Monday and back to work for most people, although I started back yesterday. My Broncos are done for the year…. sigh…. time to put away the fan apparel for the year (except the snuggie – too cold to put that away). Now I need to root on my adopted team – The Saints!
Headed out to the gym this morning after a date with nut butter on it for a snack. We got a box of those big medjool dates rather than the Dole ones we usually get. Why did no one tell me how delicious they are?? I had no idea!
Anyhoo – here is today’s lifting workout – aka workout A:
- Chin ups: 2 sets of 2
- Barbell deadlift row combo: 3 sets of 8 at 65 pounds
Supersets of these 2 moves:
- 1-arm dumbbell snatch: 3 sets of 8 at 15 pounds
- Pliet squats: 3 sets of 8 holding a 35 pound dumbbell
- T-push ups: 3 sets of 3
- Bent over dumbbell row
Here is a video of the T-push up. Basically you start as a normal push up, then rotate the body so you are perpendicular to the floor and reach out the other arm to the ceiling. 1 set is a right and left push up. These are pretty hard. Turn down the sound button, btw…
In viewing this video, I see I need to rotate my legs more. It’s also like the anonymous workout – I could have at least smiled for you guys or even looked at the camera! 😳
Did some cardio on the stationary bike and then came home to waffle goodness!
Used my protein pancake recipe (with 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg). Topped with a mix of 1/4 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup of pumpkin with a dollop of cranberry sauce.
I vote this Yum+!!
Seems like most of you like Indian food. Yay! The nice thing about going to an Indian restaurant is that there is a huge variety of food to satisfy anybody from a vegetarian to a meat eater. That can be tough when choosing places to eat out at with a large group.
Speaking of Indian, I had the leftover dal from yesterday made it really multicultural for lunch with a mix of Greek and Mexican! I put the rest of the dal in a tortilla with a bit of brown rice and some feta cheese and heated it up in the microwave.
It was delicious! I need to make more lentils to have on hand.
I did well not snacking today. I am sitting here with my Beck cards and the one for me that says “It’s okay to be hungry.” I have a little trouble with that, but I went from latte time to dinner without snacking. Go me! Okay, so it’s only 2.5 hours, but hey – gotta start somewhere! Think I might discuss this tomorrow in a post.
John cooked up a couple burgers for dinner, which I have rarely, as you know.
This tasted so good! I put some laughing cow cheese on top and hot sauce! Loves me some hot sauce. I think it is my favorite condiment.
I can’t believe there is no more Monday Night Football! Now is the time when we start wandering around wondering what to do with ourselves LOL

Tomorrow is run day at the gym. Trying to decide how long I want to go for…..
Question: What is your favorite condiment?
