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?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
