My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!

Glad you came back.  Did you have a good weekend?  I did.  Kind of busy, kind of relaxing, kind of cold!!!  Wasn’t I just saying how unusually warm it was for the middle of October?  Well not anymore.  This morning when I went out for my jalk it was 39 degrees.  That is a little chilly.  Luckily, today is supposed to be the coldest morning this week.  I hope so.  The only good thing about the colder weather, I walk a LOT faster!  How is the weather where you are?

I started my new Aesthetics program this morning.  I think I am going to like this.  Today, this is what I did:  I did four sets, 5 reps of each

Barbell Squat   35 max wt

Romanian Dead Lift  30 max wt

Incline Bar Bell Press  15 max wt

Bent Over Row  25 max wt

Dumb Bell Shrugs  35 max wt

Bar Stadning Push Press  12 max wt

Dumb Bell Rear Fly  15 max wt

Straight Bar Curl  15 max wt

Dumb Bell Skull Crushers  25 max wt

Leg Raises

Calf Raises

Tomorrow there is something different I do, I just haven’t looked too far ahead yet.  I will post tomorrow what I do tomorrow, and then at the end of the week, I will post the max wt’s I get to on the above program.  I will keep you updated on this program, and if I like, and if I feel as if I am leaning out.

I really like Kombucha, and I am always looking for new and different flavors.  At the market this weekend, I found these:IMG_0022IMG_0026

The Lime Mint Coconut is fantastic.  I had to pace myself, it was so good I wanted to drink it all at once.  I am just going to try the Ginger Lemon today, but this caught my eye because it has Ashwagandha.  There are a lot of health benefits to Ashwagandha:

  • It’s an Ancient Medicinal Herb. …
  • It Can Reduce Blood Sugar Levels. …
  • It Has Anti-Cancer Properties. …
  • It Can Reduce Cortisol Levels. …
  • It May Help Reduce Stress and Anxiety. …
  • It May Reduce Symptoms of Depression. …
  • It Can Boost Testosterone and Increase Fertility in Men. …
  • It May Increase Muscle Mass and Strength.

And the Ginger Lemon just sounded good.  What is your favorite brand and flavor of Kombucha.  Let me know.

Saturday night our view of the sunset was absolutely beautiful.IMG_0021  One of the reasons we bought where we did, was the views we get.  As you can see, the sunsets are wonderful.

Ok, Football, I can finally say YAY, our Nebraska Cornhuskers won their game.  They played an awesome game, they looked good, and they played the entire 60 minutes.  What  game! They have an “added” game next week, this was not on the schedule, this was their bye week, but apparently, since their first game of the season was cancelled due to weather, they put this game on the schedule.  I hope they can do as good.

Now, we can see how the Atlanta Falcons play this evening.  Hopefully, they can get two wins in a row!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day.  It was a little chilly, and a little breezy, but we met OD for coffee and ended up sitting outside in the sun, and it was almost a bit warm.  Good thing I put sunscreen on everyday, or I might have gotten a sun burn.  It was gorgeous sitting out their and just enjoying the coffee.  It is always a joy to visit with OD.

My coffee make crapped out on me this morning and that sucked!  I can’t imagine why it did this, I think it is only about 8-9 years old and I use it almost EVERYDAY, sometimes twice a day.  Luckily, I had my French Press Coffee maker that I got by this morning with. First thing I did was get on Amazon Prime and ordered a new one.  Whew, I hope I can get it in a day or two!

Well gang, this is a little shorter post than I had planned on, but it is getting later and I still have some things I MUST get checked off my list.  (I have been getting a lot of work done this morning, but I am also trying to “collect” some dust and dirt from around our condo.  I don’t know where this stuff comes from, but I need to get at least a little more collecting done today)

So, until tomorrow, every one take care and come back tomorrow to see what I can come up with!
