Good Morning! Happy Tuesday to all of you!
Today is a pretty big day around here. Well, I guess I should say that’s it’s a pretty big day in the life of “worry about everything” Kelly. Today, I will be flying solo at work. No office managers, no bosses, no supervision. It’s all up to me and my co-worker, Karrie. As of today, we officially run the office on our own.
Seriously, though, I think everything will be okay. We have been training for over a month together and the main office is only one phone call away, so all things will be good…at least I keep telling myself that. Wish me luck!
With my new work schedule, I usually have to find time to fit my workouts in during the evening since I leave for work around 5:30, but I have a late start today and Lee is working day shift (which never happens) so I decided to get up with him and get my day started early. I did one of my favorite upper-body workouts. I felt like it was an ‘arm’ kind of day.
- 8 minute warm-up on the treadmill
- 3 sets lat pull-downs
- 3 sets dumbbell front raises
- 3 sets bicep curls
- 3 sets triceps push-downs with rope
- 3 sets dumbbell lateral raises
- 10 minute cool-down on the treadmill
This workout is quick and targets every upper-body muscle. I was in and out of our gym in about 35-40 minutes.
After my workout, I did my duties as ‘dog mom’. Jet and Rosie ran around in the yard for a little (where the heck do they get their energy?) and then came in to go through their usual routine of eating breakfast, devouring water and making a mess with it, and then collapsing back to sleep.
Must be nice.
I had intentions of making myself some eggs this morning, but then I looked around my clean kitchen and decided I didn’t want to dirty a pan. Oh, the life of a lazy crazy person…
…and instead opted for a quick bowl of multi-grain Cheerios with a side of water (I’m really trying to drink more!!!).
Alright, friends! It’s time for me to hit the showers and then head out for my first day of playing “I’m the one in charge”!!! Hmmm…maybe I like the sound of that!
Some things to think about…
What is your favorite upper-body move?
Do you have a high-stress job?
