Tonight’s post is coming to you a little late. I had a busy day today but you’ll have to wait until tomorrows post to find out why.
Yesterday was a pretty chilled day. I decided to sleep in a little bit and when I finally got my butt out of bed the first thing I did was hit the gym.
Yesterday’s workout was a great one. It started with a 5 min warm up on the treadmill followed by a weight sesh (each of the following exercises were performed 3 times)
|Bent Over Fly||20 lbs||12 Reps|
|Frog Crunches||15 Reps|
|Plie + Bicep Curl||20 lbs||10 Reps|
|Bench Dips||12 Reps|
|Bent Over Row||20 lbs||12 Reps|
|Reverse Crunch||12 Reps|
|Overhead Press||20 lbs||10 Reps|
After the weights I hopped on the treadmill and did a short interval run walk.
- 1 min @ 6.0, walk 1 min
- 1 min @ 6.3, walk 1 min
- 1 min @ 6.5, walk 1 min
- 1 min @ 6.8, walk 1 min
- 45 sec @ 7.0, walk 1.25 min (x2)
- 30 sec @ 7.3, walk 1.5 min
- 30 sec @ 8.5, walk 1.5 min
After the gym, I came home blogged and then headed to an hour long yoga class.
After all that exercise I was starving. Dinner last night was another winner. Mama Pea’s Noodle Salad with Peanut Mmmm Sauce.
You can find the original recipe here. I followed her except I left off the peanuts.
Mine turned out a little more like a stir fry then a salad it was still delicious. I’ll be making this for the husband next week when he get back.
After dinner I spend some time in the kitchen doing a little baking.
These were good but I’d say a little too many chocolate chips. I’d cut them by a 1/3 next time I made them.
These are ok but definitely not enough chocolate chip or peanut butter. I’d double those the next time. You can hardly taste them and the just crumbled apart when I cut them. They need more for everything to stick together.
Finally, I made a batch of my homemade granola bars.
I subbed the dried cranberries for dried cherries and it turned out wonderful. These are always my favourite bars not matter how much different types that I make.
