My days seem really long

Five am came too early today.  I got to the gym about five fifteen.  I was tired.  I warmed up doing six minutes of sprint sets.  Yes, six whole minutes.  :)  

Then I did some chest:
 4 sets of 10 chest press-I upped the weight after each set.
3 sets of 15 chest fly's on the pulley's.

Then came gpp:
1 round of:
Tabata BTB squats (you must "rest" in the bottom of the squat)
On trainer's count perform 5 rounds of the following:
20 v-ups
20 T2T side ups R
20 T2T side ups L
20 T2T superman back ext
20 T2T tap down crunches
20 sec ab bridges

I was just telling my husband the other day how I can never get my abs really sore.  Well today's workout should do the trick.  I was hurting but did the whole thing.  I finished of with a little cardio:

1 mile stair stepper
400 meter row sprint
400 meter run sprint
400 meter row sprint
400 meter run sprint

Not a lot but I ran out of time.  Ok...I talked too much at the gym and didn't work hard enough.  I am planning on running up a local mountain with my sister and friend tomorrow bright and early so I feel Ok about it.

Breakfast was a protein shake the size of the USA with the usual stuff thrown in.  I grabbed two of my mini protein zucchini muffins on my way out the door a little later.

Lunch was 4 egg whites with spinach and salsa on a La Tortilla Factory tortilla.  I love those tortillas.  Go here for the nutrition info.  They are posted on the bottom of that page.

This afternoon I whipped up some granola.  I'll post the recipe tomorrow.  It was good though and I had a little bowl for my afternoon snack.  

For dinner I shared this huge salad with mu husband while my kiddos ate chicken and broccoli casserole and sweet potatoes.'s sideways.  Lettuce, spinach, turkey, egg whites, broccoli, tomatoes, and a little feta.  It was yummy and my belly is satisfied.

For the dressing we mixed together a Tbs of garlic hummus, a Tbs of balsamic, and a little water.  Delish.

Wish me luck on the death run tomorrow!
