I bought a different summer squash yesterday. I always thought the yellow squash was summer squash. I’ve never had this kind before. I thought I would branch out & try something new. The picture is what I bought…
I made it through the weekend without eating more than I should. I have my lunches planned out. I still need to cut up some vegetables and melon that I bought yesterday but I have frozen green beans, edamame, fruit & spinach for today. I have 3 oz of shrimp, ¾ c yogurt, a shake, and 3 oz of tuna for my meals today. I know I should probably have one more but I get home about 2 hours before John so I’ll grab a yogurt or cottage cheese when I get there. For my starchies I have a Lavash bread to put my tuna on with the spinach. I had ½ c dry oatmeal which I cooked with water & added ½ c almond milk to give it some flavor. Tonight I’ll make some Kashi pilaf for dinner & have 1/3 c of that because it is VERY high in carbs.
Today was back & arms. I was supposed to do pull-ups but our gravitron is broken & I can’t pull myself up on the bars & I just don’t jump high enough. I tried to have Kimberly boost me up but we got giggling so hard I was afraid she was going to drop me or that I would kick her in the gut. Neither prospect sounded good to me so I just passed on them today. I might get some in this evening when I go home. I can reach my bar. LOL
Overhand BB rows: 95 lbs – this is PB!!!
Pullovers: 35 lbs—I need to increase these
Side lateral raise: 15 lbs
Tricep extensions: 30/35/42.5 lbs
I finished up with 25 minutes steady state & 5 minute Tabatas—I did 5 minutes because I just wasn’t feeling exhausted after 4 minutes. I was running at 8 MPH on the treadmill so I’m not sure what’s up with that. Next time (later in the week) I will do something a little harder—maybe squats with an overhead press or something.
Did I tell you that Joe got accepted to East Stroudsburg University? He will start there in the fall. He’s going to go home on May 15 & start working Skytop Lodge. He has worked there before & has an uncle that works there. He makes really good money so he’s excited about being a full-time permanent employee there. I worry about him dropping out of school. He’s so damn smart. This kid can remember the craziest stuff from books that he reads & he will read almost anything he can get his hands on. He’s a pain in the ass and I’m glad he’s leaving but I don’t want to see him fail, either.
