In an effort to be extra green this week, I decided that I was going to bike to the gym no matter what this morning. I didn’t even check the weather to see the temperature, I just bundled up and went. I knew it was above freezing because there was no frost on the car 😀
I have 1 week left of New Rules of Lifting!
- Barbell squat: 2 sets of 8 at 85 pounds
- Dumbbell squats with heels lifted: 4 sets of 15 at 20 pounds
- Overhead shoulder press: 4 sets of 20 with 12 pound weights
- Step ups: 4 sets of 15 with 25 pound dumbbells
- Underhand grip lat pulldown: 4 sets of 15 at 60 pounds
Man oh man. I am not liking this part very much. I love lifting, but this is pretty intense. I tend to take a little more than 30 seconds between sets and that is what makes this so rough.
Walked on the treadmill for a bit and then biked home. The sun was bright and shiny, so the ride wasn’t bad at all. I cannot believe I am still getting on my bike in mid November LOL! Biking makes me so happy.
If you read my post earlier, you know I had steel cut oats for brekkie. Num, num.
I will show you a pic of my cafe au lait that accompanied it – even though the Broncos do *not* deserve to be featured on my blog right now…..
Annoying day at work today. Tough dictators makes for slowness and frustration. Ah well, not every day is quick and easy, right?
Took a lunch break for another waffle sandwich! I am so into sweet and savory right now.
This sandwich was roasted turkey breast, laughing cow cheese, and apple butter! And yes, to answer a question, I do toast the waffles.
So, my new camera is acting up. Okay, my refurbished camera is acting up. You can see what is happening on this post. That pinkish hue gets on a lot of my photos and the LED screen gets all funked up. It doesn’t happen all the time, but too many times to just deal with it. It’s under warranty, so I was on the phone with Olympus to get it straightened away to send to them. Of course, they won’t tell me if the repair is under warranty until they see the camera, but come on!
I am so addicted to taking pictures that I am panicking about not having this camera again. Although my mom is going to let me borrow her new camera.
Snack with my latte:
So yesterday evening was not a good eating time for me. You know how I blogged about wanting to eat yesterday? Well I did. I managed to have some toast with apple butter, some dark chocolate chips and pretzels and a little leftover bread pudding during the course of the football game last night. And I did not feel full! What the heck is up with that? How could I possibly not be full? Bah! So, today is really one of those days where I leaned out the calories to make up for that.
No broccoli for dinner tonight! Heehee. I did a basic sauteed chicken breast and roasted brussel sprouts, plus some applesauce.
A-1 sauce for dippin’. I am in a roasted, sauteed vegetable rut. Like you all couldn’t see that for yourselves! Although, I like my ruts. Guess that’s why I get in them!
Evening snack for MNF:
This is pretty good. Nice coffee flavor, although I don’t drink sweetened coffee, so it was a little weird to have a sweet coffee flavor in my mouth. I like the gingerbread larabar better. What I really need to do is make more of my own.
Question: Are you in any kind of rut now?
