In what has become a Wednesday tradition, we had grilled steak and potatoes for dinner tonight. I have to say this is a yummy and nutritious meal. In fact, it’s an absolutely amazing! Clearly, it’s even better since the Hubby makes it while I go to yoga. This week we grilled top sirloin steaks and filet mignons from Omaha Steak. Everything was so good that no sauce was needed. Incidentally, I had ordered them when you couldn’t find meat anywhere. Now with meat plants closing down in the Midwest, I’m really glad I did.
While the grill master was preparing an epic mid week meal, I was at yoga. And by at yoga, I mean attending virtually via Zoom. Wednesday’s class is with Christine of Movement Yoga. I love this class because it’s as functional as it is spiritual and physical. Truly, this class has helped me reopen my muscles and soft tissue in a way I’ve never experienced. Today’s class was all about the lower back and it was delicious. Some how Christine always knows what I need on a given day. In addition to the therapy balls, we did a great flow with plenty of twists, which I love.
Christine’s class was a nice compliment to my BBG arm workout from this morning. Maybe it’s just me, but I think the program has really ramped you in week 9. There were plenty of challenging, but productive exercises today. You know what I’m talking about. These are the exercises that make you cry as your doing them because they suck. However, you know these are exactly the exercises you need to take your fitness to the next level. A couple of these exercises were new this week. Fortunately, the app features good visual for each workout. Needless to say by the end of the fourth circuit my tempo was lagging.
Post workout the dogs and I went out for a couple of walks. Today’s weather was absolutely beautiful. Our humidity and heat disappeared overnight. It was a comfortable 68 degrees this morning compared with the sultry 80 degrees of Tuesday morning. Of course, I ran yesterday and will run tomorrow morning. I’m hopeful that the cooler weather will at least last through my run tomorrow morning. My afternoon indulgence was watching a new episode of Balthazar. This show is so good!
As for our evening, we sat outside as the food finished. In fact, Goalielocks came out and completed some of his work with us. It was a beautiful evening. After dinner, Goalielocks worked with Anakin on training. Since everything is closed down, we’ll be responsible for ensuring Anakin is a well trained dog.
Here’s a list of our day’s activities:
*Reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë and loving it!
*Mid Week Yoga Break with Christine from Movement Yoga
*Started reading Success Factors by Jack Canfield
*Watched Balthazar Season 2 episode 3
