Boy howdy it was hot last night! We didn’t think to put in the window AC unit and it was 85 yesterday, which meant the bedroom was stifling hot. Ugh. So, not the best night’s sleep. Humid this morning, too. After quaffing my protein drink, I headed out to the gym.
15 minutes on the stationary (3 miles). Then the iron:
- Deadlift/row combo: 3 sets of 10 with 45# bar
- Dumbbell squats: 3 sets of 8 with 10# DBs
- Chin ups: 4 sets of 1
- Barbell chest press: 3 sets of 10 at 55#
- Face pulls: 3 sets of 15 with 20#
- Crunches: 3 sets of 15
- Hammer curls: 3 sets of 15 with 12# DBs
- Good mornings: 3 sets of 10 with 30# bar
- Overhead triceps press: 3 sets of 15 with 10# DBs.
Assessment: Couple exciting things – I did squats with weights for the first time in about a month. I do find that I tend to lean to the right because of the weakness in my left leg, so I have to be really careful not to do that or I will end up with a huge right thigh LOL. I actually tried the 15# dumbbells, but couldn’t quite do it. I also did full chin ups for the first time in a month. I lost a wee bit of strength on these, as evidenced by the single sets, but I am pleased that these do not hurt to do now! Yay!
Even though it was pretty warm and humid this morning, I decided to have oats for breakfast. When John shopped without me a few weeks ago, he got quick cook oats instead of rolled ones, so this bowl looks funny. Pumpkin oats topped with nutzzo and the last of the maple cream.
In my new bowl! I don’t know why clear dishes and cups are so appealing to me, but they are.
I have to tell you, my leg is driving me crazy today. I am having phantom itching now. I still have the numb spots on my knee and my inner calf. Those spots itch now, but when I scratch them, I can’t feel that – so the itch never goes away. I had this some yesterday, and more today. Maybe this means the feeling will come back soon. I have been rubbing my leg, because I can’t tell how hard I am scratching those spots and I don’t want to break the skin. This is fun – I told John it’s like spinning the sciatica symptom wheel to see what comes up for the day It’s always something different. I do like variety at any rate…..
Lunch time with its lame accompanying photo:
Lunch eaten at the computer – guilty as charged. Tuna wrap hidden in there. We didn’t really buy enough fresh fruit for me this week (we kind of shopped in a hurry yesterday), so I went with applesauce.
Who’s ready for chocolate??
As much fun as I had working Storm yesterday, I am a cat person at heart.
Dinner time. John cooked up pork and chicken for the week, so I had trouble choosing, but ended up with pork 😀
I love anjou pears. I decided I don’t like the green pears as much.
Done with work and will be going out to work in the garden a little bit. Or possibly out for coffee as John got the scooter running for the year, vroom, vroom!
Question: Do you ever eat at the computer (or somewhere not at the table)?
