Nice and cool this morning – so refreshing! I was so hungry when I woke up today. Had the very last piece of Ezekiel bread with the last of the apricot jam and PB for my snack. Tasty stuff.
Here are some more stealth shots of my new gym.
I’m in in the last couple workouts from Stage 4 of NROLW.
Today was B:
- Deadlifts: 1 x 8 55 pounds, 1 x 8 65 pounds, 1 x 8 75 pounds
- Bulgarian split squats: 3 x 8 35# plate
- Underhand grip lat pulldown: 1 x 8 60#, 2 x 8 at 70#
- Reverse lunge with forward reach: 3 x 8 10# dumbbells (yay!)
- Prone cuban snatch: 3 x 8 10# dumbbells (super yay!)
- Crunches, reverse crunches, lateral raise
- Back extension machine (instead of prone cobra) 3 x 8 at 90#
I decided to do the back extension rather than the cobra because I am tired of that one. 😀 I’m feeling strong and it feels so good!
Texted John (I can’t believe I have actually sent some texts recently!) to meet me and bike onward to breakfast! Speed on the way there, just under 12mph.
Someone there wanted my coffee. I love this guy – one of my favorite Christmas specials 😀
And the brekkie!
Biked home. Speed on the way home hit 13.5 mph. Think it was the bagel and the carb boost? Indeed.
Light on work this morning, which is a good thing because I was meeting someone at noon. Noon is lunchtime for me, normally – so it was an ‘on-the-go’ lunch. Been a while since I have had one of these!
Some cereal snackage when I got back (oooooppppssss…..).
More delicious coffee after trying to get into a work rhythm. If I didn’t actually see blood come out when I do donations, I would assume that my veins are full of coffee.
John grilled steak for dinner – yum! Haven’t had steak in forever. I so love our local smokehouse.
Usually I go and get a bunch of chicken (I’m cheap). John went and came home with a $8 per pound steak! One piece of meat that is really worth paying good money for is steak. Never buy cheap steak. Other cuts, yes – but not steak. So good.
So, I am feeling a little aimless without having a goal since I am not doing the half marathon, although finishing NROLW is a good goal! I’m doing a couple 5Ks, but it’s not quite the same. I saw a duathlon in the paper in October this morning, and I just might go ahead and do that. It’s 2.2 mile run/16 mile bike ride/2.2 mile run. I think that might be a good way to send out the active season. I had an odd desire to to a brick the other day (what was I thinking??), so maybe I should do it.
Or really, what I should do is buckle down and take off the last 10 pounds instead of dinking around.
MST3K from Netflix tonight!
Question: What are your lunches (or any meal) on the go?
