Century swag!

Have you ever counted to 15?  Pretty easy, right?  How is it that when you have to count to 15 while doing reps at the gym then it is significantly harder?  I don’t know either! AL and I hit the gym hard after church last night.  Originally I wanted to do 5 miles on the treadmill in an effort to increase my weekly mileage.  No way, Santa Fe!  The treadmill just bores me to death so I decided to make up my own workout.  I dubbed it the century workout.  Betcha can’t guess why.

1.00 mile on treadmill
100 leg lifts
100 bicep curls
100 tricep rows
100 jumping jacks
100 squats
100 lat pulldowns
100 push up position hand slaps (with partner) 

We got that SWAG.

Needless to say I could barely move today, but the weather has been so warm that I just could not condone taking a rest day.  Momma and I walked a glorious 5 miles today with Big Sis and pushed a baby stroller while doing it! 

I’ve still been experimenting like woah in the kitchen.  Today’s menu?  Seared steak and pepper porkchops with yellow rice.  Yummo.  Like anything I do, it was super simple.

Steak and pepper porkchops

  • Thin slice porkchops
  • Low sodium steak seasoning
  • Ground red pepper

Just coat the chops in both seasoning and stick on a medium-high skillet for four minutes each side.  Voila.

All I did for the rice was buy whole grain boil in a bags then added it to a pot with 1/2 cup boiling water.  After about two minutes of it boiling I just added a low sodium chicken broth then let it simmer for about 15 minutes. 

Sup new food?

Tell me about your day! The weekend is almost here!  What are some workout circuits you have made up for yourself at the gym?  Are you a fan of porkchops??  Any cool ideas for making them even tastier?

    Yesterday, I took a class at my work called Hard Core, and I can barely move today! It was SO intense in a good way! WOW!

    • please react on this atircle below…tnx in advance?Exercise is More Important Than Calcium Supplements for BonesMonday, September 18, 2006A study making recent news concluded that taking calcium supplements does not do much to reduce bone fractures in childhood or later life. The study did not cover all reasons, but it does not stand alone. Studies over many years show that bone density depends on more than eating calcium. Calcium loss occurs through smoking, drinking too much alcohol and soda, lack of exercise, and eating animal protein. A young person can thin their bones through bad habits to the equivalent of an elderly person.Bone density when you are older depends on what you are doing now. Sedentary lifestyle is a major risk for osteoporosis and fractures. Exercise thickens bones from the muscles pulling on them. Without exercise, you can lose bone density no matter how much calcium you eat. Without exercise, you “pee” the calcium you eat back out. You need to give calcium a reason to stick on your bones.Even if you are a young man you need to build bone now. Osteoporotic hip and spine fractures are a major cause of illness and death for both women and men. One in eight men over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture, greater than his risk of prostate cancer. The death rate in the year following a hip fracture is nearly twice as high for men as for women.Research in elder populations shows ability to increase bone density with exercise. Weightlifting is often mentioned as needed. People think they need to go to a gym or buy hand weights for home use. Weightlifting includes lifting groceries, children, and packages around the house. Weight-resisting activity includes moving, pulling, and lifting your own body weight. You can load your upper leg at the hip, a major site of osteoporosis, by bending right using your legs for all the many times you need to bend every day. Go to Disc Pain – Not a Mystery, Easy to Fix for tips. Future posts will show more bone building exercise from daily activities.Several vitamins and minerals in fruit and vegetables help bone density. Calcium also needs vitamin D to work. Sunlight is an often forgotten source. Sunlight is necessary for your immune system, bones, mood, and overall health. There are some who say there is no safe sun exposure. Balance your time of exposure to reduce risk of cataracts and skin cancer. Get out of your chair and get outside in the sunshine for exercise every day.
