Good Morning. Oh wait, it is almost dinner time and I have yet to shower or even attempt to be productive.
I did do the elliptical for 45 minutes followed by teaching a spin class this morning and it felt so good to spin those legs out after my 23-miler yesterday.
One of the supplements I take is Beta Alenine (you can find it at any health food store or online). It helps prevent hydrogen build-up in your muscles during a long run. I forgot to take it before my run yesterday and the whole time I was wondering why my legs were feeling so tired. I remembered at the very end that I didn’t take my supplement and now I KNOW that this stuff works for ME!!! I am also more sore the day after my long run than I normally am. Just saying, if you are into supplements etc. talk to your doctor about it and maybe give it a try if your doc says it’s okay for YOU.
After the gym I came home and made a ginormous omelet with some roasted broccoli and toast covered in APPLE BUTTER that the sweetest Bess sent me. Check out herblog. She is in incredible shape, has the best fashion sense and is the biggest sweetheart ever.
We only spent $20 on groceries/food this last week and we probably won’t have to buy anything until at least Tuesday. I am extremely proud of us. When we were dating we ate out 2 times a day. Ridiculous. We have come a LONG way and we steal a lot of food from my mom’s pantry, does that count?
After teaching spin I kept on running into friends at the gym and I am such a talker that I ended up hanging out there until an hour after class. I was planning on doing weights after spin but kept getting distracted. I remembered I had a husband at home waiting for me so I skipped the weights.
When I got home I started stalking blogs (like normal) and decided that in between each blog I read I would do one-two sets of weights. The more blogs I wanted to read=the more weights I did. I don’t know about you guys but I NEED a reward system in order to do weights and this one worked wonderfully!
If your eyes are sensitive to bright, white, florescent light do not look at my skin in the next picture, this is me pre-self-tanner. This is my hard core, hurting face.
Yes, that is a cake pan on the floor and I do not know why it is there.
So, now it is getting closer to 5 p.m. and we still haven’t left the house and I am still in my gym clothes. We watched 5 episodes of ‘Pushing Daisies.’ We are lazy.
We came up with a list of ideas of what to do to get us out of the house……….
Which one’s do you think we picked to do tonight?
Do you eat out more or less than you used to?
Where you productive today or lazy like me?
Favorite toast topping?
-I think this apple butter is my new favorite!
