Yesterday was busy. Busy is good. I started my day by hitting the gym with a Shoulder Workout. I typically do 4 sets of each exercise and do anywhere from 8-12 reps.
Front Cable Raise
Reverse Peck Deck
After lifting I did a 35 minute “Burn & Firm” Treadmill Workout I got from Shape Magazine a few months ago. Not the prettiest picture but Shape doesn’t have this one on their website. I did an additional 20 minutes on the elliptical.
We went to the Zac Brown concert last night so on our way there we had to stop for a quick bite. This was my first Chipotle experience. I had a chicken salad bowl with beans, lots of salsa, guac and corn. Yum.
Zac Brown was amazing! We aren’t really country fans but they are different. It was a very upbeat concert and was great besides the wasted idiots in front of us that were blocking my view. Some days it sucks being 5 foot 1. But I would definitely recommend the concert and would go see them again when they come around. We didn’t get home till late so I took today off and I needed some time to recoup after the bad news.
After a very nasty sweaty Saturday AM workout, I had a yummy bowl of Banana Sunbutter Protein Oats. Don’t mind the dirty counters. We should have got the glossy one cause they never get clean!
Banana Sunbutter Protein Oats
1/2 c oatmeal
1 cup water or milk
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1/2-1 T sun butter
I typically add the protein powder before I cook it but you have to be careful and make sure you stir a bunch or else you will be chomping on some nasty clumps. I have both Sunbutter brand and Trader Joes. They are both equally delicious. I have yet to try the crunchy kind but I bet it is fabulous! This is what I used today:
Have I told you how much I love oatmeal? It is my favorite all year round. Speaking of seasons is anyone else getting excited about the Fall coming? It is my favorite time of year!!!! I LOVE it!
IVF #2 Update
Things are looking good. I got great news the other day and we are beginning our cycle. I was at the clinic for 6:30am this morning for blood work and ultrasound. Fun Fun! My antral follicle count was 13. 8 on one side and 5 on the other. This seems a bit low for someone who is 29 but no one has mentioned it being a problem. I should get the call tonight about when to start the stims! I will be using Gonal-F to start. Let the fun begin!!!
