I got home from work last night at almost 1 AM. I have been walking around like a zombie but today was LEG DAY!
I caught a glimpse of the exercises on our Facebook page but I didn't pay attention to the reps.
Second to the last exercise was 2 sets of 45 degree leg press, 100 reps! That is after squats, leg curls, extensions, front squats and isolation lunges. The workout finished with 100 backward stepping lunges, 2 sets. WHAT THE WHAT?!?!?
I really wanted to quit and had every excuse to since I barely slept all week (got home and my son was in my bed. didn't move him). I went to the gym. I did every rep even when I wanted to stop during that triple drop set of leg curls. :)

This whole outfit is from Athlete. I love these pants.
100 reps of leg press.
I did every reps. I definitely had to stop in between to catch my breath but I kept going. I did every reps of this workout. I was so proud.
Then came dinner. I blew it. I had french fries. I know better. I know I should NOT celebrate a huge accomplishment with food. I had a few moments of weakness. I was just happy to get my work stuff complete and so happy to have pushed myself through that very difficult workout. I know what my coaches will say....30 minutes of fasted cardio tomorrow. I will do it. I deserve the punishment. HA!
Until next time, no more fries for this one!
My daughter is playing in the City Championship Saturday at 11 am at St. Pius! I am so happy for her. This is the second year in a row her team plays for the championship. We are ALL going to miss the game! My brother's wedding is Saturday at 3 pm in Kingsville. :/
Send her some good vibes and prayers! I will be there for you in spirit Biggs. Love you so much!
