I don’t remember if I told you that Erin had adopted a cat about 2 weeks ago. He is a GORGEOUS Bengal (no papers). She had him for about 3 days & he peed on their brand new couch. Greg told her 3 strikes & he’s got to go. I don’t blame him at all. I have never had good luck with cats & can’t stand the smell. I love other peoples’ cats from afar.
Earlier in the week he did it again. Greg asked her to call Jayme & ask about this…He is a couch peer. Damn. Erin asked Jayme if she wanted Erin to find a home or if Jayme wanted to try to find someone else to take him. Jayme said she would take him back. The tentatively arranged for Sunday & Jayme said she would let Erin know what time on Wednesday night. Jayme didn’t call. Last night she didn’t answer the phone when Erin called.
Last night Greg was alone with the cat & said the cat looked right at him & started to pee on the couch. UGH
I remembered that my sister-in-law is cat people. I told Erin to call her & see if they want him. Erin doesn’t want him to go to a shelter but if they don’t find a home for him that is what is going to happen. Hopefully my SIL will take him.
This morning was chest & arms day.
Incline db press: 25 lbs 4x10
BB press: 70 lbs 3x10, 1x9 just couldn’t get that last press up without a spotter
Flyes: 20 lbs 4x10
DB curls 20 lbs 1x10, 15 lbs 3x10
BB skullcrushers 35 lbs 4x10
I followed up with a BodyRock.tv workout—
50 High knees
25 V-Ups (she does a reach through I passed on that)
50 low jacks
25 (each side) plank side lifts
50 plyo lunges
That took me about 15 minutes. I did 15 minutes steady state on the arc trainer & finished with a hamstring stretch (all different hamstring stretches). I still have DOMS from Wednesday’s leg work. It’s not bad but I know I worked my legs & I LIKE that!
I’m at 157 today. It’s down from Monday & for that I’m glad. I’m 100% on. It’s been really easy this week. I think knowing I’ve only got a few weeks to deal is making it easy. I’m prepared to be on for the weekend with a reward meal on Sunday; Italian sausage with peppers & onions on the grill. YUM!
Below I have posted is what I have been trying to email to the blog & have finally gotten the correct address from the site…Every time I change computers I lose all of my autofill stuff.
Today was cardio day. I took one of Cathy Savage's cardio drills & modified it a bit. I did 5 intervals of 7 minutes on the elliptical with 4 sets of 20 lateral lunge w/floor touch, 20 planks with shoulder touch, & 10 plank jacks. I finished up with a really good stretch.
My legs are really tight from yesterday's workout. There was no way I was going to attempt to do a BodyRock workout. I did consider it. Maybe tomorrow.
I had a really good talk with my boss today. I had to go back to my office to get some things taken care of for him & pick up things that I can do over here because yesterday I sat & did nothing all day (hmmm, just like over there). While there he asked me what the General's asst does. When I told him that as far as I can see she doesn't do that much he laughed.
Then he showed me some things he wants me to learn to do. Basically I am going to start being his eyes on all projects that flow from his middle management team to him. It's going to mean living with my head up his ass for a while. I will be learning the business. Finally. I'm excited about my job again...
Until I hear about the other job.
Here is the post I sent to the wrong address yesterday...
I kicked ass doing legs today.
Squats: 6x6—95 lbs(4)/105 lbs(2); Need to go higher
Walking lunges: 6x6—25 lbs; need to do farmer’s walks! My traps need to catch up to the rest of my body. LOL
Romanian deadlifts: 6x6—Are you ready for this??? 95 lbs!!!! Yeah baby!!!!!
Step-ups: 6x6—20 lbs (4)/25 lbs (2)
I did 30 minutes on the cross-trainer.
My eating was spot on yesterday.
Today I am sitting in for General Devereaux’s administrative assistant. It is even more boring over here than it is over in my regular office. You would think not but it is. However, The General is out of the office this week so that might have something to do with it. Don’t know.
