No biking to bagels this morning. My eyes popped open at 6:30 and wouldn’t go back to sleep. It was raining, so I just drove to the gym in the dark since I didn’t have to wait for it to get light like I do biking.
New Rules of Lifting: Stage 6 Workout B:
- Reverse lunge, one dumbbell on shoulder: 3 x 6 at 25 pounds
- Dumbbell 2-point row: 3 x 6 at 30 pounds
- Dumbbell push press: 1 x 6 at 15 pounds, 2 x 6 at 20 pounds
- Back extension: 3 x 8 at 100 pounds
- Incline reverse crunch: 3 x 8
Assessment: Increased the dumbbell weights on all of the first 3 exercises! 20 pound dumbbells on the push press was hard, though, and unwieldly. Also, the lunge with more weight is hard on the balance, which I guess is good.
Picked John up and off we went to bagels! Delicious warm coffee on a cold and drizzly day:
My replacement camera arrived today! Hello beautiful –
And hello camera 😉
The camera and I are both pink items in this picture!
I proceeded to take a 1000 macro shots of everything. How I missed my in-your-face food shots LOL! Even Pixie was getting annoyed with my picture taking.
Can’t you just hear her saying “Enough already, I’m trying to nap here for goodness sake!”
I had a chill all morning and decided on breakfast for lunch:
Pumpkin cream of wheat with the last of the cranberry sauce and some dulce de leche. It’s all flecked with vanilla bean goodness. Yum!
I had some snackage problems today.
Plus some unpictured cereal. Not sure if it was the blood donation or something else. I need to nix cereal from the house. I never actually eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast. It is pretty much only for having on yogurt, but I have found that I really love to snack on it. It has become red light for me, so off to the dungeon it goes for a while. Will I never learn???
Shaking it up for dinner:
You don’t see that on my plate very often! Little cheese raviolis. So good and they really hit the spot tonight. I don’t have pasta too often because of the small amount of food for the calories. Although with mini cheese raviolis, it looks like you get more. A serving of these is 240 calories, which isn’t too bad.
More soapmaking in progress as I type this. Tonight’s menu is gardenia, applejack, and coconut.
Stay tuned tomorrow for one of my thinking posts!
