Meet my friend Sarah. She is ripped.

Exhibit A

Check out those biceps!

Sarah is a sweetheart as well as a great friend. After I posted about how clueless I was around the weights last week, Sarah immediately e-mailed me and asked if I wanted her to show me the ropes. Ummmm… Yes please!

She also promised with her help I could look like in 30 days or less! Ha!

Well… not really, but she did agree to meet me after work this afternoon for a quick lesson on arms and weights.

Sarah spent an hour breaking down a few basic rules for strength training with me. She explained which moves worked what arm muscles, how many sets should be directed towards those muscles, and how I should approach each session.

It was a lot to take in – good thing Sarah was writing most of it down so I could remember!

Tomorrow we’re attacking legs. This should be interesting!

Thanks Sarah for taking the time to teach me a thing or two in the gym today! Maybe next week I can break down some speed work outs on the track for you? 😉

I knew dinner was going to be late tonight, so before I left work I had a Bumble Bar.

By the time I did make it home it was close to 7:30 and I was STARVING! A quick and filling meal was a must!

I walked in the door and immediately put a sweet potato in the microwave for 5 minutes before taking Maddie out. By the time Maddie was ready to come back in, the sweet potato was done and just needed another minute in the microwave with some black beans and salsa.

I then quickly heated up some left over roasted asparagus

And toasted some bread

I was sitting down and eating dinner, before I even had time to take my shoes off or change my clothes. I was on a mission and my stomach thanked me for thinking of it first. 🙂

I had a mish mosh of chocolates, dried cranberries, and animal crackers for dessert.

Good Night!

A Little Out There

March 10, 2010

For the past year or so I have been drooling over the pumpkin butter and tempeh sandwiches that are some what regularly featured on Katheats.com. The combination of tempeh and pumpkin butter (or any sort of jam) seemed a little out there, which I believe only enhanced my need to try it. It has always more »

Waffles and Princesses

March 10, 2010

Good Morning! Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime working on my sister’s princess half video (it’s at the end of this post) and when my alarm went off this morning I did not want to move. If it wasn’t for Maddie and her never ending kisses I would probably still be in more »
