12/13/07 Log: Potluck Day!

Yesterday’s Shapeshift relative PC workout, which included max reps of bodyweight reverse lunges, and Monday’s new exercise, good mornings, have officially caused me yet ANOTHER week of DOMS! My lower hamstrings refuse to lengthen completely at the moment, and I see a LOT of stretching breaks in my near future.

Seriously, does this workout program ever let up?

It’s company potluck lunch day at n-Space, which means that very little work will be done between 12 noon and 3 pm due to the feeding frenzy and subsequent lethargy caused by overeating that always follows. Considering that the company is comprised of mostly geeky males between the ages of 20-35, you might be wondering if half of the entrees are burnt while the other half came straight out of a box of frozen appetizers, but the n-Space potlucks always turn out to be WAY better than any (icky!) traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas spread I’ve ever had. The sheer volume and variety is staggering, and of course there’s no such thing as moderation when a bunch of GUYS are gathered around the trough.


I made some terribly evil macadamia coconut chocolate chip cookie bars from a Rachael Ray recipe and my popular standby, Chinese beef noodles. I’m using bean thread/cellophane noodles this time instead of the traditional flat noodles, and actually cooked the beef and broth overnight in a slow cooker as an experiment. (8 hours on the low setting, in case anyone was curious. It turned out perfectly.)

I’ll be getting my workouts in tonight as soon as I get home from work, then packing for the weekend trip to Philadelphia for the eHarmony shoot.

I have so little in the way of winter clothing nowadays that I may have to unpack my Army issue gortex gear to survive the temperatures up there, I kid you not.
