I dropped the weight on the squats and increased the reps today just for something different. I did have thoughts of doing running this morning, but just didn’t feel it today. I had to laugh as 2 guys that were in the gym with me said “Lori has done more since she got here than we did all morning!”. (small gym and the regulars know names) It’s so true. I come in and get stuff done while others stand around and chit chat. I do talk some, but I have more important things to attend to, like breakfast:
Almond Joy Oats! Warm and comforting on a very cold morning.
Marisa had asked me question about lifting via Facebook this morning, and I thought I might do a post or series of them on lifting. So, I am looking for any questions you might have. Marisa had posed the one about how to design a workout. Please note that I am not a professional, but I will give you the information I have studied, along with my opinions so you can make up your minds. I think this could be a fun series, don’t you? Please leave a comment if you have a question.
I did work this morning until lunchtime. Then I wanted a comfort sammie of PB &J
This tasted so good to me. Not sure why, but I’ll take it. I like the Teddie’s PB, too.
Latte time rolled around and I decided to spice things up:
It is Friday after all. Grasshopper latte anyone?
Since the regular football season has ended, John and I have been doing fantasy football stuff to do our weekly picks, as just picking the winners like we usually doesn’t work so well when there are only 4 games to choose from. I don’t know diddly about fantasy football, but nfl.com makes it easy to choose players and they figure out all the points and stuff. The good news? I won last week! The nice thing about fantasy is that even if a team loses, an individual player on that team can do well and give you points. Such as it was for me and Drew Brees. So sorry to see you go, Drew. No langniappe for the Saints this year.
The taste of victory? A pizza wrap!
Gooey cheese on a whole wheat wrap. With a side salad for balance:
Amazing how simple foods can taste so good! That kind of summed up all my food today 😀
There is work to do tonight, so I must have at it. My schedule is all whackadoodle now with the other job. I guess I just have to refer to that as just my job instead of job #2. I’ve called it that so long that it is habit now. Regardless, I am thankful that I have it.
Post any lifting Qs you would like and I will get researching!
