October goals and off to camp!

Gonna get just a partial post in here today because I am off for the weekend to go camping!
Still pouring rain when I was up at 6:15 (d’oh! – gotta go to sleep earlier). I headed out to the gym to get in a quick strength workout. No real cardio today as I have been pushing that this week with the bricks. It was weird being at the gym in the dark.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Barbell Squat 4 sets of 10 at 45# Lower body
Bent Over Dumbbell Row 3 sets of 10 with 20# DBs (40# total) Back
Barbell Chest Press 4 sets of 8 at 55# Chest
Walking Lunges 3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 15# DBs (30# total) Lower body
Captain’s Chair 3 sets of 10 Core
Good Mornings 3 sets of 10 at 45# Lower Back and Hammies
Upright Row 3 sets of 10 with 25# bar Shoulders
Dumbbell Kickback 3 sets of 15 with 15# DBs (30# total) Triceps

Note I did some extra sets. I also did a giant set with the last 3 exercises, where I went through one of each without stopping, then rested a minute and repeated. I was sweating!Β  And I tell you – I am already feeling those walking lunges – eep!

Home for some pumpkin cream of wheat – topped with a little cream cheese/powdered sugar mix, ginger, and 5 crumbled pecans.

Dang this was a good bowl.

Scrambling to get work done (yay for 1/2 days!) and pack for the camping trip this weekend. I am going with my sister and 2 nieces to a camp and pack weekend.  There is no power in the cabins, so I will be sans internet for the weekend.  Yay? 😯

October 1! My goals for October are as follows (some of these coincide with the Hot 100 Challenge):

  • One no sugar day a week.
  • Get the scale back below red line as it crept up in Sept.
  • Hopefully do the duathlon with a goal to beat 1:55
  • Work on the side garden bed.
  • Run the goblin gallop 5K
  • Post a photo of something pink each day to raise awareness of breast cancer (see bottom of post)

That ought to keep me semi out of trouble for the month :mrgreen:

Lunch time was some leftovers –

Here is the month’s first pink picture!

Not super pink, but close enough. these are coming on the camping trip with me (along with some candy corn!)

John is going to drop me off at my sister’s house now and have a bachelor weekend with Pixie (haha!).Β  Have a great weekend and I will have pics of the camp on Sunday!

    Great goals Lori!!!! You always have some good ones!

    Love the idea of a pic with pink each day!!!! National Breast Cancer Awareness month! Tomorrow is LIVESTRONG day too so wear yellow if you have it up there in nowheres land! No way I could do camping or no power! Some very BAD experiences from my youth so in my adult life, it is all about hotel rooms with running power, showers, toilets & such! I will hike but not camp! HAVE FUN & I guess a good way to force you to unplug! πŸ˜‰

    Good workout too! I love me that non stop weight workout! πŸ™‚

    gosh I am DYING to take my kids camping.It’s been years!

    and that cream of wheat bowl of heaven!!!
    I made cream of wheat the other night, late…cuz I had to have it, but it was plain.
    I am glad you explained your timing on your brick to me! I have at most 50-55 minutes for my lunch work out and one, I was WIPED at 45 today and two I could never get the mileage in at that time; I was a tad relieved to see it added up to more than a lunch hour!

    but GOOD FOR YOU. That is brutal!
    I’m gonna keep at it !
    have a totally great weekend!
