Friday eats.

Yay the weekend!  We also are getting some warmer temperatures as well. I think we will be in the low 40s on Saturday.  Heat wave!  🙄  I am noticing the days getting longer.  Lighter a little later and not so dark on my way to the gym this morning.

I got my butt up and went today since I didn’t yesterday. Not terribly crowded. I think I found the sweet spot time, which is 7 am.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Squats 3 sets of 12 with 45# bar Lower Body
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown 3 sets of 12 at 40# Back
Bench Press 3 sets of 10 with 50# bar Chest
Decline Sit Ups 3 sets of 10 Core
Good Mornings 3 sets of 12 with 50# bar Hammies and low back
Upright Row 3 sets of 12 with 10# DBs Shoulder
Kickbacks 3 sets of 12 at 10# DBs Triceps

I did these as supersets to work up more of a sweat since I have lightened up the weights.  I burned through my pre-workout protein quaff pretty quick.

I came home to make the 5-minute flax waffle with blueberries.

I tried to eat this slow, but breakfast is one of those things I tend to wolf down because I am hungry.  Even when I have something pre-workout.

I cheered on the Broncos with my mug:

I have a feeling it is going to be an ugly game this weekend…

I had a hard time getting started with work today.  Friday-itis big time. There was a lot to do, though, so that helped.  I had my lap girl with me.

This is how she crams herself onto my lap since I have the laptop on there as well.  You wouldn’t think that was comfortable, but she will stay there the entire time I am working until I move her.  At least she is warm  😀

John made up some clam chowder last night, so that was on the menu for lunch. He uses this recipe, but subbed milk for cream:

Of course, I added a few dashes of hot sauce!  Delicious. Thanks John!

So, this weekend will be my first real challenge.  Normally I am pretty relaxed eating wise on weekends.  Like a lot of us, I guess.  I have my 90/10 plan in place.  I get 3.5 meals/snacks to have fun with and I used one up on Wednesday.  I know I am having a pizza wrap tomorrow as my winning football dinner and then Sunday morning is the typical bagel day (the original Bagel Day).  That leaves 1 snack to think about, probably a cookie with a latte or something.  I know I can not nibble my way through the weekend if I put my mind to it.  Wish me luck.

John made up lattes as well.  I love a man who cooks and makes me coffee.  Yep, I am lucky!

We don’t always eat the same foods, but we always have a latte in the afternoon in the winter.

Dinner tonight?  An omelet with some sausage cooked in.  We found our grocery store carries some local meats and this sausage was made in Saratoga and is really, really good.  It’s actually surprisingly lean, too.

I spread it with a Laughing Cow wedge.  This was really good, too.  Might have to make some sausage gravy, which I haven’t had in eons!

We are going to have a relaxing night tonight.  I have these set out for a snack:

Funny, I did not use flash for this picture (I never do for food shots), but it sure looks like I did.  It’s the overhead light in the kitchen that did that.

Anyway, that will be paired with some decaf coffee tonight.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    I had Fridayitis right along with you Lori. Super nice that you have a man who cooks and brings coffee. No wonder you like working from home 😉

    I also want to not overdo it this weekend as it feels like it took me all week to even feel like I was getting a grip. I’ll be cheering for your success (and mine) from here!

    Good luck with the healthy eating! You’re smart to plan out what your fun meals will be ahead of time so you can look forward to those and perhaps not indulge too much elsewhere. Weekends are hard to stay on track!

    See – I sent the heatwave to you. 🙂

    I just love that he cooks for you and makes a nice looking latte too. Love the eats!

    Weekends are tough. If I don’t leave the house at all it’s not so bad but what fun is that? 😉

    Have a great weekend!

    Wishing you good luck on your weekend eating. Yep, you got a winner. I could use your lap warmer just now. We’re having our last energy efficient window installed today and altho it’s supposed to warm up nicely later in the day, it’s cold just now with a huge hole in the living room wall.

    I love Pixie. She lookes so feline.

    I checked the book you recommended. You meant Savor by Thich Nhat Hanh, not Savor Me Slowly (Alien Huntress Novel)? 🙂

    I’m not completely back at my healthy eating that I had before the holidays started but I’m getting there. Have a birthday party tomorrow so this weekend I’m trying to control the “damage” and on Monday I’m getting serious about all my meals again.

    Wow, first I didn’t see this post friday, then I almost forgot to comment, then I wrote a long comment, and the page disappeared!

    Anyway, I think I said: One way you and I are NOt alike: YOu will never see the words 7am and gym in the same sentence on my blog LOL.

    And, I love that dried pineapple. And I love doing supersets at the gym, mostly to save time.
