Good evening, dear friends. How has your Sunday treated you, thus far. Mine hasn’t really treated me as anything. Just normal. So, I guess it has treated me normal.
After crashing early last night, I woke up
energized and ready to go groggy and still tired at 7:00.
After enjoying my breakfast of oat bran & strawberries
And putting the final touches on our shopping list for the week, I headed to the coat closet (yes.. I needed a coat today since the high was 66* and it is rainy..it was so chilly that those oats up there.. were WARM!) before heading out the door to food shop.
And then I nearly died. Because I saw this.
In the top corner of the coat closet.
Very calmly, I said… JUSITN GET OVER HERE RIGHT NOW! (Very calmly, of course).
Then.. he got his favorite toy. The ant spray that kills all bugs.. not just ants. He even let me do the honors.
Mr. thousand legger tried to run away after being sprayed.. but he slowed down.. then then just fell off the wall (and at this time, I let out a tiny yelp).
Problem solved. We avoided the attack of the thousand legger. It was for sure the biggest one I’ve ever seen. Most likely, it would have just kept growing.. until it was as big as I was.. and then beat me up.
I am glad we were able to avoid that situation.
After food shopping, running, and boot camp, I came home to create this lovely little lunch:
And spent a majority of the afternoon having fun in the kitchen.. and playing on the computer. AND trying to get my Kindle to stop saying it can’t use my default account.. so I can get a BOOK!
I think I am going to start off with Water for Elephants. It is only $4.00 🙂
Weekly Workout Wrap-Up
This week, I was kind of battling an illness.. recovering from an illness (and still think I have something – as my energy levels are KAPUT!) I tried to listen to my body and took it easy with my workouts this week.. even having two rest days!
- Monday – Sick – NADA
- Tuesday: Leg Strength Training Circuit; 30 min HIIT Ellpitical
- Wednesday: 2 mile warm-up jog / 60 min Body Works/Abs Strength Class
- Thursday: 45 minute incline workout on TM -Run/Walk – 4.7 mi
- Friday: 3.5 mile run
- Saturday: Rest (The circuit training class that I was planning on going to was cancelled.. so I switched up my rest day from Sunday to Saturday)
- Sunday: 3.5 mile run; 60 minute bootcamp class
Between Friday’s 6am workout and my boot camp class this morning – I had a full 48 hours of rest. Something I haven’t had in a while. I am sure my body greatly appreciated it!
Post workout – I had a surge of energy this morning – but I am dwindling again. I am sure it is a combination of end of school year deadlines, getting ready for vacation.. and just being on the go in general.
This week – I worked my muscles hard at the beginning of the week. My workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday kept me nice and sore all the way through Saturday. I don’t mind though – because it means I am getting stronger!
Sticking to a Schedule
As you might recall.. last week I set up a schedule for each of my days of fitness – hoping I would be able to vary my workouts more. I feel like running has over powered all of my other workouts.. and wanted to try something else out – to try and get away from it.
I had trouble actually sticking to the schedule – because I don’t like feeling restricted to a certain workout. So – if I didn’t feel like doing what I said I would.. well then.. I just didn’t!
The pure fact that I had planned to vary and do more then just running.. was enough to help me do it! I am hoping this variation continues into next week.. I do know we have lots of rain on the way – and I have lots to do to prep for VACATION on FRIDAY. Oh hell yes! 🙂
