Abby and I spent the morning watching The Office and hanging out on the couch watching the rain.
About 10:30 I decided to get my butt off the couch and head downstairs to get my sweat on.
60 minutes on the bike and I was definitely sweaty! I finished my workout with a round of tug with Abby and planks and pushups.
For my planks and pushups, I did the following x2:
- standard plank on forearms and toes x 60 seconds
- standard pushups x 15
- plank with straight arms and on toes x 60 seconds
- triceps pushups x15
- side plank – hold each side x45 seconds
- downward dog pushups x 15
It was a good way to get in some strength training and ab work.
My pink socks made me happy to look at during the planks!
After a shower and folding a load of laundry, I was ready for lunch.
Repeat of yesterday: Salad of leftovers. It included:
- lettuce mix
- parmesan couscous
- roasted asparagus
- a few candied pecans
- sprinkle of crushed tortilla chips for crunch
- blue cheese dressing
It was just as good as yesterday. I really like the addition of grains – like couscous!
And just like yesterday, when I was done with the salad, I was craving some dessert.
Instead of diving head first into that open bag of candy, I made myself a yummy smoothie!
Such a better decision. . . in the mix: chobani raspberry yogurt, frozen strawberries, 1/2 frozen banana, splash of OJ. Finished with sprinkle of banana chips and chia seeds.
Perfection – and now I am full and not craving any more dessert!
I have never used a frozen banana in my smoothies before. It gave the smoothie a nice creamy texture – love it!
Abby loved the smoothie too. . . she actually got up from her ‘spot’ on the couch to come and help clean up my bowl!
Now, just chillin’ until Laura gets here in a little while! Hope you are having a great weekend.
