Lazy Sunday

Hubby Does Triathlon, I Do Weights & Boxing
This morning Jason got up super early to head down to Lake DeGray for this triathlon. I feel like the bad wife, I stayed behind and slept in until about 8 am. He gave me the OK to stay home for this one though. He hadn't been training like he normally would and knew it wouldn't be his best race. However, for someone not properly training and with the heat we had again today, he came in 36 over all out of approximately 180. I know he's not really happy with his time in general, but I am still proud.

I got up and did legs today with a quad focus. I did drop sets of 4x10 unless noted.

Squats
Static Lunges
Step Ups
Squats with low-end pulse - 8 single, 4 3-count pulse, 2 7-count pulse, 8 single
Static lunges with low-end pulse - 8 single, 4 3-count pulse, 2 7-count pulse, 8 single
Fire walkers - 8 reps
Side slide lunges - 3x10
Outer thigh raises with ankle weights - 24 single, 16 little pulse, 24 single

I finished the workout off with Cathe Friedrich's MMA Boxing and a long stretch.


Major Lazy Sunday

After my workout, I ate then headed outside for some more patio and pool time (and reading). I was pretty lazy today with the exception of my workout. After Jason got home, he wanted to go eat at Vino's. So that's what we did. One of our friends (who also did the race this morning as well) joined us. We just sat back and relaxed for a few hours doing some major people watching and catching up.

I had really planned on spending some time in the kitchen making seitan and possibly veggie burgers. But right now we can't get the kitchen below 81 degrees without any cooking going on. So, needless to say, boiling beans and seitan would definitely not be a pleasant thing. We are supposed to have cooler weather by Tuesday - as in highs only being 96. I am really hoping this pans out so I can get some cooking done. We are completely out of veggie burgers right now, and I really want to have some extra seitan on hand as well.

Dinner tonight will likely end up being some sort of salad. We probably not going to do any grilling, but we'll see. Because we had such a late lunch, I don't know what time we'll even feel like eating.  It's really hard to even get excited about cooking and eating when it's so hot. My appetite has taken a total nose dive to be quite honest.

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!
