Rainy, icky day here. I actually slept until a little after 7am! Yay! My gym opens at 8 on Saturday, so I went there this morning to do a little lifting. I was just doing that, so I didn’t snack ahead of time.
- 10 minute warmup on the stationary bike
- Barbell squat/push press: 3 x 8 45 pounds
- Stationary lunge: 3 x 8 35#
- 1 point dumbbell row: 3 x 8 25 pounds
- Step ups: 3 x 8 30 pounds
- Push ups: 3 x 8
- Cable woodchop: 3 x 8 45 pounds
- Planks: 3 x 2 minute holds
Yay on the planks! Zipped on home. I drove to the gym since it was raining. Out of bananas, no pumpkin and I just had pancakes yesterday, so I made a different breakfast today:
1-minute muffin topped with chocolate PB2 frosting! It was quite good. Not for those that are afraid of fat, but so filling and full of fiber!
After a Chobani yogurt with cereal lunch, we headed out to the library. The library was recently redone connecting the old building with a new rennovation. It’s lovely.
Stopped at a new place downtown called The Chocolate Mill. It’s kind of an upscale chocolate shop/bakery that serves breakfast and lunch. I don’t have many pictures of the inside as there were so many people. I’ll have to be more detailed at a later point. We waited in line for quite a while and I stared at these:
so that’s what I got. Plus a skim latte.
I really loved the little cinnamon roll. Small desserts always are so appreciated! I do wish (as did John) that there was more than 1 size latte. This was a smaller cup than we do at home. The flavor was quite good, although maybe a bit bitter with the crema. Definitely need another visit here to really make up my mind.
We sat with a few books while trying to decide on our winter vacation next year.
We didn’t go anywhere together this year, and I only took a long weekend to New Orleans with my sister. So, John and I need a nice long getaway.
Tonight went to see the original black & white 1925 Phantom of the Opera movie with live organ music with my mom. Fun! Wish I could have taken a pic during the showing! This performer brought his own organ!
Then we ended the evening at Starbucks and I got a “why bother” 😀
Sleeping cuteness – I think she didn’t want me to take her picture!
Talk to you tomorrow!
Question: Do you go to the library? And how many books on average do you take out?
