My Leg Day Workout

I love leg day. It’s usually short but sweet, and packs a large punch. This is a good indicator of how fit my legs are based on the amount of soreness felt, three whole days later. Since it has been a while, I eased back into the workout routine.

I completed the following:

1 warm-up set x 65lbs x 10 reps

3 working sets x 75lbs x 10 reps each set

2 sets of deadlifts x 75lbs x 10 reps each set

Not too shabby for being rusty!

How do you feel after leg day?

Heat wave part 2: Creamy Lemon Dressing Recipe

We’ve been having unusually hot weather and today is the record at 93 degrees with no wind. I can’t think in this kind of heat, my brain starts to shut down and get sleepy 🙂

Needless to say my house is super hot and I don’t feel like cooking. So we made a salad with a creamy lemon vinaigrette dressing, accompanied by a cool turkey sandwich with cheese and cold tomato slices. For dessert, we had frozen red grapes. They were so cold in my mouth, like little mini Popsicles. They definitely hit the spot.

If you are faced with a heat wave and are faced with making a salad for dinner.

Beat the heat with this refreshing drink

I don’t know about other parts of the country but we’ve been having an unusually warm summer here in the Pacific Northwest. More like a mini-heat wave, if you can call a few weeks of 85-90 degrees a heat wave 🙂 All this hot weather has me thinking of different ways to beat the heat starting with cool drinks.

I thought the same thing and figured it would have a curdling effect. But I assure you it doesn’t. It tastes like a vanilla caramel syrup. It is super smooth and worthy of pouring on a tall stack of steamy pancakes. It takes about 10 minutes total to make and serves 4-6 people. Try it, you won’t be disappointed….
