Bike Riding > Getting a Job

Yesterday’s Afternoon Workout

  • Bike Ride – Approx. 8 miles

Since the kids have been in school all day, I have found myself with not a lot to do. Danny suggested things like, cleaning the house, doing laundry, and getting a job. A told him to stop joking around and be serious.

So, yesterday afternoon I pulled out my new bike from the garage, grabbed my iPod, and rode about 8 miles. I didn’t go all out and go as fast as I could, so it was just a nice leisurely bike ride which actually was very relaxing.

Back to the part about getting a job… I actually do have a job interview on Thursday. Except its kind of one of those things where you’re like why did I do this? Obviously, it would make sense for me to get a job with day hours since I’m home all day, but no, I applied for a job with¬†evening hours that probably won’t even work out.

Don’t you just love my positivity?

The job is only 10-15 hours a week and it’s being a recreation attendant at my gym/park district. Plus, it comes with a free gym membership. We’ll see how it goes.

Sometimes I do things with no intention of following though. For example, a couple of years ago, I got the great idea to become a U.S. census taker. Danny took the morning off of work one day so I could go take the U.S. census worker test.

Yeah..no. I took the test and that’s where it ended. I didn’t want to be a census taker. Maybe I was just bored?


This morning started out with some delicious pumpkin coffee!

Last night, we went to Dunkin Donuts so that I could use my gift card to buy some K-cups, and they had pumpkin K-cups! That was a nice little surprise. I love all things pumpkin, and I love that it reminds me of fall. Too bad we’re still having 90 degree summer weather here in Chicagoland. I drank two delicious cups anyway.


Trying to stick to my goal of eating within an hour or two of waking up, I made breakfast at about 7:30 am, about an hour and a half before I went to the gym.

I had Kashi oatmeal topped with white flesh peaches. If you have never had a white flesh peach before, you have to try one. They are so good. They are a little bit more expensive than a regular peach but totally worth it.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

In case you don’t see enough pics of me in my car going to the gym, here’s another one :)

In totally unrelated news, I got a new notebook to use as my food journal.

I kind of think it’s funny. Keep calm and eat a cupcake, and it’s a healthy food journal. Do you get the irony or am I just amusing myself?

Hope you all have a great Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you ever do things without thinking them through? Or do things that you have no intentions of following through with?
  • What’s your favorite thing about fall?
  • Any workouts planned for today?
