Workout and Word of the Day #50

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

It has been a busy day and I have been a busy girl.  I started my new internship and a new job and both are keeping me busy, but it is never an excuse to skip my workouts.  In fact, I look forward to my workouts more than ever these days.

Today’s Workout is: Leg Day + Core

  1. Nonstop Banded Dumbbell Hip Thrust 3 x 20
  2. Dumbbell Deficit Bulgarian Split Squat 3 x 12
  3. Dumbbell Deadlifts 3 x 10
  4. Leg Press 3 x 50

Medicine Ball Core Workout: 3 times!

  • 1 x 10 In-n-outs
  • 2 x 10 Toe Touches
  • 3 x 10 Leg Lifts
  • 4 x 20 Hollow Holds

I am thrilled about the fact that I felt stronger throughout this core workout.  After my first circuit I wanted to “call it a day” but I reminded myself that summer is near and my core needs the most work so I completed all 3 circuits like I set out to do in the first place and it was a great feeling!

Today’s Word of the Day is:

cerebral– adjective

  1. Of or relating to the brain or the intellect.
  2. Of, relating to, affecting, or being the cerebrum.
  3. Appealing to intellectual appreciation.
  4. Primarily intellectual in nature.

I started intermittent fasting today and I think it is the right thing for me for now.  My eating window is from 12-8 so I need to make sure that I start my fast promptly at 8 pm.  Sometimes it is easy to forget especially since I am a nerd and get prone to snacking at night.  I better get back to studying!  I will see  you tomorrow!

  1. good word – I once heard someone to someone “Don’t so cerebral” – meaning get out of your head too much
    and best wishes on the fasting – my spouse does it all (and got the idea from Marks Daily Apple ) and I do it sometimes

    1. Thank you! I like that expression. I did IF and keto in the fall and early winter and got great results, but was not lifting heavily back then. I am excited to start the intermittent fasting again 🙂
