- Yoga-Lates – 60 minutes
Yoga-lates is not easy. Before I ever took yoga, I assumed that it was nice, easy, and relaxing. Not the case. The yoga-lates class that I take focuses a lot on the Pilates part, so we do a lot of ab work including tons of sits up and planks. I should have abs of steel any day now…
When I got home, Jaden wanted to show me his brand-new bike that Danny just finished building for him. Now, we just have to work on getting rid of the training wheels.
Breakfast was a bit boring this morning. I had Greek yogurt and a peach that I found hidden in my fridge. I always buy produce and then stick it in the drawers in the fridge and then forget it’s there. I guess I should either open those drawers more or put the food on the shelf where I can see it.
I love that this peach still has the little leaf attached. It’s the little things in life…
This morning was a little bit off schedule because Jaden had an appointment at the allergy doctor. We were there for almost an hour and half, and I was getting bored out of my mind. Luckily, I found a cookie recipe in Shape magazine to try out.
- 3 miles treadmill (2:3 run/walk ratio)
After the allergy doctor, we went to the gym, and I did a quick 3 miles before the kid’s room closed and I had to pick up the kids. I did more of an interval workout today – I ran faster than my normal pace for two minutes and then recovered with 3 minutes of walking for three miles. I was nice and sweaty by the time I was done.
I stopped by the grocery store to pick up some strawberries for my salad, but they all looked nasty. Why is finding good strawberries so hard? Maybe I’m picky, but I hate the bruised, yucky looking strawberries. I found some nice, fat grapes and bought those for my salad instead.
In today’s salad was:
- honey roasted almond slivers (not as good as the pecans)
- poppy seed dressing
Tonight is my final weigh-in. I can’t believe that 10 weeks went by so fast. I have a good feeling about this week. Hopefully everything goes good. Besides being weighed, I’ll also get my measurements taken so I can see how many inches I’ve lost. I never take my measurements myself at home, but one of the girls in the class said that she takes her on a weekly basis.
In other happenings…I just started reading Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs for Julie’s book club. Even though I’m only a few chapters in, I would recommend this book. It’s well-written and funny. Watch for my review coming soon.
Questions of the day:
- Is your fridge organized?
- Are you picky about picking out produce?
- Are you reading any books right now?
- How old were you or you child when rode without training wheels?
