Things I Like


Salmon and gym in a bag

Another week begins!  I had to keep reminding myself that I didn’t have to go out and check on Billy big grin 

Here is someone who is very glad to not have any divided attention!


I had some puffy eyes when I got up this morning from happy/sad crying yesterday.  I am not one of those pretty criers.  It’s ugly and I hate how I feel the next day Crying

Anyway, I was really wanting protein waffles for breakfast today.


It’s starting to get noticeably lighter in the mornings now! Yay!  Spring is on the way, right?? 

It was a busy work day as well.  A good productive day for a Monday.  I cooked on through lunch, but I remembered to start a banana bread breakfast pudding. We have bananas that need using up, so I figured I would have this for lunch.


I need to do this more often. This was warm and filling for a winter lunch!  It actually got up in the low 40s today, which is like a heat wave, so John and I took a walk after lunch.  The sun was out and it was glorious!  Now temps are going to start dropping again, but I will enjoy it while it is here.

Afternoon snack:


John makes homemade chocolate sauce.  It seems pretty easy, although I don’t know the exact recipe. That’s John’s department.

Normally cooking salmon is also his department.  However, I decided to try a “no-fail” salmon recipe myself.  You rub a little oil on a salmon filet, salt and pepper, then put it on foil or parchment paper. Then put it into a cold oven. Turn the temp to 400 degrees F and cook for 25 minutes.  Well, our filet had to go about 30 minutes, but the technique worked really well!


The salmon was very moist.  I am actually liking salmon now, which is a good thing.  So, we now buy it when it is on sale.  I don’t love it enough to buy when it is not on sale Wink

Strength training workout today.  I used my Gym in a Bag and some dumbbells.  This was given to me a couple of years ago to review and it is a nice addition to have in my fitness arsenal.


Gym in a Bag comes with a flip chart of exercises to do with the bar and the bands:


This was my workout:

Front Raise 3 sets of 10
Triceps Kickback 3 sets of 10
Lat Pushdown 3 sets of 10
Biceps curls 3 sets of 10
Chest Press 3 sets of 10
Wood Chops 3 sets of 10
Squats 3 sets of 10
Good Mornings 3 sets of 10

I do miss the cable machine and true barbell, but this works for now, plus I don’t have to spend money on gas getting to the gym.  I may or may not rejoin.  We’ll have to see.

Now it is time for some decaf coffee and fruit and an evening with my hubby.

Hope you all had a great Monday!
