I was ready to hit the gym this morning after having Mexican last night. I had a protein drink and then headed out in the dark. I am so glad the days are going to be getting longer from now on, aren’t you?
I ran 1 mile on the treadmill to warm up, then lifted.
|Barbell Stiff-legged deadlifts||3 set of 10 at 75#||Lower body|
|Cable Low row||3 sets of 10 at 60#||Back|
|Barbell Bench Press||1 sets of 10 at 60#
2 sets of 8 at 60#
|Decline Situps||3 sets of 10||Core|
|Pliet Squat||3 sets of 10 with 40# DB||Lower Body|
|Bench Dips||3 sets of 10||Triceps|
|YTWL||3 sets of 4 (each letter) with 8# DBs||Shoulders|
|Low Back Extension||3 sets of 10 at 100#||Low back|
I then did 2 more miles of running on the treadmill. Legs were a little tired from the lifting, but I made it. 😀 I picked John up (snarfed a cookie)
and we headed out for bagels – only the cafe ran out of bagels except for the everything bagel (aka the bad-breath bagel). I don’t like those, so I had a cranberry muffin instead.
I think that really set my day up wrong. I just don’t eat muffins or sweet stuff like that for breakfast anymore. I got very snacky today. I munched on some granola when I got home because I felt like I was missing something. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
The day was cold and cloudy, which kind of contributed to the blahness of the day. (new word alert). It made deciding on lunch difficult as well. One of those days where nothing appeals. I decided to make scrambled eggs and stuff them in a pita with a Morningstar sausage patty and laughing cow.
It turned out pretty good, I have to say.
John commented on me having 3 clementines and I told him that I *always* eat 3. Always – no more, no less, unless we run out. Guess he learned something new today about me, although I don’t know where he has been for the last 14+ years…
I really am trying to pinpoint where the blah is coming from, and I think it is just me being tired and some tough dictations at work today. And then wearing sweats today. I wanted to be comfie, but I forget that wearing sweats can just make one feel ‘fluffy’. Or is that just me?
I had a Blueberry Bliss Luna Bar before my latte.
These are good. They remind me of blueberry poptarts. Not that have ever eaten a poptart or anything, mind you. It’s just how I imagine it would taste :cough cough:.
John went to the smokehouse and picked up the roast for Christmas eve dinner. We are hosting the family shindig and cooking up a pot roast for something different. We love having dinner guests! It’s a chance to really cook and enjoy.
Speaking of dinner, I felt like eating a giant salad to refresh.
Of course, topped with BBQ chicken that John just cooked up, feta cheese, and toasted almonds.
It really never gets old.
I am going to unplug for most of the night, have a cup of CS Sugar Cookie Sleighride tea, and listen to Christmas carols. That’s sounds pretty good right about now!
Question: Are you hosting a holiday meal or just attending?
