Gym day & Grilled Tofu Sandwiches

Gym Day
Today I hit the gym for another upper body workout. I did supersets of 3x8, starting with the elliptical for 10 minutes.

Pushups for warm up - 24

SS#1
Incline bicep curls
Underhand barbell rows

SS#2
Double-arm overhead triceps extension
Standing dumbbell shoulder press

SS#3
Staggered flat bench dumbbell chest press (start at top, pause halfway down, pause all the way down, pause halfway up, then all the way up = 1 rep)
Rear delt flyes

I did some ab work then another 10 on the elliptical. I had a pretty good weight workout. However, the weight area was super crowded today. Sometimes I'm amazed at people's lack of personal space.

Busy Busy Tofu Thursday
Tomorrow will most definitely be a rest day. I've actually gone over on my days worked in a row. I don't feel fatigued, like not desperate for a rest day, but I know it's time. Glad to be back on my Friday rest day schedule.

I have something fun planned for tomorrow night. Of course, that means I've got a lot to do to get ready for the fun. My lunchtime consisted of house chores, good times right? But I feel like I've got so much to do and no time to get anything done. I did get a lot knocked off the list today at least. Just need to finish one basket of laundry, swiffer, vacuum (which Jason offered to do), and mop.

Thankfully, errands have mostly been taken care of as well. Errands are always such a major time suck aren't they? Every once in a while I get lucky and they take less time than expected, but it's usually the opposite.

Anyway, while at home for lunch, I did manage to get some tofu pressing for Grilled Tofu Sandwiches. I took the easier route and just used a jarred marinade (Mango Ginger Habanero) that we really like for the marinade. It's not to hot and not too sweet - just right.



I served some the tofu on sandwich thins with spinach, roasted red bell peppers and almond cheese. Of course I made some sweet potato fries to go on the side. I swear I can't have a sandwich without my sweet potatoes. Is there a side that you associate with sandwiches or perhaps burgers?
