Ah the weekend. Fridays are never crowded at the gym. Guess nobody wants to work out on Fridays? Had a protein drink and then biked in. I decided to take it easy on the legs today with a race coming up Sunday.
|Stiff-legged dead lifts||3 sets of 10 with 45# bar||Lower body|
|1-arm dumbbell row||3 sets of 10 with 20# DB||Back|
|Chin ups||2 sets of 2, 2 sets of 1||Upper body|
|Railing squats||3 sets of 10 – body weight||Lower body|
|Standing Cable Fly||3 sets of 10 at 30# (each side)||Chest|
|Shoulder Shrug||3 sets of 12 with 30# bar||Shoulders|
|Horizontal Wood chop||3 sets of 10 at 30#||Abs|
|Nosebreaker||3 sets of 10 with 25# bar||Triceps|
Nice non stressful workout today. I rest 1 minute between sets for the most part unless I am supersetting any of the exercises. The above workout took about 35-40 minutes. Then I biked home for some brekkie!
It was a cooler morning, so warmth was in order. Pumpkin cream of wheat – custard style. Cooked with molasses as the sweetener and topped with a bit of crystalized ginger and toasted pecans.
Yum. I spent a good chunk of the morning puttering around in the garden. A few new things today:
Potted painted daisy
This thing is a monster, too. The twine broke that it climbs onto the porch along and it is just drooping in a big mass:
More sweet potato with laughing cow and sauteed broccoli. I was trying to find a good protein source and didn’t feel like eggs and chicken was set for dinner. So I mixed some strawberry protein powder with greek yogurt. I think I would try freezing this mixture.
More miscellaneous outside work today. We are working on the southeast side of the house which is kind of overgrown with vegetation. It is really a nice day outside today!
Straight up latte snack:
plus a granola bar.
Think the warranty on a PlayStation would cover cat butt?
It’s off the floor so it doesn’t get stepped on, but Pixie thinks it is her personal seat. This is why we can’t have nice things….
Classic Lori salad for dinner:
Those bagged salads are so handy. We get either Dole brand or Fresh Express (I like spring mix). One bag makes 2 salads for me 😳 That’s a lot of greens. I am totally vegging out in a good way today.
I didn’t bike today (other than to the gym) so that I could get in one last run before Sunday’s race. I wanted to do 3 miles one last time. I did pretty well. Completely pain free. I finished up in 33:33. A little bit faster than last time. Tack on 0.1 miles and I hope to finish up under 35 minutes on Sunday.
Banana soft serve. I put cinnamon in it and topped with a bit of chocolate sauce. What a great post run treat!
I am in a really good spot with food lately. It feels good.
Question: Do you do bagged salad mixes?
