Back to the gym today! It was dark when I got up, so I put a reflective band on my leg for biking. Then I realized that I forgot to put my bag rack back on my bike after the race on Sunday. D’oh! So, by the time I got done fumbling that on, it was much lighter out. 😀
I have missed my lifting! I am backing up into stage 6 a little since I took a week off. Workout A:
- Negative chin ups: 3 sets of 1 (still just dangling there).
- Lat pull down: 10 sets of 2 at 60 pounds (slow release)
- Barbell split squats: 2 sets of 10 at 65 pounds
- Pushups (the real way!): 2 sets of 10.
John arrived just as I was finishing the pushups and off we biked to bagels! Oh how I missed my bagel. Haven’t had one since last Wednesday!
Come to momma!
And le cafe.
Really nice day for biking. I wasn’t sure if my legs were a little twingy from the workout or a little leftover duathloning, but it was so great to be back on the bike! My favorite sport.
Spied my pink item while at the cafe:
I love Wednesday mornings. I don’t have to start work until 10, although sometimes I start early – but not on Wednesdays! I enjoy the time with my hubby and relaxing.
I decided on something way different for lunch:
Microwaved sweet potato topped with pan sauteed broccoli and chick peas with a wedge of laughing cow (plus some cumin seeds thrown into the saute pan). I give this a thumb’s up and it was very different for me. I never used to like sweet potatoes.
I was having so much fun playing with food today that I decided to carry that on for dinner! We had cooked chicken and I had made the cranberry sauce last night. Well, in the spirit of fall, I made a sandwich panini style! I used an Arnold sandwich thin, sliced chicken breast, cranberry sauce, and Cabot light cheddar cheese and smashed between 2 hot pans:
All that was missing was some stuffing and it would have been totally perfect!
And you know a girl needs her chocolate! Love those Attunes!
