why hello lovlies!
what’s not so lovely today? well besides the jets not making it to the superbowl, the weather isn’t exactly up to par neither (thank the lord i’m not an english major). i almost got knocked over by the wind and rain getting in my car at work before. that would have been one for the books. but hey i’ll take rain over snow anyday.
you guys are so smart all getting yesterday’s puzzle and all. i thought i would have had you tricked ;)
while i watched my jets do so well and then not so well i took mental breaks and threw together a post of chili.
chopping veggies is the ultimate stress reliever. let’s start giving out pairing knives instead of stress balls right?
and so my decadent dinner involved a bowl of hungry girl’s dan good chili with extra lean turkey added in to the recipe & a dollop of greek yogurt on top, a side salad & some lettuce wraps to roll up my chili in. because das how i do yo.
later on post game i drowned my sorrows in a bucket of love. otherwise known as popcorn.
i was angry the second football game went into overtime because it put off my bedtime by about a half hour.
none the less i woke up this morning gearing and ready to head out to 6am spin. i tried something new for a change and had a little bit of snack before the class. last week i was feeling no maximized to lift weights post spin so i took gina’s advice and munched a little something before heading out the door.
2 slices of arnolds reduced calorie bread with 1tsp better n peanut butter on each slice.
spin kicked my butt. in a major way. i wanted to cry for help. i spinned on.
then i threw some weights around. back&biceps
- barbell bicep curl 4 sets 10 (30lb barbell) superseded with dumbbell pullover 4 sets 12 (20lb dumbbell)
- outward dumbbell curls 4 sets 12 (10lb free weights) superseded with bent over reverse rows 4 sets 12 (30lb barbell)
- reverse fly machine
|1st set||35lbs||12 reps|
|2nd set||40lbs||12 reps|
|3rd set||45lbs||10 reps|
|4th set||45lbs||8 reps|
- v rope hammer curls 4 sets 12 (35lbs each set)
stretch and peaced outta that biotch
to be honest the pre workout snack made me feel really nauseous during spin! and it didn’t make me feel any stronger during my weight lifting. maybe i should try something different?
anyways! i left the gym, drove through the monsoon, into the swirly whirly gumdrop forrest, monsooned myself in the shower and then proceeded to stand in my kitchen for about 5-10 minutes deciding what in the world i wanted to eat for breakfast.
i went with a whippalicious treat.
whipped pumpkin pie ala mode well almost
in the food processor went: 1/2c canned pumpkin, 1/2c cottage cheese, 1tbsp eas vanilla whey, cinnamon, splenda & vanilla extract. topped it off with 1/2 sliced banana & 2tbsp pb2.
after that? oh bring on the good news.
i went to work, drowned in water & came home to mange lunch while beaming with the glory that my life is about to get really busy and really awesome.
cottage cheese for breakfast and lunch?
you bet i did.
sorry for the bite. i was hungry okay?
