Wrestling and Amazing Grass

Ballgame Recap with Midget Wrestling

Last night's game was much better than Thursday's game. It was still hot, but there was a stronger breeze blowing through that helped tremendously. Even better, we won. That certainly can't hurt. The game started later than the normal 7:10 start time because of Midget Wrestling. Yep, you read that correctly. This is Jason's day to go to the ballpark. We hadn't planned it this way, we just got "lucky." I think it's totally obnoxious, but he gets a big kick out of it. Here are a few pictures of the wrestling then of me and two of my friends and then me and Jason. I goofed and didn't get a picture of the guys.

Very intense moment.
No words to describe.

I have no idea why I am leaning in so far.
Thank you dear for putting the beer down for the picture.

Chest, Back, Abs Oh My
I kicked my day off with a good chest and back workout. I did drop sets of 4 sets of 8 decreasing the weight in between each set with no rest.

Dumbbell chest press
Dumbbell chest flyes
Incline dumbbell chest press
Incline dumbbell chest flyes
Double-arm rows
Underhand rows
Lat pulldowns with band 2x16

I then opted for Cathe Friedrich's HIIT Pyramid then abs from an oldie but goody, Power Hour.

Lazy Saturday
It was another scorcher so pool time was a must ;-) I lounged and read for a few hours while Jason mowed the weeds. I think the only things growing and green are weeds. Everything else is dead. I did managed to get through a few loads of laundry, swiffer the floors, and straighten up a bit - all done in my comfy PJs.

I also spent a good chunk of the day working on my blog. I have moved my "About Me" section to it's own page, still need a photo, and have started on the Recipes page as well. I had no idea I had so many recipes. This project may take me a while to complete. 

Since we didn't get to celebrate Pizza Friday, we'll be having Pizza and Pool Saturday. I plan on starting the dough while we play a bit of pool and just relax. Jason is supposed to be doing a triathlon tomorrow morning at Lake DeGray, so it will be a very low-key evening for us. He'll be getting up super early for the hour drive there. He hasn't registered yet either, so that means he has to get there even earlier than he normally would.

Amazing Grass Review
Recently I received a package from the folks at Amazing Grass to try. I have been seeing and reading a lot about their products recently, so I was really excited to give the a try. Here are the items I received:

Amazing Meal:
Chocolate Infusion
Original Blend
Pomegranate Mango Infusion

GREEN SuperFood:
All Natural Drink Powder
Berry Flavor Drink Powder
Chocolate Drink Powder
Organic Wheat Grass Drink Powder

4 Bars:
Whole Food Energy
Berry Whole Food Energy
Chocolate Peanut Butter

Today I decided to sample the Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar . It as 12 grams of protein and 270 calories and an amazing list of organic ingredients. I had no idea what to expect as I cut into the bar. It was an interest green on the inside, a bit scary to be honest. However, it tasted great. It wasn't terribly sweet, which was a good thing and not overly chocolaty either, another good think in my book.

Jason took a bite and said, "It tastes like health food." But that wasn't meant in a bad way mind you. You are eating it and can taste that it's not filled with a ton of over-processed crap basically. This particular bar had a slight raspberry undertone that was really a nice surprise. I can't wait to try the other samples now.

Do you have a particular favorite or any recipes using any of these products?

  • I received these products as free samples from Amazing Grass.
  • My reviews are (and will always be) my honest opinion of the product.
  • I will only choose to review products that I believe are healthy and fit into my lifestyle for healthy living.
