Its that time of year where it is hard to get out of a snuggly warm bed to go to the gym. If I didn’t actually like going, it probably wouldn’t happen as often 😀 I guess other people feel that way because it was really empty in the gym this morning. I was chatting with the employee and we were wondering where everyone was.
The iron den section all to myself!
No one was there to see my nice attire. Cupcake socks 😀
John got me these. I don’t remember if I showed them before or not.
Now I have moved to doing an upper body split/ lower body split, which means twice a week I do lower body and once upper and then the next week will be twice upper and once lower. Today was upper body.
|Cable lat pulldown||3 sets of 10|
|Barbell bench press||3 sets of 10|
|Seated lat row||3 sets of 10|
|Lateral raise||3 sets of 10|
|Bent over cable row||3 sets of 10|
|Incline chest fly||3 sets of 10|
|YTWL||3 sets of 4 (each letter)|
|Triceps kickback||3 sets of 10|
Here is a link to a video of me doing the YTWL a few years ago (and a size smaller as well… ) I like this kind of split better because I don’t like to focus on my biceps since they respond really well to training with other upper body exercises and I don’t really need to work them by themselves. I know they always say women don’t bulk up with strength training, but my biceps will. Not the rest of me, but just my biceps.
I did some walk/jog intervals on the treadmill getting in my 60 minutes today. I was pretty hungry for breakfast. Good thing it doesn’t take long to make protein waffles!
I think Pixie has found a new spot. Now that we have our Christmas tree up, Pixie has been laying in this window with the sun and by a warm radiator:
She is showing off her big feet, too. 😉
I mentioned the other day that working on the little half bath was the December goal. This is the room:
It mostly needed cleaning when we first moved in. The toilet had a bunch of stickers all over it, needed a new wax ring and being cleaned because of the filth that was left in it :barf:. I would like at some point to replace the sink way in the future because it is a huge sink and not to scale for this bathroom. It doesn’t look so big in this picture, but in person it is large. Whoever designed the 2 bathrooms did not understand the concept of scale.
The walls actually look good until you get to this wall:
It’s nice that a thoughtful child tried to color in the missing wallpaper, too 😀 So, there is some wall repair here as well.
Anyhoo – We are getting pictures hung up in the living room bit by bit. I will show the whole room once we get that done, but here is the progress on the mantle for the holidays:
Bit by bit things are coming together. It’s never ending, though. I wish I had a never ending budget!
