What is the best way to get through a long week? Eat good food, run a little bit, and just be happy with the life God gave you! Monday morning Tim and I got up for a run BUT it was raining so we had to stay in bed. I was so
freaking happy disappointed by this but hey not every morning is going to be a beautiful one. This moment did make me realize that it is going to get colder here sooner rather than later and the rain will just keep coming so at some point I am going to have to come up with an alternate solution to my running habit! So after an additional 45 min of sleep I got up and got ready for work. I started my day with a smoothie on the way to work that was pretty delicious. My trip to Sam’s Club over the weekend provided me with the opportunity to purchase a very large amount of spinach so I made sure to include that! Nothing like some good healthy greens to start your day.
Four hours of work went by pretty fast so that makes for the beginning of a good week. I had lunch with Renee and had packed some tuna for myself to put on top of lettuce and tomato. I ate some garden salsa sun chips with it and had an apple on the way to my parent’s house for workout class! Rowing/CrossFit class KICKED MY BUTT! It was Angie’s birthday though so we had a ton of fun doing “39 Reps” of everything to help her celebrate! Tim came to class tonight so we really enjoyed working out together since we hadn’t been able to go running in the morning. The only bad part of the workout was that Tim and I had just gotten our allergy shots about an hour and a half before the workout and apparently you are not supposed to workout after those shots so I did take it a little easier than I usually do so I didn’t pass out or anything! Next week I scheduled this shot for Tuesday so this won’t be a problem again. Our workout contained…
- Rowing 1500 meters
- 39 Box Jumps
- 39 Reverse Curls
- 39 Sit-Ups
- 39 Plank-Pikes
- 1500 more meters
It was just enough of a cardio/strength training mix and was just what I needed to get myself geared up for the rest of the week where I will be attending a 3.5 day seminar at work. The best news I got all night was when I stepped on the scale and realized that I had lost about 3-3.5% It was just really nice to feel like my hard work is finally starting to pay off! That great news combined with the running still happening almost every day was enough to put a big smile on my face.
We ended up enjoying some Subway for dinner with my parents and had just a random mix of different kinds of subs my dad had picked up. I stayed away from most of the bread and picked out all of the goodies out with a fork so I didn’t carb overload. After dinner and some great conversation we headed home and made it early to bed knowing we had a tough run cut out for us in the morning.
