Jeez Louise I feel like it’s been an eternity
or just 4 days since I’ve done a post with some actual updates to what in the heck has been going on! Last Thursday when we chatted it was to display the ridiculousness I encountered on the news. What can I say, “One man’s trash is another mans treasure!” Let’s pretend that applies here. I forgot to tell y’all about a fun new workout from Thursday morning as I was too busy bitching talking about Mama June’s rapid weight loss. Perhaps if she wants to start exercising she could try this circuit, it’s a fun one —
Earlier last week I scored some new workout swag thanks to the Christmas gift-cards I’ve been hoarding. The Lululemon fairy made an appreaance at the front-door with a delivery & then MO Running Company helped me find a new pair of Mizuno’s to brighten my day. New workout clothes are
better than sex so much fun.
Moving right along, Friday night was a wild one, I had a hot date with these guys —
CPR & AED Certification is a requirement for NASM so I knocked it out on a Friday night. It was an informative class & the 3-hours actually flew by. Then I made my real date take me to Orange Leaf on the way home (sorry for the crappy iPhone pic).
Then the mannequins, Jon & I all made-out.
Saturday morning fueled by a rest-day Friday & some Orange Leaf, my legs were ready to take the new kicks for a spin. PS. If you like listening to music on your runs, FitRadio is a free app with some great tunes. I have no clue who DJ Flash is, he/she plays good stuff though!
I ended up doing some sprint intervals that felt awesome with the new Mizuno Wave Precisions & was a great workout. You could do this outside as well when
the Armageddon weather Winter is over!
The rest of Saturday was spent running errands,
practicing CPR & cleaning the house, I’m pretty sure I vacuumed up about 4 dogs worth of hair. We wrapped it up with dinner at my Mom’s which ended with a nice pile of brownies. Thanks Mom!
shitty crappy sleep all last week so finally getting a solid 9-hours on Saturday night was much appreciated. I’m attributing it to work stress which is just lovely! Stress can be a scary situation with the way it effects the body. This article from NASM can tell you more about it. Sunday morning I felt rested enough to meet my cousin for a power-hour spin class. Thank god she checked us in there on FB so everyone could know what we were doing
No, in all reality it was great to go to a spin class with her & I hope it’s our first of many. Jon had made plans for us to meet some friends for a Dim Sum brunch midday Sunday. Isn’t that thoughtful? Make plans to meet at a place that serves Katie’s least-favorite type of cuisine — Chinese! Since it was Chinese New Year it turned out to be a festive environment & seeing friends we hadn’t in awhile was nice.
I just made sure to eat immediately before & after we went.
Sunday afternoon brought studying, nap time & some cooking! I had wanting to recreate an eggplant dip I had awhile back so whipped-up this recipe —
You could put this dip on anything & I pretty much did just that last night for dinner. Rice crackers, veggies, some leftover meatloaf. The dip has NO boundaries
This morning I jumpstarted the week with a workout with my trainer & am refueling with a Vega Performance Protein green smoothie
chock full of one of everything in the fridge! I’m off to work in a few so need to run.
How was your weekend? Are you a Dim Sum fan? What’s the last new piece of workout gear you snagged? Enjoy the day!
ps. Here’s some Monday Motivation for ya’…
