Getting my GREEN on

13 06 2009



This is what I had for dinner last night. After 15+ hours of basketball this week, I was craving something just like this. It’s a garden vegetable pizza (whole wheat crust) and one slice of Greek pizza. I had half of the small pizza, as well as the one slice of Greek from my parents pizza. 100_4559


Just look at all those veggies ^^^ 100_4561


This morning I wanted nothing but a lovely bowl of green oats. Mmmmm! With two scoops of wcw lovin, of course 😉




After relaxing this morning (the today show anyone??), I was off to the gym. I did strength training and here’s exactly what I did:

  • 3 minutes stat. bike warm up
  • 15 minutes elliptical
  • Leg Work:
    • Hamstring: 5 sets of 10 (30 pounds)
    • Hip Adduction: 4 sets of 25 (85 pounds?)
    • Hip Abduction: 4 sets of 25 (90 pounds?)
    • Calves: 25, 20, 10 (70 pounds)
  • Arm Work:
    • Seated Row: 3 sets of 10 (35 pounds)
    • Row: 3 sets of 10 (30 pounds)
    • Assisted Pulldown: 3 sets of 10 (45/50 pounds)
    • Bicep Curl: 3 sets of 10 (25 pounds)
    • Tricep Extension: 3 sets of 10 (25 pounds)
  • Ab Work:
    • Torso Rotation: 3 sets of 10 (15 pounds) <—this is hard!
    • 100 crunches
  • 10 minutes stat. bike
  • Normal finish (foam roller, etc)

A WONDERFUL workout.

My mom, brother, and I went to Jersey Mikes and I ordered a # 7 on wheat with banana peppers, onions, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, red wine vinegar, oregano, and s&p. Totally hit the spot. Yum. 100_4575


Thank goodness I found googler reader. It has made commenting a BAZILLION times easier. If you don’t use it, you should. Trust me, it takes a lot less time! 🙂

The rest of today’s plan: read proverbs, take a nap (hopefully!!), and get ready for the bf. We just watched Casino Royale together and I loved it and he own Quantum of Solace (spelling??) so we’re going to watch it. Should be lots of fun!

Verse of the Day: Ephesians 2:4-5

4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

Well, I’m off. I’m exhausted, haha.

Have a wonderful Saturday!!

Pizza pooorn! That pizza looks amazing, and after a weeks-worth of basketball you totally deserve it 😉 I’m also glad you enjoyed your green oats – so pretty. Reminds me of Dr. Suess’ green eggs & ham 😛

Have a lovely day and relax!

I haven’t tried green oats yet… what goes into them? What do you think the tastiest combo is?

13 06 2009

can you teach me how to use the google reader?

13 06 2009

Google reader is both a gift and a curse! If you go away for a night you end up with like 342 posts!! That sub looks like it hit the spot!

That greek pizza definitely looks delicious. All those veggies… YUM!

I’m totally digging all your green oats! How exactly do you make those? I know I’ve heard about the stick blended method, but is there another way to make them?

Enjoy what’s left of your Saturday!

I don’t know how you can do the elliptical. More power to you, but I get SOOOO BORED!!!!!!!! Adult ADD!!!! hahahaha Love the verse again. Mine for the day is Proverbs 16:3- Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed.
Just let go, trust in Him, and follow His path. Easier said than done for a type A personality like myself, but I’m working on it! 🙂

Hey darlin! It’s so great to “see” your shining face this morning!

Big time Yumlovin to that oatmeal. That is some GREEN food. lol Looks deeelish.

Proverbs is such a great book. Psalms and Proverbs are my favorite because I find that I can relate to EVERY single verse.

Have a great Monday sweetheart!
