I think I’ve mentioned before that husband’s aunt owns a bagel shop in Tennessee, and Karen brought us some bagels after a trip to visit her mother. I have always loved pumpernickel, so of course that’s the one I claimed
I topped him with smoked turkey, pepperjack (1 slice in half), and some mustard….
And stuck it under the broiler for a few minutes –
I tend to have half of a bagel shop (i.e. extra large) bagel at a time, as we all know how calorie dense they can be and I’d rather have more side items and toppings. But today I decided on the whole thing, open-faced to maximize flavor and chew ability. I also put it on the scale to see how many ounces these bagels are – 5.4 oz! That’s just over 400 calories not including any toppings. But the good news is big bagels are usually filling enough so you don’t need extra sides.
On the side I had carrots –
And a mango nectarine. It looks like a mango, but it sure tasted nectarine!
With Women’s Health. It was quite a filling lunch.
I made it to the gym around 11:30 and got in a nice regular workout: stairmaster , ET and weight lifting . When I lift weights I don’t do 3 sets of 10 or 12 and move in. I’m all over the place. Maybe 1 set of 20 on one thing, then 2 sets of 12 on another, 3 sets of 15 for something else. It helps keep me from getting bored if I know I can only do one set and move on if I just make it more weight. I did a combo of pull-ups (2 sets 10, 1 set 8), push-ups (2 sets 15, 1 set 10), chest (2 sets 8), shoulders (2 sets 15). I just move around until I get bored or tired – whichever comes first. It’s probably not the most ideal weight lifting routine, but the best weight routine is one you will DO so it works to keep me toned enough.
