Dogs, dogs, everywhere and back to the gym

September 30, 2009

Welcome to my special guest:

BUFORD the miniature schnauzer!


Buford a.k.a. Bufie is my parents dog.  My parents went on a little vacay so Bufie stayed at my bro’s on Monday and Tuesday since he is off those days, and then my bro dropped him off here until tomorrow night to play with his “cousins”

Prince is jealous


My bro and the dogs scrounging for food!


What’s that I see? A sweet Lake Carroll Triathlon T-shirt! I was excited to get to wear it on my first day back to the gym today.


I spent this morning studying and took a break for a quick snack of an apple and an 80 calorie pepper jack string cheese.  Chopped up for maximum snackiness!

I went back downstairs and kept on studying, and finally decided to break for the gym before Buford showed up.  I had a snack before I went.

A whole grain tortilla heated in the microwave for 30 seconds, spread with hummus, and chopped up half an avocado.  I took a bite before the pic! OOPS!

This was a REALLY delicious snack that fueled me up for a workout!


I headed to the gym to do a nice light run on the treadmill since my knees still are stiff and achy.

I ended up doing 2 miles on the treadmill and then did 2 sets of 15 reps of the following:

Shoulder press 12 lbs

Hammer curl 12 lbs

Overhead tricep extension 15 lbs

Upward row 12 lbs

Alternating bicep curls 12 lbs


41 minutes total (run plus strength)

380 calories

150 average HR

179 max HR

I currently have some spicy turkey sausage tomato sauce in the crockpot and a spaghetti squash in the oven.  Check back tomorrow on the blog for the recipes!

I think Buford made himself at home:
