Did I tell you how I have a cold again? Yep, that means you have to deal with me complaining about a stuffy nose and scratchy throat all over again for the second time in 3 weeks, true friends stick with you through thick and thin right;) This time around my cold is not nearly as bad but it did keep me inside on the treadmill for my run after school. Let me rephrase that: my run after school and after a 2 hour nap. I am guessing that the fact that 3 out of 4 of my students are sick is how I got these germs, no matter how many times I Clorox wipe my room floor to ceiling….I am bound to catch it.
I ended up doing 10 slow miles while watching The Biggest Loser. Even though I complained just the other day about all of the drama on the BL I still watch the show and have to know who is getting sent home each week.
Really flattering lighting.
Billy hit the roads while I was running indoors and we finished at about the same time. Families that stretch together, stay together. Can you guess whose calf is whose?
Since we finished with our workouts and stretching at about eight we were ready for something quick, warm and filling.
Enter in chicken nuggets (from our Costco love) cooked to perfection and what else than a baked potato with sour cream on the side. We may have accidentally bought three too many containers of sour cream for super bowl Sunday and have to use them up before they go bad which I am totally okay with. 3 times as much bbq sauce and ketchup were consumed during this meal.
For dessert, because we all know that it had to happen, white chocolate TimTams from my dear friend Lizzi in Australia. She even included instructions on the best way to eat them to make you “so happy you could cry.” Lizzi, you were right and turning my cookie into a straw to drink my milk really did make me cry, thank you!
Today will be a day off spinning and maybe a little stair climber. I did squats on Tuesday and my legs have not been this sore in a long time. You would think that running a bunch of miles each week would allow your legs to do a few squats without being sore for days but it doesn’t, I am living proof.
Have you ever had a Tim Tam? What are your favorite packaged cookies?
-#1 TimTams and #2 E.L. Fudge…..I could live off of these and I don’t understand why Oreos are more popular.
How often do you do weights with your lower body? Would you prefer to do squats or lunges?
-Seriously, probably once a month but judging by my soreness, I should do it more often. Squats….I swear I don’t know how to do a proper lunge and I always get hurt.
Do you ever eat frozen meals? Any meals you take straight from the freezer and pop into the oven or microwave?
-This was our first time getting chicken nuggets and they were great. We also love frozen potstickers and frozen fish fillets.
What and where are you working out today?
