Heat wave! This northern girl doesn’t like such heat and humidity. Not to mention what it does to my hair! 😀 One nice thing about really hot weather? The gym is empty. Not sure why because going into the air conditioned gym this morning was like a little slice of heaven.
Today was lower reps and higher weights for this set.
|1. Crunches on stability ball||2 sets of 15|
|2. Complex: High Pull, Front Squat/Push Press, Back Squat, Good Morning||4 sets of 8 each exercise with 20# bar|
|3A. Deadlift||4 sets of 5 with 95# bar|
|3B. Dumbbell Overhead Press with rotation||4 sets of 5 with 20# DBs|
|3C. Single Leg Squat||4 sets of 5|
|3D. Bent Over Row||4 sets of 5 with 55# bar|
I would have set off the lunk alarm at Planet Fitness with the deadlifts by the 4th set. Good thing I don’t go there 😈
It was already quite warm when I got back. I made up cold-brewed coffee for today. It takes a little forethought, but soooooooo much better than brewing coffee and putting ice in it or saving old coffee in the fridge. The night before, take 1 cup of ground coffee and put it in a container with 4 cups of water.
Stick in the fridge overnight and then filter it the next day. A french press would be faster. This is the most time consuming part because you have to wait for coffee to filter through. This is just the basket from our Bunn on top of the carafe. It works pretty well.
Voila – beautiful and flavorful cold-brewed coffee (with milk)!
I had made up some banana custard oats as well and let them sit out to get to room temp. I know it sounds gross, but I didn’t want hot oats and overnight refrigerator oats aren’t my thing.
Pixie is hiding from the heat.
Poor girl. I almost have a mind to take her to the groomer and get her shaved for the summer, but I don’t know how she would handle it. Our AC downstairs does okay, but it really only gets down to about 77 degrees since we just have the one for the whole downstairs. I don’t know how you Gulf states people can handle it.
Loving the ground turkey again.
The day went pretty fast with work today. This whole week went fast. I took a break for an iced latte.
Hot or cold. Is there any way coffee is bad??
With the heat, I wanted a nice cool dinner. I had made up some blueberry topping and put it in a bowl with some Cascadian Farm Oh’s and greek yogurt.
This was awesome! Almost like a dessert 😀
We need to wait until the sun goes down before walking for a little ice cream tonight. First up will be a movie. Anyone remember the old Hobbit cartoon from the late 1970s?
Memories. It’s not a 70’s feature without the guitar playing folk singer!
Hope you all are staying cool.
