“I don’t like them Pokemon things”

Hey everyone! How are ya?? I loved reading about your grocery staples I saw some new items in there that I’m gonna be on the lookout for 😉

This afternoon, I decided to whip up some hummus using the standard recipe:


And made a sandwich to munch after spin while driving to my training appointment:


That baby had sprouted sourdough bread, homemade hummus, bell pepper and romaine. It took everything in my power to put it in the fridge and save it for later 😀

After reading poolside for an hour – I joked on twitter that the only thing I worked on today was my tan – I met Jeni at the gym for some shoulders, chest and triceps.

Here’s what we did:

Warm up Elliptical Cross country 1 program, level 5, 5 minutes
Unilateral shoulder press 5 lbs each 3 sets of 12
Stability ball push-ups Body weight 3 sets of 12
V-rope tricep press 40 lbs 3 sets of 12
Seated chest press 35 lbs 3 sets of 10
Assisted dip 95 lbs 3 sets of 10
Compound 30s 5 lbs each 3 sets of 12
Frog crunches Body weight 3 sets of 12

When I got home, I made a quick smoothie of brown rice protein, hemp milk, sea salt, Stevia, cinnamon and vanilla:


Grabbed my teaching stuff, and drove to the base gym to take yoga and teach spin.

Yoga was beauuuuutiful. I seriously love taking other instructor’s classes and even though I really wanted to spend the entire class in child’s pose, I got some serious stretching in.

Spin was a blasty as usual and my training appointment went really well—I had the funny quotes lady who always cracks me up.

Today, I made her do push-ups using the mini Fitballs (which look like spiky mini Bosu balls) flipped over. After 3 incredible difficult sets of push-ups, she was like, “I don’t like them Pokemon things” [referring to the Fitballs]. She said they looked like something outta Pokemon, and didn’t like them even more because they made push-ups just a little harder 😉

Another thing: she brought me a gift! A little food processor that she uses to make nut butters at home – I had told her about my homemade nut butter abomination. So I’m way excited to try it out!

Well I’m off to hang out with the pilot and put a breakfast cookie in the fridge for tomorrow 😀

Have a wonderful night!!

    and how sweet of your client to give you a food processor!

  18. Laura W on July 29, 2009 at 9:41 am

    lol- You sounded like my roommate when you joked that all you did yesterday was work on your tan. I don't know how you guys can lay out for long in the hot GA sun! I last for a few hours, max… but then again, I have a fair complexion and you guys don't!

    I never knew what the spiky balls (twss) were for– maybe I'll try that out after I finally figure out the bosu!
