Exciting Day 7

Day 7... a wrap up to week 1 of this challenge. (Week 1 summary will come later)

I was so excited this morning!  I realized that the week ended today and I could still do my 4th and final workout! I nearly danced my way down to the gym when it came time for working out. Today was Workout D, legs! I upped the dumbbells for the deadlift to 55lbs.  I know my legs can do more, but I'm not sure about my arms!  Surely, they'll catch up, right?  Lunges, wasn't sure where to start, weight wise for this one, so I just picked a weight and went for it.  The last 2 reps of each set were a bit difficult to get out, but I got them.  Not sure, but I think I'll up the weight next time.  Finished off the workout with some planks.  While I held them for 2 minutes each, I got to thinking the last set, "Is my ass too high?"  I'm going to aim to lower my ass next time and see how that hurts, I mean, works my abs out.

Workout D Stats:
Deadlift: 5x5 @ 55lbs
Lunges: 8x3 @ 30lbs
Planks: Max x3 - 120 seconds each

Eating today was a little on the light side.  I'm completely OK with that considering the bit heavier weekend. I didn't feel hungry so it's all good.

Dinner wasn't the planned steak & broccoli. :(  My son broke out in a rash over the weekend and it spread today.  So as soon as I got home we got to visit urgent care.  Thankfully (?) it's just a contact dermitits.  He's on some hefty drugs to help it heal.

Noms Nommed:
Breakfast - Eggs, Bacon & 2 strawberries
Lunch - Salad with left over chicken "nuggety" goodness, 2 strawberries
PM Snack - Apple
Snack later - 3 Dark Chocolate Almonds
Dinner - BLT Salad from Wendy's without dressing
