Busy Saturday: Chores, Workouts, Pool Time, Sister Time

Friday Follow Up
Thanks for sharing your stories on how you met your significant other. I really enjoyed them. It's so fun for me to learn more about you all.

Jason and I had a pretty relaxing Pizza & Pool Friday. While the dough was in the bread machine we played some pool, ate, then played more pool. I really enjoy simple evenings like that. We just listen to music and catch up.

Working Hard on Saturday
This morning I was hoping to sleep in but was wide awake at 7:33. I briefly thought about a run, but the heat index was already 88 and the air was sopping wet. Ick. So I just piddled around, cleaning the kitchen and messing around with my blog layout. I finally got around to my workouts around 9:30. It was kind of nice not jumping feet first into the day.

I did chest and back today as supersets of 3x8 unless otherwise noted:

SS#1
Chest flye
Chest press (dumbbells)

SS#2
Incline chest flye
Incline chest press (dumbbells)

SS#3
Pullovers
Single-arm row (3x10)

SS#4
Underhand rows
Single-arm horizontal row

Weighted pushups - 16
Lat pulldowns with band - 2x16

I finished up with Cathe Friedrich's HIIT Pyramid and then abs from Muscle Max and a long stretch. It was a really good workout today, and I know I'm going to be feeling my pecs tomorrow ;-)

Chores, Pool Time & Sister Time
After my workout, I ate then did some more house chores. I don't want my sis to think I'm a total slacker when it comes to keeping my house clean. We bought some shades for "her" room that needed to be hung so she could actually sleep past 6 am. That particular room gets light from a street lamp then early morning sun. I aim to please when it comes to making sure she's comfy when she stays here.

I am not sure what we'll be doing for dinner this evening. She was really wanting pizza, so it might be another pizza night. I did buy stuff to try my hand at sushi, but Jason doesn't think we should be trying something new on Sarah without testing it ourselves first. If we do end up making pizza again, we'll try to do some totally different combos that we don't normally try.

What are your favorite pizza toppings or styles?

I hope everyone has had a great Saturday!
