Ready to be done
I'm on the last coat of the second armoire and I did a little test on the backing I'm going to use for it and am happy to report it appears my idea is headed in the right direction. I can't wait to share it with you guys! More importantly, it'll mean I'm 3/4 of the way done and I'll be moving on to the dining table which will be the final piece o' the remodel puzzle of what I committed to doing. I can't tell you how happy I will be to not have to be stuck in that sweatbox of a garage. The humidity makes it 100x worse. Gross summer project.
Yesterday, lunch consisted of a tuna fish sammie with arugula on whole wheat butts and my usual fruits and veggies. When I feel fancy pants, I like to add ground black pepper, garlic powder and rosemary to it and given I only had butts left in that loaf, I wanted to spruce it up on the innards. 500 calories of yum.
It was strength night and I had just read Chalene Johnson's blog about three components that should be part of your exercise program and number three hit a chord. I was thinking I needed a bit of a change up on the strength, so I grabbed her Turbo Jam set and put in Turbo Sculpt. I can't believe we've had it for 9 years and never done that. Or if we previewed it, I'm sure at the time I thought it was way too hard. OMG, it seriously kicked my butt! I couldn't even use 15 lbs, I had to cut back to 10's because she was doing high reps. My arms are like j-e-l-l-o today! Lots of squats in there too so I'm sure I'll be be hobbling around like Hoggle from Labyrinth. But for 490 calories burned, I'll take it.
Dinner was lemon pepper orange roughy over quinoa duo and berbere green beans.
490 calories of energy being snarfed by my body after that workout!
Nightmare on Elm Street was on and I figured why not. After all, it's our introduction to Johnny Depp. (I'm about to watch him get swallowed up by his bed and shot to the ceiling in a bloody pulp.) The Mr and I lamented how quickly that franchise got campy. I was obsessed with the second one because I had a crush on Jesse and Grady. It wasn't until I watched the documentary Never Sleep Again that I realized just how much innuendo was in it. I watch it now and kind of cringe but laugh hysterically too.
Any projects you're almost done with?
What's your favorite horror movie franchise?
