Leg Day(s)

For a while now, I’ve been designating Mondays as leg day.  This week though, I decided to switch things up a bit and move legs to Tuesday, in hopes that I might be able to hit legs twice this week.  I also made up another new plan yesterday, and just like Monday’s shoulders and triceps plan, it was a total hit with me. 

My stomach was feeling really crappy when I got out of work yesterday, so to start off, I walked for about ten minutes on the treadmill to try and help myself feel a little better.  Fortunately, it totally worked, and I was good and warmed up for what turned out to be a pretty intense leg workout. 

The first part of each superset is weighted, while the second half is not.  I did each of the following supersets four times through, using a 50-pound barbell for the first three supersets, and a 40-pound barbell for the next three.  By the time I got to the step-ups, it was all I could do to complete them without any weight at all!

Once I was done, I ended with 100 body weight squats… but only because my favorite squatting song happened to come on my iPod right as I was finishing up.  Can’t let it go to waste!

It’s funny how much a song can come to be correlated with certain things for you after a while.  One time, that song came on in a bar, and I had to seriously restrain myself from busting out squats right then and there – haha!

I’m hoping to get in another leg workout on Thursday, but first I need to assess the soreness situation that I have a feeling this new plan might bring on.  I can already feel it setting in, so if I can’t walk by Thursday, then I’ll have to readjust the schedule, but I won’t be mad about it! 

For dinner last night, I had steak, butternut squash, and green beans.  I cut the squash into cubes, sprayed a cookie sheet with a little cooking spray, and roasted it and the green beans for about 30-40 minutes at 400*.  I put the steak in (seasoned with Montreal Steak Seasoning) under the broiler for the last few minutes, and before I knew it I had another healthy, super easy meal!

I love steak, but I can’t really remember the last time I had it, so finding this cut in my freezer was definitely a treat!  I also don’t know why I never thought of roasting butternut squash before recently.  I guess I was used to only ever having it mashed (which was how my mom always made it), but it is so, so good this way too!  I don’t put anything on it, but it’s sweet and delicious all on it’s own!

Day two of the (Mostly) Clean Eating Challenge officially in the books as a success!

What did you do for a workout yesterday?
