I am trying to get myself into a gym routine still. I think I will do lifting T/Th and either Sat or Sun. I was up early and out the door this morning. The gym is only a couple miles from our new house, so it cuts down a lot of the time it took from our old place (which was 6 miles). I started a split body workout regimen today and it was all about the arms this morning.
|Dumbbell Shoulder Press||4 sets of 10|
|Upright Row||3 sets of 10|
|Bent Lateral Raise||3 sets of 10|
|Dumbell Biceps Curl||3 sets of 10|
|Barbell Drag Curl||3 sets of 10|
|Triceps Kickback||3 sets of 10|
|Dumbbell Overhead Triceps extension||3 sets of 10|
|Lying Dumbell Triceps Extension||3 sets of 10|
I usually do full body workouts and don’t concentrate so much, so this is going to make me sore tomorrow!!
I thought I would do an eats post since I haven’t done that in a while and it always helps me to check accountability 😀
Once I got home, breakfast was oat bran with banana and egg white cooked in, topped with an apple walnut compote we got on our orchard visit.
(Note John’s sweet potato waffle in the background that he made).
Lots of work this morning and then I had a mid morning snack:
This is half a Balance bar. Looks tiny, no? Still 100 calories…
Not sure if you can see the wall behind the couch in the above picture. Wallpaper removal has started and I swear the unfinished wall looks so much better than that stupid wallpaper. It is dirty and torn. There were pieces of gum stuck to the wallpaper as well. Seriously, I know that they had kids, but come on. That’s just nasty.
Now I have gray paint swatches on the wall. I am leaning towards the middle one and now that choices are narrowed down to a few colors, it’s time to get the sample pots and do larger patches. Gray is a very unfamiliar territory for me with paint and it has been the hardest color to figure out. I love that you can now buy sample pots to try colors or just get them for smaller projects.
We had a very nice surprise from some of the neighbors. On Sunday they stopped by with a welcome basket!
That was very sweet. The neighbors that we have met have all been very nice so far. Many are glad to see someone is now taking care of this place. Let’s see how they feel when I put a bunch of pink flamingos in the front yard 😀 Lunch time included some of the cheese from that basket.
A tasting plate, as Biz calls them.
I would have had more cashews, but that was the very end of the bag. Wahhh!
Dinner time! John has pretty much moved to fish and seafood being the only meat he will eat now. I still eat ‘land’ meat, so we each cooked our own dinner (which is fairly common anyway).
Note lunch and dinner eaten at the dining room table! This is a habit I really am trying to enforce for myself and John ends up following suit so that we eat together.
We relaxed this evening with a walk downtown for some coffee. I love that Spot and Coffee Planet are only a mile from our house! Only Coffee Planet is not open at night, boooo….
Latte made with love by the barista:
We also popped into the library that is next door and I got books for the first time in a few months!
I think I have home decor on the brain or something…
