Slainte!! I love St. Patty’s Day! We have an Irish family, and I have that wonderful pasty, freckled skin 😀
It’s lifting day, and I needed to work off the nice dark chocolate binge I had last night. It’s not the chocolate stash of mine, but the stupid dark chocolate chips that John snacks on. They were up high, and I was up there getting some chocolate down for my mom and of course, I snagged some from the bag, and then snagged some more. I think it is the tinyness of them that makes them so snackable.
It was about 35 degrees when I got up, so I decided to bike to the gym. I was okay until about 1/2 mile in, when I realized it was pretty darn cold LOL! I had on double gloves, too. It’s only 1.7 miles away, so I toughed it out.
Had a nice tiring session today:
- Chin ups: 2 sets of 2, 1 set of 1
- Barbell squats: 10 at 45#, 10 at 75#, 8 at 95#, 6 at 105#, and 4 at 115# (YES!!)
- Seated rows: 3 sets of 10 at 60#
- Barbell chest press: 10 at 45#, 8 at 55#, 6 at 65#, 4 at 75# (YES!!)
- Good mornings: 3 sets of 10 with 45# bar
- Supine Row: 3 sets of 6 with body weight (These are really hard)
- Decline sit ups: 3 sets of 10.
- Front raise: 3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs
- Hammer curl: 3 sets of 8 with 15# DBs
- Bench dips: 3 sets of 10 with body weight.
Then I walked on the treadmill until John met me at the gym for breakfast! We elected to stay close to home, as it is a busy day for me, and biking to bagels would take a long time with Ridge St closed. So, we went to Cafe on the Park!
This place does it old school. My breakfast was 2 eggs with toast and home fries, plus coffee – all for $2.99! Can you beat that?
Then we biked home. It was warmer, but still a little brisk. Sunny, though. Makes me want to play hooky But alas, bills must be paid.
Since it is St Patty’s day, I decided to have Irish Steel Cut Oats for lunch – pumpkin style! These are the quick cook steel cut oats.
Working all day trying to get as much done as I can. Pixie visited and this was the best I could do dressing her up in green:
Can you believe I can still get the laptop on my lap with her there? She makes it hard, though 😀
I just set it on my thighs to preview how it will look after the chocolate ends up there anyway
Quick dinner before dog training tonight! Chicken on a bagel thin. I don’t even want to use the word bagel with these. They are just sandwich thins with a hole in the middle. Lame….
Final dog training class tonight. Storm being very good here:
Storm and Georgia with my sister and I:
Tonight is graduation night for the doggies! They all did a good job. I made homemade biscuits for them last night, too.
John came with tonight to see the graduation. It was a family affair as my parents were there with their dog, my sister and my niece! John and I headed out to Starbies for a cuppa after class and had a special cookie from my mom (came from QVC).
Skim latte and cookie. They cancel each other out, right? Think I need a detox tomorrow or something. Phew…. I at least need to refocus.
Catch you all on Thursday!
