What I Ate Wednesday & a Booty Challenge!

What I Ate:
Protein oats(1 scoop protein, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 cup oats) & coffee w/cream
Post workout: 1 scoop Anabolic Halo + 2 slices pumpkin spice bread with Laughing Cow cream cheese(yummmmmmmm!)
Roasted red potatoes, scrambled eggs (2 whole, 2 white) with mozzarella cheese, 1 turkey sausage patty
-Another cup of coffee w/ cream-
3 oz chicken breast, apple
4 oz lean turkey burger w/ketchup, 1 cup rice
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 tbsp peanut butter

Today was leg day, my favorite day of the week! :) I had an off day last week with my low back being still sore from deadlifts, but this week I was back on my game and feeling strong! Worked up to a heavy set with 175 on squats, which is the heaviest I've gone in quite a while.

Then after squats and deadlifts I decided to do a booty challenge I got from Tara at Sweat Like A Pig. The challenge is to do as many hip thrusts as possible in 90 seconds with 135lbs. I am always up for a challenge and thought this one would be a fun one to try!  I was able to get 30 reps, and my glutes were on FIRE!

Here was what the rest of my workout looked like today:

1)Seated calf raises: 6x10 (trying to get these things to grow by doing them 1st in my workout)
2)Back squats: 135x6/155x5/165x5/175x3
3)Front squats: 115x6/95x10
4)High step ups: 20x3x8
5)Barbell hip thrusts: one warmup set, then 135x30
6)Back extensions: rest pause set x40
7)Cable abductions: 2x12
8)Reverse crunches: x15/12/10/10


  1. Mmmm! Coffee and cream! A perfect afternoon treat :)

  2. I love that you actually tried the hip thrusts! I don't think anyone can comment on how easy/difficult it is until they try it. My training partner is crazy strong so I loved the look on her face when I told her she had 60 seconds to go!!

    1. I'm always up for a challenge! It was fun!
