Yay – the weekend is here! Today went by really fast, too.
I actually slept in until 7:15 – which is pretty late for me. I moseyed on down to the gym, where I did my workout:
- Chin up: 2
- Barbell squats: 3 sets of 8 at 85 pounds
- Widegrip lat pull down: 3 sets of 8 at 70 pounds
- Pushups: 3 sets of 10
- Static lunge: 3 sets of 10 with 25 pound plate
- Prone Cuban snatch: 3 sets of 10 with 10 pound dumbbells.
- Incline reverse crunch: 3 sets of 10.
Then just zoned out walking on the treadmill for 1/2 hour. A little easier day today, since I ran yesterday.
Came home and had some oats with fresh pumpkin, protein powder and blackberry jam!
Then sat and relaxed and chatted with John. Sometimes I really have to make myself relax. I always feel like I have to go, go, go. Need to remember that down time is just as important as up time! It’s very difficult for me to just do nothing. Some of that is just my inner energy and some of it is spillover from working a production-based job.
I hung around the house the rest of the morning and made some more granola. I’ll post the recipe this weekend some time.
Lunch was a wrap made with laughing cow, pear slices, and chicken. Heated up in the X-box. With brussel sprouts for lunch!
I wanted a warm filling lunch, as I was headed out shopping and didn’t want to be tempted at the mall.
I was hoping that the stores wouldn’t be so crowded on a weekday, but it was pretty crowded! Eeeek! I could almost feel the flu germs around. 😯 I actually rocked on the shopping. I got all of my purchasing done – so no more stores for me for the rest of the year – put your hands together everybody!
I really, really wanted a hot pretzel. They smelled so good, but I declined. Instead, I took a break for some sustenance:
Caffeine and I are partners for life, forever and ever, amen.
Got home right around dinner time. I am almost embarrassed to show my photo of dinner – can you say rut? I know you readers have never seen so many salads on this blog than you have in the past few weeks!
That’s tea in the mug. It is cold and windy out and I needed something warm! It’s an almond cookie tea that I got at Sensibiliteas a couple weeks ago.
Ornament of the day:
This is another ornament I made this year. The first one, actually, I think. I used this pattern with a bit of editing (my globe is bigger than the one in the pattern). I have been having fun doing these. 🙂
Question: How is your holiday shopping coming along?
Stay tuned on Monday – I have a giveaway coming up!
