Workout and Word of the Day #49

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Friday is here, but I got some sad news this morning.  I found out that my best friend Kathy passed away in January.  I did not find out until this morning because I have been living in a different state.  It made me feel so thankful that my friends Diana, Mica, and myself made it a point to call Kathy and wish her a happy New Year on New Year’s Day.  It still feels so unreal that she is really gone…

Today’s Workout: Legs & Back

  • DB Hip Thrust 3 x 10
  • DB High Step up 3 x 8
  • DB Swing 3 x 20
  • Side Plank Hip Raise 10

Exercise | 4 x 10

  • 45 degree single arm row

Super set | 3 x 10

  • 10 Reverse incline trap press
  • 10 Cross body single-arm wide row

Super set | 3 x 10

  • 10 Revers fly
  • 10 Rotating bent over row

Burnout Complex | 2 sets

  • 10 wide bicep curls
  • 10 front bicep curls
  • 10 hammer bicep curls

It was a great workout and I worked up a good sweat, but I was not able to lift as heavily as usual because my right wrist has been sore and I do not want to jeopardize my technique and risk further injury by lifting too heavy.


Today’s Word of the Day is:

brummagem– adjective

  1. Not genuine; spurious; also: cheaply, slowly, tawdry

This is the first time that I have ever heard of this word.  It is nice to learn something new everyday!

I felt sad throughout the day, but am hanging in there and I am glad that I made time for my workout.  I also made it a point to go outside for a walk.  I thought that I would write a blog post about my friend, but I think the shock and loss is still too fresh…

I also feel sad about the fact that I do not have pictures with Kathy in my media collection here in this blog.  I once had a prolific photo album in my last facebook (that got deleted) and back when Kathy and I were spending lots of time together, I never used to show pictures of myself or my friends on this blog.

It is okay though.  Here memory will live on forever…

On another note, I had sushi for lunch (post workout) a broccoli cheddar bowl for a snack, and wings and pizza for dinner.  It will just be a today thing.  Tomorrow I will be back on track!
