It was so humid today that we were all sweating at the gym. I was thinking how sweaty I was feeling and then somebody else mentioned it, too LOL!

I came home and made some protein waffles topped with apple cranberry topping.

Looks good, no?  Oui!

Lifting Move of the Week: The Deadlift Row Combo!
Have I done this one recently? I can’t remember LOL!  I have talked about this move before while I was doing NROLW, but kind of forgot about doing it and just started bringing it back into my routine. Now I remember why it is one of my favorites! It’s a whole body exercise. What you do is basically a stiff-legged deadlift and instead of standing back up again, do a row with the weights and then stand up.

You can use a bar or dumbbells for this. When pulling the weight up for the row, be careful not to pull too high up towards your chest or you will activate your shoulders instead of your back. We don’t want any injuries 😀

Good stuff.

I made bread yesterday, so I wanted to have that with lunch.  I decided to make a pressed sandwich with the waffle iron.  Good for so much more than waffles!  Did you know that you can cook bacon in a waffle iron?  It’s true!

This was cooked chicken, laughing cow, and a bit of blueberry jam.  Very tasty.  I think I could have let the sandwich get toastier, but it was nice and warm.

The pink item of the day is for Jody and Ish.  Pink nose!

Very productive day at work.  Actually it has been a very productive week so far (I just typed ‘fat’ – Freudian slip?).  Break time was a protein latte and a Luna bar.  Oatmeal Raisin
I do like the Luna Bars.
It was so warm again this afternoon.  In the 60s!  I was able to go out before dinner and work on the new side garden bed.  One of my goals this month was to get that 10 foot section tilled and removed of grass, which I finished up today.  That’s some good exercise.  I also will have some blooming photos on Friday, if you can believe it!
More chicken for dinner.  This was an apple chicken sausage from the smokehouse.  Too bad we didn’t have any buns.  I like these a lot.
I can’t believe how dark it gets early now.  It feels so much later.  And of course it will only get worse next week after DST clock change.   It’s Halloween week, so we were watching some TV after dinner:
Snack of some dried fruit.  We had a coupon for this brand
Dang these are good!
I am not particular with too many brands.   Usually store brands are fine with me on most stuff, and even with coupons it can still be cheaper to get store brands versus name brand.  However, I am willing to try anything with a coupon pretty much.  I will say this is good… really good!
Question:  Are you a coupon clipper?

    I am always puzzled when I miss one of your posts. I think it happens when I am working and you do two posts in one day. It can’t be because I am getting old and absentminded.

    I think that is the same brand that has the dried mango slices that they sell at Costco that are like crack. I can eat those until I am sick to my stomach!

    Oh, that is a good move. I will have to practice it here at home to cement it in my memory because (see first paragraph…)

    I didn’t know you had Summer and Winter time too. Here the clock is going an hour backwards Saturday night and it will be dark earlier at night.

    If we press bread in the waffle iron it’s called a “tosti”

    Here in Holland we don’t have coupons. We got leaflets from the stores in the mailbox with the things that are on sale (can’t think of the right word right now) that week.

    Ted was looking out the window last night saying how depressed he’s getting because it gets dard WAY too early. Course he said it with a smile…Ted doesn’t get depressed. Lucky Dude!

    I just love that Pixie. I think she likes having her face on the www. She’s a star 🙂

    As for coupons, I love to clip them then I forget to take them with me to the store. Oh well…it’s the thought, right?!

    you can cook bacon in the waffle maker? did not know that!

    and did not ever think to use one as a panini maker too. YIPEE…know what I am doing soon!!!!
    actually our Costco sells that brand of dried fruit and it’s always super good! good for you!
    Plus I bought apple chicken links this week. (mine are probably not as good as yours) but I like them nonetheless. and YAY for a productive week. always feels good.

    Love Pixie’s pink little nose! 🙂

    Sadly I clip coupons and then leave them at home and end up buying stuff at the full price. I need a coupon book for my purse.

    You know, I thought I had done deadlift rows before, but I hadn’t…usually combos in BodyPump involving deadlifts, then rows, then more deadlifts, then some more rows. (And never with that much weight – whew! You go, girl!!!)

    I have got to try the waffle iron panini idea sometime. I do love a toasty sandwich!

    I am absolutely a coupon clipper. I love to see the percent savings at the bottom of my receipt.

    That sandwich looks awesome. I love sweet jam paired with proteins. And that sausage looks awesome too!
