And no, not talking about these guys.
Although, I do kinda miss the boy band craze of the late 90’s sometimes (Jeff was my favorite 98 Degree-er)
That’s how hot it was today. 85 degrees by 10A and just nastiness outside. I feel like I am living back in Phoenix but with humidity. Make. It. Stop.
I had such a wonderful day off and felt like I got so much done. I was in normal spirits, had more energy, etc. it’s a real shame that this work thing gets in the way of my life schedule. But, gotta pay the bills right?
I slept in until 745A (which was just fabulous), I felt so rested and relaxed, it wasn’t even funny. I made an egg and egg white omelet with red peppers and Trader Joe’s Feta with Mediterranean Herbs
I was waiting on the washer/dryer company to come pick up my set but of course they gave me a six-hour time frame in between 8A and 2P so I lounged around while Lincoln sat out looking at the window. He wasn’t doing anything, just sitting there. It really makes me wonder what he does when I’m at work or away. I’m really tempted to get a nanny cam but then if I see he is just sitting there bored, I will feel sad about going to work and having a life. Look at how he was glaring at me!
There was only one thing to do at that point-Fight Club Chihuahua Style. I got a puppet dog out of Lincoln’s Baby Bin (a bin with 20+ babies aka toys) and we had a training session.
Don’t worry, I have no intention of fighting Lincoln and am disgusted when I hear about dog fighting. I think people who fight their dogs should get thrown in a pit full of hungry, vicious dogs and let them go to town. I just want to know Lincoln can hold his own if he ever gets into a “situation” when someone is trying to mess with him. Good session indeed. I was on such a high from training Lincoln (and kinda was feeling like Mickey Goldmill) that I put him in my room and had a workout session of my own.
Upright Deltoid Row (13 reps, 3 set)
Side Bends (20 reps, 2 sets)
Swings (20 reps, 2 sets)
Shrugs (12 reps, 2 sets)
Halos (13 reps, 2 sets)
Squats (20 reps, 2 sets)
Shoulder press (12 reps, 2 sets)
Curls (13 reps, 3 sets)
Dumbbell 10 lbs
Tricep Dumbbell Kickbacks (13 reps, 2 sets)
Tricep Extensions (12 reps, 2 sets)
Front Lateral Raise (13 reps, 2 sets)
Stability Ball Crunches (15 reps, 2 sets)
The delivery guy came right after that once I was in my normal clothes again and not looking like a complete wreck. Lincoln is a quiet dog for the most part but barks anytime a stranger comes and goes absolutely berserk when a man comes in, he just doesn’t like them (which is not good for my game). The delivery man came in and not one peep from Lincoln, which really perplexed me. I was telling the guy this and noticed he had an accent and asked him where he was from originally and he responded with “Mexico” then I said “Ahhhh it’s b/c you’re of the same ethnicity—he’s part Chihuahua!” LOL he thought that was funny (all I’m ever looking for is some laughs to validate my great sense of humor and wit) and he went over to Lincoln, pet him and said “Hola amigo!” It was cute. I went to the pool for two hours afterwards and had the entire thing to myself—it was great! I was sure to re-apply the sunscreen every 20 minutes because I didn’t want to burn and need to protect my money-maker as much as I can.
I was famished by the time I got in and made a tuna melt for lunch. It was so nice to make my lunch, listen to the Beatles and dance around the kitchen for once. I always listen to music when I am cooking or prepping and it makes it an even happier event than normal. I mixed tuna with Light Mayo, pepper, paprika, red pepper flakes with red pepper and onion and placed on two toasted pieces of whole wheat bread and topped with tomato and 2 slices of Monterrey Jack cheese then broiled for 10 minutes and served with a side of Trader Joe’s Organic Baked Nacho Tortilla Chips with Tabasco sauce.
I spent the rest of the afternoon shopping, I got some cute clothes for NYC and some accessories to go with and had an iced coconut coffee with skim milk from Dunkin Donuts. Ummm, why does it look like an Arnold Palmer?
Broke into my Newman’s Own Organic Champion Chip Cookies-Double Chocolate Chip
It’s 160 calories per serving, which is only four cookies. Edit, four small cookies. I enjoyed the taste, they were super chocolate and mint flavored but wouldn’t buy these on my own based on that serving size (I won these in a giveaway)
I am still on Operation Clean Out My Kitchen so for dinner I made Health Is Wealth Jalapeno and Cheese Munchees
“Health is Wealth Jalapeno & Cheese Munchees are bite-sized, crispy puffs of wheat, crunchy on the outside, cheesy on the inside with just the right amount of Jalapeno peppers. Jalapeno Munchees cook up in minutes and pucker when done. Our lip-smacking blend of all-natural, low fat ingredients with no added sugars will keep you coming back for more.”
I’ve never tried any of their products before so I was super excited because I love trying new stuff! I bought these on a whim awhile back but you never know with the frozen products how they will turn out. They reminded me of Totino Pizza Rolls.
They only took eight minutes to cook in the oven and I served with a baby spinach salad with onion, zucchini, tomato and cucumbers topped with Red Vinegar and T Marzetti’s Light Ancho Chipotle Ranch
I sipped on my new favorite—cucumber water, so refreshing!
Hope y’all had a Happy Humpday!!
Remember tomorrow at midnight is the deadline for my giveaway!
