Home Sweet Home

by Joanne on December 28, 2008

We arrived home yesterday after a long day and a half of travelling.  The icy conditions in PA had not disappeared in the AM when I tried to walk Shane. It was impossible.  We only went about 1 mile.  It rained non stop all the way home.

So it was a quiet day yesterday, unpacking, washing, putting gifts away, but Pam who is visiting from FL came over for dinner. She and Ted had a steak and I had baked Tofu, marinated in Maple Pom with Old Style Grainy honey mustard. I baked it each side about 20 minutes.

simple-foods-001We had steamed broccoli on the side. I added a slice of lemon and a little garlic to the broc. while steaming. 

Good to be back to “clean” eating.

 

Sunday at Home

 Waking up in our own bed. Ahhh.  Although there was a moment upon waking where I wondered where I was. Too much wine over the last 5 days.

Up at 5:45 AM to check out the weather conditions by jogging with Shane.  We went 5 miles, but had to stick to the side streets because the walk ways that were cleared had a little ice on them. That should melt today as it is in the 40’s. 

I couldn’t resist getting back downstairs and doing a little more. So I spent 20 min. on the ET, 25 min. doing weights – one exercise each body part, 3 sets x 10 reps.

  • Walking Lunges with 15 lb weighted bar across shoulders.
  • Chest press, 45 lb bar.
  • Bent over rows, 20 lb dumbbells.
  • Shoulder presses 15 lb db’.
  • Tricep push downs using the rope, 30 lbs.
  • Bicep curls, 15 lb db’s
  • Ball crunches.

I finished with 10 minutes of rowing.  The weights were lighter today as I was simply intending to prepare my muscles for the week ahead, back to normal, one body part focus per day.

The workout was rewarded by a nice breakfast:  simple-foods-002  Sauteed 10 pcs. of asparagus-trimmed, chopped + 1 cup baby spinach + garlic and onions + 3/4 cup EggBeaters.  Reduced Fat Feta, red pepper and salt added. Topped with a few sprinkles of hot sauce. Served on top of 2 thin slices of pumpernickel bread.

Today, Ted’s family are coming over to celebrate a late Christmas and Shane and I will make our selves scarce.  People who are unfamiliar with him get a little nervous and we want everyone to enjoy themselves so Shane will just have to catch up on last weeks workload with me at the office.

Have a great day!
