G.T.P (Gym, TV, Paninis)

by Jenny on February 24, 2011

After work I hurried home to meet Jeremy and get our roomie night started!  While waiting for her I snacked on some pretzels with Ortia Salsa Chipotle Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip .

Once Jer made it to the apartment we headed out for the gym to start our G.T.P (Gym, TV, Paninis) Night – our own Jersey Shore take off. :)  We got slightly distracted by some window shopping at South Moon Under on the way.  We stopped in so I could try on something that caught my eye…

I think the socks are a must to make the outfit!

Please excuse the sunburnt chest… I’ve never owned a romper before so I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.  What do you think, should I continue with the mixing it up trend today and make the purchase??

After our slight detour it was back on route to our chair massages and workout!!  Today’s workout consisted of an interval run on the treadmill for me, that I originally found at BessBeFit.  (If you haven’t checked out Bess’ blog before, I highly recommend it and her posted workouts!)

30 Interval Run

5 minute warm up at  6.5 mph

  • 30 seconds at 10 mph
  • 60 seconds at 4 mph
  • 60 seconds at 10 mph
  • 90 seconds at 4 mph

I completed the above circuit a total of 6 times and finish with a walking cool down.

Jeremy’s treadmill workout consisted of 30 minutes at an incline of 11% at 4.0 mph.  Good work Roomie!!

After we were both done on the treadmill we moved onto our core workout which consisted of the four core focused circuits included in the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones video.

Circuit #1: Chest and Abs

  • Chest Press with Crunch (with 3lb weight) (x14)
  • Leg Raises with Fly (with 3lb weight) (x10)
  • Bicycle Crunches (x28)
  • Squirms (x28)
  • Pushups (x12)

Circuit #2: Core

  • Double Crunch (x13)
  • Twisting Plank (x15)
  • Toe Taps (x10 per side)
  • Windshield Wipers (x8)

Circuit #3: Upper Body & Core

  • Plank Rows (with 3lb weight) (x16)
  • Supermans (x14)
  • Scissor Kicks (x25)
  • Pelvic Thrusts (x15 each leg)

Circuit #4: Lower Body & Core

  • Side Plank Dips (x17)
  • Forward Leg Raises (x17)
  • Inner Thigh Raises (x15)
  • Repeat Above for both side of the body
  • Donkey Kicks (x12 per side)
  • Round Kicks (x8 per side)

We repeated each circuit twice.

After the short walk from the gym back to my place we were very ready to get dinner started.  We both made our own paninis comprised of our chosen ingredients, while I steamed green beans and seasoned them with TS Seasoned Salt for a side.

My panini included: chicken in hot sauce, 2% cheddar cheese and blue cheese crumbles with some light ranch on the side for dipping…

Buffalo Chicken Panini

Jer’s panini had the following melted inside:  roasted chicken, salsa ranch, sliced tomato and 2% mexican cheese on whole wheat potato bread…

Someone wants her own panini maker now!

Now its time to watch Grey’s Anatomy, enjoy some dessert (yummy recipe that I’ll post tomorrow) and gossip (only on commercials)!  See ya in the morning :)
