Welcome to Tuesday Today!
Today’s challenge was for me to write about where I’d like to be, and what the setting is like – I haven’t ever really succeeded at writing those. So, today, I am accepting the “twist” from the Writing 101 challenge, and trying to give more of a “setting” to my Tuesday Today.
I woke up this morning rather sleepy. But relieved about this:
I didn’t have to shower.
I was actually cold this morning, and so being able to go shopping without having to hop in the water was nice.
I stocked up on necessities and a few treats and ate this for breakfast:
I brought breakfast, but I was in the mood for one of these 🙂
When I returned, I did some different stuff – (not really descriptive, I know, haha). Eventually, with my ever-present companion, Rimfire, I went researching in my comfy spot. One of the pressing questions I had was was what the advantages and disadvantages of using a “bar soap” were. I had suspicions that they didn’t cleanse as well as liquid soap, as well as harboring germs.
Well, I read this:
Does Bar Soap Work Better than Liquid Soap by How Stuff Works.
And it ends up, there are no disadvantages to using bar soap. Yay!! It might harbor a little germs, but even with that, it cleanses the hands just as well as liquid soap. Bar soap advantages seem to me to outweigh the ‘advantages’ of liquid soap – Less waste, and (depending on the brand) for sure biodegradable, and (again depending on the brand) possibly better for skin with less chemicals. 🙂
So glad to know that using my new bar is good for me and the earth. Yes! I finally bought the Cofee-Almond Zumbar 🙂
Later, I made dinner, but because I was not quite hungry, I took the opportunity to do a workout. This one from the Purely Twins:
I used 6 pound weights (sometimes) and 3 pound weights mostly. I also used the B-fits modifications and it was good-hard, not too hard like I usually try to do, because I finally did it with the modifications. 🙂
Additional modifications I did: I wiped out yesterday, and scraped my palm, so not wanting to endure lots of pain, I used the 6 pound weight on the cross-over plank pulls so I didn’t need to put weight on my lower palm. Worked well! (Like this)
The hard thing for me, when I do “workout” – weightlifting, heartpumping – is that I don’t feel like eating after, really, and I know that it is advised to intake something to refresh the body, or something. So, I take advantage of these times when I am not hungry enough for my balanced, prepared meal so I can eat afterwards easily without having to think about what I need or if I need something post-workout.
I used this video for warming-up (I’m not very fastidious about doing warm-ups and cool downs, either), and stopped at like minute 3, ready to begin.
Afterwards, I cooled-down to this:
Fast 5-minute Cool-Down from Fitness Blender
While I was doing the workout, I remembered that it was Tuesday, and the idea for this post came to me. So now I am here; listening to music, and typing you. Howdy, there!
I hope you have had an enjoyable Tuesday, and have a great rest of the week 😀
What is something you enjoyed this Tuesday?
