That Was A Great Workout, But….

Posted on: July 13, 2011

….I actually thought I was going to faint when I was done.  You see, if I don’t fuel properly before working out, I will either get sick or almost pass out.  I ate an apple on my way to the gym, but clearly that was not enough.  It’s been A LONG TIME since I have had that happen to me.  Here is what I did: (found over at Julie’s page, but changed just a little bit)

Leg Extension-35 pounds-15 reps*3

Leg Curl-50 pounds-15 reps*3

Rotary Calf-70 pounds-15reps*3

10 Minute Run at 5.5 mph

Stability Ball Hamstring Curls-20 reps*3

Pushups-15 reps*3<——I did them girly style

10 Minute Eliptical-1 Minute Forward-1 Minute Backward

Tricep Dips-15 reps*3

Various Crunches-20*4

I was on that last set of crunches when the whole room started to spin and I thought for sure I was going down.  I made it just in time to a bench and sat there with my head between my knees.  I did manage to have completed almost 50 minutes and burn almost 500 calories.  I’ll take it.

Well, I’m going to take it easy for the rest of the night and since I have been a bad blogger and haven’t taken any pictures, I will leave you with a few pictures of Diesel.

I’m going to stop at two because really, I could just go all night.  I LOVE that boy!!

Question of the night:

Have you ever gotten sick/passed out from working out?

[…] My plan was to do the circuit 4 times, but I had a dentist appointment prior to that so I hadn’t eaten anything and we all know how that goes. […]
