I love you sooo much!!
You make me want to burst out in song and dance as I run on the treadmill and pump my fists as I pedal away on the elliptical. You make my day so much better. You are awesome and I do not know what I would do without you!!!!
I just had a great workout at the gym! This is why I already love SB.
Here are the three things I thought as I walked in the gym today:
1) Do not stop or slow down ~ go hard the entire time
2) I have all day ~ no time restraints and no reason to rush
3) No pain, no gain
I stepped on the elliptical at 10:55 and walked out the door at 12:30. I felt so worn out, but in a really good way!! I loved not having to worry so much about the time or about school things I needed to work on…
My workout was completely cardio. I do plan to go back this afternoon for a workout which is strictly strength training ~ no cardio to distract me.
Here is a quick recap of the gymmie thing:
- 3.5 miles elliptical (Thursday’s “5K Everyday”)
- 3.5 miles treadmill run/sprint (Friday’s “5K Everyday”)
- 2 more miles elliptical
These were not leisurely jogs on the tread or magazine-reading elliptical workouts. I really went hard the entire time. At certain points of my elliptical workout I was running at 8.5 speeds. And at other points I was running 7.5 speeds at 7.0 incline.
This is one of the best cardio workouts I have had in a long time ~ it just made me feel great! I left the gym proud of myself…
Breakfast / Gym Fuel
Whole wheat wrap with PB and sliced nanner ~ the colored pieces are Welches Fruit Snacks leftover from my Bradford Woods snack stash…
And a Kid’s Clif Bar ~ honey graham
This is my Clif cookie jar (!!) Yum…
After breakfast and before doing the gymmie thing, I headed to Target and Marsh for a few groceries – I am really running low on certain things, especially sweet things.
Running low on sweet things = Eating some of Ben’s Girl Scout cookie ice cream last night —> 2 extra miles on elliptical today
^ My finds
I found a few treats (freats as we call them) for Lillian while I was out. I put them on the floor to let her check them out…
^ Please open them Mom ~ I can’t wait!!
^ In the freat bag were Dingo Cupcakes – Peanut Butter Flavor
^ Awww Lil
Lilly loved the new freats!! :) :)
Another find I am excited about = Mini Clif Bars…
^ Aren’t they cute? Excited to try these…
^ But added them to the cookie jar for now!
I also picked up these teeny bowls at Target for 99 cents each. They look like the perfect size for my lunch box. I already know Ben will be so annoyed because we have too many similar Tupperware-y type items…
After Target / Marsh / Gym, it was finally time for lunch! My stomach was growling…
Eggbeater whole wheat wrap with FF cheese slice and salsa and…
A (large) side of broccoli and cauliflower
While eating my lunch, I delved into this article about weight-loss plateaus…
I have not finished yet ~ but I will let you know what I learn soon. For now, I am off to cross some more tasks of the SBTD list.
Happy Friday Blogsters!! :)
