It’s my weekend! I think I am resigned to just wake up early no matter what. About 6:45 and I got up to hit the gym.
- Barbell dead lifts: 2 x sets of 8 at 75 pounds
- Static lunge with rear foot elevated: 4 sets of 15 with 25 pound plate
- Push ups: 4 sets of 15
- Romanian deadlifts: 4 sets of 15 at 65 pounds
- Bent over barbell row: 4 sets of 15 with 20 pound weights
This is exhausting, I have to say, with the circuit. This last stage is definitely the hardest! I then walked on the treadmill and did 5 minutes of jogging to see if it would bother my back. It didn’t, so I think I am okay on that front! I haven’t been running since Sunday.
Came home and had a relaxed and lazy breakfast chatting with John:
Pumpkin Cream of Wheat with pecans and cranberry sauce. Warm and filling. I used to eat Cream of Wheat a lot when I was little, it’s nice to discover it again!
Do you ever have those days where they go by so fast and you didn’t even do anything? That was today for me. I did spend some time making a list of priorities and projects I want to accomplish and got a head start on one of the biggest ones, which is refinancing my rental property. I really hope it works out. Sometimes lists help, sometimes they freak me out!
Lunch break was protein powered yogurt!
Kind of like breakfast, I had pumpkin in the yogurt with some vanilla protein powder. Topped with a packet of animal crackers leftover from Halloween.
Took a few more things to the consignment shop. I think some of my things sold, or at least I hope so because I didn’t see them. They are only inventoried up through the middle of October, so anything sold after that isn’t on file yet. Bummer because I was kind of wanting to shop some 😀
Something different for dinner!
This is a mix you just add water to and cook. Deep fried would be best, I’m sure, but we pan fried them. I also shredded and sauteed some brussel sprouts and made a bed for the falafel patties and topped with dried cranberries.
I realize looking at these pictures that I had cranberries with each meal except my afternoon snack (not pictured).
John asked if I wanted to go Christmas shopping tomorrow! I love my hubby It will have to be after a longer run tomorrow. Going to do at least 5 miles, I think.
I’m going to sign off and get working on those ornaments so I can get something done by Christmas LOL. This isn’t a very exciting post, sorry about that. I sure know how to live it up 😳 Have a great night!
Question: Do you make lists?
