*15 minute cleaning spree: I set the timer and we all clean like crazy for 15 minutes. If you're doing it right you'll break a sweat. It's a frantic cleaning episode. You'd be surprised how much you can get done! And 15 minutes is nothing. Just a blip and it's done.
*School with the kids: We added Texas History to our studies because there is a Texas exhibit at the museum. Yesterday we started with the rivers and Indians of Texas. It was fun reading about the Indians because a lot of the places mentioned were places we've been. Once we rented kayaks and paddled on a lake near the Trinity River and had lunch on an old Indian midden pile island completely made out of shells. Very cool.
*Strength Training, Chalean Extreme Burn Phase Circuit 3, week 1. Week 1 complete! Yay! Lots of squats, lunges and lateral raises. I'm still lifting light. Much lighter this time because my arms were still sore from Saturday. It's only 30 minutes long but I was sweating! When I'd go in for a lunge sweat would fly off my face. Awesome.
All 12 reps each:
- Sumo squats with overhead press
- lunge with calf raise
- squat with lateral raise
- lunge with frontal raise
- squat with calf raise
- sumo squat with delt raises
- squat with double overhead press
- lunge with lateral raise
- sumo squat with calf raise
*Protein! I was so hungry after working out. Needed some protein to build those muscles, right? We went to a meat market Saturday and got filet mignons for $1.99 each! 20 of them babies. Also some HUGE strip steaks and some marinated chicken and beef fajitas. All on sale. Next time I'm getting the pork tenderloin stuffed with jalapenos and cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. mmmmm.
Funny story: (keep in mind these steaks are already individually wrapped in bacon)
Lady at the meat counter (regarding the steaks): how do you want these wrapped?
Me: In bacon. (she looks confused)
Chuck: LOL Wrap them in twos.
Me: *palm to the forehead* (Oh, she meant how many wrapped together for the freezer.)
Duh! But it would be awesome if they had sheets of bacon to wrap them in. Just sayin.
My meaty dinner: 2 filet mignons (wrapped in bacon), broccoli and a salad with cilantro, cucumber, parmesan, bacon bits, and parsley.
|Oh, and a glass of wine. :)|
Was finally satiated after that.
*Sleep: I've been having trouble sleeping lately. I just can't get my mind to quiet down enough to let me slumber. And when I do get to sleep I'm up again within a few hours. Not nearly long enough. Last night I had no trouble going to sleep. I passed out and slept all night through. YAY for me! I feel human again. :)
For a Monday, I'd say it was a pretty good day.
