Thursdays are my killer workout days.

 

This morning I was at the first gym, and worked out on 2 medicine balls, and then on 2 Bosu balls, one on top of another.  No, I never do the ordinary kinds of workout.  Then I went into my Zumba class.

At 2.30 I will be with my boxing trainer, doing 200 jab, jab, punch squat to begin, then several rounds, and if time allows another 200 to finish up.

This evening it is dancing, at our Fraternal Order of Eagles.  We have a live band, and tonight it is ‘Big Foot Band’.

When I get home, it is time to put my feet up, and watch a little television.

What do you do on a Thursday?

I apologize for my sideways on photos, as I usually have to take them myself.  Must get some more photos of me boxing.

KATEKATECAT Womens Shirts Short Sleeve T Shirt Round Neck Striped Color Block Casual Blouse Tees

Yesterday I wore the KATKATECAT Women’s Short Sleeve Top, as I was having an eye test, and buying new glasses.  It was really comfortable, as I did a lot of sitting, and waiting.

The top has a round neck, and 3 sections.  The top of mine is black, then white, and black strips at the bottom.  I like the short sleeves, and the slightly curved bottom to the T Shirt.  The material is 95% Cotton, and 5% Spandex, which makes for a very soft garment.

Sizes are from small to X large, and the colors, black, green, navy, and yellow.

This top is really smart, and I wore it again today, when I went for my monthly massage. It can be worn with shorts, Capris, leggings, jeans, or skirt.  Whether you are eating out, shopping, going for a walk, or just hanging out, this very feminine top will work for you.

The quality is excellent, and it can be machine washed on a cold cycle.  I like to hang up my clothes for them to dry.  That way no ironing is needed.

I did receive my top for free, and have fully tested it out, before writing my review of it.

MAUI RINGS ELEGANT Silicone Engagement Rings for Women Stackable Rings Silicone Wedding Ring for Women Silicone Bands Silicone Ring Wedding Band Womens Rings

I have bent my wedding, engagement, and eternity rings out of shape at the gym.  Stupid me lifted weights while wearing them.  I didn’t realize how soft gold is.

I have lost a couple of my silicone rings, so ordered the MAUi Engagement Rings, and Wedding Rings.  They arrived within a day of each other, and both are identical, even though I ordered them on different Amazon links.

Mine are 4 to each set, and the colors are black, blue, green, and purple.  There are other sets with different colors.  The sizes 4 through 9.  I have thin fingers so a 4 fits my wedding finger perfectly.

As I go to the gym every day, do boxing, lifting, flipping tires, as well as other forms of working out, I wear a silicone ring all the time.  I only put my gold rings on when going dancing, or somewhere special.

I find these are great, and don’t have to ward off any gentlemen, that might have thought I was single.

I did receive these 2 sets of rings at a discounted price, and can’t express how happy I am with them.

Was Amazon Prime Day a washout for you?

I wanted a product, and decided to order it around 3 p.m. yesterday, as Prime Day started.  Well of course Amazon couldn’t cope with the influx of customers.

Here are a couple of the photos, and notices that came up.  There were many more, and people were saying that they had never seen so many dogs in a short time.

Here are a few of the ones I got.  Were you able to buy anything yesterday?

PASITO KS3G KS Knife 3-Stage Sharpening Tool with Diamond, Coarse-Tungsten and Fine Ceramic Slots, 3 Groove

I received this knife sharpener a few days ago, and have used it before cutting pork. After sharpening the knife, it cut through the pork loin like butter.

It is a sturdy product, and doesn’t slip. It has 3 slots, and you pull your knife through each one, 3 times, to get a perfect blade.

Do this on a flat surface, and hold the handle, which is comfortable.

I even tried cutting frozen fruit, and it went through the easiest ever.  That’s great, because I use it often on breakfast, and in whey protein shakes.

I am very happy with it, and won’t be throwing any knives away in the future.

