I have a charlie horse in my butt muscles


Friday, August 19, 2011

I seriously never, ever, ever thought that I would say that!

emoticon

I generally take a break in the afternoon and power walk for ten minutes. Behind the office is a nice steep hill and I have a route that takes me 3 to 4 circuits in 10 minutes (depends on walking partner or no walking partner). I am now incorporating my goofy shameless challenge into this walk. I skipped with a co-worker yesterday, wow that was a great workout!

emoticon

Today I grabbed a different co-worker and we did the route incorporating lunges.

emoticon

We only did 3 laps, not bad if I say so myself, and we both determined after the first attempt on lap one that we cannot do them for more than 10 times! I love this new exercise!

emoticon

I am getting some extra stretches in! I think this might turn into a Friday activity.

emoticon

On another note, I batch cook a lot of my foods and since I had one day off this week to cook, well I was determined to get some done! I have some salmon and thought, hmm that would be good grilled. So I pulled out the salmon to prep it. Yuck, it was a bad job packaging, fish was full of water and starting to fall apart. I will not be using this brand again! Luckily I raw feed, so dogs got a treat!

emoticon

I still wanted to grill something though, so I dug through the freezer and finally pulled out a portion from a pork loin. I pulled some tricks to get it defrosted, I am resourceful, and got the piece cut into some steaks, and since the middle was still frozen, I decided to marinate them. I used some balsamic vinegar, honey, dried sweet basil, dried garlic with a dash of olive oil. Let me tell you that those steaks are delicious! Moist and delicious! I had them for lunch yesterday and today with parmesan squash and some wild rice. Guess what is for lunch tomorrow.

Today has been a wonderful day! I got a lot accomplished and still managed to exercise.

    That marinade sounds yummy and bless you for giving that salmon to your beloved doggies! I'm sure they loved you even more (if that is even possible!!!) for such a wonderful treat!

Lunges with a co-worker? Hmmmmmm....now I've got to think of my goofy challenge for today. I'm not back to work yet so maybe I could just lunge while out for a walk?!

    Great job on the lunges! I've been teaching Dog to heel beside me while doing lunges - the first time, I burst out laughing at the look she gave me.

    Since I am still new at all this new sparkpeople exercise, I have been getting a lot in my calves. I have never even heard about one in the tush.

Your dinner - lunches sound great. I love fish on the grill, but my hubby doesn't. But he does love to grill and I love that!!

    Ooooow, I've had a charlie horse in the booty before. Not a pleasant feeling. Way to go on break time fitness. I try to squeeze some running with the kids before having to go back to the desk. emoticon

    I love that you have more than one co-worker who will accept your challenge to work in a little fitness. I'm still sore from all the extra strength training I had for a challenge that recently ended. It's a good hurt!
