We have such cold and blustery weather now, but I am not complaining after seeing what poor Western NY is going through. It’s sad to hear about people having heart attacks shoveling snow, but why are people trying so hard to shovel 7 feet of snow out of the driveway when the roads are impassable anyway? No one is going anywhere for a while. Stay safe, people.
I bundled up to head out to the gym. Thursday is standard lower body around here lately.
|Leg extensions||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
|Seated hamstrings curl||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
|Step-ups||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
|Stiff-legged deadlifts||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
|Standing hip abduction||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
|Standing calf raise||3 sets of 10, plus drop set|
I have some trouble with drop sets on my legs because once I drop to the lightest weight, I can go forever because my legs are pretty strong and recover fast, so I just stopped on some of these after 2 extra sets. I did 35 minutes of walking on the treadmill as well to complete an hour workout.
I was mentioning the other day about the 3 sections of my gym. Here is the weight machine/cardio area.
The cardio machines are in a raised area to the right so that you may look down upon all people using weights 😉
So, we had an interesting visitor yesterday. Those of you on FB saw this already. There was a knock on the door and it was the former owner of the house that got foreclosed on. He was offering to sell back to us some of the items that he took out of the house – one of which was the French doors that were missing from the North room. I actually did let him in the front door because part of me wanted to show what a little care given to the house did for it and he was fairly jaw dropped at the change in the kitchen. I kept stressing what poor shape the house was in when we got it. Anyway, we won’t be buying anything from him – original pieces or not. He should be giving us those items rather than trying to sell them to us. Not to mention that all the things he was saying about the situation were the opposite of what everyone else has said. He seems like someone who can never accept responsibility. Guess that is why he got foreclosed on and the other trouble that he has had. Loser.
Anyway, the foreclosed owner has stopped by and the owner before that stopped by. I really, really hope the original owners don’t come visit because it will be from the grave! 😯
We had dinner out tonight. John’s football meal again. He is on quite the roll and my picks suck! I must change that. Anyway, we tried a new place for some pizza. I got a calzone:
This was pretty good. Not as good as East End Eatery, but a smaller size, which is always good 😀
Now home to practice some guitar and then do the wallpaper removal dance while Thursday Night Football is on!
