Things I Like


“A” workout update

I made it through yesterday and didn’t seem to have the snackies today.  Of note, there were no nuts left after the poker game!  So, I guess I don’t have to worry about that.  BTW – if you are interested in the nut recipe, here is the link. Be forewarned – addictive is a mild term for these things.  Pecans are the best.

Gym day!  I really look forward to going to the gym and doing these workouts.

I finished the A workouts today (B will finish on Saturday). Four weeks later. This stage had a max of 12 reps for each exercise, so what I would do each workout was to either increase to 12 reps or drop back down to 10 and increase the weight. Each session I would increase either weight or reps on several exercises. So, here is my progress on the A workout.  I did this workout 6 times over the last 4 weeks.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Week 1 Week 4
Bird Dog 3 sets of 10 3 sets of 12 with 5# DBs
Forward Ball Roll 3 sets of 10 3 sets of 12
Step Ups 3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 15# DBs 3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 20# DBs
3-point dumbbell row 3 sets of 10 (each arm) with 15# DB 3 sets of 10 (each arm with 20# DBs
Partial Co-contraction Lunge 3 sets of 10 each leg 3 sets of 12 each leg
Pushup 3 sets of 10 3 sets of 12
Hip-thigh Extension (single-leg bridge) 3 sets of 10 each leg 3 sets of 12 each leg
Bent Over Reverse Fly 3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs 3 sets of 10 with 13# DBs

Pretty pleased with this. The co-contraction lunges are hard and I had burning legs and I never did add any weight. Any kind of split-leg stuff is hard for me. I am ready for the next round of pushups with variation, so that should be fun. Feeling nice and strong with that.  Update of workout B after this weekend.

I realized that I hadn’t made coconut flour protein waffles in a while, so that is what I made when I got home.


My lap buddy was back. She was totally sacked out today.  I was lifting her up here and she doesn’t even care.

She must be part ragdoll. I love my cat big hairy feet and all.

Lunch leftovers!

I wanted crunch, so I had some Nut Thins with it.  They are the crunchiest cracker ever!

Work was kind of annoying today.  We recently got a new supervisor on one of my accounts, and he actually doesn’t know the account very well, which leads to communication problems.

I needed my break today:

I could have used a shot of liquor in there, but I refrained.

It was a poultry kind of day today. Chicken for lunch, turkey for dinner.

Topped with laughing cow and A1 steak sauce.  Or turkey sauce, I suppose.

Took a night out to have some coffee.  Yes, I brought some pineapple to have with my latte.

Gotta love my netbook and the free wifi!

I think I am going to totally delete my blog feed and reburn it.  I did that once already, but I am totally out of ideas about how to stop the comment feed.  Of course, this is only with Google reader and not with other subscription feed readers, so I don’t necessarily want to do that and lose those that aren’t having an issue.

The last resort is moving my blog to a new hosting service, but I *really* don’t want to have to do that.  I just don’t have the time to be messing with it like that.  Nobody seems to be able to help me, either.  I guess I have discovered a brand new internet problem to have.  Lucky me!  :roll:

At least tomorrow is Friday!
