Weekend! Put your hands together everybody! I so wanted to sleep in the morning and go to the gym a little bit later, but the garbage truck woke me up and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I got up about 15 minutes later than usual. The gym was pretty quiet today, as usual on Fridays.
- 10-minute warmup on the stationary bike
- Chinups: 1 set of 3, 2 sets of 2
- Barbell squats: 3 sets of 8 at 85 pounds
- Seated lat rows: 3 sets of 15 at 45 pounds
- 1-legged dumbbell deadlifts: 3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs
- Prone Cuban snatch: 3 sets of 15 with 8# DBs
- Reverse crunches: 3 sets of 15
- Pushups: 3 sets of 15
This was extra tiring for some reason. I don’t know why, but I struggled through the weights today. Then I hopped on the treadmill for 30 minutes with a walk/run combo. Listened to the Dirty Dozen Brass Band today. I love them! You know they are based in New Orleans? John and I have a dream to own a 2nd place there. It will take a lot to make that happen, though. Better start playing the lottery
Breakfast was custard cream of wheat! I mashed up 1/2 a banana and added it to the pot with the water, brought to a boil and added the cream of wheat. Then I whipped in the egg whites. Thickened up right nicely!
Topped with chocolate sauce 😯 and peanut butter. Deeelicious.
Headed over to my rental property to check on the status before the open house and broker open coming up. My tenant is actually very neat clutter-wise (which is great), but things were just dirty. Splatters on the walls and grime on things. I did paint touch ups and told him what needed to happen for open houses, showings, and stuff. It is extremely hard for me to not tell him how to live until the house sells, you know? I have no control over whether he wipes off the stove or cleans the mirrors in the bathroom. I hope it sells fast. It’s actually a very cute house, a little small, but it has a huge yard and we put in granite counter tops.
I was pretty hungry for lunch when I got back, and grabbed something really quick: shredded wheat topped with strawberries. I almost never eat just a bowl of cereal, but it was fast!
Back out for more errands, including a new pair of shoes! I need walking shoes as mine are all worn out. I had a gift certificate to Dick’s. I tried on so many shoes, and actually ended up with another pair of Saucony shoes (on sale!!).
They are running shoes, but so comfy that I am just going to walk in them. I have to go with what make my feet feel happy, and if they want to be in the running shoes, then so be it. When I slipped my feet into these, I just knew they were the right pair.
Jody – just for you.
Pixie chillaxing on the dishwasher because it’s warm (it’s a portable one). She wants you all to notice her big feet.
Needed to use up the last of the venison for dinner, so I made a BBQ venison quesedilla with laughing cow, chopped venison and BBQ sauce on a smart carb wrap.
Paired with pan sauteed brussels and the last kiwi. We need to be very judicious with our shopping this week so we don’t have a lot of fresh produce left before our trip.
I am looking for a few guest posts to use if I can’t get online as much during our trip at the end of the month. Is anyone interested? Please shoot me an email at javaqueen01 (at) yahoo dot com. Sorry for the late request!
Question: Are you brand loyal with shoes?
