Blustery Afternoon

Happy Winds-Day! (Has anyone else read Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day? Poor Piglet gets blown away and Owl's house gets blown down!) It's really windy here in Boston, but the weather is SO much better than it was this morning.

I snacked on an apple around mid-morning.

For lunch, I ate leftovers from last night's dinner. Heavy on the vegetables, but really light on the tortellini and chicken sausage. I also added 3 breaded spinach and artichokes nuggets. I thought these tasted really artificial so I threw the 3rd one out.

I went to HealthWorks and walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. I didn't want to push myself too hard because we're supposed to run 5 miles tonight. I used free weights to work on my upper body for 10 minutes, and that was the end of my workout.

To work my upper body I did
  • Bicep curls with 10 lbs in each hand
  • Hammer curls with 10 lbs in each hand
  • Tricep presses with 10 lbs in each hand
  • Shoulder presses (palms facing in and palms facing out) with 10 lbs in each hand
  • Front raises with 5 lbs in each hand
  • Lateral raises with 5 lbs in each hand
I couldn't sit in the sauna because I was wearing a Flector patch on my back. The patch is supposed to last 12 hours and the heat from the sauna would've made it ineffective.

I started to snack on a new flavor of Jam Frakas bars. Yuck! The Peanut Butter Blisscrisp was anything but blissful. I attempted to eat 2/3 before I just tossed it.

I was much happier snacking on a handful of trailmix.

I had a great post prepared, but there was an error with the HTML code and it wouldn't upload. Since I'm computer illiterate, I had no idea how to fix it. I just deleted everything and I'll start from scratch later on tonight.


  1. Oh no! I'm sorry about the post. I hope you can retrieve it.

    Too bad about the bar. I'm a Larabar fan so I'm sad that the bars aren't getting good reviews.

    p.s. Wall-E is stealing your apple!

  2. Aw, wall-e! :)
    I'm going to the gym this morning, you reminded me how much I need a bit of sauna :D
