The Countdown Begins..... 80 more days

So I started with 100 days before our family vacation. And my workouts have been great. I have been making sure I work every body part once a week and getting in at least 4 35 minute cardio session in on average per week as well. My heart rate monitor is telling me I am burning baby - tons of calories. On average at least 500 calories in one single workout. This is working for me. But once I get back to the cleanest eating ever, I'll scale down on the time I spend working out by probably 15-20 minutes. Right now I am working out 80-90minutes per workouts, at least 4 days a week, and sometimes I get in that long cardio session for 60 minutes once a week. Burning 3000 plus calories a week is a lot, but I know I am over compensating for my less than perfect diet. But that will change.... closing on our home very very soon!!!

So yesterday at the gym was back and bicep day. I started off my workout with 20 minutes on the treadmill. Walking at 4.0mph for 2 minutes and than running at a speed of 6.0mph for 6 minutes. Than I moved on to back - 3 exercises, 4 sets of 15 reps. Biceps was 3 exercises - 2 sets of each for 15 reps. Than back on the treadmill for 25 minutes and alternated between running and fast walking.

Today -- Day 20 of 100 days.... I did legs, abs and cardio. Very powerful workout. I started with a 10 minutes warm-up on the treadmill and than moved to my strength training routine. I did standing squats - 3 sets of 20, 2 sets of 25 non-weight standing squats, 3 sets of 20 of leg extensions and finished leg curls with one set of one-legged curls. Moving on to seated curls and repeat exactly what I id for leg extensions. Moved on to stiff-leg dead lifts, 3 sets of 18, 2 sets of 20 steps up with DB, walking lunges 2 sets of 20 and can not forget those calves. 4 sets of 20 DB standing calf raises.

I was feeling good and even after all that leg work, I got back on the treadmill for 25 minutes. I am a sucker for pain!:)
