NROLW and a blueberry day.

Nice workout time this morning, even though I was up too early because I couldn’t sleep!  Mostly cardio bunnies at the gym today and I was all by myself in the free weight area for almost all of my workout (yay!).  Then someone came in and got on the Smith machine, but I don’t care about that.  Mornings all the way for weights!

  • Dumbbell cuban snatch: 3 x 6 15 pounds
  • Dumbbell single-leg deadlift: 3 x 6 at 20
  • Barbell bent-over row: 1 x 6 at 45, 1 x 6 at 55, 1 x 6 at 65
  • Dumbbell single-arm overhead squat 3 x 6 (using 8# and 15#)
  • Dumbbell incline bench press: 3 x 6 at 25#
  • Planks: 90 second holds 3 times
  • Reverse woodchop: 3 x 6 at 50 pounds
  • Bodyweight matrix:   3 times

My variant of this is to do alternating lunges for the 3rd item and not jump with them, then to do the jump squats.  I could only do 12 jump squats on each repetition, though!  :O   It took me about 3 minutes to get through each set.  Gee…. I wonder what I will feel like tomorrow.  Video of someone doing the matrix at the end of this post – This lady rocks!

Came home hungry!  Protein pancakes with blueberries.


Here are my goals for this week:

  1. Stay within calories.
  2. No cereal snacking!!!  I mean it!!
  3. 3 weight workouts (1 done)
  4. 2 running days
  5. 3 biking days
  6. Take time to congratulate myself at the end of each day for the positive things I accomplish.

Lunch was like a little tasting plate:  Tuna mixed with 40 Spice Hummus, FSTG Sweet Potato chips (amazing!), more blueberries, baby carrots.  This was fun and interactive.


I have managed to consume a whole pint of blueberries by myself since yesterday!  John said I was going to need to get another job to support my fruit addiction 😛

Afternoon latte.  I think our machine is on its last legs.


I had even more hummus for dinner.  I cooked up some ground turkey and rolled it up in a wrap with the 40 spice hummus and spring mix. Yum!


I normally don’t have a bread-type carb at dinner, so this was something different.

Body weight matrix video – warning, lame music ahead!

And for kicks, here is someone who isn’t doing so well with the matrix – I will just put the link up because I don’t want to embarass him LOL (although he did post this on youtube).  And truth be told, I am a lot more like him than the woman above!

    Haha, I love that guy!! I’ve seen the first video before. When I first started doing the matrix, I would bring my “ass to the grass” so to speak. I got so pissed when I saw her legs were only parallel and I was working harder than I had too!!

    Anyways, great workout AND goals Lori!! Let us know how the cereal munching goes. You will be my hero if you do it 😉

    I’m definitely going to try the body matrix, though I found a little bit of a different version: jump squats, forward lunges, jump squats, side lunges, jump squats, reverse lunge, standard squats. Either way you go (either body matrix) means I’m gonna be DEAD!! LOL

    I’ve been eating a ton of blueberries this summer, too! They are so yummy. I also can’t seem to get enough of all the other summer fruit, especially strawberries and nectarines!

    no cereal snacking has been a hard one for me to break.

    waaaay tougher than that matrix and that sh*t is hard 🙂

    I really like the lunches like the little snacking plate. Make me happy. I have pretty much stopped eating cereal the past month or so. I think the chickens might be getting some snack food pretty soon!