Sunday dinner is still English in this house.

 

 

 

 

Having moved to the U.S. 30 years ago, both my husband and I, lived a long time in England. He was 54, and I was 40 when we came here.

It doesn’t matter that the temperature is in the 90’s in Florida. I still had the oven on for 3 hours this afternoon.

Pork, stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, peas, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, and OXO (beef) gravy.

While the oven was on, I also made my husband 12 double sized no sugar added cupcakes.

This is a ritual, and although it may not be every Sunday, I cook this way as often as time allows. I have enough vegetables for several other meals, as I always eat healthy. My husband ate all his big dinner. I ate half, and it was amazing.

France 1 Croatia 0. Change that to 1 -1

I went to my Zumba class from 10 to 11 a.m., and was back home within 8 minutes.  I couldn’t miss Zumba two days in a row, but yesterday I went to the gym in the afternoon for boxing, and lifting weights.

So now I am here and the score at 20 minutes is 1 – 0 to France.

Personally I want France to win the FIFA World Cup as England, and Belguim couldn’t do it.  The reason being that Giroud played for our team, Arsenal, for years.  Also Croatia have been a dirty team throughout the tournament.

Just before posting this Croatia have just scored so drawing right now.  This will make for a very exciting game.

Cellucor Alpha Amino Ultimate EAA & BCAA Recovery Powder, Essential & Branched Chain Amino Acids for Post Workout Recovery, Blueberry Lemonade, 20 Servings

 

My boxing trainer is working on my muscle and stamina, so when I showed him the Cellucor Alpha Amino Ultimate Recovery Powder, he suggested I use it.  I had a chance to get it at a discounted price, and the flavor is Blueberry Lemonade.

You use 1 scoop either during, or after a workout with 8 – 12 ounces of water.  Shake well so that it mixes.  The taste is okay with me.  A little sweet, although there is no sugar, but artificial sweetener in the other ingredients.

I feel that I am building muscle all the time, as friends say that I look as if I have lost weight, but it is my shape that is changing.  I want to put good nutritional supplements in my diet, so that I know my body is getting everything I need.

Here is information from the Amazon web page:

  • Alpha Amino Ultimate goes beyond post workout recovery with 5g Instantized BCAAs & Essential Performance Amino Acid Complex.
  • Alpha Amino Ultimate packs 13 different amino acids in every scoop, including Micronized L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine at the clinically studied 2:1:1 ratio.

England 0 Belgium 1

In the 4th minute of the FIFA World Cup playoff for 3rd, 4th place, Belgium have scored a goal.  England did that, and then lost their game, so maybe this is a good omen for England.

I am English, and so wanted this to be the final.  I have said from day 1, that if England didn’t win, then I wanted Belgium to.

I am still in my dressing gown, on the recliner, having coffee, and was hoping to have a great morning.  To be truthful I am not disheartened.  I love the Belgium players, as so many play in the English Premier League, and if we can’t do it, then I am happy for them.

Zuozee Faux Leather Leggings, High Waist Stretch Pants, Elastic Tights Dark Leggings, Misses Leggings Velvet Warm

I bought the Zuozee Faux Leather Leggings as they were half priced, and figured they would be great for the winter months.

With regard to the sizing, it really isn’t that helpful.  It states: M-3XL Hip 40″-55″/W 30″-43″.  So I checked in the ‘Questions and Answer section’, and this is what I found:

Question: how do I choose a size, when ordering ?

Answer:
They are not true to size. If I am a medium.. I bought an XL.

I am usually a small, and almost didn’t buy them, but when I saw this, I figured medium should fit.  You can see in the photos my husband took that they are too big for me.  I thought about sending them back, but as I had ordered a medium, to me, it was my own fault.
The leggings are beautifully made, and the velvet lining, makes them so warm.  I am keeping them until the winter, and if they are still too big, I will give them to a friend of mine, who is a size 6 – 8.
