Today was my first Friday off at my new job. I get Fridays off during the summer. I would say it was a success!! I am totally digging the new gig at DISD. One benefit is I can work out any time of day. No waking up at 5am today! Yay Me!!
It’s been raining for about a week now so most of my runs have to be inside. I did sneak one in on Thursday but had to spray myself down with bug spray. YUCK. The mosquitoes are horrible, like swarming, hold on to your child or they will be carried away horrible.
Since today was an inside kind of day I picked out a treadmill routine from Peanut Butter Fingers.
This one was a doozy. I really, really, really liked it. It used intervals to get the backside of the legs, help you catch your breath(just a little) and prepare for more. The uphill segments are good to help engage the hamstrings and bum. You will definitely feel like you did a good leg workout because the front and back are both being used. 🙂
I finished this off the some serious stretching. I love the feeling of having a good workout behind me. Exercise makes me happy. 🙂 Hope you feel the same.
Today was a very unusual day for me. Work started an hour early. That means waking up early, packing meals early and leaving before anyone else gets up. 😦 I don’t like leaving the house before anyone gets out of bed on a normal week day. To top it off today was the kids last day of school. I now have a super smart 1st grader and 4th grader on my hands. WATCH OUT! 🙂
For breakfast I ate quinoa, blueberries and almond milk. Thank goodness I made a big batch of quinoa the other day or I’m not sure what I would have eaten.
AM snack was hummus with a yellow and orange pepper – super sweet. I love these! A bit pricey but I love ’em.
Lunch was a tuna sandwich on whole grain rye bread with veggies, an orange and chia tea. I have an intense relationship with chia tea. Just you wait. PM snack was strawberries and almonds. I ate it a little later than usual because work is keeping me super busy.
Now, this is where things get non-typical. I went to pick up the kids from Nannie and Poppy (aka my mom and dad the “after-school” play house). Nannie and Poppy asked if the kids could stay and spend the night since there was no school tomorrow and to start the summer off right.
What could I say….deny the kids time from their grandparents… um NO BRAINER!!
Previous plans for the evening out! New plans in!
New plan. 1. Trip to the gym for some cardio action. I used this treadmill routine – walking version because I have been having a big pain in my heel. I totally blame my shoes. I need new ones desperately, too many miles on them.
2. Brew Club. My man, Todd, is a home brewer with Shuttlecock Brewers. Every Thursday he hangs out with his buds. They brew/talk/drink craft beer. I rarely ever get to go so I jumped at the chance. AND scored some coriander seeds from one of the guys brewing!
Dinner ended up being a couple pale ale’s by the name of Revelations 6:8 and a few bites of left over orange chicken at @ 11:30 at night. Oops. I guess I went a little overboard with my free night out. Nah 🙂
