Almost As Good As New
Oscar Sunday! Even though the Golden Globes are by far my favorite awards show, I do enjoy the Oscars. Really I like the Red Carpet and find the rest a little boring, I’ll usually DVR and flip through all the stuff I don’t like. What the heck did the world do before DVR?
I’m almost as good as new too! I woke up feeling about 70% better than the day before (awful migraine attack). By the time the afternoon rolled around I was a good 90%. My appetite still isn’t that great, but I’ve been forcing myself to eat to keep my metabolism going.
In the morning I had one of my Peaches N Cream Protein Milkshakes! Ingredient included=unsweetened almond milk for U… a stretch but hey not many foods start with U! I scarfed it down after I got out of the shower.
Phoebe hopped right in her bag too and off to G-Mama and Pop Pops we went! Poor little dog was so happy to get out of our apartment
I had corncakes with a little peanut butter as a snack with some cottage cheese
Since I was feeling better I hit the gym 🙂
I did 30 minutes of stairmaster goodness, and boy I was sweating! It felt good. Then I did some shoulder work
- Upright rows, 40 lb bar, 15 reps x 4 sets
- Front delt raises 20 lb bar, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Single shoulder press with 20 lb kettle bell, 10 reps x 2 sets each arm
- Single arm kettle swings, 20 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets each arm (little squat action in here)
- Delt flys, 20 lb weights, 15 reps x 4 sets
- Front Arm circles with 5 lb kettles, 16 reps x 4 sets EACH DIRECTION!
- Lateral raises with 8 lb kettles, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Shoulder shrugs with 35 lb weights, 15 reps x 4 sets
- Rotator cuff open and close, single arm cables, 15 lbs, 12 reps x 3 sets each arm
I also hit 10 minutes of arc trainer, some stretching, and then went back to pick up my girl!
When we came home I did some heavy bathroom cleaning. I am a firm believer in BLEACH, well obviously it is not good for small areas without windows, I think the fumes made Phoebe and I a little crazy! But I did burn extra calories 🙂
I also changed my sheets and guess who decided she was going to have a little sleepover party on my blankets?
She’s a little stinker and gets away with murder because she is so cute! She knows it too…
But look at this! EMPTY laundry basket. I usually always have at least a few things in it because I do lots of different loads all week (I go through so many gym clothes). But not last night! empty 🙂
If you are one of those people that is obsessed with the smell of laundry like I am, I highly recommend these little laundry scent boosters.
You just add those little scent beads to the wash along with the detergent. No Downy is not giving me anything for this. I just thought I would share the wealth! It made all of my laundry smell so wonderful! Especially because I have a front load washer (people that have these know what I’m talking about).
This week I am starting APPETIZER WEEK! I noticed I haven’t made any of these! While some of my recipes can be made into appetizers, it is limited. I guess I haven’t made any because I don’t host parties or found a reason to make them. Just because I am a hermit, doesn’t mean the rest of the world is! So starting today I bring you my first appetizer recipe.
Here are some awesome Chicken Parm Cups
These little babies have exactly 100 calories and an edible bowl! YUM!
I can’t believe the weekend is already almost gone! I guess because I spent all day Friday sleeping. Weekends just fly don’t they?
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
