Holiday World and Other Stuff

Over the weekend Matt and I went to Holiday World in Indiana with my sister and her boyfriend. I love amusement parks! We had a lot of fun riding all the rollercoasters-I could ride them all day! But this morning I couldn't believe how sore my back is, I guess from all the jerking around on those coasters. They were pretty rough.

I didn't really have a cheat meal this week. We brought sandwiches, yogurt and fruit in a cooler for lunch at Holiday World. BUT I did have a lot of Sun Chips(those things are addicting-you just can't stop eating them!), AND a protein bar, which I never have because they're usually full of crap and not that great for you. But it was a good replacement for a really BAD cheat meal. I also had a couple of diet pepsis because they give them out free at the park! I'm thinking this week's "semi" cheat meal will be tacos-yummy!

Well, today was supposed to be a workout day, but I'm just going to let my body rest. My back really hurts today. I'm going to have a light week this week at the gym anyway. I've been going heavy for the past few months, so I think it's time to sort of have a "deloading" week. Just gonna use lighter weights, 10-12 reps, instead of my usual 4-8 reps with the heaviest weight possible.

I'm also going to switch it up and do supersets for the next few weeks, just for something different. Supersets are pretty challenging for me since I'm so used to resting 90 sec-2 minutes between sets. Doing 2 exercises back to back really gets my heart rate up!

Well, only 2 more weeks until New York! I'm so excited to just get away for a whole week, and of course, to go to New York City! I can't wait. :)
I've already started packing(I LOVE to pack!!) and thinking about my meals and snacks for the trip up there and when in NYC. And of course, I gotta start planning my workouts! The good thing is, Matt's parents have a weight room at their house, so I can pretty much stick with my regular weight lifting routine.
