Things I Like


Staying cool

The heat is back!

Doesn’t that picture just look hot?? I unplugged from the internet after dinner last night and didn’t get back on. That was a nice little break. I love the net, but there is the real world, you know? Plus there was froyo to be had with my mom!

I got to the gym this morning and the drinking fountain was covered up for a boil water order in Glens Falls. Eeek! I would have brought my water bottle had I known that. I just like to walk to the fountain in between sets to get drinks when I need them.

Today was low reps, more sets and heavier weights. A sweaty day :D

Exercise Set/rep/weight
1. Crunches on stability ball 2 sets of 15
2. Complex: High Pull, Front Squat/Push Press, Back Squat, Good Morning 4 sets of 8 each exercise with 20# bar
3A.  Deadlift 4 sets of 5 with 90# bar
3B. Dumbbell Overhead Press with rotation 4 sets of 5 with 20# DBs
3C. Single Leg Squat 4 sets of 5
3D. Bent Over Row 4 sets of 5 with 60# bar

2 more workouts. Off to home and making breakfast!

Banana breakfast pudding.  Our bananas were getting brown fast, so we both had them at breakfast today to use them up.

Another busy work day and sneaking peaks at the Tour de France.  Poor Cadel Evans.  Not a good day for him and likely no repeat win.  The riders are in the Alps and I can feel my legs screaming watching them go up those mountains.

Then the mail carrier arrived with a gift to myself!

John and I are going to start bird watching.  I guess when I can tear myself away from the bike, that is.  We have some nice trails that have lists of the birds seen there to help us out.  Of course, that means getting up early – which John isn’t thrilled about  :twisted:

Lunch was a mish mash.

At least it was cool and refreshing!  I took a walk at lunch for about 10 minutes and decided no more because it was starting to get really hot.  The humidity is coming, too.  I am so glad we don’t live in the south.  I couldn’t take it in the summer.  Remind me of that when I am shoveling 3 feet of snow this winter, okay?

Break time!

I think I need a dried pineapple intervention.

I polished off more fruit for dinner.  Embarrassingly enough, today I finished off our bananas, strawberries and blueberries!

I loves my fruit!

Gotta water the garden tonight when the sun goes down.  It’s looking a little droopy and needs to be in prime shape for the Friday What’s Blooming post!

I will also be hitting the bike path early tomorrow to get in the exercise before it becomes sweltering.

Pixie is dreaming of cool weather.

She looks like she is snarling at something in her dreams.  She is such a sweet kitty that maybe she gets out her aggression in sleep.

Hope you all are staying cool.
