Morning all! TGIF, my friends, TGIF.

Turns out my boss’s husband has a beach house in Outer Banks, NC – so I think the hubs and I are going to head down there (puppy in tow) over the labor day weekend/week for a small vacay! Yay!

Citrucel on the way to work – 7:45 a.m.

Breakfast – 9:30 a.m.

Well, I screwed up last night. In a flash of genius I decided to make my green monster for breakfast the night before, and then freeze it. What I neglected to do was remove it from the freezer before I went to bed.

That means, at 6:45 a.m. when I removed it from the freezer it was frozen solid. Oops. So I left it sitting out, hoping to be able to eat it at some point….but it took awhile. So long, in fact, I broke down and ate a Kashi because I was starving:


And then when I was able to get at it, it was with a spoon:


Nice eh? Really at this consistency it was like eating a slushie. heh

In the mix (stolen from janetha…no, I don’t know why she’s my inspiration for all breakfast all the sudden LOL):

½ c. milk

½ c. water

Lots of ice (8 cubes?)

2 cups baby spinach

½ cup or so fresh blueberries

1 fresh banana (my frozen ones are gone!)

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (EAS)

Had to pull out the BIG blender bottle for this baby J And I filled this bottle AND ¾ of my small blender bottle (which I left at home, in the freezer)

Lunch – 12:00 p.m.

3 slices of fresh off-the-bone ham, 1 slice provolone, 1 leaf red lettuce on two slices of Arnold multi-grain. With pretzels (I LOVE pretzels with my sandwiches!) and veggies (peppers, snap peas, grape tomatoes, carrots)


And the tiniest piece of strawberry pie you’ve ever seen as part of a birthday celebration.

Snack 3:45 p.m.

A fruit leather + ½ a Clif bar from yesterday.

I was scheduled for a lifting day today, but didn’t feel like it. So I just made it up as I went along:

10 minutes on the stair mill, pre-programmed intervals

The Oxygen Full Body workout I’ve been doing has been great, but I can tell some areas are lacking in definition and strength. Specifically? Triceps / back / glutes / calves.

So I did some moves for those areas, rather than doing another round of the Oxygen workout today:



Bent Over Tricep Extension 3x12x45

Cable Pushdown 3x12x40

Lying One-Arm Dumbbell Extension 3x12x10


Cable Row 3x12x40

Lying Dumbbell Row 3x12x10

Close Grip Pulldown 3x12x70


Sitting Leg Press 3x12x100

Single Leg Squat 3x12xbody weight

Lying One-Legged Hip Extension 3x12xbody weight


Standing Calf Raises

  1. Toes Straight 3×12
  2. Toes Pointed Out 3×12
  3. Toes Pointed In 3×12

Seated Calf Raises 3x12x25

50 minutes @ the gym = 346 calories burned. Not bad for makin’ it up!


Pasta primavera – with grilled chicken. Dave would die if we didn’t have meat with every meal. But I don’t complain because it helps me get enough protein each day. Vegetarianism isn’t for me 🙂


Onto the Weekend!

  • Thinking of making strawberry shortcake cookies because it’s the last week for local strawberries
  • Operation Weed Garden will be in effect…it’s getting a little out of control
  • Clean, clean, clean. Like every weekend.
  • My college roommate is coming to stay with me next weekend so we can go to another college friend’s wedding together. So excited!
