It’s a vacation week here in Holland and my manager is on vacation. I had pretty catched up on my work yesterday and decided to take a vacation day today. I went to see my Mom this morning. Bella didn’t want to come home with me, she wanted to stay with my Mom whom she adores. It took some serious talking to get her in the car.
Now I’m watching the team pursuit speed skating. We have had the most successful Olympic games ever. We have 22 medals so far which has never happened before and I expect we will at least add 2 more tomorrow in the final for the team pursuit for both the women and the men.
Sunday Bella and I are going for another organized walk, this time we will do 12K (about 7 miles). The walk is tomorrow and Sunday and since the weather forecast for Sunday is better we are going on Sunday.
Hope you all have a nice weekend.
Beebox content week 8:
Eggs, Jerusalem artichokes, apple juice, apples, red beets, flower sprout, mushrooms, parsnip, pears, beef meat, onions, salad, smoked mackerel and celery.
Flower sprout, ever heard of it? (it’s in the top right of the box). I didn’t and looked it up on the internet. It is a new vegetable something between kale and Brussels sprouts, I’m curious if it will taste good.
Wednesday: P90X Plus – Interval Plus
Nice workout with short interval workouts, most exercises were 20 seconds slow, 20 seconds moderate and 20 seconds high speed. No weights necessary. I really like this workout.
Total time: 30 minutes.
HITT 15: 15 minutes of high intensity training, I love this workout because it’s only 15 minutes. After this I did the 10 minute Stretch which I love too. I don’t stretch enough, just don’t take the time for it but when I do it feels so good.
Total time: 28 minutes.
