|Warm Up||5 min|
I was dragging this morning because my legs are ridiculously sore from last night’s workout. It was of a heck of a workout and my legs and butt were so so tired. So a few 11 min runs mixed in with a very sore lower body made for kind of a long morning and I was a little whiney looking back at it. Tim managed to randomly burst out in song in the middle of the run so he was clearly feeling pretty good but I was just all “oh that hurts” and “gosh my butt is sore” and “how many minutes do we have left” so now I am regretting feeling so whiney this morning. But hey, we aren’t all perfect right? Even someone who wants to love running is going to hate it sometimes. When I got home and got in the shower I was proud of myself though! Regardless of how I felt during the run it still felt good to look I the mirror and say “yep you made it this morning and you should be proud of yourself”. So my biggest learning of this morning… PUSH YOURSELF! Push yourself to be happy in your life. Push yourself to create a life with a wonderful person you love. Push yourself to be proud of yourself and make the good decisions you know you should make to be the better you know you can be.
This mornings run made me very hungry so I enjoyed an egg and tomato bagel with melted muenster cheese at home and still took a smoothie to go! I was just ridiculously hungry this morning for some reason. It must have been the mix of the workout last night and the run this morning but I felt like a monster this morning running through the kitchen picking up anything I could to put in my mouth!
For lunch I went to a little café with Casey and Tiffany! Tiffany just started work this week so it was great to catch up with her and see how things are going. I did a “create your own pizza” and had a pizza shell wit olive oil and salt and peppers as my base. Then I added on some grilled chicken chunks, tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, and topped it all off with some buffalo sauce! Oh and don’t forget the small handful of mozzarella cheese! It was DELICIOUS. I LOVE these pizzas and probably eat then more than I should but it was well worth it.
Tim and I headed to the grocery store and a few other random places to get some errands done when we got home. After stopping at Lasar Quest to get some gift cards for 2 boys that are having a birthday party tomorrow we went to Acme to get a few things. While we were there we also grabbed some stuff to make some dinner! We decided to get chicken and this spice that creates chicken similar to General Tso chicken and put some rice on the side. It was pretty good- I mean let’s be honest it didn’t taste exactly like it would have had we ordered it but it was a pretty good alternative. At least I knew where that chicken came from and how it was prepared so I knew that helped make it at least a little healthier for me and still gave me that same taste I way too often crave.
We spent the rest of the night cleaning the house and organizing closets. Very exciting Friday night hu? The house needed some TLC though… with my travel schedule for work and Tim just being busy at work neither one of us looks forward to the cleaning process nor it certainly is not a priority during the week. I try to concentrate on working out, spending time with Tim, and enjoying my evenings as much as I can so the last thing I want to do it clean every minute of the day. So. Yea I just pretty much tried to defend why my house is not clean during the week haha did it work? You feel bad for me right? Yea right! But it was nice to get those closets cleaned up. Out of the things below what do you hate to clean the most?
