hey hey heyyyy.
i have to admit. i’ve been a bit of a diva today.
i woke up this morning after a refreshingly schweaty hot sleep and was so not in the mood to go to the gym. but i was up, and i really had no excuses.
you see. today was my first day with nothing to do. literally no school to think about. no work. just whatever i wanted to do.
and although i didn’t really want to go to the gym. i did anyway.
and boy am i glad i did!
20 minutes on the stairmaster (5 minute intervals of levels 9-13, repeated 4 times) + 20 minutes at level 10 on the crazy spaceship machine that i talked about hur.
+ chest & triceps. i felt like a weak duckling today. and the gym was pretty empty. and my ipod ran out of juice 1/3 way into my workout.
- suspended pushups 3 sets 15 with 20 second pulse (bodyweight)
- standing oblique twists 3 sets 25 (25lb weight)
- incline dumbbell chest press 3 sets 15 (30lbs)
- dumbbell skull crushers 3 sets 15 (15lb dumbbell)
- tricep dips 3 sets 15 (bodyweight)
- overhead dumbbell extension (works back & chest) 3 sets 12 (20lb dumbbell)
- single arm tricep extension 3 sets 8 (20lbs)
- bench reverse crunches 3 sets 25 (bodyweight)
honestly when it came to breakfast all i could think about was greek yogurt & a dark chocolate vitatop.
go figure. i talk about dairy last night, and then next day it’s all i want.
welp. when in rome..
1 deep chocolate vitatop + 1 plain brown cow greek yogurt + 1/3c puffed wheat + 1 tbsp naturally more + 1 tbsp smuckers s/f raspberry preserves
chocolate peanut butter raspberry cheesecake.
cheesecake stats: 295 calories, 7g fat, 40g carbs, 24g protein
want a bite?
mmm. so good.
after breakfast was consumed i got some much needed computer work done. emails, angry phone calls with amazon, dishes washed. of course this was all done on a caffeination high.
the major thing i had on my to do list today? get. pedicure.
but for that i had to wait for sleeping beauty to wake up. sleeping beauty also known as jenna (my sister for the newbies out there)
so while i waited, i showered and then made lunch.
eventually snow white arose from her beauty sleep, and the ever so amazing hot stone massage & deep tissue pedicure massage chairs were closer and closer
i ate lunch while jenna ate breakfast. damn college kidz.
i could tell jenna wished her breakfast was my lunch. she had cereal while i had
a thomas’ whole wheat bagel thin open-faced with a two egg white puff on each side, mustard, about 1oz turkey breast, tomato, spinach & jarlsberg lite cheese slice melted to perfection + a huge bowl of roasted zuchinni, eggplant & brussels dipped in spicy deli mustard.
food belly + pedicure + trashy magazines = perfect day off.
two sisters eventually went out and about crossing things off our to-do lists. bank, pedis, library, produce pickup, & loading up on gas before the holiday weekend shoots those gas prices out the window!
by the time we got home at 3:30pm i was ready for a snack & jenna was ready for lunch. damn college kidz.
i had protein ice cream while she had a turkey sammie with cheese & cado.
she wishes she had my ice cream.
then we proceeded to let time fly as i blog creeped, she creeped upstairs and watched movies on her laptop. all in anticipation for deej to come home.
when deej got home from work the tripod of golean women hit up walmart so i could restock my gum collection & coffee collection & deej could buy me eggs. she loves me so.
she loves her daughters so much that she footed the ‘seems to be a thursday night sushi ritual’ bill
my sushi family loves me so much because they always make my seaweed salad portion on the heafty side and make my brown rice veggie roll with a little extra love.
i think everyone needs a sushi family, don’t you?
and now i’m spending the rest of the evening chilling with a hot cup of tea and two hours of so you think you can dance!
i’ve got a lower body workout & work on the schedule for tomorrow. and then saturday i’ve got spin and the rest of the holiday weekend i’m jet setting out east to our cottage :)
1. would you rather have the power to be invisible or the power to read minds? i think i’d rather be invisible! i feel like reading minds could be dangerous. like what if you don’t want to know what that person is thinking. atleast if you’re invisble you can creep on people and come and go as you please ;)
2. what’s your favorite holiday bbq recipe?! my favorite bbq recipe is deej’s famous chinese chicken salad! i actually posted about it last year and you can find the recipe here if you want :)
alright peeps hope you have a lovely thursday night and an even better friiiiiidayyyyy! :)
speaking of vitatops! fun fact that today marks the day that vitalicious will be making an appearance in even more costco’s cross the nation. as of today if you live in connecticut, delaware, maryland, massachusetts, new jerz, new yawwwwk, pennsylvaniana and virginia well you should probably head over to your local costco and pick yourselves up a box of vitaz!
but hurry! because they won’t be there for long!
and if you don’t have a costco card, no worries! because vitalicious and costco are running a twitter contest that includes a prize pack of a 3 month supply of vitatops & a year of executive membership to costco!
so either get yourself a twitter account or a costco membership. right?
