We got hammered with snow! I shoveled late last night for a while and I am glad I did because it is heavy, wet, and sloppy. That actually kept the roads from getting too bad, so I wandered out to the gym this morning. There were only 2 crazy people of us there because of the weather, I think.
Stationary bike warmup, then:
- Chin ups: 2 sets of 2, 1 set of 1 (these are not getting any easier!)
- Barbell Romanian dead lifts: 3 sets of 8 at 95#
- Seated lat row: 3 sets of 8 at 55#
- 1-legged dumbbell deadlift: 3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 15# DBs
- Horizontal cable woodchop: 3 sets of 8 (each side) at 50#
- Dumbbell pliet squat: 3 sets of 10 with 35# DB
- Bent over reverse fly: 3 sets of 8 with15# DBs
Worked the hammies today! Then I tried out the elliptical for the heck of it. I have to say that I do not get the excitement over this piece of equipment. It felt awkward to me, and my legs felt too far apart. I just stayed on for 5 minutes and then went treadmill walking.
Came home to pick John up and we braved the weather to get bagels.
Probably should have stayed home, but we didn’t. The coffee shop was pretty busy, so we weren’t the only ones who needed a fix
I was reading this paper with breakfast to see what new events are coming up and I see this!
Results from the duathlon last October – 5th in my age group. Maybe there were more than 5 in my group, but I don’t know. Yay me! I am doing this event again and my goal is to shave 10 minutes off my time.
There was also some new artwork at the cafe featuring 2 of my favorite men:
Now they need some of my framed breakfast pictures to go next to them!
Did some work and then got to shoveling our driveway for the UPS truck to come in. About 45 minutes of shoveling. What a work out! In hindsight, I should have not worked out with weights today, since shoveling heavy, wet snow is a strength training workout in itself…..
Lunch time and I celebrated National Tortilla Day with a tuna wrap!
I was still really hungry after this, so I had a protein bar. It was still snowing at this point, so John went out and cleared out some more while I was working:
It has stopped snowing for the moment, but we are going to get hit again tomorrow. Possibly another 5 inches? It might turn into rain, we are sort of on that borderline.
I was all excited about dinner tonight because I actually was able to use the fading light to take a picture of it. Days are noticeably lighter now.
I used the GT express and added a cubed up laughing cow wedge to the egg mixture. Outstanding!
I did okay with eating today. I got snacky and had some peanuts and some crackers with my latte. I was stomach growling hungry. Think it was the shoveling.
Going to settle in with some pumpkin custard tonight and working. It’s a late work night for me!
