It’s cold this morning, 23 degrees! Brrrrr.    I got up with a sore hammy. so I decided to do some E.T. It never loosened up and that means, take a break from running for a day or so.  Although my alarm was set for the usual time, I decided to shut it off to see if more sleep was needed as I worked out Sunday and actually completed all “body parts” for the week.  I ended up getting out of bed 20 minutes later and doing a total body routine.  It went something like this:  35 min. on the E.T. 10 minutes of rowing. 25 minutes using 12 lbs dumbbells on the ball which consisted of 24 different exercises for the whole body. 20 repetitions per exercise.  Shane and I braved the cold with a 35 minute relatively fast walk.

breakfast-steel-cut-001For breakfast, I decided on GF Steel Cut oats with 1/2 a banana that Ted left me, plus 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  I added 2 strawberries to the oats.  I had a pre workout Jay Robb shake and a post work out Jay Robb shake which included 2 strawberries.

Now on to work for a meeting with an Ad Rep. Have a great day!

Last night’s dinner at Chesterfields with our guests was enjoyable. Jan (pronouned “Yan”) from Sweden ate something bad on the plane so he didn’t join us. However Julian and Jerry were quite impressed with our Utica Italian Cuisine.  We ordered the Greens Morelle and everyone loved them (meatless of course).  Ted recommened the Veal Parmesan to Jerry and he must have thanked Ted for his recommendation about 5 times. Julian had pasta with clams in marinara and couldn’t stop eating. I had the same as the prior week because they were out of haddock:  Salmon and Shrimp in a marinara cream sauce (on the side).

Today is busy going over the job, and revamping inspection criteria, etc.  If all goes well, we will get larger orders and they will use the parts in a new product.

As for breakfast to start this day… well, let me back track. My alarm went off as usual at 3:50AM, but we didn’t get to bed until 11 so I didn’t get up. Got up at4:30AM but decided it was too early.  Finally got up at 4:50 and was in the gym by 5AM. Prework out shake was VPX whey pro.  Did a quick 30 min. of shoulders, it was a good workout. I didn’t slack, used a med – heavy weights but worked right along by supersetting.  Shane and I went for a 3 1/2 mile run.  Not bad on 5 1/2 hours sleep.

Todays breakfast was: VPX protein with 3oz raspberries. Grain was just under 1/4 cup GF Steel Cut oats topped off with Buckwheat Groats. 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp raisins. Fruit, along with the raspberries was 1/2 a grapefruit.
