It’s Friday and you know what that means! What’s blooming! But first, the daily stuff. I proteined up and biked to the gym. I know a lot of you are in a heat wave, but it was in the upper 50s biking there this morning 😯
Warmed up with 1 mile on the treadmill and then set to lifting.
|Barbell dead lifts||3 sets of 10 with 65# bar||Lower body|
|Barbell Incline Chest Press||3 set of 10 with 45# bar||Chest|
|Wide grip pulldown||3 sets of 10 at 50#||Back|
|Reverse Crunches||3 sets of 15||Core|
|Good Mornings||3 sets of 12 with 35# bar||Lower back and hammies|
|Stationary Lunge||3 sets of 10 holding a 25# plate||Lower body|
|Upright row||3 sets of 10 with 30# bar||Shoulders|
|Bench Dips||3 sets of 10||Triceps|
Then I hopped onto the treadmill for another mile. I was super sweaty today as the AC wasn’t on at the gym because it was chilly out and they had the doors open. It felt good to bike home in the cool air.
I came home to a cute scene:
Pixie is a heat-seeking lap missile now that it is cooler in the mornings.
In honor of Banana Lovers Day, I had banana custard cream of wheat topped with peanut butter and fluff and joined John at the table (rare):
Deliciousness! Since today is pretty much just a half work day for me, I was able to relax some in the morning. I don’t have a set start time with job 2, so no rush to log in. I wrote that book review (click here for review and giveaway) and then worked.
Lunch break. Egg sammie.
I am not afraid to eat eggs. I do like runny yolks, but most times I cook thoroughly. Plus we buy locally produced eggs, so I worry less.
Nice stuff in the garden right now.
Buddha being all peaceful with the clematis:
This is the white Liriope in it’s neat little mounds:
And a little dahlia:
Came back in and did more work. John made me a latte 😀
And I pulled out a mighty awesome looking loaf of bread out of the oven!
I said I wanted to just pick it up and take a huge bite out of it. John suggested I could slice it instead, but where’s the fun in that??
Finished up work and I almost don’t know what to do with myself. Since John cooked up a bunch of chicken, you know I had to have a salad for dinner!
Funny how there was no real urge to snack or anything today. It seems like yesterday just filled whatever needs my body had. I think sometimes we concentrate on staying in a specific calorie range and the body just pushes back against that at times because it actually has different needs than an assumed calorie count each day.
You know the evening snack includes some of that bread.
Best loaf to date, I think. It’s a wheat challah bread. I just didn’t braid it (lazy).
Tomorrow is a long ride. Going to shoot for 50 miles. A very nice day on tap, so hopefully it will happen. Likely frozen yogurt tomorrow!
Question: Are you eating eggs right now?
