I had to pick up Daddy-o’s truck to take to Steve so I was treated to breakfast at my favorite joint – The Broken Egg – this morning. Had my usual of blueberry pancakes (no butter & sugar-free syrup, of course) and a side of fresh fruit. I was so excited to eat it that I forgot to take a picture. I even had my camera for this occasion! Shame on me!
I dropped the truck off to Steve and hit the gym for a brutal, but amazing workout. I started with 45 minutes on the treadmill and killed 5.3 miles. It was “pull” day so biceps and back were in for a beating!
- Cross body Hammer Curls with 10# dumbells: 10 reps each arm x 3
- Close grip Pulldown: 10 reps x 3 at 50#
- (NEW!) Lever incline row: 8 reps x 3 with 30# in plates
- Concentration Curls: 10 reps each arm x 2 at 30#
- Seated low row: 10 reps x 3 at 70#
I did some running and jumping jack intervals in between each exercise to keep my heart rate up and I felt amazing after I was finished. Off to Sam’s Club..
My take-out box from Sam’s looked awesome.
Fresh pineapple, Gala apples, spinach and clementines, giant containers of chives and minced onion, 3-packs of Laughing Cow, frozen blueberries and herb-roasted turkey breast. Oh my..
A trip to TJ’s was just as exciting, but I spent much less money 🙂
My weakness – light popcorn, plum tomatoes, canned salmon and Diet Hansen’s. I’ve been feverishly looking at canned salmon recipes and plan to use it this weekend. Hopefully, I can add a new, successful recipe to my arsenal!
I took some chicken breasts out for dinner, so I’m off to attempt Chicken Curry in a Hurry. Apparently, Steve loved curried chicken in his younger days, so I’m giving it a whirl! Again, I’m hoping to have a new, successful recipe instead of a cooking disaster story. Wish me luck!
