Seems like about half of you like tofu and half don’t! It seems either all or nothing as well. One of those polarizing foods.
Killer work out today. No biking, because it was still rainy and breezy when I got up 🙁 Tomorrow, though! I had a protein snack before leaving the house.
After a treadmill warm up, I did the following:
- Chin ups: 3 sets of 2
- Barbell squats: Warm up of 10 at 45#, set of 10 at 75#, set of 8 at 95#, set of 6 at 105#, set of 4 at 115#!
- Incline barbell chest press: 3 sets of 8 at 55#
- Reverse lunge/forward reach: 3 sets of 10 with 8# DBs
- Walking lunges: 3 sets of 8 (each leg) with 15# DBs
- Push ups: 3 sets of 10
- Front raise: 3 sets of 10 with 8# DBs
- Triceps kickback: 3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs
- Reverse crunches: 3 sets of 15
- Lower back extension (machine): 3 sets of 10 at 100#
Then I got on the treadmill again, thinking I would do some HIIT or a little jogging, but I was completely wiped from that workout. It took about 45 minutes to get through that routine. I felt really weak, too. Lifting can do that to you! After 10 minutes, I got off and picked up John for bagels.
I did not try this coffee, but I found the name intriguing.
It’s probably 1/2 caff, which is never on my morning agenda.
I was so hungry that I snarfed my bagel before a picture:
After I ate this, my stomach felt like nothing had even gone in, not even the large coffee! One of those bottomless pit days, I guess.
Got to work right away with another web conference. They have been conferencing us out this week!
Kashi cereal sample arrived in the mail (I heart Kashi):
I incorporated it into lunch with greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder and strawberries.
I used half of this sample. I really, really liked this cereal – which is a problem for me, as I am sure you all know how I have a cereal snack problem. I don’t know if I would dare have a whole box of this in the house. The little sample came with a $1 coupon, too! 😯
The sun has been trying to peek out a little today, with little showers. It’s definitely spring! I was looking at my garden bed today and more and more things are showing their heads. Yay!
Plus the last of the 100 calorie organic cookies:
These were also good.
Finished up work early today. I have scaled back my schedule a little bit. I was trying to hit a certain $ amount each day with lines and because we get paid more for certain lines than others (speech recognition versus straight transcription), I would never know when I would finish for the day, which was getting annoying. Plus, you just burn out after too many lines. I was giving myself some undue stress about it. With selling the rental house, it is not so imperative to have every line count. So, I have just been hitting the company minimum and it has made me much, much happier.
Dinner time! I was still feeling like a bottomless pit, so I sauteed up 2 cups of broccoli to make a stir fry with. Gotta bulk it up!
Yum!!! I hope I never get tired of broccoli.
Relaxing evening on tap tonight. We have an MST3K movie from Netflix to watch. I just love that show – it cracks me up. Which really cements my geekdom, I’ll tell you. 😳 This is one of the reasons I will have to keep John around forever. All of our shorthand jokes based on this show and The Simpsons would be too hard to train a new husband in.
Question: Is your job stressful, and if so, how do you relieve that?
