A Day Outside - Sunning and Grilling

I wanted to thank you all for sharing past jobs. Some of you guys have had some really interesting gigs!

Weights & Kickboxing
This morning I got up and made my typical Saturday breakfast: PB&J&B Oatmeal before hitting the weights. Today was push muscles for upper body:

Chest:
Flat bench dumbbell press
Flat bench flyes
Decline dumbbell press

Shoulders:
Shoulder press
Lateral raise
Lying shoulder press (thanks for the idea Alyson @ Nourished Fitness)

Triceps:
Overhead extension
Weighted dips
Double-arm kickbacks

I followed up the workout with Cathe's Shock Cardio MMA Kickboxing and abs. I'm really digging kickboxing after upper body work. To me it is sort of like burning out the legs with plyo. I know...a little crazy huh?

Day Outside
I had a ton that I should have done today. However, I did nothing more than lounge on the patio and in the pool. I pretty much took the day off. It was almost like vacation. The only things I wore were workout clothes, my bikini, then PJ's. No makeup, no hair styling, no chores. It was a great day and I don't feel the least bit guilty. I do know I'll have to make up for it tomorrow of course.

To continue with the day outside theme, grilling seemed most appropriate. The local market (Argenta Market) that carries local produce had a shipment of sweet corn. Jason picked some up, so we grilled that with veggie kabobs (squash, zucchini, and a variety of bell peppers). I finished off my Chipotle BBQ Sauce by (recipe)  mixing it with my homemade Chikn' Seitan (recipe) and served on sandwich thins. I made a quick slaw to top the Chipotle BBQ Seitan Sandwiches. 
The corn was soooo good. It needed absolutely nothing on it. This was such a summer meal and totally hit the spot for the day. I hope you are all having a great weekend!
