It started bright and early at 6:45 because today was Lilly’s first salon appointment at 8 in the morn. I slept in my workout clothes (!!) last night, so it did not take long to get ready to go. Great idea!
I have never taken a puppy to the salon before, so I was not sure how long to expect it to take. I planned to hit the gym right after I dropped Lil off, so I packed shower gear in case her appointment took awhile. Good thing I did! When I dropped Lilly off, they told me to pick her up around 10:30 or 11:00. I had three hours to kill, which was just perfect for a workout and the few other errands I wanted to run while there.
I got a recommendation for this pet parlor from a teacher at school.
The ladies at PetAgree Fun Lodge were super nice and Lilly was playful and nice towards them when I dropped her off.
While Lilly was doin her thang, I did mine ~ and hit the gym right away. My legs have been so sore lately, as I mentioned yesterday. I decided to stick with ellipticals ~ no treadmill today no matter what!! It was so hard and I was so tempted to go hop on an open treadmill, but I knew it would not be good for my legs. They need a break. I couldn’t even enjoy my run after school yesterday because my legs were so sore. That tells me they need a rest.
Today, I spent 60 minutes on the elliptical at crossramp 9-10 and resistance 6. I always make sure I stay above 10 for my speed, but usually hang out around 11. I decided to go with the music ~ sprinting at 12.5-13.0 speeds when the music was fast, recovering when it was slow. I loved the workout.
This is when it gets ugly. I decided to hit the arm machines for some strength training, as I have been ignoring it lately. The very first arm machine I got on was one where I push my arms up above my head as I lift the weight (30 lbs in this case). On my last rep, oooouuucchhh!! I heard a little popping of some sort and now I cannot turn my head without pain. I must have pulled or strained a muscle ~ I am not exactly sure what that entails, but I am pretty sure there is nothing that can be done for it. Turning my head to the right creates a pain like one I have not felt in awhile.
But I kept going – I finished 4 other arm machines and inner and outer thigh machines. It is so crazy how weak my arms are in comparison to my legs ~ 115 lbs versus 30.
After doing the gymmie thing for awhile, I headed to the library. I picked up ten books about camping and identifying trees to use at school next week in preparation for our Bradford Woods trip. My kiddos are so excited!
Next, I stopped super quickly by Finish Line. I will show you what I purchased a little bit later ~ I am very pumped about it (!!!!!)
Finally it was time to pick up Silly Lilly! I couldn’t wait to see her! Here is the clean, fluffy, beautiful little furball I brought home to Ben!
Lillian looked so fluffy and precious with her new bow and bandana!! I think the salon wore her out ~ she is fast asleep right now!
By this time, my stomach was growling loudly at me. I was hungry and my lunch was random. I think this happens because I’m so hungry I cannot decide which direction I want to go for lunch, so I have a little bit of everything. Part #1:
A veggie egg roll, a Sandwich Round with FF cheese, and 1/2 can of peas.
I love peas :)
Of course, I was still hungry. Part #2:
A Sandwich Round with PB and banana slices. Also a small bowl of GOLEAN crunch & more banana slices. Delish.
Well, Ben has been working hard on the bathroom – I will post pics later. He is going to take a break and watch Purdue. I think I will take a break with him and have a snack. Then back to work and crossing things off that cutesy to-do list.
Enjoy your Saturday ~ Talk to you soon :)
