I’ve managed to fit in some decent activity by taking a few breaks from working. I hate being chained to my desk!
Break #1: 20 minute stroll around the neighborhood with the doggies. James definitely enjoyed the action!
My fat little moo cow, Maggie (she doesn’t require a leash — she’s too slow to run away):
It’s absolutely beautiful outside, but it’s not really lay-by-the-pool weather — too breezy.
After the walk, I came back home and worked some more. When I felt I needed a second break, I busted out the Nuru Exercise Anywhere cards:
This handy little deck contained work outs for every major muscle group in your body. This is PERFECT for someone like me, who can never "remember" good strength training exercises to do. The exercises are organized by muscle group. And best of all, there’s no equipment required (except hand weights and a towel). Pretty nifty!
I did most of the Chest exercises, which were so challenging!
- 10 regular push-ups
- 10 incline push-ups
- 10 decline push-ups
- 5 pike-push ups (killer!)
- Seated Reverse Fly – 3 sets of 12 repetitions with 3-lb weights
Here I am, mid-decline push-up:
It was KILLER! Just a heads up, I’ll be giving away a deck of the Nuru Exercise Anywhere cards next week, so stay tuned for the giveaway!
After my mini-workout, it was time for lunch. I made use of my Thai leftovers from last night.
To bulk the dish up, I added 3/4 cup cooked brown rice and steamed asparagus.
Mmm Cashew Chicken is my fav!
Back to work I go!
