Day Five: Out to Eat! Late Night Work Out….

Sorry for the late post tonight: 11:13 p.m. on a Friday night…. and no, I am not drunk blogging.

I arrived home around 9:00 p.m., made breakfast/lunch for tomorrow, and PUSHED PLAY!. It was Legs and Back tonight, with a side of Ab Ripper X. I did the best that I could and feel good about it. It wasn’t my favorite, but wasn’t Plyometrics either…

I was burning calories for three hours longer than normal. I really felt it in the work out and started to get tired toward the end. Stay in school, don’t do drugs, and don’t break your routine….
