We are counting down the days until the Chicago Marathon this Sunday! Danny will be running the marathon on Sunday and the kids and I will be there to cheer him on! I can’t believe it’s almost here. Danny has been training for about 12 weeks and finished his last long run of 8 miles last Sunday. I am so proud of him.
I woke up yesterday about 3:30 am feeling terrible. I felt fine when I went to bed Sunday night but overnight I was hit with a terrible cold. I feel a little bit better today but my nose is still stuffy and I feel so tired.
I spent most of the day sleeping and resting yesterday although I did venture out to get some groceries.
This morning, I was up for work at 4:50 am and then taught my Women on Weights class in the late morning. Even though I don’t feel the greatest, it feels good to get back on schedule.
I started out my morning with my normal breakfast – plain Greek yogurt mixed with one stevia packet, raspberries, and Special K protein cereal. I also had some egg whites and coffee.
I worked on back and biceps at the gym this morning before teaching my class. Some of the exercises I did included:
- seated rows
- barbell 21s
- pull-ups on the Smith machine
- alternating bicep curls
- one arm rows
- bicep curl machine
Although I still don’t feel great, I felt better after my workout.
After the gym, I stopped at the store to pick up a few items that I need for my Halloween costume.
It’s a secret for now….shhhhhh. I needed a pair of cheap sunglasses and luckily I found this pair at Kohl’s for only $2!
We have a Halloween party every year and this year it’s a little earlier than normal on Oct. 17th so I have less time to work on my costume!
Have a great afternoon!
