Lucky fridge find.

Happy Monday! I was up a little early today for my workout. I ate a Balance bar while getting my bag ready for the gym.

Probably not very mindfully, but oh well.

Biked to the gym for a good lifting session:

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Barbell split squats 3 sets of 8 with 75# bar Lower body
Seated lat row Pyramid with 12 reps at 40#
10 reps at 55#
8 reps at 70#
6 reps at 85# (hard!!)
Incline DB chest fly 3 sets of 10 with 20# DBs (40# total) Chest
Pliet squat 3 sets of 10 with 35# DB Legs
Horizontal cable woodchop 3 sets 10 (each side) at 30# Abs
Front Raise 3 sets with 10 with 8# DBs (16# total) Shoulders
Good Mornings 3 sets of 10 with 55# bar Lower back and hammies

I left out any arm work as I really felt like I got enough in, particularly with the rows. Then I hopped on the treadmill for 3 miles. Steady 5.5 mph pace, then in the last mile, I did a 5-minute interval at 6.5 mph (9:31 mile). Felt pretty good. I was good and sweaty then to bike home. Sort of a tiny brick biking home after running. Maybe just a paver….

Whipped up some protein waffles for brekkie!

Topped with a nanner mashed with 1 tbsp maple syrup and 5 toasted pecans.  I don’t like to have to measure out nuts, but I will easily eat an ounce plus if I don’t.

Job #1 was slow, so I was able to log in to job #2 and do my work there this morning.  Yay!  It’s actually kind of nice because the one account I do for them currently only has 4 doctors on it, so I am learning them very fast.  Although, this particular account is probably temporary.  My other job account has 400+ doctors as it is a multispecialty clinic.   That meant the morning went fast and it was lunchtime before I knew it!

Mmmm… cool yogurt and granola on a hot day.

The temps are warm again, but the humidity is not there, so the AC works pretty well at keeping the rooms cool.  We don’t have central air, but a window AC in our bedroom and a big one in the downstairs, which is pretty open.  I was ready for a lovely beverage, though, iced this time:

With a slice of bread and cashew butter.  I’s a hungry girl today.

Did really well on the no snacking front while preparing dinner, thanks again to the Altoids.  The urge to snack is really strong, though, and I struggled with it tonight.  It is definitely going to be a challenging habit to break.  The automatic reaching for nibbles kept wanting to happen and I had to be super conscious of it.

Dinner all ready to be eaten:

Baked clam strips and brussels.  That is a peach on the side there (covered in cinnamon, because that is how I roll around here).  This peach was okay.  Just a supermarket peach and not the most flavorful.  I am not fond of the fuzzy skin on peaches and much prefer nectarines.  We are on blueberry rationing right now because there is just a tiny bit left and I have to wait until Friday to get more.

I was mixing up a batch of bread dough and was looking for the other container of yeast in the fridge

and totally scored – I found an Attune bar!

Sweet!  It’s nice that little things make me happy 😀  This is my snack for tonight as I finish up work (booo).

Question:  Iced coffee or iced tea in summer?

    Yes to both! Just no caffeine after, say, 4 p.m., or it affects my sleep.

    Your “not very mindfully” on the Balance bar cracked me up; hey, you were mindful enough to take a picture! I’ve been thinking about photographing what I eat lately to help me improve mindfulness…but I usually forget about it before I start eating. (Doing okay with it today, though…new habits are hard to form!)

    Laughing over “Sort of a tiny brick biking home after running. Maybe just a paver….”, too!

    I’m another vote for both. If I’m in a cafe in the morning, I get iced tea. If I’m in a cafe in the afternoon, I get an iced skim latte. First thing in the morning at home it is always hot coffee though, no matter the time of year.

    Believe it or not, I drink hot tea all year round. I stop by Dunkin’ Donuts a couple of times a year for their iced coffee with cream no sugar. It’s a real treat, as is a sweet tea which is so good down here in the south.

    You are hardcore with those rows!

    I love iced tea, but the kind that’s about 95% sugar….so if I had to drink real iced tea of iced coffee, I would probably lean towards iced coffee. But I truly love super cold water when I’m hot.

    I’ve never drank tea or coffee! Snacking(constant shovelling of food really) was a big habit for me to break. I still feel the urge somedays to grab something to eat even though I’m not hungry.
