Thanks again for all of you offering to send me pumpkin LOL! We have 5 4 cans left. No worries, we find more 😀
I was just going to hit the treadmill today, but then I decided to dink around with weights. I missed my lifting and it’s been 10 days, so that is long enough of a break!
I decided to start with a chin up. Funny thing is, I have never actually tried one to see if I could do it. I just did the negative ones in the NROLW book. It was so hard to lower myself slowly that I never thought to just try pulling myself up. 🙄 So, I grabbed the bar and gave it a try. I actually did it! I was shocked! I tried another one, and it was successful, but I had to swing my body and use momentum to get up there, so I won’t count that one. Yes!! 1 chin up
Then I did the following:
- Barbell deadlift/row combo: 3 sets of 8 at 65 pounds
- Pliet squat with dumbbell: 3 sets of 10 at 35 pounds
- Horizontal wood chop: 3 sets of 8 at 50 pounds
- Seated lat row: 3 sets of 8 at 70 pounds
- YTWL: 3 sets of 8 with 10 pound dumbbells
40 minutes on the treadmill later and it was home to lunch! I opened one of said pumpkin cans and made some pumpkin oats with cranberry sauce!
Plus cafe au lait….. yum…..
Lots more paperwork for my refinance. The appraisal didn’t come in quite where we wanted it on the rental property, so we have to bring some money to closing to cover costs. I was hoping it would appraise high enough to roll those costs in. You need a 75% LTV ratio for investment properties. That’s okay, though – the amount we will be saving in interest will recoup that in 10 months. I just wish they would all get on the same page, you know? If you have a tandem group working on the application, don’t each person call me with the same questions! 😡
Lunch was protein packed with some plain FF greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, strawberries and some of my cranapple spice granola
This was a cold lunch, though – and it’s cold and drizzly here! I had a chill all afternoon.
I have a sweet tooth today, so I satisfied it with some dark chocolate and Fiber Select Wheat Thins with my latte:
I so love sweet/salty combinations.
We had dinner cooking all day in the crockpot. I put some boneless pork chops and BBQ sauce in the crockpot and cooked on low all day. The meat was quite good and tender. Maybe a touch dry.
Nothing a little extra sauce can’t take care of. The comice pear was soo good today, too! Some pears are really good and some aren’t, and you never know until you bite into it.
Working a little later tonight as we are just getting files back up to speed after the holiday. Then it is watching MNF – Go Saints!!! New Orleans is my 2nd favorite football team, cause I love N’awlins so (2 months until we are there, too!!).
This is how dedicated a kitty mom I am – do I have the cat move? No – I sit on the edge of the chair so I don’t bother her:
John took this pic as I am writing this post!
Question: Those of you with pets, do you hate to disturb them?
