Shane is back to normal. I was almost thinking that he was quieter the last week because he had matured somewhat. WRONG!  I did discover what was causing the itching around his neck… me giving him a bath.  I hope it’s just the doggy shampoo I used and he’s not reacting to being clean!   

Wednesday. Hump Day.  It was a workout of back and triceps.  4 x 10 – 15 reps. of each exercise.  The exercises today were bent over rows (I don’t like doing these), one hand overhead tri extensions.  Mid pulley rows, two hand o/h tri extensions.  Lat pull downs -wide grip, tricep presses. Lat pull downs – V grip, tricep dips. 

It was a 4 mile running warm up on the treadmill and a 3 1/2 mile walk/jog with Shane. Nice morning to be out there but my chin got a little cold.  The wind was blowing on our walk home. There was even one point when I wondered if my tongue was actually getting cold since I was walking with my mouth slightly open and it kind of felt “frost bitten”.  Pretty picture isn’t it?!   

Here’s breakfast…



Protein Shake: 1 VPX Whey Pro. + Ice and water + Raspberries + 1/2 banana.



1/3 cup of Silver Palate Thick and Rough Oats cooked with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 banana, 1 TBS Organic Reduced Fat Coconut, and topped with 1 1/2 TBS Granola (just make sure to keep an eye out for this Granola tomorrow).

I also tossed into my mouth about a TBS of soynuts, almonds, raisins as well as a tsp of Naturally More PB while I was making up my mid-morn. snack. 🙂

Gotta get with it… this is a post break…but now breaks over.. have a super day!

 It’s a run around Monday. I have to get Shane to the Vet for an annual rabies vaccination so he will go to work with me, we’ll break for the Vet around 9AM.  I’ll drop him off and get back to work to finish up the morning.  If all goes well, while we’re gone, the dishwasher repair guy will come and fix that thing once and for all.  Then we have to focus on getting the vacuum fixed.

To start the day, I had a VMX shake.  Worked through 30 minutes on the treadmill. Had a good chest and bicep workout. Shane and I went 2.36 miles and he found a wonderful soccer ball that he carried all the way home.
