Yay – my Broncos won last night and looked pretty good! Can’t wait for the real season to start. I biked to the gym today, where I decided on lifting only for a cardio break.
Operation endurance is still going:
|Barbell squats||3 sets of 10 with 45# bar||Lower body|
|Dumbbell pullover||3 set of 12 with 20# DB||Back|
|Chin ups||2 sets 2||Upper body|
|Decline sit ups||3 sets of 12||Core|
|1-leg deadlifts||3 sets of 12 with 15# DBs (30# total)||Hammies and balance|
|Seated calf raise||3 sets of 10 at 110#||Calves|
|Push ups||3 sets of 10||Chest|
|Lower Back extension||3 sets of 12 at 80#||Low back|
|Front Raise||3 sets of 12 with 5# DBs (10# total)||Shoulders|
|Cable pull down||3 sets of 15 at 30#||Triceps|
I tried chins again for the first time in a few months. I lost some strength there, which is annoying. I stopped doing them because I didn’t want to concentrate to much on them, plus I was getting a little bored doing them each workout. Then lookie what happens 😀
Quick bike home. It’s going to be a hot one today! Not humid, though, which is always good in my book.
Are you tired of the oats yet? I have really been on a super kick lately. This blog should be called finding oats and broccoli…. (which ought to bring in a lot of readers).
This is the size banana that I use for my banana custard oats (I know there is a joke in there somewhere).
I don’t like using half a banana, so we just find the smallest ones possible.
I cannot tell you how great it feels to be back down to a single job’s worth of hours. Yay! I’ll have my new bike paid off next week, so that is a good thing. I might just keep the 2 jobs as part time instead of moving to 1 only, as I am afraid that there won’t be enough work with one company (it’s feast or famine in my industry). Plus job #1 has eased up a little on the constant berating of employees – or a lot of them left at any rate. I’ll just play it by ear.
Lunchtime involved something different. I made a protein crepe using egg white protein powder. I am not that fond of it, but we must use it up.
- 15 grams of egg white protein
- 1 whole egg
- 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp of whole wheat flour
Whizzed up in the magic bullet and cooked in a skillet. Filled with blueberry sauce and a dollop of vanilla greek yogurt.
This was tasty, but a little on the tough side, thanks to the egg white protein. I have tried this with brown rice PP and kind of had the same result. I need to try it with whey and see what happens. Definitely in the keeper file, though.
I now have the donate button for my charity ride if anyone wants to use it in the sidebar (or below). 😀 I’ll be getting the recipe book out to people this week. It’s about a 50 page booklet!
I am getting excited about the ride. I just need to find out what the course is like. I imagine hilly because it is in the Adirondacks, but I am prepared for that. I did 100 miles this summer, so I know I can do 62 with hills. The only thing I won’t be prepared for is rain. The ride is rain or shine, so I am going to have to suck it up and ride if it is bad weather LOL!
Snack time included one of these:
Plus some of this:
I am starting to have cereal snack issues again, so this box is going to go up high tonight.
Finished up with work by dinner time, which is so awesome! It’s so great to know I don’t have to log back in after dinner and do more. It’s also great to see a man cooking:
Although, truth be told he was cooking some shrimp for himself LOL!
I had a baked crab cake and finally some red pear! They are back around now. Red pears are my favorite.
Now I have a whole evening with no work to do, but a lot of other things to do.
