Monday Goal Check-In

Good evening Beautiful,

This is going to be short and sweet!

I said I was going to blog everyday this week to make sure I stay on track with this week's fitness goals, so here is check-in number 1.

Today I worked from home which made getting in a morning workout a little bit easier since I didn't have to take the 20-40 minutes (depending on the day) to get to work. I woke up, downed some coffee and made my way down the elevator to the condo gym. I did a quick upper body workout:

Pec Dec, 60lbs, 3 sets, 10 reps
Lat Pulldown, 50lbs, 3 sets, 10 reps
Push-ups on toes, bodyweight, 3 sets, 10 reps
One arm dumbbell row, 25lbs, 3 sets, 10 reps
Dumbbell bicep curl, 15lbs, 3 sets, 10 reps
Cable high one arm row, 30 lbs, 3 sets, 10 reps
Cable bicep curl, 60lbs, 3 sets, 10-10-8 reps
Tricep pressdown, 40lbs, 3 sets, 15-15-12 reps
Dumbbell lateral raise, 5lbs, 3 sets, 20-17-15 reps

Then I did my #plankaday challenge and only held it for 1:09 today, my record so far is 2:08... My arms were quite tired after my workout and holding the plank was hard.

Then I ran for 10 minutes on the treadmill.

I took one of my clients out for lunch today. We went to E11even inside the Real Sports building by the ACC. My client had been many times he told me, and this was a first for me. I was really excited, I love trying new restaurants in Toronto. E11even is a touch expensive for what you get, but the food was VERY delicious. We both ordered the Seared Tuna Salad and a drink. The salad had mixed greens, red onions, cucumber, mango and topped with ginger, it came with three different dressing on the side and a "serving" of seared tuna. The tuna was the best part, and the smallest part. Seared around the outside and basically raw on the inside, dipped in Soy sauce (not paleo, I know...) and it was like butter in my mouth, it just melted, and I melted the first time I tasted it.

It was actually very fun getting to know one of my clients on a more personal level, rather than exchanging emails and phone calls all of the time. I could do it more often if I got paid for it ;). Just kidding, but it was a really fun experience. I got a tour of his office/roof top terrace, and learned a lot about him (He lived in Amsterdam when he was 20 to do professional cycling! Cool huh?).

Then I played volleyball tonight. I have to admit, I wasn't REALLY excited about it tonight because I was pooped from my hard day of schmoozing the big wig at CI Investments (ha.) but I got up the motivation to hit the beach. It was so hot! I was sweating just warming up! Unfortunately we didn't win any of our games but came really close every single time. We played together as a team, and played well. I love going out and playing volleyball just for fun. I don't go out with the expectation that we're going to dominate every game, but that's also not why I signed up. There are some people on my team that get really stressed and competitive when we lose, and it's kind of annoying. I just want to relax and have fun and make some friends in some friendly competition. I don't care whether I win or lose, it's just fun!

That's my rant for the day.
