NROLW and fruit day!

I wasn’t sure if I was going to take a whole week off of lifting, but since this is my last week at the Y, decided to get right back to it!

Had a preworkout snack of Ezekiel toast with cashew butter and some of my strawberry jam.  Sooooo good!


This was stage 5 of NROLW:

  • Barbell squat/push press: 3 x 8 –  45 pounds
  • 1-point dumbbell rows: 3 x 8 –  25 pounds
  • Step-ups: 3 x 8 – 30 pounds
  • Pushups: 3 x 8
  • Stationary lunges: 3 x 8 – 25# plate
  • Plank: 3 x 2 minute holds (hard!!!!)
  • Cable woodchop: 1 x 8 – 50#, 1 x 8 – 55#, 1 x 8  – 60#

Holding the plank for 2 minutes was killer.  It was made doubly hard because I was so sweaty from jogging a mile prior to starting and the humidity that I was sliding on the mat.  I had to touch my knees down a couple times on the last set.  I love how the plank looks so innocuous, but is a killer total body workout.

Came back and made protein pancakes with the banana maple topping.  I think we are finally getting through all those bananas.  I did cut a bunch in half and froze them, though.


Lunch was a tuna and hummus sandwich with another of those incredible raspberry pluots.  I need to get some more of those!


I got this in the mail – eek!


Yay…. not……  Starts on Monday.  Maybe I won’t get picked to sit.

It’s really hot and humid today.  I  didn’t feel like cooking anything for dinner, so I had some yogurt, berries and cereal.


Go to quick and easy meal.  I think I have had this for, what – 3 days in a row now for a meal?  It’s also light, so I don’t feel all bogged down with food.  Heat and humidity really keep me from being hungry, which I guess is a good thing!

I also snacked on some blueberries.  I may have to go again this weekend to pick, as they are winding down for the season.  Then I will have to cry!

It was quite the fruit-filled day!  (Oh yes, and a tablespoon of chocolate chips!)

Question:  Jury duty anyone?  Or did you get excused?

    Ha, I had tuna and hummus for supper, then came home and had PB&J on a wasa!! Great minds obviously think alike 😉

    I’m a huge nerd and would love doing jury duty. I spend a lot of time in court anyway reporting on all the newsworthy proceedings. It’s my favourite thing to cover! The best stories sometimes unravel in a courtroom…

    I have never been picked but my mom has. She got off because being a single mom to two kids, it would have caused her even more financial hardship!

    Never been summoned. Once, I guess, but I’d moved out of that county. Maybe that’s what you can do…MOVE this weekend! lol

    You’re so right about the plank. It’s hard especially when sweaty, but it looks so darn easy.
