So I just checked my stats and someone from Australia read my blog today. Pretty awesome.
Let’s recap today, shall we?
I was up and at ’em at 7am and headed to the gym. Look how ecstatic I am:
Since I did a lot of strength yesterday, I decided to keep today’s workout simple. I did 61 minutes of intervals on the elliptical. No typo there- 61 minutes…why? Because the dang machine reset (or so I thought) and I had to add the time I thought was left to complete a full hour. I was off by a minute, and the machine didn’t reset, so it showed I did one minute extra than intended. Go me.
They open the cafe at my gym just as I am getting there in the morning and they are brewing coffee and engaging in other shenanigans, and more often than not, sugary yum yum treats with scents so delicious waft up to the workout floor (it’s right above the cafe with an open-air entrance) and I have one of two reactions:
2) Want a sugary yum yum treat.
Seriously, bad layout plan.
Once I got home, I made a breakfast similar to yesterday.. Except this time I used frozen bananas, chocolate protein powder and almond milk. Honey Nut Cheerios made another appearance.
Ahh, it was so good, and so filling. Only downfall is that it makes me cold all over. In addition to a rainy day and my sweat starting to cool down- I was in a bad place. So, the only cure was to take a hot bath. A REALLY hot bath.
60 minutes later, I was pruney and had completed my library book. (#forthewin)
(Here is where I tried tirelessly for 20 minutes to insert a picture of the cover and source the site from which I obtained said picture, but the stupid internets is not behaving and I did not want to omit the link. blahhhh)
Anyhoo, it was a good book. Super easy read…perfect for a rainy day/tub time.
Lunch was another batch of vegetable stir fry. Love me some veggies. Definitely got my daily requirement in this meal!
Why that picture is small, I don’t know. But I am using Tyler’s laptop, so that might be the reason. Sad to say, but I have almost completely forgotten how to use anything but Macs. I was only using one on a daily basis at work no more than two months ago! Oh well, I guess the memory chooses what it wishes to remember…
I am now about to show you a picture of my nail color. Ugh, I am so frustrated because my nails are so short. I got fidgety the other day doing paperwork and I cut them all off. Le sigh. But this color is cool, so it should distract you from the scary boyish nail length.
Again, small picture. Back to the Mac tomorrow!!!!!
The afternoon was spent at the mall for some top secret stuff. But, I did my awesome Jen thing and chatted up the sales associate at one store and scored some free samples! I can’t tell you what they are samples of, because it will ruin the surprise of what I was purchasing. I will let you use your imagination for what the heck I could have possibly gotten. Any guesses would be appreciated in the comments, thanks.
Oh, and I also got probably the most awesome message from one of my besties today.
This is what I’m known for, folks. Ridiculous consumption of all nut butters. I am sad to say it has been near a week since I have had any. It’s too expensive here. Would anyone like to send me some…perhaps from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s? I promise that if you do, I will send you some homemade cookies!! 😉
Dinner was homemade sauce and turkey meatballs with whole wheat pasta.
Since I can’t link from this computer (insert mad face here) I will share with you the recipe tomorrow. Here’s a teaser: there are shredded carrots in the balls! So delicious and nutritious. (#forthewin….. AGAIN)
We watched a movie after dinner, and a tummyache kicked in. Nothing to do with dinner, folks. That’s all I’m saying. It’s not cold in here, but I watched the movie like this
There are a few other things I’d like to discuss, but this tummyache is taking precedent. Below are the topics (these are for my notes because I don’t have a pen and paper nearby, and I am too lazy to jot them down in my phone.)
- Lululemon swimsuits
- Calgary Beerfest
- Copycat blogging (Ugh, I know I am totally going to poorly express my thoughts on this one, but it has been bothering me lately, so I would like to write about it nonetheless)
- At home workouts
- How much I hate washing dishes
- Positives and negatives of being a lefty
- Sleeping positions
- Favorite chapsticks/lip glosses/what-have-yous
Ta ta for now!
