Another Monday has rolled around again. I headed out to the gym. I was all alone in the free weight section for about 15 minutes, which I love. Looks like I am bathing in a pile of iron!

I was working hard and got sweaty with this routine. I made sure I moved fast between exercises and rested for a minute max between sets. This routine took me 40 minutes.
Off to home and some protein waffles!
I have missed my blueberries recently. I was on a real oat kick last week and I don’t think I had any blueberries!
So speaking of sweaty workouts, I was contacted by Febreeze to see if I wanted to put their professional strength Laundry Odor Eliminator to the test.
Guess they read about how much I sweat LOL. I will admit that even after washing, my workout clothes always have a bit of an undertone to them, for lack of a better word. I tried other sports detergents and they didn’t really seem to help. So, I was game since I like the regular Febreeze stuff. Pile o’ stanky workout clothes:
This is an additive to your laundry, so you add it along with your regular detergent. Since this was a laundry load of just my workout clothes from the week, I used the 1/2 cup recommended for heavy odors 😳 . It has a very light fragrance to it, not as strong as a laundry detergent.
I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised at how well this worked! My workout clothes smell fresh and clean now and like my regular detergent, only fresher, even upon close inspection! The only downfall to this is the cost. This bottle was about $9.50 for 1-1/2 quarts, so it is something that I would only use for workout clothing and not for everyday laundry use.
The Febreeze people have offered 1 coupon for a free bottle of the Laundry Odor Eliminator to 2 of my readers. All you need to do is comment below with your worst laundry problem and I will use random.org to choose 2 people to receive the coupons. Entry deadline will be Wednesday afternoon 12/24 at 5:00 pm EST. So have at it!
Lunchtime was the rest of the chili I made last night. Could it be possible that it was even better today? I think so!
There wasn’t much left, though. Served with some bread John made with Laughing Cow (I wish that was buttah on there!).
Afternoon break was the usual:
plus some snacking:
I am really, really hungry today. What is up with that? Not just snacky, but hungry. So then I had more grapes. Doing a no-added sugar day and I really wanted something chocolatey. Not sure why both last week *and* this week’s NS days were so hard. It’s not like I eat a ton of sugared things normally, either. Not liking that part of my Hot 100 challenge any more (says inner 5 year old).
One job finished for the day, and the other job forgot to upload important documents with the files, so they can’t get done. Maybe someone will do it later, but the clinics have closed, so I doubt it.
Tonight my Broncos take on the Chargers! I get to watch the game because it is MNF! Come on Broncos, don’t lay an egg!
