What a storm last night! I woke up to the sound of rain falling in buckets.  My thoughts were “it can’t possibly rain like this when Shane and I go outside”.  Not sure what time the rain was falling so heavily but when I woke up to work out, it had subsided.  When Shane and I left the house, it wasn’t raining.  I took my hat just in case and by the time we got home, about 40 minutes later, it was raining again.  When Ted went out side, 5 minutes after our return home, it began chucking it down. 


The workout:

  • Warm up:  About 35 minutes on Elliptical and Treadmill. I was watching “How To Boil Water” with Tyler Florence so when the commercials came on, I hopped on the treadmill. The TV is difficult to hear when you are running on the T/M.
  • Legs:  Squats 5 sets x 12 reps. Walking Lunges 4 sets x 10 -14 steps. Dead lifts 4 sets x 12 reps. Leg Press 3 x 12 reps and 1 x 20 reps. Seated Leg Curls 1 x 15 reps and 3 sets x 12 reps. Cable M/C Inner & Outer Thigh and Hip Extensions 4 sets x 10 reps.  Leg Extensions 4 sets x 12 reps. Calf Raises 4 sets x 25 reps.  Crunches 4 x 20 reps.

The breakfast:


  • 6 green grapes
  • 1/2 orange
  • 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill5 Grain Cereal + Peach Apricot Honeybush Tea Bag + Cinnamon + Dried Cranberries.
  • VPXVanilla Protein Shake with FUZE.

Trying to sleep in on a no workout day, such as Friday used to be so enjoyable well over a year ago when the house didn’t own a German Shepherd.  Now it’s quite a challenge.  It’s okay as long as both Ted and myself are still in bed.  But if one of us gets up, Shane and his herding instincts kick in.  As long as everyone remains in the bedroom, it’s okay.  If anyone decides to go downstairs, the “herd” is in disarray and something must be done.  Nipping is the usual way the dog gets his group back together, but when one is under the covers, there are no limbs to nip.  Unless the face is hidden, that falls victim to the herding dogs means to get his group together. First the face suffers a poke with a big, wet nose.  If there is a moan and a turn over, the dog whines and jumps up so his front paws are on the bed and he can continue the poking.  If you try to remain still following the initial poke, “play dead” so to speak,  it won’t work.  That’s the worst because the next strategy of this herding animal is to poke, lick, whine, lick, lick, lick.  It’s a messy wake up call.

Today, Ted decided to work out.  As you can tell by now, that meant that I was forced to get up as well.  Instead of a workout, Shane and I went for a 3.25 mile walk.  It was an easy walk, just to enjoy the fresh morning air. 

Breakfast: A bowl of Cream of Rye with 1 TBS organic reduced fat coconut, 1 TBS Buckwheat Groats, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries and 1 TBS raisins. 3 strawberries. A VPX vanilla shake with 2 TBS yogurt and 1/4 cup frozen raspberries.



Look at these strawberries. They have been HUGE in the markets lately.  Course strawberry picking is just around the corner.


Do you like to pick your own strawberries?  Do you end up eating way too many while you pick?DSCN1033
