Yup, Bye Week terminated Schoeney’s Terminators last night. They are a long-time rival so beating them is extra important. They took us to 3 games. Our second game was a little sloppy and the third game reminded us of the recent Game 6 of the World Series. Obviously our team represented the Cardinals and their A-m-a-z-i-n-g “tied game” comeback.
After the game I went home and made yet another batch of almond butter granola and peanut butter granola. I accidentally left both in the oven longer than last time, but they both were deliciously crunchy. My first batches were chewy instead of the traditional “granola crunch” I was going for. Crunch = silver lining.
Dinner last night was random but delicious: chicken breast w/sauteed onions & green peppers baked with peppercorn/low fat feta, whole wheat couscous, and asparagus. YUM! I love anything with feta!
As promised, I completed my first TRX workout this morning. I didn’t do much – I didn’t want to overdo it since my body will be adjusting to the new workout. The idea is for a smooth transition not an “OMG I’m in so much pain” workout. I worked out my arms for only about 20 minutes this morning with different TRX arm workouts and by the time I had gotten in the shower, they were already feeling fatigued and tight. I love that any arm/leg workout with TRX also works your core too. Win-win. I’m definitely looking forward to the “extra boost” in my workouts. I was tired of the plateau – working out without the results!
Uh…Awkward…? Any awkward moments out there anyone cares to share? I hate to admit I kept to myself yesterday and today so there aren’t many awkward moments to share. Aside from awkward touching/colliding during last night’s game and the mysterious brown “mud” that was on our court. Poor Chris picked it up thinking it was a leaf…but then he couldn’t get it off his hands. I advised him NOT to smell his hand and NOT to touch to ball. Funny, right?! Not touching the ball during a volleyball game…tee-hee.
