Healthy Heart Weekend is here!

It’s here!  The Healthy Heart Weekend!  You can still sign up through the weekend if you are just seeing this for the first time.  Send me your photos  to javaqueen01 (@) and what you did any time this weekend and I will do a round up post on Tuesday and pick the winners of the drawing.  I’ll be biking this weekend…indoors…

We’ve got to move it, move it!

Kicking off the Healthy Heart Weekend with this workout!

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked
Seated Cable Lat Row 3 sets of 10 at 50# Back
Dumbbell Incline Fly 3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs Chest
Dumbbell Squats 3 sets of 10 with 25# DBs (50# total) Lower Body
Reverse Crunch 3 sets of 15 Core
Stiff-legged Deadlift 3 sets of 10 with 25# DBs (50# total) Hammmies and low back
Bent Lateral Raise 3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs (20# total) Shoulders

I would have used the squat cage, but some guys had camped out in it. I didn’t want to work in because it would have been loading and unloading the barbell and I didn’t want to do that.  I walked some on the treadmill and then came home to breakfast.

Pumpkin oats topped with some creamed honey and toasted pecans.

Plus pour over coffee.  John is ordering the new coffee maker since I bought the espresso machine.  I hope it comes by next weekend for our Mardi Gras party!  Eeek!  😯

Busy work day today.  A new doctor was added on my account and I have to say that I love his voice!  That was a nice bonus today.

I was feeling the pumpkin love again for lunch today.  This is one of those times when I am eating what John calls my ‘weird food’.  This is a pumpkin protein shake made with just pumpkin, almond milk, cinnamon and unflavored protein powder.

I really like this shake, but most people probably wouldn’t because it is not sweet at all.  I just love the pumpkin flavor.  I realized that there wasn’t much fat in this meal, so I had some cashews with it.

For the Pixie lovers – she was being cute today.  Pixie is one of those weird cats that loves to have her tummy rubbed.  Most cats will go ballistic and scratch when you rub their tummies, but Pixie rolls right over when you come up to her.  She is very expectant here.

I don’t need my tummy rubbed, but I do like it filled with lattes!

I was so productive with work that I finished up early!  Yay for that on a Friday!  I even had my guitar practice done before dinner.  Sweet.  I had turkey again.  Here I said how tired I was of it, but nothing else was thawed out and I didn’t feel like an omelet.  So, I cooked up the turkey with some taco seasonings and put it on a potato with some sour cream.  It was really good!

Tonight is relaxing night.  I will ride the trainer for a little bit, but then have a quiet evening.  John is feeling a little better, but not enough to go paint the town red.

I will have a chocolate snack tonight as well.

This is really, really good, too.  Did I mention that Albany is getting a Trader Joe’s?  Now I will only have to drive an hour to pick up stuff.  They are supposed to open in late spring of this year.  Hopefully it really will be that soon.

Have a great Healthy Heart Weekend!

    What can I say–Pixie is adorable–and smart too, because she knows when she needs her tummy rubbed. Lots of cats don’t, and that’s their loss. Good for you on getting a TJ’s closer to home. We got ours about a year ago, and it has made life a lot easier! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Done the first part of my triathalon! Yoga tonight and I even remembered to bring my camera…a nice lady helped out by taking my picture as The Boss had to go feed the meter.

    Glad John is on the mend and I hope your coffee maker arrives in time for the party!

    Cute picture of Pixie!

    Mm, I’m thinking about postponing Heart Healthy Feat until Sunday. Bad idea? 🙂

    Pixie is super cute and adorable (and a very rare cat). If I had a computer-operated hand I could use from Finland, I could rub her on your behalf when you’re busy! 🙂

    I’m thinking that it’s a “good thing” I don’t live near a TJ or a WF! My grocery budget couldn’t take it!

    I did my heart-y workout and posted about it today. I’m heading off to email you now. 🙂

    We love “move it – move it” .. in fact, my son was looking over my shoulder just now and when he saw that picture he started singing the song. 😀

    Have a great weekend and thanks for inspiring us with the Healthy Heart Weekend again this year!!!

    Yeay, Healthy Heart Weekend! I did mine today – whew! (mop brow) Not outside, as I’d hoped, but I had fun with it. Will email you soon.

    And how cute is Pixie! My brother-in-law & sister-in-law had a cat named Benny that loved getting his belly rubbed, too. He was one of those cats that thought he was a dog. He’d even play fetch! Please give Pixie a belly rub from me and Thing 2, who just about burst my eardrums squeeeeing. 😉
