Workout and Word of the Day #33

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I could tell it was Thursday when I woke up this morning by my lack of enthusiasm, but I still got going and I was looking forward to today’s workout!  For the past 4 weeks, Thursdays have been my pull day which is the most challenging for me.  I am switching it up and have turned it into a shoulders and triceps day.

Today’s Workout: Shoulders & Triceps

  1. Seated Dumbbell Press 3 x 20
  2. Seated Arnold Press 3 x 20
  3. DB Front Raise 3 x 20
  4. DB Lateral Raise 3 x 20
  5. Tricep Kickbacks 3 x 15
  6. Seated French Press 15/ 14/ 10
  7. Single-Arm Tricep Extension 3 x 8
  8. Tricep Bench Dips 3 x 25
  9. Single Leg Drop 3 x 20
  10. Bicycle Twists 3 x 20

*30 seconds of active cardio between every set.  I did jumping jacks, jump squats and walked around *

I warmed up with 20 minutes on the elliptical and I also did 20 more minutes on the elliptical after the workout.  I am trying to include more cardio so that I can burn more fat.  I really do miss dancing and will have to find some classes soon.  I have done some home workouts, but it just is not the same!

Today’s Word of the Day is:

heiligenschein– noun (German)

  1. A ring of light around the shadow cast by a person’s head, especially on a dewy, sunlit lawn, caused by reflection and diffraction of light ray’s; halo.

I love how poetic the definition to this word is.  I feel like I can imagine seeing my favorite person on a grassy knoll standing in the sunlight.  I love words like this.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  The accountability is doing wonders for me!  See you next time!!!

❤ Alana
