It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood and it's supposed to be beautiful all week. Yay! The roofers finished the roof and even though there was one minor snafu, all is well now.
I went to the gym on Saturday morning and in addition to my usual cardio routine I did some strength training on my legs:
Leg press: 100 lbs 3 sets of 15
Leg Extension: 55 lbs 3 sets of 15
Leg Curl: 45 lbs 3 sets of 15
Today, I can barely walk.
Where did I go wrong? Well, it's been a while since I've worked with weights on my legs and I should have started with lighter weights and higher reps. I am so miserable right now I can't stand it.
On the homefront, my kids are squawking about there being no meat on the menu. My position is that both of them are old enough to prepare something else if they don't like what I've provided for them. They can survive for 31 days. I made rigatoni with meatless meatballs on Friday night. Those meatballs were awful. I don't think I'm a meat substitute kind of gal. I'm going to try these "riblets" I picked up over the weekend and see how they are. I have a feeling they too will be awful. Other than that, I think I'm doing pretty well with this meatless journey. I don't have any serious cravings for meat at all. I drove by Buffalo Wild Wings on Saturday and thought about how awesome those wings are ... then the thought went away. Just like that.
