Happy weekend! What a fabulous day. It was much cooler this morning biking to the gym, but I’ll take it!
Nice workout today:
|Stiff-leg deadlift||3 sets of 10 with 60# bar||Lower body|
|Chin ups||2 sets of 2, 3 sets of 1||Upper body|
|45 degree Sled Press||3 sets of 10 unweighted (50#)||Quads|
|Dumbbell pullover||3 sets of 10 with 25# DB||Back|
|Rope Crunch||3 sets of 15 at 30#||Abs|
|Barbell chest press||3 sets of 12 with 45# bar||Chest|
|Front Raise||3 sets of 15 with 5# DBs (10# total)||Shoulders|
|Nosebreaker||3 sets of 12 with 25# Bar||Triceps|
Felt quite good today. The sled press was good because I could focus on pushing with my weak left leg. Then – I got on the treadmill and jogged for 1.5 miles straight – woohoo! And even better, I was able to get the speed up to 5 mph. Maybe I can run that race in a couple weeks. No soreness running, which was good, just fatigue.
Biked home and since I am done with my no sugar experiment today, I sweetened up my cream of wheat with molasses. Is that lame that my first sugar is molasses?
I also popped a couple donut holes that John made while I was at the gym.
He gets up to all kinds of shenanigans when I am out.
Today was spent making soap. I got another order from my old customer. I love that because that money is just my spending money for me, and I bought myself something fun that will hopefully be here next week and I am pretty excited! It’s an early birthday present to me.
I was a little hungry, so I had this:
We are out of dates, so I just had the nut butter on a spoon 😳
Lunch time and you all knew this was coming with sugar back in:
Oh yea! This BBQ sauce is sweetened with agave, but still off limits for me for the week.
Here’s what’s blooming this week in the garden:
Ageratum (floss flower):
I also have some aphids already, so I went and got some native ladybugs to release tonight:
Good organic pest control. Hopefully it will work!
After some afternoon snackage of latte and chocolate(!!) (I left the camera in the car), I headed down to see my niece’s 5th grade orchestra play.
They each did a little solo. Logan plays the viola:
They were very cute. It was a super short concert, too. The other niece enjoyed as well:
Snacks afterwards. I had a peanut butter cookie, and my sister wanted a picture of whatever blue drink it was she had. I never did find out what it was.
Since it is Friday night, we went out to dinner tonight. We biked to East End Eatery. My favorite dinner companion:
My parents also met us there. John and I split a calzone. So good.
Lots o’ cheese, just like I like it! We were going to go to the library, but found out they closed at 6. So much for our rockin’ Friday night.
I am off to release those ladybugs and to seek out some snackage after that ride!
Question: Are you a spoon and nut butter person or always eaten with something?
