. My body is pretty sore as I did a random full body workout (listed below) on Thursday and back and biceps with my brother yesterday. The workout I’ll share is pretty random as I didn’t have a plan in place, but it got the job done.
- Warm up: 30 minutes on the elliptical
- Bulgarian Split Squats
- Back Rows with a barbell
- Chest Press with a barbell
- Shoulder Press
- Alternating Bicep Curls
- Tricep Extension
- Bench Dips
- Back Hyperextensions
- Decline Crunches with a medicine ball
- Finale: 1-mile treadmill run
I used heavy weights and did 12 – 15 reps (however many I could manage with proper form) and 3 sets of each exercise.
