Morning all! TGIF, my friends, TGIF.
Turns out my boss’s husband has a beach house in Outer Banks, NC – so I think the hubs and I are going to head down there (puppy in tow) over the labor day weekend/week for a small vacay! Yay!
Citrucel on the way to work – 7:45 a.m.
Breakfast – 9:30 a.m.
Well, I screwed up last night. In a flash of genius I decided to make my green monster for breakfast the night before, and then freeze it. What I neglected to do was remove it from the freezer before I went to bed.
That means, at 6:45 a.m. when I removed it from the freezer it was frozen solid. Oops. So I left it sitting out, hoping to be able to eat it at some point….but it took awhile. So long, in fact, I broke down and ate a Kashi because I was starving:
And then when I was able to get at it, it was with a spoon:
Nice eh? Really at this consistency it was like eating a slushie. heh
In the mix (stolen from janetha…no, I don’t know why she’s my inspiration for all breakfast all the sudden LOL):
½ c. milk
½ c. water
Lots of ice (8 cubes?)
2 cups baby spinach
½ cup or so fresh blueberries
1 fresh banana (my frozen ones are gone!)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (EAS)
Had to pull out the BIG blender bottle for this baby J And I filled this bottle AND ¾ of my small blender bottle (which I left at home, in the freezer)
Lunch – 12:00 p.m.
3 slices of fresh off-the-bone ham, 1 slice provolone, 1 leaf red lettuce on two slices of Arnold multi-grain. With pretzels (I LOVE pretzels with my sandwiches!) and veggies (peppers, snap peas, grape tomatoes, carrots)
And the tiniest piece of strawberry pie you’ve ever seen as part of a birthday celebration.
Snack – 3:45 p.m.
A fruit leather + ½ a Clif bar from yesterday.
I was scheduled for a lifting day today, but didn’t feel like it. So I just made it up as I went along:
10 minutes on the stair mill, pre-programmed intervals
The Oxygen Full Body workout I’ve been doing has been great, but I can tell some areas are lacking in definition and strength. Specifically? Triceps / back / glutes / calves.
So I did some moves for those areas, rather than doing another round of the Oxygen workout today:
Bent Over Tricep Extension 3x12x45
Cable Pushdown 3x12x40
Lying One-Arm Dumbbell Extension 3x12x10
Cable Row 3x12x40
Lying Dumbbell Row 3x12x10
Close Grip Pulldown 3x12x70
Sitting Leg Press 3x12x100
Single Leg Squat 3x12xbody weight
Lying One-Legged Hip Extension 3x12xbody weight
Standing Calf Raises
- Toes Straight 3×12
- Toes Pointed Out 3×12
- Toes Pointed In 3×12
Seated Calf Raises 3x12x25
50 minutes @ the gym = 346 calories burned. Not bad for makin’ it up!
Pasta primavera – with grilled chicken. Dave would die if we didn’t have meat with every meal. But I don’t complain because it helps me get enough protein each day. Vegetarianism isn’t for me 🙂
Onto the Weekend!
- Thinking of making strawberry shortcake cookies because it’s the last week for local strawberries
- Operation Weed Garden will be in effect…it’s getting a little out of control
- Clean, clean, clean. Like every weekend.
- My college roommate is coming to stay with me next weekend so we can go to another college friend’s wedding together. So excited!
