Things I Like


Lifting and the letter C

I was loving the AC at the gym this morning. Plus, there was a fan on near where I was lifting and I enjoyed the cool breeze as well. Gotta appreciate the little things in this heat!

Exercise Set/rep/weight
1. Plank with alternate arm/leg reach 2 sets of 10 each side
2. Complex: Deadlift, High Pull, Push Press, Reverse Lunge 4 sets of 8 each exercise with 20# bar
3A. Bulgarian Split Deadlift 3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs
3B. Single Arm Chest Press on ball 3 sets of 10 with 20# DB
3C. Back Squat 3 sets of 10 with 65# bar
3D. Chinups 3 sets of 10 with assistance

One more workout to be finished with FBB.  So glad to get the sweaty workout done early on what is the hottest/humidest (new word?) day thus far.  Today was one of those times when I felt like a hulk at the gym.

I kinda like this classic Nike ad lately:

If the image is too small, this is the text

My butt is big and round like the letter C and 10,000  lunges (squats for me) have made it rounder but not smaller. And that’s just fine. It’s a space heater for my side of the bed. It’s my ambassador. To those who walk behind me, it’s a border collie that herds skinny women away from the best deals at clothing sales. My butt is big and that’s just fine. And those who might scorn it are invited to kiss it.


Not quite a C, but good enough.

My mental practice has been to really try accepting the now as wonderful, even as I work to continue to make it better.

Came home to some cold-brewed coffee and I really had a hankering for oats,  just not the heat.  So I made up some banana custard oats and let them sit to room temp.   :mrgreen:

It’s been a bit frustrating at work this week.  Of course, the heat makes dealing with that stuff harder because of the cranky factor.  Is it only Tuesday?

I was ready for lunch.  I was not super hot as of this time, so I had more of a dinner style lunch with a turkey burger.

I crave hot sauce in the summer and I think it must be the salt I am craving from sweating.

I came up for air while working for an iced latte and limited myself to just one pineapple piece.

This is how the latte looks before I stir in the espresso.  Fun!

I knew with the heat that I wouldn’t be too hungry this evening, so I had made up some apple topping ahead of time to have with some nice cold Fage for dinner.

We decided it would be a good night to walk up the street for a little ice cream after dinner.  It was still 94 degrees out!  Eeek!

I mentioned this on Facebook, but I will say it here.  Remember the kitty that has been sleeping in garden? The other day I said if she came back I was going to name her Lily because she was sleeping in the lily patch.

John said “Don’t name the cat.”  Strong emphasis.  Okay, fine…  :roll:

Tonight as we came outside, John said “There’s Lily” –   :mrgreen:

My cone this evening:

Raspberry/vanilla twist.

The heat should be breaking tonight!  Yay!!!!!!
