It’s been a very speedy week thus far! It’s been nice to spend the past 2 nights with the hubby and enjoy some much-needed time together! Work usually gets in the way of my subtle reminders of why I love him so much!
Who couldn’t love this silly man?!
Today was supposed to be spent overseeing a heating guy replace a part in our heater, but the owner of our condo finally wised up or the repair company is very persuasive. Whatever the case, he decided to replace the entire, outdated unit! Praise God! The fixes will occur when all of the parts come in.
The other upside to that is that I could enjoy a morning in the gym! I didn’t get there until 8 so it was more crowded thanI like it to be. I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical, then hit Chest and Triceps:
|Flat Bench DB Press||10 reps||15# DBs|
|10 reps x 2||20# DBs|
|Bench Dips||12 reps x 3|
|Flat Bench DB flye||10 reps||10# DBs|
|10 reps x 2||15# DBs|
|Skull Crushers||10 reps x 3||10# DBs|
|Cable Tricep Pressdown||10 reps x 3||40#|
|(strangely, on 1 machine I can only go up to 40#, while on another I can press 70#..odd)|
|Cable Crossovers||10 reps x 3||10# each arm|
I finished with another 20 minutes on the elliptical, while constantly listening to my tummy rumble. Envisioning a yummy batch of protein pancakes, I came home and made the best-looking (well, best-tasting too!) cakes EVER! I think the key was only heating the pan on low heat.
You can see that I had good intentions to make a crock-pot meal tonight, but a headache kept that from happening. Instead, Steve suggested Chinese food.. another reason I love him so much! He knows when I really don’t need to cook. He ordered his usual pork lo mein. For me?
Steamed mixed veggies with some stir-fried turkey tenderloin that I had on hand:
No sauce or rice.. just a sprinkle of garlic powder and a dash of low-sodium soy sauce. Perfection.
In an effort to make it to the gym by 6:30 tomorrow, I must hit the hay now. Night!
