Hello!! Another day, another dollar 😀 I headed on out to the gym. I wanted a lighter day today, so I just biked to the gym and did some weights:
|Barbell deadlifts||3 sets of 8 at 80#||Lower body|
|Seated lat row||3 sets of 10 at 60#||Back|
|Dumbbell Incline Bench Press||3 sets of 10 with 20# DBs (40# total)||Chest|
|Decline sit ups||3 sets of 10||Abs|
|Alternating side lunge||3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 15# DBs (30# total)||Legs|
|Seated Calf Raise||3 sets with 10 at 110#||Calves|
|Arnold Press||3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs (30# total)||Shoulders|
|Bench Dips||3 sets of 10||Triceps|
|Good Mornings||3 sets of 10 at 55#||Lower back and hammies|
Then I walked for 10 minutes on the treadmill to cool down before biking home. I actually did not have a preworkout snack today as I felt absolutely no hunger at all when I got up. I ate a bit too much yesterday, and it seemed to hold over. Anyway, I was hungry for breakfast, though! One of my new bowls I got yesterday:
John says “Another bowl?” 😳
I had banana custard cream of wheat topped with cashew butter and beer jelly.
My bowl almost isn’t big enough LOL!
So, I have decided to put my mouth where my pedals are. I signed up for the Camp Challenge ride in September.
I will be riding the Metric Century ride (62.5 miles) on September 12 and raising funds to support the Double H ranch in Lake Luzerne. The Double H ranch is dedicated to providing services to children who have life threatening illnesses and their families. The Camp Challenge ride is to raise funds to send these children to the camp for free. My goal is to raise $250. This is the first time I have ever done a fundraising type of thing, so I have a lot of work to do! If you would like to support me with a donation, you can do so here. If half of my readers donated $1 – we would be pretty close! As I alluded to yesterday, I will be working on a cookbook of all my recipes that I have done on the site and will be giving a copy of this to anyone who donates (when it is finished). Or, you can support by passing my link on to anyone you know who might be interested in this. FYI – there are 3 of these rides on that day, so anyone who lives near Lake Luzerne; Ashford, CT, or Lake Hughes, CA can do a ride as well! (15, 30, or 62.5 miles). You can email me if you have any questions at all.
I am pretty excited about it!!
Lunch break included some tuna salad and lime FSTG chips. I do like these. That pear I had yesterday was under ripe – so I need to give the others a chance to ripen up! Strawberries it is 😀
Pixie is ready to open a can of whoopass on a kitty outside while I am preparing my food.
Break time! John made me a latte with some protein in it and I had a snack of dark chocolate.
Work was slow at first, but then picked up and I finished up both jobs. I may (or not) do more work tonight to make up for yesterday.
I do need to do a wee bit more shopping for Mr. J – as his birthday is Wednesday and I need stocking stuffers for him. Not that he gets a stocking for his birthday….
Needed something fast for dinner because I was hangry and really wanted to snack. So it was baked clam strips and brussels.
This plate was really colorful and pleasing to my eyes. Being mindful of not just the taste of the food, but noticing how it looks and appreciating that .
Made a stop at the library to get something to read. I actually got several things, but this was fiction:
I kind of like historical fiction. This book is about Eleanor, the granddaughter of King Edward I. Hope it’s good!
Gonna make a snack and decide whether I am going to work or read… hmmmm… wonder which I will choose….
