green belt testing

Skiing, Rope Climbing, Hunger Games and Green Belts.


Aunt Sasa offered to take Cole skiing today, probably for the last time this season, so we got up and had to go rent some ski’s.

Breakfast: sourdough toast w/pb and jam

Keller and I dropped Sasa and Cole off at the Canyon’s and then headed to the gym.  Keller put me through an upper body circuit:

Pyramid supersets (pyramid means 10 reps, then 9, then 8, etc all the way down and then all the way back up-I only went down, superset means 2 exercises done together one after the other)

1st superset pyramid

-incline bench press 20lb DB’s

-seated curls to overhead press 15lb DB’s

random exercise in the middle of my workout…my hamstrings were really tight so I took a 40lb barbell and did 20 straight leg deadlifts

2nd superset pyramid

-standing cable flys 20lb

-1 min rope pull (a really cool machine I had never done before…great for cardio or strength cause you can adjust the resistance) here’s a pic…

Came home and made my usual.

Cole had the best time skiing with Sasa…it was a beautiful day and super warm, so warm in fact that their coats were off before they even got off the first chairlift.

The rest of the day pretty much went like this…sit on the couch and watch tv for 3 hours, taekwondo, dinner, back on the couch, and then bed.

Snack while chillin’ on the couch: 1/4C starburst jelly beans (we had to start portioning them out in serving sizes after Sherilynn and I ate an entire bag in one night last week)

Dinner: chicken gyros click HERE for the recipe, the only thing I changed is we used rotisserie chicken and I added cucumbers

My mom bought my dad the best pie for his birthday last night and luckily there were leftovers to enjoy again!


Busy day!  Started out with my last Friday spin class :(

Pre-workout: 1tsp PB and 1/2 banana

My teacher was surprised to hear that I wouldn’t be joining his class for awhile…I will definitely miss his class!

Usual post-workout: protein pancake and green greek smoothie

And since today was the opening day of the HUNGER GAMES and since none of us in this house have a JOB (currently)…we went to see the 1pm showing.

LOVED IT!  I read the books a long time ago which was good because I wasn’t thinking about all the stuff they changed.  No pics, but I snacked on 2 handfuls of popcorn, about 10 jelly beans, 1 licorice, and 1/2 a balance bar.  After the movie we had to go pick up Cole from school early and head down to Salt Lake for taekwondo testing.  Snacked on an apple and some nuts during testing.

So proud of Cole for passing his test and earning his green belt!  And cousin Justice earned his orange belt and received another medal!  We went to Five Guys Burgers to celebrate afterwards.  I should have split my burger and given half to Keller because I am now sick.  I even thought about it while I was eating it, how I was full and didn’t really want anymore, but my eyes just kept saying “you are really hungry eat it”.  So I did!  And then Menchie’s froyo was right next store so of course we had to go there.  The kids loved making their own yogurts with toppings.  Uncle Keller was throwing away the trash and almost threw away Will…jk!

This was my “I’m so full I feel like I’m going to barf so please don’t take a picture of me” look, he did not get the hint!
