Happy Pi Day! 3/14. A celebration of the circle and its irrational number.
How about a circle for breakfast?
Bagel – showcasing pi with the diameter and circumference references! Learning – it’s what’s for breakfast.
Wednesday bagels are one of my 10% meals of the week. It was a gorgeous and sunny morning as well. So hard to sit my butt down and work. It’s also my really busy day, too. I did make a point to get some lunch before leaving for my literacy tutoring appointment. More circles!
This is 2% Fage topped with 1/2 cup of pumpkin, 1 teaspoon of honey and cinnamon. I thought it would be nice to photo it before mushing it all together. Good, but needed something crunchy on top like pecans. Too bad I had to eat this fast and not savor it.
After tutoring, back to work until latte time! More pi =
Fran had asked me about learning to do pushups. I now do straight military style pushups. (I hate calling them man pushups because women can do them, too). I used to do pushups on my knees, like girls were taught to do. The problem with this is that you can never learn to do them on your toes this way. What I did was to do incline pushups. I started leaning against a wall, then progressively dropped down the angle until I was straight on the floor. This gives your body time to build the upper body strength it needs to support the ‘real’ pushup stance. It’s too hard to just start in the pushup position and work from there because pushups on your toes are really an advanced exercise. They aren’t easy! Give yourself time to work down.
You can use anything for the support. A weight bench, a chair, a step stool. As the pushups get easier, lower the height of the object.
* My one piece of advice is to anchor the object that you will be pushing against so that it doesn’t slide away from you causing you to fall to the floor. Not that I have ever done that or anything. I just want to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, because it hurts – or I imagine it would hurt. Not that I know anything about that…
I ate dinner later because work was running out and I wanted to make sure I got as much as I could. Ah, the lovely part of working on production. I did a quick dinner of shrimp stir fry. This is 4 oz of shrimp with some sauteed broccoli, 1/2 cup of leftover rice and 1 tablespoon of Kikkoman ginger teriyaki sauce.
This was really yummy!
More working after dinner until files run out. Taking 2 hours out of my day for tutoring means adding them in at night. I am actually ahead for the week, so no big deal.
My mother is coming over tonight for a visit. Too bad I didn’t make any pi(e). We like to have pie on pi day, but just didn’t make any this year and too tired to go out tonight! Guess I will have to settle for nuts and dried pineapple.
Tomorrow is workout B of the Fit Female!
