Oh wait, wrong picture….
I headed out to the gym in the snow, because schools were just delayed at the time, so I figured that the snow would end soon. I did the following workout:
- Chinups: 2
- Romanian barbell deadlift: 3 sets of 8 at 75 pounds
- Barbell bench press: 3 sets of 8 at 65 pounds (hard!)
- Seated lat row: 3 sets of 8 at 70 pounds
- Reverse lunges with 1 dumbell on shoulder: 3 sets at 20 pounds
- Arnold press: 3 sets of 10 with 10 pound dumbbells
- Plank: 3 sets with 90 second holds.
The planks were hard today. I did okay with the first 2 sets, then had to touch down my knees on the 3rd.
While I was working out (and I was the only one at the gym!) the radio began listing schools closures instead of delays. It was snowing pretty hard, so I decided to not do cardio and just go home. Good thing, too. We ended up with 9 inches of snow!
That meant no Wednesday bagel…booooo!!!! Oh well. Had a nice warm and nummy breakfast of cream of wheat cooked with a banana, cocoa powder, and topped with almond butter and a few sprinkles of dark chocolate chips.
After doing it bit of work, it was time to shovel the driveway! Here I am all ready to go out and shovel.
I forgot that shoveling is not only cardio, but it is a strength workout as well. I was already tired, too. But, at least it is done. We have a wimpy electric snowblower, which can’t handle the packed stuff at the end of the driveway from the plows, so that is done by hand still.
Lunch time was an egg sandwich. You all know the drill!
This anjou pear was delightful, too!
This is one of those days where I am so thankful that I work at home and don’t have to commute in this stuff. I need to really remember that when I get frustrated.
I had a blanket and a cat on my lap while working for extra warmth. Plus, John made lattes!
Ornament of the day:
America runs on Dunkins, right? We do get coffee from there. In fact, DD is about 1/2 mile from my house and I pass it on one of my regular run routes. My sister got me this ornament. I do like donuts, but they are pretty rare for me nowadays.
Mondo stirfry for dinner! I used 2 veggies in it! Shredded brussel sprouts and broccoli, plus some chicken and teryaki sauce. It made a huge plate. Plus a kiwi.
I am going to try to fiddle with the comments so that hopefully they will notify those who want to be. We will see if it works!
Question: Do you run on Dunkins?
