Lifting move of the week and lost food.

Good old Wednesday! I was up too early again, but such is life, no? Took a protein hit and then biked to the gym.

Seated Lat Row 3 sets of 12 at 45# Back

Overhead Triceps Ext 3 sets of 15 with 20# DB Triceps
Standing calf raise 3 sets of 15 at 50# Calves

Little extra leg work today.

The lifting move of the week: The YTWL! Named for the shape your arms make when doing the exercise. Kind of like YMCA, but without the catchy tune (although you can hum it if you want). This is a great shoulder exercise because it hits all the different muscles of the shoulder. Start with a very light weight, as it is pretty difficult (and the shoulder is easy to injure).

You can do 4 repetitions of each letter.  I think a lot of women neglect their shoulders, but they really can make the difference in how your top half looks.  Nice rounded shoulder caps help with body symmetry.

John met me at the gym and we biked to our usual addiction bagel.  Nice morning to eat outside!

I was sitting too close to a barberry bush and got poked with a thorn, but it was so pretty I leaned over and took a picture:

It was kind of humid, can you tell? Such a nice morning to bike.  One thing I love about my workday starting at 10 is that I can do all this stuff in the morning like work out and bike to breakfast.

Fairly uneventful at work.  Before I knew it, time for lunch!  I actually found a can of tuna in the pantry.  I thought I had gotten rid of it all, but I guess I didn’t.  So, that was on the menu today.  Maybe it isn’t so bad after all.

Also found 1/2 a sweet potato in the fridge, which I microwaved and topped with laughing cow. Yum!

Somebody wanted some attention while I worked today, and I just cannot resist this face:

I was hungry, though – so she did have to get up after a while.  Made some cashew butter last night.  Dang I forgot how good that stuff is.  I had some on a date for a snack:

It was so good I had another with the latte:

I think the food processor might be on its last legs.  Like a lot of things in our house LOL!  Who needs to win the lottery? – raise your hand!!

John and I rounded up more leftovers to eat.  Funny how sometimes it just seems like there are a lot in the fridge at one time.  I defrosted some of the lentil/rice dish we made with the pan roasted broccoli!

Good stuff.

Going to spend some time in the garden weeding tonight.  My goal to keep the garden weed free is going well this year (of course, it is only early June).  If anyone wants black-eyed susans, please let me know.  I have a 100 volunteers growing that are in the wrong spot 😀

Happy running day to all!  Look at that, I didn’t even run today.  John ran this evening, but I already had done enough for the day.    I ate strawberries instead……

Question:  Do you ‘lose’ food in the fridge or pantry?

    I stick pretty close to a “just in time” food inventory, so losses aren’t really an issue for me. In order to increase my activity level, I’m trying to follow the European model – walking to the store on a near-daily basis. Right now I’m off to get some berries and Fage for my treat tonight!

    Hi Pixie!

    That cashew butter looks like some decadent caramel candy to me. And you are challenging me to increase my difficulty in the gym.

    I know where everything is in the fridge and the freezer but hubby is always asking me, “Do you even know what’s in here?” haha

    I tried gardening one year and the weeds won 🙁 I couldn’t keep up on them but then I started big with a 60’x100′ garden 🙂

    I’ve never seen those moves combined like that. I’ll have to give it a try.

    My food processor was broken for a month b/c of a piece of plastic that couldn’t cost more that $.03. I use that thing all the time. Let me tell you. I was rough.

    It’s embarrassing: I find food that is dated 2007! Talk about losing food!!!!
    I had a bagel attack this morning when I went into Paneras for coffee. They have the WORST coffee by the way. I don’t think they clean their carafes. Anyway – I p/u blueberry, cinn.raisin bagels. One each. Took a nibble of both and put them in the freezer. I hope since I nibbled on them that Ted leaves them alone (oh greedy me!).

      Panera coffee is mediocre at best. There is always grounds in it! But, it is caffeine at any rate LOL!

    I lose food all the time. I’m the only person allowed in the fridge because I’m the only one that can find a place for everything!

    Man, all of your eats looks so amazing! Do you make your cashew butter homemade? (sounds amazing). I would also be interested in your protein waffle recipe if you would be willing to share =)
