Today has been absolutely perfect so far. It’s 43° and sunny outside, the kind of day that reminds you warm weather is just around the corner. I started the morning off by browsing the web while enjoying my favourite breakfast (peanut butter and banana on toast with a glass of milk).
At 10:30, I went to Body Pump where I increased my weights for the chest, triceps, biceps and lunge tracks. I probably shouldn’t have increased for the biceps track because I had to skip a few reps; my biceps are just pitifully weak. On the bright side, I made it through one set of push ups without having to drop to my knees (and this was near the end of the class so I was pretty tired). Here are my current Body Pump weights (keep in mind that I’m small and have only recently started increasing the frequency of my Body Pump sessions):
- Squats – 12kg
- Chest – 9kg
- Clean and press – 10kg
- Triceps – 7kg
- Biceps – 5kg
- Lunges – 9kg
- Shoulders - 5kg on the bar and 5 pound hand weights for side raises
There, now I’ve posted it publicly and will feel shamed into adding more weight next time! After Pump, I went out for lunch with my sister to a cafe downtown Oakville called Bite Me Twice. Look how cute it is:
I was here a couple of weekends ago with Josh and loved it – the space gets a lot of sunlight, making it bright and cheerful (and the little tulips in the window add to the overall good atmosphere). This time, I ordered the Chipotle Chicken wrap, made with chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, chipotle mayo, avocados and lots of melted cheddar cheese. It was oh so good!
After lunch, I went for a half hour walk with my mom to enjoy more of the beautiful weather. All in all, a perfect day (although I still have to work this afternoon, which is casting a dark cloud over my good mood).
