Lifting and lazy.

Monday and time for lifting!

It was pretty chatty at the gym today. 4 people asked me if I was missing riding my bike. LOL. That’s cause I drove this morning. I didn’t want to have to unhook the bike again and lug it down the stairs <—- lazy.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Barbell Squat 1 set of 10 at 45#

1 set of 10 at 65#

1 set of 8 at 75#

1 set of 8 at 85#

1 set of 6 at 95#

Lower body
Dumbbell Pull Over 3 sets of 10 at 25# Back

Horizontal Wood Chop 3 sets of 10 (each side) at 30# Core
Calf raises 3 sets of 10 at 140# Calves
Face Pulls 3 sets of 12 at 30# Shoulders
Single Leg deadlift 3 sets of 10 each leg with 15# DBs (30# total) Hammies and balance
Triceps Pull Down 3 sets of 15 at 30# Triceps
Lower Back Extension 3 sets of 10 at 100# Low back

Nice, eh? Felt pretty good. I did pushups for the first time in a few weeks. I can’t quite go all the way down, but better than not doing them at all. Not that I don’t love the chest presses, but I was tired of just being able to do those. Pain in the shoulder is just mostly soreness now – yippee!

Came home craving the pumpkin! I made pumpkin custard oats today:

Topped with crystallized ginger and pecans. You will be seeing pumpkin a lot this week as we have a bunch to use up.

Have a busy week going on with the 2 jobs and I have a large soap order to make.  I am thinking I might start up the soap biz again, but I am still trying to talk myself out of that a little bit.

Lunch time included egg salad!  I haven’t had this in a while.

Normally people open up and stuff pitas.  I just folded the whole thing over my egg salad.  Again <—– lazy.  (And is that sandwich grinning at me??)

No files for job #2 as the doctors had meetings all morning.  We never know when this is going to happen until there is no work.   It then gets all batched over at night, so guess what I will be doing later? :mrgreen:   That meant some soapmaking happened during the afternoon.  Gotta be flexible if need be.

Peppermint, Citrus, and Sandalwood

The house smells quite good right now.

John brewed up some lattes for us when I finished, which I paired with a couple dark mint cups.

While waiting for more work, I decided to hop on the bike trainer for 45 minutes.  I am going to seriously love that this winter.  We don’t have a treadmill, so it is a nice way to get in quick cardio.  Happy purchaser!

The day has flown by and it was time to fix dinner.  Can I advise you not to buy a product?  These are evil!

John had these down while I was cooking dinner.  See my nice fresh salad bowl there by the picture?  Guess which I was eating? These chocolate PB bugles are ah-mazing.  Can’t be bringing these into the house very often (damn coupon).  Do you ever taste something and know immediately it will be a red light food?

I didn’t eat a ton, and thank goodness John put that back up out of reach!

Then dinner was ready.  I took a picture on our bamboo cutting board for some different background:

BBQ chicken salad.   Used up the last of the BBQ sauce, so I guess I will only have this once this week. 😀

I have a couple of hours of work ahead of me tonight, so I have my snack next to me ready to eat when I get hungry:

Hello Mr. Bartlett!  I may cut this up and put cinnamon on it if I feel like getting up from work <—– lazy.

    Hey, you’re known as the biker chick! Cool!!! Glad the bike trainer is working out for you.

    Those soaps look so pretty! Love the swirly one!

    You’re right, definitely not going there with the PB&C Bugles. Minty stuff is good, I like that it doesn’t seem as triggery as other things. (Like PB&C.)

    “And is that sandwich grinning at me??” <- This + photo made me nearly spit cauliflower all over my keyboard! 😀

    I don’t like regular Bugles so I’m just going to tell myself that the chocolate-pb (my 2 fav-flavs) would taste just as nasty to me. Who knows, someday I might even believe it. 🙂

    And yes, that sandwich is definitely grinning.

    Those bugles do look evil. LOL! I’d have to move them right out the front door!

    Maybe you could drop one of your computer jobs and make soap??? That is if you really enjoy it. Life to short to not have fun! Hugs! deb

    I had no idea there were sweet bugles–only knew about the savory ones! Ya learn something new every day. Anyway, I am so lazy in the same aspects you talked about. It’s all good!

    You’re not lazy, you’re just efficient. No extra movement necessary lol. That pear looks magnificent! Don’t you just love pears. In fact, I had half a one for dessert tonight–just realized it was because I read your blog earlier.

    Yahoo for push-ups!!!!!

    I so remember bugles from when I was a kid! I liked them but not loved them but YES, I do taste food sometimes & know right away that it is something that is not coming in the house! Red flag as you call it! 🙂

    Your food looks so pretty! I put pics on my blog today & mentioned that sure are not as pretty as yours! 🙂

    Bugles — a blast from the past! That’s a definite red light food for me. I lack your restraint, so I couldn’t even have it in the house, I’m sure. Your soap looks great — how did you learn to make it?

      I learned back in the early 90s from a book and then played around with recipes until I came up with one I liked.

      I make the soap the cold process method (lye and oils). I do have to insulate a little more in cold weather, but my wooden molds are pretty thick.

      LOL – there are a billion things I am not good at, but I love to try making my own stuff. It’s not always successful, but usually fun.

    So if you’re lazy, what makes that of me? 😆 Crazy girl, you’re not lazy at all!

    I never like bugles (I have other addictions 🙂 )

    Okay I will come over and make that soup for you but only if you take me out to eat cupcakes for dessert. Deal?

  9. Susan

    Haha, I think you and I have identical snacking issues Lori. I will definitely NOT buy those Bugles 😉 Sometimes one of the great things about being single is that I don’t have a hungry boy to bring danger food into the house!
