Workout Wednesday: Adjusting circuits

Vegan Goodness:

Today we ate the following.

  • Breakfast: Smoothies for Dad and LP and the last of the Oatmeal-Apple panckes for everyone.
  • Mom had a late morning treat of . . . ice cream!  Specially, the soy chocolate fudge ice cream at JP licks topped with oreos.  Yum!
  • Lunch: LP had the rest of the peanutty pasta and Mom and Dad each had a veggie burger.  Mom was missing half a bun thought because LP wanted some toasted bun with butter.  The toddler wins again!
  • Dinner: Kale, Mushroom and Udon noodles in Miso Broth (from Veganomicon).  We convinced LP to eat the kale by bribing him with more mushrooms.  Go figure
  • Mom and Dad munched on some chocolate chips for dessert.

Money Matters:
Today we spent the following:

  • $30.00 for our CSA box.
  • $6.15 for Mom’s ice cream treat

Workout Wednesday

I’ve adjusted my circuits to something that I’m finding a bit more manageable to do when I’m in charge of both kids.  Now, instead of doing the workout with weights, I’m just doing three exercises: push-ups, squats and crunches.  This is working well for me now because a) I’m able to do squats and crunches again (tried doing them a few weeks ago and paid for it in pain later) and b) they can be done without weights that might fall on my toddler since he is always underfoot when I am working out.

So, my goal is to fit five of these circuits in three days a week.  However, I’m not stressing about doing all five at once since I usually only get through 2 or 3 before I have to take care of something kid-related.  I’m trying to just get in a couple more rounds later in the day.

Quick-n-Easy Circuits:

  • 5 push-ups
  • 10 squats
  • 5-10 crunches
