Matt was up at 6:30 this morning for work, and so was my rumbling belly.
Since it was a gloomy start to the day, I made myself a bowl of egg white oat bran with 1/2 a banana whisked in, dash of pumpkin pie spice, blueberries, and raw almond butter.
I also made an ACV cocktail which contained Water, 1 tbsp. ACV, 1 packet of Stevia, fresh lemon juice, and a dash of cinnamon.
Shaken in the bottle to mix everything up.
Apple Cider Vinegar and peppermint tea have really been helping with my digestive issues lately. However, I recently realized something strange that may or may not be influencing the problem.
Although my stomach is no stranger to discomfort, things really started to act up once I began wearing my heart rate monitor during my workouts. No, I do not wear it too tight, nor is my sports bra digging into my ribs and causing pain.
I’m wondering if the HRM’s tracking pads send off some sort electric current that can irritate a gallbladder, ulcer, or whatever else is wrong with me.
Am I over thinking this? Am I nuts? I might be.
So I had originally planned on bustin’ out an arm workout today, but I somehow ended up doing treadmill sprints with a friend at the gym.
It was sort of contagious. He was doing them, it got me excited, so I had to join in.
If everyone was jumping off a bridge would you?
Well that was fun. Now onto my originally scheduled arm workout
- Upright Row: 3 sets of 15
- Overhead Press: 3 sets of 15
- Alternating Front and Lateral Raise: 3 sets of 10 (each)
- Monkey Curls: 3 sets of 12 (works shoulders and triceps too)
- Alternating Bicep Curls: 3 sets of 12
- Cross Body Hammer Curls: 3 sets of 12
- Overhead Extension: 3 sets of 12
- Triceps Kickback 3 sets of 12
- Triceps Push Ups: 2 sets of 15
Stretch and refuel those muscles!
