Yesterday’s workout was a good one and since today is my rest day I figured why not go back in time and talk about what I worked out yesterday. When I woke up (um…11 a.m. that is totally acceptable for an almost ((less than a month away)) 26 year old) it was pouring rain. Not nice summer warm rain but slush rain. I am not that hardcore. I love running when it is snowing but not when the stuff coming out of the sky will drench me and freeze me to the bone. Billy was hardcore and set out to do 13.1 miles in 1:43….he is a rockstar. It took him a good 15 minutes to have feeling in his fingers again when he got home but he said he had a great time.
I also wasn’t in the mood to just run, I ran M-F and wanted to add some variety so….
I ran 2 miles (I thought I would spare you the 6,000,000 picture of my treadmill) followed by 10 minutes of high intensity spinning.
Yep, that would be Felicity playing on the TV and my iPad just in case I got bored and wanted to read. PS I am going to do a bike review in this afternoon’s post.
Speaking of Felicity, Ben is one of the main stars along with Rachel McAdams in the movie THE VOW that comes out on February 10th. Who wants to come with the me and the sis to the midnight showing?
After the spin bike I did five minutes of weights with no breaks to allow my arms to really feel the burn. That would be an Arby’s coupon that my weights are hanging out on….2 for 1 curly fries has got to happen sometime this next week.
I repeated that sequence a three times and ended with a killer workout in which I was never bored and I didn’t catch pneumonia from being outside. As I was cycling I realized that I haven’t been to the gym in a MONTH. That is crazy to me because I used to go daily but I am really enjoying working out outside or at home, it makes life a lot easier for me.
Next stop was Subway (you’d think they would give me free subs for all of this advertising, but no, they do not). This month the Chicken Chipotle sandwich is only $5 for the foot long and it was so good, maybe even my new favorite.
After Subway we went and saw the movie, ‘Real Steel’ along with the rest of Provo. I guess everyone had the great idea to go see a movie when it is raining. I only fell asleep for about 5 minutes during the movie so that means I liked it compared to the movies I don’t like where I sleep for at least 30 minutes.
The rest of the night involved salt and vinegar chips, the cookies I made yesterday and catching up with 30 Rock. We were going to go out to dinner but spoiled our appetites on junk. We got hungry at nine and decided to make bread for dinner.
We used THIS RECIPE for Honey Whole Wheat bread. Between the cookies and the loaf of bread (okay, it was more like a ball of bread), Billy fell in love with me all over again. Now our house smells like fresh bread, I am never leaving.
Do you have a bread machine? Do you ever make bread?
Do you like salt and vinegar chips?
-They are my absolute FAVORITE followed closely by Cool Ranch Doritos.
Any 30 Rock fans?!?!
How often do you go to the gym? When was the last time that you went to the gym?
