I have the cutest husband ever. I mean, I already knew that, but he is constantly surprising me! I’ll share the latest story, but first my workout from this morning. It was shoulders day and I was excited to have more time at the gym instead of being rushed like I usually am. Find the original workout here. My version is below:
Week 5 Day 5: Shoulders
- Barbell Overhead Shoulder Press : warm-up 3 sets of 10 reps (30 pounds)

- Lateral Raise: 3 sets of 10 reps (10 pounds)
- Rear Delt Cable Flyes: 3 sets of 10 reps (5 pounds each side)
- Cardio: 30 minutes (step-mill)
I read the latest issue of Fitness magazine while on the step-mill and it made the time fly by! Love when that happens. Back to Jonny. Remember when I
dragged took him to that Raw Vegan cooking class? Well, another one of the five million things that the class made me want was a ceramic knife. The chef explained that ceramic knives are a lot sharper than the traditional steel knife and stay sharper for longer, as well.
Anyway, the day after Valentine’s Day, there was a present sitting on our kitchen counter. I was confused since Jonny and I had already exchanged gifts. I asked him why he got me another gift as we are trying to be better about money as we just bought a house and all. He told me if I didn’t like it then I could return it. I opened…
A Kyocera Santoku Knife! Plus, it’s pink and $5.00 will now be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Double bonus! I asked Jonny how he knew I wanted this, and he replied, “Ya know, I do listen to you!” So sweet. 🙂
Another awesome fact about this knife is it’s purity. I didn’t even know was a factor until I read the back of the box: “Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. Unlike steel knives, ceramic blades will not transfer metal ions to food, nor corrode from acids or oils in fruits and vegetables. Ceramic will never ever rust.” I had no idea and am now kind of grossed out by steel knives. Oh well, live and learn. The ceramic knife is super lightweight and can break if dropped, so I made sure to tell Jonny that this knife is for me-only. How nice, right? He didn’t mind since I do most of the cutting of fruits and vegetables for us anyway. I can’t wait to try it out and will be sure to provide an update! After I opened the knife, I found a little card:
Worst handwriting ever, so in case you can’t decipher the chicken scratch, it reads: “Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you. Please give the penny back to me.” And yes, Jonny actually taped a penny inside. Hilarious! The lady at Williams-Sonoma told him an old wives tale states that if you give someone a knife, then they must give a coin in return or your love/friendship will be broken. And it’s funny because my grandmother gave us a set of knives and made me give her a coin, too! I like that I’m so loved. 🙂 I obviously gave the penny back and did not return the present.
Have you ever used a ceramic knife before?
