Long night, Early Morning

by Joanne on June 22, 2009

It seemed inevitable that Monday morning’s workout wouldn’t go so well due to lack of adequate hours of slumber.  You see, there were 2 hours of a premier called “Merlin” last night. I am such a fantasy fanatic when it comes to castles, wizards, witches, and werewolves.  Yes, I’m a “Harry Potter” fan as well.  Even though the clock kept ticking away, approaching ten o’clock, there was no way I could fall asleep with out watching “Merlin” right to the end. 

At about 2:30 am – AGAIN..Shane decided he wanted water in a little plastic bowl from our bathroom.  He won’t go downstairs to drink out of HIS water bowls – he whines wanting the water in the bowl out of our bathroom.  So he tortured us for about 20 minutes with the crying and the nose-nudging.  He did not get what he wanted since this habit is one we have to nip in the bud quickly.

So back to the workout, I surprised myself and did a pretty grueling workout.  It was chest and bicep day. Instead of beginning with aerobics, because I did get up about half an hour later than normal, I jumped right into working chest. This is how it went:  4 sets x 12 reps.  Increasing the weight with each set. 1. Bench Press. 2. Dumbbell Press. 3. Flat Bench Flies. 4. Pec cross overs using the cable machine.  Same thing for biceps: 1. Concentration curls 2. One arm cable curls 3. Rope curls 4. Hammer curls. 

My aerobics was done after the weights. Shane and I ran 5.35 miles.  The run was fairly uneventful. There were quite a lot of people running and walking along the Parkway this morning.  It’s a sign that the Boilermaker is fast approaching.

Breakfast Food:


This mornings breakfast was 1/4 cup dry Steel Cut Oats, cooked with water and 1 TBS Apple Cinnamon Flavored Instant Oats and extra cinnamon. I added some craisins for sweetness.

1/2 an orange on the side. The protein shake was a large scoop of vanilla VPX with 6 small strawberries.

It’s off to begin another work week. Sue is out today, she’s feeling nasty. Get better, Sue!  I’ll be bringing my lunch to work and spending the day at the desk.  Could be worse.

Have a great Monday!
