Leg Day & Family & Pool Time

Leg Day
This morning I got up and did legs then just 2 of the boxing combos from MMA Boxing and the abs. I had a pretty good leg day. Though, I must admit that I'm not happy with my legs. They just aren't terribly defined, and I can't seem to build any hamstring muscle to save my life. For legs I did the following as supersets, 3 sets of 8 reps:

SS#1
Squats
Plie squats

SS#2
Static lunges
Calf raises (I did 15 reps for these)

SS#3
Step ups
Deadlifts

Slide back rear lunge (using paper plate and dumbbells, 2 sets of 8 reps as straight set)
Weight donkey kicks - 2 sets of 16 reps

It was a good workout over all.

Family Time & Pool Time
Today we went to see my dad and step-mother's new house and celebrate Father's Day. They were busy trying to move last weekend, so we didn't get to get together. We had a great visit, and they are so excited about their new house. They are like kids in a candy store giddy! I must admit a huge jealousy of their storage space. It's sort of funny to be jealous of storage space ;-) But, our house was built in 1890, and we have absolutely zero storage. Apparently they didn't shop quite like I shop back then. Hmmm.

After we got home (around 3), Jason and I headed directly to the pool to finish off the day. After about an hour and a half, we figured we should probably get dinner going. Grilling seemed appropriate, so we made Grilled Tofu & Veggie Sandwiches with grilled sweet and baking potato "fries." There really isn't much of a recipe. I marinated the tofu in a mango ginger habanero sauce I had on hand. The veggies included yellow squash, zucchini, and red and green bell peppers and topped with the Soy Kaas Montery Jack "Cheese." Pretty simple, but so good.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!
