Ah, running tights! I had totally forgotten about those! They don't hide a thing do they. Well, let them look! Most people are probably just wishing they could run as they trudge along on the boring old treadmill. Good luck in your race!

I did track in HS and 1st yr of college, threw discus and shot but I did quite a lot of running with the rest of the team too. I used to have a pair of hot pinkish orange running tights and purple ones too, in high school. I think we used to wear boxer shorts over them, it was the early 90s in upstate NY, what else can I say...Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

On Saturdays I am continuing to run 3-5 miles because I am running a 5K race later this month. I was all ready to go running outside this morning, and then I opened up my door...and it was raining.

Soooo....I went to the gym and ran 5K on the treadmill. Wearing my running tights. I don't mind wearing them outside and people just pass me by, but on the treadmill I felt like people were staring at my rear end the whole time. Those running tights don't hide anything, lol.

Today's Menu

breakfast/post workout: 1 scoop whey, granola bar
lunch: turkey sub sandwich on wheat
snack(s): banana, almonds, cashew butter on a wasa cracker
dinner: tuna melt on flax bread, vegetable soup
I remember the first time I wore running tights to the gym at work. I caught a glimpse of my bum and saw that the harsh lights showed up every little detail of my pant and wobbly bum. Now I wear black pants so it's not so bad. And my bum has firmed up a bit so all in all, a lot less hideous these days!

Hi Ma, I originally got the recipe from a cookbook but here's how I make it:

1/2T butter or olive oil
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large carrots, diced
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
10 oz box frozen spinach, defrosted (don't drain)
1/2 cup lentils*
1/2 cup brown basmati rice
4 cups water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an oven proof dutch oven, heat butter or oil. Add onion, cook 4 minutes. Add garlic, cook 1 minute. Add carrots and seasonings. Cook for a few minutes.

Add the spinach and it's liquid and cook for a few minutes. Then add lentils and brown rice. (*The recipe calls for green lentils, but my package just says "lentils" and they are a greenish-tan color.) Stir to mix everything completely. Add the water, put a lid on the dutch oven and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes.

This makes 4 good sized servings. It freezes and reheats well.

Default Day 8

Ignore the title, I meant Day 9!

"I feel you, you're closing down, yeah
Get close, talk right through me
Get close, keep tight with me
If you fall now it could be forever"

Subway, by Peter Murphy


For the first week, my nutrition went along swimmingly. Then on Sunday I had a treat meal. I read somewhere that after you eat a high fat meal you can crave fatty foods for the next 3 days, and I'm pretty sure that's what is going on here. I have been so itchy and snack-y!

Last night I made 2 different kinds of treats for a bakesale/fundraiser at work. I made black bean brownies as a "healthy" treat, and chewy-o's as an "unhealthy" treat. I let the kids sample a little of each and my son preferred the chewy-o's, but my daughter preferred the brownies. I am curious to see which ones sell better today.

If I forgot to mention it, weights listed are per hand, unless it's obviously a BB or BW exercise.

Today's Workout

TT for Meatheads V - Workout B

Superset #1
DB chest press (30 lbs) 3x10
Chin up with knee up (BW) 3x10*

Superset #2
EZ bar close grip press (48 lbs) 3x8**
Hanging knee raise (BW) 3x12

Superset #3
Decline push ups (BW) 3x15
[beginner] underhand inverted row (BW) 3x15

*Did chin up with knee up for as many as I could and finished set with just knee ups

**Both BB's were in use so I grabbed an EZ bar for the set

Intervals
4 minute warm up
24 seconds hard, 36 seconds easy x 6
2 minute cool down

It probably is good for me, but it sure makes me crave more foods. Not necessarily bad foods either - just things like too much peanut butter, etc. Sure wish I could remember where I read that so I could go back and read it again!

Funny you mentioned that, Rob. I've considered getting the individual Justin's nut butter packets from Whole Foods going forward b/c I can't seem to control myself around a jar of nut butter. To easy to go back for spoon after spoon. Boy is that stuff tasty! Almond butter, peanut butter, macadamia nut butter, cashew butter...Mmmmm... ;-)
