Lifting and froyo

It’s Thursday already and the week is almost over!  It has gone by fast.  I sure wish I didn’t have to work and waste all that time  😉

Last strength workout for the week and Stage B.

Exercise Set/rep/weight
1. Crunches on stability ball 3 sets of 10
2. Complex: High Pull, Front Squat/Push Press, Back Squat, Good Morning 4 sets of 8 each exercise with 20# bar
3A.  Deadlift 3 sets of 10 with 65# bar
3B. Dumbbell Overhead Press with rotation 3 sets of 10 with 10# DB
3C. Single Leg Squat 3 sets of 10
3D. Bent Over Row 30 sets of 10 45# bar

Only new move to me is the overhead dumbbell press with rotation. You basically rotate the same side of the body that is pressing up with the dumbbell. That’s a nice addition to that move.

This complex was a little different than workout A.  I actually hit myself in the chin with the bar doing the front squat/push press.  I remember now that I did that when I did NROLW, too.  Guess I never learned my lesson.

Again, this workout was really more metabolic and kept the heart rate up. I didn’t think it was possible for me to get sweatier lifting than I have been with this program, but I managed it.  😳

Breakfast upon return to home:

Protein waffles topped with a banana mashed up with maple syrup.  It may not look like a lot, but I had a 200 calorie protein drink already.  Plus, I was saving the other 2 waffles wedges for lunch.

So, there I guess is a time to do lunch!

I used my new sandwich press with the other 2 waffle wedges to make a chicken sausage sandwich.

I like having new toys 😀  I guess that shows how exciting my life is…  I was just saying to my mother last night that I was so happy that my life is pretty much drama free.  Either that or it is how I react to stuff that keeps it fairly drama free.

Also, having an afternoon latte is also a good way to stay on an even keel.

Ran a bit late with work today and I was  a little cranky for dinner.  That meant something fast! Omelet time.

I diced up the potato and microwaved it for a few minutes before tossing it in the pan to brown up a bit.  10 minute dinner.

Then I was happy again 😀

Such a beautiful evening that John and I took advantage of that for a Thursday night treat.  Riding for froyo!  Lots of choices.

I wanted the Baklava, but they were out. So, I ended up with cinnamon bun.

Refreshing, but not my favorite flavor.  Rum cheesecake or pistachio would probably be that.


One more day til the weekend!

    I love the unique froyo flavors. Baklava would have been my first pick too 🙂 It’s one of my favorite desserts!

    Everything looks yum 😀 Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

    Yum on the froyo. And your coffee is making me want more coffee even though its a little late for it. I guess I’ll have to break out the decaf!

    We have a few ice cream places – the sort where you really only want to go a couple times a summer maybe because the ice cream is so delicious due to a very high butterfat content. I wish we could have just ONE frozen yogurt place around here. Just one. Is that too much to ask?

    I like how you ride for your treats Lori! I like new kitchen toys as well, it keeps things exciting and different.Variety is the spice of life they say.

    My Cusinart Coffee maker just died – I didn’t like the coffee it made anyway but now I am on the hunt for a replacement. I know you are a coffee purist – what kind of coffee maker do you use?

    I love your blog. It gives me ideas of good healthy meals to eat on my journey to weight loss, too. By the way, we enjoyed our family vacation up there the other week. Our family went to Lake George, climbed Hurricane Mountain, drove around in Vermont, and did a lot of fishing at our rental home. Does your husband work at home, too?

      Hope you had good weather! It’s been rainy lately. My husband does work at home as well, but not the same job as I have.

        That’s interesting. I did medical transcription for over 20 years, so I can relate to some of the things you mention.
