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.
|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! 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
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!). Have a great weekend and I will have pics of the camp on Sunday!
