Wide Eyed Wonderful Tuesday

by Joanne on February 10, 2009

It was a GREAT day to wake up today!  Why? Who knows… just happened. The alarm went off – complete surprise. Meaning, I didn’t anticipate it by laying there half awake. I turned it off with no thoughts of delay, I was out of bed, in the bathroom, brushing, putting on clothes, and downstairs to grab water and a shake. Wow, did I feel good.

I was working legs today. To get a little bit of work done for my upper body, I did the elliptical for 20 minutes and the rowing machine for 15 minutes.

Leg workout, 30 minutes:

  • 4 x 12 squats + 4 x 20 leg presses
  • 4 x 15-15-12-15 leg curls + 4 x 20 seated calf raises
  • 4 x 15 leg extensions + 4 x 20 ball crunches.

Shane and I went on a 3 1/4 mile jog. It was a nice morning, not too cold and the roads were clear.

Was it something I ate? Was it something that happened? Was it the water I drank?  Who knows?!  I just feel good today. 🙂


  • VPX protein with 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats with 1 tsp raisins and cinnamon.
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries with 2 strawberries.

I actually doubled the oats this morning and split them with Ted. He had the oats yesterday and said that he much preferred the steel cut over the thick and rough Silver Palate.    If you check out yesterdays oats, you can see the texture difference, the thick and rough are not as “nutty” and chewy as steel cut.

Today is a busy day (again) at work.  We are feeling the economic slump somewhat and our customers are paying net 45 -60 days instead of net 30 but  at least they’re paying. I really dislike chasing money!   

You all have a great day and I sincerely hope you’re feeling as up as I am.
