Last week's workouts

I haven't felt very motivated to exercise since I gave blood, I'm still not sure if it is just a slow recovery or something else but my legs were tired up until this Monday.  I didn't workout on Monday or Tuesday but made myself go to the gym on Wednesday (11/21):
Thrusters (55 lbs)
Hip extensions (shoulders on the bench, bringing my hips up)
Air squats
Nine calories on rower
Kettlebell swings (26 lbs)
Floor wipers (55 lbs)
Sumo deadlift high pulls (55 lbs)
1st round: 11 reps each
2nd round: 22 reps each
My time: 17:09
It was tough, I felt out of shape but I finished.

Thursday was Thanksgiving!  I didn't think I would do any kind of exercising but my cousin was joking around and asking me about Tim Ferriss' 4 Hour body book and wondering if she should do some squats before or after dessert.  I told her we needed to do 40 squats before eating dessert in order to activate our GLUT-4 receptors and get the metabolism revved up.  So I went to the bathroom and did 40 squats! And she only did 15 because she was laughing too hard.  I'm not sure if it helped but I didn't feel bloated later on and I didn't gain any weight over Thanksgiving.  I also showed her how to do a manmaker and did a couple of those also.

The rest of the weekend was "restful". I did a little bit with 10 lb dumbbells but it was only 5 minutes of exercises (curl, tricep extension, press, lunges).
