Wednesday! Only 2 more work days for me.
Had a date with peanut butter (while frowning at my finger) before hitting up the gym. I did 10 minutes on the stationary and then hit up the weights:
- Chin ups: 1 set of 3, 2 sets of 2. These are not getting any easier.
- Dumbbell pliet squats: 3 sets of 15 with 25# dumbbell
- Arnold press: 3 sets of 15 with 8# DBs
- Wide grip lat pull down: 3 sets of 15 at 50#
- Split squats: 3 sets of 15 with 25# plate
- Bent over dumbbell row: 3 sets of 10 with 20# DBs
Then I got on the treadmill for walk and run. I just stuck 1 mile of running in there with no intervals. My hammies are still pretty tired from all the dead lifts I did on Monday! I listened to Gaelic Storm today. Talk about making you want to move! 45 minutes went by in a snap! I think I may need to find some more podcasts to listen to just to mix things up. Anyone have favorites to share?
Then I swung by and picked up John, who was on his way walking to meet me and got our Wednesday staple!
And some of this:
To answer a couple emails – I do not put everything I eat onto the blog. Just most stuff. I doubt that you all would be interested in seeing the 3 or 4 chips I grab or bite of something John is eating LOL! I haven’t been putting my pre workout snack for a while because it is dark in the morning when I get up. However, just to show you – today will feature a snap of everything that passed my lips.
While decided what to make for lunch, I had this:
Lunch was a smoothie made with 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, oat fiber, fresh pineapple, coconut, and cinnamon.
I should have used ice, as it was somewhat lukewarm, which isn’t really to bad on a cold day, but maybe not the most refreshing.
Afternoon snack was the standard latte:
and a protein hit of this:
I wasn’t the only one snacking:
Pixie was sitting all pretty for a picture forever, but then she yawned just as I snapped this! At least she is awake.
While thinking about dinner, I snacked on some of these:
Food Should Taste Good chips. I lurve this brand.
Dinner was my world famous BBQ chicken salad!
Hello Rutville – population: Me 😀
Plus a tart American kiwi.
Finished up work later tonight and made a nighttime snack of chocolate chips and pretzels. Unpictured on this are the few peanuts I sprinkled on there. See my snacking problem?
I have an announcement to share tomorrow morning 😀 Stay tuned!
I will leave you with something that I say a lot, and it happened to be in a newspaper article I was reading this morning!
It’s true! Do you speak to yourself positively all the time? You should 🙂
