I did a total-body workout that looked like this:
- 20 min. elliptical warm up
Followed by three sets of 15 reps of the following exercises (with the exception of abs, which I have detailed below):
- Leg press
- Leg extensions
- Hamstring curls
- Ryan’s awesome shoulder exercise
- Bicep curls on Bosu sports balance trainer ball (<– Use of the ball inspired by my workout with Ben)
- Tricep dips
- Shoulder raises
- Abs (100 crunches + 60 sec. plank)
Someone please tell me why planks make me feel like I am dying a slow, slow death.
Walk with a Stick Lover
After the gym, Ryan and I came home to take Sadie on a one-mile walk.
During that time, she found three different sticks to use to entice us into playing with her.
Sadie’s affinity for sticks may only be topped by her affinity for McDonald’s cheeseburgers.
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to own a calm dog. But then who would I terrorize? 😉
Breakfast today was seriously fantastic and oh-so-simple.
I know it doesn’t look like much, but trust me on this one.
The winning combination included:
- 1 toasted cinnamon raisin bagel thin
- 1/2 sliced apple (I ate the other half)
- 1 slice Swiss cheese
I placed the cheese on one half of the bagel thin and the apple slices on the other half. After toasting the two halves in the toaster oven, I had warm apple slices and melted cheese.
I don’t know why I was so enamored with this breakfast, but I couldn’t get over how good it was! It’s all about the cinnamon raisin bagel, I’m tellin’ ya.
Now = Work time. It’s FRIDAY!
