Hi guys! It’s Monday and really, isn’t that enough said?
I woke up at 7am this morning and got right to bidness. That would be pouring some coffee.
Today wasn’t a fantastic coffee day. Not that it tasted bad just sort of maybe like I didn’t really want it and I was having it just because. I did some stuffs and some other stuffs. Then I finally convinced myself to do some strength moves. According to my training schedule, Mondays are strength and stretch days.
I did lunges and squats holding 10lbs (2-5lb dumbbells). I also did shoulder raises, bicep curls, and kickbacks with the weights. I then did some calf raises on the stairs, two 30 second planks and called it a day! Scott and I are going to do some yoga later this evening and that will be my stretch for the day. I did do a small bit of stretching after the strength though for injury prevention.
After that I showered and finally had myself some breakfast.
As much as I love oats and oatbran, I must admit that I do really dig on apple + yogurt + granola. It’s so good! I also added a small amount of maple syrup for extra kicks.
Rocks and I headed out for a short walk around the block because it was balls hot outside. Then I did a bit more things around the house including laundry and taking some business calls. The excitment doesn’t stop!
Scott mentioned he was hungry and I got lunch pulled together. I wasn’t feeling the salad today but am still on the carb kick thanks to Pre-Queen Time and since I don’t really eat a ton of carbs I decided to just go with it.
Small snack plate of carrot, cucumber, and whole wheat crackers with hummus. Chili garlic sauce on top.
Smoothie! Can’t go without that!
- 1.5C US cranberry juice
- 1C OJ
- .5C water
- Shredded carrot and parsnip
- 2 fresh figs
- 2 prunes
- 1 banana
- Frozen peaches
- Frozen blueberries
I don’t know why my smoothies have been coming out such a strange color lately but I assure you they are not gross tasting but fabbo!
Now I’ve got some worky stuff to take care of and other notes to do so I’m off for a bit. Catch you for dins!
