Weekend time! Sort of. I still need to do job #2, but whose counting at this point?
I was looking forward to a calorie busting workout today and I got one. I had a piece of yummy toast and jam prior to leaving.
Then I biked to the gym and hit the iron:
|Cable squat to row||3 sets of 10 at 60#||Full body|
|Stiff leg deadlift||3 sets of 10 at 75#||Lower body|
|Barbell chest press||3 sets of 10 with 55# bar||Chest|
|Dumbbell pullover||3 sets of 10 25# DB||Back|
|Captain’s chair||3 sets of 10||Abs|
|Lower back extension||3 sets with 10 at 100#||Low back|
|Seated calf raise||3 sets of 10 at 110#||Calves|
|Ahnold Press||3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs (30# total)||Shoulders|
Then I hopped on the treadmill and did 3 miles. I alternated the speed a little and progressively set it faster. I left it at 5.7 mph for the last mile. I was sweating buckets. I totally soaked my entire shirt above the waistband:
Cue Tom Jones “She’s a Lady” Fashion Friday here I come 😛
I felt so awesome when I was done. Then I biked home and proceeded to have a hot breakfast. 😕
I had soaked some steel cut oats overnight, so I made banana custard oats and topped them with toasted pecans and 1 tbsp of maple syrup.
What an awesome combo this was!! Why I have never done it before is beyond me. Maple must be a superfood, right?
Then I rushed to do some blueberry picking. Storms were rolling in by radar, so I hit the picking early. This is along the row I was picking in.
The acoustics in the blueberry patch are very odd. You can here someone talking and it sounds like they are the next row over, but then you see them far away. It is bizarre.
I so wish I could share the blueberries with all of you. They are so amazing and wonderful.
It was lunchtime when I got back. I made a quick wrap with scrambled eggs, laughing cow and hot sauce.
No fruit on this plate because I probably ate a cup of blueberries while picking and driving home.
Great blooms happening right now. Gazanias are popping out all over:
Ageratum have gotten big!
Potted geraniums and allysum
My blackeyed Susans are out of control. I did not plant any of these in the front. All volunteers. As they are along the walk way.
I am starting to lose the weed battle right now. With the heat and my schedule lately, I haven’t spent as much time weeding as I should. Must remedy that this weekend.
Love this pic:
Pixie just watched me take pictures today. Lazy..
Then I headed out for some birthday shopping for my BIL. Success! Starbies was in the next plaza over. So that meant I got to stop and relax with my netbook for a bit. I was actually quite hungry at this point.
Reduced fat berry coffee cake (320 cal), plus a cup of coffee on the side. Hot coffee because it was cold in here. Every place is cold around here inside.
After some relaxing and going over the paperwork on my new account with job #2, I headed home. Dinner was a yummy chicken breast with laughing cow, BBQ sauce and topped with caramelized onions. Tasty!
I’ll be doing a little more work later, but first is time for some fun:
John raised the question as to where Dopey comes from as he is the only dwarf under the age of 50?
Tomorrow is a long bike ride, and maybe a cupcake stop!
Question: Any exciting plans for the weekend?
