I would have been HAPPY to see Mary go, but Lady Sybil? And speaking of Mary... when Edith was extending an olive branch of peace at Lady Sybil's bedside, Mary just pish-poshed her to the wayside. No wonder Edith can't stand her... I can't either. Mary is my least favorite character, and sadly, Lady Sybil was my favorite.
Look how cute my girl looks here! She was asked last minute to fill in a 3x3 soccer tournament this past weekend. They got third place. And I'm proud to say that Elisan got the game winning GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Such a proud mama moment.
So, I've kicked up my workouts again. Oh? You didn't know I was slacking in the gym? Well, yes... yes I have been. Don't get me wrong... I'm still going to the gym as often as I can, but lately, that's only been about 3x a week and I've mainly focused on cardio. Sadly, it is not nearly enough because I enjoy eating.
Anyway, so I've begun lifting weights again. And writing stuff down to keep track. I always thought I was the biggest nerd in town when I kept a gym record of my lifts, etc., but you know what? I really like looking back and seeing how much I've improved over the course of a few months. Sadly, though... it also lets me know how much muscle mass I've lost since I began slacking off... which is a ton. (For example, I used to be able to bench press 95lbs. Now, I can barely bench press 70lbs. That's what slacking will get you... flabby muscles.)
If anyone is interested, here's my workout log. Try it out, see what you think. If there's an exercise you aren't familiar with, just look it up. Below is my upper body workout. I have it set to do every Monday and Thursday -- both days have different exercises.
Below is my lower body workout. I have it set to do every Tuesday and Friday -- again, with different exercises on both days.
Disclaimer: I'm not a trainer and I don't pretend to be. All I know is that when I was doing these weightlifting exercises I was strong and I felt awesome.
I have recently added a must-buy item to my weekly grocery list and it's FAGE Plain Greek Yogurt 2%. I love to use it as an ingredient for cooking, making salad dressings and dips, including fruit dips. But, I'll be honest... by itself, it tastes like sour cream, so I could never imagine eating it as a snack. That is until I decided to mix in a teaspoon of brown sugar and what do you know? It's super yummy!
I especially love the fact that the 7 ounce container of FAGE Greek Yogurt is only 150 calories and a whopping 20 grams of protein. That's a huge amount of protein y'all. (And adding a teaspoon of brown sugar only adds about 15 calories to the container. Of course, you may want to add more, depending on your taste.)
Anyway, definitely give it a try... Especially after a long hard workout, hint, hint!
