Crazy Mikey, A Leg Workout, and Recent Eats

Someone would like to say hello:

I think Mikey has missed his frequent appearances on the blog. He’s still just as cute and playful as ever, and he still drives me totally crazy sometimes. I’m telling you, he really is like a child.

This morning I caught some shots of him trying desperately to get to a grasshopper that made its way onto my window screen.

This is precisely why I do not open the windows in my apartment. With the way he tries to pounce on anything and everything that he sees outside, it would take approximately 0.3 seconds before he would be knocking the screens out and flying through the window.

Actually, I’m not sure if I ever posted the picture, but did anyone see the Spider Cat photo of him I sent to Funny Cat Site last year?

Climbing High

That window happened to have a screen on the inside (it rolled out to open). At night time when I had that light on near the window, moths would all flock to the area and it would drive Mikey absolutely crazy. He would jump around and climb all over the screen trying to get to them. So funny!


Alright, enough about my cat. I actually want to share a leg workout that I did yesterday morning! I warmed up with thirty minutes on the elliptical and then did the following routine at my apartment gym:

  • Squats 3 sets x 15 reps
  • Lunges 3 sets x 10 reps (each leg)
  • Lying leg curls 3 sets x 12 reps
  • Leg extensions 3 sets x 12 reps
  • Deadlifts 3 sets x 12 reps
  • Calf raises 5 sets x 20 reps

For the squats and calf raises, I didn’t use any weights. I’m so out of shape that my body weight was plenty good enough for me to feel the burn! My legs are sore today but not as sore as they were after I did that Awesome August workout last week, which is perfectly fine by me. I like being sore, but I don’t like being sore to the point that it is actually painful to walk. It’s just too uncomfortable at work when I have to stand and walk around all day.

Anyways, as far as recent eats go, I am still on my egg and goat cheese kick for breakfast.

I don’t know what it is, but I am totally obsessed with goat cheese. It’s pretty much to the point where I can’t eat eggs without it, and I don’t really care for any other cheese that they put on salads (i.e., feta). You can’t really see it in the photo below, but that little two-egg omelette is packed full of the good stuff!

I’ve also been enjoying fresh fruit with my eggs in the morning when I have it on hand.

As far as lunches go, lately I’ve reverted to plain old turkey and cheese sandwiches. You guys know I get on “kicks” with my packed lunches, where I eat the same thing for weeks and weeks before getting sick of it and moving onto something else. Lately, I’ve been all about the turkey sandwich! I usually pair it with a yogurt, string cheese or granola bar, and some fruit. Here’s today’s lunch that I packed up this morning:

(I’m out of fruit right now – sad day!)

I also love that it takes about 10 seconds to assemble this lunch. That’s how I roll!

About once a week or so, typically on the days that I don’t go into work until 1:00, I treat myself and order lunch from my favorite sandwich place, Rolling Farms Café.

Yesterday I got my favorite – The Napoleon (minus tomato/onion). It is served on a warm croissant and comes with turkey, some sort of cheese, lettuce, and I believe mayo and honey mustard.

They have the best soups, too. My favorites are the broccoli cheddar and the roasted butternut squash, but yesterday I decided to try to the cream of mushroom.

Yummmm!

I’m pretty excited because today is actually like Friday for me. I took a couple days off work this week and tomorrow I’m heading down to Grand Rapids to visit with some old friends from pharmacy school. Then on Saturday we are all going to a friend’s wedding in Bad Axe. Should be fun!
